Fifty Shades Trilogy- E.L. James – Review- Spoiler alert!

I suppose I should review each book, then perhaps wrap it up with a summary.  There is no way I can come up with to review this trilogy without giving some spoilers so please don't read this if you are picky about knowing anything. Fifty Shades of Grey:  I should clarify first that I read … Continue reading Fifty Shades Trilogy- E.L. James – Review- Spoiler alert!

Book 83, 84 and Finally number 85

Emma Goldrick’s “My Brother’s Keeper” Again I find myself having difficulty getting into the story simply because neither character seemed that attractive to me.  I wonder if I am actually just shallow in this way.  Otherwise, a decent story of rather unlikely love coming to be. Michelle Reid’s “A Question of Pride” Ah the office … Continue reading Book 83, 84 and Finally number 85

Book 78, 79, 80, 81, 82

Jane Corrie’s “Bride for Sale” The hardest pill to swallow in this story is the age difference depicted in the front photo.   I didn't find him that much older in the story but the front photo has him looking like her Grandfather.  Not a bad story, it held my interest.  The arranged married idea modernized … Continue reading Book 78, 79, 80, 81, 82

Book 72,73,74,75,76,77

Sara Craven’s “Comparative Strangers” Nothing to complain about, this story was a good read.  I couldn't predict everything.  Which at this point in reading these novels I was starting to get a bit bored with the stories.  Awkward situations make for the best romances, don't they? Diana Hamilton's "Dark Charade" Ah the twisted Sister-In-Law in … Continue reading Book 72,73,74,75,76,77

Book 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 70, and 71

Joanna Mansell’s “Illusion of Paradise” This book struck me as rather unusual for a romance novel and I enjoyed the adventure side of it.  Fun, serious, analytical, deep and finally romantic. Emma Darcy's "The Positive Approach" I admit I was a little pessimistic with the title, sounded rather cheesy.  Although I had a hard time … Continue reading Book 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 70, and 71

Book 60, 61, 62, 63: “Equal Opportunities”, “An Expert Teacher”, “Smoke in the Wind”, By Love Bewitched”

Penny Jordan’s “Equal Opportunities” I admit to having a tough time with this one simply from the fail portrait on the front.  Shallow of me?  Yes, I found out that I enjoy a romance novel much better if the portrait of the main characters are attractive people and this one fell short.  If not attractive, … Continue reading Book 60, 61, 62, 63: “Equal Opportunities”, “An Expert Teacher”, “Smoke in the Wind”, By Love Bewitched”

Book 59: “Dangerous Obsession”

Patricia Wilson’s “Dangerous Obsession” This was an ok story.  I am getting a little tired of the strung out "does he love me, does she love me, oh but what about this or that in the way",  in these books due to lack of communication though.  Maybe that is true to life?  I suppose. The … Continue reading Book 59: “Dangerous Obsession”

Book 58: “Frazer’s Law”

Madeleine Ker’s “Frazer’s Law” What a great fantasy and fairy tale wrapped into one.  I loved this budding romance and the holding back to become best friends was wonderful.  This little book stirred a lot of emotions in me.  From passion to frustration when she ran to him when in my head she should have … Continue reading Book 58: “Frazer’s Law”

Book 57: “There is No Tomorrow”

Yvonne Whittal’s “There is No Tomorrow” I don't believe this one for a moment.  Who in their right mind (there is perhaps the clue as to why) would go along with someone putting them through unjustified hell just because you have a physical attraction (at first) to them?  Seriously?  I can't fathom the depth of … Continue reading Book 57: “There is No Tomorrow”

Book 55 and 56: “The Wilder Shores of Love” and “Shadows on Bali”

Madeleine Ker’s “The Wilder Shores of Love” Another story in horse territory but this one was dark with addiction and wonderful with recovery and a very mature and thoughtful leading man.  All men should be so bold, sure of themselves and wonderful.  I had one save me from myself so I could kind of identify. … Continue reading Book 55 and 56: “The Wilder Shores of Love” and “Shadows on Bali”
