There’s never anything predictable about stubbornly optimistic and protective Jess and her oddball kids, or the distracted Ed and his disjointed work-family relationships. It’s exactly that quality that makes this offbeat journey so satisfying, and Moyes’s irrepressible flaws-and-all characters so memorable.
A multifaceted cast of characters, a plot twist involving the legendary Romanovs, and plenty of sensual romance will keep readers riveted.
Northanger Abbey is frequently thought of alongside Austen’s juvenilia. Too often, this oddly literal reimagining comes off as simply juvenile.
Foster skillfully balances steamy seduction and police work as Margo and Dash learn to be a team in and out of the bedroom.
All and all, I think The King is an excellent addition to the Black Dagger Brotherhood books. I was pulled into the story immediately and I was never bored, nor did I skim.
Colleen's feelings of abandonment and Lucas's unstable early years offer compelling character traits that keep the pages turning despite a thin plot.
A thought-provoking look at women of a certain age and the choices they make when they realize their lives aren’t exactly what they expected—or thought they were.
Despite the many characters and subplots, this is easily read as a standalone, though taking in the entire series will only add to the pleasure.
While chaotic at times, this delightfully zany novel is anything but disappointing, and Laurenston’s fans will gobble it up like Livy with a jar of cinnamon honey.
As Thorn and India hesitantly reveal their secrets to each other, they wonder whether they can accept the risks of love. James’s wonderful cast and effortless plotting make this a delicious romance to be savored again and again.
Wrath’s story is just as it should be, I saw him grow and become the true Alpha vampire he is throughout all the series and damn if JR Ward did not knock one “out of the park” with The King.
If I could give Maybe Someday 10 Stars, I would give it 20 stars. The soundtrack by Griffin Peterson adds another 20 stars! Together Colleen and Griffin created a beautiful and magical experience that will live in our souls.
If you enjoy contemporary female-centric stories but prefer them with emotion and integrity as opposed to the trademark sass and sarcasm of many chick lit titles (or maybe just want to try out something a little different for a change), I’d definitely recommend checking out Evening Stars...
Laine loves to make soup on rainy days. (We’re told this a few too many times). Carr writes the equivalent of Laine’s soup - cozy, rainy-day books that make you feel a little bit warmer and a little bit better about the world. This isn’t a perfect version of Carr’s recipe, but it’s definitely an acceptable variation.
The romance is the best part! The book goes back and forth between the future and three months before. You see where Harlow and Grant first hit it off and now how they stand.
Less funny than Evanovich’s knockabout Stephanie Plum adventures but less mannered and annoying too: a comfy seriocomic caper just right for beach reading while you wait for the inevitable summer movie.
Marco is up this time around and it is his job to find a long lost family member. Things don't go as planned and it is mainly due to Basha's life experiences since she went missing all those years ago. The story unfolds slowly with small pieces of information about Basha's past being added along the way.
Fans of smalltown contemporaries will savor this delicious and heartwarming story, a refreshingly realistic romance between two great characters.
All superb storytelling aspects combine to make Concealed in Death another intellectually engaging and emotionally satisfying novel. Loyal readers will finish Concealed in Death eager for volume 39.
I thoroughly enjoyed this slow paced loving. The ending was inevitable but reading it all come together and forging relationships with all the various members of the Abbott family was restful.
