Crescendo (Hush Hush saga, Book 2)- 4.75 out of 5

Aaaaaahhhhh... this book was nerve racking!! (in a good exciting way). I was on edge the whole time and I feel the desperate need to start the next book immediately! The unexpected cliff hanging ending is killing me here!

I truly seriously honestly do not understand all the low sad reviews on GoodReads. Why?!?!?
Ok, it is not the most mature book out there, but its not meant to be. Its an YA, a teen read! And it delivers! I am only not giving a 5 because the new character: Scott, is for the most part pointless and stupid. I didn't like him. And considering I always like the underdog on books, I think that means a lot.

The plot is immense. There are so many twists and turns, so many things happening at once! Some of them get sorted by the end of the book. others are left for the next one. I can't wait to read it!

Patch still Patch. He drives you crazy! The angel has so much wit and so much heart. His relationship with Nora was maddening. There were things going on and pulling them apart the whole time.
There were many reviews describing Nora as a dumb, but I for one think she is very clever and very brave. Giving up on someone is not easy, even when you know it is for the best, and that is what you see through out the book. Her thoughts, her struggle, her raw feelings. I don't think any of that can be described as dumb or silly. She stood up for herself and at least try to carry on with life and defend herself on her own. Yah, ok...she sometimes acted impulsively, but what teen in love and hurt has not? Accurate description of real teens if you ask me! :)

Quickies, April 2021

I read a good amount of older releases this past two months. I will not write long individual reviews for every single one of them but here are is a little bit about each one of them:  - Visions of Heat by Nalini Singh It's unlikely I will ever dislike something Nalini writes. She is a master of her craft. This is the second book in the Psy-Changeling series and it is just as good as the first. Shy and isolated Faith is plagued by visions of blood and murder. She has questions and needs help but can't ask those around her. She turns to the changelings and the only Psy she knows that has defied her race (first book in the series). Vaughn is more cat than human but has to control his instincts not to scare Faith away. This was a fabulous paranormal romance read but you really must read the first book first! 4 stars from me :)  - Desperate Measures by Katee Robert Desperate Measures is the story of Jafar and Jasmine. But if you read Katee before you know it is not that simple at

A Touch of Darkness (Hades & Persephone #1) by Scarlett St. Clair

I knew very little going into this book except that it had my current favorite bad boy in it: Hades! Seriously though, I have a "hades tbr" at the moment, it's a thing. And if you know any good Hades based romances do tell me. Always and forever looking for more. Hades, the God of the Dead was phenomenal. I have ZERO complaints about his character. There was more to the underworld than known by other gods and humans, and the same is true about the man that runs the place. He is to the point and although not always up front and straight forward he is always honest and true. He has built a gambling empire but his bets are not always monetary and they are known for being impossible.  Persephone was very much still learning who she really was. Up until meeting Hades and for some time after she has no power of her own. Plants die at her touch and that is that. She is also known as the goddess of spring, but that is not because of who she is but rather because of who her mother

Yes & I Love You by Roni Loren [ALC review]

It is always nice when a book surprises you. Yes & I Love You was more than the title suggests. Yes, it is certainly a romance novel, but it also deals with things most of us don't think about when talking inclusion in books. The main female character, Hollyn, has tourette syndrome and suffers panic attacks. The disease affected the character's daily life but didn't define who she was. The author, Roni Loren,  holds a master’s degree in social work and spent years as a mental health counselor, and it is clear her experiences helped her here. She represented the illness well and did a great job at demonstrating how anxiety and other daily things we take for granted made things harder for Hollyn.   Hollyn is very successful in her field. She runs a popular blog and her word is the law. If she recommends your business or entertainment it is certain it will be successful. But because of her tourettes she hides behind the screen and no one knows what the popular reviewer &qu
