Review: 32 Lays Later: The List 2

32 Lays Later: The List 232 Lays Later: The List 2 by Kate J. Squires
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I recieved this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I read Part One a little while back and really enjoyed it. I liked the characters, including the two main characters in Part Two.

Unfortunately I did not enjoy this book. The concept was unique and the titles of the movies were hilarious, but I found it to be off. There seemed to be no connection between the main characters and all three were annoying and immature in their actions.

The entire book is one big sex scene and while it is hot, it’s not the greatest I’ve ever read.

Review: College Bound

College Bound
College Bound by Lilia Ford
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I received this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

To be honest this has been one of the hardest books to review so far this year. It’s been three days since I put it down and I couldn’t figure out how I felt about it.

If I were to base my review entirely off of my feelings while reading the book I would give it two, maybe three stars. I was thoroughly disgusted and repulsed at times, yet found myself rooting for Natalie and Gareth (and getting slightly turned on).

After a few days of reviewing my thoughts I’ve come to realise that by having such conflicting feelings about a single piece of writing, doesn’t make the writing bad; it means the writer is really good.

Considering there is also a warning that the book contains “multiple scenes of bondage, spanking, ménage, and one potentially triggering scene of attempted rape” I’ve come to the conclusion that I love Lilia Ford’s writing and will be on the look out for her future works.

Review: 30 Lays in 30 Days

30 Lays in 30 Days
30 Lays in 30 Days by Kate J. Squires

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I received this book in exchange for an honest review through NetGalley.

Right off the bat the title caught my eye. The main plot of the story laid out so openly, I was intrigued.

I was hooked right away, the imidate jump into Cat (Catherine)’s new, bolder, experimental self is exciting to witness. The intense chemistry between Jackson and Cat was extremely steamy and should have been enough foreshadowing, but Kate J. Squires left out just enough to keep the reader guessing for the rest of the book.

Cat, with the help of her best friend (and new roommate), and her one night stand, Jackson, sets out to complete a list of ’30 Lays in 30 Days’ to help her perge her controlling ex-husband (the only man she’s ever been with–besides Jackson) from her system. Surpassing her initial fear Cat is able to check off quite a few items, including sex with a celebrity (who was also older–another check), sex with a woman, and sex in public, before she hit a snag. A masked suiter was too rough with her ‘back door’ and she ran to the closest safe place she knew; Jackson’s house.

He helps her clean up and offers a little more help, once again of the sexual nature. Hesitant, only because she wanted to complete the list with different guys, finally she agrees and sparks begin to fly. Richard (the ex) comes back with a vengeance, he wants Cat back and isn’t afraid to blackmail her with her sick father.

After an extremely steamy weekend away, Cat and Jackson find Richard handcuffed to her bed and Jackson (rightfully) gets mad. Cat acts, to the reader that she is going to submit to Richards demands, but in a very unexpected twist she takes Richard down, gets her fair share of their money and sets herself free.

The happily ever after she wants is only disturbed by accidentally mistaking Jackson’s sister for a new beau, but all is well in the adorable story.

This book has it all, love, sex, revenge, finding yourself, and romance.

I’m giving it a rare five stars, because I think that this book is extremely well written, it’s funny and sexy and I would recommend it to all twenty-somethings.
