Release Me (Stark Trilogy, #1)
4.16

DNF. I made it 25% in, but nothing about this story was grabbing me.

Talk Me Down (Tumble Creek, #1)

Trial by Desire (Carhart, #2)
3.63
DNF at halfway point, just not feeling the romance and not caring about the hero or heroine. It was original so I can see why many gave it 5-stars, bu...more

Seduction
