Haven (Chronicles of Warshard #1) by Katherine Bogle

Review:

Haven: Chronicles of Warshard - Katherine Bogle

Princess Haven was never meant to be Queen.

Her immortality has saved her time and time again, but when the last of her royal family dies at her feet, she is next in line to rule a nation on the brink of war. With no formal training on how to be Queen, Haven must rise to the occasion with the help of her best friends, and personal guard, or risk losing everyone she has ever loved.

With war to the West, and no escape to the East, the evil tyrant Kadia sets her sights on the six kingdoms. Haven’s neighbors are quick to fall under the swords of Kadia’s shadow soldiers, leaving a sea of bodies and a clear path to Haven’s only home.

As Kadia’s obsession with Haven mounts, little time remains, and Haven must make a choice; join together with her fellow Royals, and test her immortality in a final stand against the evil Queen, or flee across the sea to a foreign republic in hopes of salvation. Both choices have a cost. Both plans could go awry. Haven must decide quickly, or she might be the only one left.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I heard so much about this book I had to read it for myself to see what all the buzz was all about.

Political upheaval and transition into power Haven has a lot to deal with. Although some of the background could have used more development and Haven more personality.

I felt like the story and the world was intriguing, there was some intimacy love scenes but they felt a little off and not quite mature the book wasn't quite YA or NA but somewhere between.

Haven has a lot of potential for later installments to improve but it was a decent read.

Stealing His Thunder (Masters of Adrenaline #1) by Sparrow Beckett

Review:

Stealing His Thunder (Masters of Adrenaline) - Sparrow Beckett

Nothing gives Addison Kennedy a rush like stealing cars. The Lexus was the perfect target, but before she can get its engine purring, she's cold-cocked unconscious. When she comes to, she finds herself on a bed with a blonde, tattooed god standing over her.
 
Fox Larson is shocked to discover the thief he knocked out is actually a hot girl. Bringing her home may not have been the smartest move, but he wasn’t about to leave an unconscious and defenseless woman in a parking garage. Besides, if she’s part of an auto theft crew infringing on his territory, he needs to pump her for information.
 
However, Addison has personal drive that won’t be denied and she’s desperate to prove Fox’s group needs her skills. Submitting to his kinks in the bedroom is a hot yet complicated bonus. When a big job goes bad, and Addison finally gets her chance, will she succeed in stealing his thunder?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I didn't particularly care for this book, I especially didn't care for Add or Fox..

These two opposites attract individuals were just too opposite for me despite their likes that bring them together.

Most of all it was the sexual half of the interactions that got to me the most.

The fact that Fox likes unwilling partners and women who don't enjoy what he does to them while having sex with them really turned me off.

Adds tolerance for being what is essentially victimized by him and his behavior toward her really bothered me to the point that I hated their involvement, I hated their relationship, I hated Adds draw to him and that his violent nature is what really made her like him most.

The book is well written it just wasn't my cup of tea.
