I'm a registered nurse. Reading gives me that escape I need. I read primarily romance in all genres.
I have mixed emotions about this one, mainly because of Cassie (Cassionetta). On one hand I sympathize with her, because I could see how easy it would be to fall for a guy when one has some self-esteem issues and that person only shows a certain side. On the other hand, I wanted her to buck up and take action, even when it meant asking for help and admitting her mistake. She does, but I found her hard to like. I also would have liked Jeremy to declare his feelings sooner than he did.
Bridget owns the neighborhood bar and that's her life. It's Christmas eve and one of her employee's flaked on her leaving her to deliver some alcohol to a N.F. resident. (As Bridget says, he's so fired!).
It's snowing and she needs a truck. Enter Sam. There has been attraction between them, Sam believes he isn't good enough for her.
I didn't like Sam making choices for Bridget, but Bridget puts a stop to that. I liked her, she doesn't put up with bullshit. I have the feeling that this couple was featured in an earlier book that I haven't read, but I didn't feel like I was missing out.
This is a series I mean to pick up (I liked the first book; it was free at one point in time), but haven't gotten around to it yet.
Renner and Bethany first meet when Renner was taken in by her family as a child. Bethany was always kind to him, but there were many moments where he wasn't with her. Because, ya know Reasons.
When it was all said and done, I liked this one. I thought Renner's explanation and honesty once he reconnected with Bethany was important. If he hadn't been honest that would have ruined it for me. Interesting concept that cat shifter's, well the male ones, have multiple partners, but the chosen female is monogamous. That was one the the underlying themes; the whole it's in our nature vs it's totally a choice. Both main characters (and secondary ones) were likable and I wouldn't mind picking up more books in this series/by this author.
I have mixed feelings about this one. Of all the books in this series, this was the most serious in tone (and had the least amount of sexy times). I liked Derrick and thought he actions (attitude) was realistic for someone with PTSD and dealing with life changing events (his paralysis).
I was disappointed in Janine. She had some BIG daddy issues that she hadn't gotten over and (of course) this affected her relationship with Derrick. To a point I understood her, and then not.
Not the best, not the worst (Jungle Freakn' Bride just pissed me off) in this series.
Kelsie is the maid of honor at her sister's wedding and she desperately doesn't want to go alone (the best man is her ex and the groom's brother). Sawyer is an upstairs neighbor with an revolving door of women. They come to an agreement that he will help her land a date to the wedding.
Firstly, who invites a blind date- someone they have NEVER met to their home?! They've conversed online only. Yeah, no, that was stupid. I was ambivalent about Kelsie (aside from inviting a stranger to her home). I outright didn't like Sawyer. He was a man-whore who get jealous whenever Kelsie would talk to another guy. That was the whole point of taking her under his wing. But, wait! Kelsie is different!! I think what drew Sawyer to Kelsie was she didn't fall at his feet. I just couldn't get into the romance.
This was a little different. Luke and Merit are celebrating their 1 year wedding anniversary when they are attacked by vampires. Merit dies, leaving Luke a vampire. He mourns her. A year later, she Falls. His inability to let her go is keeping her from getting her halo.
This was nice, but had a lot of insta-love. I say that because Merit had no memory of Luke or her life from a year prior, but is drawn to him. Nice resolution. I also liked the tie-in with Francois (a homeless man Luke helps) at the end.
