Smashwords book reviews by Tamara Fair

  • Deadly Obsession (Deadly Vices, Book 1) on Jan. 25, 2012

    Instead of summarizing this book again, I'll tell you what makes it a great read! 1. Deadly Obsession has an abundance of amazing characters. The main characters Nic and Lauren both have a lot going on in their lives. Lauren lost her husband due to the war, had to work hard to support her son, and she has "body issues" just like the rest of us. Nic seems to be this "playboy" but we learn that he actually is a good man carrying around a lot of unnecessary baggage, as well as dealing with a psycho-stalker. Kaden and Remi are hilarious, Lauren's son-Jason is adorable, and the list goes on. 2. The romance between Lauren and Nic was believable (and hot!). Sometimes in cases of "instant attraction" or when one person is a celebrity I feel the need to say "BS, their relationship would never work or it would never happen that way!" Not the case here! 3. Loved the parts with Nic's stalker, I was so eager to find out who the stalker was! 4. I love when the author provides the reader with enough clues to figure out who the killer is-Ms. Cayne did this!! If you enjoy romantic suspense, I'd recommend this book. Remi's book will be published soon. But I'm hoping for a book with Rachel, Nic's sister!!
  • Dream Catcher on Feb. 07, 2012

    Wow! I really liked this short story! The story begins with Breena waking up with no idea of who she is, where she's from, or how she got there-she only knows that her first name is Breena. Lucky for her, moments after she walks up, Ciaran walks by and is willing to give her a place to stay and help her try to figure out her origins. And...That's all I'm telling, because I hate spoilers but it's really good! For a short story this has a very well-developed plot, it doesn't feel rushed. I normally hate changing POVs, but in this story I loved it! There is an awesome paranormal element. The ending left me wanting more!! I would have loved Dream Catcher as a full-length novel, I was bummed to see it end.
  • All the Wrong Reasons on Feb. 07, 2012

    I read this based on comparisons to Beautiful Disaster. I don't really think that its's a good/fair comparison because the two books are not alike. All the Wrong Reasons tells the story of Irelyn, a girl whose mother disappointed her wealthy parents. As a result Irelyn's grandparents pay for her and her cousin's education and see to it that they are making the "right" connections. Irelyn goes out to a local bar and meets Lucas (he's hot, Australian, and in a band). They have a one night stand and...well I won't tell you the whole story but it's really good!
  • The Very Thought of Him on Feb. 10, 2012

    I've just started reading erotica, but really liked this short story. I was expecting something totally different based on the summary and was surprised (in a good way) when I started reading. Although the story is short, Dara is a very well developed character. The writing is very descriptive and obviously hot!! The ending leaves you eager for the next installment of the story (huge cliffhanger). I would definitely recommend this story to people who enjoy erotica.
  • Five on April 09, 2012

    It's very hard to enjoy a book or connect with it if you do not like the main character. I don't like Rayla, and for me that made this just an okay read. However, I believe that this book can be enjoyed by fans of YA or those with an interest in faeries. If you enjoyed The Iron King, you may enjoy Five. But back to Rayla...I didn't understand Rayla and Cassie's friendship. The two are supposedly best friends but I don't believe it. Then, I don't understand why a girl who has as much going on in her life as Rayla would possibly think that it was a good time to date. I think that if Five had been more about the four fae lords actively pursuing her, it would have been a more interesting story. Speaking of the fae lords, to me they seemed more annoying than anything. I would have liked those parts to be more intense. Also, when everyone was like, "Why aren't you marked Rayla?" I hated that she was never thought of her scar, it was my first thought! In the end, I decided to give it two stars based on my dislike of Rayla and the fact that there seemed to be a little to much going on. I'm very grateful that I was given the opportunity to review Five, but it just wasn't my cup of tea...
