I like the premise for "Wicked Sense"; the way the witches are written is excellent! It's good to show the base form of the witchcraft, and not just having a witch be able to do everything possible under the sun magically and it actually took some work to accomplish some of his/her spell work. I had a hard time connecting with the characters, and I felt they were a little flat; especially the side characters. Drake never really grew on me; he just seemed kind of dumb, and in the next books I hope he grows into a man with some strength rather than being a little boy. I did like Skye, but I do hope she starts to become more independent and not worry so much about what others think, and that she will really find herself. I think towards the end of the book, Skye really starts to grow, so I have high hopes for the next books in the series!
I really liked the premise for "The Here and Now". I like the time traveler aspect, and I thought the story could have really been something great, but I felt it didn't really get to the level I think it could. The main characters didn't feel like 18 or so year olds; they seemed more like young teenagers, and they felt static and flat. I see a lot of potential in this story, and it was still an enjoyable read. I will read the next book in the series; since I do have a desire to see the story grow, and I have high hopes that the character development will improve as the characters grow! "The Here and Now" is a quick, easy read and I think it could grow into something great in future books in the series.

I liked that Lacey was in the up-swing of getting her life together. I hate reading about characters staying in a bad situation because they don't have the will to leave, so Breathe Into Me was a nice change; even though Lacey had brief moments. I liked Everett, and I liked that there wasn't really a love triangle. I would have liked a bit more character development, but all in all I thought it was a good story. I like that this was a standalone book, and I hope if there are sequels added later, there won't be an addition of a love triangle, or cheating, or falling back into old habits.

It was good to get a brief glimpse of Lena and Ethan. I never really liked Ridley, she makes a lot of dumb decisions and it annoys me, but I'm willing to try this new series in hopes she grows.up. Also I hope for some more Lena and Ethan scenes
I liked that it was from Chris POV, I like getting the different perspectives from the main characters. Sara is a better woman than me, I would have told him he needs to get rid of those toxic people. I know you want to help, but there needs to be a limit. Especially exes! All it does is create too much drama. If Chris wants to change, he needs to know when enough is enough. All in all it was a good short story with a couple steamy scenes.
I liked it all right, but it wasn't in my top favorites of this series. I felt like the story and the character development was a bit stiff. Gray's personality wasn't the greatest, and I kept waiting for him to show some of himself, but he remained flat. He also seemed very forceful. I did like the idea of this story, and I liked Ellie.
