It actually reminded me of the Pregnancy & Passion series by Maya Banks! Although I really did not like Beth. As a heroine, she frustrated me so much that I wanted to roll my eyes and hit my head against a wall every time she came up with an excuse to refuse Kevin. Seriously?! Why can't you just give him one chance! Apparently, all he's good for to her was sex and then never again after that.
Kevin was just amazing. I loved his character and I whole-heartedly believed it when he told Beth that he loved her. Except... she threw it back into his face. I have no idea why Kevin just didn't walk away right then, but I guess to him, Beth was the one. He wanted to fight for her! I wanted Beth to fight for Kevin too; she sort of did in the end but I thought that was measly compared to how she treated Kevin since day one. I didn't really thought the ending was justice to Kevin's love for her because she really needed to grovel more.
But besides from the horribleness that was Beth, I really did love the B-plot in this book! Paulie, Kevin's best friend and waitress at Jaspers, finally gets her happily ever after with her once upon a time fiance Sam Logan! They had a past that was pretty interesting. Her romance with Sam was definitely something that I enjoyed thoroughly, contrast to Beth and Kevin of course. Overall, I did like this book but it wasn't exactly my favorite. Looking forward to the next Kowalski Family book!(less)

I thought this story was quite charming and sexy in it's own way. Aimee, our heroine of the story, ends up finding herself in a situation where she has to retrieve a stole ring from Adam de Vey, Marquis de Nattes. What's so interesting is that Adam has essentially been in love with Aimee for six years without realizing it. It was probably because Aimee had been married to his friend, who unfortunately has been killed after a duel, leaving Aimee a widow. I really have no sympathy for the dead husband because even though Aimee had loved him so whole-heartedly, he still went out floundering about and got himself killed in the process. Anywho, and so the story begins with Aimee devising out a plan to seduce and distract Adam while trying to retrieve the ring in one of his many coats' pockets. While on the other hand, Adam believes that his dreams have finally come true and that the lovely Aimee has finally noticed him! It's quite funny, unbelievable, and cute at the same time to be honest.
The Lovely Duckling - ★★★★★
This sweet this story is my favorite one out of the three! It's about forgiving someone as well as finding true love in the end. Emilie de Sarron and Joseph d’Alumbert have known each other for many years; ever since the day he and his friends have scorned her and she left society as a result of it. At first, I didn't like how Joseph ended up lying to Emilie by impersonating himself as his twin brother, Vincet. But then... I would have to agree that if he had went and told Emilie that he was the man who had essentially 'ruined' her image, well. I don't think that would be a pleasant picture at all. But I loved how through all the letters that they wrote back to each other, they both ended up falling in love without realizing it. Overall, very cute story!
The Princess and the Diamonds - ★★★☆☆
Hmm, this was an okay story for me. I didn't exactly feel much for the heroine, Princess Gabrielle. The hero, Mathias Paul Thomas de Tesson, Marquis de Montfort.... Well, he is one fine hero. Very sexy too. Although the story was good, I felt as if it could have been longer and that the characters should have been more fleshed out. In the end, I liked it but I wouldn't be able to remember much about it afterwards.
I didn't realize that I was reading the second book.... Oh well. I'll eventually get to the first book later on!(less)
