I started this series for two reasons: missing Eve and Roarke and wanting to read something from James Patterson since forever. So this series was his smaller and I usually want to read them all after a taste and that was the only reason to start with Private.

I got to say the story was better than expected and this oldie from the TBR pile became easily one of my favorite reads of 2015. I read really fast and the plot kept me hanging with the twists. It was really great to follow Jack Morgan handling three cases very high priority. I think the serial murder case was the worst one but we can see the author wanted to keep everyone hooked and decided to make the worst case possible jut to make sure it worked. But to me the best part is how fast everything works and we see Jack has more like a family bond to some people that work for him.

I’m really trying not to say something to spoil the story, but I think it’s worth a shot if you like mysteries.

This series is my fit for some hot erotica with a great plot. There’s plenty for every taste, but this books are extra hot and very extreme, so if your tastes are more towards vanilla, this is definitely not for you.

I consider Tiffany Reisz the Holy Mary of erotica, because her stories are perfect between the mix of romance, sex, friendship and even some misteries. This is currently book three of the White Years and I’m anxioulsy waiting for the final book, still don’t know how to say goodbye to Nora, Soren and Kingsley.

This book tells all about that year Elle ran away from Soren and how she found herself and became the greatest Dominatrix we know today. It was different following those three separately because I always think about them as more like an unit and this time was more like finding your place in the world alone.

I had some serious crying bouts during this story because Nora became more like a friend to me and I could see her suffering, plus Soren was away studying and Kingsley discovering hinself in Haiti. I’m don’t know how to say goodbye to them, so there’s definitely a re-read coming in the near future just to see them again.

Prince Jaul discovered that his marriage was real and his father had lied to him, so now he needs to find his wife and get a divorce and move on with his life. It was interesting to discover this big alpha male simply accepted everything his father said and now he’s facing the consequences of leaving the woman he loved behind.

I liked Chrissie and the way she handled everything, because let’s face it, her life was normal and then Prince Jaul disrupted everything and left her behind pregnant with his twins. So she managed fine without him and doesn’t want any help. Who could blame her for that?

This was one of my favorite Harlequin reads of this year. I think it’s safe to assume I love when a book has some baby story, but this time is so much more than that and Jaul was very interesting with his past and the way he handles everything now.

Great book!

So I read this book the week it came out and had several months to deal with the review. It was sitting drafted but not finished but I’m not really sure about my real feelings with this series.

I think America was awesome and Maxon was my first pick since book one. And yay I got my happily ever after, but is it really necessary to continue this? I don’t think so, especially after reading this book. The other three were not perfect, but the story was cute and I do love a good reality show, that got me hooked.

I hated Eadlyn, first: because of that awful name, second: she’s a bitch without a reason. For that matter the book started slow and I fought to keep reading, things got better after awhile, but it was too many people and some crazy names at random. I wish this series had stopped when things were good, because after this I’m not gonna lie it’s going to be DNF for sure.

This was such a cute and fun story to read. I loved meeting the Bravos family and discovering this big and loving people. Will definitely check the other series from this author.

I liked getting to know Clara and how she’s dealing with the baby and now the baby father. Dalton was a nice enough guy, there’s nothing wrong with him, but after a vacation holiday Clara wanted more and Dalton was not feeling very romantic after his rrecent divorce. So they parted but Clara is a good girl and she felt that Dalton needed to know about the baby, starting them all the drama.

It was cute watching Dalton trying to deal with the Bravos family and Clara, plus getting freak out about the baby. Cute book for sure.
