Review - Filthy Rich

Filthy RichFilthy Rich by Virna DePaul

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Final Score - 4 Why Did I Stars

***received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review***


I hate to admit this, but this book took WAY LONGER for me to get into and for me, that just DOESN'T HAPPEN! And while I'd like to blame it on my illness (currently battling a serious cold), it really had EVERYTHING to do with development of the plot line and story's characters - I just couldn't connect AT ALL with anything about this story. Most confusing of all - The Title. What did the title have anything to do with the book? Ugh!!!

I eventually did manage to get thru it, but for it to then end so abruptly and without a valid ending? I feel like this had the potential to be a great book, but it was given up on. I don't like saying that, but that's how the ending felt. Cut way too short without any resolvement.

I don't know at this point if I will re-read this book at a later point to come up with another opinion (as I said, I'm sick and not running on full cylinders so to speak), but I will. Hopefully, this was just a fluke, but at this point, I'm seriously doubting it (I mean, you can't change a bad ending). At least it was a free book given to me and I didn't waste my money on buying it.


That really would have pissed me off.

Review - Sustained

Sustained (The Legal Briefs, #2)Sustained by Emma Chase

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Final Score- 5 I CRIED MY EYES OUT Stars!!!

Between the kids just being kids, Chelsea trying to keep it all together and not fall apart, or even Jake being your typical dumb male... I didn't know who broke my heart the most. Even when I was laughing, I was crying!

Jake will break your heart, and he did quite frequently with his indivisiveness and confusion about how he thought his life/career should be like. The kids will not only steal it but heal it as well.

There just wasn't one character I couldn't not fall in love with, from sour-faced Riley to adorable baby Ronan - each one burrowed into my heart and will forever remain. I don't think I've ever finished an Emma Chase novel as quickly as I did this one and I'm kinda sad that it's over now as I should have paced myself more slowly.

I can't wait for the last book in the series... from the excerpt at the end, it'll be another book I won't be able to put down once I get my hands on it.

Reveiw - Little Black Book

Little Black Book (Little Black Book, #1)Little Black Book by Tabatha Vargo

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Final score - 3.5 Stars

While I did enjoy this book and the plot twist was something I did NOT see coming, I was disappointed in how...

All was forgiven and basically forgotten &
They ended up together?!

I'm sorry, but that just doesn't ring true. No matter the love that was there, what was done can never be undone. Being at the scene of the crime makes you just as guilty as the perpetrator. I could not forgive him. That just screams BS to me.

Review - Once Kissed

Once Kissed (O'Brien Family, #1)Once Kissed by Cecy Robson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Final Score - 5 yes, Yes, YES Stars!!!


I have to admit, at first when I started reading this... I was a bit confused. In reading this story, I could have sworn I had these characters before. And sure enough, it finally clicked!

THESE ARE KILLIAN'S SIBLINGS from the series before! DUH!!!

LOL I love it that they are getting their own spin off! I love the O'Briens was once again transported back to their mixed neighborhood - reminded me of home in a way.

Curran and Tess ... gosh. The crap her father put her thru! I'm so happy that at least he was made to pay for being a jerk and all around mess of a parent. I don't even want his actions explained, THERE IS NO EXCUSE! To me, he ranks up there with Teo, Letty, & Sofie's pop. Grrrr...

Great read - the only reason why it too me so long honestly to read it is due to sleep. Had to get some quality time in because between work and my puppy - my hours were pretty much spent & didn't have a lot to spare. But once I got in it, I WAS ALL IN!

Can't wait for the next one in the series... who will it be next? Declan or Wren? I'm leaning more towards Declan and Melissa *wink*

Review - Bad Romance

Bad RomanceBad Romance by Jen McLaughlin

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Final Score - 5 I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU LEFT IT THERE! Stars


WHY???? After everything they had been thru, there's not epilogue? NO HEA ending that was succulent, I wanted to gobble, Gobble, GOBBLE it up until I threw it back up again? :(

They book had me, from sarcastic beginning to it's witty ending - I still feel that it warranted and HEA epilogue, but who knows... I maybe the minority on that.

Jackson was dirty, raunchy, SEX incarnate! I was fantasizing right along with Lilly!!! *blushes*

I want more, I just can't let either of them go. I still have questions! The mother - what's her story? It never was explained to my satisfaction. The stepfather - what happened to his company?

Please sir, can I have some more?! *bats eye lashes at you*
