Blogtour Review: Carrier (The Line #1) – Anne Tibbets

*I received a free ARC of Carrier from Xpresso Booktours in exchange of an honest review* Welcome to my stop on the Carrier blogtour! I have several things to share with you, my review, some of my favorite quotes, and an international giveaway. My Carrier Review: The Carrier is set in a dark, mysterious futuristic world, and the dystopian society is very creepy. The story is relevant, and it points out what is not going so well in our current society as well. Naya is a very strong female protagonist, she has been through hell, working from a very young age, then sold to The Line once she hit puberty, she has been forced to be a prostitute for the […]

Review: Rock Chick (Rock Chick #1) – Kristen Ashley

Review: Rock Chick (Rock Chick #1) – Kristen Ashley

Rock Chick is an outrageously funny tale! I haven’t had so much fun reading a book in ages 😀 Indy is a true rock chick, she is funny, sweet, competent and loyal, and I loved everything about her. She has been in love with Lee, her best friend Ally’s older brother, her whole life. When things finally go the way she’s always wanted, she is a little confused at first. Especially because she’s in the middle of something that doesn’t really have anything to do with her. Rock Chick is well written, with round characters I can’t wait to read more about, and both friendship, suspense and love are the main ingredients of the story. And even if the story […]

Review: Sinful Seduction (Red Stone Security #8) – Katie Reus

Review: The Undead Pool (The Hollows #12) – Kim Harrison

Review: The Undead Pool (The Hollows #12) – Kim Harrison

The Undead Pool is a great story, in which Rachel has even more magic than usual, and where she might have to stay far away from the demons while she takes care of a huge problem in Cincinnati and The Hollows. It all starts when magic misfires happen throughout Cincinnati, and Rachel happens to be where things go wrong twice in the same day. The Undead Pool starts about three months after the ending of Ever After, so it seems things have been slowing down for her a little bit, but that is not at all the case anymore once this story gets going. Then, it appears that the master vampires aren’t waking up at night, and there’s a lot […]

#COYER Review: Sweet Revenge (Sin Brothers #2) – Rebecca Zanetti

#COYER Review: Sweet Revenge (Sin Brothers #2) – Rebecca Zanetti

*I received a free ARC of Sweet Revenge from Forever – Grand Central Publishing via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Sweet Revenge is an amazing romance / thriller / suspense novel. There is a little bit of everything, there is romance, of course, a serial killer, a man who thought he’d never find love nor freedom, and a woman who is trying to make amends for her past. The only reason why I didn’t give Sweet Revenge five stars is that I guessed who a culprit was very early on – however, this did not make the story less interesting. Matt has been searching for the surgeon for five years, he knows he needs to find her quickly […]

Review: All Our Yesterdays – Cristin Terrill

Review: All Our Yesterdays – Cristin Terrill

*I received a free ARC of All Our Yesterdays from Disney Book Group via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* All Our Yesterdays is a quite exciting science fiction / time travel thriller about Em and Finn, and the lengths they will go to in order to survive, and to change the past – or is that the future? In some ways, the story is quite confusing, as it goes away from the pat of many other time travel stories and the flash-backs aren’t always easy to get once there is a shift in the storyline. At the beginning, All Our Yesterday completely grabbed me, and I was delighted to read a time travel story that was so intricate. […]

Review: Escaping Reality (The Secret Life of Amy Bensen #1) – Lisa Renee Jones

*I received a free ARC of Escaping Reality from Julie Patra Publishing via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* I am completely blown away by Escaping Reality! A red-hot thriller/suspense novel with a great main character in Amy.

At the airport, she finds the right locker, with a small carry-on, new ID and an address in Denver.
