2.5 StarsFYI: this is more of a rant than a review so if you'd like to know what the story is actually about, you're not going to get any good info here.Damn. I'm not sure what was missing in this book, but I never connected with the characters. Gabe, maybe.Marley, the heroine is broken she obviously has a very dark past. She's afraid of men and the only people she lets gets close to her are her best friends Carmen and Matty. She works at a diner and takes college classes at night. So immediatel [...]
Well hello Gabriel BertozziFirst I'm going to say this exceeded my expectations. I love to read and I'm not picky about errors, if it has what I want, I'm good and I can look over them for the most part but this one had way too many and I have no clue how they got by. Would be a 5 star for me without all the errors.Anyone who chooses to read this really has to be prepared to make it through a short part of the beginning which involve acts upon an eight year old, this is how the heroine starts ou [...]
Couldn't put this one down !
This book was so good. I devoured it in one night. The H is to die for: OTT and completely insane for the h. The sex was also HOT. The only reason I didn't give it a perfect rating was bc of the slutty BF (which I HATE), a gay friend that the H mistakes as a rival for the h's affections (this has been done too many times), and an evil ex who wants the H despite his rejections (no woman does that). The h was a little annoying at times but the H more than made up for that.
I would love this author's stories if she could just have her heroes keep it in their pants after meeting the heroines or at the very least, have the heroines with someone else too. Instead with the exception of the first book in the colurs series, in the books of hers that I have read the heroes have sex with OW after meeting the heroines and/or during a separation. By contrast, the heroines are celibate, pining over the heroes. It is so chauvinistic and stereotypical and makes me want to puke [...]
If this book didn't have so many typo's it would have been soooooo much better. Errors seemed to get worse and drove me batty but loved the story!
I have been trying for a long time to find a heroine who has backbone, so far this one is showing a true strength of characterYes!!!
This book is so incredibly clichè yet for the life of me I couldn't stop reading it -- I frigging devoured this book despite its problematic Hero and Heroine. Ohwell.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.Robbed of her childhood as a pawn in her mother’s drug addiction and desperation for a fix, Marley has closed herself off from even the thought of a relationship with any man. She had a very rough childhood and was able to overcome it all and break away from that life. She’s working as much as she possibly can as a bartender to put herself through college. Everything she has, she has worked for and accomplished all on her own. Her walls crum [...]
Wow. Prince took the alpha millionaire cliché, been-done-to-death storyline and did it right. She made it her own. I devoured this book. I was intrigued from beginning to end. There were no lulls. Prince has a knack for cutting to the chase while at the same time creating glorious buildup to a what-the-hell-just-happened ending.Marley had a shit childhood. We get the idea of what happened to her through nightmares. Four or so years later she's making it on her own working as a bartender and tak [...]
This book totally took me by surprise, I had it in my library for a few days before I read it. I absolutely loved it ! I mean I stayed up all frigging night because I just had to finish it ! I am gonna be going crazy waiting for the next one ! I felt so sorry for Marley & everything that's happened to her, I really hope her & Gabriel get their HEA. Gabriel was hot as FUCK, I love, love, loved him ! Carmen was funny as shit, I loved the stuff she said to Aldo !
I wasn't able to stop myself in reading this book up to the last page in one sitting.
Wow!! 4.5 stars I really enjoyed this book. Can't wait to read the next installment!
4 Smoldering StarsReview by Jen Hagen It’s been a while since I’ve read about a rich alpha businessman used to getting whatever he wants and whatever woman he wants. This book was an easy way to find myself enjoying that genre again. If you like Christian Grey, I would find this a good comparison – this is what Christian would be like if he were in charge of a Chicago mafia. Besides having a hot alpha man, it also has a feisty female who is used to having to defend herself and she is not g [...]
4-4.5 HOT STARS!!!There are a few things I know off the bat when I’m going to start a Jessica Prince book. One of those things is that I know there will be that hilarious BFF that I will simply adore, who will have me laughing out laud due to her no filter mouth.The second thing that I know is that no matter how dark a topic is there will be a balance with humour and light sweet as sexy moments.The third thing is that I know Jessica will have a great effortless way with her words that will car [...]
I want to scream from the roof tops that you MUST ONE CLICK Destructive. I wasn't sure what to expect when I read this book. I have read Jessica Prince's other novels which were lighthearted and heartwarming. Destructive is sooo not that type of novel. Jessica really stepped out of her box when she wrote this masterpiece. Gabriel is a total ALPHA male and he has this sex appeal to him that will have you begging for more. When he says jump, I want to jump. There is just something totally hot abou [...]
Visit The Book Enthusiast for more reviews by the girls!“Men cause nothing but pain” – MarlenaDestructive has an INTENSE storyline from start to finish with characters that are NOT PERFECT! I think those two aspects of this story alone make Destructive a MUST READ for any New Adult or Erotic Romance reader!Marlena is a very likable, kind and smart woman but she is emotionally ruined when it comes to romantic relationships. Her issues with men stem from her horrible upbringing with her moth [...]
Oh my goodness. I was completely blown away after reading this book. I think I'm still trying to pick my jaw up off the floor. I wasn't expecting what I read. I have never read anything by Jessica Prince before and now she will be an author that I will add to my reading list. I was completely hooked from the very beginning to the very end. After having to grow up at such a young age Marley is trying to make it own her own. Her father was some random guy that she didn't know and well her mother w [...]
“Holy Mob Wars.”Marley is a woman that has a backbone and spine of steel. I mean she really has to be from all the crap life has dealt her. She had a crappy childhood with a crack head mom who never showed or taught Marley love. I swear her Mom needed a bitch slapping!! Somehow through all this Marley manages to grow up get out and start a life. She bartends and puts herself through night college. She even develops two extremely amazing friends Carmen and Matt. She is this little spitfire wh [...]
I adored this book on so many levels I don`t know where to start. I'm a fan of this authors series 'Picking up the Pieces' ~ one of the reasons being the banter and relationships between the characters, both main and secondary ~ and she has done that once again, incredibly well, in Destructive.Carmen in particular made me smile and laugh, no matter where I was, especially when she meets the tall, well built Aldo ! "So is the Italian stereotype true? Are you hung like a horse?" ~ Carmen "The dude [...]
For full review of series: bambi-unbridled/2 Marley is the classic tortured heroine - her childhood was stolen from her and she is running from her past. While I did not relate to her, my heart bled for the atrocities she suffered as a child. I fell in love with Gabriel, our sexy male lead, who had a bit of a tortured past himself. The insta-love between Marley and Gabriel was not believable given her past. However, it didn't overly detract from the story. And the length of time it took them to [...]
This is the first time I have read anything by this author. The first part of the story, along with the h dreams is heartbreaking. The h endured so much when she was young. She is a fighter and is willingly giving herself a new start. When she meets the H there is no drama. They started slow and he gave her space for what she needed. You tell by the build of the chapters what might happen but because of the way the author builds it up you don't only think about that. I loved the H. The banter th [...]
This was book was a first for me from this author and I am thoroughly impressed. I really enjoyed the story Marley and Gaberial. Marley had been put thru the 'ringer' when she was but a child and thru her teenage years, so much that she can not trust a man. She buried herself into making herself not be that person anymore. Gaberial came in and started tearing down those walls brick by brick. This is one of those books that you just can't put down. There's a twist that just puts a knife in your c [...]
DESTRUCTIVE by Jessica PrinceDestructive is about, Marley, a girl who has had the most horrifying experiences by men. After barely escaping her tragic past she has lived her life believing that men can only cause pain until she meets Gabriel.At first I had to put this book down several times because for some reason I just could not get into it. Thinking that maybe it was because I was still mentally stuck in a previous book; I eventually came back to itl and I'm so glad I did! Destructive turned [...]
2.5 starsI do like the story. It's the writing style that I'm not very fond of. It's written in Dual 1st Person, which I like, but the way it was written is just kind of so-so. The moment I've started reading the novel, I knew that I'd end up skipping a lot, and I did. I usually just read the conversations. The love scenes didn't have any effect, it wasn't hot, so I'm pretty sure it's the writing style that I'm not a fan of.
Loved it! This book had me hooked from the beginning. And GabrielDayum! That is one hot alpha male, he's added to the list. Marley was his perfect match! It was nice to see her stand her ground with him every now and then the girl definitely has a backbone. Their banter in the beginning was entertaining. I enjoyed the side characters a lot. Great cliffhanger can't wait to see what Gabe does next.
This story is one I could not put down. I was fighting sleep and a much needed brb, but those necessities no longer mattered. I had to finish it! Immediately, I felt for Marley and fell in love with Gabe. I could feel the build-up and knew it was going to be bad. I can't wait to read the next book. I need more, LOTS MORE!
Omg! I loved this book! I can't wait till the second comes out! What a cliff hangerI really hate those but I am so in love with these characters that it is well worth the wait.
I want moarrrcan't wait to read the next bookand pleaase(I want)a HEA storyafter bad things happen in their past,I want to see happiness in Marley and Gabriel face :)
Captivating story! Sexy with a hint of mystery. I completely loved it. I can't wait to read Addictive now!!
