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.
Sadly, Revealing Us was not as great as I was expecting. I wanted more romance, suspense, and intrigue, but instead the story was too slow and more talk than action.
The story itself is tightly written and features some extremely tender sex scenes that I really enjoyed.
Less interesting as a novel than as insight into the mind of a novelist.
Lush emotionalism, compelling characters and a moving storyline will win romance fans.
Anyone who is a fan of this kind of book is going to rate this book an 11. Other people, not so much.
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.
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
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.
Taking a Shot is a Jaci Burton erotic romance, and she delivers the passionate, inventive, sexually explicit love scenes that fans expect.
Told from multiple points of view, this installment would make a fine action-packed film with three strong male leads.
I was expecting the same level of wonder and excitement that the first two books in the series gave me, and instead I found myself constantly frustrated and annoyed while reading.
...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.
I...thought everything in this book was moving too fast...They've known each other for weeks, not months or years, weeks and now he wants to marry her. And then she actually says yes. I seriously felt like this whole thing with them moved way to fast.
Were this tale more artful, more literate, more lifelike, or realistic we should not have 500 pages of whips, chains, large breakfasts, and sex in the shower. (...) And then likely, in reading Fifty Shades of Grey, this reader’s face would not have had to turn the at least 20 shades of red that it did this time through.
