    One thought on “Sloth”

    1. Ella James has blown me away with her novel, Sloth. Most of this novel is cloaked in mystery that all starts off with a few lies. So even trying to give any brief recap of the story of Kellan and Cleo is just outright impossible. So let me just touch on my feelings.The heat. Holy smokes. I was a goner. Ella not only packed so much story into this book, she left you wanting more. I was surprised that steam wasn’t rising from my kindle. Both Kellan and Cleo were instantly likable characters. I j [...]

    2. 2.5 starsThese are my least favorite reviews. A friend who rec'd this and someone I read this with both really liked it, so by all means it could've just been me. I'm going to be honest, I really struggled with this one. I almost called it quits many times. Much like this review, I contemplated giving up. It had some highs and lows, and I'll see if I can break it down. Spoilers will be hidden, and they will be major. So if you are interested in reading, I am warning you about clicking on themey [...]

    3. ***4 Sparrow stars*** “I’ve resigned myself to what I know is coming. Until the girl I’m spanking gives her safe word: Sloth. And then the lie I’m living starts to unravel.”Whoever is responsible for writing the blurb did an incredible job at making it intriguing enough to one-click this book ASAP, Trust me! I never before one-clicked any book as soon as I read the blurb like I did with Sloth. Mystery is something which keeps me on the edge and drives me crazy with all the riddles and [...]

    4. 3.5 STARSThis book has a strong emotional toll on a person. This is NOT a badly-written book! It started off good and strong but unfortunately it took a bit of a dive and lost me half way through. It was difficult for me to write a review without giving away the story, but I tried and here it’s what I think about Sloth.I liked this book, but there were issues. Let me tell you what I liked first:1 – The writing style was almost perfect. The author is one of my favorites and, once again, she d [...]

    5. Sooooo, yea. This didn't work for me. I am not a fan of extremely detailed writing and extremely slow builds, and this book had just that. I feel it could have been cut down SIGNIFICANTLY without taking away from the story. I skimmed majority of this because I just couldn't take reading 2 whole pages about weed or the names of every single one of her classmates. Not to mention the repetitive and numerous times Kellan's appearance was described. We get it. He's hot. Let's move on.The many inconsi [...]

    6. **I read this via Kindle Unlimited**I actually finished this book about 3 hours ago.but I wasn't able to jump on the computer until now. When I finished, I knew it was going to be 5 starsdly, it isn't, as I've had a little while to think about it.This bookwas not at all what I was expecting. Not.One.Bit. I actually read a little of it, and then read the description again and then I decided "Yeah, I can totally get behind this". I hadn't actually planned on reading this when I did, but a GR frien [...]

    7. I can't.I just can't read this mess anymore.I don't care what happens later.I don't feel any connection to the characters, or to the story.The sex scenes are giving me the headache. They are simply awful and ridiculous.She has tighter @unt than a virgin, and he has the biggest c@ck, NOT di@k.Them as individuals, and them together, their conversations *headache*Who knows, maybe I'll finish this one day if someone pushes me enough to give it a second chance, but for nowDNF @ 55%

    8. Call me a prude or whatever but deep-throating a guy after only having two encounters is laughable. Selling drugs is not. DNF @ 12%

    9. Too many things going on. I felt I was reading 3 stories, one after the other. Not every fire started in the plot was put out. I was still left with too many questions. The Hero's and heroine's relationship was very unhealthy and codependent. The ending was predictable and manipulative. At least I'll say this, I didn't DNF it. I stuck with all 400+(?) pages until the end, only to be let down in epic fashion.

    10. This story will now be released as ONE FULL LENGTH BOOK!Excerpt #2 (view spoiler)[They say willpower is finite, and tonight, I’ve used up all of mine. Not going after Cleo and giving her the whipping that she earned. Not calling one of the girls on my list of dirty fucks.I pull up the text feature first, but I know as soon as I see it that I’m not going to text Cleo.I need to hear her voice.I punch her number in and sit at the top of the front staircase, looking down on the foyer: a dark cav [...]

    11. 3.5 StarsI really enjoyed the storyline. For a NA it was quite unique. This story took me on an emotional rollercoaster. It's definitely not what it seems. But gosh this one was emotionally frustrating read! I love the element of suspense, but I hate when it's 50% into the story I'm still struggling trying to figure out whats going on, what's happening, why is the hero acting like this, etc. It was very wordy, but it made sense when I found out that this was originally released in 3 parts. I lov [...]

    12. What a roller coaster of emotion! The unexpected is what I loved the most. You never really could figure out what was happening next, which is both frustrating and fun. This story is full of mind f**ks, betrayal, and secrets. But through it all there was never any doubt of Cleo's love for Kellan. I had to stop reading several times just to try to keep my own emotions from skyrocketing out of control. Lesson for me in this one: Never push the people you love away. Hit's a little to close to home. [...]

    13. This book OH MY GOSH! Talk about a roller coaster ride of emotions. When I tell you Kellan has secrets, you can guess all day, and until you actually read it, you'll never believe how riveting his secrets really are. I absolutely love the way this book opens with letters from R and Sloth. It's like taking a sneak peek into their lives before actually getting to know them. The letters start your mind guessing and wondering what secrets will be revealed within the story.I'm going out on a limb an [...]

    14. I've had this book on my Kindle for a while now. I've read over and over that the twist should be left a surprise so I'm going to leave it a surprise in my review. Being the spoiler whore I am, I eventually did peek at the ending (like I always do though I did hold out for about 20% lol). For me knowing a little slice of what was coming didn't ruin it but I almost always want to know. And even though I had an inkling of the twist, I really never fully grasp the whole idea until it hit me in the [...]

There are no sufficient words, but please accept my sincerest thank you. Yours, R. She writes me back. I didn’t expect that.

This is how she saves my [...]

    16. DNF @ 20%This is probably the earliest I have given up on a book in a very, very long time. But.i just couldn't continue on with the confusing mind-fuckery this book is.I was beyond intrigued when i read the sample of this book. It sounded so interesting and different. I even put down another book i was already reading, to start this one.But, once we got past the letters at the beginning.well, things went downhill for me. Quickly.I am all for a twisty ride. But, this story was just toowell, too [...]

    17. 11/02/2015 -- This was a long book. Anyone who knows me, knows me making this comment first about a book, can't be good. Why? I ABSOLUTELY LOVE a long book, when done well. This one confused the heck out of me most of the time. It took me forever to read.Things I liked about the book:1 -- Something pulled me. I'm one of those people who will give a book 30%. If I don't like it well enough by then, or see some potential, I'll DNF and rate. Like it or not, my philosophy life is way to short and t [...]

    18. 3.5 stars.I don't even know where to begin w a review.I didn't love this book, I think with this one you will either love or hate itt much in between. For most of this book it felt very juvenilewell other than the intense sex scenes which were fabulous untilwelley just got old It sort of felt like a FSOG for young college kids. The whole 'weed dealer' premise made me a bit nuts. I skimmed A LOT of this, even the sex got tedious and lost its sizzle becausewell I was just over itThere was a myster [...]

    19. NOT ENOUGH CLEO~BABY STARS **ONE OF THE BEST 2015 READS!Ella rocked my world. This was Amazing!SLOTH: A tree-dwelling animal named for his extremely slow movements"I don't wear anything around my neck except my trusty sloth necklace. Why a sloth? It's my nickname. It suits me because I'm slow-moving, and I like to sleep. Also, sloths are fucking adorable and weird. What better combination?"Wow! I am stunned stupid. I. LOVED. IT! Nothing really can be said without a giveaway(s). I will never forg [...]

    20. ***Sloth is Ella James's Best Book Yet*** Who is Kellan Walsh? Is he really the buttoned-up, play-by-the-rules frat bro he appears to be? Or is he somethingdarker? Cleo hates her strange pull to him - but giving in to Kellan feels too right to refuse. Cleo gets under Kellan's skin, too, and suddenly his simple plan falls apart as he drowns himself in ecstasy with a girl he just can't say goodbye to. Together they sizzle, combust, and keep burning - an endless, white-hot blaze. Secrets linger thi [...]

    21. Phewwww - this was such a HUGE story. Not only as in lots of words and pages LOTS of story -lots of SEXINESS - lots of feelings - lots of this:I loved every second of Cleo and Kellan's story (uhm yeah, how can I resist a hero named after my NUMBERONEBOOKBOYFRIENDKELLANKYLE)I heard some people saying that there was too much story and too much criminal stuff - pfff - not true - the criminal stuff has a good reason for existing and if it's too much story for you - you're probably just confused by [...]

    22. First things first, I know I am going to have to edit this review to get it on , but I have to say Kellan Walsh fucks like a champion. Like a thoroughbred stallion on acid. And his cock Is the most beautiful one I have ever imagined in my dreams or seen on Tumblr. The gift, I spent ages thinking what was the gift? How did this unlikely pair become penpals? And yes some of the letters I found a bit difficult to read because of the font size but I got there. The unusualness of them added to the co [...]

    23. OK, deep breath. I loved this book so much! Kellan and Cleo are still on my mind 2 days later! I completely fell in love with these characters and their love story. I completely fell in love with the absolute mess that Kellan and Cleo were in. They both had such responsibility and such passion for the things they were involved in and fighting for. As the story unraveled, I wasn't sure how things were going to resolve. But they did! Oh, man, we got answers to all the secrets and went on a very em [...]

    24. SoI kinda want the last two hours of my life back becausejust no. I will never understand how this got such high reviews. This is basically 50 Shades of Grey withslightlybetter characters in a drug selling environment. I stopped at 30% because I was getting really annoyed with everything going on and the story was just ridiculous. I must admit, the letters in the beginning had me intrigued. Cleo was spastic and all over the place in her letters, but endearing. But by the time the chapters starte [...]

    25. 4.5 Stars!I originally rated this 4 Stars, but came back. I have to give this book 5 Stars for the message it delivered. I'm still messed up. I'll be back with a review.

    26. I’d like to start this review off with a HOLY SHIT! I mean WOW! This is going to be a hard review to write because 1.) I haven’t been released from the book hangover SLOTH put me in. 2.) My emotions are everywhere, and I’m having a hard time putting it into words that make a lick of sense. 3.) This needs to be a spoiler free zone, but I just want to SHOUT OUT everything there is to know! Ok, deep breath. I can do this. Are you ready? OKAY good!Let’s start off with the author, Ms. Ella Ja [...]

    27. We’re not meant to be alone. We’re made with holes inside our souls. The only way to survive is to fill them. I think the catch is, you don’t get to choose with what.”Can I just take a deep breath here? So I finally finished Sloth last night. I can’t even begin to explain the deep reading experience I received from this novel. I have read Ella’s work before, but it was nothing quite as compelling as this.Things are not all they seem to start off with. The novel begins with letters wr [...]

    28. How am I really feeling after reading this book? Well, besides completely shocked, my emotions also range from drained to heartbroken to renewed and then to hopeful. Shocked because I didn't read reviews before picking this one up. What I thought was going to be a more lighthearted book turned out to the be the complete opposite, but not in a bad way at all. Drained because there was so much angst and uncertainty in this book that I had no idea where Ms. James was going to take us and if it was [...]

    29. 4.5 ★SON OF A GUN!!! That was more emotional than I expected!!!I practically just finished reading this, eyes barely open as it's still a bit swollen from the tears. Yes, TEARS!!! The story is long, and I'm actually glad it's long. From the very first note, I really enjoyed how the interaction unfolded. As Kellan and Cleo met, and the relationship opening up, for me, there was this surreal touch to it, making me wonder where all this intensity is coming from yet as unsure as I was, I was getti [...]
