Ceaseless By: Abbi Glines

BOOK 3 OF THE EXISTENCE TRILOGY

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

 

Characters:

Pagan: Main Character

Dank:  Death , took the life of a rocker to be around Pagan

Miranda: Best Girl Friend

Nathan/Wyatt: Pagans friend and Miranda boy friend, died in second book, soul cam back

Leif: voodoo prince, still wants Pagan

Gee: Soul Transporter

Jay: Pagans ex boyfriend, soul mate to Pagan

About the book:

“When a soul is created, so is its mate. In every lifetime those souls find each other. They complete the other’s destiny.”

The Deity have taken Pagans memories away, every last one. Know Dank must win her back before Jay can. But with Leif wanting to get even, it becomes hard. Now Dank must take a risk and tell Pagan what he really is, Instead of helping it pushes Pagan away. In need of a friend  Pagan turns to Jay. Will Pagan remember all the lost memories? Will she pick to stay with Jay?

My thought: 

I got to say, I was very disappointed with this book. I loved the first two books a lot. This one not so much. Felt really short, and not a lot of OMG moments. One thing I didn’t expect was to have Leif come back, but he didn’t put up much of a fight for Pagan. Pagans character didn’t once seam interested in Jays character. It gave the feeling of no mater what happened in the book she was always going to end up with Dank. No excitement nothing. I gave it a 3 out of 5 stars, and i think i was been generous. Enjoy!

Young Love Murder By: April Brookshire

 

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

” Most of the time, other bad guys hire me to take out a target. Competition in the criminal world can be ruthless. On the other hand, sometimes it’s hard for ‘by the book’ government agencies to take down men like this because they have to follow the pesky laws the criminal element choose to ignore. can’t have the FBI or Interpol offing any person they suspect of committing murder and mayhem.”

Characters:

Annabelle: Assassen, Sent to kill Xavier, Annie

Jackson: Annies brother.

Uncle Simon: Takes the hit “orders”

Brent: Assassen, Friend of jackson and Annie

Porky: Nerd, cleans up after the assassins

Gabriel Sanchez: 17 years old Xavier’s son

Max Garcia: 17 years ild, Gabriels cousin

She must do what she must do, She killed Xavier in front of Gabriel. Now Gabriel is on the hunt to find Annabelle and kill her. But will the love they have over come this anger inside of Gabriel, or will be really kill Annabelle?

My thoughts:

I liked reading this book, it had a lot of unexpected parts. One thing i did not like was that we had a lot of repetition and repetition and more repetition.  That made me a little annoyed because it almost just felt like she was trying to make the story longer. I also found myself skimming a lot when I was reading this book.  I have given this book a 3 out of 5 stars on good reads. I do know that a second book is coming out. At the end of this book they had Jackson talking saying he would not fall in love ever. So i take it the next book is about Jacksons love story. One thing that was also wrong is that the author has that the second book will be out winter 2011/2012, in the book, and goodreads.com right know has it set out for 2013. And no its not out yet. I think I will read the second book just because i like Jackson’s character. Enjoy!

Vladek: killed Rasfiq sister and mother,

Dr. Sloan: Levvies Dr.

Agent Reed: Investigates Levvies story

David: Levvies lawyer

Felipe: slave owner, wants Rsfiq, knows a secret,

About the Book:

“The nature of human beings revolved around one empirical truth: we want what we cannot have. For Eve, it was the fruit of the Forbidden Tree. For Caleb, it was Livvie”

As the action came closer and closer Caleb still had a lot of work to do. Kitten was not fully broken, and now she told him, she loved him. Now the relationship he and Livvie had was no longer a secret. With Filipe having cameras all over the house, he had to brake her. Rsfiq would be here any day,and he was already questioning Caleb. But why hasn’t Filipe told Rsfiq about him and Livvie? Something was wrong. After Caleb sees Livvie “perform” at a party Filipe has, he realizes he has to keep Livvie. He is running out of time, trying to find a way to make Rsfiq understand, he runs into Felipe. Felipe makes a proposition. Felipe wants Rsfiq out of his business. In exchange for the truth about Rsfiq and Vladek. Caleb Learns that everything he has worked so hard for was a lie.

My thoughts:

I loved this book! Its so much better then the first book. I have given it a 4 out of 5 star rate on good reads. Got to thank my fiancé for letting me barrow his Kindle to read it since it was not available on the Nook. The reason i gave it a 4 star instead of a 5 is because it did feel like it was taking forever to read. A good thing about this book is that it has a lot of twist. When you think you know how the book will end it turns completely around.  I must say is a really good read and i do recommend it. Enjoy!

Captive in the Dark By: C.J. Roberts

The Dark Duet, book #1

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

WARNING :   “THIS EXCERPT IS MEANT TO BE READ ONLY BY PERSONS 18 AND OVER. IT CONTAINS MATERIAL SOME MAY FIND OBJECTIONABLE AND/OR OFFENSIVE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO: KIDNAPPING, VIOLENCE, STRONG LANGUAGE AND FORCED SEXUAL SITUATIONS. USE YOUR BEST JUDGMENT BEFORE PROCEEDING.”

Characters:

Caleb: Kidnaps woman to make into sex slaves, works for Rasfiq

Livvie: Olivia, Kitten, Pet, Kidnaped to become a sex slave

Rsfiq: saves Caleb, wants Vladek dead

Vladek: killed Rasfiq sister and mother,

About the book:

Caleb was taken as a boy to become a slave, left for dead, Rsfiq came and saved him. Gave him a home, food, and woman, now Caleb is set to help Rsfiq revenge the death of his mother and sister. Caleb must kidnap a woman, not just any woman, but one that will stand out from the sale. Once so irresistible that Vladek would want and give anything to have. Following Livvie  day after day, he finally has her kidnaped. But something is different about this girl, he cant seem to stop thinking about her. Levvie also wants Caleb, to hold her to keep her safe. Both falling in love with one another. Now with Rsfiq on his way to see the girl, Caleb must fighter out how to handle the situation that has gotten out of control. Will he give up the girl he has fallen for? Will he give up everything he has worked years to accomplish? Will be betray Rasfiq, the man that helped him?

My thoughts:

I got to admit I like the book. I believe it was a little boring just bc most of the book is about Caleb trying to brake Lavvie. But when it got into Levvie escaping it tarted to get good and thats when I couldn’t stop reading it.  It was also a really well written book. This is definitely a book you want to think about reading because its so explicit. I think the worst part was when Caleb was thinking about his past. Reading about a child and sold for sex isn’t really something someone would want to be reading. But it makes you see why he is so revengeful.  They show a bit of the stockholms syndrome in this book as well, with Caleb and Livvie. I don’t really now what rating to give this book, I say it a neutral rating. I will be reading the second book, as soon as its available on the nook. It is available on kindle, book 2 is called Seduced in the Dark. As far as i know, some issues are going on with the B & N for the nook. I hoped this review helped. Enjoy!

MY THOUGHTS

Ok so it took me a few days to find a book to read. This book was recommended by Goodreads.com, based on other books I have read. It has a 4 star rating, both on Goodreads and the Nook shop, so i gave it a try. I have been reading this book for the past 3 days, and still havent read 100 pages. I don’t know why but i cant seem to get into this book. I feel like im back in high school reading this book. It must be the whole “I have to change so people like me” thing. I know its just a book but still. I say this is a book to pass. I will read other books and come back to this one and see if i can finish it. But as of right now I will stop reading it.
