Oblivion (1.5 Lux) - my review
Oblivion - Jennifer L. Armentrout

While this book was enjoyable, it was nowhere near as enthralling as the books from Kat's POV. Her books snatch you unaware with her wit, humour and wonderful personality, sucking you down into the story, next thing you knows it's been 3 hours and you only thought 5 minutes had passed, and your still desperate for more.

So yea I did enjoy seeing Kat from Daemon's POV but he didn't hold the story together as well, it felt occasionally like it was jumping from one scene to the next. Plus his emotions didn't seem to go as in-depth as Kat's, and he was nowhere near as amusing. Sorry to say this Daemon but without Kat your kind of a bore!

Either way glad I read the book while I'm waiting to re-read the third book.

*side note: just after finishing this book I heard 'I like big butts' on the radio, pretty sure Daemon's personality was made to suit this song. lol, here's my proof -

want to pull up tough
'Cause you notice that butt was stuffed
Deep in the jeans she's wearing
I'm hooked and I can't stop staring
Oh baby, I want to get wit'cha
And take your picture

(So far this has been completely Daemon, I believe he's even said similar lines to this!! then his friends of course warn him away)

My homeboys tried to warn me

(Obviously the next part is totally Daemon)

But with that butt you got makes (me so horny)
Ooh, Rump-o'-smooth-skin
You say you want to get in my Benz?
Well, use me, use me
'Cause you ain't that average groupie
I've seen her dancin'
To hell with romancin'
She's sweat, wet,
Got it goin' like a turbo 'Vette
I'm tired of magazines
Sayin' flat butts are the thing

(Referring to his ex)

Take the average black man and ask him that
She gotta pack much back

It's crazy how well it fits, I cracked myself up in the car just picturing him dancing and singing along to this while thinking of Kat, possibly even to her. I must have been driving around with the biggest grin on my face! it's beautiful really, but now you can see why I said his thoughts weren't as deep or meaningful as Kat's, dude had a total one track mind. I know he's a teenage boy and all but good god. haha.

 

3 stars

The Hunt - Review
The Hunt - Andrew Fukuda

Was definitely unique,

Boy pretending to be a vampire, as humans are almost completely extinct and any that are alive live in fear. Boy goes to school with the rest of the vamps his age, he's disappointed in himself for his weird (human) behaviour and thoughts, wish he was more like others. Day dreams a lot about a ridiculous girl. Then gets sent off with said girl to the Hunt, where the last captive humans will be set free for the lucky winners to track down and devour.

(spoiler show)

and for that along gets 1 star. But unfortunately the book had a lot of faults.
I actually currently own the paperback, but thinking I might give it to charity cause its not something I'm likely to ever read again.
3 Stars.

A straight to the point review. Sorry, kind of short on time these days.

LOVED:

♥ The writing was really awesome!

♥ Mikey and Nunzio's chemistry was off the charts smoking hawt!! *My lady bits were very happy about this.*

♥ That threesome with David, though. *Hottest sex scene I have read in a LONG time.*

♥ Nunzio's dirty mouth. *I need a Nunzio in my life.*

♥ The overall friendship and banter between Mikey and Nunzio.

♥ Nunzio's eyes.

♥ That story line. It was so much more than just sex, there were issues on depression and addictions. It was quite the journey seeing all of this through Mikey's eyes. It was just so well written.

♥ I was really able to connect with both characters.

♥ How caring and protective Nunzio was of Mikey.

♥ I was captivated by the story because again, the writing was so great.

♥ How real this book felt.

♥ The funny moments. *I seriously laughed hard in some parts.*

♥ The secondary characters. David and Raymond.

♥ Nunzio's unconditional love.

♥ The angst that had me even more hooked.

♥ And before I forget, I just plainly loved Nunzio.

"Maybe you don't want me here--" He brushed his fingers over my heart. "But I know when we're having sex, when I'm in you deep, you don't want anyone else. It's just you and me, and it's fucking perfect, and you're mine. That could be enough for me."

"I don't think that's true."

●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●


Things that could have been better:

● Oh, Mikey how you frustrated me at times. My poor Nunzio.

● An epilogue maybe? I just wanted more of Mikey and Nunzio happy together.

●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●

'My thoughts had rerouted to an option I'd never even considered before: my best friend, my one and only, my fucking soul mate. Nunzio.'

●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●


Overall, I really loved this book. It was real, steamy, and just beautiful. I loved watching Mikey overcome his struggles even though it was very hard and painful at times. I even liked Mikey's brother Raymond. David, you annoying in a good way "kid", how I liked you. I think he needs his own book. I highly recommend this one.

LOVE LESSONS by Heidi Cullinan

"Sometimes they never do, and that’s a risk we take. But sometimes what they need most is to see us sitting still, patient, waiting. To understand that we’re going to be there no matter what, that we’re the ones who are always sitting there waiting, loyal, loving. Sometimes that’s more powerful than any words.”

●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●




All Walter Lucas wants is to live off campus. He is known as a casanova for his never ending list of hookups, and he just keeps adding more men to that list. But when they deny his request, they stick him in a single dorm with another young man who has a long list of his own, but this one is of his allergies. His name is Kelly, and his the complete opposite of Walter. Kelly is shy, a virgin, and waiting to have his Disney happily ever after with his prince charming.



●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●

"Walter, I can't. I feel things when we do this that I shouldn't. You don't feel those kinds of things, not with anyone."

Walter nuzzled Kelly's neck, then his ear. "Maybe I do, with you."

●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●


Walter is very cynical when it comes to love. But, he decides to show Kelly that the only way he'll ever meet his "the one" is by going out there and looking. The more time these two spend with each other, they closer they become. I loved watching their relationship form into best friends status, and then to so much more. I loved the pace of the romantic storyline, as well as the character development. There was only one part where I did feel the story slowed down too much for me. I loved the tension between them that a great slow burn. I loved the banter and just the overall connection. I was falling for both of them. They were just so damn adorable together. I couldn't get enough of theses guys.

●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●

'Need. It was need.
I want Kelly.
I need Kelly.

His heart beat so hard it felt like he was going to have an attack. It wasn't anything, though, next to the pain of what he realized that fervent beating meant.
I love Kelly.'

●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●


I liked that we got to see who Walter really was. He was hiding behind his cocky mask so that no one would see the hurt and uncertainty he was feeling inside. I loved that Kelly was able to bring him out of his shell and help him see that he is worth loving. The part that I mentioned before that caused the story to slow down for me was when they tried to help a professor at the school. I wasn't able to stay interested in it, but I did like that we got to see how caring and unselfish Walter really was. Overall, it was a really great book. Yes, it was overtly sweet, especially near the ending, but damn it...it wouldn't be a Disney happily ever after if it wasn't. I loved it so much it melted my heart for the both of them. I can't wait to read the next book in the series. I totally recommend giving this one a read to all those hopeless romantics out there.

"I know you feel the same things I feel. And I'll wait, Liam. I'll wait for you to tell me what means so much to you, because you mean that much to me."

●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●




Parker Ryan is successful lawyer working at a great firm. What you wouldn't know is, that he is really unhappy. It seems whatever he does is never good enough for his father, more so since the moment he came out to his family as gay. He thinks this might possibly always be the way his life will be. When his car breaks down, he meets Liam Davis, a sexy mechanic that seems to bring out his bad side. Their initial meeting was not very pleasant, but there is something about the enigmatic Liam that has Parker captivated. Liam has a past he wants to forget, one that he had ran away from, and one he wants to keep buried. He doesn't want to like Parker but spending time with him becomes his favourite time of his day. Each day they get closer and the tension between them rises until they can't deny their attraction for each other.

"Why do you want me there tomorrow, anyway?"

"Because you've made yourself a part of my life. Whether you know it or not, your quiet strength has helped me start to fix some of my broken pieces."

●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●


It was not hard to connect or love these characters. Liam was broken from his horrible past that just broke my heart completely for him. Liam was still a kind and sweet man despite it. I was super intrigued by him since we knew so little about him. His heart shone through which is what made me fall for him. And once his past was revealed, I hurt deeply for this man. I was glad he found Parker and also Paulie for giving him a chance.

Parker was the complete opposite to Liam in many ways. But they both shared something in common, they have never felt loved. Parker is an alpha male who was very caring. He protected those he loved. So watching him with Liam made me swoon hard. But Parker was also battling his own demons. He has worked his butt off trying to please and get some sort of acceptance or love from his father. It tore at my heart strings. He soon realizes that it will never happen. Liam provides him the support and acceptance he has never gotten before in his life.

I really enjoyed the book so much. I was not expecting the story to head in the direction that it did, but I am not disappointed at all by it. Sure it may have hurt, but the connection between the characters was really heartwarming. I loved watching both of these characters grow and slowly fall in love with each other. I enjoyed the pace in which everything was developed and revealed. This book hit me in the feels, both bad and good. I just really loved it and I was really happy with the ending. This was my second m/m novel from Melissa Collins and it has only gotten better. I look forward to seeing what other m/m books this author releases.
