Killbox (Sirantha Jax Series #4)

Killbox - Ann Aguirre *hums to herself*"This is war And it’s on tonight So get up and fight Get up and fight You had all your life To run and hide Now step up, now step up Let’s do this"So here comes war. Everything is dark, no planet is safe anymore, people are dying all over the place and March is hot as hell. You would think this as an awesome book. I know I did *winks* And it was (kinda) at least for some parts. See the beginning was ok but I wasn’t impressed. A bit too boring for a good Sirantha Jax book. But then I considered the fact that this might be, how do they say, the silence before the storm. And it kinda was, when I think about it. Anyways I enjoyed it a lot; there were many great moments and painful ones as well, the characters were ok most of the time (everyone wanted to be a hero – lol) and the story was actually awesome.I have some tiny details that influenced my score:1. Planet Anzu – totally one extra star for that2. Jax’s big “Godzilla” moment with the freaky alien – one extra starI was going to give it five stars but the ending ruined it. Why did she have to make things complicated again? Suicide mission? Really? Knowing March and how he feels about these things? And you say you love him Jax? Really? D’oh!And now for something I haven’t done in a long time.Are you ready?Are you sure?Extra sure?Ok?Here goes!Top 5 quotes (EEEH?)#5 “Men can be very stupid,” he says bitterly. “We cease to value what we have until it’s gone, and only then do we realize the gold we glimpsed in distant hills paled as dross compared to treasure we had in hand.” #4 “Say you love me?”His long fingers trail down my cheeks, shaping the sharp line, along the curve of my chin, and up to the swell of my lips. The warmth lingers like a phantom kiss. Tears slip from the corners of my eyes. “More than the blood in my veins. More than the heart in my body.” I laugh softly, unsteadily. “A simple ‘yes’ would have sufficed.” “Nothing is simple between us. It never has been.”#3 His answer comes in the form of a feeling so profound I have no name for it. Love dwarfs it because it’s longing, need, desire, heat, and a complex sense of belonging coiled around one frail, strong person. Me.#2 “I am with you. You are my captain, my commander, and my love. Neither war nor death will change it.”#1 A relationship shouldn’t impose limits—and if it does, then it’s wrong. A lover should help you exceed your potential, not clip your wings.P.S. What’s March’s first name?P.P.S. I shouldn’t write reviews while having a fever. I tend to be extra bitchy.
