Kindle Fire review!

Sorry, I’ve been MIA all week but the break was very long overdue. I needed the rest and relaxation badly. Anyway, happy new year! At the beginning of the break my Kindle decided to quit on me, and though I blame all of you damn authors and your super hot books that actually crazed my kindle to death, it couldn’t have happened at a better time… Christmas! I took advantage of the opportunity to ask my ever so thoughtful boyfriend for a new kindle. I initially wanted a Kindle Paperwhite but after messing around with the Kindle Fire at BestBuy, I had to have it.

I am loving it so far. As an e-reader, it is amazing! I love that I can read in color and in the dark in bed, though it is a tad on the heavier side so reading on your back with the risk of dropping the kindle fire onto your face is definitely a no-no (it hurts like a b*tch). It also shows recommended books underneath the current book being read so once I’m done with a book I can check out other similar books and add them onto my TBR list on Amazon. However, as a tablet, it’s okay. I might be a little bias on this side of it because my boyfriend owns an iPad and it doesn’t come close to measuring up to it. But it does what (I assume) every other tablet does… email, internet, games/apps, etc. I probably won’t be using it too much for movies or music but I did download and test out NetFlix and Pandora and both work just fine. If you think you are going to be using it to watch movies a lot, you should probably invest in the Kindle Fire HD. But for me, the Kindle Fire is perfect. I love it as an e-reader and all the extra stuff it does is a bonus.

Fallen Too Far by Abbi Glines

Fallen Too Far by Abbi Glines

Book description via Amazon:

To want what you’re not supposed to have…

She is only nineteen.

She is his new stepfather’s daughter.

She is still naïve and innocent due to spending the last three years taking care of her sick mother.

But for twenty-four year old Rush Finlay, she is the only thing that has ever been off limits. His famous father’s guilt money, his mother’s desperation to win his love, and his charm are the three reasons he has never been told no.

Blaire Wynn left her small farmhouse in Alabama, after her mother passed away, to move in with her father and his new wife in their sprawling beach house along the Florida gulf coast. She isn’t prepared for the lifestyle change and she knows she’ll never fit into this world. Then there is her sexy stepbrother who her father leaves her with for the summer while he runs off to Paris with his wife. Rush is as spoiled as he is gorgeous. He is also getting under her skin. She knows he is anything but good for her and that he’ll never be faithful to anyone. He is jaded and has secrets Blaire knows she may never uncover but even knowing all of that…

Blaire just may have fallen too far.

I absolutely loved this plot!  And I loved the main character, Blaire. But who wouldn’t love a strong, gun-toting, cellphoneless, nineteen-year-old girl from Alabama?! She’s been through a lot and deserves much much more than what she’s got at this point in her life. Under very unfortunate circumstances, she looks to her father, whom she hasn’t seen or spoken to in years, for a place to stay while she looks for a job and saves up for her own place. But when she gets there, she encounters the ever so HOT Rush, her ‘stepbrother’ so to speak. At first he wants nothing to do with her, but after he realizes that they may share a mutual disdain towards her father, they try to be civilized. But it doesn’t last long when they can no longer fight the attraction they have for each other.

I wanted to like Rush. I wanted to fall for him with Blaire but something was lacking between them… It took me a while to believe in their relationship and chemistry, it just felt so rushed. I didn’t believe in their strong attraction to each other because they never really got to know each other. I never really got to know Rush so I had a hard time connecting with him. And dialogue that should have been significant in getting to know each other was just put out there so quickly. However, I was eventually able to look past the disconnection, and once I invested myself into this couple, I was able to connect with the story.

Abbi Glines is such an amazing author that even though I didn’t feel a strong connection with Rush and Blaire, the storyline was written well enough to pull me in. When it comes to sexy scenes and angst, Abbi Glines knows exactly what she is doing! I was surprised at how much my heart ached when a plot twist was revealed and prepare yourself for a cliffhanger as well. I am 100% sure the next installment will not disappoint. March 2013 cannot come soon enough! Definitely going to pre-order that sucker.

Wallbanger by Alice Clayton

Wallbanger by Alice Clayton

Book description via Amazon:

Caroline Reynolds has a fantastic new apartment in San Francisco, a KitchenAid mixer, and no O (and we’re not talking Oprah here, folks). She has a flourishing design career, an office overlooking the bay, a killer zucchini bread recipe, and no O. She has Clive (the best cat ever), great friends, a great rack, and no O.

Adding insult to O-less, since her move, she has an oversexed neighbor with the loudest late-night wallbanging she’s ever heard. Each moan, spank, and–was that a meow?–punctuates the fact that not only is she losing sleep, she still has, yep, you guessed it, no O.

Enter Simon Parker. (No, really, Simon, please enter.) When the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts her heard-but-never-seen neighbor. Their late-night hallway encounter has, well, mixed results. Ahem. With walls this thin, the tension’s gonna be thick…

In her third novel, Alice Clayton returns to dish her trademark mix of silly and steamy. Banter, barbs, and strutting pussycats, plus the sexiest apple pie ever made, are dunked in a hot tub and set against the gorgeous San Francisco skyline in this hot and hilarious tale of exasperation at first sight.

I totally fell in love with this book! I LOVED IT! In fact, saying that I loved it would be an understatement; words just can’t justify how much I loved this book. I couldn’t even begin to write  a review for it that would explain its amazingness! If the minds of R.L. Mathewson and Tara Sivec had a love child it would most definitely be Alice Clayton. I swear… I bet you all get together and discuss world domination…

Anyway! This was HILARIOUS and definitely on my favorites list! The author did such an amazing job with all of the characters, especially Caroline and Simon. I loved them! The sexy banter between them made me LOL throughout the book and their chemistry was oozing out of my kindle. I don’t want to say too much because I really don’t want to give a single thing away but let me tell you… prepare yourself! This will bring out your emotions in the best, most enjoyable way! Throughout the story, I laughed, I was sexually frustrated right along with Caroline, I was blown away by the super steamy scenes when they finally stopped living in denial, I even got a little teary-eyed when sh*t hit the fan.

I love Alice Clayton! She is an amazing author and I will no doubt be reading this over and over because I will never get enough Simon and Caroline! Definitely putting her Redhead series (The Unidentified Redhead and The Redhead Revealed on my TBR list like now!
