Book Review: An Unwanted Guest by Shari Lapena-5 Stars

38240386

An Unwanted Guest was my kind of thriller! I did have the killer pegged not long before the book’s reveal, but it’s okay, I didn’t know the motive behind the killer’s murders!

The story takes place in a mountain lodge in the Catskills during a terrible snow storm. Several couples and individuals are staying at the lodge, and due to the storm, the hotel is short-staffed, leaving only the owner and his son to take care of all of the guests the entire weekend. When one woman is found dead under suspicious circumstances, and then another, all of the guests start to freak out, blame each other, and fear for their lives!

The author does a great job at keeping you engaged and questioning the credibility of several of the guests. The story line moved quickly, leaving you breathless and anticipating the next murder! I highly recommend and I look forward to reading more from this author!

Book Review: Lies by T.M. Logan-4 Stars

In one moment, Joe Lynch’s life changes completely. He’s driving home with this young son when they spot his wife’s car at a hotel. William wants to surprise his mommy so of course Joe obliges, only to find her in an argument with one of their friends, Ben. They bicker and Joe knocks Ben unconscious and this is only the start of Joe’s terrifying days to come.

I was completely sucked into this book from the beginning. I HAD to know what was going to happen! It was twisted, fast paced, and full of tension that left me on the edge of my seat!

Lie after lie after lie came pummeling at Joe. The poor guy couldn’t catch a break. The ending completely took me by surprise, and I knocked off a star because I wasn’t fully convinced it was plausible, but I thoroughly enjoyed reading this thriller!

Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the opportunity to read an ARC of “Lies”; all opinions are my own.

Book Review: The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang-5 Stars

Well this was unexpectedly steamy and I loved it! Stella has Asperger’s. She’s brilliant, beautiful, and rich, but she isn’t good with people or relationships, so she hires Michael, a swoon worthy, delicious looking, sweet escort to teach her about sex and how to have a boyfriend.

This was obviously sexy and steamy as we have an escort service situation going on, but it was also really funny and romantic as well as emotional. I really got invested in Stella and Michael’s relationship as well as Stella’s life in general and how she dealt with obstacles while having Asperger’s.

If you’re looking for a hot romance, this is definitely it, but it’s also got some depth with the realness of Stella’s feelings and emotions! The romantic scenes are frequent and the author builds up the anticipation just enough to keep your interest. Stella’s inner struggles with self-perception as well as how others view her just seemed so raw and real and I found myself hurting for her but also cheering her on!ย I highly recommend!

 

Thanks to my sweet friend Jenn at Live, Read, and Prosperย for letting me borrow this amazing book!

Book Review: All Your Perfects by Colleen Hoover-3.5 Stars

I don’t like to do spoilery reviews on my site so this will probably be a very short review so I don’t give too much away.ย I usually love CoHo’s books, I want to say that first off, but this was my least favorite.

All Your Perfects tells the story of Graham and Quinn-their first meeting, the falling in love, the marriage, and the absolute wreck of a life they are both living in the present tense.The chapters alternate between THEN and NOW telling their story. I only liked the last 15% of the book, and the “THEN” chapters. On a very small level I can relate to Quinn in one aspect but overall I found her actions and treatment of Graham detestable. Obviously Graham is not without fault here either but Quinn, Quinn just really did me over.

I did not find myself as emotionally invested in this book as I have with all her other books. Like I said, the last 15% was amazing, it wrecked me with every emotion I have, but it wasn’t enough to redeem the book as a whole. I do hope for a sequel though to finish out the rest of their story!
