Weekly Wrap Up!

This week, I read a lot of books, but only finished two.

3/5 stars
This was given to me (via Netgalley) in exchange for an honest review.

It talks about a woman who got her heart broken by her ex-fiancĂ©e and best friend. Since then, she swore she won't ever date a CEO ever again... Not until she laid her eyes on Jake Royale who introduced himself as Macon. It was hard to get into it, but once I've reach the half of the book, it started to get a little bit more interesting. It's very easy to read because it's short and fast-paced. Although, I didn't connect to any of the characters in this book. I love that it's fast-paced, but the romance was happening way too fast in a very unrealistic way. 
Overall, this was a nice read. 
3/5 stars
So, after reading the first book which is called "Collide", I really wanted to pick up this book because the first one ended in a cliffhanger. I have to be honest though, I'm so disappointed with how Emily and Gavin's story continued. It became so cheesy and uncomfortable to read. Their dialogues were so unrealistic. I mean, I get it, a lot of new adult books have that sort of sweet, perverted, romantic dialogues, but in this book there were so many and I think there was a part where it lasted about two pages. I had to stop reading several times and breathe. Despite all of those negative facts, I still enjoyed many scenes in the book, especially the ending and that's why I gave it a 3/5 stars. I was just expecting a way better sequel considering how great the first book was. 

This week, I also read The Edge Of Never by J.A Redmerski, Grey by E.L. James, City Of Bones by Cassandra Clare  and The Conspiracy Of Us by Maggie Hall, but didn't finish any of them.
