Review: 4th of July

4th of July 4th of July by James Patterson
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

2.5 Stars

As a case comes back to haunt Lindsay from her past, Lindsay's life is turned upside down with one decision.

This has been my least favorite book of the series. Following from what happened in the last book I felt some of the characters were done a disservice (view spoiler) This book was also the slowest yet out of all of them.

I did really like Lindsay's progression in relationship with Joe. She also has the worst case of luck out of anyone I have ever heard of. If this much stuff has happen to her within four books I can't wait to see how she survives the rest of the series.

Review: 3rd Degree

3rd Degree 3rd Degree by James Patterson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

War is on. Lindsay finds herself in the middle of yet another series of kills and this time the killer is bent on starting a war.

I actually enjoyed this book a lot more than the other ones in the series so far. This one kept me on the edge of my seat the whole entire time and I felt as a reader I was more interested in this plot line the the others. There were also a lot of surprises in this book for me regarding the characters. Some of the plot points went by really fast but Patterson was still able to keep the reader (or at least me) invested in the overall story.

Review: Obsession

Obsession Obsession by Jennifer L. Armentrout
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When Serena Cross' best friend says that aliens exist Serena does not take her seriously. That is until her friend is killed by one right before her eyes. Now there is a death warrant out on her head and the only one that can protect her is not of this world himself. Hunter was born to be a killer and fight the Luxen. He is typically the bad guy in the story but all of that changes when he has to protect Serena.

Man that was hot! Hunter was an ass though, the cocky bastard thing was a turn on for a while but I don't know if I could live with that.

Review: Mortal Heart

Mortal Heart Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In the convent Annith has watched all of her sisters get sent out on missions throughout her years.
She is waiting to serve St. Mortain herself but she is never called upon to. Now when the job of Seeress is being presented to her, a position more suited to someone out of their prime, Annith has a choice to make about her future. With betrayal seizing her heart, she strikes out to make her own destiny.

I started out not thinking that I was going to like this book but about 50 pages in that viewpoint drastically changed. Annith was strong and determined and I really liked how she was able to grow as a person and make up her own mind, even though it may have gone against everything she was taught.

Review: Romeo Redeemed

Romeo Redeemed Romeo Redeemed by Stacey Jay
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Romeo is given a second chance. A chance to change his ways and redeem the person he has become. His mission: save Ariel Dragland. Ariel holds the fate of the world in her hands, even though she doesn't know it. As love unintentionally blossoms the fate of the world hangs in the balance.

Not as entertaining as the first book although I was interested to see where the story would go. This was more like a companion novel to Juliet's story. I was never really a big fan of this version of Romeo.

Review: Find Me Where the Water Ends

Find Me Where the Water Ends Find Me Where the Water Ends by Rachel Carter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lydia has been captured and now trained by the Montauk Project as a recruit, they basically gave her no choice in the matter. As Lydia glimpses a world in which the Montauk project never existed she knows she will do everything in her power to make that a reality.

I thought that was a really good ending to the series as a whole and it wrapped up a lot of my questions from the other books. I thought Lydia became stronger in this book, there was a lot that she had to figure out for herself. I did think the ending was a bit slow.

Review: This Strange and Familiar Place

This Strange and Familiar Place This Strange and Familiar Place by Rachel Carter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Montauk Project id responsible for the disappearance of two of Lydia's family members and now they are coming for her.

It was interesting to me how Lydia could go back into her life even though it was not really the one she remembered it being. As I was reading the beginning I realized how depressing and heartbreaking it would have to be to live your life as if nothing had changed yet at the same time everything did.

I liked how the readers got to see more of Wes' story when they traveled back to the 1980s. I did not like the era as much as with the 1940s but it did help to move the plot along. I liked how we got to meet some of Wes' friends that he used to know and how they further 'humanized' him for me and Lydia.

The ending was just stunning!
