Noah lives his life like a eighty year old man. References to latin and greek are all he knows. Holly is his complete opposite - a computer science student. She is in Extra Credit for  hacking into the school computer. Noah is tongue tied and quiet around Holly and Holly has no filter and is fiesty. Their solution to their issues is to live a little in each other’s world and live more n the physical world.. Holly has a boyfriend and is in a long distance romance. But she is not sure all is great between her and her boyfriend.  Noah is already half in love with Holly. Noah and holly can talk about anything with each other but their feelings. Rachel and their friends encourage Noah and Holly to go further with their relationship. Holly is totally unaware of the effect she has on Noah. But Noah is good at hiding his feelings especially since he doesn’t want to lose his friendship with Holly.     

I had mixed feelings on this novella. But I did like Holly was the computer nerd and Noah was the quiet shy one. I advise you to read the other books in this series in order so you know the other students involved in this book. I did like how Naiah and Holly interacted with each other.  I did enjoy watching Noah and holly’s relationship grow.I did however feel like this was lacking something. I felt this geared toward the younger teens. I think Noah was just a little too passive for me. This dragged at times for me. As I said I had mixed feelings on this.

I loved the way Olivia and Cole interacted with each other. I really enjoyed the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend.

Didn't Like The Characters

Never Dare a Wicked Earl (The Infamous Lords) - Renee Ann Miller

Hayden Milton is a well known rogue. When he’s shot by an ex-mistress, he’s stuck recuperating at his townhouse. His ornery personality has him going through physicians. When a nurse is the next to show, Hayden absolutely refuses to let her take care of him. When Sophia dares him to let  her stay for 10 days, he can’t resist. He also can’t resist acting his roguish worst to get her to leave.

I didn’t like this book at all. It was very much over the top with Hayden’s actions and started with Sophia’s insta-lust over an unconscious patient. I felt that every way she acted was exactly why women weren’t allowed to be doctors.

Heat - Donna Grant

Nikolai is a dragon shifter who has a special gift of instant memorization. Because of that, he is very solitary. There is one person he doesn’t want to stay away from and when Esther asks for his help, everything in his world will change.

This was the next novel in Donna Grant’s Dark Kings series. As with the others, it didn’t disappoint. I loved it. I loved Nikolai and really loved Esther’s journey. She had appeared in other books, so I was happy she got an HEA. Giving us a different perspective of Ulrik makes me want his book to hurry up and get here! Poor Rhi! She has been my favorite character throughout all of these books and this one had me wanting to punch something for her. It’s driving me nuts not knowing her dragon! I can’t wait for the next book.

A Little Disappointing

Ramses the Damned: The Passion of Cleopatra - Anne Rice, Christopher Rice

This is the decades-awaited sequel to Anne Rice’s The Mummy. I was so excited to read it that I had to go and buy the first part and read it first. The first one was almost as good as her vampire books (nobody can top Lestat in my eyes!). Unfortunately, this one wasn’t as good as The Mummy. It character hopped a lot and dragged a bit during the first half. Because of that, I had to keep putting it down and read something else. I know she wrote this with her son, so I don’t know if she wrote half and he wrote half or what, but it was a bit disappointing. The writing was still great, just took too long to get through.

The Bookworm and the Beast - Charlee James

Izzy Simon accepts a 2 week assignment to assist a children’s book author. He’s the gruff to her cheerfulness. She eventually starts to wear on him and he finds himself bending a little bit to her ways.

I really wanted to like this book. Unfortunately, it reminded me very much like a book I read about a year ago. Same set up, situation, and personalities. Because of that, it made it very hard for me to get into it.

Not Bad

Lies Jane Austen Told Me (Proper Romance Contemporary) - Julie Wright

Emma has been in love with Mr. Darcy ever since she read Pride and Prejudice. When the man she thought to be her Mr. Darcy turns out to be more like George Wickham, her whole world is shaken. However, there may be more to her brother than he seems.

As a huge fan of Pride and Prejudice, I had to give this a try. I’ve read some hits and some misses when it comes to other authors, but am always willing to try a new author. This one was kind of in the middle for me. At different times, the characters were a bit annoying misunderstandings just went on a bit long for me. Overall, not a bad book. I would like to try more books from this author.

What Jen didn’t know was when TJ looked at jen all he seen was curvy hips, plump red lips, and colorful tattoos of flowers and fairies. She was an enigma.

I just couldn’t really get into this book. I felt like Jen had a big chip on her shoulder she needed to get rid of. TJ was nice to her and all she usually did was taunt him that was just very immature. Jen had been into TJ since HS but you couldn’t tell by the way she acted as far as I am concerned she was suppose to be an adult. Jen and TJ just don’t jell for me as a couple. If anything TJ is too nice for her. I also felt the end was too rushed. This just wasn’t for me.

I loved this story. It was an easy quick very enjoyable read. I finished it in one day but then I had problems putting it down also. This book had my interest from beginning until the end. I loved Danny and Gabrielle together. Dani just added to the whole story. There was a lot of emotion in this romance and drama but it all just fit together. I loved the plot and the pace. I don’t usually like going back and forth between the past and the present but the author did this in such a way that i didn’t mind at all. I did choke up at times while reading this book. I couldn’t find anything to criticize in this book and that was great. I loved the character and the ins and outs of this book and I highly recommend.
