Best and Worst (Or At Least Not So Great) Books of 2015

Hey, people!

Today’s post is my favorite posts to do at the end of the year, and I say that with this being the second year I get to do this… But I do always like to reflect on all the books I’ve read in a year and figure out which are my absolute favorites and which I could have done without. Seriously, I probably could have done without some of the ridiculously, outrageously outlandish books I read in 2015 but, eh, what can you do? Sometimes you have to get a few sour ones to really appreciate the sweet ones.

Goodreads Summary:

We all need a hero…let the Saints of Denver begin

Orlando Frederick knows what it is to be leveled by pain. Instead of focusing on his own, he’s made it his mission to help others: sports stars, wounded war vets, survivors of all kinds. But when Dom, a rugged, damaged, sinfully attractive cop, makes his way into Lando’s physical therapy practice, he might be the biggest challenge yet. Lando loved one stubborn man before and barely survived the fallout. He’s not sure he can do it again.

Dominic Voss is a protector. The police badge he wears is not only his job, it’s his identity, so when he’s sidelined because of an injury, the only thing he cares about is getting back on the force. He expects Lando to mend his body, he just doesn’t realize the trainer will also have him working toward a hell of a lot more. As attraction simmers and flares, Dom sees that Lando needs repair of his own…if only the man will let him close enough to mend what’s broken.

An Avon Romance.

My Review:

This is a special review for me to be writing because this novella was my first MM romance! For those who don’t know, MM just means male male romance. So, if you decide that ain’t for you, don’t read.

I, however, have been getting nothing but MM romance recommendations from my friends for months now. But I kept putting them off because I KNEW Jay was writing an MM romance and I wanted hers to be the first I ever read. And let me tell you, it was so hard to stay away from other MM books. But I was determined. Because although Jay wasn’t the first adult or new adult romance I had read, her stories were the first romance books to really speak to me. Jay herself was the first author I talked to who made me feel like I could take on the world. Her books have a wonderful way of encouraging me to take risks, to let it ride, and see where life takes me by putting myself out there. And if you have ever had the pleasure of meeting Jay, then you know exactly what I’m talking about. So I wanted Jay to be the first author I read MM from. And I was so not disappointed.

Leveled is so rich with feels and the struggles of moving on. If you have read her Marked Men series (which you should before reading Leveled), then you know exactly what our main character is battling with. But the way Jay writes it, I felt so much for the main character. And so much of what Lando was thinking, what he was fearing, they felt like my own fears.

“I didn’t always have the answer, but I knew without a question that my doubt, my hesitation, and misgivings were absolutely strong enough and powerful enough to pull us apart if I let them.”

Omg, that line gives me chills every time. But lines like that, they rang so true for me and made me so much  more immersed with this story.

Leveled is a fast-paced, quick read that had to giggling and crying by the time I reached the end. AND. It has sneak peak into BUILT, which  was lucky enough to get an ARC of as part of the blog tour. I’m so excited to read it and this was a nice little treat to tide me over till I got Built!

Thank you for this story, Jay! XO

MY RATING: 5/5

Goodreads Summary:

Welcome to the Point

There’s a difference between a bad boy and a boy who’s bad . . . meet Shane Baxter.

Sexy, dark, and dangerous, Bax isn’t just from the wrong side of the tracks, he is the wrong side of the tracks. A criminal, a thug, and a brawler, he’s the master of bad choices, until one such choice landed him in prison for five years. Now Bax is out and looking for answers, and he doesn’t care what he has to do or who he has to hurt to get them. But there’s a new player in the game, and she’s much too innocent, much too soft…and standing directly in his way.

Dovie Pryce knows all about living a hard life and the tough choices that come with it. She’s always tried to be good, tried to help others, and tried not to let the darkness pull her down. But the streets are fighting back, things have gone from bad to worse, and the only person who can help her is the scariest, sexiest, most complicated ex-con The Point has ever produced.

Bax terrifies her, but it doesn’t take Dovie long to realize that some boys are just better when they’re bad.
