This was the first Julia London book that I read, and I really enjoyed it. Although I seem to be in a minority, so my lack of familiarity with her style may have helped.
I really enjoyed the characters of Evelyn and Nathan. They were complex and well-developed, and I liked the change of pace of the story from the usual romance. Their marriage fell apart due to the a terrible loss, and I feel that the way their characters reacted to this and their estrangement was a typical, normal reaction to such a tragedy. I enjoyed the way the story brought them back together, and the slow revival of their love as they finally dealt with their tragedy. It was nice to have a dose of realism with romance.
I will definitely read more of Ms. London's books!

I have enjoyed all of Erin McCarthy's books so far. I had heard great things about the Fast Track series, but was a little hesitant because of the race car theme. That fear was needless because the series is great.
This second book in the series was wonderful. I could not put it down. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the characters of Ty and Imogen, and by how well they meshed together being of such different personalities.
I would highly recommend this series, and this book in particular.

Really wonderful historical fiction book about the history of Florida. Being a Floridian, it may appeal to me a little more than others, but I think anyone can enjoy it. An excellent account of the changes that come with each succeeding generation.

This was the first Stephanie Bond book that I read, and it was a great one to start with! The story was compelling, and it was really amazing to read how easily facts could be twisted by investigators trying to solve a crime.
Well-written, I really enjoyed this book. I have read many other of Ms. Bond's books since, and I think this was one of my favorites. Not as light-hearted as the other stories, but a good mystery.

This was my favorite book of the Madeline Bean series. I really enjoyed the characters, and the story flowed so well. I like the whole series, but this was the best (so far).

I avoided reading this book for quite awhile due to the bad reviews. I finally decided to give it a try after re-reading books 1 and 3, and I am so glad that I did!
I really enjoyed this book. The heroine was haughty and difficult at first, but there is an obvious reason for this in the story, and I feel that she redeemed herself. I never really cared for Sebastian's character in the previous books, but I enjoyed him in this story. He became human, rather than a superior, regal figure. I felt that Sebastian and Josephine were well matched, actually, and that the book was well written.

I enjoyed all 3 stories. Fun short reads, a little kooky with the moon theme, but still enjoyable. Interestingly, my least favorite story was Lucy Monroe's, and that story was the reason I chose to get this book.

Really did not like this. I loved The Vampire Lestat and Queen of the Damned, but this story just didn't work for me.

I loved it! Really liked the characters, especially Sebastian Grey. I have enjoyed all of the Julia Quinn books that I have read, and I enjoyed the other two books of this series, but this was my favorite of the three. There was some excitement to go with the humor of the story, which I found to be a nice change of pace.

I have just started reading Julia Quinn, and I really enjoy her books so far. Kate Sheffield was my favorite heroine thus far, and I really enjoyed this second book in the Bridgerton series. I find her female characters refreshing, smart and strong, and the writing is excellent, humorous and really enjoyable! I have avoided historical romance for years, and I now regret avoiding Julia Quinn by default.
I would highly recommend this book along with the first in the Bridgerton series. I have also enjoyed the Blydon books, and just started on To Catch an Heiress. 40 pages in and I am loving it!

I used to LOVE the Stepanie Plum novels, but got lost after Lean Mean Thirteen. Character relationships just seemed to stop, same stories over and over.
I decided to try Janet Evanovich again with this series, and I am happy to report that I really enjoyed this book. The Diesel/Plum books were okay, but I felt like this Diesel series had better flow. I liked the chararcters, they were zany and fun but seemed fresh. I am looking forward to the next book in this series!

This was my favorite of the mercenary series. I thought the story had a fast pace, stayed interesting, and I enjoyed the characters. I would recommend this book, although it might be best to do the whole series in order (it often is). Even if you find Ready lacking, give Willing a try.
