REVIEW: Off Course by Sawyer Bennet

REVIEW: Off Course by Sawyer Bennet

I have been craving Off Course with something bordering obsession. I stalked facebook, waiting for any sign that it might be live early. I typed the title into the Amazon search bar on what seemed like a daily basis, hoping that it would appear. So when it did indeed appear early, I frantically one clicked and sat down to read. In the end, I have to regretfully say it wasn’t everything I hoped. What I liked: I loved the change of setting from the rest of the series. Ireland was a nice change, and added lots of new, unique people and elements to the story. We’ve still got a connection to the rest of the crew back in New Jersey ( Renner is Linc and Nix’s cousin) but they are only mentioned in passing for most of the book. Nix does make a brief appearance, which was nice to see…. Read more »

REVIEW: Escaping Reality by Lisa Renee Jones

REVIEW: Escaping Reality by Lisa Renee Jones

Kelly here with another book review, this time of Escaping Reality by Lisa Renee Jones (Source: Arc provided from the publisher through NetGalley.) I loved this book, and I hated this book. I still haven’t made up my mind yet whether it is 4 stars or two stars, so I’m going to explain my reasons for both, and let you decide for yourself. What I loved: Even though the first few pages were a bit hard to sink into, by the 3rd chapter I was hooked. Amy was nothing special, but Liam is intoxicatingly hot. The suspense in this book is really what propelled me forward. There is a big mystery, and lots of pieces of the puzzle to try to work out, and that had my brain furiously reading on, wanting more clues. There was a fair amount of sex in this book, a lot more than say in… Read more »
