A Song at Twilight (A Song at Twilight #1) review

Posted : 3 days, 21 hours ago on 23 June 2017 09:39 (A review of A Song at Twilight (A Song at Twilight #1) )

I liked both Sophie and Robin, they were both strong characters and I liked the setting as it was in the late Victorian years, I enjoyed seeing them together when they were younger and I could feel the chemistry between them and I was hoping it would be something trivial as to the reason why he would break up with her despite it taking them four years to get back lol, I thought Sophie was stronger during them years when they weren't together and I liked seeing how she at least moved on and focused on her life and career whilst Robin had to suffer for his reasons leaving her.
When the part came when they met up again I thought Sophie might have been a little more reluctant to taking him back but I couldn't blame her when she heard of what happened throughout them four years and knowing that he suffered just as much and with it being in that era he didn't have much choice but to leave her but I was happy that they had a second chance and he wasn't going to let her get away.
I also enjoyed the suspense and the flashbacks as you got to know more about the background of the story and there was no getting lost on the way whilst reading and I enjoyed the ending.

Romantic Encounter (The Best of Betty Neels) review

Posted : 4 days, 22 hours ago on 22 June 2017 08:38 (A review of Romantic Encounter (The Best of Betty Neels) )

This book got me straight away and I havent been able to put it down, I had mixed feelings about the H Alexander but Florence I did like, she was fiery as she was described in the book and in this one she wasn't a plain Jane which makes me think if she was perhaps Alexander might have softened towards her lol. Alexander did eventually grow on me but just like Florence when you began to like him he would do a big turn around and you would begin to dislike him again.
I liked how Florence stood up to herself when it came to the ow who didn't do much mischief and it made a nice change and I liked the settings and Florence's family, I enjoyed it when Alexander got a little jealous but didn't show it when she talks to an engaged co worker at the hospital and I enjoyed the ending despite it being short.

Enzo (Jinx Tattoos #1) review

Posted : 5 days, 22 hours ago on 21 June 2017 08:43 (A review of Enzo (Jinx Tattoos #1) )

I enjoyed the angst between the two main characters Enzo and Aibhlinn and the sections about both their pasts and how it molded them to be what they are today, Enzo was a manwhore and was secretly in love with Aibhlinn but he though he would ruin their friendship if they ever did anything due to his bad past and Aibhlinn loved him but was too scared to tell him, I liked how Enzo broke down and told Aibhlinn all about his mother and her drug use and how Aibhlinn reacted but my heart broke when Enzo left her to seek help and Aibhlinn moved on and it was interesting to see how Aibhlinn's childhood turned out and about what happened to her.
I liked the abandoned baby plot and like most baby themed stories that I've read I basically thought that it was a secret pregnancy storyline to do with one of Enzo's one night stands but I was pleasantly surprised despite how the baby came to be found, I liked how Enzo and Aibhlinn basically stood up to become parents of the baby and I loved the ending

The Domville (The Domville #6) review

Posted : 1 week ago on 20 June 2017 05:42 (A review of The Domville (The Domville #6) )

This story made me smile, laugh and cringe lol, I felt for the h Toni as she is still pining for her old college friend Finian the college playboy who left her ten years ago to go to Dubai and never bothered to contact her again because she drunkenly confessed her feelings to him and of course back then she was always kept in the friend zone and now it's the class reunion and Finian is going to be there and she decides to go and make him see what he's been missing.
I like the H Finian especially when he first sees her at the reunion and this time he falls for her and I liked her reaction when she first sees him that did make me smile and it was nice for him to eventually go after what he wants rather than her do the chasing.
So overall I enjoyed this book from start to finish and I would have like to have read more about them and their future.

The One that Got Away review

Posted : 1 week, 1 day ago on 18 June 2017 07:25 (A review of The One that Got Away )

This was a very short story and I think it's more like a hfn than a hea as the H basically lead her on at the beginning and then broke the news that he was having an on/off relationship with another woman, he then left her and moved in with his gf.
If it was a longer story I would have liked to have seen her move on but he does come back after a few months and telling her that even though he loves her he slept with his gf to see if any new feelings would happen but nothing did all he kept thinking about was her so he dumped his gf and crawled back to her and she let him.
The reason why I say it's a hfn is because his dad is dying and that's one of the reasons why he's come back to stay but once his dad dies he might decide to leave again and get back in an on/off relationship with his ex gf.

Natasha's Awakening (Natasha's Awakening #1) review

Posted : 1 week, 2 days ago on 18 June 2017 05:26 (A review of Natasha's Awakening (Natasha's Awakening #1))

This book caught my eye because I like the boss and assistant theme and I enjoyed from what I read because I only got into it halfway through as the beginning to the middle is just mostly sex but I did like how he got jealous when she only spoke to another man.
I liked both characters but it seemed to me that they didn't really know each other personally and I thought she was a little too trusting as she was his PA for a year and saw women come and go and then all of a sudden he wanted her and if it wasn't for the pregnancy plotline he would have dropped her after the week of just sex and steered to the nearest blonde.
it did get a bit exciting near the end especially when his ex turned up and I thought the h was a bit too gullible but it all ended well and I liked the epilogues.

Her Wildest Dreams (Connected #2) review

Posted : 1 week, 2 days ago on 18 June 2017 03:35 (A review of Her Wildest Dreams (Connected #2) )

I liked this book in the beginning when Allie a shy little wallflower stood up for herself when getting mugged and I felt for Allie when her brother's best friend Alex who helps her and whom she has a crush on basically hurts her feelings after sleeping with her, so after that and a few other things that makes her angry she quits her job, she has a makeover and goes to Ireland for a break and it made me happy seeing her move on over there with someone who is experienced.
When she does come back Alex is obviously shocked at her change and is jealous and I thought he was a little shallow because she only caught his eye after the makeover and before that he was calling her a dull mouse and was comparing her to other women and I thought it would get better from there but basically the rest of the pages was her showing Alex what the man from Ireland had taught her and I thought the ending was very quick but overall it was a good read.

More Than A Friend (Cottage Grove #3) review

Posted : 1 week, 2 days ago on 17 June 2017 11:19 (A review of More Than A Friend (Cottage Grove #3) )

This book made me smile all the way through, I loved the beginning of how they first met and I loved both Bentley and Miri and even though Bentley was all for the women I thought him sweet and I'm pleased that Miri kept him in the friend zone and I loved her grandmother despite her and other people's attitude to Miri's cousin Maise who wasn't in the book that much, she was described as Bentley's female version but there wasn't really a reason in the story for her to be hated.
I liked how the romance was sizzling but was yet slow and the ending was satisfying but it still made me want to read more.

Take Me (The Untouchables #1) review

Posted : 1 week, 2 days ago on 17 June 2017 10:40 (A review of Take Me (The Untouchables #1) )

The H was like a spoilt little boy so I shouldn't have been really shocked about how he kept the h on a string and then lie to her about him breaking the engagement to OW, and then basically told her she wasn't fit to marry him because she didn't have the right background and breeding and then basically forces himself onto her and then OW finds out and decides she doesn't want to marry him so he goes to the h and proposes to her which I can't understand seeing as originally in his eyes she wasn't fit to marry him lol and she accepts when I wanted her to move on and leave him in the dust and then he blames her for his ex causing trouble and yet she comes back for more.
I did enjoy being in that world though and I liked the other characters.

Until There Was You (Starlight Hill #3) review

Posted : 1 week, 2 days ago on 17 June 2017 09:52 (A review of Until There Was You (Starlight Hill #3))

A pleasant book but Wallace was a bit wishy washy to me and he was a bit slow on the uptake but as I read on I could understand why, Genevieve was a strong character and I was glad to see that she tried to move on despite the man being a look alike for Wallace lol.
The chemistry between them was good and I liked their families especially his mother and I liked the ending despite it being a little short.
