Absolutely. Jill Shalvis really shined in this one. Usually as a series goes along things start to go downhill but I really think this is the exception to the rule. Great story. Really well done.
As always she was great. Flawless performance.
It's hard to say without giving away important parts of the book and nobody likes spoilers but I will say yes, I was surprised when she left. I expected her to stay.
I absolutely loved the entire billionaire boys club series and couldn't wait to get my hands on this, book 5. Sadly it wasn't anywhere near as good as the others. The love scenes were way way way to drawn out and if I had to hear one more time how she liked to be ...... well, let's just say there is one thing she likes and she talks about it a lot. :P
If you've ever read 50 shades of grey you might recognize some of the story. I'm not saying it's an exact copy, not by any means but it is very inspired by it. In fact the first chapter of each book is nearly identical.
Marie Force is back with her third book in the Green Mountain series and this one doesn't disappoint. In fact, I would go as far as saying it is the best book in the series.
I wasn't really into Lucy all that much based on what we learned of her from the 2nd book in the series but my opinion of her quickly changed.
Don't waste your time or credit with this joke of a book. It's no more than what a normal author would include in a chapter or two in a real book. Instead this author breaks up a single story into three short stories.
This was my first Shayla Black book but it without a doubt won't be the last. Highly erotic and intense with a dash of a mystery on the side.
The story isn't as much about a single person falling in love as it is about an entire town and all the little twists and turns that happen in their lives.
I'm not quite sure why someone classified this book in the romance genre but whoever did it, couldn't have been more wrong. This wanderer guy the title hints that the story about is in maybe 1 hour of the 8 hour story. Yes he falls in love, but considering that's only a tiny part of the whole story, it make no sense why they even called the book that.
Right from the start this book rubbed me the wrong way. It went on and on about her "trailer trash" upbringing. It got down right offensive. Oh the horror of having to grow up with fake wood paneling.
But even if you could overlook that, you are still left with the over the top "man eater" type character who prefers one night stands to chocolate cake.
I tried really hard to listen. Normally I love Jill Shalvis books, especially the Lucky Harbor series but this one is so over the top it made my stomach turn. By chapter 3 I realized that my time is far to valuable and I like myself to much to continue to put myself through listening to one more minute of this offensive crap. And really I know that sounds harsh but it really was crap.
The book started off as a confusing mess. You couldn't help but get the sense that the publisher demanded a sequel and the author went through several periods of not knowing what to say to continue the first story along and in the end, you got a horrible start.
Things did eventually get better but half-way through you couldn't help but feel sorry for the person and their horrible relationship. The saddest part was, she didn't seem to know her relationship was built totally around sex. He didn't seem to care about her needs, her problems or sharing any part of his life and even if she worked a 100 hours that week, hey as long as he got him some, who cares, right?
The most disappointing part is really that the author didn't seem to get how completely unhealthy this relationship really is. This isn't love. This isn't romantic. This is just sad. Sex does not a relationship make. Even if it's great sex. And just because you have sex 5 times a week, doesn't make it great sex. If you worked so much that week your eyes are about to bleed, going home to have to make your man happy by giving him a bj isn't right. That's not romantic. That's just serving your man to make HIM happy. I don't know. This whole story just rubbed me the wrong way.
Eh. Not really. I mean if you can get the book at a great discount, sure. It wasn't bad but I wouldn't suggest paying full price for this one.
Yes, but next time I might look at the length beforehand. There is a difference between a well written short story, and a story cut short. This was most definitely the latter.
Uhh that's it? Where's the rest of the story? This was ore like the start of a good book that cut off a few chapters in.
It made me wonder how in the world this book got published. Not that it wasn't a great start but it was far from a full story. It left you sitting there confused how it could end so quick. It was more like a preview of an upcoming full novel.
