Done packing XD

My room looks like a hurricane has hit it after I finished packing, it's totally messy and crazily thrown apart.

FIY the bag I'm taking with me is the big brown one not the rest, and I'm saying this cause everytime I show people this picture the first thing they ask us how many bags I'm taking with me? XD 

After the clean up my room looks Spartan, especially after the bag got out of the way XD 

Tonight my flight is to London I hope this time I can go places I want to go to like bookstores and Harry Potter studios and museums and especially 22 Baker Street.

Sweet Talk (Buchanan-Renard, #10) By Julie Garwood

Sweet Talk (Buchanan-Renard, #10)Sweet Talk by Julie Garwood
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This one was nice

It took me a bit to get into it, since I'm a bit busy.

Anyway the characters were fun to read, especially when they were together and even when they are apart. The author was right when she described the heroine as a pessimist, cause she always thought either she did something wrong or something is wrong with her, and she always expected the worst.

- I liked the hero's version of keeping his distance at times.

- I'm a fan of Popsicle myself, and I sympathize with the hero and his partner XD

- This time the villain was a bit obvious so I knew who it was from the start, we just needed for them to get solid proof it was him.

The Ideal Man (Buchanan-Renard, #9) By Julie Garwood

The Ideal Man (Buchanan-Renard, #9)The Ideal Man by Julie Garwood
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ok this one is going to my favorites shelf XD

- I think this one was a bit shorter than the previous ones but certainly it was amazing.

I loved the couple in her especially him gruff one moment then sweet the next, and she being the first female in this series with a horrible past full of restraining orders and hospitalizations. even their first meeting was a bit funny during the circumstances of the shooting, he thought she was a high schooler XD

- I liked the fact that she was a prodigy since she was in high school at the age of 11! talk about amazing

- I liked the stories the people around her said, like the story her dad said about her outsmarting a professor, the especially the story the sheriff said, I liked the sheriff very much solely for the fact even thought he was acting the delinquent he was the first who came to her rescue.

- In here the villain were a known fact but their wear about were the tricky part, so him being her shadow was a bonus to both of them XD

- Plus this is the first time this book didn't have any connecting to previous books or characters, not that I'm complaining cause the story is amazing, I'm just stating what I'm noticing ^^

- I loved the fact that she was fangirling over his football player brother, and his history having such a diverse and awesome family

Sizzle (Buchanan-Renard, #8) By Julie Garwood

Sizzle (Buchanan-Renard, #8)Sizzle by Julie Garwood
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I think this is one cute suspense book XD

Of course as usual I liked both main characters, the heroine was the mach type who likes to take care of herself and the people she cares about regardless to her safety. The hero was the by the book type of guy and oh how I loved him, the accent was divine XD

- I liked how the heroine was self possessed and seemed to other so self assured even if on the inside she was rattled XD

- I LOVED the hero, and he's the first one in the series with the Scottish lineage that actually knows, becoming a laird and having a keep covered that, but there were scenes I loved even thought nothing important happened, liked when he was with Jack MacAlister, I loved that scene cause it made me recall the Kincaid and MacAlister brothers from the Lairds' Fiancées series, and now their descendants are standing together, ignorant of that long forgotten fact but still became friends.

- And again Julie Garwood concocts an amazing suspense story that keeps the reader anticipating the ending and the unmasking of the villain

- I liked how comfortable he was with the grandmother, and how she took to him instantly, plus the scenes that happened there were funny especially how the heroine keeps telling the hero they can't fool around cause the grandmother doesn't like it XD

- Her parents were a real piece of work, like seriously they are living in their own fantasy world, not only them but the puppet Milo he certainly lived in his own fantasy, how he first saw her then liked her then she became his love and at the end HE left her so he can save her life! he was an entertaining piece to the story XD

BTW what's with the guys and "I need to protect you" sentence every time they wanna go wear a condom? can't they just say I need to wear one or I need to cover up or something, cause every single one of them said it

Fire and Ice (Buchanan-Renard, #7) By Julie Garwood

Fire and Ice (Buchanan-Renard, #7)Fire and Ice by Julie Garwood
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ok I take back what I said in my review in the previous book, I still can't predict Julie Garwood's villains ^^

This book was a bit different in terms of the hero and heroine, here the hero was the type who likes to rile her up and pisses the heroine off, for his own enjoyment. At first I wasn't enthusiastic about reading this one cause it didn't get into the Buchanan family much, but it was good since it showed us plenty of a Buchanan couple.

- I liked the thing with the YouTube video, it certainly gave the book and certain scenes some humor.

- I liked the fact that Jack was Alec's partner, and Sophie was Regan's best friend.

- Of course I hated all the villains in all the books but the ones in this one were beyond despicable, human experimenting is just wrong in every way, and to justify it to since, that's just sounded like a lame bullshit of an excuse to me.

- I liked Sophie's dad, he sounded more like a modern day "gentleman" pirate than a robin hood XD

Shadow Dance (Buchanan-Renard, #6) By Julie Garwood

Shadow Dance (Buchanan-Renard, #6)Shadow Dance by Julie Garwood
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I think this book went by a bit faster than the others, and I evolved my deduction skills a bit more since reading this series XD

The heroine was a bit amusing on how she was all about the facts and tech stuff, but what made it amusing is her interactions with the hero, he made it sound entertaining without truly making fun of the heroine, excluding the teasing of course XD

The hero made an appearance in most of the books so far so I got to know him a bit, the womanizing charmer with sweet motives and honorable background. Since he always flirts but always helps the guy understands that he wants the girl, I liked him because he lessened the denial period that hero's usually get into in most books, thankfully it didn't happen to him.

- I loved how the heroine instantly fit into the town and how the town took instant liking to her, treating her as a regular and such XD

- I mentioned in previous reviews in this series that since I started it I enjoyed the fact that most of the last names are familiar since I've gotten to know them in Ms. Garwood's historical books, but what I loved most and it makes this book kind of special is that it contains a mention about a character in her western series about the Clayborne's and what's also ironic that I expected some of her Scottish characters would be mentioned since the ones doing the research has Scottish origins not the western ones XD

- Plus when I mentioned I evolved my deduction skills I started to guess the villain, accounting her previous books I learned to expected the unexpected, so in this case guess the guy who you wouldn't think of as the bad guy in the first place. In here for example I first thought of the new good sheriff they appointed then from their description of the murderer the guy is huge and that minimize the number, then I thought of that rich rancher, then said no since the villain's henchmen talked bad about him, not in a way a guy who is scared of his boss. So that left one person, and I'm proud to say I discovered him YAAAY!!

Slow Burn (Buchanan-Renard, #5) By Julie Garwood

Slow Burn (Buchanan-Renard, #5)Slow Burn by Julie Garwood
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ms. Garwood's contemporary work is vastly enthralling and I'm loving all the mystery in it.

What I love about this series is the amazing unexpected twists it contains, and the fact that it's not predictable. Usually I can sense the bad guy from the beginning or the middle of the book, but in this series I didn't know till the author herself revealed his identity, and I think this shows how much of a great writer she is.

- The relationship between the main characters was amusing, one second they try to act cold to each other, the next they are over each other trying to tear their clothes off, and the next they act like friends. The fact that the hero knew what he wanted from the beginning was great, he's not the type to be in denial or misery like the heroine but he welcomed it with a shit eating grin XD

- I liked the sub characters, from the sisters to the flamboyant friend, he was amusing the most XD

- I loved the story itself about the heroine getting blown up wherever she went and still they didn't know about the reason for the attempts most of the book.

- I loved the twist about the bomber contacting her to help her, it certainly wasn't expected and it was entertaining.

- I liked the fact that everyone around them turned to the hero for permission or decision making regarding the heroine as if he was her "handler" XD

Murder List (Buchanan-Renard #4) By Julie Garwood

Murder List (Buchanan-Renard #4)Murder List by Julie Garwood
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This series keeps getting better and better ^^

- The couple in here didn't have any appearance in the previous book but they certainly had their presence in here. The couple also reminded me of the Regency Romance books, her all polite and elegant, him with his messy appearance and rakish attitude, which I liked it was a cute combination.

- Also I noticed that the difference in here was that even though as usual we get to know the villains thoughts throughout the story and still get surprised at the end, was the fact that this time we or the couple didn't know the identity of the villain and there wasn't any connection to them.

- I liked how comfortable the hero got and how everyone around the heroine took to him naturally.

- I liked the relationship the heroine had with the people around her especially the teenagers and part-timers, it was so sweet their loyalty to her.

- I liked also the grumpy tech women, and how the heroine could get to her and pulled her in, there showed the true depths of her positive and good attitude toward people.

- I liked the mystery story how intriguing it was, in no way was it predictable, which kept me enthralled wanting to know what will happen next. I'm still not very much used to Julie Garwood's contemporary writing, but so far I'm loving it, the stories keep getting better, the intrigue and mystery pulls you right in.

Killjoy (Buchanan-Renard, #3) By Julie Garwood

Killjoy (Buchanan-Renard, #3)Killjoy by Julie Garwood
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I think this is my favorite from the series so far ^^

- I liked both main characters, and since the last book I was reallyyyyyyyyyyyy curios about John Paul and when I looked through the series to see when he will have his book I was glad it was the third one.

- I liked that the heroine got spunk, I expected no less from any heroine of Ms. Garwood, they are just not the type to stand back and do nothing, her heroines are fighters. Plus I also liked that she kept surprising the hero, he just stereotyped her for the spoiled type since their first meeting was at a spa, so every time she surprised him I had the urge to laugh and tell him that he doesn't know everything. And she's smart, of course all of Ms. Gsrwood's heroines are but in here with her deduction skills and all it was nice and intriguing.

- I liked the family connection and reliance in here, even though they are hundreds of miles apart they still helped and looked out for each other.

- The main villain in the whole story was creepy and a true psychopath, I hated her on the spot, how self-centered she was. And the way she used me disgusted me, I used to think of Monk as the responsible scary precise assassins you see in movies, but he so fell in to her trap that he was pathetic and she was the only reason for him downfall. Plus I hated how she blamed everyone for anything that went wrong and shes the perfect who deserves the world type.

- I liked how Ms. Garwood kept us on our toes about most things, like I knew about the villains from the start but at the end I still got surprised after knowing some facts that I didn't expect. Ok there is a character that I thought badly of since the beginning then I felt sorry for him and started to like him and then the shocking info came.

- Btw I never thought using sugar as an endearment was appealing but John Paul certainly changed that, s I guess the basic element that made me accepts it was the southern accent, it just made me melt XD

Mercy (Buchanan-Renard, #2) By Julie Garwod

Mercy (Buchanan-Renard, #2)Mercy by Julie Garwood
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Personally I haven't expected that I would like Ms. Garwood's contemporary work this much, I felt it was thriller like full of suspense and action, and since it is that yet it didn't give me the annoyed feeling I usually get when I read suspense, usually it's either run or get killed but in this series the characters had a pretense more pronounce than the suspense itself and I liked that cause they are the people who are living in that suspense.

- I disliked one thing in this book and that was how it focused a big part f it on the villains which I found unusual, since her first one in this series and The Bride had something in-common regarding the villains which is giving tidbits about the villains inner dialogue and only revealing his identity at the very end of the book, but in here she introduced them at the very beginning and went to more detail about them.

- I liked the cozy small town, with the naive good-hearted people, I especially like Big Daddy, and the fact that the whole town calls him that even the men, oh and the scene where the hero reprimanded himself saying that they even got him thinking of the man as Big Daddy that was hilarious XD

- I liked the coaching idea, and how the kids and town folk took to him right away, and the scene where at the end that kid ran to him for comfort and nearly landing him on his ass was heartwarming

- I liked that the hero was the take-action type since if he wasn't that then they certainly would have died

- I loved the last part and the epilogue and the hero certainly was impatient XD and the heroine was a stubborn women who was in constant denial

Highlander in Her Dreams (Highlander #2) By Allie Mackay

Highlander in Her Dreams (Highlander #2)Highlander in Her Dreams by Allie Mackay
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I think this book went better with me than the first one, since it at least made sense.

- I liked the part where they went back and forth in time, though I don't know how they started dreaming about each other and even interacting in their dreams, but I liked that part it was their very own version of a dream date, where the dream was the underlined word here.

- I liked both characters, the hero was the typical highland laird and the heroine was the typical strong yet sweet one who was his match in every way.

- I liked the good cousin and how he in a way knew that her coming to their time was for his cousin and it wasn't some coincidence

- I didn't liked the fact that they were in suspense most of the book first her thinking of him not believing her then trying to protect him from dying and preventing the kill, then ditching the past to the present and vice versa

- I liked the hero's meeting with her family ^^ it was nice and cute, yet in a way unreal, like seriously where can you find parents who just got to know that your daughter is marrying an 800 something guy and time traveled and then never getting to see her again, there easy acceptance just wasn't normal cause it was so fast and easy

- Plus the epilogue was interesting (view spoiler)

Heartbreaker (Buchanan-Renard, #1) By Julie Garwood

Heartbreaker (Buchanan-Renard, #1)Heartbreaker by Julie Garwood
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh boy *sigh*

Julie Garwood is the first writer that introduced me to romance books through "The Bride" and since then she was my top favorite author EVER, not one of the favorites but THE favorite ^^ I've been biased to her Historical novels and refused to read her contemporary work since it was thriller-like, but oh boy what have I been missing.

(BTW this is going to be my first review to one of her books, even though I read all her historical works and some even have memorized by heart, but I have read them before I started to write reviews so it kinda felt wrong, first impressions and all that, and anyway her works are all high up in a pedestal in my eyes)

I liked both characters, and it was kinda weird to read a contemporary book written by Julie Garwood, but it was amazing, the suspense part was maybe what I liked best, I couldn't figure out the bad guy till the very end when the hero did, though I suspected him of something else XD (The dog murderer; since he was the only one of the workers who helped the only lady and suddenly at that so I thought he might feel guilty for killing at dog but I never did suspect him as our main psychopath)

The hero was target oriented and I liked that he was honest to a fault telling her that they are going to get hot and heavy, though my only disappointment is that they didn't get as much action as I though, since in her historical works the chemistry and attraction between the couples were off the charts. The heroine was the selfless kind, helps when needed and even volunteered to put her self as bait so he won't kill another one instead and I liked how she didn't bulk, but faced every issue head on, whether it was her brothers disease or the psychopath or even the hero's feelings.

- I liked hearing familiar names like Buchanan and Clayborne since I have read them in her historicals and started imagining maybe these guys are their descendants and stuff like that they certainly left a good background as legacy ^^

- I liked the relationship that ran around the couple like with the brother of the heroine, you cans see he is close to both and he cares about them and vice versa, plus with the other FBI agent, and the boss, and the hero's family, and especially the two old ladies ^^

- I liked the teasing that went on around the hero, whether it was his boss or friend or brother and all were about the heroine

- The airplane phobia was a cute touch ^^

- The ending was cute and made me satisfied even if the book didn't contain an epilogue XD

Trail of Kisses (Hot on the Trail, #1) By Merry Farmer

Trail of Kisses (Hot on the Trail, #1)Trail of Kisses by Merry Farmer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is another book by a new author to me but this one is a bit special ^^ since I was approached by Badass Marketing to write an honest review about it to support the launch of the 6th book in the series ^^ (And it's the first time for me to receive such a request I obviously was over the moon XD)

I liked the characters in the book and especially the hero he was kind and funny and overprotective but not necessarily in an alpha-caveman kind of way ^^. The heroine was bold as brass and I liked that about her, but I also have to admit she is the sole reason I gave it 4 stars, if your read my previous reviews you know that I attracted to all aspects of the book from story line to characters, and I pay special attention to the characters XD so the heroine in this book though she was bold but at the same time she pissed me off couple of times because of her foolishness and her hardheaded stubbornness, but I kept hope that she might redeem herself in my eyes at the end and I'm glad I gave her the benefit of the doubt XD she certainly proved me right.

- I liked how the couple started of their Trail of Kisses on the stream that scene was super cute ^^

- I felt sorry for the heroine at the first scene when she had to say goodbye to her father, but then she totally changed to the stubborn women that refuse to listen to sanity but I liked their banter and how the hero deliberately loses most times just so that the heroine would have the sense of satisfaction she gets at besting him.

- I liked the hero very much, he was understanding and amusing and certainly honest, since who admits to looking at a women's bottom when asked by the owner of that bottom XD Plus I liked how he used any excuse he can get to "keep his eyes on her" XD And he was a very honorable man, the type who without any hesitation takes the blame of any problem that he or his charge did, I noticed something as well most Western books have men who are eager to be married while Regency England men try to avoid it like the plague and since this is obviously western I was glad with the enthusiasm of the hero and a bit sad for him since the heroine certainly took him on a roller coaster ride.

- I crosses paths with Trial related books before but never with this much events and details, and I have to say it was very enlightening how the people are together, the variety, the comradeship, and the gossip. I liked the fact that she made friends and the idea of an older women who took them under her wing, these people weren't ones to judge like the rest, plus I liked the scene when they were looking for a husband for one of the heroine friends, this precise scene was nice since it hinted abut future couples.

- I liked the familiarity and the comfort that the couple found in each other , with the simplest touch they lifted spirits up and reassured hearts and minds.

- Regarding the culprit I suspected him since the beginning though it wasn't obvious but logically he was the one who was there all the time, especially whenever any incident happens.

- Loved the epilogue, and I always wondered how would the family's reaction would be when they end up together.

Every Night I'm Yours (The Spinster Club, #1) By Christie Kelley

Every Night I'm Yours (The Spinster Club, #1)Every Night I'm Yours by Christie Kelley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is my first book by this author (I seem to be checking lots of books for authors who are new to me XD) and I love it.

This book in a way reminds me of Julia Quinn's Bridgertons which is a favorite of mine, and the writing is easy and smooth and the story line and characters were cute ^^

Loved the combination of both the hero and heroine, their chemistry was off the charts XD, I liked how they were comfortable together especially in those two weeks they stayed together, and how the first time he kissed her in the book was cute XD

- I loved the fact that the hero knew he wanted her for her not just simple lust, and his actual purpose was marriage, I liked how he was kind and sweet and understanding.

- I hated the fact that the heroine based all the marriages on the only marriage she observed which was her parents, and obviously it was way less than ideal. But its understandable since at the time the women were a bit confined and didn't get the chance to widen their horizon.

- I liked the fact that mostly everyone supported their relationship and marriage even if one of them denied it. Especially the mom since she acts all stern and commanding but inside she's jumping with joy at the match XD

- I liked how they both had each others back it shows how much their relationship developed and their trust in each other grew.

- I hated the fact that the heroine was stubborn with her denial about the other guy, no matter how many times the hero warns her abut him she still defends him, honestly it was a bit annoying since if you think of it logically you would know that there must be something really wrong with your "friend" if someone keeps warning you about him, plus she started to feel some apprehension toward him yet she still defends and approach him. Yet this still a good thing because the author didn't write a perfect character but a realistic one.

Highlander In Her Bed (Highlander, #1) By Allie Mackay

Highlander In Her Bed (Highlander, #1)Highlander In Her Bed by Allie Mackay
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is my first by this author and the story had a unique twist I haven't crossed before.

I liked most stuff but more often than not I seem to be more confused than engrossed.

- The prologue was sad and and tore at my heart, but there was a part I felt that it was weird, somewhere during the conversations they seemed more interested in the bed than anything else, I found it weird and an awkward conv to have before a person dies.

- The unique twist I mentioned before wasn't the ghost aspect I crossed path with that theme before, but it was the relationship between a ghost and a living women of flesh and blood.

- I liked the relationship development between the two main characters, it certainly was scorching from the beginning till nearing the end, plus I know that he had 700 years to quench his animosity toward her ancestors and clan, and of course she had nothing to do with it, but for him to later wear her clan's sporran and name their child after the man who killed him and sullied his name in history ... well I kinda couldn't get how he could do it (maybe I'm more cold-hearted than I thought XD)

- Now to the confusing part, I know the paranormal has plenty of aspects no one can thinks about, but many areas in the book weren't explained right, like how could a ghost materialize and actually touch and have sex, and how can he reach dreams, and how could he turn from a ghost to a man and still be able to conjure objects out of no where and still see other ghosts. These are few of the stuff that didn't make sense to me, and are the reason I gave the rating I picked.

- I liked how they were reunited and was instantly accepted by her people, especially how he kicked it off with her dad, that certainly was fun to watch ^^

- Oh and how her father was when he finally reach Scotland was hilarious and cute

Alex (Cold Fury Hockey, #1) By Sawyer Bennett

Alex (Cold Fury Hockey, #1)Alex by Sawyer Bennett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This certainly not my first Hockey book, but it is my first book by this author.

I have to admit that I wasn't expecting much fluff from the synopsis but woah how fluffy it was XD I LOVED IT!!

- I have to say the heroine is here was such a saint that when I go back t all the scenes she didn't do anything wrong, and in an awkward way it annoyed me, she's always understanding and forgiving, and that's something a can't do (I'm the type that holds a grudge depending on the person and what they did of course but deeper the offense deeper the grudge, I might pretend that everything is ok and we chat and laugh but it's always in the back or forefront of my mind, the distrust) so maybe that's why I didn't think of the heroine much of a realist cause I don't think people that understanding exist. But in the book itself I loved her I don't know hoe to describe her other than to point out that they are exactly the same reasons the hero likes her.

- Ok I might not be an overall fan of the hero, but I liked how he totally change when he met the heroine, It was really nice to watch that he started to open up sense he knew her and showing his true colors to the people around him. Plus there were parts I didn't like about him, first how hung up he was about the fact she moved on from her past while he couldn't, his dad, his insistence on bottling everything up and finally setting the best thing that happened in his life aside and leave her. That was a really dumb move, but I liked the ending it was a beautiful apology.

- Liked Garrett he was funny and cool and true to himself and his friends, he liked what he liked and who he liked not glossing over anything.

- I liked the little brother, he was so cute, especially when he met the hero and later Garret, then when he established his loyalty toward his sister, since he worships her.

- Loved the last chapter and the epilogue XD

Harder than Words (Montgomery Ink, #3) By Carrie Ann Ryan

Harder than Words (Montgomery Ink, #3)Harder than Words by Carrie Ann Ryan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I think this one is one of my top 2 in this series, I just loved Luc and fell for him over and over and over again.

I've been looking for this book since I started the series and saw how much of an asshole was Meghan's ex, and thank god he became an ex.

- I liked how Luc was with Meghan since the start of the book, was there when she needed someone the most, then kept his distance for a while then he pushed. He pushed for a future they might get together.

- I liked how he was honest with her since the beginning, that he used to love her and now he want to start going out with her.

- I liked how comfortable he was with the kids and how they were with him.

- I didn't like Meghan's attitude at the beginning but it was understandable since she had a dick of a husband for the last 8 years, but I liked how since she started going out with Luc she started to open up. If I'm gonna turn poetical on this situation I would say that she was a flower that missed her chance to bloom to her full capacity since she was engulfed in snow for many years, till Luc came and melted the ice away and gave her her due.

- I love the Montgomery's but why do they have to face this much hardship and those many hospital visits.

- I didn't like Tessa, true her reasons were just but it really wasn't any of her business, it's not like Meghan's fault he left she didn't know.

Tempting Boundaries (Montgomery Ink, #2) By Carrie Ann Ryan

Tempting Boundaries (Montgomery Ink, #2)Tempting Boundaries by Carrie Ann Ryan
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I have to admit this is my least favorite one in the series, do to all the angsty emotions in here.

- I liked Decker and Miranda, the fact that Deck was a the honorary Montgomery and how he grew up with them and all, it reminded me of the main guy of this book How to Handle a Heartbreaker he had mostly the same circumstances with the adopted son of the family with the drunk father. Mir on the other hand was like all the other Montgomery's bold and knew what she wanted.

- The wanna-be Dom with the stalker tendencies and possessive and abusive behavior was a nice touch, hated him on sight.

- Didn't like Griffin much for the fight he initiated with Deck, he made it sound like he turned his sister in to a slave or something, and what was he so hooked on them not telling him anything, they just went out for barely a week and he expected them to kiss and tell? plus that didn't give him the right to talk to Deck the way he did that he didn't belong in the family and that shit, that was low, and it certainly cut deep.

- Liked how the family is so knit tight, it's always get proven when something bad arises.

- The way things happened nearing the end yeah sucked and he certainly didn't make them any better, but I was glad he came back to his senses.

Forever Ink (Montgomery Ink, #1.5) By Carrie Ann Ryan

Forever Ink (Montgomery Ink, #1.5)Forever Ink by Carrie Ann Ryan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I think this story is another another book in my cute shelf, yeah sure it had the hot sweaty dirty sex but still it was cute.

The main couple had a touchy start and it seems to be a common theme in this series and like the previous books it didn't last long and they had hit it fast together. And personally I found the age difference a bit endearing, yeah 15 yrs age gap is a big deal but I liked how they book faced it, especially the heroine, since the hero at first had some trepidation regarding the gap.

- Plus the rich assholes and bitches theme to be very strong in this series, I know it's true but it would have been nice to have one with a rich background to have the support of his family for a change.

- And the way the hero handled his mom and that woman at the end was fist pump worthy, he certainly shown them the boot XD

- I loved the way how the Montgomery Ink family accepted their relationship and even thought that they were right for each other.

Overall, *thumps up*

Delicate Ink (Montgomery Ink, #1) By Carrie Ann Ryan

Delicate Ink (Montgomery Ink, #1)Delicate Ink by Carrie Ann Ryan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the first long book in this series and it's amazing ^^

Austin was introduced in the first novella and it was apparent that he was not feeling right, but we were kept clueless till this book.

I liked the main characters, and the Montgomery Family the most. The main couple were strong mentally and emotionally, facing what been thrown at this in their short relationship isn't easy. I liked the steel on Sierra the most, having a past like that then knowing her boyfriend's father is having cancer then a love child of the boyfriend show up may have bulked some but not her. I liked that she fit in in his life, that he does the same in hers.

- I loved how they instantly settled into a family situation so smoothly, loved how the kid attached himself to Sierra at once, how the dad and the son were so identical in looks and behavior that it was more than cute, I loved the confession time at the last chapter when it started with the kid.

- I noticed something, Austin wasn't the type who deals with crisis's right or instantly, he just freezes but after a while he can start reacting, first it happened with his father's news, then the appearance of his son, slowly he's recovering and joining in.

- The old in-laws were beyond crazy, they literally were mental, they needed to be taken not just to jail but a mental facility years ago, the things they said and did were beyond obsession.

- I didn't liked the secret thing that happened between Shep and Shea it was really idiotic and in a way strained their relationship a bit, but the good thing about the men in this series is that they are pushy, when they want something they push for it.

- And the stalkers part in this book was in a way creepy, the ex from one side, then the ex-in-laws for another side, and both were stalker-like

Overall, *thumps up*
