The start of the story is good, but waned as the story progressed. I got tired of the h/h. I got tired that they are only going on circles and not addressing their issue. It should have been great the heroine is also straight forward. Well 2 stars for this....more
Loved it. It is like a Christmas story, in a very romantic way. I liked how the author build the h/h of story. It is a good thing that it is only a noLoved it. It is like a Christmas story, in a very romantic way. I liked how the author build the h/h of story. It is a good thing that it is only a novella. Since it is focused more about the heroine. There are some issues that need to be addressed for the hero's part, but I think it is good of the author not to prolong the story since it might bore the readers.
I liked the story,but it lacked the emotions that I wanted to be involved between the h/h. It is a 4 stars. Now I am intrigued more about this author....more

I had finished Ms. Monica Burns His to Command novella. Since, it is a short story I know I should expect a fast pace story. Although, I still wanted a dept relationship from the h/h. I don't like the idea that h/h reunited after 25 yrs. For me it seems a very long time. This is a first book I read from this author. I was surprised that it a BDSM novella. It's not a problem, since I sometimes read book from that genre. The thing is the story lacks the emotional love that supposed the h/h should have. For me until the end they are just best friends. For me this is 2 stars.
I am done with the 2nd part of the novellas collection. The story of The Kissing Bough by Madelynne Ellis. This is the first story that I read from this author and, I am surprised because this an M/M/F relationship. I am not fun of this kind of story. I can't imagine a love story that involves 3 people. It is difficult for me to give a review. I liked the banters between the 3 characters. For me it is just that. I think a 2 stars will do.
I did not read Ms. Samantha Kane story because it is also a M/M/F story. I am very finish of that kind.
For the story All A Mistress Wants by Eliza Lloyd. It has a nice plot and I just wish it will be a novel rather than a short story. There are so many aspects that can be explored. The past of the heroine, how she end up to be a mistress. The hero's love for his wife. Since, it is a novella all of those things are lacking. No emotions involved. Although, I got curios about the brother's story. For me it is a 2.5 stars.
The novella is from Ms. Kate Pearce. For I like the plot of the story. I liked the hero and heroine. I liked their story to be more. For me it is 3 stars
The final novella is from my favorite author Jess Michaels, a novella A Christmas Kiss. I liked the flow of the story. It is complete. It is good for a short story. 4 stars for it....more
From all the fuss that it's been circulating, especially that this book has a film already. I gathered myself and read it. So what I thought about it?From all the fuss that it's been circulating, especially that this book has a film already. I gathered myself and read it. So what I thought about it? Let us start with the plot. I am sucker for dark hero and bookish heroine. It is a good plot and it is the same with the HR books that I am reading. Good point for that. Now the characters. Brooding hero's good for me, but heroine who can't decide what she really wants and after how many times smexy things that they did. That I can't really get. From the start the hero is honest with her and she loves him then accept the bad and good side of him. If you know that you can't do what he wanted then get out! For the whole times of the book, that is the confusing part. I can't understand the heroine. Honestly by the time I reach chapter 16 I want to give up. The story is just getting around and around with the same reason. It did not go further. It is kind of tiring.
For the writing of the story. This is weird because the style of it is the same with the HR authors that I read. The scenes and smexy stuff is kind of the same. It sometimes shift from the regency period to the present period. It also lacks description of the setting. I know it's a 20th century plot, but still I want to picture the whole story. The smexy stuff is too much that I bored reading it. There scenes that skip it and just scan for any important banters. Speaking of dialogues, if I will sum it up. The dialogues can be compiled to 3 chapters and then the rest is all smexy and inputs of the heroine.
Inspite all of this, I loved the wooing stage. That will be the first early chapters. The email exchange is sweet, but a little stupid. For me you can send text messages. There are witty and funny banters that made me smile. I don't have anything against BDSM books, I read some but I am not a fan. This book should had a good rating, if there is dept in her writing. More of the h/h not the BDSM part.
To sum it up. This book can be summarize into 1 book. Less the smexy parts and more about the hero's secrets and emotions of the h/h. That is the reason I finished the book. I am expecting a big revelation from the hero, especially after the heroine's outburst. CRAP! Why should it be a 3 part book?!
This is the first book I read from Ms. Bolen. I loved the plot of the book and fast pace of it. The secondary involvement of the siblings is also a goThis is the first book I read from Ms. Bolen. I loved the plot of the book and fast pace of it. The secondary involvement of the siblings is also a good touch. The h/h are good togther, but I got tired of all the suspicions. I like more to read about the remaining 2 siblings and hope that they their own story. Unfortunately this is not a series books.
So, what do not like. There so many issues that should had been elaborated rather than the misunderstanding jealousy of the h/h. There should have more story of the younger sibling capture. Ending is brief. It should have been more emotions on the h/h for their confessions of love for each other.
Inspite, I enjoyed this story a very light read. A 3.5 stars for it....more
These compose of the different stories by different authors. I do wanted to review each short story, but I think that since each story is intertwinedThese compose of the different stories by different authors. I do wanted to review each short story, but I think that since each story is intertwined to each other. I will make it a whole review for it. Each author brought a good h/h. I loved how the characters and how it fell in each story.
What I love is Maya Rodale and Miranda Neville. I liked how funny and capturing their short story is. The story is right and intriguing. A good start for Ms. Maya Rodale story. Both are 4 stars for me.
For Caroline Linden and Katharine Ashe, both got me a little bored. I am not fun of the time travel story and I got a little disappointed that Ms. Ashe story is like that. It would be nice if all the story sticks to HR story, like the other short stories. Both are 3 stars.
For the epilogue, I was hoping for a total of it. A brief summary of each h/h. A 3.5 stars....more
Honestly, I am not a fun of the Mcbride brothers. I prefer the eccentricities of the Mackenzie. Since, I am wanted to finish this series I guess I doHonestly, I am not a fun of the Mcbride brothers. I prefer the eccentricities of the Mackenzie. Since, I am wanted to finish this series I guess I do not have a choice.
This story has a good story line. I am intrigued by it. I like the hero's character. For the heroine I do not like her. For she is childish and easy. She grew up in the East End for all of her Cockney talk, it failed to reflect on her. She was used being hit by her beau and farther, but there is emotions on her. For her all is happy and positive which I think normal if a person lives in that area. It seems what lack on this story is emotions from each character. The mystery is not really a mystery. As I go on reading every chapter,I am looking for something that will make this book a 4 stars. I did not found it. For a 3 stars for this.
What I realized as I read this series, is that most of the books are the same. The plot and characters. What stand out is Ian and Beth story. The reason that the hero is refreshing and the twist of the story is captivating. ...more
The first book of the new series of Ms. Grace Callaway. In total this book is amazing and fun. For the hero's character, we have the brooding and starThe first book of the new series of Ms. Grace Callaway. In total this book is amazing and fun. For the hero's character, we have the brooding and starve for love. The heroine for me a little bit childish. Although as the story goes, she redeems herself.
The killer is some what a nuce touch and also the twist of the story. It is a sad thing that I already drew the final conclusions of all that in the middle of the story. I already had a hunch of who is involved what is the real story behind the hero.
Nevertheless I know that each reader will still enjoy this story and will want more of this series. Now I can't wait for Thea's story. I have a feeling that it will be Thea and Tremont story next....more
Another's Mackenzie happily ever after. Honestly, I got bored of this book. I don't know how many times I fell asleep while reading this book. It is tAnother's Mackenzie happily ever after. Honestly, I got bored of this book. I don't know how many times I fell asleep while reading this book. It is too long and a rushed ending. I love Daniel especially in the previous books. I am expecting a more of his story. There is nothing wrong with the heroine. I like she is the one who has a past secrets.
What do not like, is the story and how it goes on and on. I think this story should be just a novella. It can be as short and simple. I would rather have Lloyd and Louisa story be more deeper.
What made me go on, is the involvement of the Mackenzie. I like how the author shows the importance of family in the story. Well what more I can say but a 3 stars for this....more

I love how involved the Mckenzie's are. I so love Daniel and wishing that there is an amazing story for him.
A 4 stars for this story. Now I can't to go to Daniel's happy ever after....more
The first book of the Mcbride brothers. This can be read as a stand alone, since it is not really connected to the Mackenzie brothers. Anyway this booThe first book of the Mcbride brothers. This can be read as a stand alone, since it is not really connected to the Mackenzie brothers. Anyway this book for me just turned out okay. From the hero's character it is a mixed of Ian and Cameron. Maybe that is the reason why I am not that amaze of the book. For the heroine,h her character is strong and steady. Honestly, for me this story is just another same HR story.
It seems it lacks a good story line and it is kind of redundant with the previous books. One thing is this fast pace story, but ordinary. A 3 stars. I just wish that there is more story for the remaining Mcbride brothers....more

A bloody 5 stars! It shows what a family should be. ...more
