I really tried to finish this but I didn't like Vic at all. I know she went through bad stuff with Manx, but I couldn't empathize with her and I found her personality abrasive and off-putting.
I couldn't take it anymore. This was absolutely BORING! Nothing was going on, all the characters were flat and I just didn't give a damn.
I'm listening to this. The narrator is bad and the story isn't that good. I'm going to listen a little more to see if the story gets better, but it may become a DNF.
I found this slightly disappointing. I kept waiting for something exciting to happen and the ending just seemed so generic and boring. She didn't come across as smart and made a lot of impulsive decisions.Part of my disappointment is her(show spoiler)
It wasn't meant to be, I guess. There were good moments though, so it wasn't a bust overall. It just wasn't the ending I envisioned for Secret.
This is the first time that I did not like the mystery involved in an In Death series. While some of them have been just ok, this one was ridiculous. The whole(show spoiler)
thing did not work at all, IMO. I know this is set in the future, but it was too incredulous. I guess they can't all be wonderful.
This was excellent! Best book in the series so far and one of the better books I've read in a while. There were so many twists and turns and nothing played out how I thought it would. Kate continues to amaze me and the relationships she has built are fantastic! I was in tears the last chapter and I'm anxious to see what happens next.
This was my second time reading this and I didn't like it as much. I may have been wearing blinders on regarding Christian's issue, but they were off this time and I wanted Ana to run far away from him. This man is damaged and love won't fix that. His possessiveness and controlling ways were troubling. I still liked Ana but she was meek and didn't come across as strongly as she did in the first book. I'm not even sure if I want to re-read the last one.
Originally read: 5/1/12 - 4 stars
Raphael is a dick and I don't know if I want him and Andrea back together. Other than that, I'm enjoying this more than I thought I would.
This was a solid read until the ending. I liked how Eve was weaving her magic to bring down the bad guys, but then it just kind of fizzled at the end. I guess because of the enormity of the crime, I wish we could have been given the results after the arrest.
I'm sad to admit that this is pretty boring. I don't care about Rielle or Gavin. There's little chemistry between the two and I'm just not interested in their problems.
I meant to post this a lot sooner, but my reading goal this year is to do some series' catch-up. I decided to rotate between three at a time so I don't get overwhelmed. My initial three picks were:
In Death by JD Robb (http://www.fictfact.com/series/209/in-death). Before the start of the new year, the last book I read was Missing in Death (#29.5). I've finished the next three so far this year and have ten more before the latest release.
Rough Riders by Lorelei James (http://www.fictfact.com/series/2001/rough-riders). The last one I had read was Chasin' Eight (#11). I've finished the next two and have four more before I'm caught up.
Fallen Angels by JR Ward (http://www.fictfact.com/series/128/fallen-angels). I only read the first one, Covet, and that was in 2009. I plan on re-reading it and then I'll have five more before I'm caught up. However, this has been put on the back burner until I finish the Kate Daniels series (http://www.fictfact.com/series/370/kate-daniels).
This was just ok for me. I didn't see the attraction between Dali and Jim. I think it's because Dali doesn't have enough face time in the series, so I haven't had a chance to get to know her. It was interesting reading about her family and her abilities.
Kate was bad-ass in the book! Her family is crazy and her friends are accepting. Love the relationship between her and Andrea & her and Curran.
