I’m Sorry I’ve Been Gone So Long

Aggrrhh!! Okay, so basically I have been reading absolutely loads of books in the month that I have been absent but I’ve also been mega busy so I haven’t actually had the time to sit down and think about all the words that have been flying into my head. I’m literally updating this after my shift at work just so that I can let you guys know that I am still in existence 😉 and that I will be back shortly (fingers crossed). When I do start uploading again, I’m hoping it will be regularly and not sporadic as it has been recently. I have plans to write sit down and my reviews in one go and post them at different times so that I always have something up to date on my blog (and not just random updates). I already have plans for September but they are the type that will allow me to take some time to write out several reviews at once and fingers crossed read some of the books I’m waiting on to be released in August. I already have some books lined up to read but I’m unfortunately in one of those ruts that mean I can’t force myself to sit down read them (mainly because they aren’t what I’m in the mood for).  So I hope you don’t mind my random updates and stuff, I just felt the need to let you know that I was still here; just on an involuntary hiatus (somehow I think I used that wrong but its late and I’m tired so forgive me).

Peace out bitches!

Player – Aubrey Irons

Player – Aubrey Irons

It’s been a while but, I’m back with a new review! This one is actually a recent read of mine (only a few days old), and I would just like to say that, in my opinion Irons can write a damn good sex scene. However the actual plot of ‘Player’ is one I have come across a million times before (that’s not to say I didn’t enjoy it), it reminded me of ‘Baller – Vi Keeland’ and also ‘Bad Boy’s Baby – Sosie Frost’, which I must say are almost identical in story line (I’ll do a comparison of the later).

When I picked up ‘Player’ I didn’t expect much from it, seen as I’d pretty much guessed the story already but, I did find myself enjoying it. Perhaps I was just in the right mood/state of mind? Anyway the clichĂ© story just did it for me. I found the Hero (Austin) amusing but a dick all the same and the heroine (Natalie) was interesting to say the least. Honestly, I found the h to kind of annoying at times; I understood her reasons for certain things and some of her actions but at times I just wanted to shake a bitch, then later the h goes off and fucks shit up again (which we expected, right?). We get the typical moment when the H comes to the rescue and then everything is hunky-dory and that’s where it ends. But I’m getting ahead of myself, so lets go back to the beginning.

When we first meet the h she doesn’t seem like all that much however, we see her personality grow as the books goes on (still not happy with her mother) but, I have to say that I still think she was inherently lacking something that would have made me get attached to her. The H however, was easy to like and not at all annoying, he seemed to develop a hell of a lot more than the h and I enjoyed reading his POV. Another problem for me was how the h dealt with her mother (the bitch that she was, although we see a slight change towards the end), in my opinion I think she should have had a blow out with her mother but, that s neither here nor there. We also meet the sister of the h who is actually quite likeable and seems to have a ‘stronger’ personality than the h.

The sex scenes held the passion I have come to expect from Irons and I didn’t find myself skipping over them as sometimes happens with them as if an author isn’t careful they often become repetitive and dull.  As much as it looks live I have pulled ‘Player’ apart I did actually enjoy it, it won’t be one of the books I go back and read when the mood strikes but it is enjoyable and I didn’t find it hard to get through.

Peace out bitches!

Motherfucking Update

Alright, so I’m gonna say that you guys maybe aren’t interested in the random updates I post but idgaf so I’m a post them anyway! It’s only a short one this time; I’ve done my initial read over of a.e.fisher’s next novel and now we’re getting it ready to be sent off to be published. Which is good news!

The bad news update would have to be that my search for my next job is going shit. Honestly it’s soul crushing looking for a new better job and not having any luck. Also I’ve been dragged into waiting at a workshop all day for a delivery…guess it’s good that I don’t have a life then.

Peace out bitches!

Killing Stalking…

Killing Stalking 
Okay, so I guess I’m changing it up a little by reviewing this but here we go!

So I’ve seen this manga pop up all overy my social media for a long ass time now and my best friend has evenot bugged me to read it. So I did. Now if you’ve got a weak stomach and perhaps are sensitive I wouldn’t recommend this to you. This thriller is twisted in so many wayears that I have officially lost count; it’seems one of those times that you think to yourself what the fuck am I reading and yourself etc you can’t make yourself put it down. I can honestly say that I don’t regret reading this and I’m now waiting rather impatiently for the next season to be released.

Many people have said the exact same thing about it; I wanted to put it down and just be done with it the but I just couldn’t make myself stop reading! I would have to agree with this because I read the whole thing in one sitting without any breaks.

Now I’m not an avid manga reader however I have read enough to say that I can spot a good one (subject to your opinion) when I see it and this was one of thone times. I do believe that this will be a love it to or hate it to kinda thing (think marmite) and I guess we’Lloyd just have to see where it goes. I’ll keep you guys updated as much as I can!

Peace out bitches!

I did it again….

Okay so I sort of it did it again guys! I got caught up in the goings on of life and forgot to update my blog. Then when I did try to post to here it wouldn’t work, so here I am attempting to write another motherfu*king apology post. Anyway I’ll give you a general update; I now have a tablet to post from so I can write postsomething where ever I go and upload them as soon as I have Internet access (tbf having unlimited WiFi like a certain hunter *talkin bout you Mr Winchester* would be greatly appreciated). I do need to go and pick up some more storage for it though because it doesn’t have as much as I would possibly like. Oh! Another small piece of perhaps interesting information; I’ll see beach proofreading A.E. Fisher’s next book so keep an eye out for short sneak peak verdict.

Well that’s my short update complete and I’ll see you guys soon!

Peace out bitches!

Take Me Home – Lorelie Brown

Take Me Home – Lorelie Brown

This was another one of those times when I ended up with my head in my hands asking myself; why? Just why? Honestly this book had so much potential and yet I feel like Brown decided to skip all the good bits that make the reader attached to the characters and their relationship and go straight to them being a couple and the climax hitting and then leaving you feeling let down and quite sad really.  I thought I had found a gem when I found ‘Take me home’ however it was again just a piece of shiny twisted metal. I was infinitely disappointed in the lack of development of the two heroines; however, I was happy that this wasn’t lesbian porn hidden under the guise of a lesbian romance. Although classified as romance it was severely lacking and there didn’t seem to be that ‘spark’ that leads the reader into being invested in the characters; I found myself almost not caring if they even ended up together. The most enjoyment I got from ‘Take me home’ was the interaction between the family at the start of the novel which provoked quite a few laughs from me and reminded me of some aspects of my own family life. Would I recommend this book? Eh, probably not but I also wouldn’t blame someone for actually enjoying the book.

Peace out bitches!
