The Golden Lily (Bloodlines #2) by Richelle Mead

TheGoldenLily
I was so worried about writing this review and P***ing off all my blogger & Goodreads friends, but hey what can I say, I was not impressed by this book. Everyone seemed to love and adore it, but for me it just dragged and the storyline seamed to go nowhere until around page 300 of a book that only has 419 pages, and then it just ends out of nowhere. And Sydney is a bore just like that awful boyfriend she had for about a minute. I really think Brayden's character was a waste of time, maybe by cutting his crap out of the book it could have pushed the storyline a little sooner than page 300.

Even though it wasn’t the greatest book ever, it was still interesting enough for me to keep reading it. I really do like Adrian, Eddie, Angeline & Jill. I like where the love triangle is going with Eddie, Jill & Angeline. All three deserve someone but who? Adrian really really deserves his happy ending, but with Sydney !!!!? I’m not so sure, we will just have to wait and see.

Fifty Shades Freed (Fifty Shades #3) by E.L. James

PhotobucketI’m so sad that this is the last in the series....or is it? The very last line on the last page has me questioning whether E.L. James is going to give us more and I sure hope she does!

In this book we get so much, a wedding for one, for two I won’t tell you...lol. I loved the journey to understanding one another, especially Christian and his kinking fuckery. Christian had to face his fears in this book and move on from them. And Ana is a wonderful, caring, loving wife through it all.

A definite must read if your into erotica books.

Fifty Shades Darker (Fifty Shades #2) by E.L. James

PhotobucketWOW, I likie very much....lol

This was much better than the first book in this series. The love story between Ana and Christian continues and its an emotional roller coaster. This book is so much more than the BDSM I couldn’t grasp in the first book, it’s about understanding one another and falling in love. The story was very faced paced, keeping me on the edge of my seat, heart wrenching and addicting. What I really love about this book is Ana really sets the pace for the relationship and its Christian that has to adapt. Oh and you get a rare glimpse of submissive Christian....LUVS IT!

Fifty Shades of Grey (Fifty Shades #1) by E.L. James

I’m kind of stuck on how I want to review this book. For weeks I keep hearing " You have to read Fifty Shades of Grey, Best book all year".....blah, blah, blah.

I liked the book, on Goodreads I gave it a **** rating. The characters were great. The girl (Anastasia Steele) is a sweet, down to earth VIRGIN....yes virgin. The male lead (Christian Grey) is handsome and rich but has some major mommy issues.

Christian likes to keep his woman or subs in line, Christian is into the BDSM lifestyle and poor virgin Ana has no idea what she is getting herself into.

I had a bit of a hard time getting past his BDSM ways. Now I’m not a prude and what girl doesn’t like a guy to take control, maybe pull my hair or slam me up against a wall, but the rough spanking scenes that leaves Ana in tears also almost left me in tears too! He liked causing Ana pain way too much, to me it was border woman abuser. Christian does have his reasons as to why he is the way he is and they are all Fifty Shades of fucked up....authors words not mine....lol. So that’s pretty much my hesitation in giving the book ***** stars on Goodreads.

I will have to say the author, E.L. James, tells a story really well. She kept me entertained, the characters were also well written and I will defiantly read the next book.

Last Breath (The Morganville Vampires #11) by Rachel Caine

Well what can I say, I’m really getting bored with this series. In the beginning it was one of my favorite series now I can’t wait till it’s over. This book had an ok plot, but there were things that take place in this book that seemed unnecessary to me. I can’t say what those things were without totally giving away the whole book.

I will continue to read this series to the end only because I feel so invested and I have to know how it ends. However I will not be buying any more books in this series, only Library books for me.
