Usually I will not finish a book with married characters who will cheat. I did so with this book - and only did to complete a challenge here. It was a bad book before the cheating was consumated - and frankly it only got worse. Bad dialogue, characters who didn't really connect, un-sexy sex scenes. All I have to say is that I am glad I didn't pay for this book and that this book should be avoided. I can't think of one redeeming quality - and a book has to be very bad for me to not see any positi ...more
Ouch. Epitome of painful writing at its finest. I grabbed The End of Summer as an Amazon freebie, purely for cover alone. And shoot did I miss the blurb description, this is not my cup of tea. When the typos exceeded maximum, I threw this on text to speech just to get it over with. I wouldn't recommend but to each their own.

I truly enjoyed this story! I enjoyed the sex scenes more in this story then in The End of Summer. I loved the end with the perfume gift. That was romatic, and I'm a hopeless romantic! I only rated it four stars because none of the characters were named "Heather" ... maybe next time ;-)

My kindle cried when I downloaded this ebook. I ignored it. Poor sap, now I know why. This was a really disturbingly dumb read. I don't even understand how it got to the free kindle book list! SHEESH...

This review is from: The End of Summer (Kindle Edition)
The End of Summer is a quick read. I liked the fact that its a man telling the story this time. Im not gonna into details on what the book is about because YOU should read it. I was drawn to this book I could not put it down, the love scenes were hot. And then the ending came around, I loved the ending I didn't see it coming which is great I don't like predictable books. It was my favorite. Looking forward to your next piece Alex M. Smith. K

123kb, contemporary, takes us through Richard's turbulent past
Feb 08, 2013 Karen rated it it was ok
Shelves: fiction, contemporary
The dialog in this contemporary novella is very stilted at times. The rampant non-use of contractions in casual conversations by several characters especially stood out. This is in the romance section on Amazon, but I wouldn't exactly call this a romance, especially in light of the ending, but also because the connection between the two main characters didn't really have a great build up. I wasn't hot enough for me to call it erotica, either, so I guess it's just fiction.

I loved this very quick read. There are only a few character but they have been built up just enough to know who they are and a little history. The ending was definitely not what I expected and now I want to read the next one. This happens every time! I enjoyed reading a male point of view, which I don't do often. Would your mate really be proud of you for kissing your girlfriends mother or going further?

Nice story, I can't stand "cougars" for personal reasons but I enjoyed the couple of sex scenes but would like more ;-)
