Nope nope nope. Where is the formatting???? 3% in and the author glosses over how the hero and heroine meet, sex it up and gets knocked up. LDNF at 3%
Nope nope nope. Where is the formatting???? 3% in and the author glosses over how the hero and heroine meet, sex it up and gets knocked up. Like only a paragraph or two dedicated to a very important part of the story? No thank you. The writing is not good. Example- The hero felt a stirring in his groins. Plural. G R O I N S. And what's up with all the explanation points!! ...more
I read book 6 first and because I enjoyed it sooooo much, I decided to go back and read books 1-5. Book 1 I DNFd...twice. Simone annoyed me. Roman wasI read book 6 first and because I enjoyed it sooooo much, I decided to go back and read books 1-5. Book 1 I DNFd...twice. Simone annoyed me. Roman was meh. I loved book 2. I DNFd book 3. And I thought this book #4 was just okay. Ended up skimming most of it. It's weird how this series isn't really working for me. I normally LOVE Jones' series and the fact that I loved book 6 and don't like the earlier books is so confusing.
Anyway, I think I'm just gonna stop here with this series and if anymore books for this series are published later then I'll read those....more
I really enjoyed the first book in this series, Haven, so I was looking forward to reading Sanctuary. While I enjoyed the book and finished it in oneI really enjoyed the first book in this series, Haven, so I was looking forward to reading Sanctuary. While I enjoyed the book and finished it in one sitting, something about Liz and Silas did not connect with me. I had a feeling that there was more to Silas that met the eye as his contact with Liz progressed and later in the book my hunch was confirmed. That wasn't why I couldn't connect with the couple. I wasn't feeling Liz. Maybe it was her personality. She kind of rubbed me the wrong way. It was hard for me to feel sorry for her even though she experienced a traumatic event. Maybe if we knew a bit more about her background that shed a light on the current Liz. Silas was okay. Sexy farm guy with a goatee. He was cool but again I couldn't connect. It was hard for me to see Silas and Liz as a couple. Maybe it's the dominatrix past. Liz is used to being in charge. I get that. But it was like she didn't let Silas do anything he wanted to do and when she did, it seemed cruel (referencing date in the Orchard). Anyways, I still like the series and can't wait for the next book. Hopefully the hero won't be Scott (Liz's coworker and friend) cause I don't know if that fool can be redeemed....more
The only reason why I'm giving this book 2 stars instead of 1 is because I managed to finish it. I hadn't read the previous books in the series but itThe only reason why I'm giving this book 2 stars instead of 1 is because I managed to finish it. I hadn't read the previous books in the series but it wasn't hard to follow the plot. Apparently the heroine, Valentina, went through a traumatic issue 10 years ago and recently with a heroine from a previous book (Yve, I think). Anyway, Valentina owns an art gallery. She's closed off to men due to her previous tragedy. Understandable. Then her 18 year old employee Trinity doesn't show up for work and Valentina freaks out because Trinity is a reliable employee. Again, understandable. Valentina goes to the police station to file a missing person report. She gets the run around because technically Trinity is an adult and she hasn't been missing long enough blah, blah, blah. Once Valentina mentions to the Detective the name of Trinity's boyfriend's homeboys, Valentina is told that Trinity is mixed up in some dangerous stuff. Turns out Trinity's boyfriend is a gangbanger. I didn't know people still used that term but I live in the suburbs so what do I know? And he works for the head gangbanger Rix. So Valentina, who is privileged and white, decides to go to the bad neighborhood where Derek lives to try and find Trinity. I'm still on board with the story. Where it starts losing me is when Valentina encounters Rix and is instantly attracted. She's shocked at how beautiful he is. (insert eye roll here). Then somewhere within a span of 24-48 hours, Rix claims that Valentina is his woman and she's all, okay. Sure.
This broad was raped 10 years ago. She has issues with aggressive men but is okay with letting a gangbanger boss her around and break into her house whenever the mood strikes? All because he's handsome and he makes her panties wet?? And remember, Valentina is a 32 YO privileged white woman. Rix is a black or at least bi-racial gang member. So what the f*ck is going on here? Also the Detective, Detective Hennessey (snort), has his sights set on Valentina so she's going on dates with him while secretly making out with Rix.
This book was dumb. Plain and simple. Nothing about it made sense. And of course there's a twist at the end about Rix that makes him more appealing as a boyfriend. Of course. *EYE ROLL*
Valentina was bland as f*ck. I have no idea what these two men saw in her other than a fragile white woman who needed rescuing and their protection.
Whatever. I want my 99 cents back. And my time.
And what does the book title even mean????????????????????????? ...more
In need of editing. The story is told from Nick's POV but there were many times where instead of "I" there was "his" or "Nick". If it's 1st person POVIn need of editing. The story is told from Nick's POV but there were many times where instead of "I" there was "his" or "Nick". If it's 1st person POV then stay in 1st person POV. I noticed it on the first page! Not good. I doubt I'll continue with this serial. Despite the errors the story didn't interest me enough to want to continue....more
