After several years of reading romance books as well as having a blog, I’ve decided to bring reviews of the romance books I read to the blog. For this, I have decided to do short reviews on a few of the recent books I’ve read in one post. Mind If I Slytherin? will be the place for any reviews on anything from rom-coms to steamy novels.
Synopsis: All I wanted was a second chance.
Chase was still my every fantasy ten years after we broke up. He stepped back into my life the same night Gavin, once my closest friend, confessed his deep-rooted feelings and kissed me like I’d never been kissed.
Now I’m torn between the pro football player and the rock star, the one I always wanted and the one I was too blind to notice, my high school sweetheart and my best friend.
Is it possible to be in love with two different men at the same time?
The answer is yes, and I don’t know how to choose one without hurting the other… and myself. I need to figure out which man belongs in my future and which is better left in the past.
Will the football player grab the top spot in my heart, or will the rock star make his own interception?
Review: Interception is book one in the newest duology from Lisa Suzanne. This book does revolve in an overarching story arc that begins in A Little Like Destiny. While you definitely do not have to read the books prior to Interception, it does give you more appreciation for little things in the background story that pop up here and there. With that in mind, I read Interception and Intermission without reading anything other than the initial trilogy (A Little Like Destiny). This story revolves around a love triangle with two very prominent men in this world, a star football player and a rockstar. While I don’t normally enjoy reading love triangles, I’ve come to learn that I absolutely love the ones that Lisa Suzanne writes. I definitely had my favorite from the very beginning. My only issue with this story is how indecisive that main character is. This one gets a 4/5 stars from me!
Synopsis: I’m in love with two men.
I’m torn and need to choose which man from my past I want as a permanent part of my future. My heart leads me one way as my brain pushes me toward the other.
I want them both, but each of them holds a secret that will change everything. Can I overcome the betrayal with a simple intermission, or am I better off alone?
Review: Intermission is the second book in the Love Triangle Duet that begins with Interception. This story picks up after the end of the first book. I found myself frustrated that the main character is still undecided about things, but this was definitely an ending I have come to expect from Lisa Suzanne. At the time of finishing this book, I had only read the A Little Like Destiny trilogy. After reading more from her though, I feel like that’s a safe statement to say. This was one of the shortest stories I have read from her. Intermission comes in at under 200 pages. This did make it feel a tiny bit rushed to me, but I overall really enjoyed it. This one gets a 4/5 stars from me as well!
Synopsis: As the bad boy drummer for the multi-platinum band Vail, Ethan Fuller thinks he’s invincible. He acts on impulse and has committed to the stereotypes of the rock star life with no regard for consequences. The one girl who had the power to tame him is just a distant memory.
Now that she has landed the opening gig on Vail’s next tour, Maci Dane is on the path to everything she always wanted. Fame, success, and money are trivial compared to her real objective: to break the heart of the one who broke hers.
When they meet face to face for the first time in nearly two decades, Ethan is reminded of the one who got away while Maci works tirelessly to hide her past. As she attempts to even the score, feelings from the past are rekindled. Will she give into love or use her power to break him?
Review: The Power to Break is the start of The Unbreakable Thread duology. This duology takes place after the conclusion of the A Little Like Destiny trilogy and focuses on the drummer of VAIL, Ethan Fuller. Like Interception and Intermission, this takes place in an over arching story arc, but can definitely be read without having read A Little Like Destiny. I really love that this one centers around a tour as well as two musicians. This is one where the prologue immediately sucked me in. I read and knew I had to read it in one sitting. This is a very emotionally charged story that definitely had me on the edge of my seat at times. This one definitely ends on a cliffhanger so I would have the sequel on hand to read immediately. I think I would give this one a 3.5 to 3.75 if that was possible on sites like Goodreads, but rounded up to a 4 star rating.
Synopsis: One decision was all it took for Ethan Fuller’s life to be flipped upside down and for Maci Dane’s twenty-year plan to fall off the rails.
Ethan tells Maci about the invisible thread that links two people destined to be together. The road isn’t always smooth, but eventually the two people holding the thread will find their way to each other.
They found their way together, yet they keep finding themselves apart. Mistake after mistake, lie after lie, grudge after grudge…it may be too much for two people to overcome.
Are Maci and Ethan tied by the invisible thread, or will their thread break before they can find their way to happiness?
Review: The Invisible Thread is the sequel and final book in The Unbreakable Thread duology. This one was definitely more angsty than I imagined it would be and there is a huge grudge that is being held after certain details are revealed at the end of The Power to Break. I did really enjoy seeing a different perspective of VAIL in this duology since we get to see the band and learn more about people from the minds of someone else in the band. I really loved Mark and Reese in this book and it did somewhat make me wish I could get another series based around them. It’s definitely nice to gets bits and pieces of their lives in the other books. I didn’t love this one as much as I thought I would though. If I was able to, I would truthfully rate it a 3.25 to 3.5, so I ended up rating it a 3/5 stars.
This set of reviews definitely ended up being solely revolving around Lisa Suzanne. While I haven’t read everything of hers, she has definitely become someone I look forward to reading more and more from!
