I am never really any good with these things, I kind of feel like I am at a job interview. So let's see, what can I tell you about me and my little blog thingy? Ok well I am an avid reader and have been doing since I first learned how. About a year ago I became a part of the review world. I am in no way a professional and I pretty much do it for the fun of it. I have no rules and no guidelines for myself, well except for I always have to be completely honest. And you can tell by my reviews that I have posted so far that I have no problem at all with that. I add my personality to every review and I know things don't always make sense but I bet you laughed(hopefully). I usually stick to romance books but I have been know to pick up others if the cover and synopsis garb my attention. I currently help out on a couple blogs and reviews teams plus I am an occasionally guest reviewer on one.
To tell you about me well, I am a 30+ year old stay at home mom. I went completely blind about two years ago. But with a couple of eyes surgeries I now have complete vision back in one eye. I have a serious weakness for tattoos and I am currently proudly showing off 12 of my own. Yeahhhh, so that's it for now.
I received this book for an honest review.
What can I say about this book that hasn't already been said before? Ok, well I loved the characters. Velaney(Love the name) was just all awesomesauce. I loved her and was actually really proud of her for surviving what she did all those years. I am not sure how she did it without breaking. Strong women are the best ever. After surviving what she did, it seems her life wasn't done testing her just yet. For the first time ever, feelings and emotions are thrown into the mix and this has Vel running and questioning everything. She figured she would just go through life and live in her silent hell and merely exist. But little did she know her life would one day truly begin with just a little spark, literally and figuratively. One night when a neighbors apartment catches fire, she meets...wait for it, wait for it....Eric. Good lord a hot firefighter. I was already feeling a little swoony at this point. I mean he may be a fireman, a hot one, but he rescued Vel. And then you find out he has TATTOOS, wears cowboy boots and is from Texas. He has a southern accent people. I swooned all the way to the floor, I was sad when I realized he wouldn't be rescuing me though. Now even though I love him, I found Eric to be an odd little duck. He just did the quirkiest things, but I did like them. The way he seemed to devote himself to Vel was great. I am not gonna lie and say I didn't put in my notes that she needed to run like her ass was on fire when he did that stuff with the skank and acted all jerky. But he did redeem himself with the first date. So I am on Team Eric again. It was really great to see how he was there for her and no matter what time he knew her he was there to help her find herself again. But I keep wondering, if maybe there is more to him then we know at this point. Oh and I can not forget her best friend Cass, I love LOVE her mouth. And piss on Aiden, booooo. So we gotta wait and see what this spark eventually does, sighhhh.
Now with the story. It was a great story, butttt it did drag in some parts and I will admit to skimming through some of the paragraphs. Besides that, it did flow really well and it kept you all in the story. I was constantly asking myself what was gonna happen? Who is that? What's she going to do? And why, whyyyyy? There was a lot of yelling on my part about things also lol. I cringed and there were a lot of tears and all that great stuff. And guhh the sexual tension almost had me calling the fire department. Lord these two. When they finally got together, i melted. I had to sit out for a few minutes. So needless to say I am ready to read the next in this series. I guess I better keep a glass of water and an oxygen tank handy.
