    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...

    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 just finished reading Lola by Melissa Scrivner Love and it wasn't a book or an author that I was at all familiar with so I basically had no preconceived expectations for this book and honestly, I think I prefer it that way because I really get to read a book with an open mind and form my own opini...

    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 ...

    I received this as an ARC from Penguin. This is one of those stories that sticks with you. You want to make sure the characters get out of the sticky situations they are in. I kept hoping that Lola, the main character would make it through. She had to make the best of the situation she was thrown in...

    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 ...

    Lola, the debut by Melissa Scrivner Love, is not a novel that I would have picked out on my own. I am not usually drawn to books with cartels or gangs, but I am glad I took a chance on this one. It actually ended up being a pretty entertaining read. The novel follows a gang, the Crenshaw Six, which ...
