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.
While this was an okay book it really didn’t feel like the story went any where. And this was a long book around 450 pages. And it seems like a lot of those pages were just filled with random words.
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.
...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.
Anyways, this was a great addition to the Line of Duty series. You have everything that makes this girl happy, an aggressive male who isn’t afraid to talk dirty, a strong heroin who isn’t too timid stick it to the man, a relationship that is believable, humor laced throughout and drama that isn’t too over dramatized (for lack of a better word).
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.
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.
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.
Lost Lake made me long to rediscover a place in my own past, it made me want to go back to where I grew up and just feel what I felt back when I was a child again. But while it awakened those nostalgic feelings and memories, it left me satisfied because, even though I can’t go back at this time, I know I can in the future.
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.
Not much mystery and even less poison, but it’s hard to resist either the genre’s pre-eminent preteen sleuth or the hushed revelations about her family.
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.
Unfortunately, I didn’t like this book, nor the characters. Disappointment doesn’t begin to express how I feel. I wanted so much more for Donovan.
If you think Gardner pulled out all the stops in D.D.’s previous cases...you ain’t seen nothing yet. Better fasten your seat belt for this roller-coaster ride through family hell.
For me, Before Jamaica Lane features a truly enjoyable, if young, couple and a really satisfying love story.
Watching these two come together was awesome...If you love imperfect Alpha heroes and heroines who have no fear then you will love this book.
The story has a little bit of mystery surrounding an ancient art book. I liked how that part of the story played out. The thing I also liked about this book is that it has a HEA in the end.
A polished professional like Ms. Krentz always delivers excellent writing and in this case it is backed by an interesting, enticing story and absorbing mystery. If you are a fan of romantic suspense at all this book is a must read.
