Burying Water (Burying Water #1) by K.A. Tucker

I love Burying Water. It wasn't like the other K.A. Tucker's books I have read (which is all of them) but it was still great. I think that's what I loved most about it. It was different. I loved the dual POVs. It felt like I was reading 2 different love stories but the same one at the same time. Jesse's POV is told from the past and Water is from the present. The past is leading up to the present and the big twist. I think the book deals with the old saying "If two people are meant to be together, they will find a way to be together." That is very true with this book.

Water wakes up in the hospital with no idea who she is or how she got there. She had no memory at all. I don't know how I would feel about that. While I was reading the book I kept thinking I would like to wake up with no memory and get to start over but then again not remember anything might drive me crazy. Water freaks out about the no memory thing for about a minute and then picks up her life or what's left of it and starts over. Water is very strong. Not everyone can do what she did in this book. Thankfully, she had a great doctor and her wonderful family to help her out. She starts her life again and falls for the boy next door. She feels like she knows him but isn't sure. Something about him feels familiar.

The boy next door, also known as Jesse, knew Water in her past life. He is the one that saved her. He tries to stay away from her for her safety but that doesn't work out. He wants her too much. He loved her before the memory lost and he loves her now. Before Water lost her memory they were planning a life together and as much as Jesse wants Water to get her memory back, he also thinks it's better that she doesn't. Jesse is hot, tattooed and a mechanic. I love a guy that knows cars and Jesse is that guy. I also loved his family especially his sister. (I hope she gets her own book.)

I loved Jesse and Water's love story. I loved how the book was written and told in both their POVs. There was a lot that happen in this book, way too much for me to write about. Everyone should give this book a chance. It is so much better than the synopsis.

Currently Reading....

I am currently reading the Divergent Trilogy by Veronica Roth. I know it's a series that came out years ago and it's for young adult but I don't really care. I watched the movie Divergent and it got me interested in the books. The books are of course better than the movies, that's how it always is, but I still liked the movie and I am excited about the Insurgent movie coming out soon. I like the person they got to play Tobias better than the Tobias in the book. 

I know the books are for young adult but I felt the characters are way more mature than the teenagers they are suppose to be. I don't think I could have done any of the things they were doing when I was 16. I kept picturing them as people in their 20s because some of the things they were dealing with and going through didn't feel like something a kid would know how to deal with. I think maybe watching the movie before I actually read the books is what made me think they were older too. Originally when I watched the movie I though Tris was 18 and Tobias was in his early 20s and I was blown away when I read the books and found out they were way younger.

I didn't like how the series ended. I don't like Tris dying. Every time I read a book I would there to be a happy ending and in this case I don't think that was possible. Tris and Tobias should of got their happy ending that the deserved after going through so much. I don't like that some of the characters they should have been killed off early in the series got to live and be happy. It didn't seem fair to me.

Deviant (Deviant #1) by Jaimie Roberts

Wtf did I just read? This book was horrible or at least I thought it was horrible. It had potential but there was too much of everything. It was too long, some of the shit that was in this book could have been left out. There was too much repetitiveness. I didn't need to be explained the same thing over and over again a hundred times. Even though the book had too much of everything there was still something missing to make this book a good book. It needed something or anything really would have been good.

Tyler was a weird name for a girl by the way. I am all for girls having boys names but I thought I was reading a book about two guys at first. Tyler has someone clearly stalking her and I mean really stalking. He comes into her house, cleans up the mess she makes, organizes her house the way he likes, turns her toilet paper roll around, moves her car and she constantly feels like someone is watching her when she is out in public. All this has been happening for the past 3 years and Tyler doesn't see anything wrong with it. In fact, she starts leaving notes and cookies around her house for him. WTH?  She's calm as can be and someone is watching her and stalking her. She doesn't tell anybody or the police what's happening. It's no big deal to her. I would be going to the police and moving out She tries to reason with herself that he doesn't want to hurt or kill her or he would have already done it. She even calls him her stranger and eventually tells a kid about him likes it's no big deal. The kid doesn't think there is anything wrong with what's going on either. She eventually starts having sex with him. And it's not the nice kind. The sex is crazy hot. I think everyone in this book was crazy.

Dean or Tyler's stranger is super sexy in a mysterious way. He's secretive and dangerous and I seriously wanted a piece of him beside the whole stalking thing. That creep me out. Dean is out for revenge against Tyler but I think he went the wrong way about it. He stalks her, but she isn't afraid. He has sex with her, but she craves more. She likes everything he does to her. I didn't see why he even stalked her when she wasn't afraid of him. Ian was crazy and Tyler lead him on by always letting him feel her up. She kept saying they were friends but Ian wanted more. You could tell.

I think my favorite part of the whole book was the ending. It was a cliffhanger but at the same time the characters got what they deserved. Ian is dead, he was a scumbag and paid for it. Tyler faked her death and left town to get away from Dean. Dean was left alone which is what he wanted in the beginning. He wanted to destroy Tyler but he ended up destroying himself.

Raze by Tillie Cole

I had my concerns about Raze. I was not sure if I should give Raze a chance since I didn't like the other books by Tillie Cole. I hated The Sweet Home Series but I am so glad that I read Raze. I liked Raze. It was different in a sense than the normal books I read. It was slow at the beginning and I wasn't really into the story all that much but it got better as the book went on. Raze is a dark love story with rape, violence and death. I loved the dark side. It was a bit predictable. I knew Raze was going to be the long lost Luka right from the beginning. It was kind of foreshadowing that point.

Raze was in a prison of some sorts where he was taught to fight until the other person is dead. He was raped, tortured and injected with drugs. He has killed over 600 men in his fights. He breaks out and sets a plan for revenge in motion to get back at the person who put him in the prison. He has no memory of his past except the name of the person and the city of where that person is located. Raze was dark, scary, protective and super sexy. I loved how he felt the need to protect Kisa even though he didn't remember her.

Kisa was a strong woman that let a man degrade her - her fiance.  I don't see how she could stay with someone that beat her, cheated on her and was so controlling. I kept thinking through the whole book if she would tell her dad what was happening, he would deal with her fiance. He dad didn't seem like the type of man that would want his daughter with that type of man. Kisa felt something for Raze the moment she saw him. She knew deep down he was the boy that she fell in love with and he was taken away from her.

Kisa and Raze grew up together and fell madly in love with each other. One day something horrible happen and Raze was taken away from her and she was told he died. She never believed he was gone or he did what he was accused of. After Raze was gone, his friend, Alik moved in on her. He was a horrible, crazy person. They were set to be married and her to become his perfect obedient wife.  After 12 years of Raze being in prison and away from Kisa he goes back to Brooklyn to destroy Alik. Once he is there he starts having all these members from his past. Kisa and Raze find there way back to each other. I liked how if love is meant to be then the people will find a way back to each other somehow. And that was the case for Kisa and Raze. Their love conquer everything.

I like the book and Raze and Kisa's love story. Alik was a little crazy and I was glad he died. I am so glad I gave this book a chance. It ended up being a great book. The only problem I had was with the Epilogue. It seemed too story for my liking. I would have liked to see what happen to Kisa and Raze years later rather than a couple of months after they realized who Raze really is.
