Review: "Bound Gods: Betrayed" (Bound Gods, #3) by Adrienne Wilder
Bound Gods: Betrayed - Adrienne Wilder

This was NOT a romance, not even in the broadest sense, but simply torture porn.

 

75% of this book was just torture scene after torture scene between a sadist, a pain slut and an idiot. None of it was even remotely arousing or sexy, but just cringeworthy and painful to read. I skimmed through most of it.

 

The rest consisted of boring dialogues, repetitive explanations, and a plot that hasn't really moved any forward since the last book. I really don't care about any of the characters enough to find out what's gonna happen to them, nor do I want to continue with this series.

 

And that's why I call it quits here.

Truly not for the faint of heart, and I really, REALLY hate everything about sounding *cringes and screams internally* and especially reading about it in excruciating detail. SO not my kink. And yet I can't stop reading this series.

A promising and intense start to this series. I'm intrigued.

review SPOILER ALERT! 2016-11-09 20:12
Review: "1/27: An ICoS Anthology" (In the Company of Shadows, #5) by Santino & Ais
1/27: An ICoS Anthology - Ais,Santino Hassell

 

"1/27 answers the important question: What happens next?"

 

Well, wasn't this just a huge fucking disappointment.

 

 

I thought this anthology would explain some of the questions that remained after "Fade". Maybe give me some answers or even some closure.

 

But instead, this was just a set-up for a possible sequel that - according to the authors in the author's note at the end of the book - "is now about 85% more likely than it ever had been before". Um, fuck you very much?

 

Everything that went down with the Agency in "Fade" was nullified by the fact that a new and even more dangerous Agency was arising, and everyone who managed to escape in the last book was now just miserable and in a bad place.

 

I cannot BELIEVE that Boyd and Sin's very last scene ended with them being in a jail cell. Or that my beloved Ryan ended up as an addict.

 

I've spent weeks MONTHS with these characters. I've read thousands and thousands of pages and this is how it ends? With a 85% chance of a sequel?

 

Sorry, but this is NOT how a long-ass series like this should bow out.

Review: "Afterimage" (In the Company of Shadows, #2) by Sonny & Ais
Afterimage - Ais,Santino Hassell

"So why aren't the two of you gay together anymore?"

~Emilio~

 

*** SPOILER ALERT! ***

*** THIS IS NOT A DRILL! ***

*** SPOILER ALERT! ***

 

Ok, NOW we're fucking talking!

 

While I stand by my (very correct) opinion on "Evenfall" (too long, too repetitive, too many unnecessary details/events/chapters), you'll just have to trust me on this:

 

"Afterimage" surpasses its predecessor in every way!

 

 

Part of my struggle with this series is that just when I had decided that maybe it might not be for me, it had to go and give me one of the most emotional reads in months that left me completely satisfied. But on the other hand? I'M AN EMOTIONAL MESS RIGHT NOW.

 

 

The writing was noticeably tighter and faster-paced than in the first book, and it managed to convince me that this series really is as good as everyone claims it is.

 

 

The reason why “Afterimage” was so incredible is that it gave me all the angst, emotions and ugly tears while also remaining to give me a totally fascinating view into not just one (deeply damaged) character's head, but two.

 

 

I was so frustrated at times with Boyd and Sin's actions and behavior that I screamed. I SCREAMED.

 

That idiotic thing with Ann, Sin? And your reasons for it? That was some rude ‘tude, dude. Especially when I'm pretty sure that you very well KNOW the definition of cheating since you talked about it in "Evenfall", you stupid fucking idiot. (But also, farewell for now until the next book, you mega-dreamboat. #TeamSin)

 

 

That idiotic thing with Kassian, Boyd? It was definitely HAWT, I'll give you that. But also, what a hell of a way to deeply hurt Sin, you asshat.

 

 

The secondary characters remain a pleasure to behold. Ryan, Kassian (I don’t know about you, but I DEFINITELY ship these two), Carhart and also all of the Level 10 trainees.

 

 

And let's not forget about Emilio. I lolled so hard whenever he opened his shameless and unfiltered mouth. His addition to this series is a gift, a treasure, and I had to put down my Kindle at the end of the book and smile out the window for a minute, he just made me that happy.

 

 

Guys, what a great and emotional series this is turning out to be. “Afterimage” was exactly the addictive and mind-blowing book that I've been waiting for. It not only rectified all my complaints from "Evenfall", but paid off with compelling plot lines, captivating suspense and fascinating characterizations.

 

 

I just can’t quit you, ICoS!
