Gabriel's Rapture

Gabriel's Rapture - Sylvain Reynard "I told you I'd go to hell to rescue you, and that's exactly what I did."


I seriously don't even know how to put into words how utterly amazing this book truly was. God it was so beautiful. This is one of the best love stories that I've ever read, aside from Gone with the Wind. To even be put in the same category as a classic means ALOT. This book was more than I ever expected it to be.

Gabriel and Julianne's love story is just beautiful. Even though they both have terrible pasts', they just love each other unconditionally and aren't allowing themselves to be "Broken". This book is mature, it doesn't have all the petty fights and silly arguments. It's about two adults who fall madly in love, who would sacrifice everything to be together.


I literally cried when this book ended because it was the perfect HEA. I'm so happy to see them together that I just ugh!


EVERYONE READ THIS AND FALL IN LOVE!

Gabriel's Inferno

Gabriel's Inferno - Sylvain Reynard 5 Breathtaking, Beautiful, Perfect stars!!!


This was by far one of the best books that I have read in my lifetime. So full of romance, and passion.
I really did blush QUITE a few times which surprised me because I've read FAR dirtier books. This book isn't dirty at all.. its intimate and I felt like I was intruding on their private moment.

At first, I wasn't sure if I was going to like this book. But after the first few chapters I was hooked. Its deep and intelligent as well, I loved the references to Dante. (I'm a lover of the classics as well as my romances)

I would recommend this book to ALL my friends but be prepared to fall head over heels DEEPLY in love with Gabriel. <3

Forever Too Far (Too Far, #3)

Forever Too Far (Too Far, #3) - Abbi Glines

Peeeeerfect ending!!
Rush is just perfect, seriously. He is definetley my favorite book boyfriend and I am NOT willing to share.. hehe

I'm not going to ruin the story for everyone but just know that this and the previous two books are 5 Star, blow you out the water, panty dropping.. HOT! Just enough romance and drama to keep you on your toes.



A little of this..


annnnd a little of this..


a little of this...

5 freakin stars abbi!!!!

Only For You (Forever and Always)

Only For You: 1 (Forever and Always) - E. L. Todd DNF at 42%.

stupid
Like literally in the top 10 of most horribly written books I have ever read!


We had sex, now were in love and I'm going to change my relationship status on facebook to "in a relationship".. wait what?
I couldn't read any farther and I pushed to get as far as I did!.
Not even one star worthy, sorry!



TERRIBLE

Fallen Too Far (Too Far, #1)

Fallen Too Far (Too Far, #1) - Abbi Glines Oh my god... Really? My heart is broken into a million pieces right now.


That's me right now.

I fell in love with Rush & Blaire from the first page and I am hooked.
I devoured this book in 2 hours tops. I couldn't put it down at all. Not even to run to the bathroom.. I just kept reading and reading.

I love that this story line is original.. like really I've never read a book with so much messed up shit but it's addicting. You can't stop reading.

Here's a summary of how this book went:

Blaire meets Rush:


Blaire & Rush together:

ME BY THE END OF THE BOOK:



Off I go to read the second book which hopefully doesn't leave me bawling.

Never Too Far

Never Too Far - Abbi Glines I'm seriously so in love with these characters and this series I have no freakin words!!!! My number 1 of 2014 FORRER SUUUUREEE<3

Beautiful Broken Rules

Beautiful Broken Rules - Kimberly Lauren THANK GOD IT IS OVER. Worst book I have ever read in my life. Horrible. Terrible. UGH!!
I wanted to bang my head on the wall repeatedly.



THAT IS ALL.

Price of a Kiss

Price of a Kiss - Linda Kage Horrible. Absolutely, positively HORRIBLE. I'm sorry but I felt like I was reading a YA book. God. I literally can't believe I even finished that! I am a grown ass woman and that book made me feel like a child! Come on! Sorry guys that book doesn't even deserve 1 star.
What a sweet & romantic book.. a refreshing change up from the usual bad boys that take over my kindle!

Cameron Hamilton is to die for. Ugh literally he's perfect! He's sweet, caring, gentle, romantic, smart, etc. etc... He gets my book boyfriend of the year award! I loved that HE took care of Avery. He always put her feelings first and was a genuine nice guy. He waited for her when he knew she wasn't ready for lots of things.. he didn't go and try to find someone else to bide his time (steph).. ICK.

Avery is sweet and innocent but also damaged.. he hearts damaged and she's afraid to let anyone in. Then she meets Cam who is taken with her from the start. From the very first chapter he spends all his time trying to get to know her and be around her.



I loved this book and will definitely be finishing this series out! :)

Wanted

Wanted - J. Kenner

Basically me the entire book.
I just didn't care for this like I thought I would. Her writing was average and nothing stood out for me. I found myself skipping pages and skimming until there was sex, which was every other page and way to much. I'll give it 2.5 for the steamy scenes but they were repetitive and she was to responsive .. she "gasped" every time he spoke to her, yet had known him since she was 16. Bleh. Definitely hoping my next read is better!

Rule (Marked Men, #1)

Rule (Marked Men, #1) - Jay Crownover This book is definitely my favorite read of 2014!

I don't know about you girls but I want me an Archer boy! Rule & Rome both pleaseeee. Hehe kidding (sorta)

But really, I love love loved this book! Shaw & Rule are the cutest thing. I love that even though he's blind to the fact that she's in love with him at first, that lightbulb goes off and HE chases her. It's not some book about another girl getting hurt over some prick. Yes, he has issues to work on but he was upfront with her and together they worked through their problems.

I was sad when speaking of Remy, happy when rule and shaw were together, and reading so fast I thought I'd have a headache bc I. Could. Not. Put. It. Down.

This is a story of two people learning to love each other, learning to break down walls and find their place in the world together. It was perfect. Can't wait to read about Jet!

"I’ll tell you what real love is. It is blind devotion, unquestioning self-humiliation, utter submission, trust and belief against yourself and against the whole world, giving up your whole heart and soul to the smiter."

 

Ugh I adored this book! I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 just because of the fact that Trace was an asshole to her and I ALMOST stopped reading because of certain things that he did. But once you keep reading it pieces all together and you almost forgive him completely. It's another beautiful story about a damaged man that needs someone to save him from his past, and himself.

 

I loved the fact that the stuff about his parents and Embers  mom were also involved, that it just wasn't a romance. It was mystery and I couldn't put it down because I wanted to know what happened!!

 

I also just saw on Amazon that there is another book coming out in his best friend, Lucien's POV! And whenever they introduced him into the story I automatically LOVED his character so I am super excited to read about him falling in love!

I actually bought this on a whim. (Judging a book by its cover.. oops). I was actually looking for another series on amazon when I ran across this and it looked good so I bought it and I'm soooo glad that I did! It was AWESOME! I absolutely love the main characters together, their chemistry is perfect! It reminds me ALOT of 50 shades but at the same time it has its own beauty about it. Their relationship is relatable and of course we all wish we could find a man like Daniel!

 

 

It has a cliffhanger and I hate them BUT at least the second book is already out.. I'll be starting it tonight!   I look forward to reading more from Sigal in the future!

Inner Core

Inner Core - Sigal Ehrlich I am seriously SO freakin sad to leave these characters :(
This book was 10x better than the first in my opinion!
I just read it, while at work, in 2 hours. It was such a happy ending!


Definitely recommend it!
