Still Air (Portland, ME, #4)Still Air by Freya Barker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This has been such a memorable series and I’m sorry to see it come to an end.

Whilst the stories in the series are graphic reminders of the brutalities of everyday life for some women, and children, they go some way to offer hope and a future without pain and suffering. All of the women we have met so far have an emotional tale to tell but Pam has always been there to help them to safety and to turn their lives around, but who can help Pam when the tables are turned and she is the one suffering in silence; Dino, that’s who.

Review: Devil's Love

Devil's Love Devil's Love by Kim Jones
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Sadly, this book just didn't work for me. I loved Clubwhore and Patchwhore so when I saw there was another book in the Devil's Renegade series, I jumped on it.

I think part of the reason that I didn't connect with this book was due to the fact that I haven't read Saving Dallas so I don't know Dallas' backstory or that of Maddie (assuming her story was told there). There was clearly a painful past still affecting Maddie but I just had to take that at face value in order to read on.

Both Clubwhore and Patchwhore had an overall different feel to them. They told a story of a certain type of girl within an MC and Devil's Love just didn't seem to fit alongside these books.

I couldn't find any way to warm to Maddie, or what she has been through to bring her to where she is today. I just didn't appreciate her story or her need to kill. Marty, on the other hand, was a loveable character that I could have enjoyed in a different story with a different girl, or even a different Maddie.

Some of the vernacular in the book came across as too stilted and affected my reading enjoyment. To me, it seems that too many words were missing but I just put this down to a particular dialect and talking manner but maybe I'm wrong?

Overall, this book just felt too disjointed and not to the author's usual standards. It jumped around and on occasion and generally lacked continuity to the point that I felt that perhaps I was missing pages or chapters on my kindle. It's a shame because the series so far has blown me away.

A copy of this book was provided by the author in return for an honest review.
