⇝My Thoughts⇜

 

This was an underdeveloped story with wishy-washy timelines.  By the halfway point I was feeling, overall, that this was maybe a 3 star read. It was kind of okay.  And then she went and screwed up her timelines of shit, and I was pissed off.  From there the whole ending was just whatever for me.

 ⇝Sex Factor⇜ Yes. Once I think, or two possibly…but I don't know…or care.

Reseña Honor Student - Teresa Mummert
Honor Student - Teresa Mummert

Título: Honor Student
Autor/a: Teresa Mummert
Género: Erótico, Romántico

SAGA
Publicación: 07 de Marzo de 2012

 

SINOPSIS:

Emma vive una vida muy auto destructiva, apenas progresando en la universidad. Su mundo es puesto patas arriba después de conocer al señor Honor, su nuevo profesor de historia cuya idea de disciplina puede ser un poco demasiado para Emma de manejar. Mientras tratan de descubrir su nueva relación, también tienen que tratar con la muy real posibilidad de que alguien ha descubierto su secreto y está tratando de herirlos. Pero el Sr. Honor está guardando unos pocos secretos sobre él mismo de Emma.
 
RESEÑA:
Primero que todo, este libro está restringido con respecto a la edad, está en ustedes leerlo o no.
Este libro, durante la trama, en ningún momento me hizo perder el interés. Y como consecuencia de ello me lo leí en un día. No es que sea corto sino que cuando una trama me atrapa, no paro de leer.
Mas que centrarse en lo romántico, se baso más en lo más primitivo del ser humano y sus relaciones. Obviamente este profesor tiene una idea de disciplina bastante diferente.
Es contado en primera persona y desde el punto de vista de Emma.
Me gusto, no lo niego, pero aunque me haya encantado, algo le falto.
No sé decirles qué es, eso va en los gustos de cada uno.
Me gusto más el personaje masculino (no me crean machista), pero no me atraen mucho las historias en las que la chica es solitaria, auto destructiva y al toque de conocer a alguien, se lanza a fondo (me refiero a las amistades).
 
En cuanto al tema del libro, trata sobre lo mismo que en Cincuenta Sombras, sólo que rotan los roles.
 
No quiero decir que porque se parezcan, le haya copiado la idea ni nada por el estilo.
 
Es un romance prohibido desde el comienzo hasta el final, y el problema radica en que alguien parece haber descubierto su secreto.
 
¿Quieres saber quién? ¿Y si el Sr. Honor oculta otros secretos?
 
 
4/5

Review of White Trash Beautiful by Teresa Mummert
White Trash Beautiful - Teresa Mummert

Book Blurb

 

A word-of-mouth bestseller that’s captivating readers with its honesty, grit, and headstrong heroine, White Trash Beautiful is a story for anyone who has ever felt trapped in life, cheated by love—and longed for something more . . .

Cass Daniels isn’t waiting for her knight in shining armor. She knows that girls like her don’t get a happily ever after. Not if you live in a trailer with your mom, work at a greasy spoon diner, and get leered at by old men. Maybe that’s why she puts up with Jackson—her poor excuse for a boyfriend, who treats her like dirt. Cass has learned to accept her lot in life. That is, until he walks into her diner. . . .

His name is Tucker White, and he’s different from any man Cass has ever known. Tall, tattooed, and bad-ass gorgeous, he’s the lead singer of the rock band Damaged. From the moment they meet, Tucker sees something in Cass he just can’t shake. Something beautiful. Something haunted. Something special. And he’s determined to find out what it is—if only he can get her to open up and let him in. . . .

 

My Review

 

 

I really wanted to like this book...I mean the name...the cover...I just knew I was going to be hooked. Eh, not so much.

 

The writing style seemed a bit rushed to me. In what world does a drop dead gorgeous rock star waltz into a run down diner to rescue a sullen waitress he just met. There was little interaction to warrent his night in shining armor routine.

 

The story was not well developed and left me full of questions...Why? Why? Why?

 

I tried to connect with Cass and wrap my head around why this young beautiful woman would allow herself to continue to live in the crappiest of situations. From her abusive good for nothing junkie boyfriend to her drugged out crackhead mother. Why Cass? Why???

 

And the decisions she makes....damn Cass, you gotta brain honey, use it!

 

 

Then there is Tucker....what do we know about Tucker?

 

Not much at all. He's a rock star. He loves Cass. BUT WHY???

 

The characters were not fully developed and lacked any real depth, especially Tucker. I came away from the book feeling like I hardly know anything about him and still having the question, WHY HER? 

 

 

I just need a reason why Tucker falls instantly in love with Cass without having an actual conversation with her other than ordering a burger and a beer! Am I the only one frustrated by this?!?! Sorry, not sorry, this really bugs me!!!

 

 

I really wanted to love this book but it did not resonate with me. It's not relatable, it's not believable and most of it did not make much sense. 

 

The ending was over the top and left me feeling a bit unsettled. 

 

 

Overall I rate this book 1 out of 5 stars and would not recommend. 

 

It was not my cup of tea to say the least!

review SPOILER ALERT! 2015-09-27 19:05
Hmm...
Pretty Little Things - Teresa Mummert

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars. The jury's still out regarding this book. On one hand, it started out with a compelling story, but then the plot unraveled and tidied up so quickly, it felt a bit rushed. 

 

Before I start - huge spoiler here. The story doesn't progress naturally. The actual plot unravels as you get further into the story in flashbacks, because for some reason the author didn't think we could handle the truth in a straight fashion. 

 

Colin is a member of a cult named the Descendants of God. Their leader, Taylor, is a horrible, sick man who instead of helping the poor and weak, preys on them. Throughout time, he's fashioned and molded Colin to take after him. 

 

No matter how depraved, Colin blindly does whatever Taylor tells him to do - the lashes on his back a reminder of the times when he didn't. But that all changes when Annabel joins the commune.

 

Unlike many of the people who found their way to Taylor amid drug abuse, prostitution and the like, Annabel and her mother came to Taylor with the thought of doing good for the community. They thought to contribute by doing charity work, never knowing the danger they had walked into. 

 

The next day after arriving into the commune, Annabel (a young teenager) is separated from her mother, who has mysteriously been taken ill with food poisoning. It was the last time Annabelle sees her alive.

 

Three weeks pass, and her only companion is Colin. Through this time, they bond and when Taylor asks Colin to take Annabel for himself, Colin realizes he can't bring himself to do anything to the innocent Annabel.

 

Colin and Annabel escape the compound, finding refuge with a lawyer named Conner, who takes them in as his children. Colin and Annabel act as if they are brother and sister, though they both harbor feelings for one another. 

 

But that doesn't stop Colin from keeping up appearances - and this is where the story unravels for me - and he sleeps with half the town's women. The part that really grossed me out was when Annabel catches him in the act with someone else and she stays to see them. What??? 

 

 

Annabel also dates and invites the town loser and druggie, Jacob, to her 18th party, which drives Colin to a rage. Things spiral from there. 

 

From reading the book, it seems as if Colin and Annabel are in hiding from Taylor, and almost fear being found. But then one day, Colin can't take being close to Annabel and he leaves. Annabel is desperate to search for him and conveniently finds Taylor's hideaway address (since Taylor's been hiding from the police) in Conner's office. 

 

What?? Why was this so easy to find? And why didn't they call the police on Taylor? Anywho, Annabel goes off to the address, hoping to find Colin, but runs into Taylor.

 

In the meantime, Conner finds out where Annabel left to and locates Colin - who's been MIA for it seems like forever. Luckily, Colin happens to drop in at just the right moment. 

 

The story then goes into fast forward let's-wrap-this-up-already mode and I'm left wondering, "Should I go back and re-read this? Did I miss something?" 

 

 

Ugh - not bothering to. This just wasn't what I was expecting. Another book with an amazing cover that just didn't do it for me. :(
