Review: Lord and Master: The Complete Trilogy

Lord and Master: The Complete Trilogy Lord and Master: The Complete Trilogy by Kait Jagger
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Let’s talk about the characters of this trilogy. And let’s go first to our heroine.

Her name is Luna Greggory and she is an amazing P.A of the Marchioness at Arborage. Can I just say that Luna is badass in her own ways? Seriously she is. She’s sometimes called Ice Princess because she can look at you with cold eyes that could freeze even the boiling water! Okay that one sounds exaggerated but sometimes she really is cold. And I like her because she is strong and independent and doesn’t always submit to a man. Sometimes she dominates too. And she’s a natural when it comes to P.A jobs and she’s very professional too.

I can say that in all the erotica books I’ve read, Luna is the strongest woman I know who doesn’t submit immediately to the man and she also wants to take control from time to time.

And now let’s go to the hero.

His name is Stefan Lundgren. Okay. First impression of Stefan is he’s every bit a guy in most of the erotica books I’ve read in the physical department. And maybe a little bit in the personality but just a little bit. Stefan is a gorgeous man, I can say that. But he didn’t came out as an all-out dominant man in this book. I mean, I feel like Stefan is different from other erotic guys I know. He doesn’t have the alpha male issue, like you know, the need to always be the leader of the relationship. And I like him for it. It made him a realistic character that he knows that Luna is his girlfriend and not just his bed-mate or lover. And that he respects her. And I also love him because one of his weakness are baby lambs! It’s so adorable! I don’t know why I find Stefan Lundgren adorable with all his muscles and sex appeals but he is adorable to me especially when he sees baby lambs!

Review: The Animal Under The Fur

The Animal Under The Fur The Animal Under The Fur by E.J. Mellow
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was so honored and happy to have received an ARC of this book! So I thank Ms. Mellow for giving me a copy of her book for an honest review.

If you guys don’t know what this book is about, it’s an action-romance book! It’s about a woman with the name 3 and a guy named Carter Smith. 3 is a very unique human being and not just the usual unique but she’s unique because it’s in her genes. They are both the star operatives in their respective organization and they both hated each other to the core. When an assignment came that they need to pair up together, well, let’s just say it didn’t have a very good outcome. :D

Bessies, you have no idea that one of my favorite genre is action-romance. (Really Jannin?) Well, anything that has romance in it is my favorite genre but throw some action in and that book is golden! Seriously! It’s one of the factors that had me signing up for the advance copies of this book. :P

I love the characters of Carter and 3, or Nashville if she’s not the operative but just a normal human being. They are both stubborn and they hate losing so much that they ended up being at each other’s throats most of the time. But in terms of being badass, my vote is on 3. Not because she’s a girl and it’s a default choice for me but because she really is badass. Go ask Carter he’ll agree with me! (Hardly. xP)

The book has three point of views, Carter, 3, and Nashville. Though in all honesty, I can’t point the difference from 3 and Nashville. Aside that when it’s Nashville’s point of view, her friend Ceci is always present. And when she’s 3, she’s just like Nashville but maybe colder? I don’t know how to say this without spoilers, hey!

The story of the book is pretty cool. Guns, combats, undercovers, and all these kinds of stuff are pretty cool for me. I seriously love reading action books! :D The plot twist though. The twist is one hell of a twist! And I somehow felt it coming, I really do, but the romance part of the book became somewhat a very good distraction on the mystery lurking right around the corner. So I wasn’t that surprised when I reach the plot twist. Haha! It made me happy though that I saw it first. 

And the part where 3 was faced with a very difficult decision, I understand why she decided the way she did. Like I agree with Carter with his comment about it. (I can just see carter smirking at me right now.) Everything has its limits. Even the coldest heart thaw somehow. (Hi Elsa and Ana! :D)

Oh and 3 reminded me of a tsundere character in an anime. For those people who don’t know what a tsundere is (those people who don’t watch anime, hey) they are the kinds of characters who have cold hearts and are hostile in the beginning but then they gradually warms up along the way. Yeah. 3 is pretty much like a tsundere. Because there are those tsundere characters in an anime that they are cold and hostile to other characters aside from one character they are already closed with from the beginning. And 3 has a very close friend that she considers a family and her name is Ceci.

So to wrap this up, this is a freaking good book for all action-romance lover out there! I recommend you, bessies, should read this. It’s badass and cool and just awesome! :D

That’s it for this review! The book will be out this coming March 30th 2017! So make sure to check this out! :D

Review: Alex

Alex Alex by Zoya Tessi
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book is about a girl whose life is in danger and in order to protect her, her father hired a bodyguard for her. That bodyguard’s name is Alex. And both of them can’t stand each other’s company. They’re always fighting and going on each other’s throats. Until a day come that neither of them can’t last a day without the other.

Okay. If you read that one it sounds pretty romantic right? I mean there’s a saying that says “The more you hate, the more you love”. It applies to them big time.

Review: What I Need

What I Need What I Need by J. Daniels
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hiya peeps!

How are you all?

Been a while since I last posted a review here because of school stuff and some other things. But worry no more! For here I am bringing you a new review of a book from one of my all-time favorite author, J. Daniels!!

Now you see, when her book, What I Need the fourth book of the Alabama Summer Series, came live last Monday (March 5th), I just got to have it and devour it. You guys know how much I love Daniels’s works right? So despite having quizzes this week and midterms next week, I still read her latest release. I planned on binge reading the book but then again quizzes so I just finished it tonight, like two minutes ago.

And now I can’t wait to share my thoughts about this! I know I’m going to have a hangover on this cause I’m already feeling it days before I finished reading it. Haha!

If you guys don’t know about the Alabama Summer Series, it is a series about a group of friends who found love in the most interesting, amazing, and sometimes funny and awkward way. And in this fourth book of the series, it tells the story of CJ Tully and Riley Tennyson.

In all honesty, I didn’t know that CJ was officially part of the Bama Boys because at first I thought he was just a minor character. I seriously didn’t expect him having his own part of the series. But I still waited for his book and read it so bad my phone almost got dead on me.

I gotta say, of all the books in the Alabama Summer Series this book is my second most favorite! Of course, my beloved Reed Tennyson’s When I Fall, the third book, will always be the first. Also one of the factor that made me love What I Need is there are a lot of updates in Reed and Beth’s life because Reed is Riley’s big brother.

Book Tour (Excerpt + Giveaway): Curse of Stars by Donna Compositor

Hiya peeps!

How are you all? Been a while.

Welcome to my tour stop of the Curse of Stars by the amazing Donna Compositor! I am here to give you an excerpt of the story! Read it and check the book out!

Title: Curse of Stars 
Author: Donna Compositor
(Diamond Crier #1)
Publication date: February 19th 2017
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

Synopsis: Sabi Perez is the last Diamond Crier, only she doesn’t know it. Not until a crazed ruler from another world comes to collect her priceless tears and won’t take no for an answer.

Living in New York, Sabi’s seen some nasty things, but the lengths to which her captor will go to keep his crown are things found only in the darkest nightmares. Afraid and alone, Sabi finds solace in her cellmate, Anya, and Cabal, a fellow Crier who also has powers, a rare combination that buys his favor from the ruler. Only it’s a favor he doesn’t want.

In a fit of rage, power erupts out of Sabi, the same power Cabal has, and a spark of hope ignites. Together they may have a chance at escape, something no other Crier has done. Except a ruler hellbent on draining them of every last diamond tear isn’t their only hurdle. If they escape they’ll be hunted to the ends of the earth, if they survive the trek to safety. If they stay the ruler will leech them dry. Sabi would rather die trying than lie down and die, even if that means running away into even more danger.
