I was not engaged or pulled in. I wanted it to be over.

This is Christian Romance or Inspirational Romance. I did not know that. There was nothing on the cover or inside to tell me that. It’s not a genre for me.

The story is too cloying/sweet. An incom...more

Nice. Enjoyable. Neat characters. Above average regency romance.

It didn’t feel like a copy of so many others. I liked that the author did not do “the big separation/fight.” Romance stories can be good without that.

By the time Sebastian was 12, both h...more

Mostly sex. Some good ideas and worth reading, just not a favorite. Not enough showing in the story.

This is a series of five books. It is one story broken into five pieces. You need to read them in order. I like the unusual main character Silvio. He’...more

It’s not the kind of book I would say “you have to read.” But it’s nice.

It’s what I expect from Harlequin. Nothing really special or unusual, but ok. I was pleased there were no contrived conflicts or stupidity.

2 ½ stars. Not a good story for me.

I liked the first half - the way the sisters ran away to get away from the abusive grandfather. I did not like the second half which was mostly the relationship between Prue and Gideon. It was all about she likes hi...more

DNF. Too much internal conflict and pondering. Not enough external action happening.

I read 49% of the book. Here is the first scene which is good. Ken and his brother Jack are outside guarding a home. Some military guys arrive. Ken and Jack shoot and...more

Story and characters are good. Sex scenes are a distraction.

The sex is not BDSM like the author’s other series. It’s more traditional. One of the sex scenes is cute with him warming her cold feet. I recommend reading the first four sex scenes and ski...more

3 ½ stars. Enjoyable story but a problem at the end.

I enjoyed the paranormal creations, the characters, the story - until the big separation. Then I got mad. It was stupid. Hero overhears part of a conversation, assumes the wrong thing, and plans to...more

4 ½ stars. I enjoy the author’s choices and dialogue.

Like the first book in the series, this is not great writing, but I felt good while reading it. The happiness flowed into my other life. And that makes it 5 stars for me.
