This review is from: The Dark Divine (Paperback)
Cover - I <3 it, it is very pretty.
Favorite Line - "Howy Shwit" & "Superpowers are a little more intense than armpit hair & zits"
Favorite Character - Grace

You know sometimes you can read a great book but you aren't hooked to it, you can put it down & go back to it... this isn't one of those books. This is a book that grabs you & makes you want to not put it down until its finished, it is a book that makes you want to cross your legs instead of going to the bathroom. It isn't a super high suspense novel (though it certainly has its moments), it is just so interesting & well written that you do not want to stop.
I have had this on my Amazon wishlist for ages & i finally picked it on PB a week ago, i was hoping for awesomesauce & i certainly got it :)
I loved the characters, the dialog & emotion between them is so believable. I thought the story was really great, I loved all the surprises through-out the book. I wrote down so many "favorite lines" in this book, it was ridiculous how many awesome lines the author could cram into this book. It wasn't predictable, i was surprised by the ending - it made me wish i had the next book in series like *right that second* to continue reading. It also wasn't wrote in a childish way, it is a YA book but it is written in a way that even non-YA can love it.

I would recommend this book & I will read more by this author.

This review is from: 44 (Kindle Edition)
Cover - Very fitting for the book.
Favorite Line - "My life is good, most days. But this morning wasn't like most days."
Favorite Character - Jesse

I wasn't expecting much from this book after reading some of the other goodread's reviews but i was pleasantly surprised. It is a really interesting story with twists & turns. It is quite dark for a YA but i like that - life isn't sunshine & bunnies for most teenagers so i think book's should reflect that. I am 24 so not YA but i still liked it. I was surprised by the ending as well so it wasn't predictable.

I would recommend this & i am planning on reading more in the series.

This review is from: In The Dark (Kindle Edition)
Cover - It is a fine cover, i don't love it or anything but i like that its different from most werewolf book covers (i.e a moon & a wolf)
Favorite Line - "When the end comes, it usually comes unexpectedly"
Favorite Character - David

I normally don't read multiple point of view stories so this was a nice change. I really enjoyed the book & the way it was written. It was really clear who's thought or dialog it was, no confusion like some multiple pov stories i have read.
I liked all the characters & the interactions between them. I was really drawn into the story & i felt like it ended so fast because of this. I would love to read any other books in the series & find out what else happens with them.

I would recommend this book & I will read more by this author.

Oh it was a 4+ for sure.

Cover - It is ok. Could be better.
Favorite Line - "No wonder i couldn't get anyone to have sex with me, i had bad breath, nest like hair & i smelled like a corpse"
Favorite Character - Cass

This book is awesome, I was surprised by how much i enjoyed it. It was funny, sweet & sexy. I laughed out load quite a few times. It had a great mix of emotions & dialog. I honestly was surprised by how the story turned out as well - it is always a plus to not read a predictable book. The characters were interesting & i was totally draw into the relationships between them.

I would recommend this book & i look forward to reading more in this series.

This review is from: Dark Surrender (Kindle Edition)
Cover - It is sexy without being in your face or crass.
Favorite Character - Min

I was pleasantly surprised by how good this book it. I haven't read anything else by this author so i had my fingers crossed with this one before i read it.
There is a lot going on in this story, about half way through i thought that it must be the end of the book but then it continued almost like a part two. It was cool.
There were sex scenes in this book, they were well written & sexy. The sex wasn't a major factor in this book, the relationships are the bigger thing. It is a paranormal romance not a paranormal erotica.

I would recommend this book & I will read more by this author.

This review is from: Persona (Kindle Edition)
I enjoyed this book a lot. I picked it up from Amazon UK as a freebie & I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the story. I will mention however that there are a few spelling mistakes, I would recommend the author get's it re-edited as this can put a few people off - infact i would be happy to re-read it & highlight the error's if that would help.

I liked the characters and I think i might of got a mild book crush on Liam :)
I am 24 years old so not really a YA but i still enjoyed this book, I think it would appeal to a variety of ages. It is not wrote in a childish way that some YA books are.

I will not re-blurb the story or give spoilers as there is not point - read the blurb yourself & then download the book :)

I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

As i have mentioned before, everybody needs & bit of dirty now and then - this book is equal measures of hot sex & story. Enough of a story that you don't feel like you have read a porno. The stories are interesting & there is quite a lot action (both sexual ;) & the other kind)

I would recommend this book to others as i did enjoy it & i would read other stories by this author.

It is actually more like a 3.5 but i didn't want to mark it down so i went with 4 stars.

Cover - I prefer the kindle cover to the paper back, i am not sure why though.
Favorite Line - "For someone who is supposed to be a knight in shining armor, you're acting like an ass in aluminum foil."
Favorite Character - Lia

I found the book interesting. The characters were likable & easy to read, the dialog between them was believable. Lia wasn't particularly weak or strong she is a mixture of both, she has wicked awesome powers. The other secondary characters are interesting, I find myself wanting to know more about Austin.
I thought the book ended too quickly & rather abruptly.

I would recommend this book & I would read more in this series or by this author.

3.5/4 stars

Cover - I think the cover is cool looking & intriguing.
Favorite Line - I actually forgot to highlight a fave, i really liked all of the poems though.
Favorite character - Raine

I didn't get into the book straight away, i was unsure for a while whether or not i would like the book. I did eventually get into it & get drawn into the story. So much so i was disappointed when the book ended.
It was an imaginative world & story that the author created. Lots of new & interesting ideas. I look forward to see more of it in the following books.

I would recommend this book & i am planning on reading more in the series.

I hate doing this - leaving a bad review is awful.
However this book need's re-worked. I could not get into it at all. It switches point of view constantly & it left me confused as to who's POV i was experiencing. I struggled through an hour of this book before i finally gave up totally frustrated! I honestly think it could be a good YA book if it was just clearer.
