I've had this book Redeeming Alex   by Nikki Soarde , in my TBR list for over a year.  Out of LOTS  of books in my TBR ,I just cant find something that makes me want to read . Maybe because the last couple books I've read I've really liked ,and cant find anything similar. I keep picking this up but would like to know what anyone who's read it thinks.?

I had this book on my TBR for a long time, too. I think I finally picked it up but didn't get too far because I didn't like the hero and heroine.  I don't remember much more than that, though.

The only review that I saw was written by a PBS member and she basically said forget it; don't read it.

Friends,

As a complete aside, do take the time to check out the review posted by the member.  It is worth a good chuckle.

It's in my TBR pile, too and I'll start it tonight and report here.

Think this was one of the freebies I got with that big Ellora's cave sale last year. Never could get into it and took it to the swap shop!

I can tell just from the description I'd hate it so I'm curious to hear what KG says. He runs out and acts a man-whore to soothe his wounded soul while she wraps her vagina in plastic and waits for him to get it out of his system? Gag me. Just gag me.

Ugh, how is that romance? Reading the blurb makes me hope something bad happens to that "hero".

Ok - I'm on Chapter 4 because the subject matter (serial rapist/killer) makes it unreadable at bedtime and I rarely have time to read during the day.  I found the prologue and first couple chapters to be quite melancholy as well.

So far, what strikes me most about Alec is his arrogance.  In regards to him being a slut - he's had two women so far - one's in another country and the other one being rather forward and getting naked to entice him.  Of course he obliged.

FYI, there's no indication this is an erotica book.

I'm reading other books in between chapters of this one, so this report is likely to be slow going.

Am I drawn in and dying to see what happens next?  No.  What's been accomplished so far could have been written with less scenic description and there are too many relationships of the heriones' introduced in the first few chapters.  My rating would be a C so far, but I'll continue to see if it gets better.
