Sing (Songs of Submission #7) by C.D. Reiss

 

This is the last book in the series.

Take my hand, my love.
On sinews of air we tread
Aught but distance our guide
With no tempo to our gait
No endpoint drawn
Neither plot nor plan
By the thorns of a compass rose
We bound toward the horizon

5 AMAZING SAD TO SEE IT END STARS!
 
WOW what a wonderful journey it has been reading this brilliant series, I read this book with a mixture of hate and love!
 
 
I hate that the journey with Jonathan has come to an end, but loved every moment of it.
 
CD Reiss has a way of spinning a tale that enthralls the reader, the connection I felt with the characters was so strong. I read the book in one sitting and when I got closer to the end, I wanted to stop reading as I didn't want it to end. The characters growth was evident here, Monica and Jonathan's devotion to each other was so heart warming.
 
Let me tell you that if you did not read this series, you are missing out severely.
 
I have a serious case of girl crushing on CD Reiss, she is lucky she lives so far away otherwise it would be a case of serious stalking. I love you Ms Reiss
 
 
I do have  a tendency to ramble on and on about books I love and give many things away as my reading buddies know! I make no apologies for it! However I will not spoil this book for others. All I can say if you HAVEN'T READ THIS SERIES YET, YOU ARE MISSING OUT!
 
 
 
Simple Perfection (Perfection, #2) - Abbi Glines As I expected, Abbi Glines does it again! AMAZING
Review to come!
Recovering from Life - Debra McKenna OMG Mira,THANK YOU for recommending this book! I freaking loved it!!

I wasn't sure IF I should read it, having not read any of the other 'In The Company of Shadows' books but it was amazing.


I loved..

The superb writing.

The amazing story line.

The flawed characters, ALL OF THEM!




My Gordon who is truly a survivor, his thoughts made me laugh, cry ( poor Gordon )and just fall in love with him.

description



The gorgeous Adam
description


Gordon and Adam doing a bit of this!!

description


And I was like to my husband......

description


I really hated how everyone put Gordon down except for Adam and Clare, just made me furious!!!

description


So I will only say this to them.....

description


I truly loved the ending, seemed just right. Couldn't imagine it ending any other way given how the story penned out! Otherwise I think it would have seemed totally out of character and just missed the mark!


description



However I really would not mind more of Gordon and Adam..........



description



THIS IS A MUST READ, GO ON GUYS START READING AND...

Secret Surrender (The Surrender Series Book Two) - Priscilla West ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest review!

I am really enjoying these installments, love seeing how Vincent and Kristen work on their relationship, work on building trust as well as overcoming insecurities and obstacles that come with a new relationship- especially with Vincent being so busy all the time.

THE SEX IS HOT, however I could do with less talking on their parts and more doing! Still it was HOT!

description

Just when everything is going well, in comes Ariel! Not this cutie.....

description

But an ex of Vincent bent on causing havoc!! All is explained though not to my or Kristen's satisfaction!! We are not happy but we will let it go for now!!

THEN a freaking cliffhanger!

description

Well done Ms West, the next installment can't come soon enough!

Whispers in the Dark - K.I. Lynn Loved it.
Short and sweet! Just the right treat...


Dazzled - Jane Harvey-Berrick 3.5 Stars

I wasn't sure how to rate this, kept going from 3 stars to 4, then I went with 3.5 because while Dazzled was a well written book, it wasn't something I was really blown away by!

It was a really sweet read, not as sweet as this

description

but still sweet. ^^^^ I really need this right now!!

Dazzled was a really funny romance, not laugh out loud funny but made smile quite a bit!

I just did not connect with any of the characters, Miles -though sweet- was too naive and blind for my liking. Clare did not fare better either, the way she believed him straight away after their conflict and did not question him was a serious WTF moment for me. To accept his sudden declaration of undying affection just like that made me want to bang their heads together. Seriously he may not have rammed it in everything that moved, however his habit of falling for his co-stars so quickly showed that the dude obviously confused lust with love!!

I do think many will enjoy this, it is well written, sweet and had funny moments but just didn't do it for me!
Outlander - Diana Gabaldon THAT WAS SO FREAKING GOOD!

SHURA you know I'll love you always but from a scale from 1 To Shura, Jamie is a Shura!

Review to come when I can form words that do not seem like deranged ramblings!!
Chosen Heart (The Heart Series, #1) - Ann  Stewart,  Stephanie Nash 4.5 STARS!!

Boy meets girl, they feel an instance connection, boy turns out to be girl's boss, YOU THINK YOU KNOW WHAT WILL HAPPEN but man was this book so unpredictable!

Our Mr James is HOT, I was a goner the moment the dimples were mentioned...

description

The connection between the two was believable, the author managed to convey the sexual chemistry greatly.

description

I was annoyed with Elyssa and Alex's jealousy issues and immaturity, hope to see much needed character growth in the second book, oh yeah there is a second book. Every time he would get jealous or she would act insecure, I wanted to scream!!

description

When they finally did the deed, IT WAS HOT, Especially the one in the dance club, YUP PUBLIC SEX!

description

The moment Alex's secret was revealed, I was completely shocked as it was something I never expected!

description

AS FOR MY FEELINGS FOR ARIANNA, WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?!!! EWWWW EWWWW EWWWW!


description

Looking forward to reading more about Alex and Elyssa and sharing their journey towards the HEA....

description

^^^^ GOD I LOVE HIM!!

Break Her - B.G. Harlen WOW!! Review to come! AGAIN WOW!
Rage - Kimberly A. Bettes 5 NO MORE TURNING A BLIND EYE STARS!

ALL I CAN SAY IS WOW! MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE BOOK OF THE YEAR!

This book may be fiction but it is authentic, it is honest, it is intense and it is confronting. It may not have happened to the author, may not have happened to me or a dear person, but IT IS HAPPENING THIS VERY SECOND TO A CHILD SOMEWHERE, COULD BE EVEN AS CLOSE AS NEXT DOOR!

A thirteen year old should not hurt so much, no child should be subjected to so much hurt, not one person is deserving of what this poor child went through!

description

I finished this book, was absolutely gutted and then I read the following in the news....

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/crime/10227085/Greater-protection-for-child-sex-abuse-victims-after-girl-described-as-predatory.html

I BECAME ABSOLUTELY ENRAGED! The ignorance and the cruelty in this world knows no bounds.... IF A CHILD DOES NOT FIND A SAFE HAVEN AT HOME, AT SCHOOL AND IS CONDEMNED BY THE LAW, What can we do? WE CAN STOP TURNING A BLIND EYE!

WELL DONE MS BETTES, you have a fan for life!
James (Resisting Love, #3) - Chantal Fernando I'm DONE and thank God!!

description

What I dislike about this Series is that the female leads who are all connected either by friendship or blood, seem to be the only ones with any dignity while the rest of the female population is trashy, desperate and with no morals!

description

description

The cheesy factor was quite high and the sex scenes were meh...

description

I guess this one wasn't for me but I'm sure there are others that will enjoy it, I HATED IT!

description

2 STARS!!






Edge of Obsession (SKALS, #3) - Adriana Noir Sebastian let me start this by saying.....
description

Yup dinner at your place isn't something I will be attending anytime soon!

Lately I have been starting sequels by not expecting much!

description

HOWEVER THANK GOD FOR ADRIANA NOIR and her not turning Sebastian into all hearts and flowers kind of guy, as opposed to what we have seen of him in the first two books. It seems the norm lately to completely turn the male lead into a sniveling pussy-whipped character, yes I want him to love, protect and be loyal to the female lead but he doesn't need to lose any semblance of manhood in the process!

This book had me swooning one minute and horrified the next, this was exactly my reaction throughout but I'm not as cute!

description

Sebastian is so REAL, his actions and thoughts are exactly what we would and should expect from someone in his position. I love his flaws and vices which he is trying to change for the sake of his and Taylor's relationship. There is still cruelty in him that scares me but also a willingness to transform into the man Taylor needs.

TAYLOR I LOVED in this one!! Well all I can say she loves Sebby despite everything, she is loyal to him and determined to stay which is for the best as we know she cannot leave. I see growth and maturity in their relationship and would love to see what book 4 brings for both of them!

On the SKALS front, things are not really going as Seb would want, he lost trust even in his closest allies, THERE ARE SOME REAL MESSED CHARACTERS IN THIS ONE THAT MAKE SEBBY LOOK LIKE A SAINT . CANNOT WAIT TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS NEXT.

So glad there is fourth book yay...
description

5 GIVE ME THE FOURTH BOOK NOW STARS!!

Shooting Scars - Karina Halle DNF @ 30%

I was so looking forward to this book! waited months for it but started reading it and I just got BORED!!!!!!

Looking at all the 5 and 4 Stars ratings had me thinking that this must be some masterpiece of Shakespearean proportions that I just didn't get and I was like what is wrong with me?!!

Then I thought to hell with it, this book wasn't for me and I'm fine with that!!

Will try to get to it later on! For now I will stick with Dex, guess Camden is not for me....
Bound Together - Marie Coulson Review To Come!
Diary of a Dieter - Marie Coulson THIS BOOK WAS FUNNY, THERE WERE PARTS THAT WERE JUST HILARIOUS! I was giggling so much that my husband abandoned the marital bed for the night seeking quieter pastures- even my dog followed him, the traitor!!

Adam was a sweetheart, loved him so! Charlie was an adorable heroine until towards the last third of the book where her insecurities drove me mad but she made up for it at the end....

NOW FOR MY FAVORITE, GRANDMA! GOD I LOVED HER!


“What? You all think that just because I’m old, I don’t know a thing or two about sex? Good Lord. You’d think your generation invented the stuff. I hate to break it to you, but while you were learning to walk, young lady, I was crawling around on all fours. Your father had a cock like a battering ram and more energy than a Duracell bunny.”

I do hope there is a sequel about granny, I think she needs her HEA too!! I will start a petition....

5 STARS! Denture Glue should really come with a warning...






Infraction - K.I. Lynn
* ARC provided by the Author in exchange for an honest review*


5 VERY BLOODY IMPRESSED STARS...

WOW! I read Infraction, was completely engrossed by it, loved it, devoured it and when I finished it, all words to describe it left me! You know when words seem small and ineffective, just useless empty expressions and not as trenchant as you want them to be! Therefore I will let others' words that are more eloquent describe how 'INFRACTION' SPOKE TO ME!!


Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.
Khalil Gibran

man cannot reap love until after sad and revealing separation, and bitter patience, and desperate hardship.
(Khalil Gibran, "The Prophet")


Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
Lao Tzu

Love does not begin and end the way we seem to think it does. Love is a battle, love is a war; love is a growing up.
James A. Baldwin


Love takes off masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within.
James A. Baldwin


I was so glad to see the growth of Nathan and Lila in this one, the love they had for one another, their willingness to drop the masks and their determination to survive their horrendous pasts- pasts that will leave scars yet shape the people that they are in the present!

Well Done Ms Lynn, looking forward to Reciprocity...
