I love the picture chosen for this book but similar to book one in the series, this one had zero passion and the love story developed literally over two dates. Don’t see that happening in real life so it was hard for me to totally get into a story where the main characters were SOOOO in love so quickly. Weak action sprinkled here and there and good narration. Not sure if I can recommend it as great work of action or romance, but it was entertaining enough.
not great but good story, although a bit simple and slow for my taste. Men treat women as their "property" and then then Joanna Wylde continues to justify that by saying it's okay because all the other "old ladies" seem to be ok with it and especially since they do not look so slutty and in fact dress even decently. So I should be okay with it too. Stupid explanation if you ask me but then what do I know? To top this off, the bad ass "horse" whom yes, is hung like a horse as well, with all his male hotness and oozing sexuality is the one who keeps wanting to claim HER.....hmmmmm....veeeeery believable!!! Especially since Marie's character was not even that well known to him by the time he had picked out her vest. She was meek, quite, submissive behaving all to that point except when she actually grows a back bone for about 10 seconds to say she will not be his property. Oh true, but then about 5 seconds later she was okay with that notion. scratch the backbone comment because it doesn't count. She didn't have one.
This book was entertaining enough but I'll have to say it did not have me glued to it as some others have done in the past. I'll keep searching and maybe I'll find a motorcycle book that actually keeps my interest the entire time and is a page turner.
Characters keep repeating the other person's name in "discussions". Tyra kept saying Tack...Tack....Tack... All because she wanted to say something that Tack did not stop to listen to. He just continued to talk over her every time. Same with all other books by this author. Gets frustrating and repetitive. She keeps portraying women that are weak and can not voice their opinions without sounding pathetic. Men call their women babe almost from the first second of meeting them and then push their women to hurry up and get serious about them and all their glorious hotness, chick magnet magnificence. Blah blah blah.... I love romance but these books are getting so repetitive I wonder why I spent the money to get frustrated because the stories are not that original and characters all act as the ones in other books by KA. So I'll say save your money and get something you can not predict the storyline that does't frustrate you.
when I read some of the reviews I decided to invest in this book and doing so has left me dissatisfied. If anyone had told me the hero goes from a complete rake to a besotted man in love with his wife in 3 weeks, I would have said not likely to pull this off so easily and guess what? It did not. Sounds foolish to say this but some writers are able to do that beautifully but this book did not make that transition smoothly. The storyline was simple and suggested that jealousy alone lead to the hero's transition from looking at the heroine as a child to his sexy wife. I don't know but this book was not my cup of tea.
The story was so similar that I forgot this was a completely different book. Almost the exact storyline except set in a new setting. The similarities were to the point where when the heroine asked the hero "you own a gun?" I thought of course he does. He took you shooting, didn't he? And then as the story continued I realized that this was a new book. I think if you have not read book one you will absolutely LOVE book two and if you have, ........then this story will disappoint you greatly.
KA also tends to give her characters lots of nicknames, terms of endearment (even early on in the book) and the men are all tall, muscular and tattooed and have a raspy voice and the women are weak personalities that become strong after ending up at their destinations. Oh yes and let's not forget they also have no good friends but end up making some extremely loyal ones at the town they settle in. There is a killer and of course the hero owns a gun or two.
OK. I just summed up the style. This does not mean the books are bad just that the second lacked originality.
I LOVED this book. Such a surprise to find it. I never considered reading erotica because I was worried the storyline would be too torturous. This should have been under contemporary romance and not erotica. The first sex scene happened halfway through the book, but don't get me wrong, you won't miss it because the story is so engaging.
What I thought as I read the book was WOW. This story is so full of action (things happening constantly) that it seemed like it actually happened because none can come up with such a complicated storyline. None of it was forced and the very well developed characters were so real you can't help but to love them all. Even the "bad guys" were people you felt for. AaaaaaaMA*****ZING. Trust me when I say you will not go wrong with this book if you like contemporary romance. Sex is sprinkled in there but by no means overpowering the story. Just the right amount. Now my only question is why can we not find real guys like this? Oh well. We can all dream at least :)
This was actually a good story and a definitely 4 star worthy effort on Nadine Millard's part, but again as so many romance novels do, the story ran flat soon after. There were moments where the story was more entertaining and moments where it dragged on. Overall entertaining and if you are looking for a historical romance and are okay with a not very challenging love story but one where the issues get solved easily and without much fuss then this could be a possibility for you.
It's confusing when the books are not listed in a series as they are supposed to be. Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake is the first in this series. The third book is Eleven Scandals to Start to Win a Duke's Heart and the fourth is being released soon but is actually marked as the fourth book under another series. They are all connected books. VERY strange.
This book was cute but not quite as cute as the first. The personalities introduced are all super likable but although the book was entertaining, I guess the easiest way for me to explain it is by saying I was not glued to it. The story was just not as grabbing. Finally the one to the last chapter the story upped it's excitement factor and ended on a great note. So this will not be a loss of time or point if you read it, of course, it's just good knowing you will not be reading a five star story and then you may like it more :) wen your expectations are lower.
What a delicious way to get revenge. I won't bore you with a repeat of what has been said already about the storyline by other reviewers but I thought his revenge was short lived. I actually found the entire memory loss and Drake taking advantage of it all very humorous except that it did not go very far and the book quickly turned into serious and heavy. I was not glued to the book but I found it to be entertaining and I enjoyed reading it but it lacked that draw for me.
I absolutely LOVED this book. The first book in the series is still my favorite but this book was wonderful. The story was engaging, characters well developed, and of course a handsome hero with a past he needed to work through. I liked this book so much so that I finished it all in one day. I could NOT stop. You won't either if you give it a chance.
yes still too much time is spent talking about what is going on in the main character's head but beyond that the book was excellent. I loved the story and found myself drawn to the book. The mistaken identity and conversations leading to her getting deflowered by the lord were hilarious. One was talking about food while the other thought the conversations were about sex and how she could satisfy his "every need". Clever story and sweet ending.
