She’d get intensely terrified at the drop of a hat. I felt there wasn’t enough character to character interaction for there to be any love. Reading interactions with the overly dramatic Shane and a non-developed character extremely painful. Instead of just calling it “Hell” she said “Underworld” and things like that. The world is so well imagined in the little I can really tell while reading this book the deep love that they felt for each other.
Logan, however, is a boring sociopath. The Namarielle Chronicles of Lashai Book 1. Femptation 28, Chris rated it liked it. I hate the insta love thing!
I didn’t have extremely high hopes for this book, due to the mixed reviews, but I did expect the narrator to at least be tolerable.
The ending was okay, it actually got a little interesting, but the book was slow, and some parts were just cheesy, she was begging him not to leave her, how long have they known each other, not long enough shesh, I guess it was cute, sad that he died, and they can’t really va,des together.
Of course, this story needn’t be flawless, but in the same token, there are just a few things here and there that I couldn’t temptatiin over. Aliisa Fathoms Dark and Deep. I entered a Goodreads First Reads giveaway for this book alisq it sounded like it was going to be really awesome, and I won a free copy.
You can definitely tell she is not the same even before the accident. Alisa takes her readers on a pretty intense and heart wrenching journey and I found trmptation sitting on the edge of my seat during certain parts.
There were many ideas incorporated into The Temptation, and each concept concluded itself–except for the conclusion, of course. I felt throughout the story that the author was prohibiting her character development. Shane goes throug travis’s death how and why it happened. Of course that’s temptatino standard in paranormal romances, but I felt that Valdes does a good job of it. She already has a boyfriend that she wants to break up with. The only problem is Shane can’t explain Travis and all the mystery that follows him temptatiln her family and friends.
Only A Breath Apart. And I liked Travis for that.
The story had no real depth. Like Chicanos and Latinas that you’d meet anywhere There is just entirely too much going on; the love story made me want to pull my hair out at times and the MC was pathetic with hardly any character development for ANY of the characters. I thought this book was ok at the beginning.
She and her younger sister Tilly are apisa trying She encounters Travis, and instantly falls in love with him. I just wanted Shane to shut up and die. His name is Travis. When one character is making the whole story for me and that character is pulled out for certain circumstances, my interest in what I’m reading evaporates.
Star ratings in yellow are from our Staff Reviewers. She finds out that the cowboy is called Travis and that he died a yr ago with his brother in a car accident. Jen Top 10 Reviewer View all my laisa Travis is nothing special, in my opinion. If you’re looking for an exciting read with a well craft paranormal twist, a beautiful love story, and plenty of danger, I highly recommend alisaa this book up!
The Temptation by Alisa Valdes.
Also, her obsession with Travis? She does what she wants, then whines and apologizes like an idiot later. Though I’ve not yet been to NM in person, I felt like I was able to envision what it looked like based on Alisa’s vivid details. And that’s all I really have to say about it.
Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. I received this book for free from GoodReads giveaways in return for my unbiased honest opinion. Totally takes ghosts and revenants to a new level!! Actually, I think he was the only character we could connect with in any way. That being said, there were also things that I did enjoy about the novel such as Travis’s character being wonderfully developed, the concept of the whole novel being intriguing and heartbreaking at the same time, and the incorporation of characters that surprise you.
After I got done writing my review I went and looked at other reviews and found many of the same complaints there. Shane is near death after crashing her car on a long stretch of empty highway in rural New Mexico when she is miraculously saved by a mysterious young man who walks out of nowhere.
But there is a catch, if Travis were to find his Kindred, aka soul mate, then it would be okay for him to kiss her and everything.
View all 12 comments. Kelsey, like Shane, is dumb as a rock and obnoxious. Before its publication inthe film rights to The Dirty Girls Social Club were optioned by Columbia Pictures with Jennifer Lopez and Laura Ziskin as producers,  but the option expired without going into temptatiin.
I could never get into it.
