I’ll start with characterization and work my way from there.

Book Rating:7.7 Characters: Chloe Dillard, Jean-Paul Dupre Paris Cravings (Paris & Pastry Book 1) First published: January 31st 2014Rating: 7.74 stars GoodReads:Paris Cravings Review: MY REVIEW (4 /5 stars): I fell in love with the city of Paris. I see why it is my son’s favorite city in the world —its lights, sweets, sights, and mystical romance. This author created the perfect recipe for this book by putting in the ingredients of romance, a tour of Paris, nice teenagers, a bakery, and unending bends and surprises.

Book Rating:7.5 Characters: Hitte (Hitte Book 1) First published: February 28th 2015Rating: 7.48 stars GoodReads:Hitte Review: Het is al een heeeele tijd geleden dat ik dit boek las. Ik vond het verháál supermooi, evenals de schrijfstijl, maar ik vond Daan gewoon echt vreselijk met zijn bipolaire gedrag – ook gewoon als ik zijn ‘verleden’ meereken. Personages en hun ontwikkelingen tellen voor mij nu eenmaal enorm zwaar mee.

Book Rating:7.5 Characters: Misguided Heart (Misguided Book 1) First published: February 21st 2013Rating: 7.48 stars GoodReads:Misguided Heart Review: I really am sorry to say I’d give it 1.5 stars as is. I don’t know if the author had an editor or beta readers, if she didn’t she could really use some. Sadly, there is potential here for a good story, but there were just too many storyline errors for me. It was all over the place is the best way I can describe it. The characters come off as being extremely immature considering they are suppose to be in top spots in the corporate world. Things within the story just didn’t add up. I felt like the

Mia Caruso grew up under the roof of a tyrant. Her father was an enforcer for the DeLuca crime family who ruled his home with the same brutality that his job required, her mother was the silent trophy he’d always wanted and Mia was only ever in the way. She’d endured the abuse for years, her only solace was the hope that one day she would be free from his iron fists. Just shy of her eighteenth birthday and four months away from a fresh start at college, he showed up and turned her world upside down. Carlo DeLuca was at the top of his game, master of his own universe, he ran the most successful organized crime syndicate on the west coast.

It was a very good book, but at the same time it was very different. Neely is a young girl who is graduating and troubled by strange dreams. She disappears the night of her graduation and after that she is a completely different person.

Book Rating:8 Characters: Love in Rewind (Love In Rewind Book 1) First published: May 16th 2014Rating: 8.04 stars GoodReads:Love in Rewind Review: This is a story about an 18 year old Emily who meets and quickly falls in love with a 30 year old real estate tycoon, Louis. Within two days, Louis becomes obsessed with her, tells her he loves her, asks her to move in with him, seduces her and buys her a car. I found the story to be not only unbelievable but a little predatory. If all you are looking for is hot sex scenes, you will probably like this book. On the other hand, if you need good plot development and like a slow burn for character d

Book Rating:7.7 Characters: Because of You (Because Of You Book 1) First published: November 3rd 2013Rating: 7.7 stars GoodReads:Because of You Review: Because of You is one of the first books I read from Sam Mariano. It drew me in, and left me wanting more. I had the worst feeling when it ended. I’ve been obsessed with this book and have been begging for a sequel. This book is like the ultimate angsty book read.
