Book Review: Riptide by H.M. Ward

Riptide (The Secret Life of Trystan Scott #3) by H.M. Ward

Pirate Princess’s Review

DESCRIPTION: ”

A random hook-up isn’t enough for Trystan, not anymore. After everything Trystan went through to tell Mari that he loves her, there is no way that he’s letting her walk away without knowing how he really feels. Every mask is stripped away making Trystan completely vulnerable. Mari’s the one girl he wants, that he knew he’d never have. But, the look on Mari’s face–the way she kissed him–makes Trystan think that confessing his feelings was worth the risk.

Shocked, Mari stands there staring at Trystan. As if it weren’t enough that Trystan is internet super star, Day Jones, but the song he wrote was about her. That was her name on the music. It was her name etched into his heart. Trystan Scott loves her.

Everything Mari wants is within reach. She just has to have enough guts to reach out and take it.”

RATING ~ 5 STAR OF COOLNESS

This book was wicked cool(No pun intended).

Mari and Trystan are back in this romance by H.M. Ward. We’ve returned to New York to see the third installment of The Secret of Trystan Scott series. The main conflict is, basically, that Mari and Trystan are having some trouble at home.

I enjoyed reading this book. It was happy! Whoo hoo! Happy book, happy book! I’m usually not into romance stories or anything, but I seem to be hooked on H.M. Ward’s series. 🙂 I enjoy Mari’s character big time and I was happy to read from her point of view!

Trystan is a cool guy that is awesome. I love his sense of humor so so so so much! But I wish he had a different best friend, because Seth the Sexbot is seriously a jerk…And annoying.

I was so NOT prepared for the ending. I have to wait for the next book! At least I don’t have to wait a year like I have to do for some books. It was a cliffhanger that’s going to keep me thinking about what’s gonna happen next until I get my hands on the next book.

Overall……I have to say this book gets………….5 STARS! TA DA! As always, H.M. Ward freaking rocks!

5 stars, books are better, book reviews, best in YA books, best YA novels

I recommend to ages 13-Adults, romance lovers, just about ALL teenagers, and H.M. Ward’s fans! 😀

Book Review: I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have To Kill You by Ally Carter

 I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have to Kill You (Gallagher Girls #1) by Ally Carter

Pirate Princess’s Review

DESCRIPTION: “Cammie Morgan is a student at the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women, a fairly typical all-girls school—that is, if every school taught advanced martial arts in PE and the latest in chemical warfare in science, and students received extra credit for breaking CIA codes in computer class. The Gallagher Academy might claim to be a school for geniuses but it’s really a school for spies.

Even though Cammie is fluent in fourteen languages and capable of killing a man in seven different ways, she has no idea what to do when she meets an ordinary boy who thinks she’s an ordinary girl. Sure, she can tap his phone, hack into his computer, or track him through town with the skill of a real “pavement artist”—but can she maneuver a relationship with someone who can never know the truth about her?

Cammie Morgan may be an elite spy-in-training, but in her sophomore year, she’s on her most dangerous mission—falling in love.”

RATING 3 STARS

Eh.

That’s what it was. Eh. This book takes place in Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women. The main conflict is romance. Romance between Cameron Morgan and Josh Abrams.

I liked the beginning. It was cool and off to a good start. I love, love, LOVE that she used parentheses for adding extra stuff the character wanted to say. It made it better for me, plus, some of the stuff in the parentheses was awesome slash funny.

Then it went downhill. As soon as Cammie saw Josh, she loved him. I’m sorry, but is that believable? Love at first sight in a book about spies? The crush/love that Cammie started feeling for Josh went way too fast.

The ending was cool and exciting, but slightly unrealistic. I liked her assignment, but the part after that…

Liz got annoying and it seemed like Bex didn’t need to be there. Mr. Solomon was annoying and I wanted to punch him a lot. Cammie, during the middle part of the book, was annoying and to me seemed slightly crazy.

I would buy the next book if it went on sale basically. I did finish this book in case you’re wondering. Amazon says this book is for 18 & up, but I read it and I’m in middle school. It was perfectly fine for me, so maybe it’s fine for your girl.

I recommend to romance/action lovers (Mostly romance lovers) and people 8/9-young teen. This book is mostly for girls so don’t have your boy read it. That might cause some awkward moments.. If you’ve read perhaps Twilight, there’s a chance you might like this.
