I couldn't give it any less than 5 stars. I begun reading this book on a lazy Sunday afternoon and it completely sucked me in, but as I finished the fI couldn't give it any less than 5 stars. I begun reading this book on a lazy Sunday afternoon and it completely sucked me in, but as I finished the first part I was very disappointed that the focus of the narrative had shifted to another character,Liv, in fact I was so disappointed that I put the book down, I picked it up again on Monday and wow it was a good surprise, I absolutely loved the second part as well, Liv's connection to the painting, her story with Paul, her friend Mo, I loved everything about this book. Jojo's writing skills once again surprised me, I enjoyed this almost as much as her last book, she's an author who's certainly is becoming a favorite. ...more
4 stars * * * There are many good reviews about this book,so I'll just give my opinion: to sum up the plot: Jocelyn Butler is originally from America, but4 stars * * * There are many good reviews about this book,so I'll just give my opinion: to sum up the plot: Jocelyn Butler is originally from America, but moved to Scotland a few years after the tragic death of her family, she has recently graduated from college and is working as a bartender while "trying to be a writer" when her roomate moves to London she stars looking for an apartment, it's when she meets Braden, with whom she shares a cab. Braden carmichael a scottish, billionaire sexy as hell, there's an undeniable chemistry between them, but Brandon is taken when they meet.He is a serial dater, while Jocelyn doesn't "do relationships". Brandon is cocky ,handsome and bossy, while Jocelyn is afraid of commitments or letting people know much about her. They are different but there is this sizzling attraction building betwwen then in the beginning of the book that was nice. The story is mainly focused in their relationship and Joss' personal issues.
What I liked about this book: Jocelyn actually seeks professional help to deal with her problems (it's not like meeting Mr.Right was the cure for all her problems) I LOVED the secondary romance, it's between Braden's sister and his best friend.
What I did not like: Drama, drama , drama too much of it, I mean the heroine in this book was a really bit annoying IMHO.
Overall I gave it 4 stars, because I thought the story was entertaining, and it was a real page-turner....more
24 year-old goody two shoes Sarah takes over the responsibility of raising her nephew when her sister dies giving birth to him,3 stars, Brain Candy!
24 year-old goody two shoes Sarah takes over the responsibility of raising her nephew when her sister dies giving birth to him, when his Greek millionaire uncle steps in and wants the custody of the child. When Alex says he'd give Sarah whatever she wanted for his nephew's custody she asks him to marry her, so that she would somehow avenge the dead sister who was supposedly wronged by his brother.
Oh How can I begin? This little book was a quick read and it was such fun! I used to read A LOT of Lynne Graham, Diana Palmer and such when I was younger and my mum would indulge me, bringing home these books, anyway there's been so long since read one of those, they're always VERY predictable, millionaire possessive hero, naive, often stupid and much younger heroine, I remember reading books with the same plot, that is: ugly duckling aunt who married hot uncle to look after the baby, the reason why I read this one ,although the plot is worn out, was mainly because it was a marriage of convenience kind of book, yeah I'm a sucker for this theme. This book kept me up all night (that or the huge amount of caffeine that the pill for headache I took contained), anyway it was fun and reminded me of the lazy afternoons when I'd get home from school and would spend the entire afternoon curled up reading one of those books and then passed them on to my friends lol.
That was a fantastic read, It was my first book by Susanna and I’ll be certainly reading more of her books, the story takes place in both prese5 stars
That was a fantastic read, It was my first book by Susanna and I’ll be certainly reading more of her books, the story takes place in both present and future, having read a few time-travel stories I liked this one a lot, the way that Eva travels back in time was quite interesting, the plot twists were indeed unexpected and the way that everything unfolded was interesting. A bit about the story:
Eva travels back to her native England, to spread the ashes of her dead sister in Cornwall the place they used to go as children and had happy memories about, during that visit strange things begin to happen to Eva, she starts hearing voices and having visions of strange people, which she credits to her sleeping pills, only later she realizes that she had in fact traveled back to the 18th century, in the past she meets the Butler brothers, two Jacobite smugglers, and their Irish friend, at first she doesn’t believe any of them are real, surprisingly so Daniel believes she’s indeed a time traveler and they become somewhat friends with each other, having her pass as his mute housekeeper to explain her strange accent. The secondary characters, Eva’s childhood friends from the future (or her present) are also well constructed, likeable characters.
There was also something very nice about Susanne’s prose, the story is told to you in first person, through the perspective of Eva, the book is also descriptive without it being over the top, the text is very fluid and the narrative absorbs you completely, I caught myself wishing this book was longer, or that it had an epilogue (you know not that cheesy thing some authors write after the happy ending when they are all happy with 5 kids, I think I was hoping for a peek into their lives after the events in the book took place and they were having some domestic bliss, although I doubt they had much of it in a ship… but that is just wishful thinking) I’d recommend this book to everyone like me who enjoys a nice, well-written time travel story. ...more

I LOVE books with arranged marriage, so I couldn't resist this one, it was an easy read, not a fantastic one though... it didn't keep me glued to the book but it certainly was entertaining enough, the Spanish mistakes were a bit distracting too......more
first read in 2012 reread in 2015, still 5 stars. LOVE it!!!
First of all I need to say that I loved this so much that after finishing this book I wantefirst read in 2012 reread in 2015, still 5 stars. LOVE it!!!
First of all I need to say that I loved this so much that after finishing this book I wanted to read it all over again... Grace is a 23 year old fashion assistant who has been dumped by her boyfriend on her birthday, to make matters even worse she’s drowning in debt, it’s when she meets 41 year old J Vaughn an art-dealer who consoles her when she’s crying over a bad break-up at a store it’s when he treats her to a Marc Jacobs bag and asks her out on a date, to Grace it’s a straightforward date, but to Vaughn it’s more of a job interview. He asks Grace to become his mistress and sign an contract, which she first thinks about refusing but given her financial situation she end up accepting. NOW hang in there because this isn’t your average Mills & Boon romance, our characters have some serious issues that are tackled throughout the entire novel. What I liked the most about it it’s how their feelings were slowing developed by the author, how they formed a kind of friendship, their relationship was tumultuous with lots of ups and downs mostly due to Vaughn’s moodiness I swear I couldn’t figure him out until the middle of the book, he’s an arse to her in the beginning but he gets better as Grace and the reader get to know him. Grace’s issues though are pretty clear to us since the beggining, this book is more than just about their falling in love, it also has some pretty fucked up characters that develop beautifully as the story unfolds, I also quite enjoyed that it was fun and thoroughly entertaining . This book is a keeper, it’s the second by Sarra Manning that I’ve read and she’s becoming a favorite of mine....more
Set during WWII, Walt is an young American pilot who meets Allie a young heiress during the wedding of mutual friends, their friendship turns into lovSet during WWII, Walt is an young American pilot who meets Allie a young heiress during the wedding of mutual friends, their friendship turns into love through their many letters, but Allie is already engaged to a man picked by her parents. after finishing this book my last thought was Oh my wasn't it sweet, but I must make some more considerations, to start off I almost gave up on this book, self-sacrificing, goody two shoes heroines are hardly your ever my cuppa, Walt was the reason why I went on, however understandable the reasons why Allie acted the way she did I quite disliked her attitude for most part of the book. Okay Thats what I thought while I read this book, but thankfully both characters developed throughout the book rather beautifully, Walt got over his white lies and Allie blossomed into an independent young woman, not to say their spiritual growth. The book was very anguishing in some moments (way too many misunderstandings throughout the book left me feeling very anxious while reading it, which made me skip several pages to see how the whole drama would unfold). howeverI did finish the book with a good sensation that it wasn't a waste of time. I would very gladly read the other books of this series. I found the author very accomplished in describing the war effort, the missions and everything although I didn't much care for any of any of this. I would give it 3.75 stars, because I liked it very much, which is more than I like it and a little less than really liked it, at least to me, it was a good reading but not a great one, I'd give 4 stars to a great reading and 5 for a fantastic one. ...more
