That's What I'm Talking About

I generally review romance, paranormal and urban fantasy. I tend to pick review books that I want to read, so generally my reviews will be positive. I always give my honest opinion: good, bad, and indifferent. 

 

Note: on my blog I use a letter grading system. I've listed the ratings below. For sites with stars, I have listed the equivalent rating. If I didn't finish the book, I will not rate it with stars.

 

A+  Personal Favorite (5 stars)
A    Loved It (4.5 or 5 stars)
A-   Enjoyed A Lot (4 or 4.5 stars)
B+  Liked It A Lot (4 stars)
B    Liked It -- Recommend (4 stars)
B-   Liked It -- But I had a few small issues (3 or 3.5 stars)
C+  Liked It -- But I had issues (3 or 3.5 stars)
C    Finished It -- Liked some, didn't like some (3 stars)
C-   Finished It -- Liked a little, didn't like a lot (2 or 2.5 stars)
D    Not A Big Fan (2 stars)
E    Don’t Waste Your Time (1 star)

Claimed: Outlaws Series #1 - Tantor Audio, Elle Kennedy, C.S.E. Cooney

I've hit the 49% mark - start of chapter 9. I'm not really enjoying this one so far. Part of the reason is the ridiculousness of the situation - always in danger, yet constantly thinking about or having sex. Part of the reason is the narrator - I can't stand her performance of the hero, Connor. I like her narrator's voice, but the combination of her soft, laid back voice of Connor (who is extremely dominant) and his asinine dialogue, I'm not thrilled. So I'm taking a break and I'll decide later if I want to finish or DNF.
