ARC Book Review: Diplomatic Immunity by Brodi Ashton

ARC Book Review: Diplomatic Immunity by Brodi Ashton

How… did we end up… here. After loving Brodi’s Everneath series and her latest co-writing adventures in My Lady Jane… Between all of that, I figured this was an author that couldn’t possibly lose my love. But I guess there are still some surprises to be had in the world. Diplomatic Immunity just wasn’t good. So this is a story of the uber-privileged kids in Washington D.C. Piper winds up at their school on a special scholarship and hopes that it’ll be able to get her a win in a journalism competition that would get her a college scholarship. Considering her family’s financial struggles, it’s […]

ARC Book Review: My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows

ARC Book Review: My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows

I don’t think there’s been a co-author combination I’ve ever been this excited about. Having read Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows’s individual works and liking all of what I’ve read meant that this book shot up to the top of my wishlist the instant I heard about it. It doesn’t hurt that I have a soft spot for historical fiction – especially when it concerns the Tudors. So yeah, this book had all the ingredients to be amazing… and it was. The premise will let you know that this story concerns Jane Grey, a very real person from history, but that this take […]

ARC Book Review: Evertrue by Brodi Ashton

ARC Book Review: Evertrue by Brodi Ashton

Almost a full year I have been suffering the desperate longing for this book, after Everbound tore out my heart and smashed it into pieces with its killer cliffhanger. I managed to get my hands on an ARC and had to read it right away. There was no other option. Then, save for the first 60 pages, I read it in one sitting. It was a pageturner, so at first thought I really liked it. However, the more I thought about it, the more things I thought of that just didn’t really work for me. In the end, I’m settling at 3 oranges, though I […]

Book Review: Everbound by Brodi Ashton

Book Review: Everbound by Brodi Ashton

Let me take you through my immediate reactions during the last 10 pages and after finishing this book. “NOOOOOOOOOO!!!” “You just… I don’t…” “I can’t even…” “I don’t know… I just don’t know…” I’m pretty much still in that state. I am literally fighting the urge to just pull my knees up to my chest and slowly rock back and forth, because that is what this book has done to me, and to have to wait another year for the series’s conclusion is unthinkable. Considering the trend I’ve recently gone through with sequels (particularly middle books) not living up to their predecessors I’m so glad […]

Book Review: Everneath by Brodi Ashton

Book Review: Everneath by Brodi Ashton

Wow. That’s the best way to start this review. Brodi Ashton delivers on this beautifully original paranormal romance. The story, shrouded in mystery that unravels at just the right pace, will keep you reading until deep in the night. The story is rooted in Greek mythology. I’ve always been a fan of the Persephone myth. It’s my favorite of all the Greek myths. Persephone is my favorite goddess. I think that helped a lot with being sucked into this story. But it worked so well. The execution was amazing. The concept was really original, creative, and well constructed. So the story tells the tale of […]
