DOWN & DIRTY QUICKIE REVIEW!

diehard-fangirl:

One Sentence Summary:

She’s his BFF’s fireball sister-in-law, & he’s a shy, virgin, Football player with a big ol’ crush.

Name That Trope:

  1. He Loves Her But She’s ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ About Him
  2. Bearded, Man-Bun-Having Jason Momoa hero + Outspoken Tinkerbell heroine
  3. Temporary houseguests = forced proximity
  4. Long distance relationship FEEEEEEEELINGS!
  5. Heroine with an identity crisis

What part made you fangirl squeal:

  • When our hero Dex worked his infant-magic and, among other things, wore a chest babysling to carry his nephew?!?!?! My ass went Fangirl 9000 over this baby-whisperer gender role reversal!
  • When Fiona fucking OWNED her backstabbing co-worker. I’m so here for women standing up to toxic women.
  • Literally every single time our man was putty at Fiona’s feet; HE WAS HER SEXY HAPPY-PUPPY!
  • The fact that we got a black! gay! football player! When our straight hero shared playful, flirty banter with him because Dex’s masculinity isn’t toxic, fragile, OR homophobic!? I lived.
  • How immediately after the One And Only Time hero-hottie majorly fucked up, he owns his fuck up with a genuine, real-ass apology!

Favorite Character:

FUCK YOU, ME, FOR MAKING ME PICK!

Fiona: Diminutive in size, big in personality! Voices her thirst and her thoughts whenever she feels like it! Is bold! Has Issues™ and opinions! Kicks creative ass!

Dex: Big in size, quiet in personality! Has secret lust and keeps his thoughts to himself! Is restrained! Has Feelings ™ and thirst! Is a secret photorealist painter! 

How smexy was the smex?

EXPLODES OVARIES! COMES FOR YOUR LUST! IS HOT!!!! Seriously, this book does it all.

There’s everything from 1st-kiss-turned-public-dry-hump-fun [followed by Dex shutting down Fuck Boys], to a fingerbang session [followed by Dex grinding his horniness against the counter while fixing Fiona breakfast in post-orgasmic bed], to dirty talk, to outdoor beard-on-titty action!

Also did I mention Mr Sensitive Soul Dex has two Frenum piercings?!?! A BITCH WASN’T READY!

Whose Line Is It Anyway:

”Some guys are alpha dogs, snarling and snapping. Dex is more like a silverback gorilla, quietly going about his business until something pisses him off and he gives a warning.”

*****

Dex: God, I love the way you smell.

Fiona: And how do I smell?

Dex: Like happy dreams and well-fucked woman.

*****

“Life is like some messed-up game of Boggle, it shakes us all up and we land where we fall.”

*****

Fiona: I’m just not used to waving my own flag about stuff like that.

Dex: You don’t have to wave your own flag anymore, Fi. That’s my job now. My privilege.

Got any bitching to do?

Yeah. The book ended. So rude, what the fuck?!

Visually Depict Yo Book Feels:

Famous last words:

The Game Plan is a book where neither a synopsis nor a review will do the novel justice. A lot of what sells this crackalicious story are either spoilers, or the simplicity of being in Dex and Fiona’s heads.

But! If you like cinnamon bun heroes with a dirty mouth? If you love force-of-nature heroines struggling with life goals? If you enjoy emotionally driven stories that wreck you in the best way?

Well, my awesome fellow human, then you want this book!

100% all of this! The Game Plan is one of my favs; a five star read.

City Of Fallen Angels Book Review

Author: Cassandra Clare

Rating: 4/5

This re-read is actually starting to make me sad. My 14-year-old self is yelling at me for being so critical, but I can’t help but see the general averageness of the writing style. Which sucks because the story and the world are amazing, as well as the beautiful, loveable characters.

I’m going to get the negative out of the way and talk about how pointlessly angsty the Clary/Jace romance is. I understand why it happens in terms of the plot, but I got so bored of their back-and-forth events of “Jace wants to punish himself”. I dreaded their interactions, which upsets me because just because  they’re the main characters doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy the book – apart from the fact that they’re in every chapter

BUT the other romances in this book are beautiful and exciting to explore. Not only the romances, but the friendships too. I love seeing these perfectly formed characters interacting and thinking ‘wow that was such a Jace thing to say’ or ‘that was so Magnus’, and it’s probably unhealthy how much I feel like I know these characters…

Reading this book knowing that the series was originally just going to be a trilogy definitely changed things for me. Half of me felt that this book was just unnecessary… But putting that out of my mind, I did still enjoy it – a very readable and yet still exciting instalment.
