Remembrance by Heather Hildenbrand - 4/5 Stars

Remembrance- Heather Hildenbrand
Happy Weekend Sunnies! 
I just finished this beauty and I am about to finish another book. All in three late night's work! hehe I am on a roll :-)

I was given a copy of this book by the lovely author for review purposes and I am very happy to say that I really liked it.
I found that Remembrance follows a very particular style. Do you like the Evermore series by Alyon Noel? Or Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick? Or even the Fallen series by Lauren Kate? To me, all those series even though they have very different plots have similar styles. They are full of fantasy, teen/collage romance, are a tad cheesy, are long (4 books or more) but are easy fast reads too, and well...are not for everyone. Those series tend to either be loved or hated by readers. I happen to love them, so obviously I liked this one too.

It follows the story of Sam, a 20 years old girl who after experiencing a life altering trauma that she cannot remember changed her drastically. Once care free and outgoing now she is always afraid and is socially awkward. 
It is also the story of Alex. He is a werewolf hunter, a good one. But sadly he was bitten and is now in search of a cure for the poison in his blood that is slowly going to claim his life. His search for a cure takes him to Sam, a reading by an oracle reveals she can heal him. However, for that to happen Sam must remember.

Sam was confusing, when she is forced to face the facts in front of her sometimes she simply ignores them and shuts down, other times she accepts them easily. But that has a lot to do with what happened to her and the fact that she doesn't remember and still forgets traumatic events. In the end the way she reacted was very mature and all in all she was a likable character.
Alex was cagey and didn't really let anyone in, so we the readers don't know much about him either, but I liked him. His decision in the end was honorable. 

This was an easy fast read and it has a satisfactory ending. It is not a stand alone but I honestly like the ending as it is...

A Romance Catch Up!

 It has been a crazy month and I fell behind badly on my reviews! But here are some highlights for you. Barbarian Lover (Ice Planet Barbarians #3) Ruby Dixon  2.75/5 Although I liked this one it is my least favorite in the series so far. The book was going well until a little over the halfway point when it just doesn't read right. She accepts leaving someone behind too easily and although up to this point the book does a good job at dealing with infertility it all of sudden throws it all out of the window. So good, I will carry on with the series, but not great. A Precious Jewel (Stapleton-Downes #2) Mary Balogh  3/5 This was different, unique. And I like that about it. I have not read any other book quite like it. She is a prostitute;  he starts of as just any other client. The story was sweet and interesting . The MC comes across  rather clueless at times,  but it is somewhat endearing. The romance is believable  and they make a very charming couple! The Gunslinger's Guide to

Allison's Adventures in Underland by C.M. Stunich

As much as I really enjoyed this book, I have to be honest and say that unless you, like me, are a big fun of the classic, you might not love it. It relies heavily on your knowledge of the classic. Although everything is well explained you will be missing something without it.  I'm also not sure calling this one a romance is correct. Even a dark reverse harem as it is advertised... but that I think will most definitely become the case in the second book. We are just not there yet and when I went into this one, I didn't know it was series with cliffhangers.  Allison's Adventures in Underland  is a fantastic adaptation of the classic. It is Dark, it is sexy, it has charm.  Allison watches a man with bunny ears murder her crash and runs after him. She falls down the rabbit hole in the process coming face to face with the twins. Expect in this version the twins are two very sexy man with signs hanging around their necks that say, "eat me", "drink me". I am s

Radiant Sin (Dark olympus) by Katee Robert [arc review]

This is sadly, not going to be a very popular review. I adore Katee Robert. But this one just wasn't for me. It wasn't a terrible book or anything like that, it just left me wanting more and very puzzled. Every one of the books in this series follows a certain trope and/or subplot genre. Neon Gods is very much a Greek Mythology retelling;  Electric Idol  has the plus size influencer and the sweet bad boy, it is a very modern contemporary romance;  Wicked Beauty , and my favorite so far has that hunger games/dystopian vibe. Radiant Sin  is a murder mystery. The 'one house'/'one train' style that has always been so popular. Here lies problem number one for me, because I don't like murder mysteries at all. Even on my teen years when I read a lot of mystery it was never those. Problem two- there were way too many characters in that house, and they all got their time on the page making it one very confusing mess. It was very hard to follow at times. I think this
