A first Love Never Dies- Margaret Taylor

***Review From Laura From The Nerd Girl Page ***

*This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review*

I just want to start by saying I loved this book and I love Margaret Taylor’s brain! This story was different and it’s the second book I have read by this author that has given me a new original story or twist.

Janel is returning to her hometown for her high school reunion. It has been twenty years since left and never came back. She takes her second in command Moren with her for support, because not only was Janel bullied horrifically by these people in high school she’s also there for a reason that has nothing to do with her reunion. Moren isn’t even human, Janel now works for Sci-Corp, she hasn’t stepped foot on earth in years. Can Jake, they guy she secretly loved through high school give her what she needs on her short trip back before her time is up?

Janel is strong, independent and a serious heroin. She’s worked her ass off to get where is and she doesn’t take crap from anyone. Moren, every time he… Continue reading

Wolfs Paradox by Margaret Taylor (Review By Laura)

Wolfs Paradox- Margaret Taylor

***Review From Laura From The Nerd Girl Page ***

*This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review*

Kathy is a writer, but her stories aren’t all down to her own imagination. Her characters come to her and tell her their stories. She never knows who or what will turn up and how long they will be staying for. But they always leave, except Ronon, the first stranger to end up in Kathy’s world and who has not yet left. Kathy obviously has a gift, one she has never understood and hasn’t questioned often, because who would she ask without sounding crazy? But with the arrival of a new character with a strange request the truth of who she is comes to light.

I liked the originality of this story, I am reading another book by this author and that story is refreshingly new to me too. The pace never lets up in this book and I found myself finishing it in one sitting. The only part of this story I did not completely like (I did not dislike though) is the main character, the book is written from her point of view… Continue reading

004

*** Review From Amy Conley For The Nerd Girl Page***

Samantha is a college student returning home for the summer to try and repair the relationship between her and her mother. She never planned on falling in love but that’s exactly what happens only it’s with two guys who she soon finds out their brothers!! Samantha has to choose between the two and figure out which guy she loves the most and could spend forever with….

My Review:
I enjoyed the book very much there were a few scenes I wish the author could have went into a little more detail on but otherwise it’s a fascinating book to read! There were quite a few shocking scenes (how could there not be when a character finds herself in love with two guys and finds out their brothers) and some very emotional ones too (Better have those tissues handy because your going to need them) that I didn’t see coming at all. I found the book to be fast paced but very enjoyable the author never got off track or made things too confusing. My favorite part of the book is the ending it’s so beautiful and romantic and leaves you… Continue reading

pRevealing Hamilton by Sarah Jayne Carr (Review By Amy)

005

***Review From Amy Conley For The Nerd Girl Page***

Amelia Hamilton is trying to make a new life for herself and forget her haunting past but it seems life has other plans in store for her. Surrounded by secretive friends, an abusive and hateful boyfriend, and a demanding job. Things spiral out of control after a trip to the beach and Amelia soon learns one decision can affect many more and she’s in deeper than she ever thought she would be..

My Review:
Even though it’s a short story it’s a very interesting read that piques your curiosity just enough that your left wanting a whole lot more it’s a fantastic prequel that gets readers ready to dive right into book one (cause let’s face it with a ending like that you have to read on to find out what happens next.. right? LOL)!! I enjoyed reading this book and look forward to reading more books by this author in the future!

Beware The Wolf (A Falling Novel) by Laura Prior (Review By Laura)

003

***Review From Laura From The Nerd Girl Page ***

*This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review*

This book picks up exactly where the first one left off and throws you straight in with the action and Jasmine deciding to stay wherever it is she sent herself to, so she does not have to go home and face the awkward situation that is her love life. After killing a bunch of demons she makes some new werewolf friends with a story of a prophecy, could Jasmine be who they’ve been waiting for? She believes she is there for a reason, she just doesn’t know what that reason is.

This story is a lot more action packed than the first one and the beautiful thing? It’s the girls kicking some serious ass throughout. Laura really knows how to write a strong female lead that is relatable. The guys really take a back seat in this book with Jasmine doing all the heavy lifting throughout when it comes to being the protector.

This book did not grip me the same way the first one did, however I do need the third book now. Please. Thanks. The beginning and… Continue reading

Fourteen-year-old Breena Taljain’s dreary existence in the slums of Purgaire comes to a sudden end when a chance encounter with a criminal mastermind known as the Patriarch goes horridly wrong. His assault on her for refusing to pay for her mother’s addiction leaves her comatose and teetering on the edge of life and death.

There, Breena must learn to find power in courage, hope, and love to overcome fiends of hatred bent on permanently ending her existence. With justice burning in his heart, Galbrecht begins a race against time to seek out the Patriarch in the underworld before Breena loses her struggle… Continue reading

Full Circle: The End of the Beginning by Michael “Hawk” Spisak (Review By Julie)

001

 

***Review From Julie  from The Nerd Girl Page***

I received this book from the author in exchange for a review.

The author, Michael Hawk Spisak describes Full Circle: The End of the Beginning as a devastating introspective into Native American culture and ceremony, spirituality, humanity, and society at large. The story is told from the perspective of Jackson Thermal, a white/Native American mixed blood.

In his acknowledgement, the author is intentionally banal and hoping to “piss off” and “offend” his readers. This is followed by a 12-page introduction that I would describe as an angry diatribe that presents biased opinion as the absolute truth that the reader is too misguided to have previously known. If the author’s extremist views haven’t “pissed” you off at this point, you might be tempted to continue reading this book. The introduction did northing to make me care about the author’s point of view or give me reason to accept the veracity of his statements, and his story did nothing to make me care about his characters or what happens to them.

There are many reasons I didn’t enjoy reading this book:

The plot rambles disjointedly–from a spiritual gathering in which Jackson participates… Continue reading
