Review: Leveled

Leveled Leveled by Jay Crownover
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It was a good story, but too short for it to have a fully developed beginning.
I felt like the falling in love thing happened too fast and we didn't get to see the buildup of the relationship, it kind of just happened. But it was according to the size of the story, and things were well deal beyond that detail, in the end there were no lose ends in the characters's relationship, and I love when that happens.
I loved reading about some of the characters of The Marked Man series, and I think it was an awesome start to The Saints of Denver series.

The story was sexy, cute, and short, and so worth it! I really can't wait to see what Jay Crownover will have in store for us with Built!

It's a short review, because well, it was short XD

Review: Forever with You

Forever with You Forever with You by Jennifer L. Armentrout
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved it. I still feel the same thing when I read Jen's books, and that's an awesome feeling. I feel inside the story so much. I always relate to the characters in some kind of way. And I must say that after reading all of her books these feelings haven't change one bit.
I can't really make an objective opinion or critique about the book. I just love the story, I love how Steph was represented and I love that the book make me smile and also tear up a little. I know that when I read one of Jen's books I'm gonna love it, it's just the way it is, I love her writing and she's my favorite author. So really, there's nothing more to add, she can do wrong in my book.

Review: Hawaiian Heartbreak

Hawaiian Heartbreak Hawaiian Heartbreak by Libby Cole
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.

This book really surprised me, I thought it was going to be an ok book, but I wasn't expecting to like it this much. This books is a light fun reading, perfect for a beach day, for the weekend or those days when you're not having such a good time. At least it was to me. I have one complaint though, ok, maybe two and I must WARN you...
1. It's short and it leaves you wanting more, because there's some cliffhanger, which was awesome by the way.
2. An the other warning is that Damn! While I was reading it all I wanted was to be on a beach, white sand blue waters, some fruity drink with an umbrella and handsome boy by my side fanning me... LOL, dreams, dreams!

I loved all the things Hawaii, the author certainly knew her facts, it definitely made me want to go there and enjoy all the wonderful places and food (PINEAPPLE!!!)
The romance was fun, I liked the male lead and also the female, I think we need more insight and a little bit more deep thoughts in both of them for the next one, that's what I'd like at least. The sex was hot and I'm really looking forward to read the next books in the series. I wish they're coming out soon.

I think this author is a promising one, I'm gonna be watching you Libby! Besides, I'd really like to hear more about New Zealand :)

Review: Worth It

Worth It Worth It by Linda Kage
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow, that was incredible!

I think this might be the best book on the series so far. It was written amazingly. I loved that the story was written between past and present and I must admit though that it kind of annoyed me at one point when I was really into the story and then the chapter ended and we had to go back to the past instead of continuing where the chapter left off, but to be honest I think that added something more to the book and the fact that the chapter that tell us the past was always related to what was happening in the chapter from the present was kind of awesome. The story itself was quite complex, I loved the characters what they went through, how they dealt with things and how they healed. At some point when I was finishing the book I might have thought things happened really quick but then I counted the chapters from the past and it was really a story that went through 6 years, so it wasn't quick at all.

I was so glad to get to know these characters, at first I was doubtful since they were new characters to the series and I was afraid we wouldn't see much of the other characters we met before, but they were there doing they're thing and being a family as always and I loved it.
I think the author outdid herself with this one, it was kind of different, it was better, no, actually it was the best and it surprise me and it seriously left very high expectations to how the next book is going to be. I really can't wait to see Asher Hart's story specially with that epilogue!

Amazing book totally recommended to you all, but please start with the beginning of the series 'Price of a Kiss' so you get to know all the other characters and the relationship between them, it's really cool.

Review: Just a Little Kiss by Renita Pizzitola

Just a Little Kiss Just a Little Kiss by Renita Pizzitola
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loveeeeed it!

I really liked the book, the romance, how it plays, the chemistry between the characters, the few messed up things that happen and the cute little things too. It's a really good story, entertaining and fun, a light read but a realistic one, something you can relate to, it's about two normal people trying to live normal life, with all that encompasses, with no unnecessary drama. Sometimes these "normal" kind of books are underestimated and we got some stories that have so much going on and they get so repetitive! So it's really nice to have something like this. And I LOVED IT!

I really don't have much to say, but I'm telling you this:
I have this little notebook and pen on my night stand, next to my kindle so I can take notes on it about the books I'm reading to make my reviews later and remember things. If I don't use that notebook it's usually because it's a book from an author I know and love and don't have to say anything about it or because I absolutely loved the book and there's nothing to add. In the particular case of this book I only added 2 things:

-I feel really connected to Felicity the leading female, and her fear of failure and to try out new things, I totally get it, I am that way too. Also, I see that she guards herself a lot and damn that is so me and I'm not proud of it but I relate to it, to her anxiety, to her over-thinking things, so that makes this book super special to me.

- I really love the friendship between Felicity and Isla, I love how Isla encourages Felicity to improve, to be better, to get out of her comfort zone and she reassures Felicity about the possibility about a better future. She's the best BFF!

I'd like to add that this series has really grown on me with each book, this is probably my favorite of them and I think I see a growth in the author, or maybe it's because I like it more with every new book but whatever it is I really recommend it!

I was giving an e-copy of this book for a honest review.

Review: Paper Hearts by Claire Contreras

My Review: 5 of 5 stars!

"I lost her. No, I didn't lose her. I threw her away. She was my best friend. I was never supposed to fall in love with her. I was careless. She was heartbroken. I was doing fine until she came back into my life and reminded me what love was supposed to feel like. When it's all said and done, she may not want to stay, but this time I'm going to do everything in my power to not let her go"
 Paper Hearts releases on September 9th.
Preorder on Amazon ➺
Preorder on iBooks ➺
Preorder on Kobo ➺

I finished the book a few hours ago and all I can say is that it was everything I hoped it was and more. This is the story of Mia and Jensen, and how after years apart they found each other again after a lot of pain and heartache. The question is Will Mia be able to stay for good or is the past too still too fresh for her?

Let's start at the beginning though... Have you seen Claire's covers? Well I think the cover of this book was the first clue of how amazing it was gonna be...

Claire has a very special way of writing, I think her writing is complex and to be honest at the first few pages of the book it was hard for me to concentrate and follow her, not because it wasn't good or difficult but because it required my whole attention and my mind was all over the place for some reason. And besides, English is not my first language and I'm still trying to get better at it everyday. But then I started appreciating this writing, the complexity and beyond that the meaning of the book. I can say that this story was a Romance story, in the category of New Adult. As you must know, if you've read my blog or previous reviews, those are my favorite kinds of books, but this one, this one I loved it because it was much more than that. 
The story was awesome, it was good, it had my heart sweating and beating and all worked up, my eyes filled with tears more than once even though they didn't fell. And sometimes I found myself smiling at the screen on my e-reader and sighing happily, but what really conquered me and made me gave the book 5 stars were the deep meanings on it, the deep thoughts, the lessons that I could take from it. I even wrote them on a notebook while reading, so here they are.

- It has really deep thoughts on life, love and society and the only way I can explain this right now without making this too long is by writing this quotes from Mia.

"We were all confused together, and ultimately, all lost together, despite our ages, races, genders and anything else that set us apart" 
Mia while people watching and taking pictures and analysing people, society and life. I loved this quote because it matches what I think on these subjects and it reached to me.

"Some might argue I never fell out of him, but I didn't think love was about falling in or out; it was about staying in. And we didn't" 
I loved this realisation of Mia while thinking of her relationship of Jensen, I never thought about it that way and I like that kind of thinking even though I know it might not be always that way.

- I felt this book was a journey, for the characters-specially Mia. A journey of forgiveness, to the one who she felt did her wrong and to herself. It's about recognizing you're stuck with something, a situation, a person and that something it's not letting you be happy and live your life to the fullest. It's a journey of moving on with your resentment and sadness and also a tale of second chances.

- It's also about loving someone so much, maybe too much, yet still knowing what and who you're with or without them and loving your self the same way.

- It showed me that sometimes all you need is someone to keep fighting for you when you can't, someone who doesn't give up on you, on them, even if you did, but that eventually it's you, and only you, the one who has to fight for yourself, for your love and the life you want to live.

So after all these items... How could I have not love the book? It was impossible not to, it was this awesome!

P.S: And all those Game of Thrones references and mentions... I totally loved that!!!

August's BOTM: Favorite Books of the Month

So I skipped July's BOTM... But you know what's funny? I had it on a Draft and totally forgot to published it.... Silly Me!

Anyway, here's my Favorite read books of August, I read a lot more, as you can see on the bottom of my page, but here are my faves and the ones I thought deserve my mention:

1. That Baby by Jillian Dodd (That Series)
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This was actually gonna go on July's FOTM because I read the first books of THAT SERIES that month, but since I forgot to post it I'm gonna leave it here now.

I thought these book were beautiful. Really cute story, with lots of funny moments, and a few tough ones too. I can honestly say that they made me laugh, made me sob (notice I say sob, not cry), and made me smile and fall in love with the characters in a really deep way. I think the leading female is wonderful, she has humour and wit and I just really love her. It was a perfect story to read at night before going to bed, on the beach or wherever, while wishing for better and happier things in life. The first book is That Boy where the female characters goes through life with two best friends, both male, we see how she grows up with them and then one of them turnes out to be THE ONE for her.Next in the series is That Wedding, it follows right where That Boy left off and shows how the characters go through the planning of the wedding, we see their doubt, their love, their fights, their frustrations, their insecurities and dealing with things that weren't dealt in the previous book. It's equally beautiful and leads to the last book released on August 10th called That Baby, here we see the process of pregnancy and how relationships change and develop now that they're married and expecting a child, the preparation and the fears that comes with that. Also there's the delivery of said child and there might be some drama that ends up beautifully. I really reccommend this book to you guys, it's a funny and pretty story about love, life and family :)

Get the books here!

2. The Fill-in Boyfriend by Kasie West

The Fill-In Boyfriend
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

That was such a great reading. I was done in one sitting, it just felt too short and I wish there was more, I want to know more about Bec and see how things progress between Gia and Hayden :) it was awesome! A young story, with lots of chemistry and some deep thoughts there too, a little bit of comedy and since it's a YA book there's not steamy or smut and when I read it I was in need of a break of the Adult books. I think this book left room to explore more of the characters since they were gonna head to college and stuff and it left open doors to explore the secondary characters too. I really recommend it if you're in need of something light, fun and good.

3. Better When He's Brave by Jay Crownover

4. Devious Minds by K.F. Germaine

With Me in Seattle series by Kristen Proby

This is a series of 8 books plus a novella. I rated them from 3 to 5 stars, there were things that annoyed me, there were things that I loved, there were characters that charmed me and others that I didn't care at all for them. However what it makes it worth of posting here is that I love the fact that one of the biggest aspects of the series besides love and romance is that is a series about friendship and family, and I not mean the type of family build because of blood ties, but because of bonds that are beyond genetics. This series shows a family built on trust, on friendship, on love and that makes it a hell of a strong one, one I hope I can have one day along with my biological one. So I recommend it to all of you who loves books about family and friendship and romance. Also there's smut and erotic scenes which makes it really hot. ;)

Book Review: BETTER WHEN HE'S BRAVE by Jay Crownover

***** STARS - I loved it!

Wow, that was a good one!

Here's a little quote for you guys that really got to me:

"I think it's important to make most of what you have. Before you know it, all of it can be gone and then all you're left with is regret" - Reeve

The first thing that I loved about this book was the beginning. Great prologue, it hook me up immediately and it made me fear an crave, at the same time, what was about to come. It was mysterious and full of action and it gave hints about what was going to happen but it also left me in a cliffhanger that only made me want to skip the entire book so I could get some answers. (I didn't, of course)

The book was, in my opinion, very well written. There were lots of inner monologue and that usually bores me, but it was written so right that it didn't happen this time, the inner monologue told a story in itself beyond the interactions with other characters. This allowed me to get to know the leading characters very deeply and understand their complexity and boy do they were complex. Because this story, the story of The Point is not a simple story, it's not light and no fairy tale, it's tough stuff, there's no black and white here, and I think that it's what makes it so good for me.

Book Release & REVIEW: WHERE WE BELONG by J. Daniels

Title: Where We Belong
Series: Alabama Summer #4
Author: J. Daniels
 Release Date: August 21, 2015


From NY Times and USA Today bestselling author, J. Daniels, an Alabama Summer series novella.

Ben and Mia Kelly can’t seem to catch a break.

Grueling night shift and opposing schedules have left the passionate couple geared up and ready for some much needed alone time. There’s only one thing standing in their way.


With two curious boys who have mastered the art of cock-blocking roaming the house, Ben and Mia, sexually frustrated beyond reason, quickly resort to surprise sexcapades and naughty little trysts whenever and however they can get them.

Who said anything about keeping things legal?

Assume the position. Things are about to heat up in the south.

Warning: This book is recommended for readers over the age of 18 due to strong language and explicit sexual content.

**** 4 STARS

I can actually say I liked this book much more than the first one, maybe because I had already fell in love with the characters and I got to explore much more of them. Here we get to see their married life and how they deal with parenthood and also with being a couple. I think the events played in the book were pretty real and they're something that happens to a lot of married couples with children and everything was described with humour and also with love and urgency too. 
My favourite thing about this series, and specially about Where I Belong and Where We Belong is Nolan, I love that kid so freaking much. I adore Nolan's relationship with Mia, since their first moment together. And this is personal, but I love that Mia is a real mom to him, 'cause I would have love that my mom's ex-husband would have been a real dad to me and put me first before his needs and not compete with me for my mom's love. Mia is not like that at all and I love how giving she is. 
Also, I really liked that sex here was presented as an issue. That they struggle to have a healthy sexual life now that they have kids and are married. It's very real and somehow at the same time it's not all about the sex just for the sake of it, but it's because they love and miss each other and sex is their way of connecting in the most deep way and show each other that love. 
I still think I would have like more character development, specially in Mia's case, I don't know about her dreams as an individual and not only just as a mom and married woman,  but I guess it's what it is. I still liked the book a lot! :)

Book Review: DEVIOUS MINDS by K.F. Germaine

Devious Minds
 by K.F. Germaine
My rating: 4.5 ***** of 5 stars 

Devious Minds

"A New Adult Comedy 
When Sydney Porter transfers to Northern University, she’s ready to put her past behind her. Landing a job on campus as an irreverent radio personality, she uses the anonymity to air all the campus dirty laundry—earning the infamous Sunday Lane more than a few enemies. But her true passion is spinning records, even if Drunk Earl is her biggest fan. 
Sydney’s junior year kicks off with the promise to be amazing. Or at least it does until Gray Peters, hotshot quarterback, unexpectedly reenters the scene. His presence threatens to destroy everything she has going, as well as resurrecting a night Sydney never wants to remember or repeat. She’d run away like a coward, but this time she's determined to stay and fight. 
A twisted battle of wit and trickery ensues, with one common goal—vengeance. Sydney and Gray set out to make each other miserable. But misery loves company, and soon, walls are destroyed and truths are revealed that could change their future forever. "
*** Contains mature situations and language ***

I think this books was awesome, it was hilarious and smart and it made me smile and laugh a lot, and even get a little bit emotional.
My first thought on the book were a little bit confusing though. I thought we had a strong lead female, with a lot of character and complexity, but a little too vengeful? That thing of the beginning was a little bit too much, but then I remembered this is a comedy and it was everything ok. Also, Sydney's fun as hell and I like her way of thinking.
Gray was totally loveable, smart and hot and a little bit wicked when needed to be. The chemistry between the two lead characters was amazing and I was really digging it.
I need to mention the relationship between Syd and her brother, Jack. It was a complex one, yet I loved it. They love each other and to hear the stories of them as children made me smile and maybe my eyes were shining a bit too much here.
I think the ending was perfect and I wish this was a series 'cause I'd love to know more about Jack, Fernando an Chance, they were super fun characters.
So this was a great book, a light reading but a smart one too, with witty characters and fun love story.

So I'm gonna start a new section on this blog. I don't like to review books I don't like, usually if I finish reading it I liked it enough. However, I just finished a book that it seriously needs to be discussed, so I'm gonna review it, 'cause I need to talk about it.


Tattoo Thief by Heidi Joy Tretheway  ** 1.8 Stars

"22-year-old Beryl doesn't know why Gavin Slater trashed his penthouse, abandoned his dog and fled the country. But as his house sitter, she must pick up the pieces for the front man of the white-hot rock band Tattoo Thief. When ultra-responsible Beryl confronts the reckless rock star, she wants to know more than just what to do with his mess. Why is he running? What’s he searching for? And is he responsible for the death of his muse? New York newbie Beryl must find her footing in Gavin’s crazy world of the ultra-wealthy to discover her own direction and what can bring him back. Steamy, sassy and tender, Tattoo Thief is a story of breaking from a comfort zone to find a second chance."

This book started so great, but it was such a disappointment. Zero conflict resolution, or even an approach of it. The lead female that I thought might be so authentic at first turned out to be just a copy of somebody else, I have a lot to say, but be warned there's going to be SPOILERS!!!
I need to talk about stuff that without the details of the events in the book it's just not gonna be the same. So here I go.

Everything was fine, this was going to be a 4 stars book. There were some things that might have been a little annoying but it was a good read anyway. That lasted only 'till the first 50% of the book. And then it all went slowly to hell... And I'm gonna do a list here of everything that made book a disappointment to me.

1. She falls in love with the guy incredibly fast, with some superficial chat and e-mail exchange. I mean it wasn't all superficial, but certainly not to fall in love THAT fast.
2. When he seems to return some of the same feelings and they meet she kisses him only after a few minutes of talk, and that's ok, that's great for her to be so brave, but... When he puts some breaks on the make out session, she seems so disappointed and afraid and thinks there was some kind of relationship already that will not continue... (This annoy me and I didn't know why)
3. Then, the guy stood her up, and she was mad with fair reason. But while having an argument about it he asks if she trusts him and she doesn't answer inmediately, so the guy seems dissapointed and she answers him on the spot that she does trust him but he hurt her and needs to explain. (I got a feeling she wasn't sure if she trusted him but told him she did to not hurt him or dissapoint him, I'm really tired of write that word. And I mean, how can she trust him completely, they shared some secrets and stuff bu THEY DON'T REALLY KNOW EACH EATHER THIS IS THE SECOND TIME THE MEET FACE TO FACE)
4. Oh and here comes the biggest issue. The thing that bothered me through most of the book but it wasn't really an issue 'till this happened: She, Baryl (that's her name) starts wearing Gavin (That's him) death ex/muse's clothes, after he asked her she get rids of them. I could have understand this, it was expensive and perfect clothes and If I had been just a worker on the guy's house I would have keep them too, after washing them and certainly would have gotten rid of the dead girls UNDERWEAR!!!!!!! Her underwear!!! this is just so wrong. But the worst is when she wears the clothes for their first date, the date when Gavin stood her up. It turned out he did show up at the place, he just couldn't get out of the car 'cause she saw her wearing his ex/muse's clothes! So he couldn't deal with it, it was a trigger for him. Well, Gavin tells her this, but she doesn't approach it, she just tells him she went out with other guy after she was stood up... And then, when everything's solve, and the main 'conflict' was solved, it was just drama btw, they go to a T.V show (Jimmy Fallon's) and she goes with the dead girl's clothes again and she says she has HIS BLESSING to wear them... WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK!!!

It seems to me that Baryl is just trying to be the replacement of Gavin's muse. And when he's aks if he found a new one he says it's no that, he says that that it's not healthy and it's addictive and bla, bla bla. But then he asks her to be the new model for the next cover of their new album (the band) and she accepts. Do you know who was the model for the two previous albums of the band? IT WAS GAVIN'S DEAD EX GIRLFRIEND/MUSE. And Baryl keeps wearing her clothes. And I was done, I was fucking done. And I say it with respect. This is not against the author, it's my attempt to make a constructive criticism to a book that had so much potential, it was a great story, the preview was awesome and it captivate me, but I read it and nothing was right. This things I just mentioned could have perfectly been an issue in the book, and used as a conflict, as part of the relationship, as means to an end. They could have grown together as people and a couple by overcoming this issues. The book just ended and this things were there like they were normal, but let me tell you this, this are issues that are not normal in a healthy relationship and that eventually would explode and made everyone insecure with themselves, that's what I see in this couple's future. Baryl beeing insecure of herself after realizing that she's the exact same copy of Lulu, Gavin's ex/muse. She could have been a new muse of her own, with her own identity, but she was just a copy. The clothes were a massive No for me, they could have discussed it, make an agreement, approach these subjects and not let them float in the book like normal. I think if that was approached, it would have been an awesome book and I would have given it at least a 4 stars review. Sadly, it was not. :(

BOOK RELEASE: He Found Me Series by Whitney Barbetti

It's here! Release Day of 'He Found Me' Series. Are you excited? I'm sure as hell are.Are you planning on getting the book? I am and I hope it's a good one. Enjoy!!


He Found Me: 

When I was seventeen, I disappeared. I walked out the door of my apartment with a backpack and never looked back. I left the life of Cora Mitchell behind, seeking freedom from my real-life nightmare. But my freedom came with a cost. I lived a fictitious life for the next six years, never letting anyone close enough to see underneath the facade that was Andra Walker. I was content with my simple little life. Until I met Julian. And the moment I started allowing myself to open up, allowing someone to see through the superficial, was the very same moment the Monster from my past would return to find me.
He Saved Me: 

I’ve come to understand that I’ll always find her. She’s my north star, my sense of direction. In her, I’ve found my home. She tells me I saved her. But the truth is, she saved me.

But nothing good can ever last. Andra’s keeping secrets. She’s holding something back. I’m trying, desperately, to anchor her. To let me in, to let me help.

But will all my efforts end up with a ghost of a girl I love?

I'm used to disappearing. Vanishing into thin air, without a trace of who I've been or where I've gone.

But it’s so much harder to do with a broken heart and no hope for a happy ending. Sometimes the only people who can put all the pieces of us back together are the ones we least expect to. That's what Julian did for me.

Julian found me. But now, all Six wants is to keep me locked up, away from the world, away from the Monster. I can't live like that. It's not living at all. Because I still have unfinished business.

And I'm going to make sure the Monster gets what’s coming to him

I like nachos and champagne and clean sheets. I spend far too much time at Starbucks. I wrote a couple books

Layla has a new problem, too. A Lilin—the deadliest of demons—has been unleashed, wreaking havoc on those around her…including her best friend. To keep Sam from a fate much, much worse than death, Layla must strike a deal with the enemy while saving her city—and her race—from destruction.
Torn between two worlds and two different boys, Layla has no certainties, least of all survival, especially when an old bargain comes back to haunt them all. But sometimes, when secrets are everywhere and the truth seems unknowable, you have to listen to your heart, pick a side—and then fight like hell… 
Algunos amores duran hasta tu último aliento.Cada decisión tiene sus consecuencias -pero Layla (17) debe enfrentar decisiones más duras que otros. Luz u oscuridad. El malvadadamente sexy demonio Roth o Zayne, el estupendo y protector guardián que  Layla nunca pensó podía ser de ella. Lo más duro de todo, Layla tiene que decidir en qué parte de ella confiar. Layla tiene un nuevo problema. Un Lilin -el más peligroso de los demonios- ha sido soltado, causando estragos a quienes la rodean... Incluyendo su mejor amigo. Para evitar que Sam tenga un destino peor que la muerte, Layla debe hacer un trato con el enemigo y salvar su ciudad -y su raza- de la destrucción. Dividida entre dos mundos y dos distintos chicos, Layla no tiene certezas, la menor de todas la sobrevivencia, especialmente cuando un viejo trato vuelve a perseguirlos a todos. Pero a veces, cuando los secretos están en todas partes y la verdad parece desconocida, tienes que escuchar a tu corazón, elegir un bando - y pelear como el infierno... 

So the end is here. It kinda reminds me of the song of The Doors 'The End'... And I might have been humming that song instead of Paradise City throughout the whole book. 
Well, some of you who know me (if someone is reading this) might have notice Jennifer Armentrout is one of my favourites authors. So I'm just gonna cut the bullshit and say: 


Her books swallow me from beginning to end and I just Can't. Stop, Reading. If you haven't read any of her books yet I recommend to you to start now, there's a lot to choose. YA paranormal, YA contemporary, NA and Adult. I love them all. 
From her YA novels, my favorites are the Lux Series. But this series comes really close. I think this series shows a maturity in Jennifer's writing. Everything is darker, but with that I don't mean that only bad or tragic things happen. But there's this relationship between good and evil that is really wonderful to see. Where nothing is just black and white, and everything is grey, and other colors too. I must say that I really liked the conclusion of this story, but I think I would have liked to see more, something spectacular, I guess I feel like there's a lot more to tell. Like I can feel there might some more adventures coming in the future. But as far as everyone knows this was the end of the series. So I'm kind of dissapointed in that. 
I think everything was just too perfect though, and I guess I'm a glutton for punishement because I would have liked it more with some crying there. But it was perfectly written, perfectly developed. There was anticipation, excitement, love, lust and friendship, but I feel like something was missing. I didn't sweat with it, nor cry, so I guess is that and like I said I'm kind of a masochist in my reading. But I did laugh, and smile, a lot. I just would have liked a little more messiness... Not that there wasn't any. 
I just hope we get to see other things of this world someday again. I feel like I need to, and not just because it's just ended, it's because I don't feel the emptiness that a final book in a series usually brings me, and it's bugging me. But I'll let it be.

Well, that's my review, it's not much, I don't analyse things much I just guide my reviews on my feelings, if I like it or not, and boy I did like this, but this was the less exiting book, I guess. But as a series, I loved them and I think it's a must read to everyone who likes some Young Adult Paranormal ;)

El fin está aquí. Me recuerda un poco a la canción de The Doors 'The End'... Estuve tarareando esa canción en lugar de Paradise City durante de todo el libro.
Bueno, algunos de ustedes que me conocen (si alguien está leyendo esto) podría haber notado que Jennifer Armentrout es una de mis autoras favoritas. Así que iré directo al grano y dire:


Sus libros me tragan de principio a fin y yo simplemente No. Puedo. Parar. de Leer. Si no han leído ninguno de sus libros, les recomiendo empezar ahora, hay mucho para elegir. Paranormal YA, YA contemporáneo, NA y Adulto. Me encanta todo.
De sus novelas YA mi favorita es la Serie Lux. Pero esta serie viene en segundo lugar. 
Creo que esta serie muestra una madurez en la escritura de Jennifer. Todo es más oscuro, pero con ese no me refiero a que cosas malas o trágicas sucedan. Pero hay esta relación entre el bien y el mal que es realmente muy refrescante de ver. Donde las cosas no son blanco y negro, sino todo es gris, y de otros colores también. Debo decir que me gustó mucho la conclusión de esta historia, pero creo que me hubiera gustado ver más, algo espectacular, creo que siento como que hay mucho más que contar, puedo sentir que hay más aventuras que podrían venir en el futuro. Pero por lo que todo el mundo sabe que esto era el final de la serie. Así que estoy un poco decepcionado por eso.
Creo que todo era demasiado perfecto, sin embargo, me hubiera gustado más llanto. Pero estaba perfectamente escrito, perfectamente desarrollado. Había expectación, emoción, amor, la lujuria y amistad, pero siento que algo faltaba. No sude con él libro, ni llore, así que supongo que es eso y probablemente soy un poco masoquista en mis lectura. Pero me reí, y sonreí mucho. Sólo me hubiera gustado un poco más de desorden y no sé...
Sólo espero que lleguemos a ver otras cosas de este mundo nuevamente. Siento que lo necesito, y no sólo porque se acaba de terminar, es porque no siento el vacío que un libro final en una serie por lo general me trae y eso  me está molestando. Pero lo dejaré ir...

Bueno, esa es mi opinión, que no es mucha, no me gusta analizar mucho las cosas que acabo de leer, mis comentarios se basan en mis sentimientos, si me gustan o no, y este libro sí que me gusto, pero esto era el libro menos excitante de la serie, supongo . Pero como serie, en general, me encantó y creo que es una lectura obligada para todos los que le gusta la lectura Paranormal para  Adultos Jovenes o Adolescentes. :)

REVIEW: Truth or Beard by Penny Reid

Truth or Beard ***** 4.8 stars.

Primero, tengo que decir que este libro tiene un significado especial para mí, por la forma en que lo conseguí. Penny Reid, la autora, escribio en su facebook un estado contando el ranking de ventas del libro en amazon y preguntando si nos molestaba sus actualizaciones. Yo respondí que no molestaba para nada y la felicitaba, pero le decía que me daba un poco de envidia porque lamentablemente por problemas económicos no había podido comprar el libro, como muchos lo estaban haciendo. En eso, una persona me respondio y me dijo que estaría feliz de regalarme una copia virtual del libro para que la leyera. Fue emocionante y le agradezco infinitamente, lo necesitaba, pues estoy pasando por un momento difícil emocialmente y este regalo no pudo haber llegado en un mejor momento.

First, I have to say that this book has an special meaning to me, for the way I got it. Penny Reid, the author, wrote updates of the sells of this books on his facebook page, and asking if it was annoying that she was stalking herself. I answer it congratulating her and telling her it was awesome but I was just envious 'cause I couldn't buy it due to my money issues. A person reply to me telling me she would be happy to give myself a copy of the book. It was overwhelming and I was so thankful, I wrote her telling her my story, telling her that I needed it specially because I'm going through a lot, emotionally, and this gift couldn't have arrived at a better time. 

En este libro, el primero de la serie de los hermanos Winston, podemos concer la historia de Duane Winstong y Jessica James.  No me molestaré en hacer un resumen del libro, para eso puden revisar en gooodreads o en amazon o la página de la autora de qué se trata. Sólo diré que lo mejor que pueden hacer es primero leer la serie 'Knitting the City' para saber de qué trata todo esto y conocer un poco más de Duane, que ya conocimos en el libro Beauty and the Mustache. 

Lo que sí puedo contarles es que me pareció un libro muy entretnida, liviano e ideal para distraerse, pasar unas buenas vacaciones o despejarse un rato de los problemas de la vida real. Es un libro que tiene harto de comedia pero que no es sólo risas, tiene algo de acción, pequeño, pero algo. Y además, lo que más me gusta de Penny Reid y sus libros que su tipo de escritura no es simple, no es algo fácil o superficial, es de un humor inteligente y adulto. Ideal para chicas en sus 20 y tantos. Sus personajes son siempre sofisticados, en el sentido que tienen una profesión, pero a la vez hay algo más profundo en ellos. No son personajes simples, hay algo más en ellos y las historias son divertidas, pero realistas y muy romántincas. En definitiva, me encantó! Y no puedo esperar para leer los próximos libros de esta entretenida e interesante serie. Además a quién no le gusta un chico con barba, inteligente, con buen humor y muy sexy?

This is the first book of the Winston's brothers series. Here we can see the story about Duane Winston and Jessica James. I won't bother writing you a resume or teaser about the book, for that you can visit goodreads, amazon, or the author's page. I'm just gonna say that the best you can do before reading this series is reading the 'Knitting the City' series, to know about all of this and meet Dueane, who we meet on the book Beauty and the Mustache.

What I tell you is that I think this was a very fun book to read. a great choice for distracting yourself this summer or just relax and forget about your real life problems. It's a book that it has a lot comedy in it, but it's not just laugh, it has a bit of action, even if it's just a little. Besides, what I like the most about Penny Reid's books is her writing, it's not full of easy words or grammar or plot, it's full of intelligence and humour, special for adult's and girls in her 20's. The characters on their books were smart, they were professionals, they were fun, but not quite simple, there was something more, some deep in them. Well, I just loved it! I can't wait to read more books of this series. Besides, who doesn't like a guy with a beard, smart, and sexy as hell?

P.S: BTW, so happy to read that to Jessica's eyes Billy and Ashley looked like twins, I guess their relationship keeps getting better and growing.

P.S. 2: This reading was the best that could happened to me all week. Thanks to the author for this awesome reading.
