Fans of smalltown contemporaries will savor this delicious and heartwarming story, a refreshingly realistic romance between two great characters.
There are moments of absolute sweetness, and moments of pure raw passion. There are moments of heartache, and moments of clarity between the two that will touch your heart. Yep…this is one of the books that will have you all over the place emotionally, and I FLOVE that.
Crystal the comedian will do almost anything to get a laugh. Crystal the writer allows himself to flop at the box office, and suffers the many indignities of old age, with his teenage sweetheart and wife of 43 years still alongside him. In the end, the reader concludes that Crystal isn't just funny: He's a mensch too.
...for me this particular book, the lack of something significant happening, and reappearance of Sara's friend only towards the end almost as an afterthought - all of this did not work as a whole.
The story itself is tightly written and features some extremely tender sex scenes that I really enjoyed.
Elegant and cool are the adjectives that come to mind in reading one of Louis Begley’s beautifully crafted novels. Add a touch of sardonic irony. His latest, “Memories of a Marriage,” is no exception.
Lush emotionalism, compelling characters and a moving storyline will win romance fans.
...the level at which this couple loathes each other for the majority of the story makes the hasty resolution hard to believe.
Cunning develops her characters into real people who engage in a compelling and satisfying erotic romance.
This story was an addictive read with well-developed characters, an interesting plot and bittersweet moments. I’m looking forward to reading the next book in the Stark trilogy.
Left with a cliffhanger and unanswered questions it’s good to know that there will be another book.
...Heat Rises ended up being a miss for me. The character development of Laura and Ethan was non existent, and neither had any personality showing.
I’m pleased to say it exceeded my already lofty expectations
The ploys for future stories were obvious and unlike a couple of twists to the Tohr and No’One storyline, were predictable which lessened their emotional impact.
Ty and Jenna are two character you love regardless of whether they ended up together or not. But together they are some kind of wonderful.
Told from multiple points of view, this installment would make a fine action-packed film with three strong male leads.
I wish Ms James had written these books from both of their point of views.
...makes use of every negative cliché attributed to romance novels and tarnishes the genre unfairly.
Banks nicely balances bedroom and battlefield action as Rionna’s tough swordsmanship and Caelen’s tender lust propel the couple and the clans toward harmony.
This second installment is quite possibly my least favorite book of the trilogy. I expected heat and instead received a staggering amount of character development.
