Review

‘Trapped’ is the third instalment in the ‘Chained to You’ novella series. I really looked forward to this novella and my expectations were high. Sadly, this novella just didn’t do it for me and I am starting to gradually loose interest in the series.

One of the things that have brought down my rating of this novella was the amount of swearing. Maybe it’s just me, but I felt like the amount of cursing that appeared in the writing increased with each new novella. Sometimes I felt like the amount of swearing was directly proportional with the character’s inability to express certain emotions of to properly convey their ideas and/or thoughts. I didn’t mind the swearing/cursing/profanities most of the time, but it certain brought down the quality of the novella when the characters would start swearing every sentence because they tried to express their “manliness” and “turmoil” over actually experiencing realistic emotions.

I understand that this was an advanced reviewer’s copy, however the typos and misspellings definitely made themselves known. I disliked them mainly because the format that I received my ARC in was polished and looked final. There were also some minor grammatical errors and turns of phrasing that struck me as odd and in definite need of a look through.

I found that the way the villains and “bad guys” behaved in this series were completely unbelievable. I cannot express how laughable some of their attempts at being cruel and sadistic were. I felt absolutely NO danger from them. Just pity for their inadequacy as characters.

Yet another poor habit which one of the characters presented was Mia. She often refers to herself moaning/groaning/screaming in pleasure as her “sexual cry”. Why? I have not idea, but I found this phrasing distasteful and annoying. As well her inability to refer properly to James’s manhood by calling it “man root” and her own womanhood as “down there”. Her helplessness and naïveté is starting to grow a little bland.

Congratulations to Alexia Praks on publishing the third instalment in the ‘Chained to You’ series.

Review: When the Sun Courts the Moon – Part 1 (Kiwi Bride, #3) by Alexia Praks

When the Sun Courts the Moon (Kiwi Bride, #3)When the Sun Courts the Moon by Alexia Praks
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

ARC kindly provided by Alexia Praks in exchange for an honest review.

Review

‘When the Sun Courts the Moon – Part 1’ follows Chandra Chandler, a New Zealander who’s has moved to Australia to escape a dark and painful past, and Sam Harrington, the CEO of a hotel chain and the single dad of a seven-year old.

One of the biggest changes I’ve noticed about Alexia Praks’s writing is the vast improvement in her grammar and prose. Her earlier works, which I’ve read, seemed a lot like drafts and the grammar was significantly less substantial compared to her more later works, such as this novel. The writing flows with greater elegance and meaning which allowed for a more clearer view of the author’s style. There were only a couple of times where I’ve had to reread a sentence once or twice in order to better understand what I author was trying to convey. However, certain turns of phrasing and sentences sounded as if they needed reworking and they didn’t make sense to use in a certain context and you wouldn’t normally see them in romance novels.

There was significantly less telling rather than showing and I very much admired that.

The story was very much fairy-tale like and in that it has both advantages…and clear disadvantages. The advantages of such a story is its depth of romanticism. Sometimes the story was borderline unbelievable like many fairy-tales. It was enjoyable in most circumstances as it allowed for the most hilarious and sometimes absurdly romantic events to occur. Other times, I really disliked it as it went above and beyond believable for exactly the same reasons.

I felt like the plot could have been worked on a little more as the majority of the novel seemed more like an introduction to the events that would happen in part 2. It stretched on for a very long time and I sometimes wondered why all these events happened when the author could have written less with more UMPH to it.

I felt that the characters were vaguely superficial and could have had more depth to them. There were all these facts about them but I didn’t entirely feel that they had HISTORY or BACKGROUND. I just couldn’t entirely connect or understand any of the characters.

The novel was entirely too short. I also wondered why the author stressed the pronunciation of Chandra as JUNDRA so often. This could have been revealed in a more subtle and graceful manoeuvre.

I didn’t enjoy the many love triangles that went on as well as the multiple hints at the potential romantic couplings of all the rest of the female supporting characters. It was as if it was a “let’s-marry-everyone-off” novel. The two love-triangles were between Sam-Chan-Nina and Chan-Sam-Jeremy. Honestly, there was so much romantic potentiality in this novel that the roof could have exploded with chemistry.

Congratulations to Alexia Praks on publishing the latest instalment in the ‘Kiwi Bride’ series!

Review: Chained to You Vol. 2 – Contracted (Dark Billionaires: James, #2) by Alexia Praks

Chained to You: ContractedChained to You: Contracted by Alexia Praks
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

ARC kindly provided by Alexia Praks in exchange for an honest review.

Review

‘Chained to You: Contracted’ is the second volume in the ‘Dark Billionaires’ series and follows Mia Donovan, a twenty-two year old intent on saving her brother, and James Maxwell, a powerful billionaire with great seduction skills.
Mia and James go through a lot in this novella, and I liked how both characters have started to change and evolve from what they used to be in the past and what we saw them as. Mia has matured slightly, and she has become more confident in who she is. James, on the other hand, is starting to reveal a better side to himself.
We get to meet Andy Donovan, the elusive younger brother of Mia whom’s mistakes led to the start of the story. He wasn’t a character who surprised me, and this I found a letdown.
Once again, I loved how more confident, mature and flowing the writing was in this novella! The author has made great progress from her beginning days as a Wattpad writer and this shows itself. I loved how there were almost no awkward phrasing or sentences. A big win for the authoress!
I couldn’t spot any typos or spelling mistakes that usually pepper ARCs in ebook format. I also loved the formatting and how neat and minimalistic it was. It made the reading experience a pleasure! The grammar was good but the prose could still be worked on a little.
I found that some of the steamier scenes could have the emotional part concentrated on a lot more. I felt a bit withdrawn sometimes, another small letdown for me. The scenes were also a bit rushed and I would recommend that the author slow down the progression of action for those moments.
The story arc has continued to evolve. It has continued to keep me intrigued and looking forward to the third volume!
Congratulations to Alexia Praks on publishing the SECOND instalment in her new series, the ‘Dark Billionaires’!

Review: Chained to You Vol. 1 – Bounded (Dark Billionaires: James, #1) by Alexia Praks

Chained to You: BoundedChained to You: Bounded by Alexia Praks
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

ARC kindly provided by Alexia Praks in exchange for an honest review.

Review

‘Chained to You: Bounded’ was FANTASTIC! Ever since first discovering this new, self-published author, Alexia Praks, on Wattpad, I’ve loved her works and greatly enjoyed following her as she grew and evolved as an author. Her ideas have always been great but her writing had always let her down before, in my eyes. Here’s what I loved about this novella…
The writing. I could tell that Alexia Praks had greatly improved as a writer. The writing flowed more easily, and there were nearly no awkward phrasing or sentences which stood out. The grammar itself had improved vastly, as did the number of typos and spelling mistakes. I couldn’t find any formatting issues in my ARC and I loved it! Everything was neat and minimalistic!
The great writing allowed me to explore and connect with the emotions more deeply and easily. The magnitude of emotion – which all of the authoress’s works have a plenty – is something I greatly admired. The fact that her writing was now able to more successfully convey those emotions and bring them forth just made me a more satisfied reader.
This leads me to the story. I love how creative the authoress has been! Each of her novels were something unique and special with ‘Chained to You: Bounded’ being no exception.
I found reading from Mia’s perspective to be highly amusing! She is such an innocent creature but I loved her tenacity, loyalty and kindness. Following the story from her first person perspective was great fun!
The novel also follows James Maxwell but from third person narrative. I liked how the author transitioned smoothly between the two and the definite distinction she made between the two characters.
Fellow readers, the chemistry between these two characters is something mighty powerful so be warned and PICK IT UP!
Congratulations to Alexia Praks on publishing the FIRST volume in the new ‘Dark Billionaires’ series!

Review: First Date (Kiwi Bride, #3.5) by Alexia Praks

When the Sun Courts the Moon: First DateWhen the Sun Courts the Moon: First Date by Alexia Praks

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

ARC kindly provided by Alexia Praks in exchange for an honest review.

Review

‘When the Sun courts the Moon: First Date’ starts off really interestingly, with Chan being read a fortune by her Grandmother Lin’s best friend, Grandmother Su. Grandmother Su tells Chan about her love life and how she will meet a man who shines as brightly as the sun…and he will be her soulmate. This really made me curious as to how the novella would progress with this fortune read and hovering above the story. Now, let’s just all step back and admire the cover. Isn’t it beautiful? *sighs deeply*
What I later disapproved of was when Chan says: “It was just too toxic. Relationships were toxic. Love was toxic. And sex? Yes, that was toxic, too.” What does that mean? I believe the author could have phrased it a bit differently and still gotten the same message across, which was: Chan believes that love will only lead to sadness and hurt and that they can damage a person. I slightly disapproved of the way the author wrote it as it made both Chan seem like a prude and a character whom the readers may be forces to hate instead of love.
Chan’s story is also a very sad and tragic one: this I realised later into the novella. It really explains why Chan’s thoughts are so negative about love, relationships and sex. I felt this HUMUNGOUS rush of sympathy when I found out. If you’d like to know why, then read this novella.
Alexia Praks also did something sneaky; it should be called the secret weapon in a writers’ arsenal. Alexia Praks snuck in a child! Cue the “Awww”s! Sam Harrington’s daughter, Lily, is very cute and absolutely adorable! I can’t wait to read more about her!
The author could work on her grammar and phrasing a bit but I really like her writing style. It’s sweet and poignant – it’s what made me review for her in the first place. I saw no spelling mistakes or typos which was great for a self-published novel!
There were many times when I laughed out loud at the antics and silly acts of some of the characters. I loved the warmth that the ‘good’ ones shared and how easily it was to hate the ‘evil’ ones. This novella seemed like a fairytale…
I also loved the sistership that Chan and her younger sisters, Dara and Soriya, shared. It seemed really genuine and authentic. The way they acted around each other and the way try spoke in their teasing ways reminded me a lot of myself.
The ending was sweet and left a lingering mystery in its conclusion. I’m really looking forward to reading the full novel. This was an exciting sneak peak into ‘When the Sun courts the Moon’! Congratulations to Alexia Praks! A four star!!

Review: A Secret Proposal Part 1 (Falling For Sakura Trilogy, #2) by Alexia Praks

A Secret Proposal Part 1A Secret Proposal Part 1 by Alexia Praks

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

ARC kindly provided by Helena Newbury in exchange for an honest review.

Review

This is the second book in the Falling For Sakura series with its updated cover and retitled name. This book concentrates mainly on Sakura trying to find her biological mother whom she knows works for the design and fashion industry but does not know that her mother had changed her name, making it hard for Sakura to find her. It also concentrates on the seven brothers’ love for Sakura, especially that of Sebastian and Darcy, who spend months trying to find her. Unbeknownst to them, she is always right under their noses – or sometimes above them. In my opinion this book was better in some ways than the first one, A Secret Kiss, yet worse in others. I had the underlying feeling that this novel experienced second-book syndrome. It was better in the fact that when I first opened it, the author managed to capture my attention a lot more deeper and faster as well as more effectively, than when you compare it to the second book. The novel pace seemed to gradually deteriorate after the first few opening chapter which were filled with a fast-paced, exhilarating and anticipating chase. My love for the book started to diminish, if I am to be honest, but the novel did get better in the end where all sorts of new secrets are revealed that will make you want to cackle with joy. (I know I certainly did.) Another problem I found with the book was incorrect tense use, grammatical mistakes and way too much cheesiness and sappiness; it was kind of a repellent to me as Sebastian and Darcy more often voiced their love for Sakura than showed it. All in all, it was a very romantic read, and if you want more of happily-ever-afters and something that cries damsel-in-distress…pick it up – its just for you. Congratulations to Alexia Praks on a published book. May the readers create your fandom!

Review: A Demon’s Wrath (The Nine Kingdoms, #1) by Alexia Praks

A Demon's Wrath (The Nine Kingdoms, #1)A Demon’s Wrath by Alexia Praks

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

ARC kindly provided by Alexia Praks in exchange for an honest review.

Review

This book is Alexia Praks’ first attempt at writing a fantasy novel and I must say she made a pretty good attempt. A Demon’s wrath centres around a strong-willed and kind-hearted Cecelia – a human – who goes after the Pearl of life in the possession of powerful and enigmatic Drake – a demon. The Nine Kingdoms consist of three species; humans, angels and demons. This was a good play on Biblic allusion to the three species of creatures created by God’s hand. This sort of creation really appealed to me. The writing itself was… not the best. At times I could literally see her mistakes where she would use a wrong word tense or she would include a word that was not really needed. Alexia Parks’ writing did get better as you got further in to the book yet you could still see that amateur style to it. There were no grammatical mistakes which was good as I often find it more irritating to read with typos of all the mistakes. There was one plot hole near the end where I went: what happened there? Did she miss a chapter? But when I reached the end I experienced a need to know more after the book. So pick it up, you’ll fall in bookish-love with the novel and hopefully experience the same need to see more of the series! Congratulations to Alexia Parks’ on yet another published novel!

Review: The Earl’s Desire (The Rogue, #1) by Alexia Praks

The Earl's Desire (The Rogue, #1)The Earl’s Desire by Alexia Praks

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

ARC kindly provided by Alexia Praks in exchange for an honest review.

Review

‘The Earl’s Desire’ is the first novel in a historical regency romance series by Alexia Praks, an emerging author from Wattpad. This novel is a HEA – meaning ‘happily-ever-after’ – filled to the brim with drama, love and – you guessed it – HAPPILY EVER AFTERs.
The Earl’s Desire is about Christine, also known as ‘Chris’, who disguises herself as a boy to provide for her poor, on the run from the past family. Her grandparents are too old and her adopted brother too young. She works in a factory where she is mistreated like all other child labourers in the 1800s until a misfortune sends her master into fury and into her beating. She is saved by a man, Merrick, who pays for her release from contract and offers her a better place to live just like the previous children he has saved. Chris gladly accepts still in disguise as a boy and goes to live as a ward to Merrick – now known to be the Earl of Huntingdon. Her disguise as a boy proves to be troublesome to the earl as he becomes attracted to her and all sorts of troubles and accidents start to unfurl.
Both characters are stereotypically cliché, so if you go on to read this novel and are very determined to complete any book/series you start, be warned. I picked this book up mostly due to my strange mood requiring me to sate its ‘cliché’ hunger – and trust me, it did.
The world was wonderfully created in my opinion, as it really captured the essence of the regency time period including the hardships of the poor and the extreme wealth of the rich.
The plot itself was not altogether that bad. It was predictable, yes, but I was predictable in an unobvious way (at least that was what I thought of it).
The author’s writing itself lacked the sophistication of a fully-fledged author like we are used to. It also lacked an editor’s hand, which soon becomes obvious, and the experience of an educated author who receive a degree in university.
There were a few grammatical mistakes, though no typos or spelling errors were evident.
Congratulations to Alexia Praks on a published book!

Review: The Duke’s Revenge (The Rogue, #2) by Alexia Praks

The Duke's Revenge (The Rogue, #2)The Duke’s Revenge by Alexia Praks

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

ARC kindly provided by Alexia Praks in exchange for an honest review.

Review

‘The Duke’s Revenge’ is the second novel in ‘The Rogue’, a historical regency romance series. It is written by a debut author whose origins come from Wattpad. It is filled to the brim with drama, love and happily-ever-afters. After all, who doesn’t like a happy ending?
The Duke’s Revenge centres on Ivy, the bastard child of an earl who lives with her step-mother and half-sister. She is treated like a servant and is often physically abused by her step-mother until she decides to run away to start a better life. She is aided by a man who saves her from two highwaymen as she travels to a nearby castle with her mute uncle, where she can find shelter and food from the servants there. The duke Maximilian stumbles upon her in his bedroom after an early return from travels. His learning of Ivy’s identity as the daughter of the lady who killed his elder brother, and seeks to have his revenge by making innocent Ivy his mistress and ruining her. But all is not as it seems, and Ivy may just be the innocent woman, not the daughter of a cunning lady.
What I often love about Alexia Praks is that her character really are the MOST hilarious ones I’ve ever come across. They are very lively and easily distinguishable from each, which I liked as some authors have series where all the characters seem to blend into one and the same after reading a couple of the novels. ‘The Duke’s Revenge’ takes place in the same world as ‘The Earl’s Desire’, the first novel in the series, and the duke and earl of these two books are friends and we see a little of both of them in each other’s stories.
The plot was original yet somewhat predictable, much like the previous novel, but fun to read. It was just as cliché as the previous yet I found that romantic and I liked the easy and light undertone of it.
The grammar is slightly wonky and there were several times I would reread a sentence and think of my own way of writing it just because the way the author wrote it seemed to be strange. There were a few mistakes and word omissions in the novel but there were no typing errors, but all this a good editor can fix in the future.
Congratulations to the author on writing and publishing a book!

Review: Highland Kiss (Kiwi Bride, #2) by Alexia Praks

Highland Kiss (Kiwi Bride, #2)Highland Kiss by Alexia Praks

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

ARC kindly provided by Alexia Praks in exchange for an honest review.

Review

‘Highland Kiss’ is a new adult contemporary romance with a Scottish, alpha male hero and a sassy, virgin heroine.
It will be New Zealander Ruby Williams-Chan’s first time abroad and overseas, as well as away from her family and home, and she is going on a vacation across Europe, finally! Her first stop is Edinburgh, Scotland and she is ready to visit all its historic wonders whilst residing in Brian’s mansion. After crossing paths with him back home, the two intend to travel together to see what comes of their attraction and Brian is intent on making Ruby his girlfriend. But things don’t turn out the way she plans. Billionaire Alec Hasting’s sister, Susan, is trying to restart a broken relationship with her ex-fiancé but after finding out he is to bring a woman from overseas home, she fears that her future with the man she loves is not to happen. Unperturbed, Susan plans a kidnapping; who better to do it than her own brother. Yet after arriving at the manor where Alec has secreted away Ruby, the two grow closer and are falling in love despite the circumstances that brought them together. Yet Alec is not who he seems; he was once her dearly beloved, childhood friend, ‘Alee’. Yet due to unintentional interference from Susan and ex-fiance, Brian, misunderstandings and doubts start to arise between Ruby and Alec, threatening their budding relationship.
The setting was lovely due to its location in a large manor surrounded by expansive ground in England and added its own appeal to the novel. It created a sense of tranquillity in the otherwise turbulent events of the story which I really liked.
The characters were dynamic, full of chemistry and passion. The story itself was captivating, warm and fun.
There were a few flaws to the novel such as the off-kilter grammar, some typos and spelling mistakes. The story was also really cliché, but I personally liked that.
It was a fun continuation of the series and the second story of the group of four friends which the series will capture.
Congratulations to Alexia Praks on yet another published book!
