Powered by brilliantly rendered characters, an intriguing topic (parasomnia), and a darkly lyrical narrative that captures the melancholic tone of autumn in New England perfectly (red maples in their “death throes”), this novel has only one weak point—its highly improbable conclusion, which may leave readers unsatisfied.
All in all “Fifty Shades Darker,” was a good read. The sequel is better as the characters grow and we delve deeper into Christian Grey’s psyche.
Watching these two characters on their journeys of discovery while slowly falling in love makes for the best possible reading experience!
Michaels continues her streak of writing believable and heartwarming novels that just keep getting better.
Overall, this was a completely enjoyable 3 hours I spent reading the book. I would still love to see something on Jack and George. George…..he’s so complicated. I want to read his story- maybe someday. I would give this book an A but my remaining disgruntled-ness with Sean is keeping me from making that jump.
I loved this book for so many reasons. It makes you feel as if you are part of what is going on. It has characters that you love and want to know more about. It’s heartwarming and fun.
...Doyle and Riley’s search for the hidden Island of Glass while being hunted by the weakened goddess of death maintains suspense, and a fellow Guardian’s grandmother, brought in to help heal Riley after she is gravely injured, provides wonderful local color.
...the main couple in this book is Elise and Axe and I really enjoyed them...This was a really great read and I can’t wait for my next Black Dagger Fix!
The suspense story suffers from Krentz spending too much text introducing investment-club members in lieu of building ties between Charlotte and Max...Fortunately, the suspense picks up when Max and Charlotte realize they need to trust each other and work in close proximity to bring down the privileged villain.
There is a sweetness at the core of these stories; they offer us a sense of awakening and gentle adventure, and provide a more straightforward coming of age than we are usually offered in the real world.
THE MISTLETOE SECRET has some quirky twists and turns. It reads easily, quickly, and is a pleasant, if implausible, love story.
There are no surprises, little character growth and formulaic. It doesn’t matter. A book can simply be fun and entertaining.
Luke and Polly didn’t seem like the most likeliest of couples, but they were able to give each other the proverbial push. They learned to lean on each other and found something neither of them thought they could have. A sexy, fun read...
This is a short novella that is filled with lots of emotion and interest. It is definitely part of a series but that doesn’t matter as you quickly get involved with Rory and Max.
Top talent Feehan’s darkly dangerous and sexy world of shapeshifting leopards returns for another scintillating installment.
A well written and quick moving story I found myself immersed in the setting and the characters. Someone to Love is a great read for a fall afternoon curled up in your favorite chair. I personally can’t wait for the next book in the series.
In other words, Judas is a novel – the first from Amos Oz in more than 10 years, and a very absorbing addition to his remarkable oeuvre – that begins with endings.
Her world is intricate and immersive, and her characters feel like home. It's okay that the pace isn't exactly pulse-pounding, although Mountain does have its gripping moments of action, suspense, and shattering revelation.
Though not always thought-provoking, they are quick and easy reads that leave readers satisfied because no matter the sorrow, her empowered heroines triumph.
My nitpicks are limited to these: The tete-a-tetes about the voyeurism going on in Lumia got repetitive...Overall, though, Archangel’s Heart was a thoroughly enjoyable addition to the Guild Hunter series.
