Review: Muffin Top

Muffin Top Muffin Top by Avery Flynn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

After reading and enjoying the first book in Avery Flynn’s The Hartigans series, Butterface, I was eager to dive into the second book. There was a wee bit of tentatively regarding Muffin Top, but I’m glad I jumped in. After finishing it, I’m extremely eager to get my hands on book three, Tomboy.

The fact this series is dealing with the unconventional female leads – book one was the female considered ‘unattractive’, book two is the female considered ‘overweight’, and book three is the female considered too ‘boyish’ – means there will be characters everyone can relate to. Being a woman, unfortunately, means we have labels thrown at us all the time – in some cases, we will be able to connect with all the labels being thrown at the characters. Hell, I know I can.

Although it is easy to connect with such characters, I was a wee bit worried before starting this book. I feared the female lead was going to be a cliché, with the story falling into the usual stereotypes. Fortunately, I had nothing to fear. I was sucked into this story from the very first page, and with every word I read I fell deeper and deeper in love with the characters and the relationship blooming between them.

Like Butterface, Muffin Top grabbed my attention and refused to let me free. Once I started reading, I found I could not put the book down. I was addicted, in love, and desperate to see how everything came together. I wanted more of the characters and their drama, more of the humour and emotions, and more of the countless other goodies on offer throughout the book.

It was a sweet story, with some steam and some harder hitting subjects, ensuring it reaches you on multiple levels. It’s a story that will have an impact, one that will stay with you long after you finish. So, if like me you find yourself a wee bit tentative, take the leap – there is more to this book than appears on the surface.

Now, I’m going to sit and impatiently await book three. The hints we got of what is to come have left me super desperate for more.

Review: The Legacy

The Legacy The Legacy by Dylan Allen
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I was more than a little bit curious about Dylan Allen’s The Legacy, finding myself of the belief it would be a book I would fall in love with. Unfortunately, this seems to be one of those ‘it’s me, not you’ cases. I can see why so many people have enjoyed this one, yet I found the book extremely difficult to get into.

If I’m being completely honest, there were points when I considered giving up with the book. I did not connect with the characters and I wasn’t overly invested in the story. There were little things that interested me though, things I hoped would win me over, and this is what kept me reading.

It was these little things, the things that guaranteed I’d continue reading, that had me handing out a two-star rating rather than a single star. The fact I was willing to continue, the fact there was somewhat curious, prevented me from putting the book aside and giving up.

What made it so difficult for me?

Mainly it was the characters. I did not connect with either of the main characters, and I felt no emotion towards their relationship at all. On top of that, it is clear this book sets out to create an entire series for people to become invested in, hence we get introduced to drama and side characters that are supposed to leave us wanting more. As it was, I didn’t care for any of those characters either. In fact, the only emotions I felt towards them were negative, the kinds of emotions that will ensure I will not be picking up their stories.

On the surface, this seemed like a book I would enjoy. Alas, it really was a case of us not clicking. I’m in the minority, though, so in this case I think the problem really was me.

Review: Troubled War

Troubled War Troubled War by Sarah K.L. Wilson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I’ve been addicted to the Dragon School series since I jumped into the first book and am super eager to see how everything comes together. However, by this point in the series, I fear the shine is starting to wear off. At first, I was throwing out constant four-star ratings, yet more recently I’ve found the majority of the books are earning three-star ratings (with a part of me feeling generous). I’m still curious to see how everything comes together, but I’m not as obsessed with this series as I once was.

Dragon School: First Flight, book one, sucked me completely into the world – it was so much more than I’d expected, and I couldn’t wait to get more. Dragon School: Initiate, book two, sucked me in even deeper – it showed me there was more to the story than I’d originally thought, ensuring I would pick up the next. Dragon School: The Dark Prince, book three, was a very important book in the series – it may not have been my favourite book, but it was vital to the overall story. Dragon School: The Ruby Isles, book four, continues to move things forward in a wonderful way – it may not be my favourite of the stories, but it is another important addition. Dragon School: Sword, book five, was another brilliant read, adding more to the series – it was also the book that reminded me why I was following the series in the first place, pulling me back in after a short hiatus.

Dragon School: Dusk Covenant, book six, added plenty of new twists – more than enough to ensure I remained ensnared with the story. Dragon School: First Message, book seven, brought even more to the table – more was added to the storyline, plenty of things leaving me curious as to what would come next. Dragon School: Warring Promises, book eight, left on a serious cliff-hanger – all the books leave on a cliff-hanger, but this was probably the biggest of them all. Dragon School: Prince of Dragons, book nine, was one of my least favourites in the series, but it continued to move things forward for us.

Dragon School: Dark Night, book ten, was one of my favourites in the series, increasing the level of intensity and leaving us with so many expectations. Dragon School: Bright Hopes, book eleven, was a pivotal book in the series, giving us so many new twists and making so many promises for the future. Dragon School: Mark of Loyalty, book twelve, blew all the prior books out of the water, earning it the label as my favourite in the series. Dragon School: Dire Quests, book thirteen, didn’t quite live up to the potential, but I did give it a rounded up three-point-five-star rating. Dragon School: Ancient Allies, book fourteen, was another rounded up rating. Dragon School: Pipe of Wings, book fifteen, was my least favourite, one I was unable to round up despite my desire to do so.

Dragon School: Dragon Piper, book sixteen, came close to being rounded up, but I couldn’t quite bring myself to do so. Dragon School: Dust of Death, book seventeen, felt like a bit of a filler book as not much happened. Dragon School: Troubled War, book eighteen, inched back towards what I liked about the series, but it wasn’t quite there.

With Dragon School: Troubled War, we had another of those dramatic twists thrown in that made the start of the series so enjoyable. With Dragon School: Dust of Death, I felt as though nothing really happened, yet with Dragon School: Troubled War it is clear to see where the development was. However, although it is clear something major did happen with this one, it wasn’t until quite late in the book. In all honesty, I feel as though this book had far too much introspection and not enough action. As the series is about to reach the end, I feel as though there should be a lot more action than there is. As it stands, I was disappointed and expecting more. It was nice to see another twist – although I have a feeling I know how things are going to come together now – I do not feel as though it was quite enough when the series is about to finish.

Overall, Dragon School: Troubled War is a necessity if you wish to see how this series comes together; however, I have reached the point where I’m no longer as obsessed with the series as I once was.

“What are you willing to give me?” Because I want it all.
“I’m undecided.” I hate the look on his face. It’s fear, he’s afraid I’ll hurt him again.
“So just tell me to stop when I cross a line. I’ll only go as far as you trust me to go. Deal.” He nods his head hesitantly as my hand finds the top button of his shirt, I undo it slowly making my way to each before his shirt is completely undone. I only stop to briefly trace the tattoo on his chest. God, I missed this body. His twelve pack casts a heavy shadow from beneath the shirt and I run my fingers over his rock-hard stomach and up to his chest, leaning in to kiss the tattooed area.
“This okay?” I ask from pressed lips against his chest pulling back to look into his eyes.
“Fucking you isn’t my problem. It’s what to do with you after.” Smacking his drink down on the bar top he puts his hands on my waist, walking me backward away from the bar and then jerks me forward eliciting a surprised yelp as I’m hoisted over his shoulder. “See that’s the problem” bringing his hand down on my ass hard, “The way I see it, this is all you get. I’ll give you my cock but that’s it. That’s the only deal I’ll make with you. Take it or leave it.” It’s a start.
Without a hesitation I whisper, “Take it. But it won’t be enough.” He places me back on my feet and looks me up and down, his expression mirrors my own frustration.
“I hate that fucking outfit. I want you naked. Now.” His words leave little room for debate.
“What? What's wrong with my outfit?” I look at him like he’s lost his mind.  
“It restricts access...” crossing his arms he grins, waiting for me to disrobe.
“I’m not taking off my clothes in the middle of this room.” He has lost his mind.
“We’re alone and last I checked it’s a fucking sex club. Take your goddamn clothes off so I can bury my dick inside that tight wet pussy, Drew.”
I’m fucking dripping the minute he growls at me but I take all the time in the world, slipping off each shoulder giving my tyrant his own private show. The more time I take the more his jaw tenses. God, I love riling this man up.  
“You realize the longer you take the harsher the punishment. I will take out every one of the seconds, on that ass tonight.”  
“Promises, promises.” I challenge back. He grabs his cock adjusting the bulge, groaning with the motion.
“You have ten seconds to get it off then I’m ripping it off myself.” His demeanor couldn’t be more serious. He will tear this very expensive, amazing outfit off my body without so much as a second thought.
“Ten.” I start on one of my heels unhitching the ankle strap.
“Nine.” finishing, I move to the other.
“Eight.” The strap around my ankle gets stuck as I start to panic. I’m never going to make it. Fuck! I'm so hot, I don't know which outcome I want more. His punishment or my victory.
“Seven.” Fuck it, I rip it off my foot and pull down my right shoulder strap starting to shimmy.
“Six.” I start looking around the room, “Five.” I scope out where I could go to buy some more time. “Four.” I love this outfit.
“Three.” Son-of-a-bitch.
“Two.” Struggling with the zipper it finally comes loose and I push my jumpsuit down to my ankles.
