(Slight spoilers)

I really liked how this started off. The banter was great, the sex was hot, even the horny heroine and alpha hero didn't put me off. But as I read on I realised the story has no clear direction except for the heroine to mess up time and time again. And I would have normally been fine with it once or twice but three times is when I call it quits.

Also I found a lot of the jokes overused. There's only so many times they can joke about sucking that it starts to not be fun
How disappointing. I was loving this book because I was sure I'd get an incredible hero that fights to show the heroine why they should be together. It started off great but the author totally ruined the entire story by having him give up NOT EVEN halfway and have the heroine chase his ass like a pathetic loser.

I mean at 39% when the heroine pushes him away he doesn't do anything to stop her. He didn't even care! His excuse was "He didn’t do crazy-chick drama. Or play mind games. A waste of his

2 Stars

What can I even say? Hmm, is there such thing as too much sex? No? No. But it sure got old pretty quickly for me. It didn't help that Paige and Alex both acted like jerks too. Not to mention the crazy back and forth between them with regards to their relationship/non-relationship was annoying. And the repetitiveness of everything. And the eye-roll inducing ending.

**Thanks for the buddy read Ami and Jeanne. Proud to say I made it till the end! Didn't back out halfway, didn't DNF. Woohoo!*
2.5 (closer to 2 stars, but I felt bad for some reason, so here's my 3 stars!)

I don't know is this author is pretty new or not, but that's kind of how I felt while I was reading this book. The idea wasn't bad, the plot was interesting and the characters could have been great. But they weren't...
I didn't feel any chemistry between the two, but that's not even a problem here. They felt pretty plastic, I couldn't see them as real. Despite them having problems, they (both of them) were pretty flat.

I was kind of disappointed in this book, which made me sad because I love the author. The love scenes were great. I didn't have too much of an issue with those. My problem was that there was way too much going on. I understand romance novels need a secondary plot sometimes, but this one had way too many. There was her issues with her family, his stuff with his family, her best friend's marital problems and pregnancy.....there was just so much. And while I don't mind an indecisive heroine who can ...more

I really enjoyed Stealing Home. I loved Paige and Alex’s first meeting and Paige's feisty, sarcastic personality, although I did find her very frustrating at times. She had relationship issues stemming from her parent’s marriage that resulted in her having major trouble with committing. The constant pushing and pulling she did with Alex was very frustrating!! I wanted to shake some sense into her! She kept pushing away a man, who, in my opinion, was pretty damn perfect.

And let's talk about that

I really liked this book!
I made the mistake of reading a few reviews before I started reading and those reviews weren't good and had me worried a bit. Just a bit as they weren't from trusted fellow-readers and from readers I don't hve much books in common with. And it turns out I needn't worry at all as Karla Doyle once again delivered a sexy and emotional read with characters that didn't take the easy, cheesy route and had to work hard for their HEA while making me work for it just as hard.
Didn't hate it but I didn't love it either.

I have loved previous Karla Doyle books and this book's blurb sounded like something right up my alley. But there was just something missing for me.

Paige doesn't do commitment. She's a serial monogamist but when things in her relationships begin to get truly serious she cuts and runs. She watched her mother cheating on her father growing up so she is naturally a little hesitant to settle down, afraid she will repeat the same mistakes her mother made. B

For about the first quarter of the book, I wanted to throw it across the room - I didn’t. Don’t want to break my iPad. The heroine was constantly cycling between OMG lust/I’m too messed up for him. The hero cycled between OMG lust/she’s crazy. Make up your effin minds! I’m glad I stuck with it though, because the story got a lot better. The hero is a complex guy - maybe a little too perfect (geesh. He’s good at everything). The heroine is constantly snarky and sarcastic. Eventually both characte ...more
