    Living paycheck to paycheck in Paris, American book translator Chloe Underwood would give anything for some excitement and passion - even a little danger.

    If you could sum up Black Ice in three words, what would they be?

    Curiosity killed the?


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sebastion of course. He just couldn't help himself to do the right thing. He so wanted to remain a bad guy but just really wasn't that person.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed at times that should probably have not been funny.


    Any additional comments?

    The run from the bad guys part went on a little longer than I had patience for but I never was one for the chase scenes or on the run scenes in movies. Not unless there is more substance between the characters who are on the run with more moments of interest within them.

    Eight months. That's how long it's been since Eliza last saw Gage, and they both feel as if they don't deserve one another's forgiveness. He screwed up. She walked away without looking back. They'll try and make up all the time they've lost with one another, that is, until they're facing the choices of either going their separate ways, or hanging on and fighting for dear life. The fights will be endless. The heartache will be real. The demons will return, and they won't back down without a fight.

    Story

    Really, please write it as one book or wrap up the first one with a hint of wanting the next but don't end it in the middle of the story. That's just wrong and disrespectful of readers. The story is average. Kept me engaged but drug on with same stuff over and over but liked the characters enough to stay involved in the book as fast forward through it in places. Narration was great.

    When Cade Walker and Merrick Sullivan find Elle hiding in the cabinet of a gun store, they know they can't just walk away from the fragile woman with no memory of who she is or who tried to kill her. Merrick is training for the title shot in the heavyweight division as a mixed martial artist and can't afford distractions, but neither can he turn his back on the woman who tugs at his heartstrings.

    The book really has little substance and it is another cliff hanger. Ahhh. When will author's ever consider that they can write a complete book and people will buy it? This isn't even close to the quality writing of Maya Banks from a year ago. Not sure what has happened with her writing but she used to be one of my favorites.

    Colton stole my heart. He wasn't supposed to, and I sure as hell didn't want him to, but he crashed into my life, ignited feelings within me that I thought had died forever, and fueled a passion that I never knew could exist. Rylee fell out of that damn storage closet and into my life. Now I don't think I'll ever be the same. She's seen glimpses of the darkness within me, and yet she's still here. Still fighting for me. She is without a doubt the saint and I am most definitely the sinner.

    Same things over and over again. How much can a couple fight? It was hard to get into the characters for so many reasons. What's up with the point of view change in the middle for a brief moment and then never again. Also, can't a writer just write full book in one instead of one story in 3 books?

    The story is a little slow as it is. When you put that to a very slow speaker you will have no trouble falling asleep. I found myself increasing the speed on the play but then it sounds funny. It's hard to keep in involved with the story.

    When Lady Johanna learned that she was a widow, she vowed she would never marry again. Only sixteen, already she possessed a strength of will that impressed all who looked past her golden-haired beauty. Yet when King John demanded that she remarry - and selected a bridegroom for her - it seemed she must acquiesce, until her beloved foster brother suggested she wed his friend, the handsome Scottish warrior Gabriel MacBain.

    It wouldn't be Christmas in Keeneston without a party! Everyone's invited, even Santa.… Kenna's court docket is full, Dani's hiding from her in-laws, Paige and Annie are about to burst from pregnancy, and Marshall is breaking up fights at the PTA Christmas concert. The sweet potato casserole is made, the ham and biscuits are on the table, and men are losing their shirts - and not because of bets placed with the Rose Sisters! All the while, the entire town is wondering one thing: Who is the Secret Santa that showed up with special gifts for everyone?

    I've read most of the stories so far in this series, or so I had thought. I had no idea who most of these people were in this story and I can't believe anyone would find it interesting and fun to drag on through a boring series of women in labor. Waste of time and a credit. Most certainly.

    I think that there should definitely be something in the marketing that lets you know that a book is written in multiple parts and you have to buy each one individually. This trend is ridiculous. I feel completely ripped off because now I either do not listen to the whole story or pay 3 times as much as I thought because I now know it is in 3 parts - or I guess it could be more and they just haven't published all of the parts. Really?

    Meeting Jett was like lightning. Dangerous. Better left untouched. And better forgotten. But lightning always strikes twice. Brooke Stewart, a realtor in New York, doesn't do relationships. When she's sent to a remote estate to finalize a real estate deal, she discovers her new boss is none other than the guy she left naked in bed. Sexy, dangerously handsome, and arrogant Jett Mayfield attracts trouble, and women, like a lightning rod. But the night he meets Brooke he gets more than he bargained for.

    I am really tired of publishing companies and authors writing a novel and splitting it into two or three parts to sell for more $. Just charge more for it to begin with and provide the whole story. Really people! I feel ripped off. It just ends with the biggest cliff hanger. Seems like Fifty Shades started this trend it is getting worse all the time.
