Polaris – Autumn Reed and Julia Clarke

This series.
This effing series.
I jumped on the Stardust bandwagon a little late in the series–around book three, I believe–and have binge read from the beginning twice so far. To say this is my favorite RH series might even be an understatement. I absolutely adore every book, even the beginning where the authors are just starting to establish the story and explain Haley and her dad’s lives. I even loved the parts of the books where I felt like my heart was being torn out of my chest because it’s so incredibly well written.

But, I digress. This review is for this book, so I’ll get to that now.
When we left Haley and her guys at the end of the previous book, there was a slight feeling of uncertainty coming from Haley regarding dating all five men. She obviously has feelings for all of them, and just like anyone would (I presume), she’s struggling with how to balance these feelings for each of the very different men. This book does a good job of picking up after that big reveal: “We want you to choose all of us.”

There are a couple of twists in this book that I didn’t see coming, and for the sake of spoilers I’m not going to say what they are, but they added a whole new layer to the story that made things even more interesting. You also see a surprisingly sweet side to Jackson that I’ve been dying to see from the beginning. The emotions he projects are perfect and it was nice to see a different side to him, rather than the calm and in control leader he usually is.

Polaris does a great job of tying up loose ends and explaining how the relationships with each man work. Even though I could continue reading this series for years to come, I’m happy with how it ended and feel like the story is complete. I even felt like the whole Ethan situation was done very well; although I’ll always have a small place in my heart for him, things ended up the way they were supposed to.

Autumn and Julia have created a beautiful coming of age series filled with love, romance, intrigue, action, and a bit of mystery. I absolutely love this story 🙂

RELEASE DAY – Blood and Secrets

now live
BLURB
I’m dangerous. Calculated. Bloodthirsty.
The perfect motherfucking trifecta of crazy.

The name’s Mateo Calvetti, and Brooklyn belongs to me.
My reach knows no bounds, and I always get what I want.
Including the little gem currently twisting my insides.
She’s been promised to me since birth.
Nothing anyone says will change that.
She will be mine, whether she wants it or not.
I’m going to own her. Consume her. Fuck, I may even keep her.
Yet, something comes to light I never expected in my wildest dreams.
Blood, secrets, and lies all fall around my feet.
Carina Ricci isn’t what she claims to be.
It appears she’s just as fucked up as me.
Come on, baby, let’s make them scream.
Let’s show them what happens when you anger a King and his Queen.

Royal Prick – J. L. Beck

29889366BLURB
Royal is a prick. 
A sexy as hell prick. 
The I need and want to screw you right now kind of prick.

The arrogant, I can do and f*ck whoever I want to type.

He’s so self-entitled that I want to punch him in the face, yet kiss him at the same time. 
I hate him but at the same time, still want him.

A darkness surrounds him. He has secerts [sic].

For instance where he sneaks off to almost every night.

He’ll break my heart and my headboard if let him.

I wanted Royal, but could I handle his darkness?



Royal Prick had a good premise. I tend to be a sucker for bad-boy-turns-better-for-the-girl-he-loves kind of stories, so I was really intrigued by Royal and Noelle’s relationship.
There were aspects of the book that I enjoyed, and there were some things I didn’t care for. The premise of the seemingly perfect little rich girl getting together with the damaged, rough and mean poor boy is a bit overdone, but I still like these kinds of stories, so I’ll keep reading them. Once Royal and Noelle finally figure out what they want their relationship to be, it’s pretty awesome to see how in love he is with her and the lengths he’ll go to protect her.
Now…while I mostly enjoyed this story, I did find myself feeling like I had to keep pushing through by the time I reached the halfway point. I’m not sure what the status of editing was when this book was published, but it needs either a proper edit, or a re-edit. I can usually look over most typos, but there were so many mistakes in this story that I found it to be distracting. There was also a bit of over explanation in some places where the amount of “wordiness” didn’t seem necessary to me.
All in all, the storyline is good and the book has some real potential, but I didn’t feel like I could fully enjoy it because of these mistakes. I could just be a little too picky and I would encourage you to decide for yourself if you are interested in reading it.
