Le daría 4,5 estrellas
No me ha durado nada, es un libro que no debería gustarme, yo que soy tan estricta con las normas sociales, aquí parece que la mitad se las saltan a la torera, cosa con la que no estoy en desacuerdo siempre y cuando supongan impedimentos. En esta saga... no se les da ninguna importancia.
Pero me da igual, la forma de escribir me atrapa y me hipnotiza, me encantan las historias de esta mujer, son muy sencillas pero me emocionan.
Quizás esperaba una historia muy distinta, porqu

Имах малко по-големи очаквания от книгата,понеже втората много ми хареса. Прекалено много време отне на Виен да разбере, че обича Тристан и е подходяща за него. Непрекъснататите й съмнения и лошото й отношение към него ми дойдоха в повече. Давам оценка 5 най-вече заради Тристан, който в нито един момент не се отказа от любовта им. Края беше хубав, но ми липсваше епилог.

Casi un cuatro para un libro que se lee deprisa.
Buenos diálogos de los secundarios y ese puntito que en ocasiones ha hecho que el estómago se me encoja.
Me ha fallado una ambientación más precisa y palabras o expresiones demasiado actuales, pero no es nada que me quite el sueño ni me estropee la lectura.

¡3,5 ESTRELLAS!

La historia de Trystan Kane y Vienne La Rieux partía de una buena premisa. Ambos son personajes fuertes y divertidos que sabías que de sus choques saltarían chispas de pura química. En sí, la novela estaba bien, me estaba encantando hasta aproximadamente el final.

A mi gusto, la trama se resolvió precipitadamente cuando la autora podría haber dado más intriga y hubiese sido más creíble. Por otro lado, el "gran" secreto de Vienne resultó no ser tan "grande" como me lo esperaba. Se d

Book 3 in the Victorian Soap Opera Series

This book had a few things going for it, so I think I’ll start with those. First, it was funny. There were several witty scenes and snippets of dialogue that were really quite humorous. Sometimes it was funny in a silly, ridiculous way and other times it was funny in a witty, sarcastic way – but there was plenty of comedy in this b

A pesar de ser una de mis autoras favoritas, he notado que este libro bastante flojo comparado con el primero. No puedo decir nada del segundo, soy tan inutil que empece con el tercero. Reconozco que las hojas se pasam volando, debido a la sencillez de la narracion..Pero no ha sabido cautivarme como el primero, no ha tenido chispa. Y mientras mas leia mas ganas me entraban de querer leer el libro del segundo hermano, de verdad.

(3,25/5)

La trilogía del Club Saint Row me ha acompañado durante mucho tiempo y llevaba años esperando leer esta última y tercera parte. En este tercer libro tenemos la historia de Trystan Kane y Vienne La Rieux. Una historia de amor con idas y venidas, con un pasado oculto que hace daño y con amenazas de muerte.

Guerra de amor era una historia que me moría por conocer pues en los dos libros anteriores se mencionaba varias veces a Trystan y Vienne, siempre con cierta intriga. Además, es una lectu

I reviewed this book for Romance Reader At Heart website:

RRAH's THOUGHTS AND PONDERINGS:


One of my favorite romance set-ups are between an older woman and a younger man. Not surprising, mind you, because I'm married to a much younger man, so I had great expectations in regards to this story; and while I liked the older woman/younger man premise, I had a very hard time with the chemistry between these two.

From the start of this story, it is assumed that I knew, and was familiar with, their past

Stars 3/4 (Kate Pearce, Maureen Driscoll, Elisa Braden)

Hey fellow readers I don’t summarize the books (as there are always great full summaries written that I read myself).

I only give it my personal, general, summary of 5 stars to 1 star.

3 stars: This book is worth a read but didn’t really have me excited about interacting with the book where I could not put it down. It lacks the excitement and well roundness of my personal markers for a great read throughout the book.

One thing annoyed me so much. The timeline was such a screwed up! I like to know how old they are, and this book confused me to no end. It changed everytime like Ms. Smith couldn't even decide or probably just simply didn't remember the timeline. I faintly remember in the first book, Rose was on her early twenties. Maybe 21 or 23. And the age difference between her and Grey was about ten years. So, that made Grey at most 33. Bronte was on her first season if I'm not wrong, she was in her 18th? I ...more

Tristan is the third son, as he says, not the heir or the spare...not particularly attractive (nose is too big), and made his fortune in trade. Vienne LaRieux, is the older woman, who Tristan refers to as "the virago, the viper, the vicious vixen", after she ripped his heart out when he was little more than a boy. Now, a shrewd businesswoman, she is setting out to build a shopping emporium. Tristan, seeking to finally prove himself to Vienne, has managed to gain a 50 percent share in this endeav ...more

I loved Trystan's character because it's always wonderful when a hero knows instinctively that he loves his woman and will do whatever he can to convince her that they belong together--even if it means to retreat from her for a while. However, I thought Vienne was as stubborn and thickheaded as an ox. I have no tolerance for a heroine who refuses to recognize the devoted love that's staring her in the face while feeling a wonderful 'rightness' whenever she's with him. This sort of couple is coun ...more

Me ha gustado mucho esta historia del 3ª hermano Kane.
Ha estado al nivel del 1º libro: época, romance, dudas, bailes de cortejo... ha conseguido sacarme más de un suspiro.

Good story with an older couple which I tend to like. Vienne was a strong woman with a good business mind. Also set in the Victorian era which is always fun.

A quick, light read. Vienne's insistence that she knew what was best got old after awhile, but I enjoyed the story overall. ...more
