review 1: This book was great! Very complex and intriguing. The author sets up the magical rules of the universe and plays them out the their logical extremes, which is rarely explored in a lot of fantasy literature.The train wreck of a climax was fascinating and thrilling all at once. Echols is great at bringing different world to light - pilots, country music singers, and now, Vegas showgirls. Really a good read!
review 2: I am a bit late to the party with my review. The reason for this is I read this book a bit ago and just never took the time to sit down and write my review. I set it aside with plans to go back after I had collected my thoughts, but I just never got around to it until now. I think part of the reason for that is because I am not fond of writing review
... mores that aren't glowing; it's not easy telling an author their hard work just didn't work for you as a reader, especially when you can't pinpoint a specific reason why.The synopsis of this book snagged my attention immediately not to mention this author has some of my favorite reviewers following her. Both of these reasons had me clicking the request button immediately. I was really excited when I requested this book since I had been going through a book slump and I was looking for something different and a lot of times the paranormal realm will give me what I am looking for, however, Levitating just didn't do it for me. I can't really say what it was about this book that I didn't like; I think overall, there was a lack of connection to the characters and their journey on my part. The story line felt a little lacking as though something was missing and I think this left the characters feeling very one dimensional to me even with the elemental aspect. In addition, I was a tad bit lost during some parts. I found myself wandering in thought and stepping away from the story. I am usually a fast reader, but this one took me over a week to finish.Levitating Las Vegas is my first read from this author and unfortunately, I didn't get the chance to see why she is so well loved through her previous books. I however do have another book to read and review by Jennifer that is contemporary so I am hoping that I will get the chance to fall in love with her writing style with that one. Thank you Gallery and NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review an ARC of Levitating Las Vegas in exchange for my honest opinion. less

don't really feel a connection with either MC. No heat and this isn't a story for me.
I had high hopes for this (I love Jennifer Echols) but this just didn't work for me.
Just couldn't get into this one. :o( DNF
