If it were not for the beginning of the book, where we see the effect of love on Drew (basically turning him into a hot mess), it would be easy to dislike Drew. He is talented, and knows it. He is sexy, and knows it. He is successful, and knows it. Not digging Drew? Just wait… wait until Kate enters the picture. It is wonderful! Continue reading

Author Spotlight: S.C. Stephens

Her debut novel, Thoughtless, an angst-filled love triangle charged with insurmountable passion and the unforgettable Kellan Kyle, took the literary world by storm. Amazed and surprised by the response to the release of Thoughtless in 2009, more stories were quick to follow. Stephens has been writing nonstop ever since. Continue reading

Author Spotlight: Diana Gabaldon

Gabaldon has managed to do what I believe is nearly impossible. She has not only managed to maintain her series for 23 years (yeah, you read that right), she has also managed to drastically increase her fan-base, have her books adapted for television, and reach bestseller status for all of her primary works in the Outlander Series. Continue reading

The notable difference between this book and others in the same genre is that our heroine, Kristen, does not just jump at the chance to be with the hero, Vincent. Although she wants to be with him (and really who wouldn’t want some Vincent lovin’?) she rejects him at first. And we are talking real rejection, not the playful “no, we shouldn’t” but then 2 seconds later they are jumping at him. Continue reading

Overall, I did enjoy this book. While it is not something that I would rave to my friends about and insist they buy, it was a good story.

This is a very angst filled book, which I do not mind, but the angst did not always feel genuine. Not to mention I spent about 80% of the book want to kick Jack in the face and shake Cassie until her teeth chattered. Continue reading

I started reading this book while I was on the phone enjoying one of those indefinite holds that we all know and hate. When I got to the quote below, I started laughing out loud and of course that is when they took me off of hold. As a result, my insurance company now thinks I’m crazy. Continue reading

As a reader, you really start to feel the internal struggle Elena is dealing with as she tries her hardest to be “normal”. She is basically living 2 lives. She has the pack at Stonehaven, and Clay of course, and then she has humanity in Toronto with Philip. It goes beyond that though. She not only hides her wolfy instincts, she also hides any of the abrasive aspects of her personality. What can you expect though, given that she never had a stable home. Continue reading

By this point in the Outlander Series, I am so completely and totally hooked that Gabaldon could write 900 pages about Claire and Jamie doing laundry and I would still love it. Not everyone feels that way, but I don’t think that I am in any way the minority in my opinion. Continue reading
