Thoughts by Leisha: Five Stars!

I LOVED this book. I can honestly say that this has become one of my favorite books of all time. ‘You’ centers around Joe Goldberg who works at a bookstore in NYC, which is where he meets Guinevere Beck or just Beck as her friends call her. Beck is an aspiring writer and lives and breathes social media. I don’t want to say too much more and spoil anything about this book – it’s just THAT good. One of the things I really enjoy about this book is that it’s told from Joe’s POV, which makes it deliciously creepy. You feel like you’re right next to him, watching and listening to everything going on and everything’s he’s doing.

There is another book after this one titled ‘Hidden Bodies’ but I HIGHLY recommend reading ‘You’ first. I also own the Audible version. As a matter of fact, I joined Audible just to get this book! It’s most definitely a must-read!

More about You:

“When a beautiful, aspiring writer strides into the East Village bookstore where Joe Goldberg works, he does what anyone would do: he Googles the name on her credit card.

There is only one Guinevere Beck in New York City. She has a public Facebook account and Tweets incessantly, telling Joe everything he needs to know: she is simply Beck to her friends, she went to Brown University, she lives on Bank Street, and she’ll be at a bar in Brooklyn tonight—the perfect place for a “chance” meeting.

As Joe invisibly and obsessively takes control of Beck’s life, he orchestrates a series of events to ensure Beck finds herself in his waiting arms. Moving from stalker to boyfriend, Joe transforms himself into Beck’s perfect man, all while quietly removing the obstacles that stand in their way—even if it means murder.”


Thoughts about Blood Kiss (book 1 in Black Dagger Legacy Series)

Thoughts by Leisha: Five Stars!

Blood Kiss is the first book in a new spin off series, Black Dagger Legacy, by JR Ward.

Blood Kiss reminded me of how the Black Dagger Brotherhood books started out. (Not that I’m complaining of how they are now! I wait, rather impatiently for each new book!) You get an HEA and the glimpses into the Brothers lives are wonderful! Just enough of them to get me over the hump until the next book is released!

Since Black Dagger Legacy is a spin off to JR Ward’s popular Black Dagger Brotherhood series, it is highly recommended you read the Black Dagger Brotherhood series before you start the Legacy series.  And then begin this series after you read, The Shadows.

About Blood Kiss:

“Paradise, blooded daughter of the king’s First Advisor, is ready to break free from the restrictive life of an aristocratic female. Her strategy? Join the Black Dagger Brotherhood’s training center program and learn to fight for herself, think for herself…be herself. It’s a good plan, until everything goes wrong. The schooling is unfathomably difficult, the other recruits feel more like enemies than allies, and it’s very clear that the Brother in charge, Butch O’Neal, a.k.a. theDhestroyer, is having serious problems in his own life.
And that’s before she falls in love with a fellow classmate. Craeg, a common civilian, is nothing her father would ever want for her, but everything she could ask for in a male. As an act of violence threatens to tear apart the entire program, and the erotic pull between them grows irresistible, Paradise is tested in ways she never anticipated–and left wondering whether she’s strong enough to claim her own power…on the field, and off.”
