Review: The Archivist by Christy Sloat

The Archivist

Authour: Christy SloatGenre: Upper YA
Series: The Librarian Chronicles #2 

"With the whimsy of Alice in Wonderland and the romance of Outlander dive back into the next installment in the Librarian Chronicles."

Savannah Preston has a rare and precious gift: The ability to time travel through books. She, and others who share this unique ability, are faced with the insurmountable task of preserving history. They are known collectively as The Librarians.

While researching infamous Scottish outlaw Sir Malcolm Wash during the raging conflicts of the 14th Century, Savannah loses the only thing that tethers her to her own time. She must rely on her knowledge of both the present and the past to survive long enough to find a way home. Along the way, she enlists the help of a misfit named Eoin. With his guidance, she might just get home. It’s a risky and dangerous adventure, but then, so is Eoin…



About the Author

Christy Sloat resides in New Jersey with her husband, two daughters and her Chihuahua, Sophie. Christy has embraced the love of reading and writing since her youth and was inspired by her grandmother's loving support. She loves adventurous journeys with her friends and can be known to get lost inside a bookstore. She is the bestselling author of fourteen novels including, The Librarian, The Visitors Series, The Past Lives Series and the award-winning Slumber Duology.

The Librarians are responsible from writing the correct history. They are to touch nothing just to observe and come back. What's even better is our heroine has no qualms about her duty. She's happy to do it. First of all as a huge time travel scenarios fan I am not even going to talk about how even a little disturbance in the past can change everything in the future let alone a people no matter how insignificant. I will also try to talk about this with as little spoilers as possible. 
She went there amazing, she fell in love expected. But after that she made such a decision that it made me want to stop reading. Because it made absolutely no sense. I am over physical laws making no sense at this point but a human making important decisions making no sense... That I cannot handle. I did finish the book and it is filled with likeable characters so you don't hate anyone. I can't tell if it is a good or a bad thing though. You know sometimes hating a character just shows you how good the book is. On the other hand sometimes a bad character that's bad for the sake of being bad just annoys you. Other than that thing in the middle of the book which draw me crazy it was fun light read. I also felt like there could have been more. More info and depth about side characters, it could be longer. I felt like it was too short. Overall a short light read which took me half a day to finish but not worthy unless you have lots of time on your hands. To be honest it is a 3 out of 2.5.

Blitz: The Billionaire’s Deal by Crystal Kaswell

The Billionaire’s Deal

Author: Crystal Kaswell
Publication date: July 17th 2015
Genres: New Adult, Romance

Kat Wilder is screwed. No parents to take care of her. No money to pay the mortgage for the apartment she shares with her little sister. No chance at a future. She doesn’t even have time to daydream about her passions. She barely gets by waiting tables, getting treated like crap by the wealthy people who think she’s nothing.
Then she runs straight into billionaire tech CEO Blake Sterling.
Aloof, distant, and utterly in control, Blake is impossible to read. He wants Kat to play the role of his girlfriend and he’s more than willing to dig her out of debt. His intentions are good. According to him.
They need to convince everyone they’re madly, deeply in love. Their entire relationship would be a lie. And a big one. The one true thing—the two of them alone, together—that part would be amazing.
It would be Blake’s way. Blake’s terms. Blake utterly in control, inside and outside the bedroom.
There’s no way she can agree. There’s no way she can refuse.

Review: Lick by Kylie Scott


Title: Lick
Author: Kylie Scott
Series: Stage Dive #1
Publication: May 6th, 2014
Category: Adult


Evelyn Thomas's plans for celebrating her twenty-first birthday in Las Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man in her room, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened.

In Kylie Scott's Lick, one thing is certain: being married to one of the hottest rock stars on the planet is sure to be a wild ride.

Rating: 4.5/5

First of all let me tell you I absolutely love this kind of books. So believe me I had my fair share of the genre. But I cannot deny reading this book was a pleasure. I read it twice in the last 6 months. It doesn't have that weird I am rich and famous musician I can do whatever I want nonsense. It is really down to earth. Every character in the book is human. They have issues, worries, friends and enemies. This is what makes this series so popular. 

So there's Evelyn naive with a hangover and David Ferris down to earth and sadly unlike Evelyn he remembers everything. Therefore you can think of what happens when you wake up married to a rock star and remember nothing. This is a must read.

Review: Neighbors with Benefits by Marissa Clarke

Neighbors with Benefits

Author: Marissa Clarke
Published by: Entangled: Lovestruck
Publication date: June 30th 2015
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

A satisfying category romance from Entangled’s new Lovestruck imprint…

Love thy sexy jerk of a neighbor…

CEO Michael Anderson might be something of a “control freak.” Still, he’s not quite sure why his therapist thinks dogsitting will fix anything—especially since he and the canine share a kind of mutual loathing. And to make matters worse, a house sitter moves in next door disrupting his peace—and his dates—with the worst possible music at the worst possible time… every time.

Free-spirited artist Mia Argaropolis has settled into the perfect gig—housesitting in NYC’s Upper West Side while working as an art therapist. Too bad she’s stuck living next door to a bossy control freak with a penchant for calling building security when she blasts music to drown out the noises coming through his bedroom wall.

Post-apocalyptic dinner rolls that nearly take her kitchen with them, a douchebag ex, and a Shih Tzu with the personality of Godzilla attack Mia in one day, and her unlikely neighbor comes to the rescue. Like it was her fault. And now, somehow, they find themselves engaged? Both agree, this neighborly feud just got taken to a whole new level.
There is our girl Mia. Low self esteem, messy and witty. And the perfect neighbour Michael; CEO, playboy, control freak. What happens when two almost exact opposites come together. Do they fit or break? As you can guess hate, love or both. :)
I liked the sexual tension created between them and the fun dialogs. You could actually feel the tension and laugh at the same time. Though the order of the things how they got "stuck" in the same house how things developed was not very satisfying. It all seemed like not she was stuck with him but a bit forced and rushed to get them to live together. Other than that which eat up a star I think it was good. I read the all thing in a go therefore definitely not boring. So if you like the genre the synopsis go for it. But don't expect much other than a love novel.

Rating: 3.5/5
