Quick Review – Midnight Star by Karpov Kinrade

This book is addicting, thrilling and magically creative!

You will want to finish this book in one sitting, and you’ll want to reread it again and again! Karpov Kinrade does an excellent job at creating an epic sequel that leaves readers wanting more. You wouldn’t expect a sequel to be better than the original, but KK keeps building on their story and leaving me breathless!

Arianna is a wonderfully built character who has a personality and a mind of her own. She isn’t your cookie cutter YA or adult novel star, she’s an earth shattering, beautifully written character! She has many layers and will surprise you on her journey!

The twists and turns of the plot will make any reader not want to put it down. This story is anything but boring, and that made me love it! I hate a story that slows down and creates a sense of boredom, this story makes sure you don’t have that!

Reading this book is important for the series and I would suggest reading the first novel if you are going to pick this series up. This book contains important information regarding background history of our realms and main character, but it needs the background of the first novel to serve it justice.

Five out of five stars! Karpov Kinrade wows again! A must read for fantasy lovers!

Quick Review – Vampire Girl by Karpov Kinrade

Vampire Girl is another smash hit by Karpov and Kinrade that will not disappoint!

There are seven men and they are the seven sins of hell, and man does it get hot!

But what’s different from other books about hell and sins, you might ask? This isn’t your typical burning inferno, the residents are different fantastical/mythological creatures – vampires, fae, the likes.

Our main character Arianna is a determined, strong willed girl. But, (there’s always a but) she has to marry one of the demons from hell. Despite this novel being in a fantasy setting, Karpov and Kinrade wrote it in a way you could believe it would happen. Arianna seems so real, and you get attached to her pretty quickly – you feel for what’s going to happen to her.

Overall, Karpov Kinrade does a fantastic job. I can’t wait for the next book – I’m desperate to get my hands on it!

*****This isn’t a YA novel, so keep that in mind when reading fellow bookworms!*****

Quick Review – Lexington and 42nd by Kim Carmody

“Lexington and 42nd was a hot, steamy romance that follows a realistic plot.

First of all, I loved the fact that this book was semi-realistic – it took time for the characters’ relationship to build! These characters didn’t just look at each other and fall in love. They went through romantic stages, they fought, they took in considerations like life choices and all the fun parts about being an adult before they made a decision. And as boring as that sounds, Kim Carmody made it thrilling and addicting!

These characters were also made very realistic. They weren’t perfect, cookie-cutter characters – they had flaws and reasoning behind their actions. This made the book more interesting, since these characters had problems to face that wasn’t just ‘wow some guy doesn’t think I’m hot’!

As a sports lover, this book was also quite the charmer. I don’t like football, but it gave a realistic view into the life of a sport’s fan (even if Emma isn’t the biggest fan in the world).

Now, the “problems”:
While there was conflict in the story, it wasn’t very big. It was briefly touched on and seemed more like the side plot of the story. But, this is mainly a romance novel so it is understandable. This conflicting conflict might bug some readers.

Our main character was incredibly emotional, but that could just be how the character was built. I just find that having an emotional character might bug some readers (even though it shows she is a well built character to other readers).

Overall, I enjoyed this novel. It impressed me! I am definitely going to pick up the second book if I ever find it!

Five out of five stars!
I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads.”
