    1. I ll be honest here when I got the ARC for Goddess Rising, I really didn t know what to think I absolutely DEVOURED the Complicated Creatures series, and those are action packed, super sexy James Bond esque novels that are, well, very sophisticated, mature and so NOT YA New Adult So when Lawless decided to publish a prequel for this series featuring Samantha Wyatt as a 19 year old ROTC cadet from Texas, I was like WHIPLASH WHAT Where s Part Three already GIMME GIMME Well color me SURPRISED Like [...]

    2. Got an ARC for an honest review I loved Goddess Rising It was nice to see Sam s relationship with Riley I understand her so much better now Her dad was interesting too WesI can see her fascination with him but I get so tired of him hurting her I like her so much better with Jack.Even at 19 Sam was a bad ass and that makes her even awesome She set a goal and was determined to see it through, even though she got derailed a couple times it was nice to see her cheering on her fellow teammates Rita [...]

    3. I wasn t sure going into this book wether I wanted to go back into Samantha s past as I had enjoyed the first two books in this series so much and I really didn t know what could be gained by reading what had happened before However I was totally blown away, once I started I couldn t stop, I even snuck some reading in at work Alexi s writing style is so addictive, her characters so well drawn that you feel you could pick them out if you saw them on the street.So many subplots all merge so seamle [...]

    4. Same great writing as Parts 1 and 2 but I felt the characters didn t really fit the NA setting They all mature than 19 20 yo college kids, a little too perfect good to be real I liked Samantha overall but was annoyed with some plot developments view spoiler she is so amazing but doesn t realize it and every guy she meets falls for her Sorry, I m not buying it hide spoiler I liked that we learned about what made Sam and Wes the people we meet in book 1 and 2 Now, I can t wait to see how things [...]

    5. Goddess Rising is a beautifully written story about Samantha Wyatt, a young, rich girl trying to make her way in the world without her father s influence, and Wesley Elliott, the sexy bad boy from across the tracks who s ticket to the big leagues is his talent for photography They both attend Texas AM and meet in a most unconventional way, but their attraction to one another is instantaneous As confident as Sam is in her abilities to excel in school and the challenges of the ROTC s Ranger Challe [...]

    6. I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review I read both of the Complicated Creatures books first and was eager to read Goddess Rising, even though it was a prequel, because I wanted to read about some really intriguing characters I was kind of surprised that some pre publication publicity referred to it as Young Adult because even though the characters are in college, it doesn t read like the typical young adult novel The main characters, Samantha and Wes, are both flawed in [...]

    7. Goddess Rising is an action romance novel from one of my new favorite writers Alexi Lawless The heroine, Sam Wyatt is a fascinating character Flawed and kick ass at the same time She is driven and good at what she does but is not good at everything.I had read three other stories about Sam and her friends family and lovers Complicated Creatures, Complicated Creatures 1.5 and Hell or High Water.I received Goddess Rising as an Advance Review Copy and although I loved the other books I didn t think [...]

    8. I am a huge fan of the Complicated Creatures books It s been several months since I read them so good I gobbled them both up in just a few days , so I had to search my memory banks for the details of the story Surprisingly, I still had details from Sam Wes history stored in my memory bank, so Goddess Rising filled in the blank spaces As with the Complicated Creatures books, I raced through Goddess Rising within just a few days I love Alexi s writing style terse, but lots of action The reader get [...]

    9. Complicated Creatures is one of my all time favorite series the books are extremely well written, with lots of snap, crackle and pop with plenty of sizzle mixed in The effort that Alexi Lawless puts into her work the research required to make the storylines work, her wonderful descriptions and beautiful way with words just pull the reader into the pages like a powerful suction.I know I wasn t the only one disappointed that the next book was to be a prequel and not the anxiously awaited part 3, b [...]

    10. I love how this is true to its time in the characters lives, age, and self exploration Having read this after Complicated Creatures 1, 1.5 and 2 it is definitely a different tone and genre but it should be I was still so entranced and pulled into the story and lives of the characters just like with the other three books that it was unhealthy for my sleep for sure This author is amazingly talented She paints a sometimes beautiful and sometimes broken picture, which is so realistic in its emotion [...]

    11. Received as an ARCNow I know how my kick ass heroine became who she is well as the complicated character of Wes s backgroundLoved it Alexi I read hundreds of books a yearry rare is it for me to want to follow a series, especially romantic stuff I started with Complicated Creatures and just had to read them all I was pleasantly surprised with Goddess Rising, uldn t wait till my day was done to get back to it and now that I have finished it I feel compelled to go back and reread Complicated Creatu [...]

    12. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.I absolutely loved this well written, well rounded story involving an amazing heroine, Sam It s Sam s coming of age story but it s of a mature new adult story Alexi Lawless really fleshes out the backstory of Sam and Wes, both as individual characters and also their love story While it s a prequel, it can easily be a stand alone story I ve read the other books in this series and I loved this book so much that it ranks at the top The book is a r [...]

Dear lord now I know why the reading order of these books is what it is Haven t even made it to the end yet, but so many things make sense now And I m glad I didn t read this as a prequel It works better to read in this order Complicated Creatures book 1Novella 1.5 from Rush not necessary but helpful He ll or High Water book 2Goddess Rising book.5Fearless book 3I highly recommend this order for the best experience of all characters.This is not as much a coming of age for Samantha as it is a comi [...]

    18. I was sent this advanced review copy by the author for an honest review.let me start by pointing out that this is a prequel to Complicated Creatures part 1 and Hell or High Water part 2 If I m completely honest, even with the title Goddess Rising , I was a little disappointed when I began to find out I d be reading a new adult coming of age book Where was the suspense, intrigue and hot love Where was the strong, sassy, independent, feisty, beautiful heroine from the first two books Although youn [...]

    23. I received a copy of this book as part of my participation on a launch team Goddess Rising is an awesome prequel to Complicated Creatures It s great to see where Samantha came from and her history with Wesley You absolutely have to pick up this book when it comes out I consider it required reading if you are planning to read Complicated Creatures or even if you have already read them.

    24. Bravo Bravo Alexi Lawless Another novel that just pulled and pulled on my heartstrings A magnificent read, I couldn t put it down I can not WAIT for Part 3

    25. I nominated this book on Kindle Scout because of the hook promising this to be a great story.I was not disappointed This story pulled me in and held me captive Samantha was real and passionate, not afraid to work hard for what she wanted Wesley was the playboy that most wholesome girls knew they needed to avoid, but were somehow drawn to him anyway I liked how Lawless weaved their story from alternating POVs There were strong supporting characters that helped round out the book s realness I enjo [...]

    26. This story is longer than most romances Even though it s instant attraction between Samantha and Wesley, love between them is something that slowly unfolds, with all the heartaches love found and lost can bring It could have been shorter and had the same impact, but I enjoyed reading all about Sam s life and how it made her the woman she became.

    27. I really liked this book The main female character is a true badass Samantha is no weak gal she is not the normal rich kid who takes life for granted She truly was grabbing it by the tail The story we well presented and enticing.
