Review:Reign by Jessica Gadziala

My edition: Kindle Unlimited


Series: The Henchmen #1

Rating: 1.5 stars DNF @ 51%

Synopsis: Off of Goodreads

1 notorious 1%er
1 innocent trapped in an impossible situation
1 vicious crime lord
3 people who aren't who  they appear to be
=one big (bloody) mess

Reign is no stranger to the criminal underbelly and hard life, but when a 
random woman comes (literally) crashing into his life- learning things she
has no business knowing, and bringing with her the weight of the city's
biggest skin trader- the "hard life" starts to take on a whole new meaning.

Review: I really don’t know what to say with this. The way the author made the Henchmen mc, just ugh!! They didn’t talk in complete sentences. They talked like they didn’t have any education at all.

The chemistry between the two MCs sucked. There wasn’t any. The female MC had like no common sense what so ever. Plus I am tired of this magic penis syndrome that most authors are going to now days. This woman was found after 3 months of torture and abuse by men. All of the sudden she is okay and not flinching from the male MC. That doesn’t go away in a matter of a couple of days. The author still had it were the female MC was having nightmares but there is other trauma and PTSD with escaping a crime lord. After the abuse she took she shouldn’t have acted the way she did.

The story line had some plot holes. This was a big eh! Another thing that made me mad about this is that the female MC, whose name is Summer, has sex with a guy she only knows after a few days of being out of the hell hole V, crime lord, had her in. Yeah, no, shit doesn’t work like that.

When the description of Reign, Summer described his voice as gargling glass.


I don’t know about you but that just don’t sound right or sexy. I mean I can’t even think of what that even sounds like. Plus his dirty talk wasn’t turning me on at all. One time he called her his “good little slut”. Mofo call me a slut, let’s see how long you stay breathing. Another thing is he was always slamming Summer into walls. Another freaking thing that a woman who just went through trauma like she did wouldn’t take so lightly like Summer did.

This book frustrated me. I hate to start August off with a crappy book but it looks like that’s what is going to happen. I don’t want another month like July. I want to read some 4-5 star books. Let’s hope that my next book is a 4 star at least.

Monthly Recap

Monthly Best Read: July 2016

Well this was very very difficult for me. My month of July has not been great at all in the book area. I wouldn’t have had any books over the 3 stars if I hadn’t reread two Harry Potter books. I won’t have either of those on this since they are rereads. But luckily on July 27th I got to pick up one book that finally broke my sucky July meh spell.

The Coveted

I finished this in four days but I was super busy with having to go to drag races and see some family friends. When I did finally get a chance to sit down and read, I read through this fast. I could not put it down for the life of me.


I don’t have any runner ups because nothing really stuck out to me other than The Coveted. Let’s just say July wasn’t my best picks. Hopefully I don’t have this problem in August.
