Review: Crow

Crow Crow by A. Zavarelli
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I listened to the audio. So, for the purpose of this review, keep that in mind.

I'm not typically a fan of the woman narrating an entire book when there are multiple POVs. However, and it's a huge however, Tracy Marks proved to me why this can be done. And how I can fall for a male POV even when read and performed by a female. So, many thanks to you, Ms. Marks, for making me fall in love with Lochlan Crow and his sexy accent.

And many thanks to A. Zavarelli for writing characters that I couldn't stop listening to. Really, I fell for both characters. I wanted to know more. I wanted to see what they had. I wanted their demons and their light.

Butterfly and Crow are one hell of a couple.

And they went through a special form of hell to be together.

I can't wait to watch the other men fall in love. But I'm pretty sure my heart will stay with Loch.

Review: The Knocked up Plan

The Knocked up Plan The Knocked up Plan by Lauren Blakely
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sometimes you know an author is giving you perfection because they ALWAYS give you perfection.
Sometimes you have no idea what you're getting into because you're a complete moron who has never picked up a book by said author.

Guess which camp I fall under?

Yep. You know it.

I'm the idiot who was clueless. I'm the idiot who couldn't put down a book because every single page was perfectly written. The characters had chemistry, the story was driven, the problems totally believable.

Ryder was--and is--everything I want in a book boyfriend. Funny, sarcastic, attractive, intelligent, filthy, great in bed, and the list continues.

Seriously.

Where are all of my so-called friends?
Where are you bitches who let me go all this time without picking up a Lauren Blakely book?
WHERE ARE YOU?

Because I hate you all.

And I don't have time to binge-read an author. Especially one with this many books under her belt. Who is going to manufacture extra time so I can do just this?!

Anyone? Bueller?

Review: Elias

Elias Elias by Sabrina Paige
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I'm a huge Sabrina Paige fan so it's no surprise that I enjoyed this book. I will say it wasn't at all what I expected. I thought it would be darker, maybe? More controversial? I'm really not sure. What I am sure of is that the story was unique enough to keep me going and I wanted the HEA for the main characters.

Elias has a bad reputation in his home town of West Bend, but that doesn't stop him from being a good guy. His reputation is one that was made by his no-good father and the mother who stayed. It's a rep his older brother fed in to. It's a rep that he has gladly lived up to.

But he's really a good guy. He proves it time and time again.

And our heroine? She's lovely. Really, she is. I can't say that about all the women in books, but there is nothing I disliked about her. I wanted this relationship to happen like you wouldn't believe.

The misunderstandings are epic, but not irredeemable. And when those are figured out and explained? Perfection.

I kinda want to visit West Bend. Think they'll let me stay with them?

Review: Priest

Priest Priest by Sierra Simone
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I've waited and waited and waited to write this review. Not because it was a bad book, but because I didn't have the words to describe how unbelievably hot this book really was. I mean, hot, young man meets hot, young woman. Sparks are bound to fly. Add in the element of the forbidden fruit and it's a recipe for some of the hottest sex I've ever encountered.

Here is where I'd like to say that I listened to this book while driving down the interstate on vacation. This is where I'd like to say DON'T DO THAT! OMG. This is the kind of book you need to read or listen to while curled up in bed with a vibrator handy. A fan, a glass of water, lube (which is going to seem redundant because you're going to be ready to go without), and your favorite toy--or real live man! Doesn't matter. The point is you shouldn't listen to this while driving.

Jacob Morgan is magic on his own. I will listen to anything he puts out there. Not even joking.

But Elena Wolfe? Oh. My. Fucking. God.
I wanted to wrap myself in her voice and never leave the comfort of it. It's warm, it's sultry, it's so damn perfect that I couldn't get enough. It's one of those rare times I wanted more of the woman. And that says so much considering she was paired up with one of the hottest voices in the audiobook world.

Anyway, this isn't about the audio (although it is perfect in its own right), it's about a well-written story that left me begging for more. So. Much. More.

Father Tyler Bell can hear my confession any time he wants. And Poppy? Fuck. I'd take her too. She's magnificent. Together? Breathtaking.

Sierra Simone has a magical ability to make me want. She places each word in the exact spot it needs to be in order to pull the most emotion from a reader.
Want.
Need.
Love.
Hate.
Fear.
Pain.
Pleasure.
Arousal.
I hit every single one of these while reading Priest. It's a story I wish I could have drawn out. It was a story that needed to end so I could see what happened to the characters. It's a story that I will revisit very soon because Tyler and Poppy were electric.

Review: A Little Bit Like Love

A Little Bit Like Love A Little Bit Like Love by Brooke Blaine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 He Was Fatal Stars

M/M. My weakness. Thank you, Brooke Blaine, for giving me M/M and second chance all in one neat little package. And by neat and little, I mean not neat, not little. These two were messy and beautiful and they deserved their second chance.

It meant something to me. Our friendship. You in my life. It meant everything. And I miss you every goddamn day.
Ripped apart by a force neither expected--although they should have--Jackson and Lucas have each dealt with the loss of the other in unique ways. Jackson, by burying himself in work; Lucas by burying himself in one-night stands.

I love it when couples are given another shot at love and life together. I love it when I can watch two people who are heartbroken, realize they can only be happy with each other. I always want the HEA. Always. Even when it doesn't seem like it's going to work, I want that HEA.

Do Jackson and Lucas get their HEA? You should probably read it to find out.

"Waiting for you....Just you...Always you. Even when you're a fucking prick."
