Glamorous movie star Dara Thomas has it all - an Oscar nomination, dozens of magazine covers proclaiming her the sexiest woman alive, and people of both sexes clamoring for her attention. She also has a carefully guarded secret life.

I’m an atheist and the main character could see angels and spirits. This alone did not turn me off completely, I just tried to think of it more as a fantasy. However, there were many other problems. I’m three hours in and the two main characters haven’t even met. They have written to each other but only a couple times and about nothing personal.
The narrator spoke way too fast. It bothered me to the point that I had to slow the audio speed to .75. This was still not ideal.
I have not finished the book and I’m unsure if I will. So far I am very board and feel like I’m wasting my time.

With the arrival of Courtney Carrington, Margaret's youth sparked into color. But first loves can scar. Margaret hasn't seen Courtney in years and that's for the best. But when Courtney loses her father and returns to Tanner Peak to take control of the family store, Margaret comes face-to-face with her past and the woman she's tried desperately to forget. The fact that Courtney has grown up more beautiful than ever certainly doesn't help matters.

Based on the reviews, I thought the narrator would be terrible but I actually liked the job she did. The book itself was not exactly what I expected but I loved the story. It had a similar feel to “The Art of Us” which is my favorite lesbian romance and trust me, I’m an expert.

Nobody would ever describe Scarlet Williams as a ray of sunshine, but that doesn’t mean she deserves the flood that wipes out her basement flat, making her temporarily homeless. Enter Joy Hudson, local mayor & sunshine specialist, who opens her house to flood refugees and ends up with Scarlet on her doorstep. Two more opposing characters you couldn’t fail to meet, and yet, somehow, they strike up a friendship. But when the rain stops and the sun comes out, could that friendship blossom into something more?

Eighteen-year-old Charlee Parker met the love of her life in a parking lot-a leggy brunette with a valedictorian medal hanging from her rear-view mirror and an attitude as biting as a Boston winter. Alexandra Woodson was guarded, a 19-year-old orphan set on a bright future in hospitality administration. She never imagined an art student with a penchant for cheesy pick-up lines and stealing parking spaces would crack her rigid exterior and claim her heart. For four years, theirs was an enviable love - evergreen and growing. Unbreakable... until it broke.

This book is amazing. The characters are all perfectly developed and I must admit I’m madly in love with Charlee. That being said, this is not your typical feel good romance. It’s heavy and deep and you will feel the pain of the characters. If you are looking for something light hearted, this book is not the one. If you are looking to really feel, love, laugh and cry, buy this book.

They captured me in a dirty alley and injected me with a virtual reality chip, a GPS tracker, and my first Seed. They made me a Player. At first, I loved the miraculous ability to level up anything about myself. Then they yanked me off my world for the first time and sent me to fight for my life on a vicious alien planet where the other Players are just as dangerous as the monsters, and if you can’t level up, you die. But I’m the type to cling to life by the tips of my bloody fingernails. And I hate it when people try to control me.

I was a little disappointed by the complete lack of status updates. The main character starts at level 1 and you don’t get an update until a few hours before the book ends. Only vague explanations of “I gained a few levels here or a few stat points there”.

Despite this, I thoroughly enjoyed the book in its entirety. I grew to love all of the characters and the fear felt so real. Other reviews have mentioned the first half of the book being better than the second but I don’t agree. If you are considering reading this book, do it!

If you thought the last book was sad, this book will rip your heart right out of your chest. When I first finished this book, I wasn’t sure if I would even read the next one but I know I will. I just hope the author gives me something to smile about next time.

That being said, I love this series and the author.

Coming into this book I thought there were too many plot lines that needed to be closed for one book to end the series effectively but the author did a great job. He tied up all of the loose ends in a way that never felt rushed or forced. I had my issues with the antagonist POV in the first two books and even skipped entire chapters but something kept me hooked and I listened to this entire book start to finish. If you read the other two, don’t stop there, this book is well worth the listen.

The MistVillage has been noticed. Evil nobles from the Kingdom of Law, bloodthirsty goblins from the Serrated Mountains, an undead lord with a penchant for human sacrifice, and fanatical kobolds from the Depths all plot the village's destruction.

I have read and/or listened to all the books in this series and I have finally come to terms with the fact that I absolutely hate the main character. Richter is sexist, selfish and disgusting. His constant need to reference cock(or something similar) in vivid detail is utterly cringy. I wouldn’t be surprised to hear that the author is gay with all of the dick references in this book. As a woman, I find all of Richter’s lectures to the audience about how to handle a woman when she is angry(and any other emotion she may have) extremely off-putting. I feel like the author is trying to alienate women from reading his books. It may have been funny the first or second time but when these references are made every time he interacts with a female, it becomes extremely irritating. Overall, I enjoyed this series in the beginning(it may have even been my favorite) but now I am just angry at the author for his gross and repetitive sense of humor ruining a good thing.

Enter Allison Sawyer, a free-spirited senior at New York University. Elena is intrigued by Allison's ability to push her out of her element, and the young woman's instant and easy connection with a normally shy Lucas quickly earns Allison the job. After each blind date, Elena returns home to complain to Allison about her lacking suitors. As they bond, Elena begins to realize that the person possessing all the qualities she most desires might just be the woman who has been in front of her the entire time.

I love this book. It’s now at the top of my list of lesbian romance novels. The characters are witty and real and I found myself laughing constantly at the dialogue. I was expecting more of a climax toward the end but I feel that the progression was much more realistic than most other romance books.

Don’t pass on this one!
