Ms. Blaine has done it again. Who doesn’t want two HOT likable men bidding for her attention, I know I would. If love triangles aren’t your thing don’t fret, there’s plenty of humor and yummy treats to go around.

Our thoughts...

Cam Girl is officially on my Best of 2015 list. This book is so many things. Every reader will glean something different, pick up on nuances particular to their life and experiences, much like looking at a painting by Jackson Pollock or Frida Kahlo. Heck, even a Rorschach inkblot test. Our lives have all been sculpted from different materials using an array of tools. Cam Girl is a story that consumes. It digs in and expands, makes itself at home. It is suspenseful, mysterious, heart-wrenching, and eye-opening.

Review: If You Dare by A.R. Torre

Title: If You Dare

Our thoughts...

If You Dare is the third installment of the Deanna Madden series and it does not disappoint. One thing I like about this series, other than the characters and concept, is the fact that each book is unique in the way the story approaches Deanna’s life and the challenges she is facing. It isn’t the same story modified slightly over and over. Each book allows us to see a new facet of Deanna and some of the situations that arise when one is a presumed sociopath.

Our thoughts...

In terms of a Young Adult paranormal novel, this book was good. Add in the fact that is was Christina Lauren writing and that turns into “of course it’s good.” Even with all of that, I just wanted more. More suspense, more feelings, more anxiety, more tension. I’m greedy like that. Christina Lauren has consistently trained me to expect great things because they deliver those great things time and time again. I keep reminding myself that this book is YA so maybe it shouldn’t have more of all of those things on my wish list. But then I am reminded that YA doesn’t equate to tame, it represents not only the age of the target reader but also the main characters. I preferred having my pants scared off more as a teenager than I do as a grownup. Even as an adult, I wish this book had more of those fun, scary moments.
