REVIEW: The Devil's Pawn by Elizabeth Finn

The Devil's PawnThe Devil's Pawn by Elizabeth Finn
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I really have no words for this book...


Yeah. Generally, her books are pretty good. But this one was just... disturbing? I don't know what word to use!


When the lead male character all but rapes her at the beginning to "rid her of that pesky virginity" so that she can then become basically a prostitute.... I almost called it quits right then. And then when he proceeded to not let her find 'satisfaction' shall we say? - WTF?


On top of everything, he supposedly loves her so very much, but he allows another man to 'purchase her services' and then WATCHES WHILE SHE SERVICES SAID MAN!!!


I just... OMG! I can't...

REVIEW: Elite by Rachel Van Dyken

Elite (Eagle Elite #1)Elite by Rachel Van Dyken
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

OK... so when I started the book out, I felt:


To say that I was NOT HAPPY with various behaviors would be an understatment!

How I felt about The Elect *said with sarcastic finger quotes*:


How I felt about Trace?

BUCK THE FUCK UP, GIRL! GET A FUCKING BACKBONE!!! *stomps off in feminine dissatisfaction*

However!! - (there's usually always a however), my opinion is changing... but I'm now so:


So... that's where I am at right now. Lets see what happens next. I have about 45% or so left to go.

~*~*~*~ UPDATE: Finished ~*~*~*~

OK... WOW. (0.0)

Have you ever read a book and you KNOW you're supposed to be all:

But all you can really muster up, since you figured that it was going to be either this or one other scenario, is this:

You know that there are scenes that are expected to be read like:

You, however, read them with all the excitement of:


Tracey: (Lead Female)

Nixon: (Lead Male)

Everyone Else:


Overall Thoughts?

This story had a lot of potential that I don't think it lived up to. Prime example, without going into spoilers, there comes a time/scene when Tracey should have been all:

Instead, she went all:

I mean.. c'mon! Give what her family history ended up being?? - Grow some 'nads, chica! Jesus!

And then there's a situation between her and the lead male, Nixon. When she SHOULD have been all:


But instead went all:


How I felt about it all as a whole:

Overall, lots of a potential lack of living up to it. It's not an awful read by any means, but it could be so much more, I feel!
