A Novel Obsession by Jeff Joseph

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Although, not my normal genre, I found myself flipping pages like a man woman...I would recommend this book to everyone. It's a great read for people who love suspense, thrillers and mysteries...I'm so glad that I read it.

Review: Fifty Shades Freed

Fifty Shades Freed
Fifty Shades Freed by E.L. James

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Alright...1 trilogy out of the way and review is here...

50 shades of freed, was a good read, I was, as assumed in the 50 shades darker review, aware of the bad guy in this book, I hate that...I was taken aback by the twist in that particular plot, it was intriguing and a definite surprise.

I give this entire series 5 stars...yes Christian is an ass and a bully, yes Anastasia is a pushover and rather clueless at times, but they seem to make it work...I felt parts of the series did drag a bit, telling endless tales of everyday things that do not really advance the story or give us any real incite to their relationship, but it was still a good read.

The ending Epilogue was interesting and I was thankful for a wrap up to their tale. The last section, which was entirely too short, by the way *shades of Christian* and *meet fifty shades* was probably my favorite, just because I am not a fan of first person story telling...I like to know where everyone is coming from.

Last, but not least the best parts about this book are the parts you don't see coming until the sentence right before. I loved them all.

*Christian as a submissive* I almost wet myself...

happy reading Minions xx

Review: Fifty Shades Darker

Fifty Shades Darker
Fifty Shades Darker by E.L. James

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Alright, 50 Shades darker down ;)
This series is good, I would still recommend it to everyone. I gave this section of the trilogy 3 stars because Christian lost a lot of Dom points in this book.
Don't get me wrong, he is still alpha male, but he becomes quite whiny and a bit to needy for me in this book. Added to the endless harping of "I love you's" and "Will this work?" internal conversation from Anastasia, I had a few eye rolling experiences.
The twists were good, expected, but still a page turner and I did again lose some sleep reading just one more chapter.
Also, I was upset that they seemingly gave away the bad guy for book # 3 at the end of it, this remains to be seen since I'm still reading #3...
All in all still a good trilogy
