Review: Torture to her Soul

Torture to Her Soul (Monster in His Eyes Book 2) - J.M. Darhower
"She didn't ruin me," I say. "She just made me realize there wasn't anything left to salvage in the first place. I died with your daughter, Raymond. I'm the walking dead, and nobody loves a monster. Nobody"

OMG. I Love Him !!!♥♥ I love this Monster :-D
(though its not for the first time but i have recently fallen in love with Naz)
my God, after reading this series I am sure I ll start falling for criminals :-P
It was a fantastic book. A page turner just like the first book in this series. It didn't feel dragging at any point. It was like, a world was constructed around me, Naz's world. And it was too fascinating to indulge in this world. It was very well written, full of emotions and feelings. Just simply Perfect !

"Perfection doesn't exist," It's a mask people wear to conceal their ugly truths. Never trust someone who only ever smiles at you"

P.S. The quotes as in Naz's dialogues were really good..!
recommneded to everyone !
Naz ♥♥♥







I don't believe in Fairy-tales and Prince Charming.

I believe in fear.

He taught me how to be afraid.

We first met on a playground during a wonderful summer day. It was the first time he hurt me and it wasn't the last. For ten years he's been my tormentor and I've been his forbidden. But then he went away and yet I was still afraid.

Now he's back and wants more than just my tears. You see...he thinks I sent him away so now he wants revenge...and he knows just how to get it.

*This book is new adult and contains rough elements. Readers should be 18+.





Review: Monster in his Eyes

Monster in His Eyes - J.M. Darhower


Karissa is an 18 year old college girl who falls for a man twice her age.
Naz is a hot, irresistible and a dangerous man.
They are connected but not in a good way. She doesn't know what she is falling for. But he knows it.

"Be careful what you ask,
The answers aren't always pretty"

When they have gone too far in their relationship, Karissa realizes Nothing's the way it seems. The facts she is trying to ignore can not be ignored further. The truth is served right into her face. Irrevocable.

"My Prince Charming turned out to be the villain of my fairy tale.
Nothing lasts forever.
Happily ever after, i think, doesn't exist."

I really loved Naz. His personality, his care, his love for her.
He is a killer, he is famous, he belongs to Her and She is his!
He gets what he wants.

"It's a beautiful concept: your soul mate, a part of you, existing in the world inside of another body. People spend their entire lives searching for the one, the one who can complete them, but I never had to look. Mine started chasing me before I was even born."

The story was well written definitely a page turner. Yet there were many parts of his personality and his past which are still kind of hidden. So, I am straightaway diving into its second part Torture to her Soul.

Recommended to everyone.

Review: The Law of Moses

The Law of Moses - Amy Harmon

5 ++++ STARS

“There are laws. There are rules. And when you break them, there are consequences. Laws of nature and laws of life. Laws of love and laws of death.”

First of all.... WOW !!
What a beautiful, unique story. A must read. Amy Harmon is an incredibly gifted, beyond perfection author !! Her books touch me, connect to me in many ways. They stay with me for a long time. She is one of the best authors i have ever read ! infact top 3 :)
This story is about Georgia & Moses, two entirely different personalities yet a strong bond among them. Georgia is a blonde Cowgirl, lively, funny, stubborn and having a great love of horses. Moses is a cracked baby abandoned in a laundry basket and a mesmerizing artist who expresses his thoughts through his paintings. But he has a "SECRET". A secret that makes him different from all others, that makes him the way he is.
I don't prefer adding anymore spoilers. Just to let you know it was a great book, it can be classified in the Paranormal genre as well. Thou shall read it.

Yet Georgia falls for him. For that cracked baby, that lonely, strange, messed up man he's turned into.

“I’m a very ordinary girl, Moses. I know that I am. And I always will be. I can’t paint. I don’t know who Vermeer is, or Manet for that matter. But if you think ordinary can be beautiful, that gives me hope. And maybe sometime you’ll think about me when you need an escape from the hurt in your head.”

"Let the water fall. Let it come crashing down. Let it flow through your head and out your eyes. Water is clear when it washes the pain away. Clear when it cleanses. Let it take the colors away.”

I really sobbed a number of times while reading this book. It touched my heart, as simple as that.

One of the great thing about this book was its Prologue.
“If I tell you right up front, right in the beginning that I lost him, it will be easier for you to bear. You will know it’s coming, and it will hurt. But you’ll be able to prepare.”

When I was almost at the end, I went back to the prologue and read it again. That prologue had given me a whole different way of guessing the ending but of course it didn't end that way. !
It was truly commendable. I love Amy Harmon's style of writing. You must read it to find it out yourself !
This story is full of emotions, sadness, feelings and how Fate plays it role in our lives. !

Review: Maybe Not

Maybe Not: A Novella - Colleen Hoover

4 Stars.

Maybe Not is a short novella in Maybe series. 

I think it can be read before Maybe Someday as well. 

It was short, cute, sweet and romantic. I would have loved to read more about Warren's life or Bridgette's struggle in this book. but overall it was a nice read. Just the way it is expected by Colleen Hoover. i liked Maybe Someday more than this novella. 

Still, thumbs up !! :-)

Review: Made

Made - J.M. Darhower

5++++ STARS

“Everyone was good at something. Some people painted. Others played music. Corrado just happened to be good at murder. He accepted that. Embraced it. That was who he was. The Kevlar Killer.”

It was my first book by J.M Darhower but now i guess i am gonna dig and find every other book of hers and read all of them within a month for sure !!
I am such a big fan of hers now !! This novel i must say, it felt like the author had poured her heart out in that story.

"Your light is the only thing in this world not tainted by my darkness."

It was truly incredible.
Beautiful, angry, possessive, raw, dark and gritty

It was a bit lengthy but never losing my interest, very captivating.
I loved Corrado as much as i loved Celia :) I felt bad for her that Corrado didn't fulfill her only wish and the way she felt around her nephews.

Still,it was a very beautiful story. And my heart ached to read the last words of the book. Corrado's whole life unfolds in front of us. It was phenomenal the way author plotted all the events of his life.

"What made you this way?"

"Sweetheart, I wouldn't even know where to begin."

Recommended to everyone.

Review: Poles Apart

Poles Apart - Kirsty Moseley

I absolutely loved loved loved this book. Kirsty Moseley has done a fabulous job. ! I have read her book "The boy who sneaks in my bedroom window" as well, and i did like it too, but this one was something beyond 'par excellence' :)
I was so excited to get my hands on this book, I just straightaway dived into it as soon as i got one and finished it within 24 hours. yeah it was such a page turner
I loved the characters a lot. Emma & Carson. Actually, you know what, um i liked Emma and i LOVED Carson :P


The story was very well written. I personally liked it and i guess that's all that matters.

Only one man got behind my defenses. Only one man was allowed to touch me. Only one man was allowed to make me feel like I was in heaven. Carson Matthews.

Emma was a lap dancer, yet a sweet, innocent struggler woman. I really liked her character and the chemistry between Carson & her, but in the end at some points I felt angry at her but may be that was the part of story as she was the one going through all that stuff. so, nevermind.!

Carson was a hot sexy MotoGP racing driving. I loved his character, his caring nature, the way he gave importance to Emma and stood firm for her. Near the very end, he showed his negative side as well,

This was all I was to him. A body, nothing more. Something for him to get his kicks with, just like he did with hundreds of other girls.

but i think he was truly justified for his behavior, after all he still cared & loved her. !!

"POLES APART" was a great read. I would recommend it to everyone :)

Review: Sound of Sirens

Sound of Sirens: (Tales of Skylge #1) - Jen Minkman

(I received an ARC from the Author in exchange for an honest review)

Sound of Sirens was a different and unique story. It was my first experience of reading a book about mythology creatures and all, and i found it really interesting. I felt that the Author Jen Minkman has the ability to absorb her readers in the story and we can practically imagine the places she describes. And i definitely loved the mysterious Island of Skylge.
I also loved the characters of this book, Enna & Royce a lot. They both are from different castes of the island. Royce is an upper-class-Current-elite and Enna is a curious and rebellious Skylger.

"I've allowed my sad, hungry heart to lead me astray and make me fall for the wrong guy."

It has an adequate amount of romance, mystery, fantasy and emotions as well.
Definitely looking forward for the next book. :)

Review: Puddle Jumping

Puddle Jumping - Amber L.  Johnson

5 Artistic Stars
What can i say about this book. It was my first book by Amber L. Johnson and i pretty much loved it.
A sweet, short, beautiful and light-hearted read. I loved it pretty much. Finished it in one day and was glad to read it. A great start and a perfect ending. The characters were amazing and sweet. :-)
Recommended to anyone who likes sweet love stories. :-)


Fifty Shades of Grey - E.L. James

After a huge delimma of "Yes I should/No I shouldn't" finally i ended up in giving it a try.. ! Lets see.. It was the toughest decision of my Book-Life :-P

Review: Nine Minutes

Nine Minutes - Beth Flynn

I loved loved loved this book. Was this the first book by this Author? Can't believe it. Well I had a slightest doubt of what was going to be in the end, but that Relation twist was unpredictable. I loved Grizz <3
Desperately waiting for the next book in this series.
I was so catchy, such a page turner and I must say that Beth Flynn wrote it very nicely. It was very well-written. The way she expressed different events of different time periods merged together, and the way she kept up the suspense and secrets, simply great. She has incredible writing skills..

Review: Nocte

NOCTE (The Nocte Trilogy Book 1) - Courtney Cole

5 Stars
Although i hate cliffhangers but it was good.. A thriller like that is worth to wait for next book.
It was a very well written, full of suspense and emotions. but yeah i must say it reminded me of a Japanese movie translated into english as A Tale of Two Sisters (if anyone has watched it)
It kept me wondering throughout the story what was the secret of Finn. And at some point i was impatient, i was like For God's sake Calla for the love of God read that damn journal fast please. If i were at her place, i would have read such a suspicious thing in a couple of hours,keeping the whole world aside.
It is that kind of book which you want everyone to read so that you can discuss it with every other person.

“I’m doing all I can to stay afloat in a sea of insanity, but I’m drowning more and more each day.”

"Sometimes that’s how life is. A puzzle made up of a million pieces, and when one piece doesn’t exactly fit, it throws the rest of them off.”

This story was just like a puzzle. In the end when you complete that puzzle you get to see the clear picture of that entire plot. But then you find out that one piece is still missing, That's the Cliff...
Waiting desperately for the next book.
Read it for sure. Recommended to everyone.

Review: God-Shaped Hole

God-Shaped Hole - Tiffanie DeBartolo


What a beautiful read it was..!! HUHH... awesome. simply awesome. It was sooo emotional so captivating. It kept me up all night long and i finished it at 5a.m. Now that proves IT WAS AN INCREDIBLE BOOK!!

Jacob and Trixie meet by an ad, Yes, a newspaper ad. Jacob publishes it, and Trixie answers it.

If your intentions are pure,
I'm seeking a friend
for the end
of the world

These are the words of the Ad, and when a book starts with such a paragraph, then....You know it is worth it !!

“It’s easy to plant a seed and sprinkle it with water, but once the sun scorches the ground, and the earth soaks up all the moisture, you’re left with nothing but a thirsty little flower trying desperately to make it out of the dirt.”

“And no matter what anybody says about grief, and about time healing all wounds, the truth is, there are certain sorrows that never fade away until the heart stops beating and the last breath is taken.”

The writer has, no doubt, done an incredible job. It is recommended to everyone who needs a great read with loads of emotion along. It made me cry real bad. I was touched. It was worth a read.

“You wanna know how to make God laugh?”
“Tell him your plans.”

This is a Sad book, this is a depressing book, this is a heart-wrenching book, but don't let these remarks make you give up on this book. It is beautifully-paifully-heart breaking kind of book. You'll love it for sure. !

"A soul never truly loses hope until hope has turned to ashes, or has been buried six feet underground.”

AAH I loved it.

Review: Insidious

Insidious - Aleatha Romig

Can i say i didn't like it that much as compared to the vibe it had all. I am quite choosy about Thriller books. The made me really eager to read it but i didnt find that captivating. I started skipping a bit, and twice i thought to DNF it. But somehow i carried it on and finished it. The plot was just okay. The story was okay but for me a bit way tooo unrealistic. I prefer light Romance books.

Reading progress update: I've read 30%.

NOCTE (The Nocte Trilogy Book 1) - Courtney Cole

Definitely Page Turner !!

Review: Making Faces

Making Faces - Amy Harmon

10++ Stars.
My new Top Favorite. It was just P.E.R.F.E.C.T !!! ♥♥♥

"If God made all our faces, did he laugh when he made me?

Does he make the legs that cannot walk and eyes that cannot see?

Does he curl the hair upon my head 'til it rebels in wild defiance?

Does he close the ears of a deaf man to make him more reliant?

Is the way I look a coincidence or just a twist of fate?

If he made me this way, is it okay, to blame him for the things I hate?

For the flaws that seem to worsen every time I see a mirror,For the ugliness I see in me, for the loathing and the fear.

Does he sculpt us for his pleasure, for a reason I can't see?

If God makes all our faces, did he laugh when he made me?”

What a beautiful sensual and heart touching story it is.. WOW. I loved it. and i just love Amy Harmon. i mean. i wonder how anyone can write such a beautiful perfect story. Truly truly loved it.


“I will spend the rest of my life trying to make you happy, and when you get tired of looking at me, I promise I’ll sing.”

It is my new Top Favorite. A page turner and a roller coaster of emotions.
