Review: True North (True Born Trilogy #2) by L.E. Sterling
True North - L.E. Sterling

It’s not you…it’s your DNA. Abandoned by her family in Plague-ridden Dominion City, eighteen-year-old Lucy Fox has no choice but to rely upon the kindness of the True Borns, a renegade group of genetically enhanced humans, to save her twin sister, Margot. But Nolan Storm, their mysterious leader, has his own agenda. When Storm backtracks on his promise to rescue Margot, Lucy takes her fate into her own hands and sets off for Russia with her True Born bodyguard and maybe-something-more, the lethal yet beautiful Jared Price. In Russia, there’s been whispered rumors of Plague Cure. While Lucy fights her magnetic attraction to Jared, anxious that his loyalty to Storm will hurt her chances of finding her sister, they quickly discover that not all is as it appears…and discovering the secrets contained in the Fox sisters’ blood before they wind up dead is just the beginning. As they say in Dominion, sometimes it’s not you…it’s your DNA.

1 ½ ★

 

I really was hoping this series would get better but sadly I thought it got worse.

While in book one we still got some plot , this book most of it felt forced and as pages fillers. I couldn’t really connect to the story at all this book.

Lucy was just TSTL the entire book, and really it seemed like she kept thinking she is ever so smart and trying to outsmart people when she really was just dumb.  And that was her without having  Price around and with him. Omg there are no words.

If that is even possible he as even a bigger a$$ in this book and I didn’t think there was anything sexy about him. He was just creepy, controlling and over all a jacka$$.

I had to force myself to finish it which wad sad because I really wanted to like this series.

I rated it at 1 ½ ★ and with hat will not continue with the series.

Review: True Born (True Born Trilogy #1) by L.E. Sterling
True Born - L.E. Sterling

After the great Plague descended, the world population was decimated…and their genetics damaged beyond repair. The Lasters wait hopelessly for their genes to self-destruct. The Splicers pay for expensive treatments that might prolong their life. The plague-resistant True Borns are as mysterious as they are feared… And then there’s Lucy Fox and her identical twin sister, Margot. After endless tests, no one wants to reveal what they are. When Margot disappears, a desperate Lucy has no choice but to put her faith in the True Borns, led by the charismatic Nolan Storm and the beautiful but deadly Jared Price. As Lucy and the True Borns set out to rescue her sister, they stumble upon a vast conspiracy stretching from Dominion’s street preachers to shady Russian tycoons. But why target the Fox sisters? As they say in Dominion, it’s in the blood.

This was one of those books that I really wanted to love because it sounded different and great. In the end I wasn’t really sure if I like it or not. I liked the idea of the book and thought it would have been really great but just needed a bit more polishing up . I thought it was missing some world building because there is not much , we sorta just get thrown in and that’s it. Not much background or other explaining and it just felt a bit dull. Another turn off for me was the insta lust , really she saw him and pretty much lost other brain from that moment on , I should call it insta stupid instead of insta lust , because that is really what happened . And overall she was not the smartest person and always found the most iodic things to do and get herself and others in danger. And Jared Price, umm yeah I think he was supposed to be one of those “bad boy” alpha male but really just came over as an A&&hole and not in a good way. I rolled my eyes way to many times and other times I was just angry at him. He stalkerish and controlling and that relationship was not healthy at all in my eyes.

I will continue on to see if it gets better and I really hope it does, because I think the story has a lot of potential. Overall, I rate this book 2 ½ ★

BASED ON A TRUE STORY by NORM MacDONALD
Based on a True Story: A Memoir - Norm Macdonald

Audiobook

First off, Norm Macdonald did such a great job with this book. In the beginning when he was doing the voices of a young man, an older man, his father - they were all just great. He should really look into doing more audiobook narrations.

And speaking of the beginning of the book. I was feeling so sorry for Norm's family and the family friend with the squirrel. When I started the book I was telling my husband (a huge Norm Macdonald fan), "He's hit rock bottom Danny. He's drinking, doing drugs, has no money, people are tripping him as he gets off stage. It's horrible." Danny said he hadn't heard a thing and he still liked him. Then the next chapters started and I was thinking, "Wait a minute that doesn't sound right." I went online and he wasn't even born where he said he was and he wasn't dirt poor. Norm was interviewed and he said that the only part that was true was when he said there was water in a river. So the next day, I get home and tell Danny it was all a lie - or not really a lie, fiction. 

Norm does use living people in this book especially his friend Adam Eget who according to the book was giving hand jobs under a bridge when Norm made him his ASSistant. The difference between ASSistant and assistant went on a little too long. 

Overall, I loved the book. I'm listening to this book and trying not to smile and laugh like a loon while I'm on the train. The gambling bit went on way too long too but other than that, a real funny book of fiction.

Perhaps
Speakeasy - Sarina Bowen

This is book #5, in the True North series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  To avoid spoilers, and have a better understanding of this incredible series, I recommend reading this in order.

 

May has always crushed on Alec.  Having him return her feelings would be a dream come true.  After a bad breakup, he is the one who rescues her.  With a little luck, she can rescue him back.

 

Alec cannot believe his luck.  Things with May around seem to be much better.  All the pain and grief that was coming his way seems to subside with her around.  With her in his arms - who knows what could happen?

 

This is best book of the series in my opinion.  This author is a must read already but this story just bowled me over.  I love how the banter and charm of the MC's just swept me away in this book.  I could not put it down.  The pace was good, the heat was high, and the story just really really good.  I give this a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
