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!
