Darker than the first two but I loved getting into Cain and Charlie's head and reading their stories

I wanted to read Four Seconds to Lose because I loved the other books in the series by Tucker and couldn't wait to see who and how she brought the next characters to life and also hoping for another glimpse at how Kasie is doing, since...

Hot, exciting and fast paced, left me craving more.

I wanted to read this one because I loved the prequel and if you've read my blog long, you know I am a long time fan of Jennifer's. Her men are steamy, her main characters easy to relate to, it has exactly my kind of humor,...

Fun sequel with characters I love.

I wanted to read Split Second because I read and loved Pivot Point. The concept of the effects that one simple choice can make and epic consequences in the future, and then Addie having to chose between sometimes two very hard choices for what the future...

Swoony, fell for the characters.

I wanted to read Bitter Sweet Love because first off, I love Jennifer's writting. She never fails to entertain, make me forget the real world, and make me swoon. So of course, a new series, and one about gargoyles, something I have never read about before,...

Fast paced and demanded my attention while reading.

I wanted to read Panic because I enjoyed Lauren Oliver's other contemporary and even though this one sounds different, I liked the direction it was going in. The idea of this big game and stunts, and where these two characters could face such things and possibly...

Powerful, emotional, and I related with Alexi and loved everything about Bodee.

I wanted to read Faking Normal because I am drawn to anything about self-harm. I used to be a cutter and still get the urges to sometimes. But books like this aren't really a trigger for me, just like I can read about suicide and depression....
