Book Review No. 62

Kiss Crush Collide by Christina Meredith

Summary:  Kiss.  What Leah did--only she really shouldn't have--one hot night at a country club party.  Crush.  What Leah has--only she really shouldn't have--on the guy with the green eyes, the guy who is not her perfect boyfriend, the guy who does not fit in her picture-perfect life, the guy her sisters will only mock and her mother will never approve of.  Not in a million years.  Collide.  What happens when everything you always thought you wanted--having cool friends, being class valedictorian and homecoming queen--runs smack into everything it turns out you really do want.  (taken from book jacket)

First Line:  "Leah!"  My mother rolls her eyes, sounding completely exasperated as she steps down the three thick stone slabs at our front door.

My Critique:  Slow motion...L-A-M-E.  I've seen made for TV Disney Channel movies that had more chemistry.

Dear Leah Johnson,
Please forgive me if I can't feel bad for you and your skinny rich white girl problems.

Someone who knew even at 17 what it was like to have REAL problems

I am in no way affiliated with with afore mentioned author...except that one time in Vegas------------uh, nevermind...

Book Review No. 61

Fifty Shades of Grey by E. L. James

Summary:  When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating.  The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him.  Unable to resist Ana's quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too--but on his own terms.  Shocked yet thrilled by Grey's singular erotic tastes, Ana hesitates.  For all the trappings of success--his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, his loving family--Grey is a man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control.  When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian Grey's secrets and explores her own dark desires.  (taken from the back of the book)

First Line:  "I scowl with frustration at myself in the mirror."

Be forewarned...this review is a doozy and contains spoilers galore.  It's LONG as I've compiled some other review type info as well.
