Down London Road (On Dublin Street #2) by Samantha Young

I didn't like Down London Road at all. It seemed to drag on forever and I lost interest in the story halfway through the book. I didn't like the whole love quadrant. Jo has a boyfriend and Cam has a girlfriend but they secretly want each other. They should of just broke up with their partners and got together instead of dragging the book on forever.

The names in the book were too similar to each other. Jo, Joss, Callum, Cam, Cole, Becca, Braden, Brian. I kept getting confused at what was going on and with who. Jo has too many love interests and I guess the whole point of her talking about them was so the reader could understand her better, but it just confused me more. I didn't need to know her whole love life in the story.

I didn't like the built up to Cam and Jo getting together. I knew it was going to happen but it was taking way to long and then when it finally happen, it was bland. They didn't really have chemistry or even lust. It seemed more like a friendship to me. Nothing good in this happen until the end. That's where it got interesting and was sort of a page turner. 

Jo just didn't seem like a woman I could relate to. I understood her problems, her family issue and the reason she dates rich men but as a person she seemed really boring. Cam seemed like an alright hot guy, but he too didn't really peek my interest. I like Cole, Jo's younger brother. He seemed like a nice kid even though he was a teenager and they're normally really bratty in real life. 

This book wasn't for me. I just couldn't get into it and was boring.

Heaven's Sinners (The MC Sinners #2) by Bella Jewel

Heaven's Sinners was an okay book for me. I liked the characters in this book better than the first one. I like the different perspective aspect of the book. I like when the author writes the story from both points of view. I like knowing what is going on in each characters head. I didn't like how whiny Ciara was. I don't know if it was just me but Ciara complained and whined a lot. A little too much for a grown woman. I like how she was dealing with everything and was on her own in a way but the crying was too much. Spike was a typically man and didn't show his emotions a lot. He also couldn't make up his mind. He wanted Ciara but then he didn't want her. I though only females changed their minds as much as Spike did.

Spike is dealing with butt loads of guilt and regret that came from loosing his wife which also happens to be Ciara's sister. Ciara and her family blames Spike for her death. Ciara is also mad at Spike for choosing her sister over her. Ciara and Spike were friends that always wanted each other but never told each other their feelings. Ciara always came in second place when it involved her sister. She could never get out from behind her shadow. She always thought Spike would choose her over her sister. However, Spike got tired of being in the friend zone and moved on to the sister. They need up getting married and she dies in a car chase.

Ciara hates that Spike chose her sister and also hates her sister for being with Spike. She still wants Spike after everything that happen. She decides to forgive him and move past their past. She wants to help Spike get over everything. They become friends again with a little extra benefits too. Spike is out for revenge against the man that killed his wife. Ciara doesn't want Spike to go after him. Spike ends up hurt and in the hospital and Ciara ends up pregnant. At first, Spike doesn't want kids but then warms up to the idea. Spike tells Ciara it was always her. He always wanted her and loved her even when he was with her sister.

There is some steamy sex scenes, more baggage and some off the wall craziness. I liked Spike a lot more than Cade from the first book. I think his character is super sexy and mysterious. This book was more emotional but it just wasn't for me. I had a hard time getting into it.

Trust In Me by Jennifer Armentrout

Trust in Me lets you in on Cam’s side of the #1 New York Times Bestselling story.
Cameron Hamilton is used to getting what he wants, especially when it comes to women. But when Avery Morgansten comes crashing into his life – literally – he finally meets the one person who can resist his soulful baby blues. But Cam’s not ready to give up. He can’t get the feisty and intriguing girl out of his head.

Avery has secrets, secrets that keep her from admitting the feelings Cam knows she has for him. Will persistence (and some delicious homemade cookies) help him break down her barriers and gain her trust? Or will he be shut out of Avery's life, losing his first real shot at the kind of love that lasts forever?

I kissed her, pressing my lips to hers, working at the seam of her mouth until she opened, allowing me in. The taste of her skin had sparked a fire deep inside me, but the feel of her warm mouth ignited a blazing fire. I couldn’t get enough of her lips, of her kisses or the soft, breathy sounds she was making.

I groaned as I slid my hand out from underneath her, guiding her onto her back. Her body immediately stiffened, and I knew I needed to tone it down. The last thing I wanted was to scare her.
God, that was the last thing.

Cupping her cheek, I softly kissed her until her body relaxed under mine and then, shocking the hell out of me, her small hand ended up under my shirt, pressing against the bare skin of my abs.
It was like being branded.

Heat roared through my veins as my body jerked on reflex. Air punched from my lungs. She wanted to touch me? Holy hell, she could touch me. I pulled back, reached down and yanked my shirt over my head.

Avery’s mouth parted as her gaze moved over my chest, the tattoo, and then down. It was like a touch, but better. My body was burning to feel hers.

I tugged the comforter down and planted my hands on either side of her head, tangling them in her hair. There was a primal part that took over when her hands flattened over the lower part of my stomach. My entire body tightened.

I dropped my forehead to hers. “You have no idea what you do to me.”


From my all time favorite book series. This Man by Jodi Ellen Malpas. There are a lot of heart-melting, funny, sappy quotes but these top them all or at least in my case they do.

"No!” I push him away from me. “You’re not manipulating me with your delicious Godliness!”
He grins that roguish grin. “You think I’m a God?”  - This Man

“You're painfully beautiful and all mine. Kiss me.” - This Man  

“Someone needs a cuddle.” - This Man

Zero, baby.”   - This Man

“I am confident, because you said yes. Or was it....." He looks up to the ceiling in deep thought and then back at me. "Oh, I remember. It was...yes, yes, yes, fucking hell, yes!” - Beneath This Man

“You're mine, and mine alone, baby. Just for my eyes, just for my touch and just for my pleasure. Just mine. Do you understand me?” - Beneath This Man

“Damn you, Jesse Ward, of an age I don't know!” - Beneath This Man  

“You're so handsome." I mumble dreamily, as he starts working the cream over every inch of my back. "I think I'll keep you forever.” - Beneath This Man  

"Your arrogant God wants to spend the rest of his life smothering you with his love and his body." - Beneath This Man

“We’re not conventional, baby. But we’re special. What we have is really special. You belong to me, and I belong to you. It just is. It’s not natural for us to be apart, Ava.” - This Man Confessed  

“Baby, my heart’s splitting. I hate fighting with you.’ - This Man Confessed

"Ava, one day I'm gonna shove a bar of soap in your mouth.” - This Man Confessed  

“I don't want to take my eyes away from your face." "No?" He shakes his head mildly. "They'll be lace if I do, won't there?" I nod. "White lace?" "Ivory." His chest expands slightly. "And you're taller, so you've got heels on.” - This Man Confessed

I need..

I just finished Beautiful Bastard and now I need something else to read. I like funny, sappy romance novels but there isn't anything that is catching my interest. I wish some books that I have been dying to read would already come out so I can read them not. 

Beautiful Bastard/Bitch by Christina Lauren

Beautiful Bastard was brilliant. It was a heart-felt romance with the perfect amount of sex and banter.
I love when the couple argues and fights like crazy but can't stand to be away from each other. This book was fast paced and starts off with a bang. I love how the book is from the both of the characters perspectives.

Bennett and Chloe hook up pretty quick. Normally, when the couple gets together early and there is no build up of their relationship, it annoys me but with this book, it was exciting. Bennett is Chloe's boss. Chloe is the intern. Their relationship is frown upon but they don't see it as a relationship but more as hate-f*****g. They cannot stand each other. They argue and drive each other crazy but they have this weird thing where they can't get enough of each other. 

There is a lot of sex in the office but the steamy scenes don't overshadow the romance aspect of the story. Bennett respects Chloe as a business woman even though they argue. He knows she is smart and is going places after she finishes her masters. He slowly falls for her. He likes that she gives just as good as she gets. He is afraid to lose her as his intern and his lover. Chloe overhears Bennett talking down about her and her feelings get hurt. 

Instead of talking to him and acting like a normal adult, she leaves. She cuts all contact off with Bennett and quits her job. They both mope around for a couple of months. Bennett gets updates about Chloe from her best friend. Finally, Bennett grows some balls and goes to Chloe. He tells her how he feels. 

I love the banter, the name calling, the driving each other absolutely crazy, the obsession of ripping panties and the realization that they are perfect for each other. I swoon over Bennett. It wasn't that he was gorgeous or rich but more that he was a jerk but he cared about Chloe so fierce. I didn't like the cliffhanger. They finally get back together and the book ends. 

Beautiful Bitch picks up a year after Beautiful Bastard ended. Chloe and Bennett are still together and are sort of going through a rough patch. They work so much that they don't see each other often. They miss each other. 

In Beautiful Bitch there are flash backs from the past year of their relationship. It is still in both of the perspectives. They still argue, love each other and Bennett's obsession with ripping Chloe's panties. There isn't a lot that happens in the book. They both just realize that they want to be together forever. I like how it was a short continuation of their love story. I didn't like how it sort of ended in a cliffhanger. I wanted to know what happen after she said yes. 

Sunday, November 17, 2013


Currently, I am reading Beautiful Bastard and Beautiful Bitch by Christina Lauren. I know this book has been out for awhile but I wasn't really interested in reading it but I had nothing else to read so I am giving it a try.

Chosen Heart by Stephanie Nash

I was expecting a lot more from this book. I thought it would have it all. The hot rich older guy, the young native beautiful girl, the love, some drama and their forbidden romance but it didn't work for me. Their romance seemed rushed, within 40 pages of reading they were already crazy about each other and missing each other. It was just too fast paced with no built up. I love the build up and chemistry and this book just didn't have it for me.

Elyssa and Alex kept their romance a secret. Alex acts all hot and cold. He's confusing. He wants her but then it seems like he would get mad at her and push her away. Elyssa seemed really native and confused by Alex. They both have secrets and Elyssa is the only to really share hers until this big blow up when Alex tells her about his personal life. Elyssa's secret seemed like it was going to be more of a secret to me. Throughout the book, it made it seem like something big really happen but then I found out and it didn't seem like such a problem. Alex's secret threw me off. I wasn't expecting his secret to go down the way it did.

There were parts of the book that seemed out of place. Like almost the author wanted to create drama and threw some messed up stuff in there. Early in the book, Elyssa lets her secret be known but somehow that's not the secret that screw her up, she had another secret. There were somethings that could have been left out and made the book a lot better. I also didn't like the whining from Elyssa, the repeat of events and the insecurities. Alex would ignore Elyssa. Elyssa would get hurt feeling because of it. She would try and make Alex jealous. Alex would yell at her. He would accuse her of cheating on him and not really wanting him. Elyssa would reassure she wanted him. They would make up. It was like this over and over again.

There were some steamy sex scenes but Elyssa and Alex's whole relationship seemed rushed and the sex just didn't follow the book. Elyssa said she doesn't have sex unless she is in a relationship but jumps into bed with Alex after knowing him for about a week and only have talked to him a handful of times here and there. Alex says he doesn't do relationship at all because of his past but wants to make Elyssa his right from the moment he sees her. The jealousy between the two is over the top and completely not needed. Elyssa and Alex also act very immature for people that are suppose to be near their 30s.

The characters are not well written and aren't realistic. The storyline isn't even that interesting to me. This book just didn't work for me. It wasn't a good romance novel at all.

One Tiny Lie by K.A. Tucker

I liked this book more than Ten Tiny Breaths. The characters and problems seemed more relatable. I loved Livie in Ten Tiny Breaths and I was so glad she got her own book. She was the more stable one in Ten Tiny Breaths. She didn't seem like she had any real problems. I also loved her male counterpart, Ashton. He was funny, sweet, caring and had secrets. Which who doesn't. It wouldn't be a story if one character wasn't screwed up somehow. This book was different than I thought it was going to be. I thought I had figured out what was going to happen, but then it took a twist and went a complete different way. My favorite was the little quotes and banter between the characters.

One Tiny Lie starts off with Livie leaving for college. Kasey and Livie's shrink wants her to live a little. After her tragic past and family stuff made her grow up too fast, she acts more mature than her age. They want her to be her age, make mistakes and have regrets like everyone else her age. Livie is too put together and perfect. On her first night at school, Kasey takes Livie out partying. She wakes up to no good memories, a tattoo and a dorm room full of people who she doesn't know. Ashton is one of those people. Ashton remembers everything that happen but they both agree to forget everything. 

Livie meets Ashton's best friend Connor. Connor is everything Livie is looking for and more. However, Livie can't seem to get Ashton out of her head. Livie starts hanging out with Connor sort of. He is really into school and cancels on her a lot. She also become friends with Ashton. He tells her they shouldn't be friends but they both seem to have a hard time staying away from each other. Livie ends up having sex with Ashton and telling him her feelings. It seems like he feels the same way until his girlfriend walks in. Livie is heartbroken and goes back home to Miami. Ashton has tons of secrets he was keeping from Livie. In the end, Kasey gets Livie to got back to school and finish the year out. Ashton meets up with Livie and tells her everything. They end up together. There is a lot of other things and interaction between the characters.

I normally don't like love triangle. I always feel bad that one character is going to get hurt but in this book I didn't mind it. I could tell Ashton and Livie were meant to be together right from the beginning. Ashton makes Livie be her age and feel alive while Connor was the opposite. I loved Livie's journey through this book. She really grew up and found herself, her true self. Not someone she thought her parents would want her to be and be proud of. She found her own way.

Mine by Katy Evans

Mine is a sequel to Real. It takes places 2 months after Real ended. I liked this book. It continued Brooke and Remy's love story. I was very excited for this book. I waited for what seemed like forever to get my greedy little hands on it but it was sort of a let down. I was expecting so much more from this book and it was just okay. It still had the sex, romance and drama but I was waiting for some big thing or twist to happen and it never did.

Remy is super sexy. The way the author describes him, I can almost picture him. He is yummy. I love how he loves Brooke so fierce. I liked how he is protective and licks her. The licking thing he did to Brooke, I thought was sweet. He is definitely an Alpha male. If I ever meet anyone like Remy, I would be scared, speechless and probably a little intimidated.

Brooke annoyed me in this book. She whines way too much for an adult. I didn't realized how much she whined and complained about things. She is too much inside her head. She over thinks everything. She lets her insecurities get in the way. I can understand why she is insecure, her man is a god and every woman wanted him. However, Remy wanted her and told her that constantly, but for some reason she still had doubts. 

Mine picks up 2 months after Real and its almost time for the Underground fighting season to start. Remy is still madly in love with Brooke. He needs her like he needs air to breathe. Brooke finds out Remy had other girls when the were broken up in Real and is devastated. She has a hard time getting over it although they were broken up and Remy could do whatever he wanted. Brooke gets bitten by some Scorpions that were a present from Scorpion, Remy's enemy. Brooke also finds out she is pregnant but she almost miscarries. Remy wants to keep Brooke and the baby safe and makes her go home to get rest until after the first trimester. Brooke worries and misses Remy. Remy misses Brooke. Brooke deals with her family disapproving of her being pregnant. Her sister is dumb and goes back to Scorpion because she is getting blackmailed by him. Remy fights his mood disorder. There is some other not important stuff that happens. At the end, Brooke and Remy get married and they have their baby.

I liked Remy. I think he is a beast. He's the only reason why I read this book. I loved him in Real and this book. He is also the only reason I was so excited for this book. Other than him, this book is okay. I was annoyed with Brooke, the repeat of words, the over professing of love and the whining. The author uses the same words over and over again hundreds of times in the book. Brooke wanted Remy. She needed Remy. He was hers over and over. I could skip a paragraph and I would pick up exactly on the same thing I was trying to skip.

What I am...

I am reading Mine by Katy Evans. I am so excited for this book. It feels like I waited forever for to read it.

Scars and Songs by Christine Zolendz

Scars and Songs is just like the Fall From Grace and Saving Grace except it's in Shane's point of view. I like the overall book. I like getting into Shane's head and founding out what he was thinking. But, it was almost exactly like the previous 2 books so it was like I was reading the same thing all over again. When I read a book, I always wonder what the guy or other main character is doing at the same time as the character I am reading about and this book told me. However, this book can be read as a stand alone.

Scars and Songs made me fall in love with Shane a little more. In the previous 2 books, you could tell he had feelings for Grace but being able to read how he really felt about her and wanted her, it just makes everything he did make sense. I think this book was one of the best male point of view stories I have read in a long time.

I liked reading all my favorite parts through Shane's eyes. Scars and Songs was very enjoyable and added something to the whole Mad World Series.

Saving Grace by Christine Zolendz

Saving Grace was nice a perfect conclusion to Fall From Grace. Shane and Grace finally got together at the end and let their feeling be known after some misunderstandings on both their parts. They still argued and bickered but what 2 people who love each other doesn't do that. Shane in Saving Grace seemed like he grew up a little bit. He wasn't such an asshole or man whore. He acted more mature. Grace was a little annoying and whining. She should of just talked to Shane instead of running from him.

There really isn't much communication between Shane and Grace. I think if they actually talked more than they stared at each other, their problems would have been solved a lot sooner. They were either, starring at each other, fighting or kissing. Saving Grace was still suspenseful. But again what irritated me was how long it took Shane and Grace to get together. They finally put their feelings out there but things kept getting in their way. It took 300 pages for them to finally get together and then the book ends. The build up was done in Fall From Grace, I shouldn't of had to read the build up between them again.

Saving Grace picks up where Fall From Grace left off. Grace's body is still in the hospital and her soul is left wondering around. It's in a limbo state. Grace can see everything that is going on in the hospital. Grace eventually wakes up and learns that she has been in a medical induce coma for 4 weeks. Shane isn't by her side and no one is telling her where he is. She thinks he is dead. Grace gets discharged from the hospital and goes into a self loathing period for a couple of days where all she does is drink to feel numb and passes out. Lea yells at her countless times to wake up and start living her life. She wants her best friends back.

Some detectives question her about what happen to her at the cabin and she learns that Shane is in jail her supposedly attacking her. She makes up a story because what really happen at the cabin will get her sent to a crazy hospital. She tells them Shane didn't hurt her, he saved her. She has to repeat her story a dozen times to a dozen different people. Afterwards, Lea decides it will be a good idea to go out to the bar. Grace ends up leaving with Ethan one of Shane's friends. The next morning, Shane who just got release from jail catches her as she leaves Ethan's room. They argue over it. Shane acts jealous and mean towards Grace for about 2 minutes until Grace gets sick of his attitude and tells him what really happen. Shane makes it known he wants her and only her.

Grace keeps getting visits from fallen angels that want her soul and she looses a crazy amount of time after one in particular visits her, Gabriel. He tells her that she is his and is she doesn't come with him, he will hurt everyone she cares about. Grace and Shane go through a couple more problems and their friends make it difficult for them to actually be together. At the end, Shane finally tells Grace who he really is. He the boy that took her first innocent kiss over 2000 thousand years ago and sent them to the hell their soul lives in. Gabriel tries to kill them but they survive and sends he away. Grace and Shane get their happy ever after. They're both human now and get to live their last life together.

Overall I really loved the characters, the dialogue and chemistry between Shane and Grace. I also loved how the Fall From Grace series is a little different than some books. I had a lot of expectations for Saving Grace and it didn't really live up to any of them. It was a repetitive storyline almost like Fall From Grace's storyline.

Fall From Grace by Christine Zolendz

Fall From Grace grabs you from the first page and gets better with every page. It has awesome one liners and a kick ass, strong female lead. It's light hearted and un-put-downable or it was in my case. It's all things, witty, funny, delightful, sweet and heart melting. The author knew what she was doing. The story seemed like any other love story but half way through there is a twist and it's really a paranormal romance. It is hinted throughout the book that something was different about Grace. I hated the cliffhanger at the end the most.

It was very irritating that everyone thought Grace was the most beautiful girl ever. Every guy n the book was saying Grace, you are so beautiful in so many words. Tucker, a guy she sorts of dates or giving a chance to, told her she was beautiful or called her beautiful in every sentence he spoke to her. Grace was beautiful, I got that from the first few hundred times some guy told her. I didn't need to be reminded constantly.

The beginning of Fall From Grace starts off with Grace having to deal with the death of her brother. She decides to go back home to her best friend Lea to start living her life again. On her first night back, Lea drags her out to a bar to hear a band play. That's where she meets Shane, who is the lead singer of the band Mad World. He's tall, tattooed and a rock god. Grace instantly feels drawn to him despite his man whoring ways, his panty dropping smile, I can get any girl I want personality and no girl ever tells him no attitude. There are girls that are constantly throwing themselves at Shane and Grace uses that to her advantage to show him she isn't fazed by him.

Grace tells Shane she doesn't want to be another notch on his bedpost so he should just treat her like one of the guys because they're never gonna to happen. Lea also tells Shane, Grace isn't interested in him. He isn't her type, to not go there with Grace. However, Lea knows Grace's secret. She has been searching for someone her whole life. She doesn't need Shane as a distraction.

Grace gets attacked and Shane saves her. To show her gratitude, she decides to join the band. One of the previous members got hurt and can't perform anymore, Grace wants to help Shane. Shane and Grace start hanging out that mostly consist of them running a crazy amount of miles in Central Park, flirting or performing on stage for the band. Though, every time it ends with one of them getting mad at the other person. Shane also recites romantic quotes to Grace a lot. Grace gets attacked again. She almost dies in a fire, but Shane saves her again. To get away from everything that is happening in the city, everyone decides to take a trip out of town. Before they leave, Grace meets Blake, Tucker's cousin. She thinks he's the one she has been searching for. Shane and Grace get stuck in a snow storm on the way to the cabin and he finally tells her how he feels. They get into a huge argument about it. Grace gets attacked by Blake once they do finally make it to Tucker's house. The book ends with Grace lying in a hospital bed.

What bothered me the most about the book was that Grace clearly had feeling for Shane. She would flirt with him and get jealous of other girls that would hang all over him. She wouldn't tell him how she felt. Shane clearly had feelings for Grace. He would get mad at guys who hit on her, he was protective of her, was always watching her and constantly wanted to be around her but he too wouldn't tell Grace how he felt. He would just tell her stuff that made it seem like all he wanted from her was sex. It annoys me when the author won't get the couple together sooner and you read the whole book and it's not until the last chapter until they tell each other their feelings. I like the build up, the flirting and bickering with the characters but 400 pages of build up is over kill. You knew something was gonna happen between Grace and Shane but it took too long for it to happen. In this book it never happen. Shane lets his feeling be known and Grace shuts him down.

On to book 2 Saving Grace...

This Man Confessed by Jodi Ellen Malpas

I was thrilled when This Man Confessed finally came out. I had waited what seemed like forever to get my hands on it. It wasn't my favorite like the first two in the series but it brought closure to characters and answered a lot of questions that where previously left unanswered. Ava and Jesse got their happy ending. The characters are still crazy and hilarious. There was still banter between Ava and Jesse that I love so very much. Jesse still adores Ava and wants her like she is his last breath of air. Ava finally gets her independence she tried to get throughout the whole series. She also learn to accept Jesse the way he is and doesn't challenge him as much as she previous did.

This book was a beautiful ending to great love story. I was also so sad to see the series end. I was so caught up in the characters and story that I was completely devastated when the book was over. I was trying to pace my self with only reading a couple of chapters a night so the book would last me a week or longer but I couldn't put it down and was finished within days. I am still having Jesse withdrawals. This book was strangely addicting to me. It was heartbreaking and full of love. It went beyond the love story of Jesse and Ava and got into the very soul of Jesse. I think the first 2 books, This Man and Beneath This Man was the story of how they met and fell in love and this book was a look into what makes Jesse so unreasonable crazy when it comes to Ava. It was sort of his story more than a continuation of their story.

In this book Jesse and Ava get married. It's a month after Beneath This Man ended. Jesse tramples Ava's mom every chance he gets. I secretly think he gets a kick out of trampling people. Ava ends up pregnant and doesn't tell Jesse. She leaves Jesse because he purposely wanted her pregnant and was hiding her birth control pills. She feels betrayed that they didn't talk about it and he made the decision for her. She lies to Jesse about being pregnant. She thinks about aborting the baby and not telling Jesse. Ava gets back with Jesse but still doesn't tell him about the baby. Sarah who hates Ava in the previous 2 books confides in Ava and Ava forgives her. Her talk with Sarah makes her realize she needs to tell Jesse about the baby. He becomes super crazy once she does tells him she's pregnant. Ava gets ran off the road by some crazy person that wants her gone. They learn they're having twins in which Jesse tells Ava he was a twin. They go on they're honeymoon. More of Jesse's past is brought to light and we were introduced to Jesse's parents, who he wants nothing to do with.

There is tons of sex but it doesn't really go into detail like the first 2 books. Ava still is challenging and Jesse is still unreasonable. Ava's brother figures out what Jesse really does. He also asks Jesse for money. Ava quits her job and learns how rich they really are. Ava gets threading letters and dead flowers from some crazy person that wants her to end things with Jesse. Jesse's ex-wife from when he was a teenager(shocker) comes out as the person that drugged Ava in Beneath This Man and tried to run her off the road earlier in the book. She tries to hurt Ava but ends up hurting Jesse. Jesse goes into a coma. When he comes out he starts to mend his relationship with his parents. He decides to sell the Manor. They have a second wedding like the way they should of had it the first time. The end jumps ahead 5 years and it's the twins 5 birthday party. It's also from Jesse P.O.V which was refreshing. It was nice to hear from his thoughts and to read what really goes on in that head of his.

I enjoyed this author very much. I liked her character development and the british words she used. I looked forward to more books from her.

Some Books...

Some books I have read over the past year. Some were great and some were not so great. Some I wanted to end quickly and others I never want to finish let alone put down. Some of the books were alike just the names, locations and a couple of details were different.

Beneath This Man by Jodi Ellen Malpas

This author really knows how to write. This book was funny, sweet and romantic just like the first book in the series. It was a captivating and beautiful love story of two people trying to find their way back to each other after some truths were revealed and nearly destroyed their relationship. I was so transfixed into Jesse and Ava's world that I felt a little lost when the book was over. Jesse and Ava's relationship is beyond intense in this book. Jesse is too much alpha male and I fell more head over heels in love with him in the book. Ava is still all over the place and is constantly keeping Jesse on his toes with her challenging ways. Ava is strong and tries to be independent and doesn't like when Jesse tries to manage her life. Jesse is still crazy in love or just maybe crazy but we do get to see his easy going self a little in this

This book has all the Jesse's style fucks, his trampling ways and devotion to Ava. There is still bantering, tons of wild sex, arguing and Ava not listening to Jesse. Their relationship really evolves in this book. I love how the author wrote Ava and Jesse's characters. I can feel the love they have for each other. Jesse adores Ava to the extent that he drives himself crazy sometimes. He would do anything and everything for her. He was her happy and his always. He wants to spends all the time with her and doesn't want to share her with anyone else. What girl doesn't want to be loved like that?

This Man ended with Jesse and Ava both heartbroken and the relationship over. Beneath This Man picks up five days after Ava walked out on Jesse. She has a miserable week and just wants to go home to sleep. She hasn't heard nor seen Jesse since she left him drunk at his penthouse. Jesse's friends haven't heard or seen him either and they're worried about him. They convince Ava to accompany them to check on Jesse since they can't get pass security. When they get there, Jesse has drank himself to almost a coma. His friends help Ava clean up and Ava decides to stay to watch over Jesse. Jesse wakes up with a horrible hangover and has to deal with some stuff at the Manor but wants Ava to stay so they can talk. His way of talking involves sex. It's the only way he can show Ava how he truly feels about her. They make up, of course and start on the road to mend their relationship.

Ava want Jesse to ease up some with his controlling behavior and open up a little more. Jesse wants to keep Ava save at all cost. Ava still has to deal with all the women that want Jesse which pisses her off sometimes. Jesse also has been hiding Ava's birth control pills and Ava schemes to get Jesse to fess up about it which he doesn't. Some of Jesse's past is revealed. Ava and Jesse deal with Jesse's drinking. He tells her he will never drink again as long as he has her. But then someone drugs Ava and it sends Jesse over the edge. He does keep his promise about not drinking but he finds others ways to deal with him almost losing her. He gets Sarah, the girl Ava can not stand and most definitely wants to take Jesse from Ava to whip him. Yup whip. To get Jesse back and show him how much it hurts her, Ava gets some random guy to whip her. Jesse meets Ava's family. Jesse is still super over protective over Ava but he is so afraid of losing her, it scares him. Jesse also asks Ava to marry him twice which she says yes twice. I guess one proposal wasn't enough for them. This book ends on a happy note but does leave it opening for book 3.

There was also a reoccurring question Ava constantly asked Jesse in This Man and she continues to ask him in this book too. She just wants to know how old he is but he always lies to her. She figures out a way to get him to talk (the truth fuck) and it works for her but has no so great repercussions. I was sad when she finally gets his real age out of him. I liked when she was constantly asking him how old he was. That along with other things that happen gave the book a little something other books don't have. This book just doesn't compare to other books I have read. Questions from book 1 are answered but more questions are asked that are left unanswered.

I especially like the bickering between Ava and Jesse. However, I would have never let Jesse pull me out of bed at 6 in the morning to go run 14 miles. No way.
