Review: Good Pussy Bad Pussy In Captivity

Good Pussy Bad Pussy in Captivity - A. Aimee

I have such a love hate relationship with Good Pussy Bad Pussy and when I saw that A. Aimee was putting out a 2nd copy to this series, I was once again intrigued and I couldn’t resist. I’m really trying to collect my thoughts on this book because there are so many.

 

Good Pussy Bad Pussy In Captivity, is a different kind of book all in its own category. Its not the kind of book for the faint of heart, and there are scenes in this book, very bad situations that Rachel has fallen into and they are hard to read to through.

 

This book was a roller coaster ride. It starts you off with some bad news about Albert and from there your heading down a very steep drop. I liked how A. Aimee wrote the sex scenes in this book. It wasn’t just sex and don’t get me wrong, there was a lot of sex, but Rachel’s relationship with Albert and Stefan you felt the love between the three characters. Even though you were reading the sex scenes, it was more like you were reading about how much Albert and Rachel loved each other, or Stefan and Rachel. Does that make sense? I hope it does, lol.

 

In fact, I hadn’t realized how much I missed Stefan and Rachel being together. They are scenes where you can feel the heavy emotions, feel their love, pain and hurt. You can feel the unspoken regret. I mean, at the end of the day they had, still had love and how can there not be any regrets between them? When Rachel was happy and surprised to see Stefan, I was excited for her.

 

Rachel, oh Rachel… I hated a lot of decisions in Good Pussy Bad Pussy, and I still hated her decisions in Good Pussy Bad Pussy in Captivity. She’s a frustrating character and I wanted to grab her and slap some senses into her. I couldn’t understand her mind, I’ve tried but still I found her really childish. I don’t know if its childish, maybe gullible or annoyingly naive. Ugh. I don’t know but Rachel is one really irritating character.

 

This book is darker and it is still a page turner. I wanted to know what would happen to Rachel, despite my feelings for the character. Rachel is a strong character and she will survive. She’s made it this far so it was more, how will everything unfold.

 

During this read, I felt as though Rachel wasn’t really dealing with everything in a normal way. A person in real life who has been through hell and back, like Rachel has been, would have issues. Especially with her sexuality and trying to figure out her pussy. Like the title says, Good Pussy Bad Pussy. What is a good pussy and bad pussy, and how does one understand it? Where are the limits?

 

I was very impressed with Rachel’s confession and questions at the Buddhist monastery with Anton, I was really proud of her. It made her seem more normal/human to me.

Good Pussy Bad Pussy In Captivity was a very nice read and I look forward to reading more books by A. Aimee.

 

* I was given a copy of this book for free, in an exchange for an honest review.

Review: Facade by J Kahele

Facade - J. Kahele

In this story we meet Ally and Liam. Two are the complete opposites and its a wonder how they managed to even ignite a spark. Ally speaks her mind, and doesn’t back down for anyone and Liam, well he’s a reserved business man who is closed off to relationships due to his cheating ex girlfriend. In fact both Alley and Liam have had bad break ups in the past but Alley is more than willing to put in effort with Liam but he’s is hesitant.

 

I liked Ally, she was feisty but then sometimes I just wanted her to shut up and stop. Liam, I felt as he gained more feelings toward Ally he become possessive and that I didn’t like but then again, I understand his feelings. His emotions and insecurities all came from his past relationship and that is an idealistic situation.

 

I found both of them to act very childish at how they handled situations but both Ally and Liam had baggage coming to their relationship and it played out in a realistic way. Not all relationships have a happy ending. Not everyone will handle things in a mature way and not everything can be fixed with love, or that ‘Special’ one.

Can’t wait to read the next installment.

SPOILER ALERT!

Review: A Sorta Fairy Tale

A Sorta Fairytale - Emily McKee

 

I will admit, in the beginning it was a little hard for me to get into the book and I think for one, it was because of the narrative voice and secondly, I didn’t connect that well with Thomas or Stella.  However once Alex came along, it seemed to be smooth sailing.

 

This book jumped from different characters POV and that I liked. To see what everyone was thinking, I hate being in the dark. Thomas and Stella were sleeping together with rules, 1. Never talk about the past or possible future 2. No sleep over 3. Find another.

 

Thomas was the one who insisted that Stella find another and guess what, she did, and that’s when all the hidden emotions began to bubble over. Stella ended up finding another who was Alex, while waiting for Thomas at a bar, and as the story unfolds they become closer. I liked how Alex approached his relationship with Stella. Obviously he would have loved to sleep with her but he put those desires aside to really get to know who Stella was. I loved that about Alex, his sweet, patient side of him. I loved the date that they had in the garden and how thoughtful he had been with setting everything up. There was a 4 month skip in this book with Stella and Alex, and I would have loved to see how their relationship blossomed within that missing time.

 

Now by this point Thomas is kicking himself in the ass and he’s very adamant on proving to Stella that he was the only man for her. I was really curious as I got closer to finish up the book, to who Stella was going to choose because she had strong emotions for both of them. Strong different emotions but Thomas to me, seemed very promising in the sense that he started to treat her like a girlfriend and doing little kind gestures that he normally wouldn’t have done before. Alex was always the sweat one hands down, and then Thomas who had been changing his game to suit Stella, oh boy what choices! If only she could have blended the two, but in the end Stella had to choose only one.

 

The ending, I didn’t see coming. For me personally, I would have preferred it not to be a secret but it was a good read.

Review: The Hook Up

— feeling love
The Hook Up (Game On Book 1) - Kristen Callihan

I really, really enjoyed this book. Okay,I’m lying. I loved this book. From the moment Anna laid eyes on Battle Baylor to chapter 5, I was officially hooked. I love Drew’s and Anna’s banter, their chemistry and I love how Drew knows that he is sexy and is wanted by many girls, lol. Drew is an eye candy who knows what he wants and he will not stop until he has Anna. Events leading up to that scene had me turning the pages, impatiently reading every word to see at what point, were they both going to give in.

 

Reading The Hook Up, was a fun read and I didn’t exactly know where Kristen was taking the story. I had a few guesses but was thrown off quite a few times. The pacing of the story was good. Kristen does a very good job at building anticipation and making the reader feel the needing heat between Anna and Baylor. You feel every emotion down to your very own core and at times it leave it breathless.

 

Anna had her insecurities, and at times I wanted to yell at her for allowing the past to disrupt the good she has with Drew Baylor. I wanted to beat her over the head and even when the inevitable happened, I mean for me reading it, I knew her insecurities were going to cause problems but I just didn’t know when and that was killing me because it was like ‘The calm before storm.’ And when the inevitable happened between Anna and Baylor, my heart still ached for her. It ached worse for Drew.

Battle Baylor, I love him, did I mention that? I want to put him my pocket and bring him out when needed, lol. Drew was written perfectly, his thoughts and feelings towards Anna were realistic and even down to his boys was believable.

 

Like a glass of whiskey, which gets smoother and simply better with age, its the same thing with The Hook up(Game on). The characters get more and more interesting, the setting and plot thickens, and its the kind of book that flushes you with many emotions. One minute your eagerly flipping through the pages as Anna and Drew get all hot and sexy. Next your heart is breaking and then a few pages later, you’re just sitting there as a warmness engulfs your insides and leaving you in a state of ‘aw, that’s cute’.

 

I’m very interested in Gray Grayson’s story.

Review: Good Pussy Bad Pussy

Good Pussy Bad Pussy: Rachel's Tale - A. Aimee

So, I got this book from the author to review and I was intrigued. Like many others reading this book, I couldn’t identify with the main character(Rachel) at all, lol. I found her kind of childish and really annoying, I couldn’t understand her reasoning behind leaving behind her child to do what she does in the book. I have two kids of my own and would never fathom leaving them for weeks to explore my sexual side.

 

Despite my disconnection with Rachel, and her multiple bad decisions I still found myself turning pages, curious to see how everything will end for her. I mean, I had no idea what was going to happen, Rachel had gotten herself in deep in Nice and coming back to New York and with her brother-in-law and everything that happened in general, I couldn’t feel sorry for her because I felt as though she brought all her misfortune on herself.

 

Rachel was such a complex character and I’m not too sure what she was seeking, exactly, because even though I felt as though she got what she wanted and more than what she could handle, in the end it seemed to me that she lost more of herself. Which then wouldn’t that make all her trials and tribulations pointless?

 

Ultimately, she got a semi happy ending, I suppose. I mean none of her problems were solved, I mean she found her baby daddy and has a sugar daddy but all her inner problems are still unsolved. In the end, I’m happy that everything turned out good for Rachel and I don’t know how everything still managed to turn out okay but it did. I was really worried.

 

Overall it was a good read and I enjoyed it!
