What the actual ****?? Avoid!!

I don't even know where to start on this. The synopsis is wrong and doesn't even begin to cover the insanity to follow. From one dimensional characters to incredibly underdeveloped world building, to the blatant rape metaphors/ culture this was a terrible thing that shouldn't be called a book.If you're going to break down conventions of the paranormal and the new age genre them you have to BUILD SOMETHING IN IT'S PLACE! Something with a decent foundation with plausibility perchance.I won't even try to get into how the "woo-woo" is introduced to the human character with it's wow this is word but I'm going to get along with it, or how supposedly to be considered strong you have to have a snarky quip ready instead of being able to defend yourself at all. There wasn't a subtle but if this that was good, if I could give 0 stars I would. Even some of the grammar and writing style wasn't enough. There would be a person in one place that magically moves to another with no direction on how they got there. How this spawned two series let alone one is laughable.What pissed me off the most is how often the main character is blood raped. She is constantly bitten for her supposedly " special" blood and just takes it. She's forcibly "mated" to a dick from literal hell with no choice in the matter and she's stuck. There's too much emphasis on how crappy her life is and how there's nothing possible to change it expect by the end which is a total crock and just a way to further the series when it could easily have been accomplished in one book. Not only is she mated but she willingly submits get blood to him even though she doesn't trust him and can't get away from him. That is an abuser people. All the people around her are users and abusers but somehow it's okay for him because he didn't kill her when he had a chance so that makes him special. So special she falls in love and saves his life but there's series evidence of redeeming qualities anywhere and he treats her like a blood slave and controls everything she does. This is stupid. She is stupid. Not to mention only 18 but she's a hardcore whiskey drinker that will drink it no matter who gives it to her or where. One of the heights of her stupidity is towards the end the supposed good guy corners her and blood raped her while dry humping her because yay blood she doesn't say who almost killed her and still thinks he's a good guy because he's trying to save the world???!! This after always not trusting him and staying with the abusive sn of a bitch who marked her without permission??? It's insanity.This leads to the next issue. Supposedly there is an immortal code and a invisible group that works behind the curtains to make sure the world survives and free will is there. But apparently the choice only works when the immortal wants it to except for the one guy who could actually help matters. It's illogical. If free will and the immortal code were an actual thing then The MC wouldn't have scars on top of scars on her neck and arms.The fact that she just takes it is so blindingly stupid you don't care if she ever gets out. Not to mention there's no showing how her and her "mate" are supposedly good for each other. There is zero connection. The fact that the 3rd book mention "redemption" is a clue that it's going to be a while, if ever, that he ever becomes worthy of being alive. Plus what is really bothersome is that the concept of an immortal isn't explained as to what it means in this "world" and why all the blood letting is freaking necessary!!With nothing explained ever, rules "bending" to fit the authors needs, flat ugly characters that need a serious attitude adjustment, and immature phrases such as " dead-dead" being an official term for final death, this was a cluster**** and needs to be shrivel to nothingness.Avoid. Like. The. Plague. Don't fall for other reviews because they've obviously never read anything worth anything. Free was too much for this waste of space, both physical and mental.

Katie's Hellion (Rhyn Trilogy Book 1)

NO SPOILER ALERTS I have to say the beginning part of the book was very hard to read, I was very confused because of the many different characters being introduced and all of the choppiness being thrown at me as I read. Katie was driving one moment, arrested the next, and being called a wack job for neglecting her son. It continues from there. While I wanted to stop reading from there, I decided that I couldn't do that, Imam glad that I didn't because after awhile, I started enjoying the book midway, I loved the interactions between Kris and Katie and Gabe, but I loved the sizzle between Rhyn and Katie.... I love Toby, her son.. Hannah and Giovanni are such snobs... no wonder Katie is how she is...Can wait to see what happens with them;..yes, the beginning is hard to muddle through but, once you start you will not be able to put the book down !! 😉

I love Lizzy Ford books

Hard at first

This was hard at first, but when I got into the story line, I just couldn't stop reading.Now getting the rest to see what happens to Katie!

there was a ton of information being thrown at me and I was getting confused easily. It seemed like there were five million diff

(2.5 stars, rounding up the 3)Starting out, I'll be completely honest. Nothing about this book was holding my attention. I didn't find it interesting, the characters weren't relate-able, there was a ton of information being thrown at me and I was getting confused easily. It seemed like there were five million different characters introduced in the very beginning and I just couldn't keep up. I won't lie, I did not want to continue reading this book. On more than one occasion, I seriously thought about putting this book down (and not finishing a book is not something I do lightly). In an attempt to give it a chance, I decided to do something else I rarely do: peruse the reviews. So I read through them and many of them started out the same way this one is. A very, very slow beginning. But many of them claimed that it was worth sticking with, that if you could get past the first half of the book, the rest was worth it. And it was.As the book progressed, the story slowed down a little and was easier to follow along. Although characters were still being introduced, they were being thrown at you at lightening speed. As some characters were mentioned, I did, occasionally, have to take a second to think back and try to remember who the character was and how they fit into the story. There were a lot of secondary characters in Katie's Hellion.About the only character that I really enjoyed was Rhyn. I know some people didn't care for his beastliness when he first came into contact with Katie but I actually liked it. It showed a depth to his character and that he wasn't just a hunky immortal. He was truly dangerous and not someone that trust should be given to lightly. He had a decent amount of character development though he didn't insanely improve.Katie, on the other hand, I really don't think her character developed at all. Other than not being completely mental by the end of the book, she was really the exact same character she started out to be. I admire the fact that she kicked ass and didn't take s*** from anyone, but at the same time, I found her to be slightly annoying and a borderline alcoholic. I agree that the stuff that happened to her was freakin' insane but I just couldn't come to care about her character.There was a lot of action and a lot of bloodshed in Katie's Hellion and that part was fine. Given the image on the cover and the synopsis, it's kind of inferred that this is a steamy book or that there's some aspect of love in it. That's true, but at the same time, Katie and Rhyn don't even meet until half way through the book. I think the beginning was too long and drawn out. I think their love story could have been developed a little more. I understand that there are two more books in the trilogy so there's still time for the characters and the story to develop.This book wasn't terrible but I wasn't crazy about it either. I don't regret reading it but I was a little disappointed in the story. I do, however, intend to continue with the series to see where the story goes.Rating: 2.5 Stars.

Madness within!

The beginning makes no sense! But keep reading because there's a reason for her madness! Cliffhanger ending!

Sorry, but I couldn't trudge my way through this one.

First of all let me say, I am not a fan of people writing reviews for a book that was not read in its entirety. That being said I only read the first half of this book and I really never do this. This is the fourth series by Lizzy Ford I have attempted to read. All of the others, I completed and thoroughly enjoyed. This one I really struggled with. Even halfway through I still have so many questions that I don't feel like I have a good idea of what is going on. There is the Council of Seven, how do they determine who is on the council? They call them brothers, but they are not. Rhymes eluded to getting there, but no specifics. The Immortal Codes are referred to often, but nothing explaining what they are. The prison in hell is a place no immortals can go and yet Gabriel visited Rhyn there. I just need more explanation of what is going on. Also, there are more incorrect words and misspellings than usual for this author. The only reason I gave two stars instead of one is because I didn't finish it.
