The ExceptionsThe Exceptions by David Cristofano

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


The Exceptions is told from the perspective of Jonathan Bovaro. He is the romantic, charming male lead that readers were introduced to in The Girl She Used To Be. He is also a mob boss's son. This book is split into four sections. The first section gives us more of a prologue to the first book. We get to see Jonathan as a younger man, get to track Melody through the years along side him. The next two sections are The Girl She Used To Be told from Jonathan's POV. We get to see into his psyche, get to see what he was up to in the scenes where he was missing. The fourth section wraps up both Jonathan and Melody's stories in a way that absolutely made me wibble. Wibbling, in this case, is a very good thing. I'm so very happy that I stumbled upon these books. Both are top favorites in 2016.

A Is For Alibi by Sue Grafton - I actually took a short break from this book in order to read The Exceptions. I'm hoping to toss myself in. I'm also hoping some of the suspense/thrills pick up.

Blue-Eyed Devil (Travises, #2)Blue-Eyed Devil by Lisa Kleypas

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Admittedly, I haven't read "Sugar Daddy" yet. I was introduced to this series because someone had recommended "Smooth Talking Stranger." After I finished that, I felt I had a choice between reading more about Haven and reading more about Gage. Given how much I liked Haven in "STS", I knew without a doubt that "BED" had to be next on my list. This book didn't disappoint either.



As someone with an interest in personality disorders, I was pleased with the way that Kleypas explored Nick's characterization. He was EXACTLY the asshole I expected him to be. I wanted to kick him in the nuts so bad!!



What made me even happier was that Kleypas shows Haven's strength. Her perseverance. The challenge she faced in leaving the abusive relationship. I liked that Kleypas didn't sugar-coat the trauma and the psychological impact that Haven's relationship with Nick had on her.



I grew fond of Hardy Cates and found him to be an acceptable match for Haven.



I'm definitely looking forward to reading "Sugar Daddy" now. :)
