Ella gave me TOO MUCH

Another successful story!! sent me another Arc. 

Oh what a great experience as usual. This time was different!!

 Does anybody remember the 2000 movie Momento starring Guy Pearce and Carrie-Anne Moss. The end of the story was in the beginning and the beginning was at the end. It was a pure mind fuck, and yet so satisfying to watch. 

This is like the same. The story starts from the present. Then unfolds backwards. As I read this story it just amazed me how everything connected so perfectly. 

I am wondering if Ms Ella wrote the end first and the beginning last or Visa Versa. 

Quinn and Hunter are far from your usually characters that are just plain sexy and get together. They have so much back story that it melts your heart. 

Definitely a recommended book. 

Really started off great but ended up not so great.

I WAS A BITCH(REVIEW) by Emily Ruben

At first I was reading this and I thought “WHAT A GREAT STORY” this was gonna be . I loved how it started off. Lacey was in a coma for 2 months woke up with a 2 year memory loss. I felt like this was going to be great, trying to figure out all the secrets from her friends, family and boyfriend. I myself had monkey’s jumping up and down when her “friend” Finn was around. As her memory was giving her hints to the life she had before the accident I was on the edge of my seat. 60% of the book was read and that’s when I realized the secrets weren’t as great as I hoped it would be. Surprise!!!!!!!! It was basic High School Drama.. Derek (her actual boyfriend) was a big self absorbed football jerk, her best friend Melissa was sleeping with the big jerk behind her back. And Lacey and her friends were the biggest Queen Bitches at school. (not really the greatest secrets). Lacey ended up staying with Derek for a scholarship to NYU. Really?! That was a bitch move???…I am still questioning it. FINN actually was the one Lacey was in love with. Ummm Duh!!!! He was perfect.

I think the concept of the book has potential, but the secrets weren’t as good as I would of hoped. Maybe if Melissa ended up pregnant or Derek did something alittle more horrible then drinking and drugging her. Not say drugging Lacey wasn’t bad enough but her almost being pregnant and him worrying about football wasn’t a great secret. Maybe her finding him doing something as awfully incriminating like walking in on a rape or something REALLY horrible.

The writing was really good a few spelling corrections but otherwise, I like the writing. I just didn’t really like the last 25% of the book. Definitely not the ending I was hoping for. I will have to try to find another one of Ms Rubens other stories. Maybe something with a better ending

I was a bitch…. sounds familiar

Last week I got an email from David Jolly, book marketing guy.  He asked if I would like to read a romance novel and of course I said sure.  I was a bitch!!! By Emily Ruben.  I thought it was a joke. Until I got another email giving a gift card for the book to download from Amazon.

Before reading of course I tried to look this David guy up. Ehhh didn’t last long. Figured might as well read it. If the book was bad it was free and I’m not any contract to have to read it or be nice.

Maybe I WAS A BITCH??? Lol

So I settle in and start to read…

To my surprise it didn’t start like most romance novels. Boy meets girl, girl too strong minded but still let’s boy (with mama issues) run her life. You know usual romance.

Lacey (our main character) goes unconscious, yup straight off the bat. Girl down, girl down!! Hmmm  definitely did not see that coming. She wakes up to a room full of people, you know where? You guessed it…A HOSPITAL. Shocked right? Not really. I know but that’s where it gets weird. Not only is she in the hospital but she finds out she’s been in a coma for 2 months. As the doctor checks in with her and ask her questions. She not only lost 2 months in a coma but she has a memory loss for 2 years.

Beautiful friends Mel and Claire,  model look alike boyfriend, Derek and a “best friend/ god of a man” Finn ,that she can’t remember. What is a girl to do? Lie,  yes that will work! At least it sounds good right? Ummm the jury is still out on that one.

While her memories are gone she tries to get clues about the last 2 years. It seems like everybody but Finn has secrets . While reading this I am loving Finn, I am just hoping he’s not the one with the biggest secret to break Lacey’s heart.

It has become clear that Lacey’s 2 year memory loss might be a really good thing. She was a Total Queen Bitch. As her flash backs are going in and out  she even despised her bitch self most of the time. She was using her useless boyfriend who cheated on her. She is in love with Finn and her parents separated.

I am sitting here imagining waking up to not knowing what happen the last 2 years. Don’t know if I could of played it off so well. In my reality I AM A BITCH . Don’t think 2 years would of changed me.  We will have to see how this all plays out.
