With a book and a tattoo.......

 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. 

Charred Heart (Heart of Fire #1) by Lizzy Ford

Charred Heart (#1, Heart of Fire) - Lizzy Ford

I received this book for an honest review.


 What can I say here but for once I actually liked the story way better than I did the characters. Crazy, crazy. So with the characters we have Skylar and Chace. First we will start with Skylar. She is a trained dragon slayer out on the hunt for an elusive dragon. She works with a special team of slayers that are out for shifters of any kind. The odd thing about this was that they were trained not really to kill the shifters unless they had no choice. They were suppose to capture them and bring them back to The Field where they were to be rehabilitated and put back in society. Kind of sounded like a pound to me lol. As far as Skylar goes, well I really wasn't her biggest fan. She was just odd to me, there really wasn't much to her and she just left me feeling kind of empty. Like I said she was odd. Now I liked Chace a little more. But then again he was a hot guy shifter with a tattoo lol. But to me he was lacking passion but maybe that's just how his character was meant to be. It would kind of make sense, since he was kind of in the mindset of giving up. So yeah maybe I do get him a little more now. But his deal is that he has lived for a 1000 years with a curse that was placed on him by a jilted lover. And he has finally realized that he can't take it anymore. Everyone he has ever cared about is dyeing. He feels alone, empty and he doesn't want to live anymore. With this decision he goes in search of the one one person who may have the cure. But likr always with a cure there is a price to pay. And this is where a mistaken meeting with Skylar happens and he realizes that he has found the one thing he has always wanted and now he must give it all up. And let me add that this line right here, almost made me pass out: "She fucks like a dragon, that's for sure"


 I thought this take on dragon shifters was awesome. I loved the whole "other half of your heart" thing. That had me acting all swoony and girly lol. So yeas, I swooned, I teared up and I got mad. And there were a couple of face fanning incidents, whoo! But overall to me this story lacked the passion that shifter usually show. And like I realized earlier, maybe that is how it was supposed to be. But I really hate that it was just barley there. And in the beginning Skylar and Chace's relationship almost seemed to forced. I did love all the twist and turns this book had though, I was pleasantly surprised quite a few times. I would think that I had it figured out but I was wrong at almost every turn. And be warned ladies and gentlemen that this book ends with one hell of a cliff hanger that will have you launching your kindle. Sadly, I did this exact thing. But there were no causalities, everyone is in one piece. So now I must sit here as patiently as I can and wait for th e next book. Grrr Lizzy, why must you torture me? By the way is Mason going to have a story? (Hint, hint)
