Kaz Brekker and his crew have just pulled off a heist so daring even they didn't think they'd survive. But instead of divvying up a fat reward, they're right back to fighting for their lives. Double-crossed and badly weakened, the crew is low on resources, allies, and hope. As powerful forces from around the world descend on Ketterdam to root out the secrets of the dangerous drug known as jurda parem, old rivals and new enemies emerge to challenge Kaz's cunning and test the team's fragile loyalties.

I enjoyed the sound effects and wish more books would do that. Also, the female and male read their own lines. All that was a lot of fun. Now... The story, even though it sounded like it had potential was not believable. A woman was kidnapped and suddenly she was in love and having sex with her kidnapper within the first 10 minutes of the book? Come on! I had to return it for this reason.

I think I should take a break from reading Colleen Hoover's books. I read 2 in a week and I feel like they have imprinted something in me, in my heart, in my soul... And I'm not sure what it is! That's why I need a break. Don't get me wrong, the books are AMAZING, THIS book is AMAZING and totally worth your money! I'm so sorry, I probably shouldn't be writing a review at this moment, I just finished November 9th and I'm still too dumbfounded...so don't mind me and go get the book! Just do it! Click it! I will just go now and get a tattoo... you will understand me later.

Lily hasn't always had it easy, but that's never stopped her from working hard for the life she wants. She's come a long way from the small town in Maine where she grew up - she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. So when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily's life suddenly seems almost too good to be true.

This is a book about difficult choices amid a very traumatic, but unfortunately not rare, situation. Lilly grew up in a crumbled and violent household. She vowed never to be like her mother but life has it's way of repeating itself. As the writer put it so perfectly... "Sometimes the one you love is the one who hurts you the most".
Please read this book if you can, I highly recommend. It's beautiful, sweet, funny, raw, sad in it's truth, ugly at times... and definitely one of my favorite reads! Domestic violence has to end with us!

Mare Barrow's world is divided by blood--those with red and those with silver. Mare and her family are lowly Reds, destined to serve the Silver elite whose supernatural abilities make them nearly gods. Mare steals what she can to help her family survive, but when her best friend is conscripted into the army she gambles everything to win his freedom. A twist of fate leads her to the royal palace, where, in front of the king and all his nobles, she discovers a power of her own--an ability she didn't know she had.

The beginning really seemed like just another Cinderella story but as the book goes on the more intriguing and bloody it gets. Great first book.

Super Ya! Cute... I was annoyed at times at the characters since they are sooooo teenagers! But come on! It's a cyborg fairytale with prince and Princesses (and robotic limbs). If you don't love that kind of thing then stay away from it but if you are a sucker for cute romances like me then don't think twice ;-). About the narrator... I like her voice. She reads well but couldn't distinguish the characters from each other sometimes. I hope my review helps you.
