Kaleb (Alluring Indulgence, #1) by Nicole Edwards

Posted by miss fifi at Saturday, October 19, 2013 0 comments

Zoey Stranford might’ve had a crush on the sexy boy next door since middle school, but she’s a woman now, and that crush has turned into a full blown case of lust. So why is it that at twenty nine, her libido decides to ramp into high gear and the only thing she can focus on is the intensely sexy, scorching hot boy next door who is definitely not a boy anymore?
The only problem is that Zoey and Kaleb have been best friends for as long as she can remember. Not to mention, Kaleb and his brothers are working on buying Stranford land to build a new resort, and she’s more than a little hesitant about his intentions.
Kaleb Walker has had his eye on Zoey for close to twenty years, but never before has he considered taking their friendship to the next level, no matter how many fantasies he’s had about her over the years. That doesn’t explain why Kaleb is hell bent on having her – in as many ways as possible.

Kaleb finds himself in a precarious situation. His brothers have nominated him to pursue Zoey’s father about purchasing the land needed to get their new resort off the ground. Finding out that Carl Stranford is on the brink of foreclosure and Zoey might just lose her house and the land, Kaleb now has to convince her to put aside her pride and let him help her.
It doesn’t take long before the flames start burning bright and hot, and the two of them burn up the nights and the days as they explore each other’s forbidden fantasies. But can their friendship survive a business transaction or the new friends with benefits clause? Or will they realize that they’ve been overlooking something much deeper that’s been right in front of them all along?

Ninety EightNinety Eight by Shannon Mayer
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Speed Limits
Lottery Tickets
Elevator Buttons

Numbers are everywhere—they play such a vital role in our everyday lives. But what would happen if we measured love with equations just as we do our morning cup of coffee? My nana had many recipes in her cupboards, but it was her calculations for love that she insisted I live my life by; and I’ve followed her rules all these years.

One Animal
One Moment
One Critical Impact

That’s all it took for the numbers to start flying in a jumbled mess through my brain as I stared into the violet eyes that would forever make me question my choices. In a split second, the possibilities and reality of true love are revealed and I’m questioning all I’ve ever known.

A Tree
White Fences
Stolen Moments

I can’t ignore the storm brewing around—and within—me. Everything I am is confronted by these new numbers, and all they represent. My past, present and future will all be determined by the gambles I make right here, right now. Again, it’s all about the numbers. 

And what I’m learning is, one plus one doesn’t always equal two and sometimes three times isn’t always the charm.

My Thoughts:


description

DNF at 22% (lol) because I am a loser LOL

description

This book:

description

description

Since I am a very chatty loser, I'll explain my reasons like a proud loser!

description

My only reason of not finishing the book is: I. Hated. The. Characters. With. All. My. Heart. Head. Hair. Arms. Torso. And. Legs.

description

Lets list the beloved characters to make it easier for you to understand my nonsense rambling.

1. ... what's her name again? ... I think it started with a B...nope, not a Bitch, you crude girl! ... hmm... F*ck! I couldn't even remember her name!!! *scrolls through book* Okay, people it's Brielle, Brielle McGraw. She was the heroine of the story.

2. ... Sh*t, I couldn't remember the dude's name too! ... *scrolls through the book, again* Okay fellas, this time it's Darwin, Darwin Alexander . He was the hero of the story.

3. Victor..I don't remember nor I want to remember his last name.. He was Brielle's fiance.
4. Fiona.. Since she was married to Darwin, I think her full name would be Fiona Alexander. She was Darwin's wife. 

description

Lets list why I hated didn't love them :)

description

Brielle ~ I strongly disliked her!

a) She was so damn judgemental! There was this moment when she freaking accused Fiona of being a spoiled brat.. after meeting her for less than HALF a day, all because she came from a rich family! First meeting, and then bam, she thought she f*cking knew everything that was Fiona.

I was not that kind of girl. I wasn’t like Fiona, who no doubt needed several people just to help her tie her shoes in the morning.

What a judgemental b*tch! I mean seriously, you don't f*cking know her, so don't f*cking dare to judge her! Do you even know that APPEARANCE isn't f*cking EVERYTHING??? She could be a rape victim for all you know!

and she didn't stop at that, she continued judging people by the few hours she spent with them..

I couldn’t help but compare him to Darwin, my mind pointing out their most obvious differences. Even just the physical difference of Darwin’s ripped body, which I’d done my damndest not to notice while he sat beside me in the hospital, next to Vic’s trim but soft body. If it had just been the physical, I could have brushed it off, but it was Darwin’s compassion for a complete stranger that had gotten under my skin.

Okay, that one's a nice assessment from someone as b*tchy as her..guess what's the reason? Because he was a guy and he was a hot one at that!!! Guess she was one of those bitchy girls who became an angel when it comes to a hot guy and a devil when it comes to.. women, as overall!

b) She was too proud of herself that I felt like puking whenever she bragged bout herself..e.g:

I couldn’t help but smile. “Dr. Winston, I’m sure we’ll find a way to work around her.” Which really meant that I would smooth things over like I always did and everything would be just fine. Though it wasn’t in my job description, scraping the shit off the ceiling after it went through the fan was a specialty of mine.

Hmm..that statement is exaggeration at its best because by 'smoothing things', she meant causing chaos because at the end of the day, she made a woman cry, got kicked by a horse and went unconscious, because of her 'smoothig things'..Yup, what a specialty!

c) She was a f*cking hypocrite.


“I don’t wrangle ponies. No, that’s not true. I only wrangle them when the handler is an idiot.”
His hands paused over the scissors. “You think the owner of that horse is an idiot?”
“She just doesn’t know what she’s doing. I’m sure she’s a very nice person. When she isn’t around horses and isn’t insulting people


You see..she called Fiona an idiot for insulting people, UNINTENTIONALLY (because Fiona was just a bit too naive..), but she FORGOT that she also insulted Fiona right in her face when she impatiently and RUDELY asked Fiona to stop handling a horse the wrong way saying that Fiona better let her do it properly...instead of POLITELY telling and showing her how to handle a horse properly. Other than that, she did insult Darwin too. And guess what? Since it's Brielle the Mighty, she didn't call herself a f*cking idiot too. Yup, our Brielle the Mighty was just that fair in her f*cking judgement :)

description

Darwin ~ I really disliked that man!

Well my reason would be easy, he was a SHITTY husband. When someone insults your WIFE, you f*cking stand for them instead of bashing her too! It doesn't matter whether you are mad at her or don't love her, you just stand for them because she is your f*cking WIFE and not some kind of SLAVE that you could degrade all you want. And this definitely is a LAW when your wife is some innocent woman who is a bit too bubbly for her own good!


“I … oh my God, I’m so sorry.” Embarrassment suffused me and I was quite sure that my cheeks lit up like lights on a Christmas tree. I covered my mouth with my hand, as if I could take back the things I’d said.
“Why are you apologizing?”
“Because … .” God, I couldn’t tell him what I really thought about her. I wracked my brain, had I said anything really nasty? That day was fuzzy now, and I couldn’t quite recall the words. Maybe I could brush it off … .
“For thanking me for shutting the door on her ‘insufferable voice’? For calling her an idiot horse handler?”
I groaned and lowered my head to the table, shaking one finger at the ceiling. “Yeah, kinda like that.”
“Don’t worry about it. I’ve said similar things, and she’s my wife.”


For God sake! That woman f*cking badmouthed your wife and you f*cking smiled and agreed with her? It didn't take a genius to figure out that you're an ASSHOLE husband. Clue in babe, what you said didn't fucking reflect your WIFE, it reflected your rotten heart!

description

Victor ~ I extremely disliked him.

He was a first-class jerk. But that wasn't what pissed me off..It's the fact that Brielle kept rubbing in my face the LIE that he was a good guy. Till the 22% point, she f*cking said that he was a good guy for 11 times! When the truth was he was the worst kind of bf ever!

a) She went unconcious because of an accident and was brought to a hospital. He was in a meeting, so guess what the good guy did? He continued with the meeting..Wow, that's a really sweet thing to do to your gf! -_-

b) He finally got to the hospital. His gf was still lying on the bed with a few stiches on her head. Guess what did he do? He f*cking started talking bout DEBTS she had instead of tending to her! What a really adorable topic! -_-

“Of course, of course, Baby. You just sleep. I’m going to go find the doctor and see when you’ll get discharged. We need to talk about your life insurance policy too. I’d never realized how dangerous your job was before this. Honestly, Baby, you could have been killed—all your debt would have ended up on me if we were married. And Frank’s reputation would have been tarnished if his stepdaughter died with unpaid debts. It wouldn’t be right, you know, not after all he’s done for you and your mom.”

c) She just got home from the hospital, suffering a bit of dizziness from a lil concussion.. Guess what the good guy did? Nope, not asking whether she needs anything to rest..In fact he didn't even want to let her rest.. So what did he f*cking do? He demanded sex!!! Wow, what a romantic thing to do! -_-


“I have a concussion. Were you paying attention at all to what the discharge nurse said? I have to be woken up every two hours, to be safe.” I turned my head to look at him and he caught my lips with his, his mouth hungry on mine.
I pulled away from him. “Vic, not tonight. I feel like I’ve been kicked in the head by a horse. Which, if you’ll recall, is exactly what happened to me.”
“But you’re okay, it’s not like you were hurt badly.”


What. The. F*ck?

description

Fiona ~ I kinda disliked her.

She was too f*cking bubbly to be real. Couldn't help but think about a HYPERACTIVE five year old gir whenever she was mentioned.

She was very pretty, perky and by the way she danced about, extremely excitable. ~~~~~ ...Fiona hopping from one foot to the other with obvious glee. ~~~~~ Fiona did some sort of cheerleader hop, kicking her heels back at the same time as she leapt in the air. Wow, perky was an understatement. ~~~~~ ...Fiona squeezing Dr. Winston in a hug, even going so far as to kiss him on the cheek. ~~~~~ She bounced backward out of his grasp, clapping her hands, her long brunette hair in a high ponytail that danced as if it was its own entity. ~~~~~ Fiona did a twirl so she faced us and was walking backwards. ~~~~~ I realized she didn’t even see that what she was saying was an insult. Fiona was clueless to the extreme. ~~~~~ Fiona had disappeared, chasing after one of the grooms... ~~~~~ Fiona jumped, yes jumped, to my side seemingly out of nowhere ~~~~~ The last horse of the day was an untrained stud colt—new to the barn—and he was wild. I mean rearing and bucking as Fiona led him down the hallway, his blood red coat shimmering in the light that ghosted through the barn. She squealed and danced in front of the horse, which only egged him on, sending him into orbit again and again. ~~~~~ I hadn’t expected her to burst into tears, worse, they weren’t the silent quiet tears a normal person might indulge in. She let out a wail, her screaming cry

The End.

Shards of Us by K.R. Caverly

Posted by miss fifi at Sunday, October 06, 2013 0 comments
One Painful Star


I explained it below ;)



  That cover?
description
A suit you say? I was SOLD! and that blurb? 
  We meet every Wednesday night in hotel room #364. We stay there until morning--kissing, laughing, healing one another. We're both broken people, him with his alcoholic family, me with my murdered one. I don't know who he is; I don't ask for his name. I don't question him. I only love how he makes me feel, how he makes me forget just how alone I am in this world, and for now, that's all I need. We have three rules: 1) No sex. 2) No personal questions. 3) No leaving the hotel room until morning. Not ever. For four months, I followed the rules. I came to the hotel room every Wednesday night, and his presence never failed to cure me. I was happy with him. But one night, he doesn't show. So when I hear a scream down the hallway, I can't help myself. I break rule number three. I leave the room. My life has never been the same since.
description 
 Well guess what? The awesomeness started and ended there. The rest was an extremely painful torture in the form of a book.. 
.
.
seriously book.. 
description
and don't you dare asking me this.. 
  description 
 because..   
  description 
 Will explain my HUGE disappointment later..once I managed to glue the SHARDS OF ME which was broken cruelly by the book..
Just found the strength to talk about it.
But to be honest, where should I begin?

description 
  EVERYTHING was very DISAPPOINTING and by everything, I mean every freaking thing!
  description

The Characters:

Sebastian was the hero and Crystal was the heroine.
Since I'm not a sexist person, I disliked them both at the same rate, which was :  very much.

Firstly, lets talk about Crystal.
She was an idiot.
A cold hearted one at that.

Next, there's Sebastian.
He was a hot dangerous guy.
A ridiculously emotional one at that.

Well, this is their weird and ridiculous story!

They met and I cringed -> he proposed a weirder-than-weird arrangement and she somehow-ridiculously accepted the proposal -> they met every Wednesday doing NOTHING at a hotel suite till something happened -> her life was changed, and my patience was tested -> some questions got answered albeit a bit too f*cking late for my liking -> a monster was born -> the end!

frustredhead

>>>>> If you hate HUGE SPOILERS, SARCASTIC COMMENTS, UNREASONABLE CURSINGS, and SLIGHTLY BITCHY REMARKS, this is where you stop reading my review. ;) <<<<<<

TBH..
idontwanttoremember
about the book..
about the plot..
and especially about the characters..
but since they were haunting me anyway, here's my rant for the book ;)

The one star rating was purely a CONSEQUENCE for a strings of RIDICULOUS EVENTS that happened in the book...It was also a RESULT of certain STUPID things said by the CHARACTERS in the book.

Lets see the first thing that ticked me off. It started with a C and ended with an L, yeah you got it right, it's CRYSTAL, the weirdo!

She was..FRUSTRATING!
pullinghair

Tears sting at my eyes once the realization strikes again: that there is no one left in this world that stills loves me. That I have no one, not even family, not even friends. I just have Sebastian. - Crystal
She was wrong, she did have a f*cking friend, Ash, who was so f*cking nice and concerned about her! I guess she was just one of those b*tches who could detect a hot male miles away but never  great friend who was standing f*cking in front of them!
girl, stop moping about not having something you already have!!!

and then..
I've always loved Wednesdays, because Wednesdays mean Sebastian, and Sebastian means happiness. He is the one person who never fails to make me feel okay, feel normal. No--he makes me feel better than normal. He makes me feel alive. And I haven't felt alive since my parents died two years ago.
If the weird arrangement was her normal..I couldn't figure out what abnormality would be for her, because meeting a stranger when you know nothing about him every week is not normally normal for other people. It was downright abnormal and dangerous!
I was secretly questioning her insanity at this point.

She said that she knew about Stockholm Syndrome..
I'm not an idiot. I know all about Stockholm Syndrome. It's sure as hell not happening to me.
but..
I love Sebastian.
I love everything about him.
Even though I shouldn't.
Even though I know it's wrong.
I love him.
I love that I'm his prisoner.
and
I love everything about our setup.


I'm nobody. 
I can't even get a real job. <--hmm girl, did you even try  to do so? Because last I heard, you were quite content with your current job..you said these, don't you remember?
I spend my days going to my job at Starbucks, talking to Ash, eating, sleeping, and then repeating it all over again.
That's what my life has become: a never-ending repetition. I'm just living to get over the next day, and then the next day, and then the next day, until it's Wednesday and I'm with Sebastian again
 I can't even have a real friend without it going bad. <--- newsflash girl, you were the one that say you couldn't connect, not that you seemed to try to, with her! Remember this? :
Technically, Ash is my one friend, although we aren't really friends. I don't especially connect with her, and she doesn't connect with me, either. So why bother complaining about it?!


and then she was also kept as a prisoner by Sebastian, for her safety..
He feels good, holding me like this, as he steers me up a hill of some sort. He feels really, really good. And I realize I should be thinking about how to escape or something, or how much I hate him for locking me up, but I just… I can't.
Seriously girl, I thought you f*cking need to get out of there. remember saying this ---> I need to get out of here, I tell myself. I need to get out of here! ??? Make up your f*cking mind!!!


But her worst attitude that landed on my Bitches-I-Would-Love-to-Kill list is her attitude handling this situation:
...people running up the stairs, gunfire everywhere, and then… Sebastian. Screaming at me. Telling me to save her from these men..
They got attacked at the hotel suite. She did not know by whom, except that Sebastian had killed them all and that they had managed to kill her non-friend, Ash, before he got to them.
She went unconscious, but woke up later and found Sebastian with her in a room.
He had been taking care of her...
Guess what was her first question was?
.
.
.
.
.
whatever your guess was would be wrong because she asked f*cking nothing!
what did she asked instead? Nothing..she just did this:
"You bastard!" I scream despite myself, tears burning into my eyes. "I trusted you! And look what you do! You betray me!"
This is where I felt like I could actually die of frustration!

She was a f*cking idiot! A not-normal one at that!
Normal people would have asked about what f*cking happened and why it happened to them, they'd have asked "What f*cking happened?", but she wasn't normal. She was obviously mentally retarded.

I can't handle her!!!
*went depressed*

depressed rain

Since she was..

hopeless
..I'll leave her at that..

Next, I'd like to introduce you to Sebastian the silly dangerous loverboy!
Like I said earlier, he was the dangerous emotional guy aka the cryptic creeper..

Lets start with one particular event shall we?
the event after The Attack, when he was keeping her prisoner..
S: "Did I upset you?"
C: "Are you fucking kidding me?" "You locked me up here!"
S: "That was to save you." (OMG, keep repeating that again and again without explaining it, Sebastian, I just love torturing myself wondering f*cking why!)
C: "I don't need to be saved." (Seriously she was supposed to ask from what or why she needed saving, not acting like she was too f*cking mighty to receive help!)
S: "Yes, you do."
C: "You don't--"
S: "Do you know why I know you need saving, angel?"
"I know you need saving because you're like me!" "We're both fucked up people. We're both shards of what we once were. We both need saving. We both need… we need… we need each other. We need each other to put back the shards of ourselves." (Seriously Sebastian??? You're effing kidding me right? I thought that you both were attacked by bad men , not by the f*cking past! And dude, why are you suddenly being emotional like a girl? You should explain the PROBLEMS, not pouring your heart out at this inappropriate time! Talking bout being cryptic..)
"These men… I can't let them hurt you. I wouldn't be able to live with myself if they did, so I'm keeping you here to protect you from them." (hmm that made sense, but he was still not f*cking telling us any useful info to figure out what the heck he was talking about!)
frusttinafey

well the event frustrated me, but something else irritated the hell out me:
His use of the endearment Angel has never made me feel sicker than this book did!
"I fucking saved you, angel!" ~ "If that's what you want, angel," ~ "Morning, angel." ~ I love you, angel. ~ That's enough now, angel. ~ "Are you okay, my angel?" ~ "I don't know, angel,"
it was used for at least 154 times, I kid you not! The word is now stuck in my head like a haunting memory! This is what we call, THE OVERUSE OF WORD. He never called her by her given name after their first meeting, using the endearment as if she was some kind of kid, what a creep! He made my skin crawled.

But that didn't creep me out as much as the next event:
"Did you not notice? I fed you. I gave you water. I showered you. I've been the perfect gentleman for the last two days, all because of you!" He drops his voice. "I never even touched you," he says, like he's whispering the darkest secret in the world.
The showering thing was to the extent of dressing her and applying her freaking lipstick!
And he was a guy at that!
f*cking creepy!

and he got even creepier...
Crystals: "What are you doing?" 
Sebastian: "Something I should have done long ago." His voice is filled with need.
 "I need you to do something for me," "Do you think you can do that?"
Me: hmm you sound cryptic, Sebastian...
Crystal: "What do you want?"
Sebastian: "I need you to dance for me, angel."
Me: WTF?!
the author never explained why he asked her to dance for him...Some kind of creepy psycho thing I guess..

And he was always telling her this:
"You're beautiful, angel," 
 and asked her confirmation of this
"Did you know that?"
when she was nothing but too f*cking aware of it!

Secretly, I think he was a creepy psycho, with a missing fuses or two..
"I leave everyone. I don't get happiness. I only get abandonment."
hmm my dear Sebastian, when you leave people, you abandon them. And when they get abandoned, they become the ones who get the abandonments, not the one who f*cking left in the first place!

I'm sick of correcting these two when they couldn't even hear me so I'm done with this!
Bye!

Unattainable (Undeniable, #3) by Madeline Sheehan

Posted by miss fifi at Thursday, October 03, 2013 0 comments
Unattainable (Undeniable, #3)
Unattainable by Madeline SheehanMy rating: 2 of 5 stars

Warning: This is not a virtuous and tender love story. It’s chaotic, ruthless, and tragic. This story takes love and kills its innocence, steals away the pure moments, and crushes the hearts of the broken. A story born in childhood, tying one girl to one boy, leads to a destructive path—that hurts more than it doesn’t, that shatters more than it heals—testing the love that binds the two through a lifetime.
Tegen Matthews is the daughter of Dorothy Kelley, a club whore in the Hell’s Horsemen. A plain little girl, Tegen falls into the gritty world of the motorcycle club. When she meets a sweet, caring boy, she embraces the warmth and affection he shows her. Cage West is the son of the president of the Hell’s Horsemen. Tall and blond with deep brown eyes, as he grows up Cage realizes the power of his dimpled smile and smooth drawl. With one chance encounter, Tegen becomes forever tied to Cage. Following is a wayward journey that is filled with regrets, mistakes, and heartache, pulling at the threads that hold them together. Cage and Tegen fight hard but love harder, and in the end, what matters is where the journey takes one girl and one boy, who have been twined with one another since the beginning.
This is Tegen and Cage’s story.
Love doesn’t erase a broken heart, and it sure doesn’t change people. But no matter how old, how flimsy, how frayed the rope of love is, it keeps you tethered to the people you love.





1.5 frustrating-but-not-in-a-good-way stars.

Time to explain my rating!

My final verdict: I hate this book. Period.

description

At first, I read it because I thought that since it's the third book in the series, it will be better than the previous books. And guess what babe? I couldn't be more wrong. The book sucked. Big time.

The beginning was quite captivating..but then it became suffocating! However...

description

So I kept reading the book..And finally managed to get to know the characters in details.

There were supposed to be two main characters in this book, but somehow someone seemed to have forgotten how to count properly, so we got not two but four main characters. Yeah, two lunatics, and two wallflowers...

description

So, our first lunatic would be Mr. Cage.
He was a whore.
A pathetic whore at that.
And he made a huge mistake of falling in love with Miss Tegen.

Now, who's Miss Tegen?
She was a whore's daughter.
A hypocrite one at that.

I have nothing to say bout Cage, because he wasn't that bad but I have a lot of NOT-NICE things to say about Tegen.

I hated Tegen. I hated her with all my heart. She didn't annoy me, she downright pissed me off. Why? SHE YELLS ALL THE F*CKING TIME!!!!!!!!!! IT'S F*CKING DISTURBING AND EXCRUCIATING! Next, she was a f*cking hypocrite. She hated the biker world, but disgustingly used the money that came from it to live (when she could find like a freaking work to survive!) and f*cked bikers. She kept throwing tantrums (even though nobody freaking tick her off at all!) thinking that she was f*cking mightier than everyone when she was downright worse than them. She f*cking think that her sh*t didn't stink!

Cage was far from perfect but he still deserved better than that b*tch!

So the book was supposed to be about them, but somehow Dirty and Ellie slipped in and stole their feeble spotlight.

Who's Dirty?
He was a brother in Horsemen Hell's MC.
He was broken (their words, not mine).
He saved Ellie and his world changed.

Now who on Earth is Ellie?
She was a friend of Cage lil sister.
She hated the biker world but she felt safe with Dirty.

TBH, the stars came from Dirty and Ellie because if I was to rate the book based on Csge and Tegen alone, there would be no star at all.

SO, my final feeling:

description

I recommend this book to NOBODY!


*I'm done with this series, and I'm moving on. Because if you haven't noticed it yet, the same plotline from Undeniable has been abused way too often in this book, and in Unbeautifully.
