Summary

River
As the perilous journey across a country I’d long thought destroyed begins, I don’t know who I am anymore or what I’m becoming. My abilities grow stronger with each passing day, as does the fear of what comes next. All I know is that I will do anything to avoid becoming like Lucifer, and to protect those I love, even if that means protecting them from me.

Kobal
No matter what it takes, I will keep River safe, even if my actions end up driving a wedge between us. River is mine to protect, no matter how hard that might be to do now that our journey has begun. I won’t stop until Lucifer is destroyed, won’t stop until I claim my throne, and she will be by my side when I do. It’s all just a matter of keeping her alive until then.

There are four books in this paranormal romance series which is now complete. Not all things will be resolved in this book. Due to sexual content, violence, and language, this book is recommended for listeners 18+ years of age.

Review

Carved, picks-up right where Good Intentions left off. River and Kobal’s relationship is just a wishy-washy as it was in the first book. One second they’re hot and all over each other and the next second one of them is somehow offending the other, I guess they have a normal-ish relationship. I am happy that this isn’t just a power couple that is completely head over heels in love with one another. It makes everything very refreshing to see a normal type of relationship, as normal as a relationship can be when one is a human, and the other is from hell.

River has been working on her craft, a wondrous gift from her dad, Lucifer. With River working hard to perfect her abilities, she’s working even harder at trying to save herself from becoming like her father. Alongside a group of abled humans who have ranked high among the classes in the camp and Kobal along with his companions, it shows just how when the time comes everyone can work together, we’d hope. I enjoy seeing both River and Kobal working hard to accomplish one main goal, but at times I felt that the story could’ve moved along a little faster.

If anyone checks out the story, let me know if you have the same feelings as I did. From the normal like relationships to the trust, they have to have with one another during post-apocalyptic times, down to the heartfelt moments gives you a warming feeling, and makes you believe everything will work out perfectly fine, only the next book will tell.


Thanks for stopping by to check my review on Carved by Brenda K. Davies. Until next time, be sure to Read THS!

Pennies Review

Pennies (Book #1 of the Dollar Series) by Pepper Winters

Published: July 2016 Genre: Romance/Mystery

E-book: 300 pages

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Amazon        Barnes & Noble       Kobo

Where do I begin? There are so many things I could say, but I refuse to spoil the book for you. Pepper Winters is known as the Queen of Darkness, every book I have read by her has taken me on a emotional roller coaster and still I continue to read.

Pennies is about a girl that is stolen, stolen from the life she knows and dragged to a world that is not at all pretty. She becomes a slave, a slave to a man that takes pleasure in doing the unthinkable. She suffers this ill fate for some time, at moments wishing things would just be over with, and yet she holds out until the day Elder Prest enters her life. Both Pim and Elder share similar qualities they are stubborn, strong, intelligent, and caring but the obstacle that keeps them apart are their issues. They are two broken souls with traumatizing pasts and a questioning future.

This first book is set-up perfectly, it is a show burner romance that is not at all romantic. While reading, the events that take place are so vivid that you believe you have lived through them yourself. The writing rakes you into the book where you can clearly see everything act out in front of your eyes. If you enjoy suspense, romance, action, and thrillers with a dark side I definitely recommend this read.

Stuck in a Rut

Have you guys ever been in a reading rut? I am a little late on my announcement but I was in the worst reading funk of the year. I, like so many other readers had so many books on my shelves as well as in my kindle app, barnes and noble app and my audibles app that I was so eager to read, and listen to. For about a month I could not read anything, every book I picked up I sat back down, every time I started an audio book I stopped it because I just couldn’t concentrate. I felt so lost for what seemed like forever, I didn’t know what to do in order to get out of the cycle. One day about 2 weeks ago I decided to go back and reread a book that I felt I’d fallen in love with years ago, this I believe was the best answer to ending my book drought. I am so happy to say that I am back and reading in full force!

P.S. I think I will do a little book review on the novel that got me out of my funk, it was a little steamy (I am not exaggerating on the small steam) number and I remembered a lot of the details but some parts still registered as new information. It was very interesting to go back and reread everything as if it were something new I found some parts that I still liked other portions I would’ve changed, but you guys will read about all of that later on.

P.P.S. Check us out on Facebook @readths.

Until next time,
