    2.5 stars rounded up to 3 because it's only half bad.Lola, by Melissa Love, reads like a television drama. If you're a fan of shows like Breaking Bad and Sons of Anarchy, you should like this book. That being said, the book is not without its problems. If you're a medical professional of any kind, t...

    3.5 starsTriggers: graphic violence, molestation, rape, drug useThe vicious brutality present in Lola makes it, at times, an uncomfortable book to read. Lola is one woman’s tale about coming out from behind the shadows of men and exerting her power in order to survive in her violent, dark, unfo...

    Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || Amazon || PinterestAll too often, compassion is taken for weakness with female heroines. It's often what causes their downfall, creating snafus that the other characters must work to resolve. Compassion is not Lola's weakness. It's a part of her character, and on...

    2.5 stars Although I was captivated by the first few chapters, my interest quickly lost its intensity as everything unfolded. The prose was decent, but I believe LOLA would have agreed with me more if it wasn't written in third person. Too much information from a distance... I wish I could have gott...

    4 "Who's the Boss?" Stars.Warning: As I read a lot of romance titles, I think it's important to note from the start that this is not a romance title--it's a general fiction/thriller title.... Proving that society's prejudices are not solely reserved for women in typical professional careers that exp...

    I received this from Goodreads Giveaways in exchange for an honest review. All my opinions are my own :)----This was something that I normally wouldn't have picked up on my own (thanks again, GR and my book-enabler friends ;-P ) but was intrigued by after Edward (actually had forgotten I'd read his ...

    Lola is the leader of the Crenshaw Six, a female living in a male dominated world. She leads from the shadow’s and is considered Garcia’s girl by all who know her. But she is so much more. Little by little she emerges as the strong leader that she has always been. Lola is ruthless and cunn...

    I've been in a weird state lately — at least, when it comes to reading. Nothing really thrills me anymore; I haven't felt moved by a new (new to me, anyway) novel or story in a while . . . at least a month or longer. As much as I read, that feels like quite a time. This isn't new. This happens ...

    I need to be honest with myself - I will not finish this book. There is nothing particularly wrong with it, it is more that I am the wrong reader perhaps. It isn't really my genre and the writing isn't quite strong enough to make up for it. This book focusses on a gang getting entangled with the mob...
