Little Girl Gone

Little Girl GoneLittle Girl Gone by Alexandra Burt

I received this book through NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.

I tried to read this book, I even put it down for a few months and tried again; I just couldn’t get into it. It wasn’t the writing–it was more the actual story. Being a mother to a young child made all the imagery within the novel much more vivid, it made me feel sick.

This is the first time that it has ever happened to me, but while I couldn’t finish the book because of it, I believe my reaction is only so strong because the story is described so well.

Based upon my findings from the first third of the book, assuming the writing style is the same throughout the book, I would give the book 4/5 stars.

However, since I never finished the book. I will not be rating it.

Review: Black Cipher Files Trilogy

Blowback (Black Cipher Files series Book 1)Betrayals (Black Cipher Files Romantic Suspense)Burned (Black Cipher Files #3)Burned by Lisa Hughey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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

I’m going to do something I’ve never done before–review multiple books in the same review. I’m doing this for two reasons, the first is that I received the Black Cipher Files Trilogy as one ebook. The second is that it is all part of the same story, without NEEDING to be read as such.

The thing that I like about all three books (Blowback, Betrayals, and Burned) is that they all have their own plot, but added together they help make sence of the underlying plot.

All three couples are unique and well thought out, keeping the romance of the books on the steamy side. They all deal with high level government agencies and extremely sensitive information. Each couple’s story have their own quirks and I adored them all. Although Zeke and Sunshine (of Burned) are my favourite.

Review: Death and Faxes

Death and Faxes
Death and Faxes by Julie S. Howlin

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review through GoodReads FirstReads.

Tabitha Drake is in many ways the typical young-adult. Unsure with her love life, not LOVING her job, and just trying to make ends meet. She’s also a psychic. Throughout the book we see her struggle with multiple traumatic events and issues that unfortunately many young women go through. Most, thankfully, don’t have to deal with all of the ones Tabby did, but many, such as the other women portrayed in the book do fall victim and don’t get out. This book, while being a sweet romance and police mystery/murder, is also an eye opener for women who have been a victim of a controlling or abusive partner. Add in a psychic ability that she doesn’t believe in, which if she did she would have saved herself a lot of trouble, and the book is highly entertaining.

Despite the unlikelihood that all of these scenarios would all happen to the same person, this book, at least for me, represents the struggle that most, if not all, young women face; navigating the uncertainty that is the transition from adolescence to adulthood.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The beginning and ending were both traumatic events. The middle was mainly filler to me, there were some interesting aspects; childishly running barefoot in the snow, judo with Liam and being a perfect wine-taster (which is so unlikely its not funny). Overall I feel like this should not have been made into three books. I feel that it was more of a marketing move to have them split. With that being said I am still going to read the third book (as I bought it in the bundle).

When I hear “It started out as a lie, but now it’s love” I think Freddy Prince Jr in “She’s All That”. It’s a cute story, but my god what the f**k is wrong with Winter (Helen)?! Driving a long distance in the rain with failing eyes!? This girl is insane. It ends sort of sweet, but if you read a little further there is another book, where she doesn’t know who Liam is. As much as I liked this book (novella trilogy), It is basically throwing three crazy unlikely circumstances together and calling it normal.

Review: Clarity

Clarity by Loretta Lost

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The opening chapter of this book is amazingly vivid. I love that I get pulled into the emotion so quickly. The main plot of this book; leaving with the doctors, is highly unbelievable, but besides that I love this book. The characters are written well and the chemistry is beautiful.
When Winter first hears Grayson’s voice I was terrified for her. Fantastic writing!

Although I was a little annoyed with how abruptly the book ended. To be honest I immediately went and bought the other two books.
