Review: A Di Sione for Greek’s Pleasure by Kate Hewitt

May Contain Spoilers

I thought this was going to be a winner until about halfway through, when the heroine and hero actually started spending time together. As they revealed their tragic pasts to each other, I found that I just didn’t care about either one of them. Angelos was especially hard to sympathize with; he’s a grumpy, stern, unapproachable man who has basically ignored his young grieving daughter for 7 years, choosing to write letters to her instead of speaking to her because he’s not worthy of her love. Instead, he hides away from her, leaving her on his private island paradise while he works around the globe, keeping busy so he doesn’t have time to think about her, his deceased wife, or the fire destroyed his life. I just wasn’t feeling it.

Mini-Reviews: The Billionaire’s Legacy 1 – 2

 

May Contain Spoilers

I wanted to read this Harlequin series because several of my favorite authors contributed a volume.  Here are my thoughts on the first tow volumes of The Billionaire’s Legacy.

Book 1 – Di Sione’s Innocent Conquest by Carol Marinelli

I feel that this author’s writing style is very dry and that keeps the protagonists at arms length. I never really got to know their inner thoughts and feelings, and instead of feeling the characters’ emotions, I was told what they are. I didn’t care for that. I also thought Matteo was a selfish, spoiled rich kid who was using his parents’ failures as an excuse for his bad behavior. I did enjoy the racing bits, and wish there had been more of that.

Review: Rodeo Father by Mary Sullivan

May Contain Spoilers

I had a few problems with Rodeo Father, but most of them stemmed from the supporting cast.  Rachel, pregnant and struggling to provide for her family, was recently widowed.  Her husband, a reckless man with little skill keeping a roof over his growing family, died in a motorcycle accident.  With few options open to her, Rachel was forced to move in with her mother, a woman with hardly a nurturing bone in her body.  When a stranger purchases the house that Rachel has been saving every penny for the down payment, it doesn’t seem that life can get any more unfair.  Travis, a man who has no intentions of setting down roots anywhere, purchased the house for his sister and her young sons.

Review: Bride by Royal Decree by Caitlin Crews

May Contain Spoilers

Review by PooPenny

I really wish I could rate this 3.5 stars.

Anyways, to the meat of this. I would have rated 4 stars but I just did NOT like Reza or Maggy all that much. First off, Reza is trying to hard to be a cold, calculating, uncaring king because he does not want to be his father. Ok, I get that. You want to be better, but that doesn’t mean you get to be a fucking prick.

Review: The Amish Midwife by Patricia Davids @HarlequinBooks

 

May Contain Spoilers

I loved this book!  It’s emotional, with delightful bursts of humor, and a slow building romance.  Joseph is a gruff dairy farmer, more content dealing with his goats than talking to the humans in his Amish community.  Anne is a mid-wife, irritated with the grumpy farmer next door and his mischievous goats, which keep sneaking into her garden and eating her produce.  Both of them are suffering from tragedies in their past, and neither is will to risk heartache again.
