  • A Song After Dark on May 28, 2013
    (no rating)
    Everyone meet Norman, a young seventeen year old, who has no social life, no friends, and no girls talk to him. His parent's are controlling, strict, and wont buy him a car either, so he rides the bus. Any back talk and his father takes a belt to him. Then meet Zach, he has everything. Zach has the life, get's any girl, and he can stay out all night and his parent's wont care. But Zach has a darkness in him that comes out slowly. As Norman leans on Zach to mold him into a cool person who can talk to girls, Zach's trying to mold Norman into something dark. Just goes to show you that I believe evil comes from within. This was a great fast paced read, and I thought the ending was great but a slight disappoint to how it ended.
  • College Collage on May 28, 2013

    Nick is a real satirical character who views college in a negative light. He promotes athiesm and other beliefs in a staunchy way. I really liked him better when he actual fell in love with Adara, the muslim girl, and showed an actual heart. The book read like it was the author telling stories about what happened to him in college. Which the conclusion basically said the same. One chapter was about the partying and then he'd follow up with a chapter about how the college disappointed him, and the classes were fake and professors overpaid zealout. It's not really a light read, and I actually couldn't put it down towards the middle. The real climax happens at the end, when relationships and friends don't mix well. I liked the book but it read like a nonfiction encounter. The supreme attitude of the writer annoyed the hell out of me, like he was better than everyone
  • The Deception Dance on May 28, 2013

    Raven goes on a trip to Europe with her sister Linnie and her sisters college roommate Chauncey. I think its ironic the main characters name is Raven and the mysterious Andras is a demon who thinks Raven us a reincarnate of someone he loved and lost. Of course he just had to collect a million souls to get her back. Then you have the good guys who are trying to save Raven but they arent really sure what she needs to know. If they'd have clued us in a little earlier I may have liked the book better. You get into the story and your really not sure who to believe. I think it was a good read. Plenty of action but some of the time line was a bit confusing.

    I checked my inbox and discovered this read I won from librarything, and I have to tell you I glanced at it even though I have a mountain of books to be read before this one. I got hooked and couldn't stop reading, and loved it. It's about a girl who works for the police diving team, they search for lost ones in water. Well her history is that she was a spotter for her father when he free dove, and he died. She had been distracted because she had been dumped the night before. Ten years ahead, her brother over mortgages a business and is threatened to lose it. She goes back to help him save it by doing the dives for him since he broke his leg. Piper see's the man who dumped her the day before her father died. Ryan westlake is the man she still compares all men to, and between the animosity and the anger we still see the attraction. They have dangerous chemistry and it was great to see it come together. Thanks librarything and this author for a great read!

    Thanks so much for a free book in exchange for a review. I begged for this book screams read me. Not to mention the story line is along the line of books I love to read. No disappointment here. I loved it...I devoured it. I recommend to anyone who loves mafia books with dubious consent, graphic violence, and sex. Dark romance seems to be the flavor lately, and this book follows the synopsis perfectly. I enjoyed reading this book, and I definitely recommend it. Overall entertainment at its best Five stars!
