Power Man & Iron Fist #10 by David Walker & Sanford Greene
Amidst the ridiculousness of Civil War II (yes, that’s still going on), various heroes teamed up to help people falsely imprisoned due to hackers changing their criminal records. Y'know, something actually heroic.
As a 100% certified fan of superhero team-ups, I approve. I think Walker’s superhero stuff has an interesting, different perspective to it, and I recommend it highly.
Also, seeing Misty and Colleen together is always A+++.
*WARNING: a super super super super super unpopular opinion coming up (at least according to goodreads). So, Colleen Hoover fans, please don’t murder me in my sleep, or something.*

Lily hasn’t always had it easy, but that’s never stopped her from working hard for the life she wants. She’s come a long way from the small town in Maine where she grew up - she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. So when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily’s life suddenly seems almost too good to be true.
Ryle is assertive, stubborn, and maybe even a little arrogant. He’s also sensitive, brilliant, and has a total soft spot for Lily, but Ryle’s complete aversion to relationships is disturbing.
As questions about her new relationship overwhelm her, so do thoughts of Atlas Corrigan - her first love and a link to the past she left behind. He was her kindred spirit, her protector. When Atlas suddenly reappears, everything Lily has built with Ryle is threatened. (x)
I know I’m a little bit late to the It Ends with Us -reading party, but then again, reading new books is not a competition, and I think that at least some of you, who have already read the book, might find my points interesting. So, I’m here to infuriate people, or get myself pals who, too, were infuriated by this particular fuck up of a book. So here we go:
There is nothing I hate more than misleading blurbs and genre labeling, especially when it is this bad. This book isn’t “romance” (for which 1 276 Goodreads users and Overdrive have labeled it). A book isn’t romance just because there’s people kissing and the author has previously published romance books. You can’t frame a book that is about //SPOILER// domestic violence //SPOILER ENDS// a love triangle in the blurb. You can’t label a book romance if it’s really about //SPOILER// abuse //SPOILER ENDS//, because a book labeled romance is supposed to be about romance.I know that it is supposed to be a some kind of a twist and a surprise maybe, but blurbs are not there to deceive readers.
I didn’t read the blurb from Goodreads, it at least warns about “graphic scenes” and “very sensitive subject matter”, but that could mean anything. For example, it would maybe be a good idea to reveal the subject matter in the blurb, you know, that it what it’s for… And “graphic scenes” could just mean sex, it is a new adult book after all (or at least labeled as one). The blurb of this book is a sad excuse of one and a rude thing to do to a reader. If I had known, what this book really was about, I would not have read this.
Well, about the book itself, not just how someone’s fucked up with the labeling and stuff: The first half of the book is painstakingly childish. For real. I almost DNFed this book before I was halfway done. But because I’m a petty person and I wanted to leave a bad review on Goodreads I listened it through. (Yeah, it was an audio book.) To be honest, when I was about half way done with the book, I started to listen it with the speed doubled, because I wanted to get it over with faster. Then BAM! and the latter half of the book I was just like what the hell, what the fuck, I didn’t sign up for this.
And that Ryle! Such a creeper from the start. “I met this pretty gal once and then hung a picture of her on my wall.” If I ever met a dude like this, I’d run, because scary af. (And I really thought this of him before the “twist”, because this is me at Goodreads:
February 16, 2017 – 22.0% “Ryle is super creepy. I would run. Fast.”)
Sorry not sorry, but this book sucked from the moment it said that Ryle is a neurosurgeon (come on!)
This video, this wedding, this couple- absolute perfection. Whether you know Colleen and Joshua or not, this video is one that you definitely should watch. I’m warning you now, you’re going to bawl your eyes out, but trust me when I say it’s 110% worth it.
