Book Reviews

Review Roundup – August 17th – 23rd

Here's everything I read this week.

I want to try something different this week. I’ve somehow managed to let two weeks go without a post – not that I don’t have any in the works – but I’m not in the mood to whip one up right now. So I’m going to list all of the books that I’ve read this week, with the minor reviews I posted on Goodreads. I can’t promise that this will be a thing going forward, but there’s nothing wrong with giving it a shot.

No Ordinary Love by Kenya Wright

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Of all of Kendra’s mob books, I probably liked the work and the story of this one best. I’ve been trying to make my way to The Dragon for a while, and I feel very satisfied with the outcome. I hope she does a sequel

Desired by S.K. Lessly

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


I originally intended to DNF this book, but decided to go back to it. It’s actually a great book. Georgia honestly had the worst luck in family members, and Drake knew enough about that to save her.

Die Without You by Christine Gray

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This book was much better than I thought it would be. Minor grammatical issues, but the story was phenomenal

Ephraim’s Hurt Room by Amarie Avant

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I wondered how this author was going to have this story play out because most of the emotional stuff was out by 50%, but she managed to surprise me. Of the three Amarie Avant books I’ve read, I would absolutely recommend this one.

Tricked Into Marrying A Mob Boss by Justeen Jones

My rating: 1 of 5 stars


I DNFed this one as the dialogue was unnatural and Boris is apparently African American and weirdly from Oklahoma. I didn’t get far enough to find out if this was family name, but, again, the dialogue was too bad for me to bother getting over the mislabeling.

Allegations of Love by Blue Saffire

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


This one was good in that it gave insight into the couples that we’ve already gotten used to. I felt like Jasper and Marie was mostly done in flashback. The surprise (but not surprising) couple was the better reveal.

Slow Burn by Blue Saffire

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


I both liked this book, and felt like it was extra at some points. I feel like Shannon looks like a whole different person, but I loved the insight into the other characters. I did like Shannon and Luca’s relationship. I think the work put in to HAVE a relationship was well worth it.

I’m probably going to start and finish another book before the night is over, and I intend to properly review one or two of these in posts about about the authors’ writing, but I think this might be something I could see myself doing going forward.

We’ll see.
