    Evanovich fans rejoice! Stephanie Plum is back in town, along with her sidekick Lula, her Grandma Mazur, and an ever-widening cast of freaks, criminals, deranged felons, and lunatics looking for love. And just when Stephanie thinks her life can't get any more complicated, in walks the mysterious Diesel. A man who seems to show up at the most inconvenient moments.

    JoAnn Marcon says: "Classic Stephanie Plum"
    "Plum Silly, Plum Fun"
    Overall

    If you are looking for a great mystery or a serious read, this book is not for you. However, if you want something to make you laugh and don't mind hearing some truly silly stuff, you will love this and the other Stephanie Plum novels. I listen in my car going back and forth to work, and Janet Evanovich and Lorelei King are great stress relievers!

    The follow-up to the runaway bestsellers On Dublin Street and Down London Road. Despite her outgoing demeanor, Olivia is painfully insecure around the opposite sex - usually, she can't get up the nerve to approach guys she's interested in. But moving to Edinburgh has given her a new start, and, after she develops a crush on a sexy postgrad, she decides it's time to push past her fears and go after what she wants. Nate Sawyer is a gorgeous player who never commits, but to his close friends, he's as loyal as they come.

    Gideon calls me his angel, but he's the miracle in my life. My gorgeous, wounded warrior, so determined to slay my demons while refusing to face his own. The vows we'd exchanged should have bound us tighter than blood and flesh. Instead they opened old wounds, exposed pain and insecurities, and lured bitter enemies out of the shadows. I felt him slipping from my grasp, my greatest fears becoming my reality, my love tested in ways I wasn't sure I was strong enough to bear.

    What disappointed you about Captivated by You?

    After waiting years for a conclusion to a good series, this book is nothing more than a filler. Is Sylvia Day struggling with an ending or is she just trying to get more money out of us?


    What could Sylvia Day have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Give us some answers and a good conclusion.


    Any additional comments?

    How long will we have to wait now to find out what happens? Will the next book be worth anything? Not happy!

    Jocelyn Butler has been hiding from her past for years. But all her secrets are about to be laid bare.... Four years ago, Jocelyn left her tragic past behind in the States and started over in Scotland, burying her grief, ignoring her demons, and forging ahead without attachments. Her solitary life is working well - until she moves into a new apartment on Dublin Street where she meets a man who shakes her carefully guarded world to its core.

    No matter how hard Haddie tries to forget about him, Becks relentlessly tries to prove that she should start living for today. But she is determined to avoid romantic commitment, and she can always use her ex-boyfriend's reappearance to help snuff out the slow burn within her that Becks has sparked. Or will fate force her to realize that this kind of connection doesn’t come along very often and a chance at love is worth the risk?

    Story

    There are so many romance novels today; many like this one containing lots of sexuality. Although Ms. Bromberg, like so many others, has also dealt with child and sexual abuse in her prior books, Slow Burn stands alone for me in dealing with a topic that touches a great many more lives.

    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.

    Gideon Cross: As beautiful and flawless on the outside as he was damaged and tormented on the inside. He was a bright, scorching flame that singed me with the darkest of pleasures. I couldn’t stay away. I didn’t want to. He was my addiction…my every desire…mine. My past was as violent as his, and I was just as broken. We’d never work. It was too hard, too painful…except when it was perfect. Those moments when the driving hunger and desperate love were the most exquisite insanity. We were bound by our need. And our passion would take us beyond our limits to the sweetest, sharpest edge of obsession.…

    Would you listen to Reflected in You again? Why?

    I would definitely listen to this book again and am finding it very difficult to understand the complaints of some other reviewers. Just about all the questions left after Bared to You were answered and the story development was extremely well done. While the first book bothered me a bit by sounding somewhat of a knock off of the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy, Reflected in You distinguished itself as a separate entity and was very well written. Can't wait until the last book of the series is released in December.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I was most happy that while the steamy obsession continues, this book took the relationship between Eva and Gideon far beyond just sex. I loved that healing has been taken to a new level for both damaged lives.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The very last scenes when questions were answered was my favorite part.


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

    As someone who has experienced the depth of great love personally, there were some tears.

    Nicole Krauss' first novel, Man Walks Into a Room, was shortlisted for the Los Angeles Times Book Award and her short fiction has been collected in Best American Short Stories. Now The History of Love proves Krauss is among our finest and freshest literary voices.

    The characters are complex, the story line is sometimes difficult to follow, and the change of voices takes getting used to, but it's all well worth the effort. I laughed, I cried, and I was deeply moved!

    Personal vendettas, hidden treasure, and a monkey named Carl will send bounty hunter Stephanie Plum on her most explosive adventure yet. Dom Rizzi robbed a bank, stashed the money, and did the time. His family couldn't be more proud. He always was the smart one. Joe Morelli, Dom Rizzi, and Dom's sister, Loretta, are cousins. Morelli is a cop, Rizzi robs banks, and Loretta is a single mother waiting tables at the firehouse. The all-American family.

    I enjoy the Stephanie Plum books very much, because after reading something "heavier" I often need to laugh for a change of pace.

    Abounding in Southern charm, Miss Julia Paints the Town finds the plucky North Carolinian pushed to the limit by a daunting heap of difficulties. Already trying to help three friends find their missing husbands, Miss Julia also must concoct a scheme to chase a slick New Jersey developer away from Abbotsville. But perhaps she's bitten off a bit more than she can chew.
