Big Rock by Lauren Blakely

I read this book in about a day. It's a quick easy read that doesn't take much time or thought from the reader. I have read other books by the same author and didn't like them too much but I thought I would give this one a try. I thought this book was going to be great. The cover looked great. I am one of those people that judges a book by it's cover. I know that's not a great way to find a good book, but I still do it. The cover of this book gave me high hopes and it fell flat. I think I really need to stop judging the cover, maybe I then will find a great book. I haven't had one of those in awhile.

Spencer the main man of the book seemed too girlish to me. He's suppose to be handsome, sexy and a playboy that knows his way around in the bed, but I didn't get that feeling. He over thought some things and some of the stuff he did or said seemed more like something a girl would say or do. I got the feeling that the author wrote the book from what a woman thinks a man does or says or thinks instead of what it actually guy does. If that makes sense.  I have read other books in guy's POVs and I love them. Those books capture what a guy is feeling and thinking, this book didn't do that.

The main girl Charlotte wasn't that bright. She had a douchy ex that wouldn't leave her alone or so she said, but in the book he only really bothered her once. She texted herself and continue to text herself even after she knew she was texting herself. She didn't say how she was feeling or thinking. She made Spencer always lead and that seemed way too boring. Spencer and Charlotte were suppose to be best friends from college but that acted more like coworkers.

The jokes, banter and chemistry between the main character were lacking and corny. I just didn't like anything about the book. The plot even fell flat. I would think the seasoned author would write a better book than what I read.

Series I Have Read..

I know I haven't been on a lot lately. Life has gotten away from me and I have been very busy. I still make time to read and over think what I read. I just haven't had time to write about what I read or over think about. Right now, I am in to series. I want to read books that have multiple books in a series with the same character appearing in them. The books don't necessary have to be about the same character but like secondary characters. There has been some series of books that I have read over the last couple of month that I love and some that I didn't.

Books That Released The Last Couple Of Months

The last couple of months I haven't been on here much. Life has gotten away from me. Between school, work and a family, I haven't had time to read or blog. I wish that wasn't the case. I love to read. I love finding a good book and losing myself in it. There haven't been that many books over the last couple of months that have came out that looked worth my time. I haven't read a very good book in a long time. I need a good book. All that being said, there are a couple of books that have came out that look like they would be good.

Mr Grey (Fifty Shades #4) by E.L James

What can I say about this book? I was dying to read it and it didn't disappoint. I had always wonder what was going on in Christian's head. I am so glad I got to read his book. It help me understand him so much better. I hope and pray the author writes the other books in his POV.

Christian had a very had life and I loved that the author included little snippets of his past in the book. I loved how he had nightmares and I got to read how his life was when he was younger. It made him the way he is and it only makes me feel that much more sorry for him. Not everyone has the perfect life and the author made sure the reader saw that.

I liked how complete different Ana and Christian were and are, yet they were perfect for each other. Ana brought a different side of Christian out and made him feel. In the other books in the series, Christian seemed cold and distant but now seeing things from his side, I could tell he was confused. He didn't understand why he felt so strongly for Ana in such a short time.

I don't know why so many people hate the book or the series. They're not best but the overall love story is a great story. These two people experienced many of their first together and that's so rare these days. I loved that most about the books. Most people have all the firsts when their teenagers and save nothing for the guy they're gonna spend the rest of their life with. It's almost a waste. I loved Ana and Christian's love story not so much the other stuff.

Craving Trix (The Aces' Sons #1) by Nicole Jacquelyn

I liked this book. It was short, sweet and got to the point fast. But I also had a problem with that. Trix and Cameron have been part of the other books and I have always wonder if they were gonna get together. You could tell they cared about each other in the The Aces Series, but I just didn't know how the author would put them together since there is an age gap.

Trix has loved Cameron basically since she met him. He has always been her best friend. After something embarrassing happens between them when Trix was a teenager, she stops talking to him. It breaks Cameron's heart but he knows its for the best. After several years, things are bad in the club and Cameron decides to stay with Trix even though she doesn't want him too. That's when things heat up. Way up.

Trix and Cameron haven't been a part of each other lives in a long time, yet Cameron moves in with her and in a matter of days they're sleeping together. Cameron says he has always wanted her but I got the feeling like Cameron felt more like her brother in the beginning of the book than a potential boyfriend. Things moved really fast. I would have liked the book to go a little slower. It was like, Trix and Cameron are friends, Trix hates Cameron, Cameron moving in with Trix, Trix and Cameron are together in that order. There was no build up, they just got together and I felt like it was out of left field.

This book was disappointing to me. I was expecting way more than I got. At the end of Farrah and Casper's story when Cameron says Trix is pregnant, I thought Trix and Cameron had some secret romance that no one knew about. I mean them sneaking around would have been a better story than what I got. Don't get me wrong, I did like the book. I love MC books, I was just wanting more of everything to make it a great book like the author's other books.

I definitely hated the drama. There was no build up to it. Trix and Cameron would be laughing and having fun then BOOM, Trix would get mad at something she was thinking about and take it out on Cameron. I expected so much more. However, I will still probably more of the series and pray it gets better.

Amber to Ashes (Torn Hearts #1) by Gail McHugh

Teaser 1:
“Ah, she came,” he says triumphantly. He drops his helmet and threads his fingers through the fence separating the bleachers from the field, resting them over mine. “So?”
“So?” I stare into his smiling eyes as I mentally tell my fingers to chill out despite his touch.
“So what’d ya think?”
“I think it’s hot as hell.”

Teaser 2:
I bite my lip and stare at him, my fogged-out brain warped in every sense of the word. “Maybe I’d be at your place if you hadn’t decided that kissing me twice without my permission was a brilliant idea.”
“Ah, how quickly you so conveniently forget that you kissed me the last time our lips touched.” A slow smile touches his mouth as he taps his finger against the tip of my nose.
My nostrils flare, his smell of cigarettes and musky cologne nearly stopping my heart.

Teaser 3:
“Christ. Just kissing you fucks me up,” he says with a heavy rasp, sucking on my bottom lip. “I knew you’d become an addiction.”

Black Rainbow by J.J. McAvoy

Teaser 1:
"Jeez, I've never seen him so attached to anyone," she said as she exhaled deeply.

Teaser 2:
"If you take hold of that, you better know what to do with it."

Teaser 3:
"Whenever we're alone, I only have a few minutes, sometimes seconds. We never really have the chance to just talk, so instead, I end up jumping you like some horny teenager. As fun as that is, I still would love to get to know you more."

Teaser 4:
If she kissed me now, she would become a student who knowingly seduced her professor, and if I kissed her now, I would become a professor who preyed on my student. Either way, we were both screwed, so fuck it.
