Review: Believe by Erin McCarthy

Check out my review of True (True Believers #1) Check out my review of Sweet (True Believers #2)  “My smile grew wider. So the perfect boyfriend became even more perfect. He was sketching me.” “Which was selfish and stupid, so I shoved that thought aside and focused on her, what she needed, not me, what I needed. That’s what you do when you love someone. You put them first, even when your insides were boiling like lava.”  “Phoenix slouched, the new shoes propped next to his feel, a Rolling Stones T-shirt lying on his chest.  He puckered his lips at me, asking for a kiss. He was so damn cute, how could I resist that?” I loved the previous two companion novels in this series, True and Sweet. I couldn’t resist requesting it when I saw Robin’s story on Netgalley. This novel was relatively great. Although there wasn’t an action-y plot going on, due to the novel being contemporary, it wasn’t boring in the least. This novel brought together very different people and somehow managed to make them work. “‘I don’t mind you being there. In fact, I would like that very much. In fact, I like you very much.’ It was official. I was falling in love with him. He was just so…intense, in a good way. And after the night before and that morning, it felt so natural to […]

Review: Sweet by Erin McCarthy

Check out my review of True (True Believers #1) Favorite Quote(s): “That isn’t science. Though arguably, we were following evolution and both sought out a partner we perceived was a strong candidate, who could protect us.’” “‘Holy crap!’ Horror rushed over me. I had been okay with thinking it was a weird werewolf or a monster from a video game or a comic. But the devil? The Big S? The ultimate demon of all demons? ‘How am I supposed to cuddle on your chest knowing my head is resting on Lucifer?’” Favorite Character: Riley. First Line: “I couldn’t go home for the summer.” My Musings: Sweet is the companion novel to True, and follows Rory’s friend Jessica Sweet during holiday break. See, Jessica refused to go home to her judgmental, over-the-top Christian family, and instead told them that she would be building houses in Appalachia. Instead, Jessica really stays in Cincinnati in a sublet apartment. The problem is, she has a week between leaving the dorms and getting her apartment. However, when Tyler Mann offers her a place at their house, Jessica takes up on his offer–even though she’ll have to stay with Tyler’s older brother Riley, who Jessica can’t stand. “He looked up and studied me, very serious. ‘Jessica?’ ‘Yes?’ ‘I mustache you a question.’ My lip twitched. ‘Let me mullet over.’” Sweet was a fantastic and funny novel. Jessica and […]

Review: True by Erin McCarthy

Favorite Quote(s):  “For real? This was the guy Jessica had described as so hard-core? Who worked out with weights and came from a bad part of town and had his penis pierced? He wanted to get me a clean shirt.” “‘You plan on making out with someone later?’ ‘That depends on you.’ ‘Oh, yeah?’ He raised an eyebrow. ‘Yeah. If you behave yourself.’ ‘Wow. Getting sassy, aren’t you?’ ‘I am, aren’t I?’ I asked in amazement. ‘I didn’t know I knew how to do that.’ Tyler snorted. ‘You’re cute, you know that?’” “He shook his head with a smile. ‘You’re a little punk sometimes. How come I’m the only one who sees that?’ Because no one else ever bothered to look.” “‘I don’t ever want to be with anyone but you,’ he murmured into my hair, kissing my temple. I could feel my smile in the dark. ‘Are we Facebook Official then?’ ‘We’re more than that. We’re the real deal.’ ‘True,’ I said, sliding my foot over his. ‘We are.’” Favorite Character: Rory! First Line: “Getting drunk was not in my plans for Friday night.” My Musings: So I got this novel a while ago on Netgalley, and it’s been sitting in my kindle app for a bit. I have seen great reviews of this novel, but I really wasn’t up to reading any more New Adult contemporaries the past […]
