A Short Book Review: Part #2

Play with Me by Piper Shelly

Goodreads Blurb:  A short, sweet novella.

Ryan Hunter's parties are legend. And tonight she's going to be there.

Liza Matthews anticipates the return of her best friend and only love since kindergarten from soccer camp. But when Tony finally shows up, his mind is more focused on another girl. And worse, she's a soccer player. Fighting for the attention Liza craves, she's just a hairbreadth away from making a very stupid decision. But when extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures, she's prepared to play ball to get her man.

The tryouts are hell, the first match ends bloody, and the morning after the selection party she wakes up in the worst place possible—in the arms of the captain of the soccer team. The hottest guy in school. Ryan Hunter.

My Review:             

Oh my gosh! This book totally took me by surprise! It's one of those books you think looks alright, but when you start reading it...BAM! It totally blows your mind! And you end up reading it from front to back in a matter of hours. ;-) And by the time you turn the last page, your thinking "Noo!, This can't end!" Well...that's pretty much my reaction ;) and then some.

This book was so cute, sweet, funny and romantic that it  made me wish that Ryan Hunter was mine! The storyline was amazing, unpredictable and definitely took me by surprise 0_O. The chemistry between Ryan & Liza was undeniable and oh so sweet!
 It's a MUST READ!!!
 So start flicking those pages because I can guarante that you won't regret it! :D

Of Poseidon by Anna Banks

Goodreads Blurb:  Galen is the prince of the Syrena, sent to land to find a girl he's heard can communicate with fish. Emma is on vacation at the beach. When she runs into Galen — literally, ouch! — both teens sense a connection. But it will take several encounters, including a deadly one with a shark, for Galen to be convinced of Emma's gifts. Now, if he can only convince Emma that she holds the key to his kingdom . . . 

Told from both Emma and Galen's points of view, here is a fish-out-of-water story that sparkles with intrigue, humor, and waves of romance.

My Review:             

[ •_• ] 4.5 Stars 

Ok, wow. Another book I totally wasn't expecting. I got hooked right from the very first chapter as Emma smacks into Galen's bare chest, face first! and pretty much laughed out loud at the funniest comments throughout the novel. 

This was a great read! The writing was really great and very emotional at some parts, like the parts about Chloe even though we didn't really know her that well, we could still get a feel of how Emma felt about her best friends death. I also love the innocence of Galen, Rayna & Toraf as they learn how to act and what to say like the 'humans' do. I pretty much LOL'd at those parts, they have got to be the funniest parts throughout the novel!! 

This book was funny, alluring, amazing and really gave you a great insight into the world of the Syrena. I would recommend this! :) 

And with that cliffhanger, Anna Banks left us in. I kept turning the page to see if the next part magically appeared, which sadly it didn't. :( But I am definitely dying to read the sequel Of Triton! Which comes out in May! Which is fortunately 2 months away & not a year! Which means more Galen! ;)
