Novella Review: Crazy Stupid Sex by Maisey Yates

 

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

When I first started reading Crazy Stupid Sex, I was a bit apprehensive.  The beginning didn’t instill much confidence, and I felt I have read the same bar pickup scene five times already this year.  Once the action shifted  to an office setting, however, I was all over this read.  It’s sexy, fast-paced, and the hero redeemed himself enough for me to ignore the fact that he had been behaving like a spoiled sloth for the past 10 years, hopping for one hookup to the next, with no sense of connection or commitment at all.  I usually hate guys like that, but Maisey Yates does a good job ripping away his too-cool for school veneer, and I actually warmed up to Caleb by the end of the story.

Novella Review: Cursed by Cupid by Wendy Sparrow

 

 

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

What a cute story!  I loved both Tilly and Byrant.  Tilly unwisely ignored the dire predictions in a chain letter, and her love life has been cursed ever since.  If there’s a good looking, single guy in the area, she will, without a doubt, turn into a klutz and completely humiliate herself in front of him.  Flying milkshakes, tripping into doors, landing in a plate of shrimp linguine – each scenario is embarrassingly possible, and has domed her to a life of being depressingly single.

Novella Review: Mr Virile and the Girl Next Door by Gwen Hayes

Mr. Virile and the Girl Next Door (Entangled Indulgence)

Contain Spoilers

Review:

Mr Virile and the Girl Next Door is a fun read.  While I found the set up for the story weak and not very believable, I did enjoy the couple and the chemistry they created.  I have a hard time believing that their agents would put their livelihoods in danger by setting them up, though.  I would hope that both Holly and Dane would have more professional agents representing them!

Novella Review: Languish by Alyxandra Harvey

Languish: A Haunting Violet novella

Contain Spoilers

Review:

I really enjoy Alyxandra Harvey’s writing style, so when I saw Languish available for check out at the library, I didn’t hesitate to click the Borrow button.  This is a fast, entertaining read that follows Violet on her quest to regain her ability to see ghosts.  After all of the harrowing action in Haunting Violet,  her third eye has remained stubbornly blind, and she’s getting tired of waiting for it to open again.  Even when Lord Jasper advises patience, and to not force her powers to work again, she still has to try to take charge of her wayward ghost-seeing skills, opening herself up to danger and near disaster.

Novella Review: One Night in Santiago by Audra North

One Night in Santiago (Entangled Flaunt)

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

I picked up One Night in Santiago for two reasons.  First, I enjoyed Audra North’s Falling for the CEO.  A lot.  Second, I have been reading a string of YA dystopian novels, and I needed a break.  Something light.  Something complete in one sitting.  Something with a happy I know without a doubt things are going to be awesome ending, because the last few books I read left me uncertain of the final outcome for the protagonists.

Novella Review: Revenge of a Chalet Girl by Lorraine Wilson

Revenge of a Chalet Girl: HarperImpulse Contemporary Romance Novella

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

I was a bit disappointed with Revenge of a Chalet Girl.  I really enjoyed the story until Josh’s fiancée arrives in town, and then I was so irritated with him for letting her take advantage of him.  Amy’s behavior also borders on  stalkerish, and some of her decisions made me cringe.

Novella Review: Falling for the CEO by Audra North

Falling for the CEO (Entangled Flaunt)

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

Falling for the CEO is a great Christmas read!  It’s angsty and sizzles with tension – this was a finish in one sitting book.  Things got a little shaky near the end, but it has such a feel-good ending that I can’t give it more than a small downward bump for Andrew’s bizarre behavior after he and Meredith sleep together for the first time.  He practically flies out of bed and out of Meredith’s apartment with hardly a word, leaving her devastated.  Sure he had only her best interests at heart, but dude!  Make sure that the woman you care for, and that you know has serious trust issues, understands that you aren’t dropping her like a hot potato!
