Review: Rookie Move by Sarina Bowen

May Contain Spoilers


I love second chance romances, and I haven’t read many hockey books, so I grabbed this when I saw it at the library. I liked it enough to continue the series, but I thought the romance between Leo and Georgia was a little flat. There’s not much conflict between them that a tumble into bed won’t fix, and they pretty much pick up where they left off back in high school. Leo has never stopped loving her, and Georgia, after being the victim of a violent attack, dumps Leo right after graduation so they can get on with their lives. She feels that she is dragging him down, and that he will be better off without her.

Review: Weddings, Crushes, and Other Dramas by Emily McKay

May Contain Spoilers

I enjoyed How Willa Got Her Groove Back, so I was looking forward to Weddings, Crushes, and Other Dramas.  This didn’t work as well for me, and I didn’t find it as engaging as the first book.  It was clicking right along until right after the wedding, and then it fell apart for me.

Review: The Guardian’s Virgin Ward by Caitlin Crews

 

May Contain Spoilers

Good God!  I love Caitlin Crews’ writing.  I have said that numerous times. But some of her books just don’t work for me.  This one.  Ugh.  I loved the beginning.  Liliana is bold and feisty, and she pushes back when Izar tries to control her.  But then.  Not so much.  She becomes a doormat when he whisks her away to Saint Moritz after seducing her and deciding that he will marry her.  Just.  Yuck!  He’s her guardian, and while she’s trapped in the villa, all I could think of was – Stockholm Syndrome.  Yuck!  I wasn’t convinced in any way that their love was genuine, or that it would last.  Because.  YUCK!

I have heard good things about Beverly Jenkins’ books, so when the opportunity arose to be part of the blog tour for Breathless, I jumped at the chance.  I thought it would be fun to ask Poo Penny to read and review the book, too, so we could give you two opinions of the title.  Poo was not a fan; this was not her cup of tea. I had a mixed, but overall, positive reading experience.  Check out our reviews and then enter for a chance to win a copy of Breathless for yourself!

Poo Penny’s Review:

All right, I am sorry. I really tried. I wanted to really like this one. But, it had a few things already going against it that I don’t typically like in my romances. First, its a western, and second, its a western. Alright, so I guess that didn’t sink in when my Aunt told me it was a western, all I heard was it was Avon Books, Dare’s publisher, and I was like, Tessa Dare! I love her.
