I'm thinking now (yes, I know AFTER more than 10 books in) that KA writes romance the way I want my next romance to be - decisive, passionate and full of heart.
Close friends have heard me say time and time again that the next time I fall in love, it's going to be quick - none of that be friends first crap - and then off to a waterfall to get hitched then happily every after.
Yup, this book was another KA classic - hunky mountain man who knows what he wants, woman who doesn't really know what she wants but wants to find out and she finds it with him. Of course, some drama is required and we get that in heaps ranging from a kidnapping, car vandalism, bar fights, etc...
Not a 5 star book because well, Max (although I prefer Holden) did something not quite in character, I felt and I couldn't reconcile that with the rest of his `i'm-not-gonna-BS-you-so-you-better-get-used-to-it' approach to life.
I really like Nina too. Really like her. She wears her heart on her sleeve though she'll deny that but it's out there, for all to see.
And another spectacular, heart-warming epilogue from KA....more
I give it 4.25 stars. My favourite out of the Dream Man series.
Who knew that Tack was a real sweetie. And he was. Although I did not like what he didI give it 4.25 stars. My favourite out of the Dream Man series.
Who knew that Tack was a real sweetie. And he was. Although I did not like what he did the day after he slept with Tyra. THAT was so not cool. I'm surprised that Tyra didn't make more of a big deal about it. I would.
I also liked Tyra/Red's character. She's strong, impetuous, opinionated, a girly girl but still could be fiery. She's cool.
The epilogue this time around was not as strong as KA's previous epilogues. Which was a pity cos if it was, definitely 5 stars.
There were some tender moments in the story which was really great writing - when Tyra/ Red confronted Tack the morning after the situation with his daughter, Tabby. That got me almost weepy.
A really worthwhile read. Really worthwhile. ...more
5 stars because it made me smile, laugh, weep and sigh.
First, I've got to get this out of the way - I LOVE NATHAN! Taryn describes him as her `boysco5 stars because it made me smile, laugh, weep and sigh.
First, I've got to get this out of the way - I LOVE NATHAN! Taryn describes him as her `boyscout with a dirty side'. OMG! So true. Miranda was drawn to him because of his forearms...I so get that, I'm a forearms gal myself (if there weren't any other body part obviously showing i.e. the `V'). One of the most endearing characters I've read so far - smart (hello, patented inventor), ripped (hello, broad shoulders), loves the simple things in life (walks on the beach), loves dogs (brings treats!) - wrapped up in yummilicious goodness.
Gosh, it'll be a while before I can get him out of my head.
Miranda was a PITA (pain-in-the-ass, also as described by Taryn) in the beginning. I totally felt that Nathan was too, too good for her. But she redeemed herself.
I felt that the story was well-paced, the dialogue real and hilarious and the tender moments were really tender and got me weepy. Which was a surprise cos it came out of the corner and rammed at me.
At the end, I left the book with a contented sigh and a had feelgood feelings coursing through me. Love a book that does that. ...more
I started this book at 730pm. Stopped for 15 minutes to slurp down noodles for dinner. Then proceeded to continue reading. Despite the fact that I wasI started this book at 730pm. Stopped for 15 minutes to slurp down noodles for dinner. Then proceeded to continue reading. Despite the fact that I was supposed to be drawing up charts.
But a book that made me laugh like a maniac not 10 minutes into it is going to get my attention until the end. It's 1130pm and I'm finally done. And my sides are aching. So are my cheeks. The ones on my face. I know that I'm going to be laying in bed thinking about the book and giggling to myself in the dark like a loony.
Gosh, I thought I liked Rock Chick but I freaking love Hank's and Roxie's story! I've got to get me a Hank!
There was sizzle all over the book. Sizzle between Roxie and Vance, between Luke and Roxie and of course, between Hank and Roxie. The sizzle made my knees go weak.
And the fact that Roxie got sucked in playing Diablo - I freaking love Diablo! That made the book even more super than it already is. I love it when the girl gets to play video games and is not ashamed of it!
And Annette is freaking hilarious! The words that come out of her mouth, I need someone uncensored like that in my life.
And conversations! I'm pretty freaking sure that I'm going to grin everytime I hear this word. Conversations.
Great book! I needed it after such a long and unfunny day. ...more
