Once Perfect by Cecy Robson ( 4 out of 5 stars)

I enjoyed this book a lot! I liked both of the main characters, and I felt they were complete characters, and not just stock characters.  I liked how they met and the nightclub scenes, and I happen to enjoy books that have MMA type storylines, so those scenes were interesting to me and added to my enjoyment of Evie and Mateo's story.  I liked how Mateo was a sweetheart, and he still maintained his alpha maleness.  I did think it was a bit weird how long it took for Evie to understand her situation because I felt like she should have known what was going on; there were a lot of clues, and especially since she's a nursing student.  I look forward to the next books in the series, and I hope there will be more of Evie and Mateo's story.

Review for Stitching Snow by R.C Lewis (5 out of 5 stars)

Oooh I loved this!  I really enjoyed the mix of fairy tale with the mechanical, futuristic elements; it was fun to have the dwarfs as robots!  I really liked how this book opened; I really liked Essie's characteristics, and I liked how Essie and Dane meet.  It was good that even though it is similar to the story Snow White; it still has plenty of differences to stand out as different, and I for one enjoyed the differences.  This doesn't seem to be a series, but I definitely would enjoy another book with these characters.  Great read!

Review for The Night Visitor by Dianne Emley (3 out 5 stars)

I liked this book, but it was fairly depressing, so it didn't quite click with me.  I enjoyed the writing, but I didn't like all the different character perspectives; it made it hard to connect with any of the characters.  I liked the story, but like I said, it was pretty depressing, and it goes to a dark place.  I kind of had an inkling about the secrets, but I was still shocked at some points, and how the author chose to write them; it's just a sad story.  I didn't really like the posh attitude of the characters, and they felt sort of artificial to me.  The suspense was interesting, and it was interesting to read the story as it unfolded.  I think it's a good read, and all in all I enjoyed it.

Review for Control by Laura Marie Altom ( 3 out of 5 stars)

I liked this book, but I didn't love it. I like both of the main characters together, but I didn't like the situation they were in.  I didn't like Liam's initial way of trying to be with Ella, and it took me awhile to get into the story because of it, and then the story felt really rushed at the end.  What did save this book for me was that Liam wasn't man-whoring around; although there was mention of how he could get any woman, and I hate when books say that because the women in the book usually are pathetic when it comes to the main male character, and I know there are some women out there who would do anything for some hot guy with money, but sometimes or rather all the time it's ridiculous.  There was some mention of Liam's ways with women, and I was glad it was just said, and not really brought into the story.  I also didn't like the side characters; the people the main character calls her friends are not very good friends, so I just didn't like them, and I wanted her to drop them, but she was kind of weak.  I'm hoping in the next book Ella grows more of a back bone, and Liam stops running hot and cold; now that I think about it Ella needs to stop that to.  I will read the next book in the series, and since it won't have the same main issue as this first book I'm hoping I'll like it better because I do have high hopes for Ella and Liam as  a couple.
