REVIEW BY MERISSA - FALCON: Resistance (KBS Next Generation #1) by Victoria Danann
FALCON: Resistance (KBS Next Generation Book 1) - Victoria Danann
Falcon: Resistance is the first book in the KBS Next Generation series. We have previously met Falcon and the rest, as they helped Elora defend Jefferson Unit. Unfortunately for me (and this is nothing to do with Victoria Danann's writing), I still felt like I was reading about them as young boys, rather than grown men! I guess I need to bring my brain up to gear with their ages.
 
There is a LOT that goes on this book, and I do mean a LOT! We meet a new brand of vampire who decides to try and help the Knights. Jax is an amazing character and I can't wait to read more of him. Falcon and Gretchen are the main characters in the romance part of the story. B Unit is also back in town, along with U Unit. Sin is having problems. Spaz gets concussion. Wakey is his usual charming self, but seems to be hiding a secret. Like I said, a LOT.
 
Although the story flowed incredibly well, it is for the amount that goes on that I just can't quite give 5-stars. Let me just say though, this is MY opinion. I like to submerge myself into the romance, and in the previous books, although there is overall story arc, the romance still got the main story. In this, it almost feels like an add-on. Falcon and Gretchen move incredibly fast once she agrees to go on a date with him. 
 
Even saying this, I was still incredibly invested in this story. So much so that when I got clipped by a left hook, hit by a curve-ball that came out of nowhere, I was a complete mess! We're talking f'ugly crying, so consider yourself warned! Reading the page before, as it built up, I could tell what was going to happen, and I was in complete denial. I refused to admit what it was leading up to. 
 
Victoria Danann has once again treated me to an amazing story, with well known characters that I love, as well as introducing new ones to me that I can't wait to get to know more. I fell in love with the Knights of the Black Swan series, and I already know that I am feeling the same way about KBS Next Generation.
 
* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book and my comments here are my honest opinion. *

A Princess Next Door
A Princess Next Door (Rothman Royals Book 1) - Noelle Adams

I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

 

This is a novella, so it jumps right in with Amalie attending college in Minneapolis. She lives in an apartment while attending college and her neighbor is Jack. They've already known each other for almost a year and Jack has been interested in Amalie for most of that time - always inviting her out or to hang out at his apartment. She is always nice to him and feels attracted to him, but she consistently turns him down.

 

Amalie is actually a princess of a small microstate called Villemont, which is located in the Alps between France and Switzerland. She is keeping her princess status a secret from everyone because she doesn't want anyone to treat her differently, etc. Attending college away from home is actually against her family's wishes. They had planned for her to marry a man with money and Amalie is not attracted to him. She is very tied to her family. She feels a lot of obligation. But she does not want an arranged marriage just to replenish her family's bank account, so attending college in the States is a minor rebellion. Because of this situation, she does not get to close anyone.

 

Jack is very laid back and relaxed. He seems like a lot of fun and he's very attracted to Amalie. He helps her out when her apartment ceiling partially collapses due to an upstairs neighbor leaving the tub faucet on all day. This is how they finally spend time together .

Amalie is honest about her need to go home in a few weeks when college is over and so Jack convinces her they won't have a serious relationship, but will keep it casual. Amalie becomes very attached to Jack while Jack has been attached and serious since the beginning. He promises her otherwise, though, as a way to spend time with her.

 

The conflict is centered all around Amalie's family. Jack has very simplistic views and Amalie's life is very complicated because of her family. Both characters grow, make sacrifices, etc. It's a healthy relationship and the characters are very likable.

 

I look forward to reading Victoria's story. I suspect Edward (the man Amalie's family was trying to marry her off to) has a lot more personality than Amalie gives him credit for.

Manacle by Bella Jewel
Manacle (MC Sinners Next Generation Book 3) - Lauren K. McKellar,Bella Jewel
Manacle begins with Danny and Skye not doing very good. Skye is trying to move away and get over Danny, but it's not as easy as she thought. And Danny just wanted her to stay with him. These two love each other, but neither one is will to give into the other. This leads them on a horrible heartbreak when they each find other people to bring into their madness. 
 
This book was actually slightly disappointing. The other books in this series have been wonderful, but this one just wasn't as great as them. I spent half of the book hating Skye and the other half hating Danny. 
It was sad at times, and interesting for the most part, but the hero and heroine really turned me off of the book. It drove me nuts the way they acted so selfish towards each other and other people. 
 
Other than that I liked the book, and it was interesting to see more characters from the other series by this author as well.

Next (Kiss Series Book 1) - Rachael Brownell

I got the opportunity to read this book for Rachael. This is a beautifully written story. Parts had me crying, so be forewarned to get your tissues ready! You never really know how much someone means to you till it is to late. How do you live life to the fullest when the person you love is someplace else? Nobody else will compare to the one you hold in your heart. This is going to be an excellent series for sure. I cannot wait to see what is coming in the next book, I will be impatiently awaiting it.
