If You Deceive (MacCarrick Brothers, #3)

If You Deceive (MacCarrick Brothers, #3)If You Deceive by Kresley Cole
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

If You Deceive is about how Ethan MacCarrick's life changes for better in pursuing Madeleine.

Working in a Network where killing spying and extortion was his job, the MacCarrick brothers were doomed of never taking a wife out of fear of them dying, or claiming their inheritance with having no future, all because of a family curse.

Ethan's life wasn't any different from his brother's except that he kept his past strictly hidden from Maddy because his intentions were less than pure. Having avenged himself on the couple who'd scarred his face, he intends to use and discard Madeleine as well. Until he starts having feelings for her...

I admired Maddy for being brave and streetsmart . It took a lot of courage to survive adverse poverty.

If You Dare by Kresley Cole

If You Dare (MacCarrick Brothers, #1)If You Dare by Kresley Cole
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I think Kresley Cole can persuade me into thinking Courtland is an honourable and sexy man after all. I like it. At first he appears to be barbaric, rude and insolent; a mercenary if you will but he changes for the better after Annalia finds him on the rivershore, washed up and near dead.

If You Dare is about two people destined to be together as it was written in the Book of Fates.

Hollow City: Miss Peregrine #2

Hollow City (Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children, # 2)Hollow City by Ransom Riggs
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The peculiar children cross the English channel, and land on London Shores but are being hunted by wights. They found another time travel tunnel -a loop- but miss peregrine is in serious danger of staying in animal form forever. I'm on page 154 where they are saying goodbye to the now hospitable gypsies they met on the road......Let me just say it took a long time for the children to find Miss Wren and I was very disappointed to find the children were used in an evil plot. Damn  it ! those children basically went through hell and the only good that came out of it? Jacob found he was more powerful against the Hollows than he imagined. I don't know if I can stand another episode of their plight against those evil machinations.
