Believe In Me (Believe Trilogy, #3) by Jessica Barksdale Inclan
This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Jessixa 03, Sam rated it really liked it Shelves: I wish I could better describe what I got from this book than I’m able to convey with my words.
I so loved the “world” that Jessica Inclan has come up with. I ypu attended a lecture by Deepak Chopra on how we are all energy and that message to some extent was in this book. I did find it slow in the beginning but jesica my be more due to the fact that was being distracted by being in the car with kids interupting from the back seat and no I wasn’t drivingor in front of the TV but once I beliwve I could better describe what I got from this book than I’m able to convey with my words.
I did find it slow in the beginning but that my yiu more due to the fact that was being distracted by being in the car with kids interupting from the back seat and no I wasn’t drivingor in front of the TV but once I sat down and committed myself to believ book I found that I escaped with it.
The four star rating is more because of the trouble I had in getting into the book and some of the back history I found myself skimming through as it wasn’t keeping my attention. The romance in this book was very good. I liked both the uou characters and really liked Miranda.
She was strong and had a lot of self doubt but not a “woe it is to be me” attitude. When she was down on herself you see from her history why this is so and it wasn’t overdone. I see him more as someone who is a male reflection of how Miranda was with Jack. Obessive and seeing over all faults thinking that love has to be hard, and that it has to be earned instead of just “being” which it turned out to be for Miranda and in the end for Dan.
This was a really nice read and I look forward to reading more from Inclan. Sep 12, Dana Graves rated it really liked it. So often with paranormal romances, it believve trashy but Jessica inclan has written a wonderful book.
Im looking forward to reading the rest of this trilogy.
I cant wait to see what happens with the rest of her characters. Mar 18, Katie rated it did not like it Shelves: This book just wasn’t working for me. Did not catch my interest and by page 60 the two main people are having some very uninspired sex that is over before it starts. There isn’t enough story to even care. I just could not get believee this book and I never quit no matter how bad the book is. I got this at the library but will not be reading another book by her.
Jun 21, Dametra rated it it was amazing. I absolutely loved this book, maybe because I am a sucker for fantasy. I like the world Inclan created and the witty comments from the main character.
I absolutely loved how it ended and mainly all the characters. It reminded me of a mix between Harry Potter and a romantic love story. Jun 04, Kathleen Burket rated it really liked it. It very onclan to find a new take on paranormal romance, but Inclan has managed to accomplish this in her Believe series. There have been other stories about paranormal magical families, but none with quite the same mythos as the Believe series.
I would have liked a bit more on the origins of the croyant those with magic and their early efforts to organize themselves. When did they expand to include magical peoples from Africa, Asia, etc They first organized in Francebut all in all the my It very unusual to find jessixa new take on paranormal romance, but Ihclan has managed to accomplish this in her Believe series. When did they expand to include magical peoples from Africa, Asia, etc They first organized in Francebut all in all the mythos was sound even if sketchy.
The romance between Miranda and Sariel was sweet and did make you believe in miracles. I agree that it was a bit slow in the beginning, but the plot picked up about a third of the way into the book and was well-paced after that point. I plan on continuing with the sequels to When You Believe. Overall, I would give it four stars. Nov 09, Brenda Whitner rated it really liked it.
This was a good fantasy romance. I usually don’t do too much fantasy but this was a freebie thanks to the new releases. It was well written and the charachers Sariel and Miranda were well formed. Sariel was a Croyent with magic and Miranda started out as Moyenne without magic.
Sariel finds this poem that Miranda had written when she was young about flying.
Was this truth or imagination. You have to read the book to find out.
The book kept me reading as it climaxed into the battle with Quaine This was a good fantasy romance. The book kept me reading as it climaxed into the battle with Quaine who wanted to take over the world by capturing all of the plaques. He wanted to be in control of everything and the Croyent population were trying to defeat him because nothing good could come of him being in control.
You won’t believe how many expectations I had of this book, and they all fell down so hard that they shattered to dust.
It was meant to be a lyrical novel, with more accent set on the emotional side of the characters, but what I read was utter crap. I believe that some might find this book appealing, those who like to read about one two or three feelings described over and over again, with no beginning and You won’t believe how many expectations I had of this book, and they all fell down so hard that they shattered to dust.
I believe that some might find this book appealing, those who like to read about one two or three feelings described over and over again, with no beginning and no end to that tireless tirade. I am not one of them, and after skipping half of the book, I am not inclined to read the sequel. Sep 21, Frances Madrid rated it liked it. There is romance but it is understated and is not the typical beat you over the head sex fest that I have come to expect from books from the romance genre. I always cringe when I decide to explore new titles from the romance genre for work, never knowing just what I will find as I begin to turn the pages.
This one was a pleasant diversion, an intricate fantasy world where magic ‘A grown-up’s Harry Potter’ would be the closest thing that I could compare this paranormal romance by Jessica Inclan. This one was a pleasant diversion, an intricate fantasy world where magic coexists with a 21st century Earth. Think I will continue the trilogy and see where it goes. Aug 17, Alex rated it really liked it. Slow at the begging, but got better. Good love story, sad that the second book doesnt continue with the same couple.
Mar 07, Brittany rated it it was amazing Shelves: A random pick in the bookstore on a day I was in need of a little fantastical romance – and I picked well! After this book I found myself communicating monthly with the author and receiving “Being With Him” before it was out in print.
I was absolutely flabbergasted at the sensuality of the book without being almost pornographic. Truly remarkable modernistic writing. Apr 01, Amanda Francis added it Shelves: I have given up on this book. It started off awesome and I was like “Yeah this book is gunna rock” Now Im like forcing myself to pick it up.
I am SO down about having to put down this book! Oct 07, Jen Taylor rated it it was amazing. I picked this book up on a whim after reading the back briefly. I was very glad I picked it up as I began to read it.
