Mathewson , I've been a fan right from the beginning. I've read the EMT, PYTE and Hollywood Harts series, and I'm even waiting for those books (esp, Jilly's one and what happens with Joshua), but with NFH I'm done.
The books that previously gave me joy have become a race of which becomes more ridiculous and I can't watch it happen. I get that the Bradfords are not very different, but I do wish the heroes and heroines would not look like copy-pasted from each-other.
When there's a book from any of the series mentioned before I might try it, but for now a bitter goodbye from me :(...more
It only got 3 and 1/2 fro me because : 1. The heroine was so naive and quick to snap judgements, it got bI love AS, but this book did not hit the spot.
It only got 3 and 1/2 fro me because : 1. The heroine was so naive and quick to snap judgements, it got boring after a while hearing her defending *them*.
2. Something did happen and the hero hurt the heroine. That was something I completely understood and would have done the same. However, for the next 10-15% of the book we had to be bashed in the head with how wrong it was. Well, I know there are all these feminists popping out from every side, but as for me I was totally OK and ready to go on with the book PLEASE!!
3. And the last one, the ending was rushed, I ended up at 95% hopping and begging for a HEA.
Big fan of the author, will definitely read everything by her, but this one was not her best :(...more
I know that the story is all about empowering women, but what's empowering in your success depending onI'm sorry but this seemed weak and petty to me.
I know that the story is all about empowering women, but what's empowering in your success depending on blaming a man for not marrying you??? Yes, he's probably a moron for not noticing you, but you're the moron for being stuck on it.
I was reminded a little bit too much of the stories where MC's are stuck in High school bullies, except here it was a guy scared to commit (taylor swift much ???)
Anyway, yes I do know that everybody and their guru are blaming the hero for manipulating the heroine, but me ? I do a standing ovation to the dude strong enough to be willing to marry that woman, who was willing to do it in the way she couldn't say no. Why can't the man trap the woman, or is it wrong ?
I really hope that in the future she'll not humiliate him if he makes another mistake, but I'm 100% sure that if he forgets to do something , the whole city will discover it before him *facepalm*...more
I liked this book very much. It fulfilled a lot of my expectations and I loved the MCs.
Where I had a problem was the story... It seemed too rushed at tiI liked this book very much. It fulfilled a lot of my expectations and I loved the MCs.
Where I had a problem was the story... It seemed too rushed at times and too slow in others. And it irritated me when one of those parts would come and I would have to read slower or faster to catch up.
Also I get that we were introduced to new things to make the story ready for book 3, but I wanted more now !!
Maybe next time I'll wait until book 4 (maybe) releases before I read book 3.....more
As for the rest, I'm really annoyed by the portrayal of Holly. It*****REVIEW HAS SPOILERS****
Mark is my own superman.
I LOVE YOU MARC *throws panties*
As for the rest, I'm really annoyed by the portrayal of Holly. It was like the author was trying to shove down our throats how amazing she is, and it only pissed me off. author : Hey, look what they say Holly is and what Holly can do !!! Me : Yeah, but Marc did all that action. Author : I'm doing a speech about Holly's awesomeness in different characters minds Me : Great, but she has done literally nothing except making some guys horny *facepalm* Author : Now, while all the guys, including Gabe and Marc, are risking their lives and even Sophie and Kate are brave, I'm talking about Holly's plans. Me : Just STFU. Author : It's the end , you see how brave Holly was saving Marc with her sniper-like accuracy.. Me : Yeah, this has been great. It's been really amazing reading about all the action and about super-Marc and super-Gabe, and I'm going to get a drink before you tell me that Holly deserves 2 more medals because the sun shines and rises in her *******.
Honestly, I would have loved Holly a fa&uwa lot more if you'd have let her be a material girl, instead of bashing me in the head with her superspy skills (which I honestly did not see ) :(...more
