Smashwords book reviews by Tess Watson

  • Angel Evolution on Jan. 22, 2012

    I get a little nervous when I get books from authors for review. Sometimes they aren't that great. Boy was I pleasantly surprised with this one! I didn't just like it...I Loved it, and I can't wait until I get to read the sequel. Why I loved it you ask? I was pretty much hooked after the first chapter. The writing flowed throughout the book. The characters were described in such a hilarious way it really grabbed my attention from the beginning. Oh and then Gabriel showed up and uh yah HOT. The great thing about the first part of the book is that I couldn't figure out if I was suppose to trust Gabriel or if he really was deceiving me *ahem* oh I meant if he really was deceiving Taylor. Does Gabriel really have feelings for Taylor or is he just using her to get ahead? Are the demons or the angels the bad guys? This book had me wondering the whole time. I didn't guess the next move before the author revealed the truth, which was very refreshing and kept me reading. This book was definitely a different take on angel vs. demons, and the world that Estes created had me entranced.
  • Survival, a YA Paranormal Romance (The Guardians of Vesturon Series, Book #1) on Feb. 03, 2012

    I really enjoyed this read! I did think it was a little rocky close to the beginning. The conversations between Maddie and her best friend Cat were a little un-natural at times, but everything else I loved! The Prologue had me hooked from the start, so it was easy to ignore any bumpiness in the writing. Maddie really has gone through it ALL! I mean just after reading the summary you can see that Maddie is going to have to through Hell and back again, but then in my opinion, I think it was worth it for the Hotty she got out of it! SWOON! Her Rescuer! Gahhh He is protective, sweet, and pretty masochistic. He also has the most beautiful green eyes and wavy black hair! ahhh! *fanning myself I absolutely LOVE Maddie! She is a heroine for sure who can pretty much endure anything. She is strong willed and independent. She also drips in sarcasm at times and I love that. She always keeps her wits about her, but at the same time follows her heart. Most of the book is very well written. I never felt lost except sometimes I lost myself in the story! I also really loved how Hargrove was able to write the same scenes in both Maggie and her Rescuers point of view and kept it interesting. This book is definitely worth the read and right now it is FREE so go grab it!

  • Cycles on Feb. 29, 2012

    One word to describe this book-Beautiful. Beautiful writing, beautiful plot, and beautiful characters! Cycles is very different from my normal read. It has that Sci Fi type of aspect to it, but it is very much a mystery read. The writing in this book is exquisite! It made me immersed in the world Brown created, and her writing captivated me. I really felt I was right there along with Sam and Renee trying to figure out the mysteries of Renee's past! Throughout the book there are these journal entries written by a woman named Helen and the whole time I was trying to figure out how that related to Renee. I loved how it wasn't until very close to the end that I found out what was really going on. Brown always gave me enough information to keep me interested but not enough to where I got bored because I had figured it out! She also created wonderfully complex characters in Renee and Sam. They were the social outcastes, but they had each other which was enough. There might be a hint of romance in there too. Overall I really loved this book, and I will definitely be looking out for Spaces, the sequel to Cycles!
