The Kingmaker (Powerplay #2)

The Kingmaker

The Kingmaker is the second book in the Powerplay series and it reminds me of one of my favorite programmes Scandal. I really enjoyed this book because it is a great mix of both politics and romance and I enjoy watching powerful men fall in love. Dereks's character was a powerful alpha male who sticks to his beliefs and is a true born leader and I loved that he could be ruthless in power games, but he was equally sweet and romantic with the woman he loved. London's character was strong and independent and I loved the fact that she never felt sorry for herself or let anyone pity her, she made her decisions and took the responsibility for them. This was my first time reading a book by Selena Laurence and I really enjoyed her style of writing and the way she makes her characters come to life. The chemistry between Derek and London was scorching hot and I enjoyed that their relationship was based around more than just their physical relationship. I really did enjoy this book, but I felt that something was missing and I do not exactly know what it is. Overall this was a brilliant read and I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

Rating: 4/5

Accidental Seal (Seal Brotherhood #1)

Accidental Seal

I am generally person who love books based on Seals as I love the alpha male hero as much as the next girl, but this book was beyond disappointing and boring and it took me so long to complete which made me begin to dislike the book even more. Let's begin with Kyle who is on a mission to save his best friend from danger and keeps getting distracted due to his raging hormones, that is definitely not a characteristic of a Navy Seal. He is also continuously an ass to Christy  and keeps on putting her life in danger especially when he knows he has bad guys after him. Then there is Christy, I think she is the worst female led character I have ever read, she goes and falls in love with a man ,who attacks her in the first meeting, after sleeping with him a couple of times. She also continues to run after Kyle even when he is treating her poorly which ends up making her a clingy and weak character who has no backbone at all. The writing in this book was horrible, it was just so boring and unable to captivate the readers attention with the bad use of similes to describe irrelevant situations. The chemistry between Kyle and Christy was weak and it flt to constructed and manual and I hated the fact that there was no substance in their relationship or love because it only seemed to be about the physical relationship. Overall this was  a long waste of my time read and I definitely would not recommend it to anyone.

Rating: 1.5/5

Hotel Hookup: Chicago ( Hotel Hookup #3)

Hotel Hookup: Chicago

Firstly, I personally thought that this  book was a complete waste of my time and effort and I regret that I even reading it. It was my first time reading a book by Annabelle Snow and I completely disliked her writing style, I felt that she described everything in the book in extreme details and that ended up becoming very annoying and boring when you have to read about every little thing in the setting. This book lacked a story as well as depth in characters and the single point of view style of writing made it even more one dimensional. I personally did not see the point of this book because even the ending felt incomplete to me. The one thing I did enjoy in the book was the chemistry between Clark and Hannah, but that was about it. I would not recommend this book if you looking for something substantial to read.

Rating: 1.5/5
