MsMichaels' Take...

Reading is my passion. I love nothing more than to get lost in a story. Whether that be a fantasy story or one true to life. I love being able to share my experience through reading it.

I had high hopes for this one, but sadly it just didn't live up to my expectations.
IMO, this one is just an "alright" addition to this series. There are things that you need to know, that are revealed here for future books though. So I wouldn't recommend skipping this one.

I just wish I could have become more invested in the MC's. For me, there just wasn't much chemistry between them, and the dragging out of why the heroine didn't want to be with her destined mate, bored me.

When I met Dominic in book 3, I got the impression his character would have much more fire. And whatever plot would be surrounding him and his mate, would be off the chain.
Again, sadly, it just wasn't.

That being said, I still would recommend this series. It's entertaining, interesting, funny, romantic, and sexy... Most of the time.

Happy Reading :)
 
 
 

 

Torkel's Chosen - Michelle Howard

This one was a really surprisingly awesome read. I mean I had hoped it would be good, but I wasn't expecting certain aspects of this story to emotionally blow me away, but it did.

This is the first book to this series. And while it does open up doors for other characters to have their stories told, I'm still on the fence about diving into the other books. Simply because I felt this one was so good, I don't see how others could be better. Still deciding if I'll proceed further or not, but I HIGHLY recommend that if you're curious about any book in this series, please start here first.

Happy Reading :)

Undone (The Amoveo Legend) by Humphreys, Sara(May 7, 2013) Mass Market Paperback - Sara Humphreys

So this one was all kinds of AWESOME!!! Back in the game with this one.
Yeah I'm definitely loving me some Pete.
I really enjoyed many of the reveals concerning him and where he comes from. I hope to see more & get more answers where he and his "Father" are concerned. I felt that he and Marianna were a perfect match for one another.

The other reveals concerning the Purists & Loyalists, are getting more and more intense by the second. I loved how certain things are being woven and revealed

Basically this series has me like...

So yes, I would definitely recommend this series.
Please Read In Order

Happy reading :)

 

The Final Temptation - K.C. Lynn

This one is a lot lighter than the other 3 books. Which I was expecting that, just given what we've come to know about Kayla & Cooper through out the series. I didn't really need to see their own personal story, because I felt like we got plenty from them through secondary plots within the other 3 books. But still, this one was a nice, lighter read. Fun, sexy, romantic and sweet.

I would recommend this entire series. Please read in order.

Happy Reading :)

Resisting Temptation - K.C. Lynn

5++++*****
WOW! This series has blown me away!

This was an awesomely heartbreaking read. I love this story. I've loved this entire series. I am so glad I came upon this series. Cade's story, was so beautifully written. I didn't think this series could get any more raw, but Cade's story certainly proved me wrong.

I HIGHLY recommend this read, this entire series.

Please read in order.

Happy Reading :)

Dragon Blue: A Lie That's True (The Dragonlords of Xandakar Book 1) - Macy Babineaux

This one wasn't all that great to be honest. The writing style seemed very choppy in some places and half thought out scenarios/plot lines, abound here...  But, the epilogue revealed a lot, and the teaser chapter (Chapter 1) for book 2,  was a vast improvement on the writing and intrigue. It  showed, at least for me, that this series may just turn out to be pretty good. So I will be back for book 2 definitely.

 

I would recommend this read just so you can get a lay of the land and an introduction to this world and the secondary plots that unfold for future books. But I wouldn't go into this one expecting to be blown away by the love story or the main characters for this book.

 

Happy Reading :)

Sweet Temptation (Men Of Honor) (Volume 2) - K. C. Lynn

Very Good follow up to book one. Thus far, I've loved both books immensely.

I'd highly recommend this series.

Happy Reading :)

Fighting Temptation - K.C. Lynn

OMGOSH! This was good :D

Untamed - Sara  Humphreys

Yes this was definitely a "Transition Story" within the series. I didn't care too much for the pairing with Layla and William. They had very few intense or even sweet moments. It just was not enough for me.

This book, as far as the series goes, was a decent addition to it. And towards the end we get the beginnings of what will be the war between the Amoveo and the Purists that reside within their race. Which is good. The ball is finally beginning to roll. Just that the MC's and their obstacles left much to be desired. I like them both individually, just not as a couple. I also felt that Layla was taking too long to get with the program and accept her fate. Which was odd to me considering she's always known what she is. So as far as adjusting to many things, I felt like it should not have taken her as long to do so. Why she kept pulling away to a certain extent, I understood her fear and why, but overall it just didn't warrant all that she did and tried, just to avoid things.

In comparison to the first two novels where both heroines are Hybrids & had no clue what they were and with them having to find that out on top of dealing with a Life Mate, they accepted their fates and who they were with much more ease and grace. Not to mention how quickly they seemed to come around to it. So it made no sense to me for Layla, who has been aware of what she is, and essentially where she came from for the whole of her life; to have such a hard time accepting her fate and place, when she begins to learn the full scope of things. Didn't mesh.
This is why this one was only a 3* read for me.

Undenied (The Amoveo Legend #2.5) - Sara  Humphreys

Very Quick. Hot Read. I'm so glad that Boris found his Life Mate though. These two make me very curious and I want to see more of them in the future. Especially since his mate is not a Hybrid, but she's 100% human.

The Highlander's Temptation (Stolen Bride, #0.5) by Eliza Knight

Ice Planet Barbarians: The Complete Series: A SciFi Alien Serial Romance - Ruby Dixon

I did like this one. A lot. I'm not sure if I will read this one in order though. Some of the descripts for certain books here, just aren't grabbing me as strongly as others. But I have no doubt I will read this entire series eventually. Way too intriguing and entertaining for me not to.

Happy Reading :)

The Power of a Praying® Mom: Powerful Prayers for You and Your Children

The Power of a Praying® Mom: Powerful Prayers for You and Your Children - Stormie Omartian

My 9 year old and I read and pray through this together. It's beyond a lovely & awesome read.
I would definitely recommend this for Mothers with children of any age.

Entreat Me - Grace Draven

WOW!!!!

I truly, truly enjoyed this read. Thank you so much Beanbag, for spoiling me with this book.

I don't want to elaborate on anything for fear of ruining something for others who have yet to try this one. I'll just say it was nothing that I had expected it to be. It was somehow more. Just awesome. And it was quite funny at times too. Mysterious, frightening, beautiful, lyrical, sexy and romantic.

A very intense passionate read. On different levels. I would definitely recommend this one. The fact that this one is an historical find, and I'm not a huge fan of those yet I LOVED this one, it says a lot. Says a lot about the writing, the characters, and all the wonder that surrounded them.
GREAT Read :D

Happy Reading :)
