Sara Fields-Rough

Sara has written a new book in her Alpha Brotherhood series. This is a dark omeagverse series with a wonderful overall storyline that keeps me really interested along with all that hot sexy sex. So, let’s talk about Rough, shall we?

So, we have Ariana, who is a member of the Brotherhood, and an omega. She’s being marched to Kingsworth because she was abducted by members of the evil Cult that she and the Brotherhood are trying to take down. She ends up in their dungeons with a lot of other omegas. After some testing, she gets dragged in front of some masked and robed people who tell her that she is going to be taken before the new king, Magnar, and is going to be gifted to him.

Magnar has spent years working his way up through the Cult so that he could be in the position that he is in. He has no plans to take an omega, ever. But, when he is gifted Ariana by higherups in the Cult, he knows that he has to take her. That’s OK, he has a special room attached to his room, and she will be able to live there, and he won’t have to worry about her making him weak. Nor does he have to worry about her finding out his secrets, because he has some. And his secrets could end up causing him some real problems.

Ariana, being the daughter of the head of the Brotherhood, is really smart and very well trained. She’s sneaky, tricksy, and very strategic. She takes any and all information that she gets, saves it, and then puts it into her brain where she can plug it in with everything else she knows. Because she is trapped in this room by Magnar, she has plenty of time to think. And she has a library locked in with her, and plenty of time to read. Knowledge is power, and Ariana is really powerful.

Magnar has more going on than it looks like. He’s really smart, but I think that he’s pretty happy to be underestimated by everyone, because it lets him do what he needs to do. He has some serious plans that I think that a lot of people wouldn’t like and I’m looking forward to seeing what happens when those plans get put into place.

OK, that’s all for this one. Go check it out. Happy reading!

Raisa Greywood-Breaking Donatella

This is part of the Leave Me Breathless collections. There are 4 collections that make up the Leave Me Breathless books. Go hit up their website to find out about all the collections. Breaking Donatella is part of the Black Rose Collection, which is all about the dark romance, BDSM, suspense, dark sided things that we all know that I love.

So, we have Cristian Moretti. He’s the head of the Moretti mafia family in Italy. They have been at war with the Rossi family for centuries. The current head of the Rossi family is dying, so Cristian has a deal for him. He tells the old man that he will marry his granddaughter, Donatella, and that will let Cristian merge the families and become super-rich and powerful. Old man Rossi says, oh no, you can’t marry my granddaughter, she’s been dead for years. Cristian is all like, yeah, that’s what you think.

Ella Rose wasn’t born Ella Rose, she was born Donatella Rossi, but when she and her mom ran from Italy, she became someone else. Now, she’s an adventure writer and television personality. She does BASE jumping, diving, rock climbing, and, on this occasion, roller derby. She’s fierce, she’s strong, she’s got all kinds of lady balls. She knows her family history, but she figures being on televison and famous will protect her. Besides, who is going to connect a pierced, tattooed woman with a bright pink mohawk to a dead Mafia princess. Cristian, that’s who.

Cristian manages to kidnap Ella, who wakes up naked, with a collar on, in a private airplane. He tells her what’s going to happen, and she attacks him. He shocks her with the shock collar she’s wearing, and then she manages to get the chain of her cuffs around his neck and nearly kills him. Cristian whips her with his belt, she stoically takes it. He asks if she’s ready to say she’s sorry. Ella tells him that she’s sorry that she was gauche enough to not kill him. He shocks her again.

At this point, Cristian’s plan is to keep her prisoner, break her, and have a perfectly submissive wife who will allow him to take over the Rossi family. He also needs heirs, and getting heirs from her will cement his dynasty. All he has to do get her to marry him, willingly, and oh yeah, put this historical Bridal Collar on her. That collar has been put on women from both families, when they are taken as spoils of war, and the only way to take it off is for the women to be beheaded, since it is literally welded on to their neck.

It’s important to note that the best laid plans of mice and men oft go awry, and this is definitely one of those times. When Cristian made all of his grand plans, he didn’t know what Ella was like, and I think that he would’ve made different plans if he did, but maybe not, because he’s kind of a stubborn man. He thinks that he knows best and that everything is going to go the way that he wants.

I love Raisa’s heroines. She writes some of the most amazingly strong female characters. I mean, just fucking kickass women. Women who try to choke you out with the chains on the cuffs you put on them. Women who manage to escape from locked rooms without going through the door. Women who ask you to kill their grandfather as part of their wedding present. I just really love these women that Raisa writes. Now, that doesn’t say that other authors don’t write strong women, because they do, but there’s just something about Raisa’s characters that is just special. And Ella? I have a definite crush on her.

OK, that’s all for this one. Really, you NEED to go check it out. Yeah, there’s some serious dark things that happen in this, but then there’s Ella. Fanfuckingtastic book.

Addison Cain-Corrupted

So, if you’ve read here for a while, you know that I love omegaverse. You may also know that Addison Cain’s Alpha’s Claim series was the first omegaverse series I read. And Addison has finally come out with the 5th book in the series, Corrupted. She’s been teasing us for so long with it, and finally she took mercy on us. And? The next one is already up for pre-order, and I’ve already hit that button, thank you very much.

We’re in Bernard Dome with Brenya and Jacques. She’s been forcibly pair bonded to him and she’s not really all that happy about it. She hates Jacques, and now she’s stuck with him in her head all the time. He, on the other hand, is thrilled as fuck. He thinks that he’s madly, passionately in love with her, and he has this omega now, and it’s perfect. He also thinks that Brenya is madly in love with him, even though it’s pretty obvious that she’s not. She just barely tolerates him, and the only thing that gets her through is a blank, quiet spot in her soul. She falls into that space when Jacques gets too overwhelming and is able to handle everything.

Meanwhile, Jules, who was also bonded to Brenya at the same time, is sitting in a cell. He’s just sitting in the same space, not moving, not doing anything. Just sitting. And, as we all know that Jules is Shepherd’s right hand man, I think that Jacques should be very worried about this. But, nope, Jacques is sure that he has everything under control because he has a rabid dog on a leash.

Over on the other side of the world, in Greth Dome, we have Shepherd and Claire. She’s getting healthier and she’s happy, but she doesn’t want to leave the house. Shepherd isn’t going to put up with this, so he’s being his normal autocratic assholeish lovable self. #AlwaysAndForeverTeamShepherd He has plans, lots and lots of plans.

I have ever liked Jacques, and I’ve never made any secret of it. He wants to be what Shepherd is, but he isn’t that smart. I mean, he thinks that he is, he thinks that he’s all that and an extra large bag of chips, but yeah, not so much. This book didn’t make me like him. In fact, I may even dislike him more than I did before. There is only one action that he took in this book that I am happy about. Other than that, he can just go and kick rocks.

I am #TeamJules 1000000%. I have always had a soft spot in my heart for him because he is just so very much together and so steady and stoic. I’m pretty sure that there is a whole lot underneath that we haven’t seen yet. Jules was a good friend and good support to Claire in her early days with Shepherd, and that’s part of my soft spot for him.

Brenya? Yeah, she is pretty fucking awesome. She’s not in a good spot, and she doesn’t handle the world she’s currently living in well, but that’s not a huge surprise. I mean, living in this rarified lap of luxury where pretty much everything goes has to be so weird for Brenya, who is very much by the book rule keeping kind of person. She has figured out how to deal with the world where she grew up. She liked that world. She understood the rules, the edges, and the boundaries. But there are no rules where she is, and the boundaries shift constantly. She can’t cope. But, for all of that, she’s still pretty fucking awesome. She is brilliant, and she manages to make connections that no one else would make.

I am, as always, madly in love with Claire and Shepherd, and I can’t wait to see what is going to happen with them next.

I have so many thoughts, but I’m not putting any of them here, because they would be spoilers. Just know that the book is great, and there is so much going on in it, and I’m still trying to see if I can guess what Shepherd’s plans are. I’m pretty sure that I can’t.

Measha Stone-Kept by Him

It’s a new day and we get a new Mafia bride from Measha. Kept by Him is the second in her series of Mafia Brides books. It is connected to the first book, but could be read as a standalone, if you really want to.

Lena’s father is the head of a Polish Mafia group. Her older brother married a woman and they did something to a Russian Mafia family. Len had absolutely nothing to do with it, and she has stayed out of the whole business. But, that doesn’t matter all that much when it comes to Mafia families. One day, when she’s out with her friends, she starts to get a headache and feel a little off. So, she heads out to her car so that she can visit her brother, but before that can happen, some guys grab her, and the next thing she knows, she’s woken up in a small room and it’s not good. She’s been taken by a different family, and they are holding her in the area where they store the women they traffic.

Micah was the second son in his family until his brother died. Now he’s the heir. He finds out that his father has taken Lena and he has to figure out how to handle this situation. When Lena’s brother and father come the next day, Micah’s proposal is that he marry Lena, and then everything will be equal. The peace can be restored in between their families. And Micah is fine with that, but his father? Well…

I like Lena. I feel really sorry for her too. She is angry about everything, and she really has every right to be. She’s totally a pawn in this situation, no choice in anything that is going on with her. I think that she knew what the reality of her world was, and she expected it to happen, but she was hoping that some things wouldn’t happen the way that they did. And I think that she was really hoping that her family would get her out of what’s going on now. It’s one thing to have an arranged marriage, it’s something else to be given as spoils of war, and that’s basically what happened here.

I think that Micah has some really interesting traits. I do think that he should’ve stood up to his father at the very beginning. Hell, even before the beginning of this book. I think that the old man’s brains were leaking out of his ear. He had some serious issues. I mean, serious issues. I think that Micah has a really good grip on the future and what it’s going to take to make the future happen the way that he wants it to.

OK, that’s all for this one. Nothing under the pic today. Go check it out! Happy reading!

Skye Warren-Private Property

Jane Eyre is one of my favorite classic books, so when I heard that Skye had series that was going to retell the story with her spin on it, I was all like sign me right the fuck up, please and thank you. And so, I got Private Property. And I was happy. Right until I hit the fucking end, and Skye was mean to me. I did, and this is the honest truth, curse her when I was done reading, because I don’t know how I’m going to last until book 2 comes out in a couple of months.

We have Jane, who has just flown from Texas to Maine so she can be the nanny to a young girl named Paige. Paige’s parents have just died, and she’s now living with her uncle Beau. She needs a nanny, and Jane needs a job. She’s just out of the foster system and she wants to go to college. The only way she can do that is to earn the money, so the nanny job it is. She signed a year long contract, and she won’t get the majority of her money until her contract is over.

She arrives in the middle of a huge storm and her employer is out in the storm because he rescued a kitten. He shoves the kitten into her hands and tells her to keep it alive and to consider it her job interview. It’s the next morning when she meets her young charge, and it’s not all that great. Paige and Beau butt heads like mad, and Paige is still hurting like hell. But Jane has some tricks that she can use to make a connection to Paige.

I really like Jane. She’s determined AF. She knows what the odds are against her as a former foster child and she’s going to do everything that she can to beat those odds. That means that she HAS to go to college. She HAS to have that degree so that she can get a good job. She worked really hard in high school to get good grades so that she could be accepted to college, so now all she has to do is to get the money. Jane is also really caring. You can see that with how good she is with Paige. It’s obvious that Paige is more than just a job to Jane, she’s someone really important. I like that Jane isn’t afraid to stand up to Beau, which I think that Beau needs more of.

Beau has secrets. Lots and lots and lots of secrets, and I can’t wait to find out more about all of them. We do get to see in his head some, but he’s fairly shut off, even in his own head, which is both interesting and compelling. It makes me really want to find out everything about him.

This isn’t an exact word for word retelling of Jane Eyre, but it does follow the story well enough for anyone who is familiar with it to see it. Skye has put in enough changes in it, other than modernising it, that you don’t know precisely what is going to happen, if that makes any sense. It does to me, anyway.

I can’t wait for the next book to come out. It’s too long from now.

Claire Marta & Nia Farrell-Ash

Today we have the last book in the first season of the Guarded Hearts books. And let me tell you, I think that Ash is the perfect book to wrap up the season. I think that the main thrust of the story for the last 7 books was wrapped up well enough and the hooks were laid well enough that moving on to season 2 is going to be easy and we aren’t going to want to know what happened with what thing.

We start with Ash. She’s 18 and has been staying at a safe house owned by her step-cousin, who should be the Don of his family, but since he was too young when his father died, his uncle, Ash’s step-father and all around scumbag douchecanoe, took over, and he hasn’t stepped down yet. Ash had to get away from him for a lot of reasons, one of which is the fact that he was going to trade her to a vampire. Only now, Ash has overheard one of her cousin’s guards talking to her step-father and she has to leave. So, she sneaks out and runs. For a few days she manages to hide, but then she ends up at the Citadel, where she is able to find somewhere safe to hide. While she’s there, she sees a man working at a forge. He’s her god of the forge.

Tobias is the only one of his cadre to not have a partner or a mate. He leads the cadre, protects everyone to the best of his abilities, and does everything he can to fight the battles they are in with Etienne and his ilk. He also crafts things, usually in his forge, but not always. He’s not looking for a mate. He doesn’t think that he deserves one. He had bad things happen in his past, and he’s pretty sure that it means he’ll never have a mate. Until the day that he looks up from his forge and sees a face that he’ll never forget. And he discovers that Ash is hiding on their property. He takes her up to his apartment, and has to figure out who she is, what to do with her, and what her being there means.

I really like Ash. I think that she is this real mix of worldly and naive. She’s strong and yet she’s really fragile. She is really cynical about some things, but in a lot of other things, it’s like she’s seeing everything for the first time. It’s really interesting to read, and it makes her a really good character. I think that she’s also really protective, and she will do a fuckload of shit to make sure that she can protect the people that she loves. Frankly, I think that she and Tobias are a perfect match, really.

Tobias has been a bit of a mystery during this whole series. We’ve only really seen him as this stern and paternal leader. He makes the rules, he makes sure that everyone follows the rules, he makes the hard decisions, and he does what he can to make sure that they are going to win their battle against the dark. We don’t see much in his head during the other books, so we don’t really get to know him until this one. In fact, a few times in the older books, I actually kinda didn’t like him at all. He made decisions that I didn’t like. Oh, I understood why he made some of the decisions that he did, but they didn’t make me like him. And after reading this book and getting to know more of his past, I can understand his decisions even more. I think he has spent many years being lonely and locking himself away, convincing himself that he doesn’t need a mate, so when Ash shows up, it shocks the hell out of him, and well it should. I think that he needed her, in more ways than one.

I really do think that this wrapped up this cadre’s season really well. And it did it without sacrificing Ash and Tobias’s story, which would’ve upset me. They truly deserved to have their own story.

Cari Silverwood-Isak and Red

Cari is back to her Mesmer world, and she hasn’t missed a step when it comes to that world. Isak and Red is dark, twisted, kinky af, and pretty much everything I really wanted to have. While there are several Mesmer books, this one is a direct sequel to Used.

For those who don’t remember what the Mesmers are or who aren’t familiar with the world, here’s a quick catch up. The Mesmers are always men. They have a thing in their brain that lets them control women. And I mean, completely control women. They can also wipe the memories of women. And, predictably, they are all pretty much fucked up AF. Some of the stuff these guys do is dark, disturbing, twisted, and kinky.

In this book, we have Isak and Red. He’s the Mesmer, and she’s the woman that he’s fascinated with and has controlled for years now. He’s done all kinds of things to her and to other women over the years, and now, he’s trying to figure out what to do next. He’s actually, if you can believe it, a little bored. He’s really done everything possible, twice. But then, some bad guys show up, and they want to figure out how Isak does what he does, and they have no problems hurting him or Red to find out how.

Isak and Red manage to get away, and Isak wants to try something new. He wants Red to teach him how to be human again. Which, you know, is an interesting choice. The thing is, he’s telling Red that he wants to be more human, but he’s telling himself that he doesn’t.

Oh man, there are so many things I want to say about this, because I am left with so many questions and thoughts after having read it, but if I talk about the things that I want to, then I’m going to spoil every damn thing. And I do mean every.damn.thing.

So, let’s just say that these guys are living in my head, and I have woken up a couple of times in the night wondering about the ending since I read it. I wonder how much anyone knows about what has happened or what their life is like now. It is definitely one of those stories that is going to live in my head for a while, and I will probably randomly wonder about my questions for years.

I would love to see more about Isak and Red, but I think that we are probably done with their story. I don’t know that Cari could do anything more with them, really, not without completely messing up who they are now, and I’m not entirely sure that I want them to be messed up, you know?

OK, nothing under the picture. Go check it out! Happy reading!

Nicolina Martin-Saving Sandra

Saving Sandra is the second book in Nicolina’s West Coast Doms book. For a refresher, Commanding Casey was the first one. In that book, Cole was the male main character, and his ex-wife is Sandra, the female main character in this one. CC got darkish at times, but this one? It gets lightish at times. And I’m not going to lie, I straight up fucking hated Samuel for a chunk of time. I had complicated feelings about him for most of the book. And I fucking love that. So, let’s talk about the book, shall we?

Sandra is an actress, and she’s currently filming. The director isn’t listening to her and her co-start is faking a relationship with her for the publicity of the movie. She’s being followed by paparazzi, she has to show up at events, and she has to be “ON” all the time. She has her two kids every other week, so when she doesn’t have her kids, she tries to do all the business type stuff so that she can spend time with her kids while they are there. All in all, Sandra is just fucking exhausted. She is never just herself anymore, she has to always be Sandra the Star or Sandra the Mommy.

So, one night, when she’s drunk, Sandra starts an account on a kinky dating site. When she checks the next day, she takes a few minutes and all of a sudden, starts talking to Savage666. And, well, let’s just say that Savage fits him quite well. He outright tells her that he wants to hurt her, that he enjoys hurting her, and the things that he says he wants to do sound scary but Sandra is all for them, even if she is scared spitless. (That’s OK, she’s wet in other places)

We first meet Savage666, AKA Samuel, when he’s talking to a psych doc, talking about his past. And well, he’s not necessarily nice, but the nice lady psych doc is intrigued by him. And she’s more than happy to be intrigued by him, at least, until he leaves.

He’s cruising through a kinky site and he finds Breathless and starts to talk to her. He decides that she’s going to be his, so he slowly starts to reel her in. Any time that Breathless has an objection, he either has an answer or he just cuts contact until she works through them on her own and then waits for her to contact him. He is always completely bluntly honest with her and tells her what he wants from her and what he wants her to do.

I like Sandra, most of the time. I really get the being tired part and trying to find something for herself part. It’s hard to try to be everything to everyone. She has to hide herself all of the time, and that’s just so hard. I don’t blame her for being tired to her soul. There are a few times when I kinda want to smack her, but that’s my annoyance speaking. It wasn’t any big thing at any point, it was just something that would trigger that. I never thought that she was too stupid to live, but I did think that there were a couple of times that she really just skirted that line really closely. Then again, I don’t know that the story would’ve worked as well if she made different decisions at that point.

OK, let’s talk about Samuel. I do have very complex feelings about him. At the beginning, I really hated him. But then we hit a point where boom, I feel a whole different way about him. In the beginning of the book, and when he’s first talking to Sandra, he talks about how much of a monster he is and how horrible, terrible, awful, and bad he is. I think that maybe he wasn’t as bad and monstrous as he said he was. Don’t get me wrong, he’s not a nice guy. He does bad shit. He’s an asshole. Period. But, I don’t think that he’s quite as bad as he says or thinks he is. I think he uses it to protect himself, subconsciously. I mean, I think that the top of his brain really believes it, but the bottom of his brain knows better and it’s trying to protect itself. Does that make sense? It does in my head, and that’s the important part.

I was trying to explain to my husband about my feelings about Samuel, and I think that I did OK, which helped me write the last paragraph, but like I said, complex af.

OK, nothing below the pic today. Go check it out! Happy reading!

Felicity Brandon-Her Dark Nemesis

This is the 3rd of the Gates of Fortorus books. I don’t know if Felicity is leaving this world alone now that we’ve gotten through Her Dark Nemesis or not. I’m not sure if I want to be really mad at her if she is or to be satisfied with the ending of this one. The ending is a wow, for sure, and frankly, I think that I’m happy with either way that Felicity choose to go. Of course, that didn’t stop me from yelling “Damn you, Felicity!!!” when I got to the end. My husband has now gotten used to me yelling lke that during books and doesn’t even try to get me to explain anymore, which is good, because it’s hard to sometimes. As a reminder, there will likely be spoilers for the previous books. I’ll try to limit them, but because of the way that they are written, it’s hard.

So, Caroline has managed to get out of the Commander’s headquarters. Of course, it didn’t hurt that she beaned him with a decanter and she’s pretty sure that he’s dead. All she knows is that now is her big chance, and she’s not going to miss out on it. So, she grabs some of Harper’s clothes and leaves through the window. Since she’s been with him, she knows roughly how to get out of the grounds, so she heads that way. That’s when she discovers that she’s not the only person out there.

Caroline and her companion manage to get out of the Fortorous grounds and find a farm to hide on, with a sort of friendly farmer, who tells them where they are, and gives them some food. But, then come the guards, and things change. Caroline ends up back in the Commander’s quarters.

Meanwhile, while Caroline is out and about, running free, Harper has been found bloodied and unconscious on the floor of his quarters. His private doctor comes and helps him out, and tells him that he needs to get checked out better, but there’s just one smalll problem. Or more like one huge problem. The President is about to show up and Harper doesn’t want him to know that anyone has escaped, let alone Caroline. It would be a huge problem, altogether, and it would just make the President even more paranoid and crazy, which yeah. Luckily, for Harper at least, they are able to capture Caroline and bring her back.

There are incels, and then there is this douchebag. I mean the President is basically the Incel King. The only way that he’s getting any play right now is because he can force women into it, literally. I mean, the women just have no choice. I don’t think that there is anyone who is going to orchestrate a takeover like the one described here, but I guarantee that there are men in the world who would be more than happy to do everything that the asshat is doing in this book, without a qualm. Ugh. I really want to use some KGB-esque poisoning methods on him. (Dear FBI, please understand that I’m only talking about the douchebag president in this book and I would never, ever hurt President Biden.)

Caroline still has all the fire and spunk that she has had in the previous two books. I think it’s going to take a lot of work for that to go away. She is still torn between the different parts of herself, and I still understand why. She really is in an unteneable situation, and it’s not something that I can ever even imagine what I’d do in her place. I mean, I’d like to assume that I’d be like Caroline and fiesty, because well, I am fiesty and I have a small issue with authority, but until you are in her shoes, you just can’t know. I just have one question for Felicity though. So many of her heroines are writers. Are we seeing some serious fantasy here? LOL.

Harper. Well. I can’t go into what I’m feeling abaout him right now without getting into serious spoilers. Let’s just say that the things I like about him are still there.

Oh, I don’t even know what I should put here. I know what I want to put where, but that would be more spoilers than I ever put anywhere. Let’s just say that I’m still stunned by the end.

OK, that’s all for this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!

Zoe Blake-Savage Vow

It’s been a minute since I had a Zoe story on here, and Savage Vow is definitely the one to put up here, because daaaammmmnnnn. This is really hot, incredibly filthy, and just intense.

So, we start with Samara at 18. She’s just two weeks shy of graduating from high school, and she’s looking forward to go to art school, at least, she’s planning on going to art school. On this particular night, she’s at her friend Nadia’s house for a party, and she and her boyfriend are trying to sneak away for a few private minutes. They find an unlocked room, but when they get in there, Samara tells the guy that they have to leave right now. She recognizes it as Gregor’s room, and they need to be out of there. He doesn’t want to leave and doesn’t take no for an answer, which was all kinds of wrong on his part, because in comes Gregor. And he’s pissed. Turns out that Gregor has basically just bought Samara’s hand in marriage and he’s mad that anyone is touching what’s his.

Samara goes home, finds out that her broke and owes some very bad people a whole lot of money. He offered her in marriage to a lot of people, and Gregor was the one to buy it. And Samara is not happy. She meets with her friend Nadia (who happens to be Nadia’s older brother) and their other friend Yelena, and they make a plan for Yelena and Samara to run away.

Fast forward 3 years, Samara is now in Chicago. She figures that now that has been so long she’s safe. She’s still not going out under her own name, but she’s at least working in art and painting at home. One day, she’s got an appointment set up to show some art, and guess who walks in? Yeah, Gregor.

Gregor has been searching for Samara for 3 years now. It was embarrassing that she ran away from him, and he needs to find her because she’s his, and he needs to show everyone that he has things under control. So, the first thing he does when he finds her, after spanking her, is to dress her up and take her to a museum gala.

Oh, I really, really, really was set to hate Gregor. And don’t get me wrong, I don’t like him all that much a lot of the time. Buuuuutttt…. He makes it kind of hard to hate him all the time. He’s an asshole, yes, a huge asshole, even, but he also is super protective of Samara and he knows so much about her. It could almost be called stalkerish, but I’m not 100% it crosses that line. But Gregor really does know Samara and he really does want to make sure she has what she needs. Not necessarily what she wants, but what she needs.

I do like Samara. I think that she is smart, creative, and pretty strong. I also think that there are times when she doesn’t quite see the whole picture and she’s a little naive. I mean, I don’t think that she’s naive all the time, after all, she did stay hidden from a Russian mob boss for 3 years. I understand the way that she feels about Gregor a lot of the time, and I think I would feel the same way about him.

OK, nothing under the picture today. Go check it out! Happy reading!
