Juliet Young always writes letters to her mother, a world-traveling photojournalist. Even after her mother's death, she leaves letters at her grave. It's the only way Juliet can cope.

Declan Murphy isn't the sort of guy you want to cross. In the midst of his court-ordered community service at the local cemetery, he's trying to escape the demons of his past.

When Declan reads a haunting letter left beside a grave, he can't resist writing back. Soon, he's opening up to a perfect stranger, and their connection is immediate. But neither Declan nor Juliet knows that they're not actually strangers. When life at school interferes with their secret life of letters, sparks will fly as Juliet and Declan discover truths that might tear them apart.
This is a charming story. I like the element of writing to someone that you don't know and being able to just be completely honest with them.

This book follows two characters. Juliet and Declan.

Juliet was a good girl who was following her mother's steps into photography. That is, until her mother dies in a car accident that killed her.

Declan was a boy with an abnormal childhood who does something that gives him a record. With a record, everyone just sees him as a bad boy who is going to end up just like his father.

The two meet by a letter Juliet wrote to her mother and left it on her grave. Declan finds it while cleaning up the graveyard for his community service. It all begins when he responds to the letter.

This book had a lot of emotions in it. I wouldn't call this book a romance novel. I feel like the relationship between Juliet and Declan in this book isn't romantic at all.  Well, it isn't until the last page.

This book felt real. All the events that took place in this book definitely feel like they could really happen. The characters were extremely likable. There wasn't one that I didn't like. I even liked the mean step dad.

I can't wait to read more by Brigid!

The second the whip was placed in my hand, I snapped.

I couldn't turn away.

I needed this.

The man I fought for so long has returned, more feral than before.

Will Rome still love me?

Or will she leave?
This book was the best book in the series. Literally. I could not put it down for the life of me. I finished it within 24 hours. It's freaking amazing!

So many things happen in this book and I don't want to spoil them. Just be prepared to fall off your seat with all the drama and action.

I cannot get over this series. It's bumped up to my favorites list. I read this series within a week of time and I kind of wish I didn't read them so fast because I'm sad it's over now.

I mean, unless Victoria Quinn is going to bless us with more Rome and Calloway in the future!!

I'm not going to go into detail about this book because so much happens and I don't want to spoil it for anymore. It's literally the best book in this series. Just read it and love it.

I gave up everything for Rome.

The one woman I couldn't live without.

But could I keep my promise and turn my back on everything?

Could I really forsake being a Dom?

Or will I pull her into the darkness with me anyway?
Like I said in my last review for this series, I'm flying through these books! I just cannot get enough of Rome and Calloway. I'm a bit obsessed.

This book finally really touched on the BDSM subject more than the previous books did. It wasn't a strong element but it was definitely present.

I was also correct with the drama and action. They have been picking up as the books go on so I'm thrilled to see what the last book will throw at me.

This book made me a little bit angry. The ending is not how I wanted it to go and I'm very disappointed in Calloway. I do not condone cheating in any sort of way and for Calloway to think what he is doing is okay makes me dislike him a little bit.

All-in-all, this was a great book and I can't wait to see what happens when Rome finds out what Calloway is doing behind her back.

I hope she beats his ass.

I know I'm never going to change.

I was born in the darkness, and that's exactly where I'll remain.

Rome is sweet, gentle, and vanilla.

But I'll change all of that.

I'll show her who I really am.

And slip that black diamond onto her finger.
I finished this book is hardly any time at all. I'm finding that this series is going to be pretty easy to get through.

Again, this book isn't heavy with the BDSM element. I'm not minding it though. I feel like once it's completely introduced it's going to change everything.

This book contains some drama. There are lies. Secrets.

The characters haven't changed since the first book. Rome is still a headstrong woman that doesn't like to get bossed around. Calloway still wants to dominate Rome and make her his sub. She still doesn't even know about the dominate side of him until the beans are spilled by Christopher (her brother).

I'm really enjoying this series and I'm wishing the books were a little bit longer but I'm not going to complain because they're loaded with so many wonderful qualities.

This book was sexy, dramatic and a bit enticing at times. There's a little bit more action in this book than the first. Which tells me there's going to be a big climax coming in the future!

Definitely picking up the next one ASAP!

I was standing at the bar and waiting for a friend when it happened.

When my life changed forever.

She strutted inside with her head held high with grace, not pretentiousness. With legs that reached her neck, and an hourglass frame perfect for gripping, she got me hard instantly.

And those green eyes got the rest of my body hard too.

Mistaking me for the man who cheated on her friend, she walked up to me, those green eyes burning with fire, and she slapped me so hard my skin bubbled.

And damn, it felt good.

She slapped me two more times, using her petite size to gain momentum as her palm crushed into my skin.

I never wanted it to end.

I'd never met a woman who made pain feel so good. I'd never met a woman as strong as myself. I'd never met a woman I wanted to dominate more.

I'd never met a woman like her.

Rome Moretti.

My next submissive.

Isis Blake hasn’t fallen in love in three years, forty-three weeks, and two days. Or so she thinks.

The boy she maybe-sort-of-definitely loved and sort-of-maybe-definitely hated has dropped off the face of the planet in the face of tragedy, leaving a Jack Hunter–shaped hole. Determined to be happy, Isis fills it in with lies and puts on a brave smile for her new life at Ohio State University.

But the smile lasts only until he shows up. The menace from her past—her darkest secret, Nameless—is attending OSU right alongside her. And he’s whispering that he has something Isis wants—something she needs to see to move forward. To move on.

Isis has always been able to pretend everything is okay. But not anymore.

Isis Blake might be good at putting herself back together.

But Jack Hunter is better.

This trilogy was highly disappointing. I thought it was going to get better because I sort of liked the second book. Nope. I was wrong.

If anything, it got worse. The stupid humor in this book was not funny. The characters are not likeable. And I couldn't stand the main characters at all.

I'm terribly mad that this series wasn't good. I've been hyping it up in my head for the longest time. And now, I'm just really disappointed and in a possible reading slump because of these books.

Nothing in this book really made sense. The scenes were all jumpy and it was hard to keep up with what was actually going on.

October/Birthday Book Haul:

3:43:00 PM 0 Comments

October was a great month. It was my birthday and I celebrated turning twenty-four by buying a lot of books. Shocker, I know. And in all seriousness, my hauls will not be this big anymore. I'm going to have a limit of buying five books a month. I just have way too many books on my TBR and I just keep adding to that list.

What books did you buy this month? Which new releases were your favorite? Leave your answers in the comments below!

Review: Forget Me Always by Sara Wolf

Beautiful Bastard Forget Me Always

All warfare is deception. Even in high school.

It’s been three years, twenty-five weeks, and five days since Isis Blake fell in love, and if she has it her way, it’ll stretch into infinity. Since then, she’s punched Jack Hunter— her nemesis-turned-maybe-something-more—in the face, survived a brutal attack by her mom’s abusive ex thanks to Jack’s heroics, and then promptly forgotten all about him.

The one bright spot for Isis is Sophia, the ephemeral girl who shares Isis’s hospital stay as well as a murky past with Jack. But as Isis’s memories return, she finds it harder and harder to resist what she felt for Jack, and Jack finds it impossible to stay away from the only girl who’s ever melted the ice around his heart.

As the dark secrets surrounding Sophia emerge, Isis realizes Jack isn’t who she thought he was. He’s dangerous. But when Isis starts receiving terrifying emails from an anonymous source, that danger might be the only thing protecting her from something far more threatening.

Her past.
