Dream subject but lacking a tiny bit of depth

Treble Maker (Perfect Harmony, #1)Treble Maker by Annabeth Albert

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Holds hand up and admits to being a Gleek and a huge fan of a capella so this was mostly a dream read for me.

It’s not a full five stars though because it just didn’t have the full depth I’ve come to expect from Annabeth Albert and at times the characters acted younger than they were supposed to be.

Still, it’s probably one of the dirtiest and sexiest outside of her Off Base series and I liked the contrast between Cody’s slightly older and more cynical character and Lucas’ religiously naive and idealistic one.

The struggles between Lucas’ wants and his fears was well done and I was glad this didn’t have an unrealistic outcome of them winning the contest against the odds.

Stunning cover too.

Didn’t work as well as book one for me

The Sweetest Star (Under the Stars Book 2)The Sweetest Star by Raleigh Ruebins

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I’m not sure just what it was but something was off with this one and it didn’t have the same sweetness to it as the first in the series.

But that’s not to say this one was bad, it wasn’t, but it took a while to warm up to both Eric and Dash, especially Dash, who was a bit of an arse for a lot of the time.

There was also a bit of telling but no real depth given to Eric’s supposed past as a bit of a player and the whole throwing a party bit just didn’t work at all.

Still, it’s sexy and hot like book one, there’s a fair bit of humour too and it has a cheesy sweet epilogue and great cover.
