Review: A Hunger for the Forbidden (Mills & Boon M&B)

December 23, 2013

A Hunger for the Forbidden (Mills & Boon M&B)
A Hunger for the Forbidden (Mills & Boon M&B) by Maisey Yates
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Matteo Corretti is probably the most conflicted character I’ve read in the Harlequin presents line.

Yes, he has seen things and done things that not every man in this world has had to do, but come on, has he ever heard about the term “move on”? Apparently not. I also didn’t like the way he was too cruel to the heroine.

Alessia, the heroine, on the other hand, must be a developing masochist. It’s unbelievable how she falls more and more in love with a man who can be very cruel to her. And this is supposed to be about love.

The only thing I like about this book was the white knight/real man distinction. It took a a while for both of them to realize they’ve been holding on to their ideas instead of getting to know the real person they were married to.

I may be weird like that, but I just did not feel the love between the two of them. I was not completely disappointed, but I didn’t enjoy it as much as I’d hoped I wold.

Tessanne Chin is The Voice!!!

December 18, 2013

Tessanne Chin

Tessanne Chin

The 5th season the The Voice culminated today.

I am so happy that one of my favorites for this season, Tessanne Chin, from Adam Levine’s team, won the whole thing.

I’ve been rooting for her since the first time I heard her during her blind auditions, singing Pink’s rock number, Try. Every other performance she did on the show was just great and miles apart from the rest of the other artists.

While I had other favorites that I also would have loved to see win, it is without a doubt that Tessanne is the one most deserving of the win.

I look forward to seeing and hearing more of her music from here on. She is just a talented singer, and the music industry needs someone like her.

Book Review: Witch Fire by Anya Bast

December 16, 2013

Witch Fire Witch Fire by Anya Bast My rating: 3 of 5 stars I just read this book, even if it was published back in 2007. So far, I liked the first book on the series. Just enough magic and romance to make the plot interesting. I like Mira as a character because even if she has gone through terrible things in her marriage to her ex-husband, she was still a strong woman who knew what she wanted and worked on getting them. As a witch she also took the news pretty well, even if she was a bg skeptic from the start. Jack, on the other hand, is a good man, as his character was written. It was very understandable and relatable for a person like him to feel guilty for the sins of his father. That happens in real life a lot, and it is a very real characteristic of him. I was surprised to have enjoyed this book. Anyway, I will most probably read the rest of this series. Hope they are as enjoyable as this one. View all my reviews
