I’ve read this books over the period of few weeks in March, but I didn’t have time to write a proper review. Looking back at it, I’m not sure if all of them are worth a full review. So, I decided to put some of them here, the other reviews coming soon.
Pestilence, Laura Thalassa
Interesting premise, tri-dimensional characters, exciting setting.
Pestilence is a dark, paranormal romance done very well.
The read was light and fun, and even though the male MC is evil and bad and does horrible things, it certainly is an interesting character.
The female MC not so much, but that is usually the case with romance. Female MCs tend to be stupid and dull, here she was just dull. Even though, it didn’t destroy the world built in this book.
Alpha’s Temptation, Renee Rose & Lee Savino
This book was weird on so many levels. From insta-love from male MC towards a lot of illogical moves from both the female and male MC.
The writing in itself was interesting and compelling, but at the same time, the characters weren’t as much. The story didn’t have an attractive hook, to the point of being foreseeable.
The romance in itself, when it is based on insta-love doesn’t feel exciting, so the steamy scenes didn’t attract much of my attention.
But, I must say, it felt nice to have a romance book that has something else in the story besides sex, thus the 3*.
Defaced, Marissa Farrar
I liked the blurb of the book, I liked the cover and I thought this was the book that would get me excited for the dark-romance genre. Well, it wasn’t.
Monster as a character was deep, and even though he does a lot of despicable things, he is still interesting for the reader.
On the other hand, Lily was annoying, stupid, and undeveloped. Everything she did felt off, counting her fear of being touched that felt weird when she explains the reasoning behind it.
It had an interesting premise that wasn’t explained to the extent that it should have been.
So, overall, this book is medium on every level.
