I would have enjoyed a story with this plot if the characters had been the least bit believable. Instead the two main characters, Syd and Steele, come across as really bad actors in a low budget action flick. And Syd especially was very poorly done. She is supposed to be top notch field agent, but didn't seem to know how to handle herself in the field at all. On top of that, some of the situations they find themselves in are just way over the top. The scene in the hotel where they are getting shot at is just one example. This was my first book by Kenyon, and is most definitely my last. I'm giving it two stars though, because the sex scenes were HOT!
I loved this book! Blair and Wyatt are so much fun together. And I thought it was great how Blair didn't let him get away with anything, calling him on his behavior at every turn. I laughed out loud so often my boyfriend wanted to read the book to see what was so funny. Great job Ms. Howard!
I loved this book from start to finish. Yes, some of the names and the religious mythology was a bit confusing at first, but it was like discovering a new world. The story pulls you in bit by bit, until you're so involved in Valen's world you become a part of it too. This is one story that I will continue to read over and over and never get tired of. A keeper for sure.
I wasn't all that impressed with this story. The plot device of Emily being forced to masquerade as Lady Emma just didn't work for me. In fact, the whole storyline didn't work for me. It just felt weak and formulaic. Not one of Ms. Jeffries better efforts.
Fascinating and complex tale that kept me glued to the pages for days. Leamer has a wonderful way of making an historical era come alive for readers today, painting an indelible picture that doesn't fade even after the last page.
I haven't read anything by Linda Howard in a long time, but I'm so glad I got reacquainted with this story. Suspenseful plot, excellent characters, great story. I'm looking forward to catching up on all the Howard books I've missed over the years.
Another installment in the Mackenzie series, this time it's Zane's and Maris' stories. Zane's story was excellent, exactly what I expected and hoped for. Unfortunately, Maris' story felt like it was just phoned in. It was too short for one thing, which made it impossible to really get to know the characters. I have no idea what Mac, the hero, even looks like or what his personality is like. Too bad.
I love Laurie McBain's work, and this book especially holds a piece of my heart. This is the first romance I ever read, and I immediately fell in love with the genre. Sabrina and Lucien's story is classic and unforgettable. Excellent book.
I really enjoyed this story, even though the heroine was a bit more rough edged than I usually like. But it worked in this story, and I found myself liking Meg regardless of any preconceived ideas. Very good story, one that I will likely keep for a while and re-read a few times before I send it on.
Well this wasn't what I expected from Julia Quinn. I found myself getting highly annoyed by Miranda and somewhat bored by the storyline. It was disappointing to say the least. I missed the sparkling repartee and wit that is so evident in her other books. This story was depressing and lacking in adventure. Ah well, even a not so good story by Julia Quinn is better than many others out there.
