One For the Money (Stephanie Plum #1) by Janet Evonavich

One for the Money (Stephanie Plum, #1)One for the Money by Janet Evanovich
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

For some reason I’m thinking about this series today…I read these so long ago and I remember loving them so much! this series was like a TV show full of action, crazy characters, sexual tension and plenty of laughs I totally shipped her and Morelli with everything in me.
I also adored Grandma Mazur …this series is so freaking long ! I stopped at book 13 because OMG I was tired of Stephanie indecision and bullshit but I think I’m gunna revisted these soon..its time for me to finish them.

 *****Reread April 2017 *****
4.25 funny,sassy bounty hunter stars

audiobook for this is narrated by Lolly From Orange is the New Black BTW!
Yea…don’t ask me why I went from being firmly against rereading to literally rereading two series at once….its like I’m not even me but I dont regret it! Oh I almost forgot about the magic that is the Stephanie Plum series

ok so Stephanie looses her job the only logical next step is to become a bounty hunter right?
throw in an ex who is also your mark, a cast of funny ass like serious funny as family members. Colorful hookers, psychopathic boxers, best friend cops a hamster and a ton of pot roast and cabbage rolls and you have the stephanie plum series.

This is just a great start to an amazing and unique series and its a total page turner to boot
There is something for everyone in this series! it was so cozy to go back to the “Burg” with its big hair, close knit Italian family and just amazing characters!. I remember the first time I read this and I wished so bad that I was italian lol

and I just have to talk about Morelli…wow Morelli my beautiful Joe Morelli…my yummy bossy italian cop Morelli..my yummy chef Morelli. My smooth talking Morelli as you can see..I love Morelli *dreamy sigh* seriously I also have a very obvious weakness for nicknames so when Morelli would call Stephanie cupcake, sweetcheaks anything omg anything I would melted. Theres just something about him that gets to you and omg I just can’t ship her with Ranger never have never will.

The mystery in this book keeps you turning pages..thats the magic of this series..they are such incredibly good page turners
so if you haven’t already tried this series out give it a go..you’re gunna have a blast.

*****ReRead April 2017*****
2.25 stars………………………

ugh oh my lord….I really didn’t like this book….was it me? I wonder. I kept trying to rationalize my feelings : ‘Maybe its because I’ve reread 6 of these in a row’ ‘Maybe its because I just read Phury’s book and I loved that one.’ ….yea that was denial Im () this close to hating this book..and here are my thoughts

what I liked
* I loved Ehlena! she was so strong and hardworking, relatable even she was just a blue collar vampire and its important that we got to see that side of vampire canon in the BDB series.
-> her first scene with Rehv I loved! and every scene in the beginning at least…with them I was all about.
* LOVED the Wrath POV ..like 100X percent. And I loved the problems he was having with Beth in this one. Their marital problems are so human and realistic, they added another dimension to their character their relationship and the story as a whole. Relationships are the same no matter your species.
* loved how Rehv yearned for Ehlena..he was such a torturned character so loyal and long suffering it broke my heart.
*Every single time. Saxton was in the picture..which was I think twice.
saxton photo 7b2e63883fad434c60881e9ae6b68517_zpszsh3w6fz.jpg

What I didn’t like
* sympaths…just the whole idea of them I didn’t understand why JR created them..we dont even hear about them again later in the series..they’re fucking disgusting I hate them so much
*the fucking princess…I hated her with everything in me
*the long extensive scenes of Rehv fucking the princess..who also is his fucking half sister! I know they’re sympaths but what the fuck that was NOT OK and super even more not ok when you count the fact they they had more sex scenes together than Rehv and Ehlena..and why did you include the scenes anyway! fucking incest is disgusting
*Xhex I skipped almost all of her POV scenes I can safely say I hate her now I dont even care that she got kidnapped by Lash she sucks shes a bad character. the way she treated JM is inexcusable to me… I dare someone try and defend her.

I’m sure theres more that I detested but I just want to wipe this book off of my memory…maybe take a break from my reread because honestly I’m not that jazzed about reading lover mine…I now remember the first time I read these books and I skimmed alot …which I did again now totally skimmed the ending totally skimmed the the incest scenes after the first one skipped Lash And now I’m in a book funk and nothing pleases me so thanks fucking Rehvenge and Ehlena you fucking suck

Lover Eternal (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #2) by J.R. Ward

Lover Eternal (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #2)Lover Eternal by J.R. Ward
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


ALL OF THE STARS FOR THE BEAST AND HIS TAMER, TRUE?

****Mild spoilers for the book and sorta spoilers for the rest of the books****
************REREAD 2017************

Oh this book, you dont just read this book…you feel this book in your whole body.

while the first book was great this book was so much fucking better! so much depth, so many more emotions, so many LOL’s ugh. If you started this series and weren’t convinced by Dark Lover I URGE you to read Lover Eternal because you will most certainly change your mind.

Rhage Rhage RHAGE my beautiful snuggly, vampire puppy man I love you so much you’re my favorite fucking brother.

 photo tumblr_mgej22M6bB1rj97amo1_500_zpsuq0dlszh.png

Its honestly so lovely how Rhage first meets Mary! he’s just came down from the beast and when he does he can’t see…and Mary just happens to be at the mansion with John Matthew and he hears her voice and it soothes him.

“Her throat undulated under his hand as if she were swollowing. “My name…my name is Mary I’m here with a friend.” Rhage stopped breathing. His heart skipped a beat and then slowed. “Say that again” he whispered. “Ah m name is Mary Luce. I’m a friend of Bella’s..we came here with a boy, with John Matthew. We were invited.” Rhage shivered, a balmy rush bloomed out all over his skin. The musical lint of her voice, the rhythm of her speech, the sound of her words, it all spread through him, calming him, comforting him. Chaining him sweetly. He closed his eyes. “say something else.” “What?” she asked, baffled. “Talk. Talk to me. I want to hear your voice again.”

After having to erase her memories of him he tricks Bella into setting him up on a date with her because he can’t stop thinking about her voice. That whole scene was hilarious I laughed so many times. “You will call Mary and tell her to meet me tonight for dinner.”

and they actually go on dates which didn’t really happen in the first book lol and Rhage wants to be with her so bad he keeps coming back like a puppy but Mary isn’t just a normal gal..shes really sick and has never been noticed by anyone before least of all a sexy beast like Rhage! so she keeps pushing him away.

Also it doesn’t help that theres a beast inside of him that wants to come out and play whenever it smells her arousal.
 photo tumblr_omz69nqDrb1tezjkso2_400_zpscghuhovo.gif

This book was so tender the way Rhage is with Mary will melt your heart and make you swoon! the first time he sees her naked will always stay with me because it filled me tears and made my heart soar. He’s so special.

But oh when they’re together its something special. Their bond is so fucking special, considering how the beast that lives inside him loves Mary too! I will always ship these too! The Beast made me love them more they’re honestly my favorite besides Xcor and Layla

 photo tumblr_nro5qhDGyr1qd9lt8o1_r1_500_zpsrxalxwko.jpg

for the rest of the story lines
(SPOILERS)
-> I loved Wellsie omg she is such an amazing female! sucks even more whats gunna happen 😦
-> John Matthew omg..my precious baby..I’m so attached to him! way more now than when I first read these! I’m so attached to him and protective of him he’s been through so much and that scene he had with Wellsie when she let him cry..I cried too it just shows what an amazing person wellsie is and how lost JM was. It was the moment when he realized he’s finally understand and he’s where he belongs and it broke me. im kinda upset that his mate is who she is. I feel like he deserves someone better I feel like he shoulda been with a nice chosen..but alas when I re read his book maybe I’ll change my mind
-> tots forgot Layla was introduced here! I feel so bad for her she was so ready to be just an inanimate sex doll for Rhage. She reminded me of Marissa in that shes perpetually unwanted and undesired thats why I loved her and Xcor so much omg reading that and knowing she has Xcor was great!
-> I absolutely LOVE Bella and much to my surprise…I kinda ship her with Phury just a bit..just a little bitty bit..sigh I just love Phury so much
-> I love Phury he’s like the Ringo Star of the Brotherhood …my beautiful loyal vampire I adore you you’re a true gentleman
->that fucking scene where Rhage gets tied down with chains so that beast can come out a bit when hes making love to Mary fuck me that was sinfully hot shit shit shit
-> Mary’s DR appoints. hurt me in such a personal level because I’ve had to go through blood transfusion too and her pain was my pain. I feel like if I was a shellan I would be Mary I adore her.

I really enjoyed this book I love all of the brotherhod books
I can’t wait untill the next one
If anyone is contemplation reading this series, please do

5 amazing big z and Bella stars

*******spoilers********

oh this book was everything! so much emotion so much pain and hurt saturated every single page
I was dazed with Z’s intense focus on rescuing Bella it made me warm! oh I just could not with all the emotions in this book!

zsadist and bella photo tumblr_ntx8vwb1Bo1qetmbko1_500_zpszvht3rjl.png

Z’s past made me cry! way more this time around…wow just wow and the way Bella was with him I was awe every time they were together. Before the rescue the way he tended to her things he is so tender and was just waiting for someone like her all along.
Z is
dark, menacing and dangerous
you wouldn’t believe he had a tender side…women are scared of him but Bella fuck that she isn’t having it.

Zsadist and Bella4 photo tumblr_nlc83lpFJA1tezjkso8_250_zpsju2scdam.gif

As much as I love Z I was absolutly GUTTED by Phury..his devotion and self sacrifice to his twin..I’m in love with him. he’s such a hero and he doesn’t get enough love! Phury is like the Ringo Star of the black dagger brotherhood

I was SHOCKED when he sorta bonded with Bella as well! I forgot that happened and I didn’t think it was even allowed it jsut made me feel even more bad for him..
z phury and bella photo fc8cf6ee95fc48b46827177df989fd0d_zpsdrqpncre.jpg

Bell was the perfect match for him! it was honestly like they were the beauty and the beast it was so beautiful this was such a beautiful story! just watching bella try so hard to love him and him try so hard not to love her..ugh my soul.


” You have awakened me.”

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Every star I could ever give.
I feel as if I’ve been altered.

I don’t want to say too much and scew any perceptions of this book but I will say I genuinely do not understand, for the life of me, how people disregard, dislike or detest Phury or this book. wow just wow

I just read the last scene and I couldn’t stop the streams of tears falling down my face. There is so much in this book so much feeling, so many journeys, so much discovery and rediscovery. and oh the redemption..blessed scribe virgin the redemption in this beautiful book..

Please give Phury a chance, simply because he doesn’t give himself one.
I’m not doing this justice there’s so much I wanted to say..I just can’t stop crying…wow wow JR wow thank you.
this is my favorite of the series.

I wont ever be able to hear ‘che gelida manina’ and not think of Phury brooding in his room or of his beautiful redemption.

**** ReRead April 2017****

5 “sexy smart Vishious: stars

wow this was so much more vivid and alive than the first time I read it! I can see now why so many people love V! he is something to behold with his diamond eyes and stark face..and all his brooding menace.

 photo tumblr_mcn24lpGoc1rj97amo1_500_zpse8iv9m1b.png

I’ve never really liked V but now that I re read his book I’ve grown to understand him more..wow. wow.wow.wow.wow.wow.wow.wow.wow.wow.wow. I just wow. he’s so interesting hes inherently smart, wickedly sharp, focused, direct, stoic even but oh when he feel in love.
and it could only be with Jane is absolute equal.

 photo tumblr_mbpf5awzOQ1qflo5io1_500_zpsdz2xzvc1.png

what a couple they make. she matched him in every regard. this was even more interesting to read given what went down in the Chosen and what the Warden told us about them in her conference. I’m going to have fun revisiting them and having them rediscover their love because they are simply a fantastic couple. their chemistry was insane! all of the scenes of V at the hospital with his budding bonding to his lovely Jane.

 photo vishous_and_jane_black_dagger_brotherhood_by_victorialovell93-d4wbkje_zpspuuxfxxb.jpg

I have to say I loved Qhuinn/Blay and John Matthew’s friendship was so adorable I love reading about it.

V is a fantastic character, I know imma get some hate but I really didn’t like his obsession with Butch. yes I know that the author originally intended for them to be together I guess but I just can’t see it because to me Butch and Marissa will always be soulmates
and in this book his feelings were explained as emerging because it was the first time he ever felt anything for anyone.

I so ship V and Jane. wow. and I can say now I’m a V fan.

 photo 91a3991097d6ba3d6442ea9e43be49af_zpsvmpive3i.jpg

he’s a rough cut diamond, yea but he’s also smarter than any vampire alive ever and a vivacious lover.


V and Jane photo tumblr_on0uv9gtZp1tezjkso1_400_zpszt9er0wa.gif

Oh and that whole Primale business wow. I’m happy I know what happens but still that shit is just crazy.
I LOVED ALL THE PHURY AND CORMIA POV PARTS OMG
cormia is so smart! such an indiviual and original and she’s gunna swish Phury outta of his self hate and make him see light and I’m LIVING for it.
I’m LIVING for when Phury finally SEES cormia..wow their a fantastic couple

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

4-4.5 stars!

Oh I just wanna write Butch ❤ Marissa like 100 times and call it a day
they’re so beautiful two souls desperate to be wanted and to belong, who found each other and their place in the world.


butch and marissa photo tumblr_ny8g7uvQWD1r23pbuo1_500_zpsaenzclhy.jpg

These two man THESE TWO honestly, I just can’t form thoughts without just gushing over Butch and Marissa omg. I know alot of people just wax poetic about V and Butch and how they’re supposed to be together I can see it and its so obvious V is obsessed with Butch but his soul mate is Marissa there are no ifs or buts about it.

oh these two..ok I’ll stop but oh my babies! they just needed each other so much and were stupidly apart twice as much as they were together in this which annoyed me to high heaven.
but when they were together and Marissa was comfortable? oh yes

Butch and Marissa photo tumblr_omz7ykPGKP1tezjkso1_500_zpstxhrhxb5.gif

as much as I love Butch I gotta give it to Marissa she’s just…oh I adore her shes so classy, elegant, strong and intelligent

Things I liked:
-> Butch and Marissa
-> Marissa growing into her own..fuck yes
-> Butch discovering his destiny
-> the fucking sex scenes
-> Beth and Marissa’s budding friendship and bond
-> Marissa wearing pants
-> BUTCH DIRTY TALKING *FAINTS*
-> the fact that Marissa embroiders like a victorian lady ( I wanna be her friend)

Things I didn’t like:
-> anytime xhex was seen, talked about, mentioned..just her..wow I can’t fucking stand her I think I hate her.
->the beginning of this book…I wasn’t a fan was kinda bored and upset because I had just read a book centered on a capture…and whats in the beginning of this book? a fucking abduction..wow.
-> V’s instability….wow you need some therapy and stop drinking brah he literally almost offed himself.
