I'm a mother and I love every single moment of it. It is the best gift anyone could ever ask for and I thank God for her everyday. I'm also a wife and of course I'm the better half.. ha! No really, I am! I'm also a huge reader.. especially YA books! I go to sleep every night with a book in my hands. I especially love when a book can completely immerse me into its world and I lose all that is going on around me. I love reading and the feeling it gives me and wanted to share with others through my blog.

Smashwords book reviews by janae vanderwoude

  • Enigma on June 09, 2012

    I received this eBook from the lovely author herself and thank her for allowing me to read her book in return for an honest review. I enjoyed this book and really like the idea of the plot. The plot was new and different but the characters fell a little flat for me. Kate got on my nerves most of the time. She didn't have much of a backbone and let Jack push her around a lot. I liked Jack in the beginning but then he seemed to always be apologizing for something and he was kind of just a dirt bag. He didn't treat Kate the way she should have been treated and I'm sure she stayed with him in the beginning because of the curse. And then Sebastian comes back to town.. I really liked Sebastion and loved his dark hair, motorcycle riding, quiet and shy attitude. He's my kind of guy! Loved him and wanted more of Seb! He could sing to me all he wants! Yumm! ;) The book had me wanting to read more and want to know what happened with them. It kept me interested. At times I felt the book dragged a bit and a little too much description that I found myself scanning to get through it. Things felt repeated at times as well but I did still like this book. I give this book 3/5 stars. I like this book so go buy a copy! You don't want to miss out!
  • Creating Fate on June 26, 2012

    I received this book from Smashwords and it took me a while to sit down actually read it. I am so glad I finally did this book was really good. Chloe is strong, tough and hard headed goddess. She is one of the three fates alongside her sisters. She is sent by her father Zeus down to earth to find her sisters but what she soon faces could either break her heart or be with the man she is fated to be with. This book is a whirlwind of romance, love, and hot schmexy passion. The tension between these two is pretty intense. In the beginning I was a bit shocked at how fast Dane and Chloe started to fall for each other. It was a little bit too much too soon and made it a kinda hard to relate to. But in the end it worked well. I wish there was some more bones to the story and some more background info so I could truly understand Chloe's heartbreak and her loss. Dane was a fun hot character and really liked him for Chloe. They made a good match. But I definitely recommend this short novella for any one looking for a great romantic easy read. I give it 3 stars!
