re-read of Tortured
Tortured - Amanda McIntyre

What a terrible and cliched book. I can't recall how many times i rolled my eyes at the dialog or scoffed and their 'realistic' behaviour and attitude, and yet.... I loved every moment of it!
It's a similar feeling to those gross but delicious sour twisties that weirdly taste of lime - you can only handle it in small doses to appreciate its awesomness.

 

I had completely forgotten how this book ended, it was pretty bad. And i doubt I'll be re-reading it anytime soon, but i just know down the track, in another few years or so I'll start thinking about this brutal world and these two completely fucked up people and their insane relationship and the craving to relive their lives will emerge. And really who wants to read 'romance' about sane people living their happy lives anyways? Give me gore and revenge with a side dish of romance any day over that!!

(Side note: I did drop a star for this re-read, now 4 stars)

Reap The Wind
Reap the Wind: Cassandra Palmer Series #7 - Karen Chance,Jorjeana Marie

Rating: 4.5 Stars

Usually I rate anything related to Cassie Palmer 5 stars, but I have to admit to having a couple of issues with this book.

 

 

To begin with, whats up with all the crazy sex scene's? In general I don't mind them, but this was insane. Did Chance all of a sudden think sex was the solution for everything?! Oh bad guys are chasing you? Don't worry just have some sex, they'll get distracted by your giggly bits! Oh you desperately need to get someone's attention, it's a matter of life and death! Don't worry just start having sex with them, life's all good and time will wait till your finished.....
Last time i checked that's not how the world worked. Maybe I'm seeing this from the wrong angle, maybe it was all about catching up on lost time, maybe Chance was making up for the lack of coitus in the last book or two? who knows, either way I found it to be ridiculous.

Another issue I had was the lack of Billy! I adore Billy and the mayhem he and Cassie always seem to get in to when with each other, he's the true partner in crime, and yet in this book he was barely a cliff note, I missed him & their crazy shenanigans (though Pritkin did put in a good effort on his behalf).

And one last complaint, which is to do with the editing. Me, complain about editing!? I know shocking right? but that's how obvious it was. Not sure if it was just my copy (If we want to get technical, the library's copy) but sentences would stop in the middle and re-pick up a line or two down the page, half the quotation marks and comma's were missing, it was a bit of a mission just to read it, and figuring out who was actually talking was occasionally down-right confusing. Besides that though, love the writing as per usual, had quite a few laughs.

Everything else was great! The book felt a little unresolved, or like nothing was really accomplished but I did have an absolute blast reading it. The action scene's were fantastic, mind-blowing good really, that's pretty much where the four stars are going, the other .5 is for everything else. lol.

Side note: I'm hella suss of Fred. I wonder what he's up too? potential spy perhaps, or getting into his own mischief? Still I love Fred so I hope it's not anything to sinister.

(spoiler show)

 

Good book, highly anticipating the next one, even with all my complaints - though they did only retract half a star.

Is it talent? when one can be this disturbed but also romantic?
By the Fates, Freed - Patricia D. Eddy

So i managed to binge read almost all of this book in two days, finishing just before my deadline, like the champ i am.....

 

Anyways have to say this book had its moments. Some of it was really well written, I felt drawn into the interesting world and characters. The 3 different races were brilliant, not original in idea, but well thought out and for the most part well executed.

I love how passionate the witch race was and how horrendous and immoral the devil race was (even if i still think the name sounds weird) The human race was a little boring - but isnt that always the case? not that the human characters weren't great, but the race itself in comparison to the other two was a bit more bland.

 

The characters where entertaining, though the amount of sex in this book is a tad ridiculous. If i recall correctly the book even opens up on a sex scene? Then we have some horrid rape and torture and more rape, plus a death. Two weeks later the victim is screwing her 'mate; like a bunny after being imprisoned in the above scenario for 10 years? yea pretty far fetched.

Dont get me wrong the relationship was beautifully implemented and some of the things they said to each other gave me the feels, i just wished the author could have spread it (time period) out over a longer period, so the idea didn't seem so ridiculous, cause they did come off as a great couple that connected well. But the fact that the main character got over her severe abuse enough to have sex of her own free will in less than a month? nope i just can't run with that. Actually the book lost a star for this alone, even though besides the timing the after effects were handled rather well.

 

The change of POV was flawless and very well done - the name above, at the beginning of a chapter was extremely handy, but the characters themselves had different 'inner voices' so you could tell when you started reading who's POV you were reading from.

On another note i did notice a hint of Irish? Scottish throughout the book which i thought was a nice touch and something i rather enjoyed. I think Ireland comes off as a fairly magical place (must be the whole lepricorn thing) which mixed well with the rest on the story line, even though I'm under the impression the world is set in a completely made up place.

The book could have possibly ended a littler earlier as well - not that i didn't enjoy reading it! - but the twist with the shackle and the sister? bit much on top of everything else.

 

Overall a decent first book (if you can make it pass the brutal beginning and over look a few things) The characters made this book, and i enjoyed how the romance between the two main characters was innocent, we never seem to get enough of that in other adult books. yea it had its issues but the important thing is i enjoyed myself while reading and looked forward to picking up the book every time i put it down. I'm even looking forward to the next installment (though hopefully with less sex scene's).

 

 

Oh also in case i didn't point it out enough - if you cant read about abuse (physical, sexual and mental) DO NOT READ THIS BOOK. It is VERY violent and pretty fucked up. i probably wouldn't recommend it, even though i did enjoy the book itself once getting past the first few chapters.

Outlander, Brutal sexy Scots in skirts......
Outlander - Diana Gabaldon

WHY? WHY would you end a book THERE?!
Sigh i hate it when that happens.

but beyond the odd ending this book was pretty great, highly addictive! and sooo brutal. at times i felt ill while reading, not so ill i managed to put the book down but it was a close call sometimes. 
I couldnt imagine listening to this on audio, it would be beyond gut wrenching to hear such a strong hard Scottish man to cry out like that. Ugh. i shudder now just picturing it. and boy Diana was good with your imagination. the characters came off the page, their were so real. i feel like I know Claire and Jamie. the other characters are still wrapped in mystery but they were also very well done.
and DAMMIT as i write this all i can hear in my heard it the Scottish accent, which mind you took me forever to get the hang of! and i still came across words no and then that either me or my kindle could decipher. I wasnt overly fussed though, i generally got the main point.

The two worlds were fascinating, and makes me want to travel to Scotland even more now. though i must admit to the old Scotland of the clans while dangerous dd sound beautiful, if not a bit grubby at times. When Claire kept trying to go back to the stones, man i wanted to whack her over the head and open her bloody eyes! thankfully she did before it was too late. and her relationship with Jamie, man that was odd. I like for once how the women was the inexperienced virgin in the relationship, though all the references to animals totally and utter weirded me out at times. and sheesh there was so much sex at times, i grew highly bored of them just only doing that for days on end, luckily it never lasted for ever before they were off having another adventure. there really one so much sex i can read before it starts all rolling into one.

the end was a little confusing, might of been the drugs, not my drugs obviously..... lol. claire accidentally inhaled some and after that, actually even a bit before i was like what on earth is happening, but then she was suffering from grief.

so after all that possible incoherent word vomit, my point is this book is like the VERY grown up version of Brave (the movie) except pull it all apart except for everything that makes it Scottish. and add in some insane brutality, a bit more yelling, loads of 'adult activities' and thats pretty much the settings for this book. lots of rowdy drunken scots righting with other clans and loving their family's, lol. its my basic explanation. just go with it.

i had some good laugh's here and there and im looking forward to reading the next book - i have a sweet little sneak peak here, which im excited to dig into. and some authors notes which should be interesting. i wonder how accurate this book is??
