Review: Still Waters

Still Waters Still Waters by Rebecca Addison
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Cover/Title: Neither the cover or title drew me in. I think someone told me it was good so I grabbed a copy.

Characters: Hartley was sweet. Crew was an emotional wreck. Her dad & David, well they weren't very nice people to say the least.

Plot: The plot centers around Hartley who can't live with her father & boyfriend's decision. She meets Crew who can't live with the wreck his father made of his life.

Overall: It is a sweet romance between two people dealing with chaos caused by their fathers. This is a great read for those days that you want to read a sweet but emotional romance.

Review: Rogue Alpha

Rogue Alpha Rogue Alpha by Kimber White
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Cover/Title: The cover lured me in with those awesome wolf eyes.

Characters: Laura is sweet but tough when she needs to be. The way a good heroine should be. Mal is the rugged male alpha wolf.. enough said there.

Plot: Mal is trying to save his friends and her by stopping a rogue wolf. Laura is caught between them as things get out of control during her internship.

Overall: I enjoyed the story. It was definitely a nice intro to the series. I hope some of the later are longer. This one seemed kind of short. I do like that each book is able to stand on its own but they are still linked.

Review: Blame it on Texas

Blame it on Texas Blame it on Texas by Tori Scott
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Cover/Title: It was the series name that caught me. I am a fan of hunky cowboys (what girl isn't?)

Characters: Logan is stubborn to say the least. However, his ex-wife made me want to reach thru the book and slap her. LOL. Megan was too sweet. I loved the townspeople of Morris Springs, though. That is the way a town should be.

Plot: Typical romance. Two stubborn people too busy stumbling over themselves, other people and their problems to admit how they feel about each other.

Overall: If you are looking for something new or different, this ain't it. This is your typical romance but it is a good book to cuddle up with on a cold day. There are days that you need a sweet, predictable romance. This is perfect for those days.

Review: Watching You

Watching You Watching You by J.A. Schneider
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Cover/Title: The cover really fits the story. Almost give you that creepy feeling you have when walking down a deserted road in the middle of the night.

Characters: The characters are ok. The cops seem dedicated but it really on focuses on two of them so you don't really get to know much about the others.

Plot: There is a serial killer which the cops are desperate to find, especially after he targets one of their own. I love that it switches between her POV and the killers' POV.

Overall: I was sucked into this book immediately. I didn't want to put it down (I did eventually because we all need sleep, right). I honestly had trouble figuring it out. I actually thought about the person it turned out to be but I nixed the idea. I figured it couldn't be. Overall, it was a great read and not too easy to solve.

Review: To Hell and Back

To Hell and Back To Hell and Back by Demelza Carlton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Cover/Title: The cover and title both draw me in. Then again, this is one of my favorite series. I would have read it if it the cover was plain because I knew what I was in for.

Characters: I love Luce and Mel together. They would do anything for each other.

Plot: Persi is missing. Am I surprised? No, that half angel is always up to something. Why is she waltzing across the world leading them on a merry chase? No idea but the things they find out along the way are amusing.

Overall: I love this series. It totally crushes what you typically think about angels and demons. In this series, the line is a bit blurry. I will be continuing to read on to find out more of their adventures.

Review: The Ugly Stepsister Strikes Back

The Ugly Stepsister Strikes Back The Ugly Stepsister Strikes Back by Sariah Wilson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Cover/Title: The title drew me in.

Characters: Mattie started out whiny & really self-absorbed. However, over the course of the book, she grew and changed. I did start to like her by the end. Ella was a likable character but she had a lot to learn about family relationships over the course of the book.

Plot: This wasn't what I expected. There was a severe lack of communication in their family. Elle thought she had to repay her stepdad for allowing her to live there. She couldn't understand that he loved her like his own daughter. Mattie thought Elle was too perfect and basically wanted to be her.

Overall: It was an interesting book. I love that two sisters learn that blood does not make a family. They also learn to communicate with each other and love themselves for who they are. They both learn confidence by the end of the book. Overall, it is an ok book.
