Overall, it’s not a bad book, but it was not what I thought I was going to get in a D/s book. I wanted more of that dominate male, pushing his submissive to the brink. Teaching her how the relationship was going to work. It was a good love story, but not what I was anticipating going in.
I want to fall in love with one of her books again! This one just didn’t do that for me. No matter what though, it’s still good – it’s Lora Leigh after all!
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.
Overall...this was fun, entertaining and had me fanning myself multiple times. I would recommend it if you're looking for a short read in between dark and long books.
The novel offers up the hopeful and no doubt true notion that life doesn’t end at 60, or at 75 for that matter, and we are never “finished products” — especially if we take some risks. For this baby boomer, Still Life was a smart and entertaining tonic.
Those readers who, like me, enjoyed Reaper’s Property will undoubtedly enjoy Reaper’s Legacy. It’s a better book, in my opinion but very much in the same vein.
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.
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.
“The Guts” is a decent performance, but doesn’t give us the “access all areas” badge I had expected.
This is probably Allen's best work to date. Curl up next to the fire with this cozy read that will almost assuredly make you feel good.
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.
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.
Flavia retains her droll wit...The solution to a murder is typically neat, and the conclusion sets up future books nicely.
...if you have had the pleasure of reading a meticulously researched, clearly written, scrupulously documented, even-handed and enlightening biography — like, say, the one Robert A. Caro is writing on Lyndon Johnson — Sherman’s book is going to be a major disappointment.
Even before the gripping plot unfolded, Monk Kidd had hooked me with her evocative language...In December, Winfrey announced The Invention of Wings as an Oprah’s Book Club 2.0 choice.
I still had some of the same issues I have with Ms. Feehan’s writing, drawing a single conversation out by about 30 pages, repetitive dialogue and fighting, and overbearing men, but they didn’t bother me as much this time because there was a strong story behind those flaws.
