Summer's still going on, and I'm not doing any reviews (did some, but not too many). I'm being shit trying to lower my number of reviews I gotta do, so its going up up like flames. My challenges are suffering too because I'm not reading the books I should, I'm reading the books I feel like to and that's not good news. Whatver, here is a series review of books that I love and now that they are done, I miss them. Kristen Ashley is a really good author.
“I don’t get a taste of you soon, I’m givin’ up the search and takin’ you to my cabin in Grand Lake. No phones, no cell coverage, no buzzer. Anyone knocks on the door and I’m shooting them.”
“It was like the Justice League of Super Heroes but instead it was the Justice League of Hot Guys.”
“Chiquita, women spend a lot of time sittin’ around bitchin’ that there are no good men out there. I hate to tell you this, but there aren’t a lot of good women either. The difference is, when a man sees one, he knows it. Then, he goes after her and wears her down until she’s his. Then, if he’s any man at all, he won’t let her go.”Once again, we are introduced to a whole lot of people because Eddie's family is big and Jet's mother became of the likes of Tex McMillan (the new crazy barista of Indy's bookstore and café). We are introduced to a new drug dealer and pimp called Marcus Sloan, because his wife (Daisy Sloan, more like Dolly Parton twin sister) became one of the Rock Chicks.
“It was like someone in a suit walked up to me and gave me a certificate, which stated “Roxanne Giselle Logan, Your Life is Fucked”.”
“I figured the Nightingale Investigations job application form had the question "Are you hot? Yes. No. If you answered no, please exit the building.”Book four was unexpected, because I never thought that it was Vance Crowe's turn (one of Lee's
“The best way to guard your heart was to trust a good man to take care of it for you.”At this point of the series, we know things about each one of the characters and we are only introduce to a handful of characters in every book because, well, family. In book four we see more into Luke's life and the end of it, we meet Ava Barlow. She was looking for him to help her, but when she saw
The Vitto clan includes those two (Dominic and Sissy), but also includes Renzo, aka Ren, and Uncle Vitto (plus his wife that doesn't show much). Remember then, because they will keep showing.
“I can’t be the star in your sky when you’re the only star left shining in mine.”Then, there is another twists in the order and the story became of Kai "Mace" Mason and Stella Gunn. He got really deep and dark secrets that no matter how much Stella tried to suface in the past, their relationship got screwed up. Yes, they were a couple before, but now that Stella became one of
“You want to see fast, we’l go into the bedroom and I’l show you fast but I’l show it to you slow.”Book seven is for... wait for it, Eddie's brother, Hector Chavez. I didn't tell, but all the spanish references (words and phrases) were the it for me. My main language is spanish, but someone like him speaking me both languages at the same time is totally hawt! Our new girl is Sadie Townsend or better known as Ice Princess. Let's get a re-cap! Hector worked with the DEA and he was an uncover working for Sadie's father, a drug dealer. Sadie actually help Hector recopiling info to take down his father. When he went down, they got distanced. But when she asked for his help, to be safe because the new people that wanted her father old empire, well, let's say that did not want her in a good way. Lee, and Hector, denied this help and she almost got whacked. They rape her, beat her and harm her very badly. After that, Hector swore to protect her no matter what and no
“Life!' Vito exploded, making me jump. "Up and down, good and bad, birth and death, celebration and devastation. If you got any balls at all, you roll with the punches and get the fuck on with it, pardon my French”You see, I LOVED Hector's book. We see a really good change in Sadie and we can actually feel all the love inside of Hector towards Sadie. Like I said I freakin' LOVED this book and I will totally treasure it. In this book we see some action between Ally Nightingale and Ren Zano, which leads us to the next book.
The Rock Series is in the end and jezz, the book its l-o-n-g. Ally is now into the family business, PI services, which leads her to a whole lot of problems. First, none of her brothers want that kind of life for her. Second, Ren doesn't want that life for her. So, what she decides? To hide all her work and do it all in. Darius Tucker, being one of the best friends and almost brother that he is for her, helps her out. Ren notices all her work, but doesn't do anything, until she enters in real danger, he complains and Ally send him a good-bye it hurts me to let you go, but this is my life. So Ren must back up two steps and support her, but her family isn't that ready for it yet.
“You seem to have an aversion to the mall.” His answer to that was, “Do I have a dick?” I felt my lips curl up and I replied , “Yes, baby. You have a dick.” “Then, yeah. I got an aversion to the mall.”Again, you see, Ally's book was the perfect ending. Because Ally is just as kick-ass as Jules and she cara to Ally. That's it! Nothing more and, man, I was pissed, becuase I love italian a fuck lot.
Oh, and I must admit that Jane acting as Kristen Ashley was a good play. Writing these books and all, that was good. Also, I must admit that in almost all the books the same thing repeat, like the kidnappings, the drive-bys and all the boys saying what the girls must do. But that is how I liked it and not changing any of it. So, bottom line... I loved these books. They were the greatest rides. Yes, they were long, but the best. If you want romance, action and happy endings, read these books. You'll totally enjoy them.
