    California Schemin'

    I don't really know what genre I would put this in... maybe action comedy?... It was a good story, had some original ideas. I was definitely a fan of all the different action scenes Bree seemed to find herself in.
    One thing that bugged me was the writing. It wasn't written very well and was very choppy. I found myself not caring about all of the random tangents she would go off on and would eventually skim most of those random parts. It is an easy read though.
    I disliked Beau so I was glad they broke up but their break-up was a bit ridiculous and rushed. Throughout the book I wanted Bree and Hammie to get together.
    My biggest pet peeve about this book was how Hammie, Moose, and Madison are supposed to be these professional, heavily decorated, "federal agents" and couldn't even keep a regular girl like Bree captive throughout the entire book! It blew my mind how easily she was able to escape every time. While on one hand that definitely added to the excitement and action, it just was not very realistic.
    Even though I had a lot of issues with this book, it was an easy quick read and I'm definitely interested in reading more of what Bree can get herself into. I will probably read the next in the series and I'm crossing my fingers that Bree and Hammie get together!

    Not sure

    I am honestly not sure what to say about this book. It is definitely not my favorite, but i have also read worse. The writing was choppy in places and overly descriptive in others. I had serious issues getting into it for the first third of the book and staying into it for the final third. The plot seemed to speed up from nothing to major stuff in the span of one lacking page, but then just became idle. The ending was anticlimatic, at best. Bree's voice never really became solidified or constant, and the relationships she had with the other characters were not well developed. Just was not my cup of tea overall

    The plot of this mystery was kind of weak. I enjoyed the location because im from the sacramento area. It grabs you from the start with a murder taking place on the first pg but the reason for the murder and the subsequent events isnt believable for me. And whats the deal with the shapeshifter? That seemed really out of place.

    The book was ok but it dragged on forever. It could have been finished with half the number of pages that the book was. Idk the book just annoyed me more than anything. Good idea for a book but not executed well.
