REVIEW: New Moon by Stephenie Meyer

Image
Summary: The "star-crossed" lovers theme continues as Bella and Edward find themselves facing new obstacles, including a devastating separation, the mysterious appearance of dangerous wolves roaming the forest in Forks, a terrifying threat of revenge from a female vampire and a deliciously sinister encounter with Italy's reigning royal family of vampires, the Volturi. Passionate, riveting, and full of surprising twists and turns, this vampire love saga is well on its way to literary immortality.

Thoughts:This is my least favorite book in the series. I appreciate the character development of Jacob and the progression of the relationship between Jacob and Bella. What I didn’t appreciate was the level of depression in to which Bella fell and the implication that she might kill herself rather than live without Edwa…

REVIEW: Illicit by June Gray

Image
Summary:I never meant to be the other woman…

Jake and I felt a connection the moment he walked into my life, an attraction both of us tried so hard to deny. Still, I found myself longing for the very thing I couldn’t have.

I didn’t set out to fall in love with Jake. Not when he clearly wasn’t mine.

He was my mother’s.

Thoughts:So this one is definitely on the taboo side, and I normally keep my guilty pleasures to myself. However, I felt this one was worth sharing. Jakes does cheat on Joss’s mom with Joss, which I didn’t like from a personal stand point, but frankly it was realistic. It’s a painfully awkward situation with no real winning solution. I get Jake with Joss’s mom, but as expected, I get him with Joss so much more. I rooted for them to find a way and was sad when things played out the way they did, though satisfied wit…

David’s the first man to ever compete with Edge for Gareth’s passion. But Edge has secrets of his own, and David’s ex-lover will never be happy without David under his fist. With everything stacked against him, ca…

Fire Balls (Balls to the Wall Series, Bk #2) By Tara Lain
Blurb:
Renowned artist Rodney Mansfield stands five foot six, has pink hair, six earrings, a black belt in karate—and a desperate yearning for firefighter Hunter Fallon. But Rod, the Runtback of Notre Dame, knows he’ll never land the beautiful “straight gay” guy, so Rod musters his altruism and helps his more masculine friend Jerry attract Hunter. As if a broken heart wasn’t enough, Rod saves Hunter from a firehouse homophobe—humiliating Hunter in front of his dad!
Hunter lives a dream life—his father’s dream. While he’d like to teach literature in college, read poetry in the sun, and find a strong guy to top him, he fights fires for his dad. Hunter hates flamboyant guys like Rodney. So why can’t he resist him? Maybe it’s time to admit this is one flame he has no desire to put out.
