Review of #60 The Golden Couple (The Samantha Project #2) by Stephanie Karpinske

In this action-packed second installment of The Samantha Project series, Samantha and Erik go on a search to find a way to save themselves from the genetic time bomb ticking away in their cells. Along the way, they discover a shocking secret--one they wish they were never told! 

Although Samantha's boyfriend, Colin, is back now, her feelings for Erik are getting stronger by the minute. It isn't long before she finally learns the real reason why she can't resist Erik. But only after she's gone too far with him! So far that Colin may never forgive her. 

GlobalLife Genetics continues to pursue Samantha and they'll stop at nothing to get her. Sam still doesn't understand what GlobalLife's plan is for her but she knows it's something big. And she knows it isn't good.

My review:  =]

Hello again! I could finally post this review because the internet has been acting up lately.

First of all, Stephanie Karpinske is one my favorite authors and 'The Golden Couple' definitely blew me away!

The way she writes about the character, the flow of the story line and the chemistry between Sam + Colin and Sam + Erik and the building tension between Sam and Erik was absolutely explosive!

The second installment of The Samantha Project definitely surpasses my expectation and Stephanie Karpinske should be at the top with great authors like J.K. Rowling and Richelle Mead.

The Golden Couple actually introduced more characters into the picture as to the big players that funded The Samantha Project.

Expect awesome spy-like scenes, the jealousy and running emotions in my favorite main character, Sam, and the epic journey that Sam and friends had to go through just to stop their own ticking time bomb from shutting down their own bodies.

The Golden Couple is a thrilling ride, like a roller coaster with fantastic twist and turns that makes your stomach go, "Woohoo!".

I know I've said this before but I'll gladly say it again. 
Stephanie...YOU'RE AWESOME!

Review of #59 Crushing by Elena Dillon

Hey guys! I know its been really long since I've updated my blog. I've been busy with my college assignments and the internet has been really crappy. I can't even load the browser and it sucks. Anyways, I'm so happy to present Crushing by Elena Dillon. (P.S. She's oh-so-awesome)

As a pampered and adored daughter of a wealthy Southern family Rory's life was seemingly perfect until her troubled childhood crush moves back in across the street forcing her to choose between him and the life that has been chosen for her. 

As if that isn't enough, her quiet island town has turned dangerous. A good friend has gone missing, lending truth to the rumors of a serial kidnapper. In her quest to help she becomes a target and will have to make choices about love, friendship and the inevitable sacrifice that they both require.

My review:

Crushing is unlike any other books that I've read.

The intro is awesome, the buildup is awesome, and the ending the awesome.
Basically, everything about 'Crushing' is AWESOME.

I love the writing style because it flows really nicely and smoothly. The story line is absolutely adorable and breathtaking at all the perfect moments.

It really is an engaging read and you'll love every dip and turn of this roller coaster.

You can't help but fall in love with all the characters in the book because you just love them.

The chemistry between Rory and Gage is absolutely electrifying! 
There's so much mystery that surrounds Gage's character and you're constantly wondering whether Rory should trust him or not.

Take a look at the fantastic cover and the synopsis of it. My review of Heavenly Hell will be down below! 

Heavenly Hell
by Aria Williams

Summary from Goodreads:

You'd think being stuck in the body of a beautiful seventeen year old girl forever would be a gift. But when you are fallen, it is more like a curse. Indiana was a beautiful angel, enjoying the perks of Heaven, until she was tricked by a demon to fall in love with him. She was forced to fall from Heaven and remain in her seventeen year old form, banished to Earth, for all of eternity.

Now, unable to cope with her banishment, she is a seemingly normal sev
enteen year old girl by day, while she spends her nights punishing men for the wrongs they have committed against women.

Although Indiana has lived on Earth for thousands of years, she recently settled into a small town, where she has finally been able to make some lasting friendships. When a handsome, mysterious boy comes to town, Indiana knows something is not right. He might end up her ally, or she might end up in the fight of her life.

My review: =)

First of all, the cover is absolutely stunning. 

I love the electric blue, the background and the wings. It's really beautiful and it was the cover who'd caught my attention.

The story on the other hand has its good and bad side.

I loved the starting part. It was eye catching and the scene really called out to me because it shows a kickass girl kicking an a-hole. 

I loved how Aria described how the main character, Indy threatens the teacher who molested her close friend.

That was way cool.

The story was pretty nice until Nate  (he's the handsome, mysterious boy) comes into the picture.

He's all stone cold and stuff. It was kinda cliche and it gets annoying at times.

Not only that, the transition between conversations are really undefined. I get confused at times and I feel it needs more editing.

Not only that, the chemistry between Indy and Nate is kinda non-existent.

The games that they play is seriously weird. (They play weird games to show that they hate each other but don't wanna tell anyone)

Anyways, I give points for trying and the idea behind the story of Indy taking matters to her own hands in new for me so I believe this is one of the perks.

The ending is terrible because it was like a sudden stop. I have problems with the writing style but maybe its just me.

I give 3 out of 5 stars for Heavenly Hell.
Aria Williams definitely have the talent but with more editing, Heavenly Hell will be a great read.
