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.

Review: Heart of Obsidian by Nalini Singh

May Contain Spoilers

The pressure is on to catch up with the series before Silver Silence is released in June.  I think I’m looking at a July read date with the way things are going.  Anyway, I was a little disappointed that the focus was almost entirely on Kaleb and Sahara, with the supporting cast of changelings and Psy only making brief appearances.  This is almost entirely a Psy book, and they aren’t my favorite race in this world. The Psy civil war does get wrapped up, though, and there is a lot of intense action to keep the pages turning.

Review: Intercepting the Chef by Rachel Goodman

May Contain Spoilers

I’m not sure what attracted me to this title.  I am not  particularly attracted to stories with chefs, but I do like professional athletes.  So I thought what the heck, I’ll give it a try.  I wasn’t completely hooked at first, but as I got to know Gwen and Logan, I really started to enjoy this story.

Gwen has worked hard perfecting the menu at her famous chef boyfriend’s restaurant.  She wants him to enjoy every success, even while he’s busy with other pursuits to enhance his brand.  When the restaurant wins a prestigious award, Gwen doesn’t receive the thanks she anticipated.  Instead, her douchebag of a boyfriend fires her, throws her onto the street, and tries to tarnish her reputation as an up and coming chef.
