Sometimes I’m in the mood to rant and go on obsessively about a book, and then sometimes a few words will do, as in a sentence LOL. But I thought I’d share these beyond simple reviews with you guys since I read them all in the last week, and to be honest, I’m in the one sentence review mood right now. I also want to let you know that there isn’t really a theme in their genres. Just a fair warning 🙂
Perfect Opposite by Zoya Tessi
Their wishes were simple and modest. Fate had other things in store though, and she can be a real bitch sometimes.
– All he wanted was to get the job done and somehow to endure those long months playing nanny to a spoiled little rich girl. Without strangling her with his bare hands in the process. Well, it is going to be much easier said than done.
– All she wanted was to escape the past and live like any other nineteen-year-old girl. Her plan definitely didn’t include the arrogant, tattooed savage, with his awful mohawk hair and lack of social graces, whose only mission was to stick real close and mess up her life.
But, people aren’t always what they seem to be, are they?
REVIEW= This was super cute and had me guessing until about three quarters in. The guy is super alpha, so if that’s not your thing, then odds are you won’t care for this much. But I thought it was a well written story with great characters and a fun plot.
Damian’s Oracle by Lizzy Ford
Inspired by Slavic mythology, Damien’s Oracle is the entree into the ongoing battle between good and evil over the fate of humanity. The White God, Damian, and his Guardians protect the world from the Black God and his monsters while rescuing Naturals – humans with extraordinary paranormal gifts – from the Black God, who would kill or convert them.
Caught in the middle is cool-headed Sofia, a Natural whose gift will tip the scales in the war. Sofia begins her transformation from human into oracle, the first in thousands of years. Damian rescues her from the Black God in time to complete a ceremony that will bind her to him for eternity. Sofia struggles with her new world and her role as an oracle and Damian’s mate while haunted by a mysterious man from Damian’s past who’s supposed to be dead. Unbeknownst to her, her link to the dead man may be all that saves Damian, his Guardians, and the fate of humanity.
While he wants nothing more than for the petite beauty to take her place at his side like the oracles of legend did his White God forefathers, Damian can’t quite rationalize having to win her over instead of command her. Further complicating his life is the sobering realization that there are spies in his organization who are helping the Black God take out his Guardians. Damian must help Sofia reach her potential fast, especially when a threat from his past returns.
REVIEW= I got this book for free on Amazon and I thought the story was good, if not a little monotonous in some places. I have to say the guys in this were really awesome and even the secondary characters had me hooked. Overall a fun plot with each book in the series centered on a new character from the first installment. The only thing I couldn’t stand was the crude remarks and sometimes repetitive pattern of the dialogue. Definitely a NEW ADULT not a YA.
Ink My Heart ( Luminescent Juliet #2 ) by Jean Haus
Even if he weren’t the lead singer of the popular college band, Luminescent Juliet, Justin Noel would have his pick of women. And he does pick. Nightly. Tattooed, blonde, and green eyed, he flashes his dimples and females swoon.
Except for one.
Tattoo artist, Allie Landon, rarely dates, and especially not men like Justin. Though he’s hot enough to melt off permanent ink, she’s done with the bad boy type. But when the ex who broke her heart wants to reunite, desperation has Allie introducing her latest client as her boyfriend. Justin’s more than happy to play the part. He’s completely intrigued by the sexy artist and college student.
However, Allie’s life isn’t what it seems. There’s little room in it or her shattered and confused heart for Justin. But as Justin remains persistent, ignoring the growing attraction—both physical and emotionally—between them becomes more difficult than tattoo removal.
REVIEW= I read the first book in this series and fell in love with the characters. This read was pretty good, but I would say the first book takes the cake for me. I only say that because this installment dealt with more serious situations and I’m not a fan of dirty content or life and death situations. I also recommend this to 17+ because of said content. I did like the growth of the main character ( Justin ) and how we got to see him mature and become an even better version of himself. The plot was good and there were definitely life lessons in this one.
Well that’s my wrap up. Hope you guys enjoyed it and don’t forget to click the follow button!
