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).
Quindlen has always excelled at capturing telling details in a story, and she does so again in this quiet, powerful novel, showing the charged emotions that teem beneath the surface of daily life.
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.
Filled with rough language, no-holds-barred sex, the rumblings of a biker war, and threats from the past, this fast-paced novel entertains while setting up the next book in the series.
“The Guts” is a decent performance, but doesn’t give us the “access all areas” badge I had expected.
This is a book that keeps you contemplating long after you've turned the last page. I loved it, and you will, too.
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.
...Andrew’s revelations are little more than clues to an amusing, if tedious, puzzle. Andrew believes that the brain cannot know itself, but the question is whether the reader can know Andrew’s.
...I am appalled that I had never heard of the Grimkés before, and thank the author sincerely for allowing me to make their acquaintance.
All in all there were some great parts, and not so great parts of this book. Finally getting to see Dimitri and Skyler get their happily ever after was a treat, but I wanted more. I was left feeling like I had missed out on so much from them, and wished we could have seen more of their actual falling in love.
This remains a very well written series, by a very good author. It is a minor drop in the bucket compared to the whole series.
Lisa Gardner writes great psychological thrillers, and Fear Nothing is yet another excellent example. Highly recommended.
For me, Before Jamaica Lane features a truly enjoyable, if young, couple and a really satisfying love story.
Love: *SIGH* This love I can read over and over. GAH! It’s wicked yet sweet. Enticing and thrilling Cora is the perfect girl for Rome. Together, they are dynamite!
The love story between Angie and Evan was almost secondary for me. Though I have to tell you, I loved all the angst, and trouble they gave each other, because when they finally came together stripped down to who they really are with no masks it was awesome.
Together, Lucy and Mason must puzzle out who placed the body in the chimney and whether the death of her aunt is somehow connected, while they also contemplate the renewal of an attraction neither was really aware of in their teen years. Krentz has done a solid job of melding the excitement of a thriller with the sweetness of new passion.
