Falling Deep with You is a paranormal take on Alice in Wonderland and ya’ll know how I am with it comes to Wonderland. I love retellings of this story in particular…if done right. Let’s get into this review.

Alcide aka the Mad Hatter falls for the Red Queen aka Queenie Hearts but is tricked by her treachery. In anger and to get his revenge, he traps himself and her in Wonderland. Every year, he holds contender games to find his true love in order to break the one hundred and eighty-three year old curse that binds him and Queenie in a crazy world of wonder. 


What I Liked:
The meat and bones of this story was an excellent idea. 
      The characters were engaging and at times interesting. I enjoyed their interactions with each other as there were some truly hilarious moments in FDWY.

What I Disliked:
      Some of the plot points didn’t necessarily make sense which lead to much disconnection throughout the read.
      The sex scenes weren’t interesting. At times, they read very amateurish.

Now, I do think Wynta Tyme could have had a top rated story here because the premise of her retelling is pretty cool. In general, FDWY read as rushed through. Also, by the time I got to the end...what was going on with Alida aka Alice was pretty predictable. Quite honestly, I feel like this is another story that would have benefited better if it was longer in length. It definitely would have paved way for growth of the story itself and its characters. 
Also, another thing was the trauma plot points in FDWY. Alida had a tough childhood and an even tougher adulthood. I feel like if you’re going to add traumas especially revolving around a person’s mental health, it needs to be strategically placed throughout your story. IMO… this all could have worked without Alida’s trauma’s being fully described. It felt unnecessary to read at times.

All and all, I liked Falling Deep With You. It definitely would have worked out better if not for the ridiculously eye-rolling over the top moments.  Three stars.

Again, another story that could have been a hit but…. over the top ridiculous plot moments and character conversations throughout the book were disappointing to say the least. 

Wynta Tyme gives us a different version of vampires in A Love Bound by the Sun. Lennon Mager is a sun vampire and his love interest is Echo Bry who is a descendant of an ol regular blood drinking one. Lennon and his band of vamps were created by a sun god to protect humans against the ol regular degular vampires. Lennon must protect Echo from her rogue father who wants her blood for himself.

This is also another story that would have benefited if it was longer in length. Like, I get the appeal of novellas and I love them given if they are done correctly. But my goodness, some stories just need to be full length…they do and IMO, ALBBTS needed to be such. This story suffered with rushed through unexplained plots and terrible intimate moments which were cringe worthy at best. Listen, I can do with OR without intimate moments in romances, I’m at that point in the game. But what I don’t want to do is be reading through sex scenes with a frown on my face.

I can’t in good conscious rate ALBBTS no more than two stars. The rocket took off  well but kinda spurted out of the sky by the end. 

*****************

I won’t write off this author, I mean she has several works under her belt already and from what I’ve read so far, I think the ideas she has for stories are truly good and I'll eventually read more of works down the line. But…the stories themselves weren’t connecting and IMO a range of things are at play as to why. One, length. Given the stories Ms. Tyme wants to tell, I feel like they should be full length stories or at least these two should have been. There are just certain tales that need time to develop as far as world and character building goes. Two, kinda ties into character building or development. While there are interactions during both books that I cackled like a fool and enjoyed immensely, I will say that these characters did read as juvenile. These two things just lead to rushed stories. 

As always, I say that what doesn’t work for me will work for another reader. If these type of stories may be something you are interested in, give them a go.
