Wicked – Jennifer L. Armentrout

Wicked-AmazonGRSW

Rating: 3 Stars
Type: NA
Steamy: J. Lynn style

Okay here is the thing: Ms Armentrout (JLA) writes YA that are just fantastic. Sometimes she uses her alter ego J. Lynn and writes NA that are … well … not my cup of tea. It never seized to amaze me how someone could write such great YAs and such awful not so great NAs. Now she wrote a NA as JLA. Sounds confusing? Colour me confused when I read the book. It was like watching the good and the evil twin fighting each other (unfortunately the evil twin had the upper hand most of the time). Here comes the review that contains no spoilers (well the book is predictable enough anyway):

Rule’s Property – Lynda Chance

Rating: 3 stars
Type: NA
Steamy: Sizzling hot

This book reading experience was so depressing. I was so happy in the beginning, just to have my hopes shattered. I have tried Lynda Chance before and was not too happy with her idea of an alpha male (see here). Therefore imagine my surprise when I found out that I actually liked this book. It was rrrreeeaaallly good and I would have given the book solid 5 stars if there hadn’t been the “slap-incident” that ruined everything. This review contains minor spoilers:

Rating: 3 Stars
Type: Historical Romance
Steamy: Yes

Talking about not likeable characters earlier: This is the review to Arrow. A book most of us were eagerly awaiting because it featured Gregor McGregor (he is hot, he is allowed to have a stupid name). A book most of us thought might be better than the last instalments. A book that shattered my hopes but at least it has a nice cover now (it didn’t even have that at the beginning). Here is my review that contains spoilers (albeit minimal ones):

Nero (Made Men) – Sarah Brianne

Nero

Rating: 3 Stars
Type: NA/YA
Steamy: Yes
Language: Strong

Well this book was neither bad, nor good. It was also not average. I just had major issues with it. Don’t get me wrong the book was well written, the characters well developed (at some point although a bit unbelievable but hey it’s a romance novel not a science book) and the plot was intriguing, however, what put me off was the display of sheer violence and the underlining message that apparently violence is best met with more violence. To sum up I had some moral issues with the book but apart from that readable.
