Kristen Callihan – Fall (VIP, #3) | Review

41721680._sy475_

Fall by Kristen Callihan. I usually add a short description here. I am speechless this time. I fell.

I.
Am.
Wrecked.

A few days ago I discovered Kristen Callihan. This resulted in me devouring her work. In a span of two or three days I’ve read the first two books in her VIP series: Idol and Managed. And now I have finished Fall. I fell in love. Not only with some of the characters, but with Callihan’s writing. So seamless, natural, realistic, emotional, strong… need I continue? Or are you hooked already? Because I was hooked before I even managed to finish the first chapter of the first book I read by this marvelous woman.

Penelope Douglas – Punk 57 | Review

32766597._sy475_

Punk 57 by Penelope Douglas is a romance novel like no other I’ve read before. And I am still unsure if that is a good or a bad thing…

This a story of two teenagers, both angsty, misunderstood and very much in love. For nearly seven years Ryen and Misha have been communicating through letters. Everything suddenly changes when they meet for the first time. The events that follow aren’t easily explained.
This is a true coming of age story. We follow the tale of two kids being faced with life-changing circumstances that change their lives forever.

Kristen Callihan – Idol (VIP, #1) | Review

Idol is the first book in the VIP series written by Kristen Callihan. It is however the second book by this author I’ve read. My love for this author was born when I read the second book in this series – 29541818._sy475_ManagedThat nudged me to read all the books in the series. 

I had great expectations going into this book since Managed left me speechless and in love with Callihan’s writing. I was not let down. The humour, the wit and the emotion… How does she do it? And how does she do it so seamlessly?

Idol did not out-top Managed for me, but that is simply due to the characters. I enjoyed Sophie and Gabriel a bit more. Nevertheless, Callihan’s magical character development came through once again. Both the female protagonist Liberty and the male protagonist Killian were amazingly fleshed out and tangible. I loved the way their relationship was intense.

Kristen Callihan – Managed (VIP, #2) | Review

What I am about to present to you is a singularly phenomenal reading experience within the romance genre. At least for me. Don’t worry, I will provide you with many argum30325011._sy475_ents for this statement.

Managed written by Kristen Callihan is a second book in the VIP series. Even though Idol, the first book, is similarly excellent, this one overshadowed it immensely for me. We follow a story of Gabriel Scott, a manager for one of the biggest rock bands in the world at the moment – Kill John, and Sophie Darling, an ex-paparazzo. Their relationship is quite unique in my opinion. Not because the trope of a damaged and guarded male protagonist and a female protagonist with a dark past. The trope is quite common within the romance genre. However, the author’s capability to create a believable plot, characters with complex emotions and dialogue I can actually imagine people having in real life excited me immensely.

Carian Cole – Torn (All Torn Up, #1) | Review

Author’s Note: ** Please note: there is NO underage sex in this book. There is NO incest or blood relation in this book. This is NOT an MC Club story. This is NOT erotica. This is a slow burn romance. This book is intended for readers 18 years and older **

42832506._sy475_

Torn by Carian Cole is a quite interesting romance novel. Some would say it is taboo and I wouldn’t disagree. The story follows a seventeen-year-old Kenzi and her much older „uncle“ Toren/Tor. Tor is her parents’ best friend and has spent almost every second with Kenzi since the moment she was born. They’ve always had a special bond which grew from a family-like relationship to friendship. However, a few months before her eighteenth birthday she looks and him one day and realizes there is an another emotion within her she’d never felt for him or anyone else before.

This book gave me a specific feeling about it which I couldn’t pinpoint for some time. But, now I can verbalize it. I feel like the book was to long. It felt like I was watching an extended version of an already long movie.

Lilah Pace – Asking for It (Asking for It, #1) | Review

23398817Asking for It is the first book in Lilah Pace’s book series of the same name. It is a deeply disturbing erotica novel that brings us into the life of Vivienne Charles. Vivienne has a very specific sexual fantasy which stops her from having a healthy romantic relationship. She believes her twisted fantasy can never be brought to life until she finds Jonah Marks, a man as twisted as her.

Reader Advisory: Asking for It deals explicitly with fantasies of non-consensual sex. Readers sensitive to portrayals of non-consensual sex should be advised.

While reading this book I was on edge almost all the time. The way everything was portrayed was disturbing. I am not saying the book is badly written, just that sometimes I simply had to put it down to distance myself from it.

Monica Rush – Virgin Fix (The Virgins #1) | Review

43520292Virgin Fix by Monica Rush is an erotica about a girl who finds herself alone in a “scary” world and has to turn to a man from her past. She is very attracted to him, and he to her. They face a few obstacles before being happy.

I am having a hard time writing about this book since I disliked it so much. It was incredibly unrealistic. The characters were shallow and they seemed to have only one interest – each other. Moreover, most importantly – the writing was terrible!

I don’t know what else to say. The book is short, only ninety pages. Still, the plot would fit into twenty or even less.

I don’t even want to get into the whole title thing. The book is named Virgin Fix. What? What kind of a name is that? Why is it insinuated that being a virgin is a bad thing? This simply makes me angry.

I do not recommend anyone to read this book. It is a waste of time!

 

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

Tiffany Reisz – The Red | Review

thered-cover-ebook-v2

The Red is an erotica, romance novel by Tiffany Reisz.

The Red follows a story od Mona Lisa St. James. It starts in medias res – Mona is in deep debt and on the verge of selling her art gallery called The Red when a mysterious stranger in a well-fitted suit appears in the gallery late at night and gives her the most ungentlemanlike proposal.
We then follow Mona into some of the most surreal situations which are almost all the time borderline supernatural and quite unreal.

At first, I must admit, I was quite judgy and quick to condemn this book to a low rating and with it a very negative review. However, as I sank deeper and deeper into the story I found myself quite fond of the characters and interested in their fates.
