Pru Harris is a boat captain of a boat tour that’s located at San Francisco. Despite being new at the area, she’s still manage to in love with her new apartment, Neighbours and her newly adopted pet dog which she name it Thor.

Finn O’Riley is a pub owner who always makes time for his friends and not forgetting he’s a HOTTIE too. Finn manage the pub with his younger Brother, Sean, whom Finn’s been protecting since at a young age. Pru is on a Mission. And her Mission includes to help Finn finds his happiness, true love. But Pru is very attracted to Finn and she could not/ would not allow herself to fall for Finn because the secrets that she kept from him will change everything between them.

“Thor! Hush!” she said, eyes on Finn. Thor didn’t hush, but she couldn’t concentrate on the dog. “I’m so sorry”, she said again, finally giving in the urge to touch Finn, running her hands up and down on his back, trying not to notice that under her fingers he was solid muscle. And thanks to his Low riding jeans having slid down his hips when he’d bent over, she could see an inch of smooth sleek skin and it made her stupid. “I didn’t mean to crush your….. er, twig and berries”

Seriously, when I read that part I burst out laughing out real loud! I totally enjoy this book. It started out slow and I wouldn’t deny that I’m bored initially. But the book picked up the pace and it’s getting hilarious when Pru’s brain couldn’t function well whenever she’s near Finn. Plus that dog of hers is a major plus point! The secondary characters are very well liked. There aren’t any villains in the book. Like those freaking ow/om drama. None whatsoever. The book is basically about how Finn and Pru gotten together and how Pru’s been hiding her secrets from Finn and her internal struggle with herself. Just wanna say that I’m Glad that I picked up this book.

Book Review on Twisted Up by Erin Nicholas 

This is my first book by this author and I can’t comment much. The thoughts that I’ll be reviewing are on the plot itself.


Avery Sparks is a master at controlling chaos and she gets plenty of opportunities as fire chief and head of emergency management in her hometown of Chance, Nebraska.

Jake Mitchell enlist in the Army National Guard and became a nationally recognised leader in disaster recovery.

Avery and Jake had been in a relationship before Jake left Chance without a goodbye. Now, Avery and Jake must team up to help their hometown weather a siege of violent storms. But it’s clear to them both that nature isn’t the only force they’ll have to reckon with. 

I spent a night finishing up this book and I chided myself what an idiot I am. When I first read the chapter, I almost gave up the book. But I just continue so that I’ll know what really happen between Avery and Jake’s parents. Avery had spent her growing up with Jake’s Mother. Her own birth Mother had discarded her and her Grandmother had been abusing her emotionally. When she turn 18, her Grandmother packed her belongings and ask Avery to leave as she’s no longer her obligation. Avery’s upset but she went to look for Jake when she learnt that he’s gone and the only Mother figure she ever known, Jake’s Mother, ask her to leave Chance. Avery is upset that she’s being betrayed and she left without any backward glance. Now. Avery and Jake didn’t see each other for almost a decade and they happen to saw each other at the shelter and he kissed her when the place went dark. Since from that moment, he’s been kissing her whenever he saw her. And vice versa, she let him. I almost lost my respect for Avery when I read them having sex at their former school’s shed when they’re supposed to pick something up. My turnmoil is “Where’s your self respect girl?” As for Jake, he’s a seriously diagnosed Hero complex character. He’s obsessed with Avery cos the women who cross his path are willing to kneel and worship him as god but Avery wanted nothing to do with him or rather didn’t worship him like the other women did. So this Jake guy is another no no for me. Amazingly, I dislike both the main characters in the book. Next are the names popping out in the book. I know the author is trying to introduce all the characters for the next book in the series but sometimes it’s too much and many from the start. 

My conclusion, I won’t stop at this book. I’ll give the next book in this series a go and I’ll decide whether I’ll read this author’s future works or not.

 

First blog post

I’ve been playing with some blogging sites and it’s very hard to come across to something which is easy and I will love the theme site. WordPress had been appearing on my screen when I Google about which blogging sites to use.

This site is nothing about significant issues. Just something about my thoughts and mostly are about books thoughts. I like reading books. I love reading books are more accurate. The invention of eBooks are lifesaver for me cos it’s light and easy to bring around. All you need is a tablet or your smart phone or even the devices that’s created just for reading.

The genre of books that I read are mostly suspense, thriller, romance suspense, romance, supernatural. YA, fantasy, sci fi are mostly either the plot are intriguing or someone highly recommend to me.

I’m a sucker for HEA endings. Even if there aren’t, the plot must be able to suck me into the book and feel sad by leaving it. That’s how I rate a good book. I dislike weak characters or maybe I should say I dislike weak heroine. Whenever I read a romance book involving weak heroine, I’ll force myself to continue the book or just skim through the whole thing. Characters building are very important as well as the plot. So if the plot is good but weak characters, the book is still a so so read and vice versa.

Alright enough about my hellos and hope that through here, I can know more about readers like me. So that we’re able to introduce more books to each other.
