Review: Love Me Again by Jaci Burton

May Contain Spoilers

I admit I borrowed this book because of the dog on the cover.  I was hoping it would like some of the Jill Shalvis titles I have enjoyed, with a lot of interaction with the dog, and how sad is that.  At this particular point in time, I am more interested in the relationships between the animals and people than the characters themselves.  This must be a side-effect of taking care of Poppy since her surgery.

Review: Train Wreck by Elisa Faber

May Contain Spoilers

I wanted to read Train Wreck because it sounded cute.  I was hoping for a light, funny read, and it did deliver, with mixed results. The premise of the story is that Pepper is a klutz, and that everything she touches quickly goes wrong. This was amusing at first, but it quickly became tiring. If Pepper was consistently that clumsy and constantly injuring herself, I don’t see how she could have successfully managed to make it to her mid-twenties without permanently damaging herself. Really. She’s that much of a clod. Tripping. Falling. Almost getting hit by cars. Cutting herself on broken glass. Etc., etc., etc. Sigh. Read more

Review: The Girl with the Make-Believe Husband by Julia Quinn

Review by Poo Penny

May Contain Spoilers

Oh Julia Quinn. I am so sorry. I really wanted to love this. I really tried to. I even waited a few days in hopes that it would grow on me while I thought about it, but instead, I just forgot about it.

This book was not nearly as good as Because of Miss Bridgerton. There was a little wit, and a little humor, but mostly I was embarrassed for Cecilia. It is slightly amusing that she digs herself deeper and deeper into a hole of lies, but at some point, I stopped sympathizing with her. Because she had so many chances to, oh I dunno, tell Edward the truth? And Edward at least seems to be a good sport for most of it. He is grumpy once in a while, as losing your memory would make you I assume.

Review: The Sheikh’s Bought Wife by Sharon Kendrick

May Contain Spoilers

I did not get along with this book.  I thought the hero, Zayed, was a complete and utter douche.  He learns that in order to inherit land for his kingdom, he needs to marry.  He doesn’t want to marry because he’s too busy sleeping around, enjoying the pleasures of women to settle for just one.  So he figures that if he marries for six months, and then has the marriage annulled, he will have fulfilled his obligations and can get back to the business of sowing his wild oats.
