But one day, when Haley sees Jason destroying her flowers. She decides she has had enough. Little did they know they would become best friends. But will the playboy next door be able to keep his little nerdy neighbor happy, or will he mess everything up.

My thoughts:

I got to say, this is a very funny book. I had by pasted a lot of times in my nook shop because of the cover. I thought it was another Fifty Shades wanna be book. But one day i was on goodreads.com and found it under a different cover, read the description and wanted to read the book. When I found the book on my nook I found it under this cover. Got to say it made me rethink about reading it. I still took the chance. I got to say I’m glade i took that chance. I found it to be a really funny and could not stop reading it. I don’t highly recommend it but it’s a good read. I would say its a fun read, and recommend it as a fun read.

Book 2: Perfection, A Neighbor from Hell

Characters:

Zoe: plus size girl, lost job, grew up in faster homes,

Trevor: Zoe landlord,

Jared: Trevors uncle

Jason: Trevors cousin

Haley: Jasons wife

About the book: 

Zoe lost her job, her car broke down, and must now look for a new place to live. Since she wont be able to pay her rent. After having a bad day, the last thing she needed was to have her neighbor take her food order for himself. That been the last straw, Zoe finally gives Trevor a peace of her mind. Once Trevor new how he really was he tried to be a little more friendly. In his own way. But when Treavor learns that his little neighbor  hasn’t had sex for five ears, he proposes an arrangement with her. A no relationship, just sex deal. Then Trevor realizes that he has always wanted more then a friend with benefits. But will it be to late to make Zoe see that he wants more then just sex.

My thoughts:

This is another funny book. When I got this book, I thought it was a continue from the first book. It turned out that it was not, but it was about Jason’s cousin Trevor. Now both books are are same. They are neighbors and fall in love with ought wanting/expecting to. And to a girl that they didn’t expect to ever be attracted to. I say this is another fun read.

******* THIS BOOK REVIEW HAS SPOILERS. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK! *******

CHARACTERS:

Juliette- main character, can not be touched, put in an asylum to protect others from her

Warner- leader of sector 45, wants to use Juliette as a weapon

James- Adams younger brother

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Juliette is keept away from everyone. Everyone is told not to be around her. Her parents don’t want her. She is a danger to everyone. One touch and she will kill you. At 14 years old, Juliette was taken away and put into an asylum. She spends her time counting seconds, minutes, hours, days. Until one day she is told that she will be getting a roommate, Adam. One thing Juliette didn’t expect was that Adam was a former class mate of hers. Juliette is then taken form the asylum and into the Reestablishment, learns that Adam is a solder sent to the asylum to make sure she didn’t go insane. They want her, but only to hurt people. Something she always refused to do. Once alone, Adam makes it clear that he want to get out. Now Juliette and Adam must find a way to get out alive.

MY THOUGHTS:

OMG! this book was amazing! I wasn’t really sure about it in the beginning, I kinda felt like it was going to drag on and on and on.  That and the way it is written, the story is told from Juliettes point of view.There was a lot of use of strikethroughs. What Mafi did was, have Juliettes thoughts be crossed out. Just like this. Let show you how annoying that is. Dont get me wrong it was different but its also a pain, in the you know what, to keep reading something that is crossed out like this. Another thing that annoyed me was that she had a lot of repetition. Almost as in making it seam that Juliette was starting to loose it wail she was in the asylum. Good part of it was that as the book went on it showed less and less of both of this annoying things. This book also reminded me a lot of the X-men. Because in the end The Omega Point was like a school. who had a bunch of special power people, learning to use the special powers they have. With that said I recommend this book its an amazing book. I gave it a 4 out of 5 starts on Goodreads because of the two annoying things that I found. This book made my Top To Read list.

Destroy Me: book 1.5 will be out on Oct. 2,2012

Unravel Me: book 2 will be out Feb. 5, 2013

Untitled: book 3 will be out  nov 13 2013

Beautiful Disaster By:Jamie McGuire

Beautiful, Book 1

******* THIS BOOK REVIEW HAS SPOILERS. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK! *******

CHARACTERS:

Abby: Main character, 19 years old, aka Pigeon

America: Abbys best friend

Shepley: Americas boyfriend, Abbys friend

Travis: Bad boy, Shepleys cousin, player

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Abby went off to college to get away from her past. America her best friend fallowed her to the college of her choice to be able to keep an eye on her. America got into a relationship with Shepley, one day they went to his cousins under grown fight. Abby meets Travis and everything she worked hart to get away from comes back to her. Now Abby must decide if this is what she wants for the rest of her life.

MY THOUGHTS:

I was so exited to read this book because it was written by Jamie McGuire, same author of Providence. One thing about this book, is that the story line has been told so many times. The shy girl meets the bad boy, bad boy changes to get her to be with him. That to me was a little disappointing. But as you read the book you find out that Abby isn’t this sweet girl, she came out to be at the beginning of the book. As her past with mobsters starts to show, you realist who she really is. I recommend this book, because it is a good book. I cant wait till walking Disaster comes out. Its the same book told in Travis point of view. I believe that that book will be a great book. I have given this book a 4 out of 5 stars in Goodreads.com just because of the story line told so many times.

Walking Disaster comes out April 16,2013

MY THOUGHTS:

I have to say this was the best book of all 3 books. I loved the ending. Once i got past the first 300 pages the book remained really good. Started to read about 930pm and finished it about 330 am… I could not stop reading this book. I gess it was a good thing i couldn’t sleep. Just when you think you know what is going to happen, you change direction and then you do it again. I really liked the last book, its a lot more intense then the first two books.I don’t want to say i recommend this trilogy, but i don’t want to say that i don’t recommend it.

******* THIS BOOK REVIEW HAS SPOILERS. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK! *******

CHARACTERS: 

Genesis: Main character, gets visions, is wanted by the Diabols, wanted by the Guardians to stop bad from happening.

Seth: Genesis guardian, falls for Genesis, wants to keep her away from the guardians

Carter: Genesis ex-boyfriend, was in car accident with Genesis before she started to have her visions

ABOUT THE BOOK:

After Viola killed Stu, all Genesis wants it to avenge his death. When the guardian council finds out, they send Maria. Maria been a guardian worrier is set to train Genesis to a fight agents Viola. As Genesis trains, Viola doesn’t sit and do nothing. She “fixes” things Genesis has changed. Selena dead, the little boy who called her an angel, dead.

But not only has she lost Seth, the council has also called back all the protection she once had. Leaving her with only Carter for help.

WHAT I THOUGHT:

This book is boring, it was a lot like the first book. Nothing good really happens until the end. Most of the book is about her training, learning the weakness of the Diabols. As i sat here trying to find out what to say about the book, I kinda forgot what I read. To me thats not a real good thing in a book. This book is a good read not the best.

He shows himself to her wanting more then just to be a guardian. Seth is not excepting the fact that Genesis has decided to help the guardians to stop diabols from doing harm to others. Because of the decision that Genesis picked she lost a dear friend in the process

WHAT I THOUGHT:

This book reminded me a lot of the Providence and Exixtence trilogy. I enjoyed reading this book. My only problem with this book was that it didn’t really have a lot of OMG moments. Lots of talking and no real action. You get an idea who are the bad guys before you get to the end of the book. I will finish this trilogy till the end. I am a little sad that the one character that i did like was killed off at the end. He gave me a few laughs. Here is to hoping that the next two books are better then the first one. Enjoy!

WHAT I THOUGHT: 

This trilogy is a short series, the books are good but short. This trilogy is definitely a teen trilogy. Now i know that my blogs have misspelling, but the books have them too. All 4 books have misspelling and sometimes the wrong words are used, such as me and my. I liked reading this books but they are short. I recumbent them to teens more then adults. I got the first book on my nook not realizing how short they are so since i spend the money i ended up reading them. It also lacks detail, sometimes when I was reading I would have to re read some paragraphs because i would forget what was going on. Good trilogy but not great.

As the gang goes into hiding Nina tries to keep herself from going insane. But will she just site and wait months in a cave  waiting for her child to be born.

MY THOUGHTS:

I absolutely love this trilogy. It’s one of my all time favorite books I have read. I fell in love with every character that was in this book. I cried when things got difficult for them, and when someone died. I love getting that feeling when you read a book. You know it was a good book. when I finished the book I wanted it to keep going. That is one of the reasons I love to read trilogies. The  books flow so well and its not one of those books that that the author makes all this suspense and then it ends in 1 chapter. It is a great trilogy, I highly recommend this book. I hope to one day see this book on the big screen, but at the same time I don’t want Hollywood to destroy the book like they have for some movies. Again this is a must read if you haven’t started to read it, then go get started. And just to let you know my favorite character was Claire, she kicks ass.

BOOK 2 OF THE PROVIDENCE TRILOGY

                        THIS BOOK REVIEW HAS SPOILERS. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!

 

CHARACTERS:

Nina: Main Character

Jared: Ninas security, Falls in love with Nina, Half angel half human, Ninas protector\

Claire: Jareds sister, Half angel half human Ryans protector

Bex: Jareds younger brother, Half angel half human

Kim: Ninas friend

Beth: Ninas friend

Jack: Ninas father

Gabe: Jareds father, Jacks protecter

Shax: Hell loard

Ryan: Ninas friend, thought to be Ninas husband,

ABOUT THE BOOK:

So the first book it all seams to be over. The Bible of Hell has been returned to Shax, but little did Jared now that was only the beginning. Nina has been having nightmares of her father dieting over and over gain in the hands of demands. Searching for the reason of the dreams, Jared learns that Ninas blood is potent. She isn’t just a human but is part of a prophecy. Because Jared is part angel and she has Nephilim blood, they would have a child of god. But Hell will do anything to stop it, and Heaven will not help until the baby comes.

MY THOUGHTS:

Amazing absolutely Amazing. As the story in tenses you learn more and more about each character and other Characters that have been I’m the story start to become a part of the journey to save Nina and the child she is caring. I got so much more into this book, torts the end I cried. Kim and Ryan become part of the fight to retrieve the book that was given back to Hell. Reading this book you hurt watching as one character fights to stay alive so that the one they are connected to survive as well. You cry knowing that if one character dies so does another one. It really is an amazing trilogy to get into. It all flows together just like the first book. I will be so sad when I finish the last book. This book is definitely on my top must reads.

Providence By: Jamie McGuire

BOOK 1 OF THE PROVIDENCE TRILOGY

                        THIS BOOK REVIEW HAS SPOILERS. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!

CHARACTERS:

Nina: Main Character

Jared: Ninas security, Falls in love with Nina, Half angel half human, Ninas protector\

Claire: Jareds sister, Half angel half human Ryans protector

Bex: Jareds younger brother, Half angel half human

Kim: Ninas friend

Beth: Ninas friend

Jack: Ninas father

Gabe: Jareds father, Jacks protecter

Shax: Hell loard

Ryan: Ninas friend, thought to be Ninas husband,

ABOUT THE BOOK:

When Ninas father dies from a “car accident” Jered no longer hides in the shadows. He starts to show himself to Nina, after Jack had forbidden it for years. Nina can’t stop to think about this man that comes out of nowhere every time she is in trouble. One thing she didn’t realize was that her father was not the man she new. He was into dark things, steeling from Hell. His actions have put Nina into danger. When Jared decided to show himself to Nina, he didn’t realize that he was singning her death certificate.

MY THOUGHTS:

This book is just plain amazing!!!! It’s soooo crazy. Everything flowed really well. Because Nina is human and Jared is part angel and her protector*, the relationship they form brings curiosity to both Heaven and Hell. So much happens in this book that its so hard to put it into this review. Jack, steals the Hells Bible, and Hell wants it back. The only thing is Nina and Jared don’t know the location and are trying to find out as much as they can. All i can say is this is a MUST READ!!!! You will fall in love with the characters. Its a great written book. Definitely read it. I would love to see this book in the big screen someday.

* because Jared is Ninas Protector, if anything happens to Nina (death) Jared would die as well. They are connected to the point that Jared can feel Ninas pain and hurt.
