Daniel | 1536 comments In for this


Diana Stormblessed (dashichka) | 3904 comments Any one else reading this? I'm going to start soon but if it's just me I'll push it to later. On the official schedule it says it's for the 15th.


Timelord Iain | 13571 comments I will be... I think others will too... my schedule is starting to slow down... so I'm almost caught up... except I keep adding romance novels now...


Anni | 5013 comments I will be there too :) But I need to finish the second book first 😅 I was distracted by other books, I hope that I will be done this weekend :)


Diana Stormblessed (dashichka) | 3904 comments Great! I plan on starting this one this weekend. I have another book to finish first, but this one looks like it'll be a quick read :-)


Daniel | 1536 comments I will be in as well. Happy Reading


Daniel | 1536 comments Well I am not sure if I am more interested in people’s ongoing commentaries during their reads....

Or I cannot wait for others to finish to get their reactions. I know lain is rereading. End of book spoiler(view spoiler)


Timelord Iain | 13571 comments They have 2 settings... love/betrayal... I started my re-read last night, and am approaching the end already... this is one I remember quite vividly because of what I mentioned before about the Reset Button... (view spoiler)

The humor in this was great, actually, after the trainwreck over in the Naughty Book Club, re-reading Seduction & Snacks...

Sha | 1520 comments "Love" my ass. That ship drives me up the wall. I have grown to like Max, but every time Farrell comes on screen... //strangles the air with bare hands

Frankly, I always thought that the plot arc of the St. Mary's ship only got in the way of the antics of the cast. The latter is far more interesting.


Timelord Iain | 13571 comments Yea... I know we all don't really care for the Max/Farrell "romance"... but those are the emotions they fluctuate between... or think they do, anyway... (view spoiler)

If Max/Farrell wasn't a thing to cause drama, the books would need 50% more material... they take up so much page-space...


Diana Stormblessed (dashichka) | 3904 comments That's just it. Their drama feels like book filler. It's so over the top it's eye rolly. I'm at 42% and while I love ancient Greek history and myth, I'm bored. I feel like the first book was great because of it's novelty but after that you know what to expect so there's nothing really new. I know you rereaders said it gets better in book 4, so I'm looking forward to that.


Timelord Iain | 13571 comments Book 4 doesn't have time for a lot of the Max/Farrell drama, I don't think (view spoiler)

You know I'm not opening that spoiler right?


Timelord Iain | 13571 comments I don't think it's too much of a spoiler to open it once you finish this book... I mean, it just reveals a little about what the last paragraph of the book was about... so you'll learn it in the first 5 pages of the 4th book anyway...

I'll wait till I finish the book. I'm still only half way through :-)

Sha | 1520 comments No Ian is right. I think the author used the ending as a excuse to fundamentally modify Farrell's character. There is no more relationship drama after this book, and whatever arguments they have get settled easily and without bs. That's why I continue to look upon the ending with favorites despite the huge amounts of Deus ex Machina.


Timelord Iain | 13571 comments I guess the excuse is (view spoiler)


Daniel | 1536 comments Iain wrote: "I guess the excuse is [spoilers removed]"

That is a great point!

That's explained away by her fucked up childhood tho... and the messed up coping methods she developed...

I've seen her get overly emotional about way less so it's still a weird reaction.


Diana Stormblessed (dashichka) | 3904 comments 75% (view spoiler)


Diana Stormblessed (dashichka) | 3904 comments Basically the end. (view spoiler)


Daniel | 1536 comments I was the only one who was down on this book, but I hear the rest get much better. It seems like Jodi used this book to reset Max and Leon. Still was a good read.

I'm with you on this book. It's very cliche. I'm willing to keep with the series though.


Daniel | 1536 comments Assuming the melodrama between Max and Leon vanishes, with the core elements of their character/sense of humor intact, then all will be good lol. I do enjoy her humor, and the historical spins can be pretty cool.

Yea... (view spoiler)

Anni | 5013 comments Does it bother anyone else that the third book is called The second chance, or is just me being strange? 😅


Daniel | 1536 comments Anni wrote: "Does it bother anyone else that the third book is called The second chance, or is just me being strange? 😅"

I think it refers to Jodi’s second chance to change her plot line lol.

It'll make sense by the end...

Daniel | 1536 comments Thanks

Yes. I get why it's called that but it kept confusing me every time I picked it up.


Daniel | 1536 comments Who is going to continue next month?

Thank you! Yes, I get that the title might fit the story and that 'second Chance' is a thing, but still...

Zaara just snorts alot in other threads... usually when talking about me being a non-evil person...

I edited in the drum noise when I realized I'd been punny...

Missed your chance to use the "change my mind" meme:



Altho, the general form of the meme is to claim something that always causes an argument like "pineapple is the best pizza topping" or something nobody would agree with...
