Hunter by Eden Summers - 3.8 Stars [arc review]

Hunter, Eden Summers
This is the first book I've read by Eden Summers and I enjoyed it. It was a great late night read! Short and sweet 😉

The blurb:


The hunter has become the hunted. 


I’ve been running for ten years—fleeing my past and clawing my way toward an inescapable act of vengeance.

Until he walks into my life, sure and strong and full of secrets.

He dilutes my thirst for retribution with his touch. He obliterates my need for solitude with his kiss. But it’s his hidden agenda that makes the hair on the back of my neck prickle.

He wants something. Something that doesn’t revolve around sweaty skin and tangled silk sheets like he’d have me believe. 

I have to stop falling for him, otherwise the last ten years will all be for nothing. I need to keep running, keep fighting for vengeance, even though I know he will track me down.

But trying to escape him is just another problem. Because now I crave the hunt.


Things I like:
Hunter! The man is sure of himself and whenever you are reading a bad boy/mafia/etc type of book that is a must. So in that sense it delivered. 

Sarah was a great main character. Well developed and well written. She is a tough strong woman but also one that needs and lacks love. I felt for her and loved her bravery.

The book was fast paced and had all you could hope for: romance, drama, secrets, revenge, passion... It had a great plot. 

Things I didn't think were great:
Also Hunter. There was no character development really... by the end of the book I felt I knew as much about him as I did when he first showed up. How did he get into the business of killing people? how come his relationship with his boss is such a close one? Are they family? like family? The guy is a mystery, which is part of the charm but it is also part of the reason it will  be eventually forgotten. 

The narrative to start felt a little chopped. The sentences were to short and the story therefore didn't always flow naturally. 

All in all not a bad romance and one worth giving it a try! I am glad i requested it.

The Last Tiara by M.J. Rose

The Last Tiara  by M.J. Rose is inspired by a real missing Russian Crown Jewel. She explains in an article to The Adventurine  how she stumbled upon an NPR article about the disappearance of missing Russian Crown Jewels that to date, have not been found. Captivated by it and how such amazing items could simply disappear she decides her new novel will tell the story of the lost tiara.  It is apparent throughout the book that M.J. Rose researched well the Romanov Jewels, the Russian Evolution, and especially the impact it had on the Russian people. Although she never goes into details, the poverty and difficulties the people experienced at the time are carefully and respectfully mentioned.  The book is told from two different perspectives, that of mother and daughter. The alternating chapters reveal Sofiya's life in Russia from 1915 through 1922, and Isobelle's in 1948 Manhattan, US. First we have Isabelle, an young architect in post World War II Manhattan . While renovating her

How to Catch a Duke (Rogues to Riches #6) by Grace Burrowes [ALC review]

How to Catch a Duke, Grace Burrowes I've been waiting for this book for sometime. Lord Stephen Wentworth's past was mentioned many times in previous books and I was hoping Grace Burrowes would give him a happy ending. After everything he went through in life he most certainly deserved it.  As book opening goes, the one to How to Catch a Duke  had me dying of curiosity instantly: "I have come to ask you to kill me, my lord." Miss Abigail Abbott is no damsel in distress, but she also knows when she can't handle an enemy on her own. She believes the only solution to her problems is to disappear and she trusts Lord Stephen will help her. Lord Stephen is a juxtaposition... charming and brutish, sad and happy, caring and ruthless, the most intelligent and most clueless... Although you don't have to have read any of the previous books in this series to enjoy this one, I would advise you to do so. I think Stephen's personality traits and past will be more touching
