Book Review “Now or Never” by A.J. Bennett

I rated it:

2stars

 

I honestly found so little enjoyment in this book that I can barely even remember what it’s about.  I had to go back and read the summary on Amazon in order to even write this review.  Synopsis:  Girl leaves fiance, girl moves home, girl sets out to have lots of meaningless sex with lots of different guys, girl falls in love with one of those guys.  The end.  The most interesting part of the book is when Derrick (the boy who Grayson falls in love with) goes to war and is nearly killed.  And Grayson has this weird ability to sense when someone close to her is hurt or sick so she knows before hearing anything about the accident.  There isn’t however, any point to her strange ability…just some random thing that the author threw in there in an attempt to make it more interesting.  I guess it wasn’t the worst thing in the world I’ve ever read (see this review), but I really wouldn’t recommend it.

“Knotted Roots” A review

I Rated It:

Knottedrootsmain4stars

 

I was a little nervous when I started reading this one, but it turned out to be a bit deeper than I had originally thought it would be.  Roxie, who has just completed her junior year of high school, is sent away from her New York city home to spend the summer in South Carolina with her grandmother; her grandmother who she’s only met once.  I thought this was going to be the cliche story of a shallow teen who turns her life around after spending time in a small town.  That did happen, but there was a little more to it than just that.  Roxie falls in love while in South Carolina and struggles to accept her feelings for someone who is so different than she is.  She makes real friends and experiences what real family tragedy feels like.  By the end of the story, Roxie is even considering remaining in South Carolina for her final year of high school…all based on the events of one life-changing summer away from home. After researching the book further, I discovered that this is Ruthi Kight’s first novel.  I’ll definitely be reading more books of hers in the future.

Book Review: “No One’s Angel” by Kelly Walker

I Rated It:

3stars“No One’s Angel” is the story of Tess (Angel) and Axel (Arion) who met in an online gaming community.  After suffering abuse and obsessive control under her current boyfriend Nick, Angel sets off to find Arion in the real world.  The book gets pretty racy as the two of them discover their true feelings for each other.  Everything seems to be going well for the couple, until Nick figures out where Tess is.  At this point the book turns to the thriller genre a bit as Nick tries to reach Angel and Arion is forced to protect her.  Overall, it’s a fast-paced, well written romance novel with just a bit of suspense thrown in at the end.  With the explicitness of some of the sex scenes, it was definitely written for an adult audience so don’t be fooled by the title, the book cover, or the age of the characters.
