Just A Post

I saw this question on Goodreads and I wanted to share my experience.  I developed a love for reading when I was around the age of 10.  I started reading these books titled, The Babysitters Club, and I was so amazed by the adventures that I had taken me that I became addicted.  I grew up in a family of 6 with 2 brothers and two sisters and you can imagine how much "me" that I could manage to have.  Soon enough, reading a good book became my escape and my next genre of books were suspense.  As I got into high school, I discovered the romance genre and the rest is history.  Harlequin books were my favorite books and let me tell you that I bought them in packs with the little extra money that I received from my summer job.

While some people like to party and drink, I would rather drink and read a book.

Rating:  5 Stars














I actually really loved this book and its characters. I know that a lot of people were actually upset because this is actually a prequel to book one of the series. I would actually be upset too if it wasn't for the fact that this book took so long to be released, so i kinda forgot the specifics of Matt and Sami's relationship. I was really looking forward to a continuation of their relationship from book one, but unfortunately I received a back story. Matt is a hockey player who also comes from money and Sami is a heiress who loves to party. Sami, to me, is a rich, lonely girl with low self-esteem issues and she meets Matt on a eventful night. Under the impression that he does not know who she is, she grows fond of Matt and they share an eventful kiss in the back of the cab. Fast forward a little later, they run into each other at a club and neither one seems to want to acknowledge the other. This misunder…

I am a Die-Hard Book Worm

This is how I felt when the Timeless Series by E. L Todd ended.  Lol.!!  When a series is so good that I do not want to even go to work and fall into a deep depression.

Combust (Book Four Electric Series) E. L Todd

Author: E.L Todd
Release Date: October 11, 2016
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Rating: 4 Stars
I honestly think that the fact that these books were broken up into four parts and released on the same day is ridiculous.  Book One and Book two could have easily been combined and it would have been a wonderful story and the same goes for book three and four.  Book four picks up after the big "break up" of Volt and Taylor and we get a little closer to the showdown between Volt and Sarah. Volt and Taylor kissed and made up, so I really did not see a reason to read the last book of the series.  Simply because my mom did not raiser a quitter, I decided to go  ahead and read the book.  There is no mistaking that Volt and Taylor is a good couple and this book has too many sex scenes for me and it took too long to get to the answer that I already knew the answer too.  Now I love sex scenes, but not when it weighs down the story and I thought this was novel, not an erotica.
I really feel for …

Burn (Book Three) By E.L Todd

Book Information
Author: E.L Todd
Release date: October 11, 2016
Genre: Romance
Rating: 4 Stars













Now we get some action and a little conclusion to the whirlwind of emotions that I have endured.  Book three is better than book two, but not quite up the ranks as book one.  This book picks up where book two ends with Taylor and Volt at her parents for Thanksgiving.  In this book, Taylor finally learns of Volt's true feelings and the book takes off from there.  I have to admit that they make a cute couple and all of their sweetness gives me cavities. Muahhh.!!!  Anyways, Volt finally admits his feelings and Taylor acknowledges hers as well.  Now you would think that after such a long time that Volt and Taylor would get it on, right?  If you thought so, the you would be incorrect. It took them about half of the book to get it on and when they do get it on, it takes about five pages to do it.  The one thing that I love about E.L Todd is her love scenes in her books, but the love scenes in th…

Spark (Book Two) by E.L Todd

Book Information Author: E.L Todd Release date: October 11, 2016 Genre: Contempary Romance Rating: 3 Stars
I am sad right now.  I am sad because my thirst has not been quenched.  This book accomplished nothing and I am still waiting for the conclusion.  I actually thought that this book would mention Jared and Natalie again because I really want to know about their relationship.  This is book 2 in the Electric series and I just wish that the author would have combined book one and book two.  In the first book, which I loved, Volt and Taylor are friends and Volt realizes that he has strong feelings for Taylor and he believes that if he tells her how he feels that it will ruin their friendship.  It was adorable in book one because it gave his character depth and who wouldn't want a hot guy drooling over them, but in this book it goes on and on.  

It just baffles me that they have only been friends for a short amount of time and she is already saying that she can't live without Volt …

Charge by E.L Todd

Book Information Author: E.L Todd Release Date: October 11, 2016 Genre: Contemporary Romance Rating: 5 Stars
I have been a fan of this author since her novel, "Into the fire", was released.  E. L Todd is  a real romance story teller and this story further supports her skills.  Her writing makes me feel the character's words and allow me to see the world through their eyes.  Though the story is written in first point of view, it isn't wordy or someone's irrelevant inner thoughts. This story is about Volt, a CEO of his Tutoring program for the SATs and Taylor, a teacher at a prestigious, private school.  On her first day at her new job, she meets fellow teacher Natalie. Natalie invites her to a bar with her friends and that is where she meets Volt.  At first sight, Taylor is attracted to Volt, but he is emotionally unavailable. Volt is sexy in his own right and he knows it.  After discovering the Volt is not looking for a relationship, but a quick lay, Taylor vows that…

The Wildest Kind of Pretty

Book Information Author: R.J Abell Genre:Young Adult/Romance Released: September 13, 2016 Rating: 1 Star 




This story is not for me and since I am a dedicated reader, i will elaborate on why this book was not for me. First off, the main character, Lexi, was not a good heroine. I know that she is only 15, but sheesh, she was really shallow. This is the summary of the book in two sentences.......This story is about a girl who has low self-esteem, so she pushes the guy that she likes on her best friend,Kammie, because she thinks that her best friend is prettier than her and believes that Kammie and this guy is a perfect match. Eventhough she knows that Kammie has a crush on her cousin, she insist on trying to play matchmaker and once they start to date, or so they call it, she becomes jealous and makes out with said guy. That is the summary of this book in nutshell.You see, Lexi is a freshman in high school and she is introduced to the awesome, attractive senior named Blake, which is her cousi…

Turbulent Desires

Book information: date released: November 08, 2016 author: Melody Anne genre: Romance  Rating: 2 stars
I had high hopes for this book because I absolutely loved book one, but I was wrong.  This is book 2 in the Aviators series and it is about Maverick and Lindsey, Stormy's best friend from book one.  Lindsey and Maverick had a one night stand at Stormy's wedding (sound familiar) and a year later Lindsey is attacked at work.  She was nearly killed and this experience caused her to get PTSD.  Stormy and Cooper offers her place to stay and Maverick makes it his mission to show Lindsey that the world can be a beautiful place.  The plot in this story was strong, loving and it was different.  I feel that it was not nurtured enough to make this a great and interesting story.  Melody Ann is one of my favorite authors, but this book is not her best work.   I really hate to write these words, but….this book was a complete bore.  I do not know what happened with these two characters, but it …
