I’m way behind on this, mostly because I haven’t really been reading that much. I just wasn’t feeling it, being in a slump is tough, so it was all stuff that I read quickly (in a day) and all escapism. I do think that it’s interesting that I can only really identify the books that annoyed me!
I had been putting off reading this and I wish I hadn’t. The set up is ridiculous and not at all believable but I liked it and I liked that, as with all the Balogh books I’ve read, the happy ending doesn’t make it all better.
Everyone is going on about this and while the way that the drama is piled on is a bit OTT (I mentioned this in the last book), I do like that sense that everyone in these books is imperfect and trying. They do some iffy things but there is proper imperfect difficult love both romantic and familial.
This was a recommend read and it was fine but really everyone just needed to talk to each other.
This was a throughly enjoyable. completely ridiculous romp. Fun
Fun Shannon Stacey escapism..
Fun, ridiculous escapism. That also moved the whole over arching story forward.
Oh this one annoyed me. I liked it, I was primed to like it but the slut shaming. I really, really, really object to ex girlfriends of the hero being referred to as sluts or money grabbing. Also a 12 year age gap which I didn’t much care for but don’t mind in other contexts..
Sarina Bowen goes back to my favourite series and crosses it over with her current one and it was fun, also escapism but fun.
I can’t tell you why I liked it but I really did.
I liked this, I liked the hero and I liked that the heroine was damaged but not defeated and it all worked out.
