TheseWeirdDreams book corner

I'm a 21 year old student and avid reader. I've always loved books, when I was a kid it was Enid Blyton and then when I was older I started reading romance, specially historical romance, thanks to Johanna Lindsey and her novels that kept me awake all night. To this day historical romance is my favorite genre, but I adore Paranormal Romance too. I like contemporary romance too, I love well done graphic novels and I read Erotica on occasion. I'm rather critique with books, I believe we're in times of abundance, and that's a great thing, but it doesn't always mean we have a lot of quality. So I spend a lot of time trying to find that new special gem. I think I can always give a book a try but I can't always like it. I like to share what I have to say about books with others. I read in English and Spanish (which is my native language) and I love to find new books to add to my long list of reads.

The Darkest Passion - Gena Showalter I can't really give 4 stars to this one. It doesn't quite reach the 3.5 I sometimes use to reach the 4 stars... Which is sad, because overall it's not a bad book. It was ok, good. But I have several issues with it.

Have you ever read a story where the heroine is just "too" good? But yet something is not quite what it seems. This is my issue with Olivia. She's an (fallen)angel yes, yet I think the goodness is a bit exaggerated. I can't with her, her automatic fixation with Aeron. Can we really blame Legion so much for wanting Aeron the way she does, obsessed with him? Olivia worries me a bit more. She's an angel, maybe I shouldn't analyze her like if she were a woman but all I can see from her is AERON AERON and it's a bit tiring. The other heroines at least weren't worried only about the men. I don't know...

And about Legion, I understand the way everything happened for the story to develop the way it did, still I think the Legion in this book was different from the one presented previously. To make her an antagonist like that, it was painful. Olivia says she's as old as Aeron at one point, but I think it's obvious she's not like a normal person. She was all that time in hell until she found Aeron, so what can she know about anything besides the instincts she has? It's understandable that she wants Aeron since he's the one that cared for her and took her to his house with him, she didn't know kindness before that.
I don't exactly take her side, I see the things she did were wrong, but it was horrible to see things "ending" (in between quotation marks because she was brought back from hell, and with all that happened, maybe there's something more there, possibilities, who knows) that bad for her, even if she is a demon I don't think she's malicious. I hope there's hope for her... Get it? Hope for her? *laughs*

The couples keep repeating themselves, same issue I've been mentioning with the previous books. I was wishing for this book to be more special, to give me that spark but it didn't happen. And it disappointed me because this was one of the books I wanted to read the most in the saga. Another one is Paris's, but I think I better not be so hopeful about it.
