Whenever a new Maya Banks book comes out, I have to instantly rush out to the store and buy it. While Letting Go didn’t ignite omg, this is the best book ever emotions, I still really loved it.
The romance is sexy, superficially emotional and develops just as readers will expect. The plot just adds more kinks in the series plot which tries to add levels of intrigue and somehow just confuses me. Finally, even though I liked some of the secondary characters the author has just introduced too many.
Fast-paced, with intense sex scenes and an intriguing jumble of the sports and fashion worlds, this steamy novel will satisfy those who like a little heat in their love stories.
...the book reminds us how rewarding it can be to see a parent outside the context of our own needs. It's that illumination that allows Corrigan to turn what starts as a complaint about her mother into a big thank you.
The main problem is that in trying to give the book enough window-dressing to encourage sales, the authors veer from academic rigour to lightweight anecdotal evidence in a way that squanders much of their authority.
...this book didn’t work for me...you tied up the book with little to no drama, and I found that I wasn’t rooting for the couple to be together...I found myself rolling my eyes and wishing for better for both characters.
I have to give Matt Donovan this, ladies. The man won’t say shit if he’s got a mouthful, but when he does decide to speak it means something...For a man who didn’t give us much in the way of words, that’s a whole lot of perfect right there.
Written from the heart Still Life with Bread Crumbs digs deep into the female psyche, bringing hope to those who may be dealing with similar situations while telling a heartrending tale of transformation, love, and self-discovery.
Leavened with strong emotion and dark humor, and featuring superior writing as well as a thoughtfully structured plot, Cat and Bones's final adventure is appropriately splendid and satisfying.
I loved this book. It’s raw, gritty, and incredibly sexy. Joanna Wylde’s writing, characters and settings are skilfully penned, making for serious page-turners. The whole thing felt very real and very dangerous and I couldn’t stop reading.
Senior could have made this book twice as long given the minefield parents and their kids face, but what she did produce is well-considered and valuable information.
“The Guts” is a decent performance, but doesn’t give us the “access all areas” badge I had expected.
There is no pattern to the magic other than the ability for those listening to move along on their journey. The magic also takes many forms and it doesn't always seem to come from one source like her Garden Spells book. Still, like her other book, it was a journey trying to figure out if it was real or imagined magic.
A unique guide.
Mr. Gates has been a public servant for four decades under eight presidents. I think that he should have let time heal wounds before writing his book, but it was obviously an exorcism of the demons that he acquired while writing over a thousand condolence letters to the families of our fallen warriors.
Flavia retains her droll wit...The solution to a murder is typically neat, and the conclusion sets up future books nicely.
This is a brief book and, like many of the author’s recent offerings, a seemingly simple pleasure. But Doctorow cannot do anything simply, and he can’t help but write well.
The almost total absence of Newt Gingrich -- whose media-savvy, scorched-earth politics in the late '80s and early '90s created the formula that Ailes perfected -- highlights how Sherman misses the forest for the bullied trees.
I can’t recall reading a book about slavery that presented in such vivid and heartbreaking detail just what the daily life and labor felt like. But Kidd’s fluid and often beautiful language glides and soars and pulls up Sarah and Hetty with it.
All in all there were some great parts, and not so great parts of this book. Finally getting to see Dimitri and Skyler get their happily ever after was a treat, but I wanted more. I was left feeling like I had missed out on so much from them, and wished we could have seen more of their actual falling in love.
