A humorous take on mortality...By book’s end, it’s evident that Crystal himself has grown old, but rather than make a secret of his age, he turns it into a punch line...A charming, warm, welcome read for Crystal’s legions of fans.
Now there's going to be a book 4 on the trial from Sara's point of view and then book 5 will be from Mark's point of view AND there's going to be a spin off series. What the hell? Normally I'd be dancing with glee...but in this instance I'm kind of not. I feel like the goal posts have changed half way through the game and I don't like it.
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 potential is apparent but it just somehow got lost in all of the hype.
Cunning develops her characters into real people who engage in a compelling and satisfying erotic romance.
A book I really enjoyed, especially being many months removed from reading 50 Shades. While there are definite similarities, Damien’s darkness and Nikki’s emotional turmoil packs a little more of a punch.
Nothing too titillating or edgy to offend anyone’s sensibilities. Unless you are overly fond of the English language, in which case abuse of the language and ellipses are sure to offend. Every trope imaginable from fan fictions is dragged out here.
Overall I gave this one a 2 1/2 out of 5 roses.
I’m pleased to say it exceeded my already lofty expectations
Between the sexy dirty-talk dialog, the carnal sex scenes, and the electrically charged emotions, it’s no wonder I was riding an emotional high all the way to the last page if not long after.
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.
As far as James’ writing, it’s very repetitive.
I find [the] message foul and damaging. Because of that fact and because it is rendered in dull, robotic prose, I hereby give this book an F.
Kusheil's Dart is a lot of things, but one thing it most certainly is not is bland.
