“Lost Gods” Book Review

lost-gods-tour

I absolutely adored this series. Every minute of it was breath taking and left me thinking about the characters long after I had finished their story. I gave this series a five star review all around.

There are three books in this series and  each follow a different God. I’m a big fan of writers using past characters in their other books and Laverne does a great job overlapping the characters. The mains in book one follow you all the way to book three along with the new characters and I love being able to see how they have grown.

My Review:

I’ll admit when I read this I wasn’t to sure I was going to like it. And I wasn’t expecting to fall in love with a God. But then it pulled me in and I loved it. I love the character’s names, I love the mystery of the event they find themselves in, and I love the backdrop. The characters are well written and the story is fully developed. This is a must read if you like stories that will leave you wanting more then this fist book is where you should go.

Synopsis

All the Gods are dead. Long live the Gods. Never forget.

To be reborn time after time knowing, remembering; each past life is both heaven and hell for Ledo. But as a son of Ares, the Fates rule his life. His rebirth serves one purpose: to stand with Zeus when he faces Cronus and to die doing it. That never bothered him. He’d lived many lifetimes and knew his destiny, willingly embracing it.

But then came Aria, she too was his destiny, his reward. Both his pleasure and his pain. Protect her he would, even if it meant going against the Fates.

As a scientist, if Aria couldn’t see it, taste it, touch it or calculate it, it didn’t exist. Until the man from her beautiful dreams showed her everything she believed in was a lie. And now that she knew that, her life was forfeited

My Review:

This book was interesting to me. I wasn’t ready to let go of the character’s from the last book but I didn’t have too. These books are linked together and I was able to get a glimpse of the main story in this book. As all of these books follow a very specific arc. Something I really love about this book is the connection that Led and Aria feel. You defiantly get a sense of design intervention in this book.

Synopsis

All the Gods are dead. Long live the Gods. I am aware.

Linc had grown up having to kill to protect himself and his best friend. So, death and he were intimate friends. Then when his best friend turned out to be non-other than the Greek God Zeus and needed him to once again watch his back, Linc had no choice but to grab his Glock and say, hell yes.

Little did he know, he had many trials to go through to be able to help his friend. Not the least of which was helping a woman conquer her fears and not run from a man like him. But she was an integral part of his existence. He could not let her go. 

Mina had resigned herself to being alone all her life. She could trust no one with her secrets, she couldn’t even trust herself. She’d been forced to kill to protect those secrets and she didn’t want to risk the one man who might have accepted them. Not after she’d almost cost him his life. Yet, help him she must. It was her destiny, she just couldn’t bring herself to believe it.

My Review:

This last book was my favorite. I absolutely love Mina and her abilities. I love the way she is so independent and makes her own claim. Mina is defiantly the more empowering of the three main women in this series. Strong, independent, and brave whats not to love? Linc is also a fun character and I love the way his personality kind of compliments hers.

Final Thoughts:

I love this series and would recommend it to other readers who have a love for the Greek Gods, romance, mystery, and action because this book has a bit of everything. *This series must be read in order and does contain detailed scenes.*

“All In” (Full Tilt Duet Book II) Book Review

emma-scott-all-in

“You can prepare all you want for someday. Nothing prepares you for the day of.”

Synopsis:

Reeling from her loss, Kacey Dawson is grieving and heartbroken, her addictive demons hauling her back into the alcohol-soaked abyss she worked so hard to crawl out of. Kacey teeters on the edge of oblivion, and must fight her way through the pain, to build a new life for herself with her music, and somehow fulfill the promise she made to Jonah…one she feels is impossible to keep.

Theo Fletcher has a secret burning in his heart, one that he holds close, while he struggles to keep strong for his family that is falling apart. His mother’s health is fragile and his father’s disapproval is breaking him down. Theo is afraid if he follows his heart, he’ll fail, and not just himself, but his brother who believed in him when no one else did.

Drawn together by their pain, Theo and Kacey slowly build a friendship, re-forge old ties, help each other to heal, and give one another the courage to reach for their dreams. Together, from the depths of grief and guilt, they learn to laugh again, to trust again, and quite possibly find something beautiful and lasting amid the shattered pieces of their broken hearts.

Review:

Five stars doesn’t cover it, this book deserves the whole universe.

This book left an imprint on my soul. Some stories take your breath away; others give you a reason to breathe. Emma Scott’s, All In (Book two of the Full Tilt Duet) did both. I was left breathless by the beauty and tragedy of Full Tilt. But that same breath was returned through the hope and love that Emma brought me in All In. 

Personally, I have this very unhealthy relationship with death. I am terrified of losing the people I love and sometimes I find my self tearing up from just the thought. Death is like this silent storm that creeps up on you while your at the beach. And no matter how beautiful the water was, nothing can stop the rain, the thunder, and the shock.

But Emma did.

Her book is about coping. About finding the treasure within the ruin. I think that in a way this book freed me from the fear I have harbored for so long. This book is so deeply personal to me.

I don’t know if I’ll ever love a story as much as I loved this one.

Beautiful.
