IQ: I definitely didn't connect with this book. I didn't care for the writing or the "street" talk that was all over the book. I gave it about half of the first disc and knew it wasn't for me.
The Immortals: This looked like a really interesting premise. Unfortunately, it was so boring. My mind kept wandering, so I kept losing the thread of the story. I'm not too familiar with Greek mythology, so that might have been a factor in my not enjoying the story.
The Clairvoyants: I made it about halfway through before I gave up. I had a few days were I didn't get to listen to the audiobook and when I finally got back to it, I found I didn't care what happened to the characters. Nor could I really remember what was going on. They were pretty forgettable.
Blurred Lines: I kept seeing the amazing reviews for this friends to lovers romance. Unfortunately, I fall into the minority who DNF'd this book. I didn't care for the characters or the situation. There was nothing believable about it their friendship. Neither character was very likable.

After I Fall is the third in the Falling series. I have really been a fan of this series and this one makes a great addition. It definitely can be read as a stand alone, so if you are new to the series with this one, you won't be missing anything. This is Parker and Eli's story. I have been waiting for Eli's story because I was intrigued by him in the previous book.
Ms. Scott always knows how to get right to the heart of her characters. My heart was just breaking for Parker throughout this book. I can't imagine what it is like to feel helpless and trapped in a life you don't want. I was so rooting for her to break free and to realize she was strong enough to do it. I loved her and Eli together. The only thing I wish was that I had gotten more of Eli's background. I wanted to get to know him more than I did. Essentially, I wish this story was longer because I loved it so much.
I definitely recommend this one. Fans of this author won't be disappointed. I also know new readers will soon discover a new favorite author. I can;t wait to see what is next.
She is the bestselling author of the Homefront series and the Falling series, both about soldiers and veterans adjusting to life after returning from the wars in Iraq & Afghanistan. Her bestselling Falling series features soldiers integrating into life on college campuses.

Hope Flames: This romance was an OK read for me. I'll admit to being a bit underwhelmed by the story. It really kind of dragged for me.. I also thought they dragged out the mystery of what happened to Emma way too long. The dialogue between the characters often felt awkward and not authentic.
Axel: I found this one really sweet and really frustrating at the same time. Honestly, thought the misunderstanding was dragged out WAY too long to really be believable. But, I ended up loving Axel and Isabelle in the end. I'll probably continue with the series.
Right Kind of Wrong: This wasn't my favorite of the series, but I still really enjoyed it. I loved Jack, but Jenna really had to grow on me. Her need for control over her life got tiring after a while. I was sad to see the series end. I would love to see Ellen get her own HEA!
Beautiful Crazy: I thought this was an enjoyable first book in a series. The HEA was a bit fast for me, even though they did spent a lot of time together on the road. But, I did enjoy the banter and the heat between Kevan and Dillon. I was cheering Dillon on in the end! I look forward to the next one, Beautiful Mess.
