Mature Content - Megan Erickson,Santino Hassell

I haven't been doing that great with reading (or reviewing when I do read) lately. But I want to make more of an effort again. So I'm going to try and put my thoughts into words for this one.

 

What can I say?

 

Megan and Santino are the perfect writing due. I get excited every time I see there is going to be a new book in this series and each book has been a hit for me so far. Each book. I am not exaggerating. I love them. They are like crack.

 

This is a lot lighter than the previous book in the series, Hard Wired, which might be a bonus for some. 

 

Beau and Zane like it rough. And sexually, they're compatible, but they do not like each other. Which is a shame, because compatible. But like every good enemies to lovers romance should have, they start to warm up to each other once they continue getting hot and heavy. Then feelings grow and they start wanting more from their relationship.

 

Both characters were great. Zane wasn't afraid to distance himself from his crappy family, but also loved his grandmother and had a great relationship with her. Beau was doing his best to recover from what his ex did to him, tried to add some positivity to the world, but was also able to admit in the end that a lot of it was forced. I loved that he supported Zane with his channel and wanted to see him succeed. I loved Zane's honesty and the fact he wasn't ashamed of himself.

 

Some amazing secondary characters here, too. Zane's grandma for the win!

 

I will admit to cringing at one particular scene and wanting to bang my head against a wall. I saw the incident coming a mile away and knew something would happen, but Lord was it brutal. Took away from my enjoyment a little, tiny bit. Not a whole lot, though, and I would still recommend this!

Ms. Banks Has Done It Again
The Little French Bistro - Nina George

Beautiful, breathtaking prose, romantic, succulent foods, vivid scenery, dreamy settings, realistic lovable characters that are easily connected with and so many life awakening quotable moments. The main characters are mature, well lived, full of experiences and yet full of wonder. Oh it's fantastic. I adore this author's style. This is the second book I've read from her, the first being The Little Paris Bookshop. I loved that one but this one held on to my heart a bit more and never let go, so far it's my favorite. Good luck topping this one Ms. Banks.

Toni FGMAMTC's Reviews > Thirteen Reasons Why
Thirteen Reasons Why - Jay Asher

I was really bored while reading this. I wanted to stop early on, but it has so much hype that I figured it got better. It's definitely aimed at younger readers than me so that may be why it didn't click for me. I've seen a lot online lately about teens or people with mental illness recommended not to read it. I think I get that the author is saying to step in, speak up, your actions have consequences, etc., but I agree some with the ones against it also. It's weird because you hear from the girl constantly and she doesn't seem like someone mentally ill or at the end of her rope. It seems more like a prank to get even, like you expect her not to have really went through with it and be playing a joke or something. I can't make the jump. Also, some of the kids deserved to get into trouble. One at least deserves major consequences, but some were just plain being teenagery and didn't deserve feeling like they caused her death. Seems like a lot of lives ruined just for some drama.

Cabinets full of curiosities always seem to come with a blood sacrifice
The Unfinished World: And Other Stories - Amber Sparks

About a year ago, I stumbled into a cute little bookstore which specialized in mystery, sci-fi, and fantasy of both the new and used variety. I felt it was my solemn duty to have a close look and about an hour later I left with a few (or three) choice items. One of these I already reviewed and today's was actually a signed copy titled The Unfinished World: And Other Stories by Amber Sparks. As the title suggests, this is a collection of short stories that have an eerie, fantastical vibe to them. Some of them are downright disturbing (the taxidermy one in particular stands out) while others are merely just off the beaten path into strangeness. If you like dark, eerie fiction that crosses into the borders of the unknown then this book would be right up your street. If you're looking to delve into short story collections but you're not sure where to start this also might be a good fit for you. As for me, I enjoyed a few of them but overall this wasn't my favorite of the short story collections I've read. (That honor either goes to Through the Woods or The Opposite of Loneliness.) 5/10
