My Reckless Heart (Thorne Brothers #2)

3.81 of 5 stars 3.81  ·  rating details  ·  227 ratings  ·  14 reviews
Decker Thorne learned early life-lessons on the streets of London, stealing to earn his way. That devil-to-pay existence does not prepare him for someone like Jonna Remington, a fiercely independent woman who is not impressed with his charm or cunning. As owner of Remington Shipping, what Jonna needs is Decker's deft touch at the helm of her finest clipper.

What Happened?

Decker Thorne worked for Jonna Remington. Jonna is a 24 year old woman who has been running Remington Shipping since she was 15 years old. She has had to be tough and single-minded to keep the business she inherited upon her father's death, profitable. Before Decker came to Remington Shipping, he lived on the streets stealing to eat. He relies on his charm and looks to make his way. No two people could be more different, or are they?

What happened? In "My Steadfast Heart" the action
DNF. The book was good in parts, but I finaly had to conclude that the 2 main characters were totally unbelievable as actual living people. Yes, romance books are supposed to require a fairly large suspension of disbelief, but this one is too far over the top - there was almost nothing in the experiences and lives of the H/H that I could understand or relate to in any way.

The hero is unbelievable for another reason too - supposedly the middle son of English aristocrats who were murdered in a ro

goodman continues to disappoint with this series.

this time, second brother, decker thorne, romances jonna remington, owner of the shipping company for which he captains.

the heroine is one of those Rigidly In Control types who Can't Stand Her Body's Reaction to the Hero (*sighhhhhh* not only is this super cliche'ed, but i have little patience for authors who imply that strength in women equals frigidity). lots of immature bickering between the two. and a bizarre and ridiculous series of near-dea
Decker, the charming, fast on his feet sea captain endured Jonna, the strong, confident prickly boss of Remington Shipping. Never seeing eye to eye on anything flourished slowly into a full blown cautious dance between them. Complicated issues involved trust, the Huntress, the Underground Railway, family, and a hard pressed suitor, all worked to keep them apart and at odds. Slavery and the actions to circumvent it was secretive and later, forced the major characters to be honest and revealed the ...more

I felt the writing was just not very good on this one. I loved the first in the series but the flow in this one was awful. I enjoyed the plot and the story line, but something was just too jumpy with the writing.
I was less into this romance than I was the first in the series, but the setting! Pre-Civil War Boston, you guys, complete with abolitionist plots. Also, ships and London, but Boston!
It wasn't bad but it was kind of boring so I didn't finish it.
Pre-civil war America is not a setting I typically read; in fact I thought this was a London pirate story. However, I was quickly caught up in the story and picked it up often, like any of my other romance choices. Starting in the middle partially ruins the first of the series for me, but I fully intend to delve into the other two brothers' stories.

I am partial to Jo Goodman, and I am partial to this book. It might not be perfect, but it holds the top spot on my most beloved pure romance book list.

It took me time to warm up to the lead characters but I was quite taken by the end.

To find characters to illustrate my first family saga, I cut out models from the Sears catalogue. I was in fourth grade, but it was a start. In seventh grade I wrote a melodrama about two orphan sisters, one of whom was pregnant. There was also a story about a runaway girl with the unlikely name of Strawberry and one about mistaken identities and an evil blind date. My supportive, but vaguely conc ...more
