Want it or not, there is a relationship between them. They are fucking each other. and not doing anyone on the side. What would someone call fucking one person only, (sex)texting, going out with the same person all the time? I call it a freaking relationship.
All the angst IMO was uncalled for. Her ex showing up drunk and trying to force her. his ex going all freaky-carrie and smashing the bakery, the whole i'll-tell-him-i-love-him-on-his-office thing was a dead giveaway that something was going to happen and shit would hit the fan.
Personally, I like my heroines strong. I like when they are grown up and act like it. Hint: Missing by Noelle Adams. I like books that make me think and feel. I like characters that intrigues me. If I can tell what I'm going to read on the next twist, then what's the fun?
Dylan was too hot-headed and took conclusions too fast without stoping to THINK or ASK. Reese's jealousy was a bit over the top. The scene at the bar was just ridiculous.
The 1st person REALLY annoyed me and made the story longer than it needed to be. I'm giving this 1.5 to 2 stars since I've laughed at some moments, even if a few of them were of pure despair....more
Her Billionaires is the story of plus size analyst girl, Laura, firefighter Dylan and ski instructor Mike. Mike and Dylan were in a threesome relationship for about 10 years, and less than 2 years ago, their wife died from lymphoma, leaving them both her money. 1.1 billion dollars, and an anual income of about 50 millions. (Pretty cheap) They haven't learned to navigate the "rich" world, and are still clinging to what they know and pretty much hiding their fortune.
Trying to find a man is hard for Laura. So she decides to join a online dating site to try and find a man. She soons find herself being "courted" by Dylan, and afterwards Mike. Their story is full of misunderstandings and it happens too fast. From 0 to 60 they are amost in love, and then lapses of time happens, a week, a month 3 months... I could live with less FSoG references. (Seriously, DON'T be that author! FSoG was BAD enough already) I can remember at least 5 references, and I'm sure that's not all. There are some issues I just shruged or I wouldn't finish it. She just meet someone online, goes on a date with him, on the same day, and from there to his place to have sex. He could be a maniac for christ sakes! Don't be that stupid, stupid lonely girl who goes out with some random online guy, and then go to his place, and think it's safe because he's hot... Just DON'T. Go watch some Criminal Minds!
The book wasn't all bad, but it wasn't all good either. There were issues. In the end I finished mostly because it was for a challenge and I had no time to read another book.´
On a last note, the cover really bothered me. The series title says: BBW Menage. And the girl on the cover looks pretty skinny to me. Cover is not all, but it can make or break a book. ...more
Taking in account I haven’t read the first one in this series, I didn’t really know what I was in for when I started Fire Inside. That said. Let’s getTaking in account I haven’t read the first one in this series, I didn’t really know what I was in for when I started Fire Inside. That said. Let’s get down and dirty;
The Main Characters: Hop: He’s a loyal Chaos Brother. He knows his ground, and that he will do everything to protect not only the MC family, but those around it. Those like Lanie. Hop’s got two kids and a crazy ex-wife.
Lanie: Since I didn’t read the first book, I didn’t get why everybody referred to her as crazy. She was annoying sometimes. She’s also loyal, but feels guilty for what she put her best friend through 7 years ago. Her family is fucked up, and it messes with her mind sometimes. Alcoholic mom, cheater dad.
Chaos MC: I entered this book thinking I was reading Sons of Anarchy and was, not exactly disappointed, but I expected more in terms of the MC. There are some MC bond moments, and how they do anything it takes to protect the Chaos famil.
The writing: I almost gave this book up before chapter 2. At first, at Hop’s parts we got things in 3rd person, but when we were in Lanie’s head, it was 1st person, and that was freaking madly annoying. I didn’t liked Lanie at the beginning. Didn’t liked her in the middle, but toward the end she somehow got some backbone and I started liking her. The 1st person still bothered me though; it wasn’t so bad as in the beginning. I think there was too much BS before they got the core of the story. The part that I was reading because it was interesting, and not because I got the ARC. Sometimes I felt like I was reading an so talked-about trilogy that I won’t bother naming it.
The Language: I totally need a Hop dictionary! Most of the time I couldn’t get what he was saying, and at other times I was cracking up so bad I didn’t even care. He ate nouns, pronouns, and sometimes verbs and adjectives! It was crazy
The Good: When feelings got involved! It felt real and made the book worth! They had problems, but it felt real, and I really liked.
The Bad: I had some trouble with the 1st person, since I’m not a fan of it. The way Lanie thought at the beginning drove me about insane. I seriously wanted to throw her off of a cliff so she would just shut up. She would find a word and form 4, 5 phrases with it. This is a pet peeve for me, and around chapter 2, I browsed through goodreads and 98% of the reviews were 4 or 5 Stars and it mind boggled me. I liked toward the end, but it took me a while.
All in all, I had a good time reading the book, when I felt connected to it. Some parts were just too much and I wouldn’t have minded deleted off the book. I had double feelings about this story, and at parts I felt like I would never read this author again, and at others I thought I would totally read other works by this writer.
*** I received this as an ARC from Netgalley.com in exchange of an honest review. ...more
