Review: November 9

November 9

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have my own reading schedule; it is before I sleep at night. I usually do that, except when I read this book. I think this book screw my entire schedules; because when I read this I forget all things I should do in that day. I don't know if it's a good addictive for me. I really enjoy reading it, but it also makes me feel like there is so much time I waste because I read this book.

I have so many hobbies I do recently, and it's not about reading book. I take this book randomly, but I cannot stop when I start to read it. That it is. Colleen Hoover's strength that always make me fall in love with her works more and more.

I never know how come Hoover always makes me this way when I read her book. I never bored, and I keep forgetting the world around me. I enjoyed her books so much, I cry, and I'm so happy too when I read her book. I don't know why she always make story like this? The one I cannot be stopped if I haven't finished it? Ugh. I hate it, but I also wish that I will found this kind of book much more in future. I don't get many good books that can keep me sit and read all the day long without break, the time when I hate people interrupt my reading.

Review: Perfect Chemistry

Perfect Chemistry

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

i hope i can write my review here. i really like this book, kind of refreshing read for me after reading erotica books which make me getting tired with lack of story. But right now i am caught in flu so maybe i will write my review later.

Review: Rules of Attraction

Rules of Attraction

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It has been a long time I don’t write review, and now I will start my October review with the book of Simone Elkeles: Perfect Chemistry series.

I write my review start from the 2nd book, because I do a marathon from the first and continue reading it direct to the 2nd book, so I will start from here.

I finally met with Carlos who in the first book was only an eleven years old boy, but hereee he was in his seventeen years old. I really want to figure his transformation. From the first book I knew that I would definitely love the three boys of Fuentees here. They were sooo lovely in their own way. They had their own character and it what made every story had different taste. If we knew that Alex was a boy who actually didn’t really wanted to be a bad boy, I mean, he indeed active in a gang and had a big loyalty there but deep in his heart he actually wanted to have decent life so it what brought him to Brittanny. But he always felt that it what he should become, because he was the oldest in their family so he had responsibility to ensure that his family kept healthy, had enough food, and his brothers kept going to school. However, Carlos had his different way of thought about life. Instead had a good life and decent life, he just wanted to stuck in gang because it what define who he was. He ever did illegal thing and it made his family really worried especially Alex who always thought that he responsible for what his brothers would become. Maybe Alex used to felt that he failed to make Carlos realized that they could have a better life.

Review: Deessert

Deessert

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Banyak yang bilang novel ini bagus ya?
Me?

Setuju sih hahaha.
Novel ini bagus, ceritanya ngalir, konfliknya jelas, dan karakternya juga menarik. Aku suka tokoh Dewa, well, aku juga suka tokoh Naya. Ada sweet moment-nya, dan emosi keduanya juga dapet. Bahasanya enak, dan alurnya mulus.

Mungkin yang agak menggangguku sepanjang cerita adalah banyaknya bagian yang cukup mudah ditebak. Jadi waktu baca udah tau habis ini apa, padahal mungkin awalnya mau digambarkan sebagai kejutan atau sebagai twist. Ada yang berhasil sih, makannya aku masih suka sama buku ini.

Buku ini ringan, dan cocok untuk dinikmati di waktu-waktu senggang. Nggak butuh terlalu banyak fokus karena mudah dimengerti dan cukup asik dengan emosi pemainnya.

Review: Take a Chance

Take a Chance

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4.5

I forget when was my last time i read Abbi's books, but yesterday i just felt like i needed to finish this one, so yeah, i finished it. Maybe i really needed took a break from this series because it's getting too much for me at that time and i started to feel bored. So, if i continued to read, i could be just give 3 stars for next books, haha.

Anyway about this book, I think because after a long time i didn't read this series, so when I read this book, i was feeling something new again. The story, the characters, the plot, and i even had forgotten the emotion i should deal when i read rush or woods book. That was good for me, because i also forgot how it hurt when i read the part Jace died.

Review: Hujan - Tere Liye

Hujan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Ya ampun. Novel ini. Mengagumkan.

Aku baru aja selesai baca, dan masih deg-degan. 


Jadi, ini novel pertama Tere Liye yang aku baca, sekaligus novel pertama yang aku baca full dari penulis Indonesia yang dia adalah seorang pria!

Mengesampingkan betapa aku butuh satu lagi epilog dari novel ini (view spoiler), mari aku sebutkan apa aja yan bikin aku suka sama novel ini:

Yang pertama!!!

Karakter. Karakter. Karakter!!

Karakter yang kuat sekali. Esok dan Lail. Mereka adalah hal pertama yang membuatku langsung duduk tegap ketika membaca halaman pertama buku ini, dan semakin bersemangat ketika masuk cerita pertemuan Lail dengan Esok.

Siapa yang nggak jatuh cinta sama sosok seperti Lail dan Esok? They were so adorable.

Review: Too Late

Too Late

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I hate this.

I hate that I should know what Asa thought about Sloan and Carter/Luke, every time. I hate that I knew how much he loved Sloan, but then I hate his behavior: cheat, drug, rough, possessive (it should be good thing, but when Asa had that, it’s scary). Maybe the most part I hate from this book was because I should be put in Asa position, his POV, and I knew about his suffer, urge, needs. It’s getting hard for me to get into this book because I knew so much about Asa, and what made him like this. So, it’s not because this book was bad that I didn’t put full stars, I mean , there was people out there would like this book so much, surely, but every time I know more about Asa, it took more my sympathize instead admitted that he was a jerk, asshole, bastard, that he did a crime, but he also genius… shit.

Review: Captivated by You

Captivated by You

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Omg, I finished this one almost three weeks! So that's why I actually almost forget about the whole story from this book.

So here, their problem still hadn't resolved. Maybe Eva's problem had become more clearly, but not for Gideon, he still had his nightmare and what became clear was what the nightmare he had. However, for me it was still a long story, and if I paid attention about this book, the main story was a half of the book, and the rest was about made up or angry sex, something like that. Both of them surely needed a space and some break because they used to forget everything if they were together. I was agree with the end, about Eva's decision even it took so long for her decided it.

Review Novel: Skripshit by Alitt Susanto

Aku tau adanya makhluk makhluk bernama @pocongg@shitlicious@benakribo itu sebenernya semua dari adikku yang sering banget cerita tentang 3 orang itu. Waktu novelnya @poconggg keluar sebenernya aku emang kurang begitu tertarik, dan meskipun udah megang akhirnya cuma beberapa halaman yang aku baca. Dan belakangan aku baru sadar kalo mungkin aja novelnya lucu beneran, tuh lakunya bener-bener laku. Tapi tetep aja, aku belum baca sampai tamat ..

Oke, intinya bukan tentang si @poconggg itu sih, tapi temannya yang lain yang juga bikin novel. Yap, namanya Alitt.. Alitt Susanto? ya itulah namanya.. yang pasti mereka bertiga itu temenan dan sahabatan? Dan mereka sama-sama terkenal di twitter, sedangkan aku sampai sekarang masih nggak bisa mengoptimalkan penggunaan twitter. *ehm. gausah baca kalimat terakhir*

Photobucket

Nah, waktu novelnya si Alitt ini keluar, aku sama sekali nggak tertarik. Aku emang dari awal nggak begitu suka novel biografi sih. Tapi denger beberapa komentar yang bilang novelnya yang #SKRIPSHIT itu bagus, agak penasaran juga sih, tapi belum nyari juga. Waktu lihat blognya -ini juga adekku yang ngasih tau-, entah kenapa aku jadi suka banget sama cara dia bercerita. Nggak biasa, dan lucu. Dan yang paling bikin aku seneng adalah, karena dia rajin posting artikel di blog-nya, dan aku jadi tambah suka sama tulisan-tulisannya, dan nggak bosen. Entah kenapa, itu juga yang bikin aku bertanya-tanya bagaimanakah isi novelnya? Di tambah adekku yang ternyata bawa video hasil workshopnya ketemu sama si SPBU *katanya sih ini namanya mereka bertiga*, dan aku juga lihat bagaimana cara si Alitt ini menyampaikan sesuatu lewat kata-katanya dan cara bicaranya yang selalu terdengar bermakna. *ini gak berlebihan kan?*. Ditambah aku tau dia dari jogja, hehe.. gak ada hubungannya juga sih.. tapi karena aku juga dari jogja, aku juga jadi tambah pingin baca bukunya..

"Entwined with You" Pengorbanan yang Membabi Buta

Entwined with You

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Nah, jadi berhubung Crossfire 4 sampe sekarang belum kelar-kelar *ga ada waktu huhu* jadi aku rampungin dulu deh untuk review pendek buku ini.

Jadi, ehm, di buku ini Eva akhirnya tahu kan kenapa di buku sebelumnya Gideon bela-belain buat menjauhi Eva yang bikin nyesek banget dan mereka baikan lagi. Tapi karena polisi curiga sama Gideon masihan kalo langsung balikan sama Eva, jadinya mereka diem-diem gitu deh pacarannya biar nggak diketahui publik.

Review: Bared to You - Terbuka Untukmu

Bared to You  - Terbuka Untukmu

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Sulit banget nikmatin buku ini cuma karena aku nggak bisa sreg sama terjemahannya. Kata-katanya nggak terbangun lancar dan bahkan nyaris nggak enak diikuti. Rasanya banyak kata-kata yang agak ganjil ketika digunakan untuk mendiskripsikan, atau mengatakan sesuatu dalam buku ini. Alhasil, itu berdampak pada keseluruhan kesan yang aku dapatkan ketika membacanya.

Trus, aku juga agak terganggu dengan kemiripan antara buku ini dan FSoG. Ini fanfic kah? Entahlah.
Tapi nyaris terlalu mirip, bahkan lebih parah dari Fallen too Far padahal itu aku bilang mirip FSoG. Oke, jadi sekarang FSoG sering jadi referensi untuk buku-buku yang kubaca setelahnya, jangan salahkan, karena itu buku erotica pertama yang aku baca jadi selalu jadi perbandingan pertama. Soo, banyak juga adegan yang bisa kutebak kemana arahnya. Hal-hal yang mirip yang masih kuingat antara lain: (view spoiler)

The Gift (Crown's Spies Book 3)



Synopsis: 
Alternate cover for this ISBN can be found here

A child bride, Sara Winchester had grown into a winsome beauty, joyfully anticipating the day when her husband Nathan, Marquess of St. James, would return to claim her heart at last. Charmingly innocent, she dismissed the ancient feud that divided Nathan's family from her own...and she was totally unaware of his past exploits as the notorious pirate, Pagan. The man who now stood before her was perplexing, arrogant and powerfully handsome...a warrior-gentleman whose gentle touch aroused her to the wildest, deepest pleasures of love. 

Nathan had never bared his soul to any woman, but he was soon utterly beguiled and exasperated by Sara's sweet, defiant ways. Aboard his ship, The Seahawk, she was brave, imperious and determined to win his heart completely -- yet upon their return to England, her love would be sorely tested as a vile conspiracy tried to tear them apart. With their future at stake, they would discover the true destiny of their passion...for all time!


My Review:
4.5 stars

JG second book that I read. Now this is my favorite kind of reading. Although sometimes a bit little at the character of Sara, but I like it at every moment presented between Sara and Nathan. And really, I did not stop falling in love with Nathan. Although physically he was making everyone scared, but who knows that he never really dealt with a woman. Moreover, about his first experience of the emotions he felt in love against Sara was cute. He's so funny then so be gentle. I love it, really!

The Prize


Synopsis: 
Librarian's Note: Alternate cover for this ISBN can be found here.

In the resplendence of William the Conqueror's London court, the lovely Saxon captive Lady Nicholaa was forced to choose a husband from the assembled Norman nobles. She chose Royce, a baron warrior whose fierce demeanor could not conceal his chivalrous and tender heart. A resourceful, rebellious and utterly naive, Nicholaa vowed to bend Royce to her will despite the whirlwind of feelings he aroused in her. Ferocious in battle, seasoned in passion, Royce was surprised by the depth of his emotion whenever he caressed his charming bride.

In a climate of utmost treachery, where Saxons still intrigued against their Norman invaders, Royce and Nicholaa revelled in their precious new love ... a fervent bond soon to be disrupted by the call of blood, kin and country!
 

My Review:
I like character of nicholaa. She was stubborn and very easily upset, but she's also very easy to forgive. So, there's no anger which is too long for her.
I like characters Royce. 
He was attentive, kind, but also strong and decisive. 
Who would not fall in love with Royce?
I love the election plot
I like the push-pullI story

I really likeee with the dialog between the caracters. Not too much could be remembered because of the story here was more like a one-conflict solved although there was a magnitude conflict.Unfinished matter was about  brother of nicholaa but I did not know wether there a sequel or not. And the tranlation, really fast until the dot part. Hhahaha. Then I really like the time when nicholaa found out that Royce made her the queen of black pawns. It was soooo sweet really haha

My Review:
the first time I read this I really suprised about the content which was so adult thing.

But because this one, I became so intented to read other english ebook. My first time, and a good one.

This title is my second book which I read used english language but really from different genre. So just say that actually this is my first romance novel with english language and I reaaaally love them sooo much. huff.. and honestly I feel I will miss to read it again. that is why I read them so slowly and took more than a month. hmm

Castles (Crown's Spies Book 4)



Synopsis:
Orphaned and besieged, Princess Alesandra knew that only hasty marriage to an Englishman could protect her from the turmoil in her own land. To the amusement of her makeshift guardian, Colin, younger brother of the Marquess of Cainewood, the bold raven-haired beauty instantly captivated London society. But when Alesandra was nearly abducted by her unscrupulous countrymen, the fighting instincts that won Colin a knighthood for valor were kindled.

Deceiving himself that he wanted only to protect her, Colin swept her into a union meant to be a marriage in name alone...yet Alesandra's tender first kiss and hesitant caress ignited a wildfire in his soul. As the lovely princess dashed headlong into unforseen dangers, Colin would follow, knowing he must claim her as his own forever. Now he would risk life itself before he would lose this sweet, tempestuous angel... 

My Review:
Which also gets 3 stars from me. During the four books I read for this series, I actually almost find similarities between too coincidental and very novel indeed, can not possibly happen in real life. Even if there is a comparison eerrrr. 5% ?? boy.

All heroin has properties that are not easily intimidated by all the hero, the hero who is the most feared man. So, there are four of the most feared hero who can get married to four women that they are not easily intimidated, the result is a family it can not be intimidated.

The story is still pretty followed, and indeed nice followed, but ... sometimes even romance not too be. But still good to read.

My Review:
Comparatively very slow for me to finish this novel. I'm too skeptical in this book because I thought the story about the daisy not be much different from the story belongs to Lilian. Then I thought, well I'm going to bored. I do not too excited to read this last book . I even thought may not read well is not a problem.

But luckily I found this book to be 20rb discount and I'm interested in the synopsis. I immediately snapped it.

And it turns out guys. This the second novel after story of Annabele which for me is the most good. And worth create 4.5 stars

Fantasy Lover (Dark-Hunter Novels)




Synopsis: 
It might sound like a man's favorite fantasy - to live forever, destined to be the lover of thousands of women. But for Julian of Macedon, it's a nightmare. Once he was a proud Spartan general; now he's a love-slave, his essence magically held captive in a book, cursed to spend all eternity pleasing women. Then, one day, Grace Alexander summons Julian to fulfill her passionate dreams - and sees beyond the fantasy to the man himself. Long years as a sex therapist, listening to other people's bedroom problems, have taken a lot of the fun out of the physical side of love for Grace. But with or without sex, the rules of the enchantment cannot be changed - Julian is hers for the next month. And, as their time together slips by, Julian and Grace find more to share than sympathy and conversation and they begin to wonder if love might be within their grasp. That leaves only one question. Is love enough to break a 2,000-year-old curse?

Again the Magic (Wallflowers #0.5)




Synopsis:
She gave him her innocence . . .

Lady Aline Marsden was brought up to marry a man of her own class, but from the moment she meets John McKenna, she risks everything to be with him.

He gave her his heart

Although their love is forbidden, McKenna's passion for the beautiful Aline is too compelling to deny.

When their secret is discovered, their world is shattered. McKenna is forced to leave forever, unaware that the only reason Aline has given him up is to save him.

Now McKenna has returned, a powerful man determined to take revenge against the woman who broke his heart. But the magic between them burns as fiercely as ever . . . and as McKenna uncovers Aline's deepest secret, together they discover a love that will defy Fate itself. 

My Review: 
With this book I finally finished reading all the Wallflowers series that has lasted several years hehehe

Thus, this novel is good enough to read. Still exciting to read with Lisa typical emotion in her writing. Although passable exasperated with Aline who always refused to concede on his feet. Actually I liked their character in the beginning. And although later McKenna returned with a vengeance, I think the way he and Aline reconciliation should be more than this. I wish there were more emotional conflict anyway. Only hope. Because the bonds they already had was very strong in the beginning and as the beginning of the story of their youth story was really strong. Always ends with the equally compelling story, but only in the middle the story was still too fast. Well probably because of the story of Gideon and Livia and entered this book anyway.

Lady Madeline Matthews would rather shame herself than sacrifice her freedom—which is why, to avoid a marriage to an aging, lecherous lord, she seeks out the company of Logan Scott. A torrid affair with the notorious womanizer would surely condemn her in the eyes of good society.

Now a forward little minx is disrupting his life with her vibrant charm and unspoiled beauty, a high-spirited enchantress completely at sea in London's sophisticated whirl.

Review "A Thousand Boy Kisses"

A Thousand Boy Kisses

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Novel ini bakin nangis, kejer.

(view spoiler)
Akhirnya aku tetep baca buku ini karena ini hasil rekomendasi dan ratingnya juga tinggi jadi setelah mempersiapkan diri menghadapi apa yang akan kubaca, kuberanikan diri juga membaca buku ini. Jujur aku pinginnya baca novel ini cepet-cepet biar cepetan sampai ending biar cepetan kelar. Tapi di lain sisi aku juga tahu bacanya bakal lama, jadi gini deh, lama kelarnya hahahah.

Anyway, secara cerita (dengan melupakan endingnya dan konflik utama yang errgh sebel banget itu), ceritanya bagus banget. Aku mau bayangin ceritanya si Poppy sembuh deh biar aku bisa lihat novel ini dari sisi yang sebenernya aku anggap bagus tapi tertutupi oleh kekesalanku sama keharusan penerimaan cerita bahwa si Poppy harus pergi (view spoiler). Hiks.

Devil in Winter (Wallflowers #3)


Click Here to See Indonesian Review

Synopsis:

Four young ladies enter London society and band together to each find a husband. Has the third "Wallflower" now met her match?

A Devil's Bargain

Easily the shyest Wallflower, Evangeline Jenner stands to become the wealthiest, once her inheritance comes due. Because she must first escape the clutches of her unscrupulous relatives, Evie has approached the rake Viscount St. Vincent with a most outrageous proposition: marriage!

Sebastian's reputation is so dangerous that thirty seconds alone with him will ruin any maiden's good name. Still, this bewitching chit appeared, unchaperoned, on his doorstep to offer her hand. Certainly an aristocrat with a fine eye for beauty could do far worse.

But Evie's proposal comes with a condition: no lovemaking after their wedding night. She will never become just another of the dashing libertine's callously discarded broken hearts—which means Sebastian will simply have to work harder at his seductions... or perhaps surrender his own heart for the very first time in the name of true love.

Traveling thousands of miles from home to enter college is the only way nineteen-year-old Avery Morgansten can escape what happened at the Halloween party five years ago—an event that forever changed her life. All she needs to do is make it to her classes on time, make sure the bracelet on her left wrist stays in place, not draw any attention to herself, and maybe—please God—make a few friends, because surely that would be a nice change of pace. The one thing she didn’t need and never planned on was capturing the attention of the one guy who could shatter the precarious future she’s building for herself.

Some things are worth experiencing…

Cameron Hamilton is six feet and three inches of swoon-worthy hotness, complete with a pair of striking blue eyes and a remarkable ability to make her want things she believed were irrevocably stolen from her. She knows she needs to stay away from him, but Cam is freaking everywhere, with his charm, his witty banter, and that damn dimple that’s just so… so lickable. Getting involved with him is dangerous, but when ignoring the simmering tension that sparks whenever they are around each other becomes impossible, he brings out a side of her she never knew existed.

Some things should never be kept quiet…

But when Avery starts receiving threatening emails and phone calls forcing her to face a past she wants silenced, she’s has no other choice but to acknowledge that someone is refusing to allow her to let go of that night when everything changed. When the devastating truth comes out, will she resurface this time with one less scar? And can Cam be there to help her or will he be dragged down with her?

And some things are worth fighting for...

It Happened One Autumn (Wallflowers #2)




Synopsis:

Four young ladies enter London society with one necessary goal: they must use their feminine wit and wiles to find a husband. So they band together, and a daring husband-hunting scheme is born.


It happened at the ball...

Where beautiful but bold Lillian Bowman quickly learned that her independent American ways weren't entirely "the thing." And the most disapproving of all was insufferable, snobbish, and impossible Marcus, Lord Westcliff, London's most eligible aristocrat.

It happened in the garden...

When Marcus shockingly—and dangerously—swept her into his arms. Lillian was overcome with a consuming passion for a man she didn't even like. Time stood still; it was as if no one else existed... thank goodness they weren't caught very nearly in the act!

It happened one autumn...

Marcus was a man in charge of his own emotions, a bedrock of stability. But with Lillian, every touch was exquisite torture, every kiss an enticement for more. Yet how could he consider taking a woman so blatantly unsuitable... as his bride?

Secrets of a Summer Night (Wallflowers #1)



Synopsis:
Four young ladies enter London society with one common goal: they must use their feminine wit and wiles to find a husband. So a daring husband-hunting scheme is born.

Annabelle Peyton, determined to save her family from disaster, decides to use her beauty and wit to tempt a suitable nobleman into making an offer of marriage. But Annabelle's most intriguing--and persistent--admirer, wealthy, powerful Simon Hunt, has made it clear that while he will introduce her to irresistible pleasure he will not offer marriage. Annabelle is determined to resist his unthinkable proposition . . . but it is impossible in the face of such skillful seduction.

Her friends, looking to help, conspire to entice a more suitable gentleman to offer for Annabelle, for only then will she be safe from Simon--and her own longings. But on one summer night, Annabelle succumbs to Simon's passionate embrace and tempting kisses . . . and she discovers that love is the most dangerous game of all.

My Review:
I just wanted to really recommend this novel to anyone who likes the story of time travel.

For the sake of the God this novel is really exciting!!!

I usually knpw about story of time travel just limited in korean drama, but this, I enjoy it on a piece of paper with the setting of the western continent. By contrast setting of modern vs. the past days of the war in England or in Normandy if it follows the contours of the novel. Where I can imagine that all of the characters wear clothing that is usually presented in historical romance novel that I usually read.

I even increased the star for this novel gradually ranging from 3 star, because I felt somewhat bored in beginning and didn't quite understand, plus the meeting of these two characters ways too long. I was raised to 4 stars because  when finally told that the past would continue to change the future ultimately force them together and made them experienced kind of thrilling adventure with a lot of things that happened. And finally I had to give it 5 stars because I could not say anything with how the novel ends!

Angel (Wyoming #3)



Not too many things I want to express from this book. Surely this novel become good for me starting from the middle to the back, when Cassie had brought down his defenses to start liking Angle beyond her reputation. And the more interesting how Cassie tried to make a good reputation of Angle to his mother. Initially it was a bit slow anyway, and the two families who feud did not get too much my sympathy. Only when it declared that Cassie and Angle was marry the story becomes much more exciting.

Savage Thunder (Wyoming #2)



Not too carried away with his story of traveling in one direction anyway, and not too could follow the locations that are used as well.

But for its conflicts, I was carried away. Character, past figures, still makes me able to give 4 stars for this novel.

Glorious Angel (Southern #1)



Initially I was already anticipating that in the latter end of the story there would be a big change, because from the beginning to the middle of the story, ties between the two main characters were like the ending itself.

I was a bit not comfortable at the ending,not comfortable at plot and conflict development. The conflict somehow become too complicated for this kind of thin novel. Not to mention how many characters here. Heck, many who chase to get Angle.

I wonder how many times the scene about the purpose in this book. And it was enough to make me tired. At the end I couldn't hold this story anymore and many parts I skip.HR Plus this was the first novel that I just gave 2 stars.

Captive of My Desires (Malory-Anderson Family #8)



This book is really good!!!

Although in the beginning I was wondering, how could the story was about pirates, but when the story had entered the main problem when Drew was arrested, the story became increasingly difficult to ignore.

As written in the synopsis, 'who is charming and who is captive', in this novel I often asked who was the hell actually the true captain here?. I really like Gabrielle who were kind and unyielding. I love these characters like Gabby, she did not have prejudice to others and she was very easy to forgive, she could always read all situations, and immediately straighten out misunderstandings. She was also brave, honest, and always tried to reverse the situation if the situation was not in accordance with her will.

Drew figure appeared quite annoying coupled with its reputation of 'a lover in every port', but it never made Gabby lied to herself that she was not too concerned with that reputation. She had the willpower to change the Drew and saw things from the positive side, the things I admired about this heroine since Drew was very, very annoying.

Their interactions that were always spiced debate was always interesting to follow. In fact I really liked the humor of Gabby and how she was always able to answer all the words that hurt if directed at ordinary woman. But it turned out that Gabby had always managed to overcome them.

Review: A Perfect Ten

A Perfect Ten

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5+++++

OMG. Aku suka bangetttt yang iniiiiiiiiiii xD suka suka suka suka bangeeeeetttttt. Akhirnyaaaaaa.... setelah bertahan di kelima buku Linda Kage untuk seri forbidden, setelah dari kemarin bertanya-tanya kapan yaaaa kasih bintang 5 untuk seri ini.... akhirnyaaaaa.... ada jugaa tanpa berpikir banyak!!!

Ten.Ten.Ten.Ten.

Seriously, aku baru liat dia di buku kedua, dan emang siiiih disitu udah kelihatan how asshole he was. Jujur, aku kesel banget liat tingkahnya dan sering kepikiran, orang kayak dia harus dikasih heroin macam apa ya yang cocok? Tapi emang nggak kepikiran, dibuku kedua aku lagi menikmati kisahnya Noel dan Aspen. Anyway, disitu udah ada clue juga sih bakal sama siapa dia. Tapi tetep aja, Caroline disini masih berperan sebagai adik yang suka ngeribetin kakaknya, agak cute aja sih pas dia digendong kakaknya keluar kamar trus untuk pertama kalinya ketemu sama Ten. Disitu kelihatan untuk pertama kalinya Ten bakalan sama Caroline dan sebaliknya.

Review: Forever Too Far

Forever Too Far

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

just finished this series and I should say, it finally worth my time reading this one.

I can say that I love this Couple, Rush and Blaire.

Actually I don't belong the series with same main character over the three books after I reading guilt hunter series or night huntress series. I don't know, maybe because they were about paranormal romance. But I like this series, or maybe I just like series in young adult or new adult genre which is about this present time in setting (I don't have many reference actually). I like fifty shades, all three books make me satisfied not for sex but because I can see the character building from nothing to something, from stranger to married couple, and actually I like the main conflict around the characters. Though I'm not sure about this one. I don't really looking forward for another series with same character, and after I read the first book from this series actually I don't really interest to continue. Anyway, I'm here in the third book and I love it.

Review: Be with Me

Be with Me

My rating: 0 of 5 stars

J. Lynn. Aku nggak tau ini authornya punya dua nama atau gimana ya, profilnya ada dua ya di Goodreads? *abaikan*

Waaaaakkk suka banget ini suka bangeeettt… Ternyata emang udah terlanjur suka banget sama bukunya trus lanjut masih aja bagus. Dua buku untuk seri ini aku belum nyesel sih bacanya, dan bintangnya masih penuh.


Disini cerita tentang adiknya Cam, Teresa, yang dia jatuh apa ya pokoknya dia sekarang udah nggak bisa nari lagi, kasiannn.. padahal di buku pertama dia kayak yang keliling dunia gitu eh di buku ini dia akhirnya mau nggak mau masuk sekolah juga deh.

Trus ada Jase, dia juga muncul di buku pertama sebagai sahabat dekat Cam. Di buku pertama aku kira dia ini pendiam, dingin, begitulah. Ternyata sebenernya Jase ini ramah cuma dia punya masa lalu yang tragis dan kelam, dan itu emang kasian banget. Aaaakk ternyata-ternyata dia tuh…. *nggak spoiler deh*.
