bookworm review: raine by j.c. valentine

Raine by J.C. Valentine
I liked this book (like really liked this book). Writing. Characters. Everything. J.C. Valentine knocked it out of the park with this one. Raine perfectly described teenage angst and how immature/naive the youth can be.

Who I liked most: Raine! And Jarrett too!  I was rooting for her the entire time. Dealt with a tricky hand, she never gave up on herself or life. She was resilient. She kept her head high. I loved her. Truth be told, I would have had a hard time trusting again as well. I'm glad Jarrett pushed through. Jarrett was the sweetest man ever. So supportive. So giving. So lovable. And unlike his rich parents and brother, he gave a damn! Go Jarrett!!! So glad he was cut from a different cloth than those arseholes. 

Who I hated the most: Man this was a toss-up between Camron and his parents. Douchebags. Rich people acting higher than high. Well written antagonists aka villains aka worst people ever. I loathed them, yet I loved whenever the Moss family (as a unit) interacted with Raine.  Weird right? Anywho, I promise that you will abhor them too once you finish reading it.

My rating: 4.5 stars

Time it took to read: 8 hours

You’ll love this book if you've ever wonder whats happens when silly teenage drama spills over into the real world.  Go get it! 

P.S. I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

You can buy this book on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iBooks, and Kobo. Oh, and don't forget to add it on Goodreads.

p.s. prisoner by skye warren and annika martin is now available to buy (updated to include review)

He seethes with raw power the first time I see him—pure tattooed menace and rippling muscles in shackles. He’s dangerous. He’s wild. He’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.

So I hide behind my prim glasses and my book like I always do, because I have secrets, too. Then he shows up in the prison writing class I volunteered to teach and he blows me away with his honesty. He tells me secrets in his stories, and it’s getting harder to hide mine. I shiver when he gets too close, with only the cuffs and the bars and the guards holding him back. At night, I can’t stop thinking about him in his cell.

But that’s the thing about an animal in a cage—you never know when he’ll bite. He might use you to escape. He might even pull you into a forest and hold a hand over your mouth, so you can’t call for the cops. He might make you come so hard, you can’t think.

And you might crave him more than your next breath.

You can purchase this book at Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Oh, and don't forget to add it on Goodreads!

My review:

When I first start reading this book, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I knew there was a captor and a captive. I knew they would want each other (maybe even fall in love). I never thought that I would root for the Alpha Male aka Grayson and sometimes be disappointed in him. I never thought that I would wonder what exactly the heroine aka Abigail saw in Grayson and then a few minutes later say, “Oh, I get it.”  I never expected a romance coupled with suspense. But that’s what I got, and I liked Prisoner because of that.
