- Evil Friend Pregnant Lover
on March 01, 2011
I can't believe this has 4.5 stars. The writing is HORRIBLE. It was so bad, it actually made me sign up as a member so that I could write this review. The story is full of run on sentences. For example, page 11 has 20 lines and the only period on the page is at the end. I can't even get into the plot, because the writing is so bad, it makes it impossible to understand what the heck is going on. He flies her to Paris and back, kisses her on the cheek and says goodbye, they allude to a few more dates, she runs away and finds out she's pregnant. He finds her, they argue about his wife and kid, and he says "I didn't tell you about them, because I don't tell my life story after just one date."??? Skip this one, folks, seriously.
- Love Like This - Black Family Series

The story was interesting, but the plot got a little out of whack a few times. What kept this from being a great story was the fact that the writing was....not good. Someone else said disjointed and odd, that's a good description. I feel like it really could have been so much more.
And what guy wears green slacks and a green shirt and looks good in it???? Not believable at all.
- Leather, Lace and Rock-n-Roll (SEALS, Inc., Book 1)

The readers that reviewed this I don't think actually read the book. It wasn't totally horrible. Grammatically, it was well written. I actually liked most of the dialogue, particularly between Cameron and Max. For the most part, the characters were very likable. It had potential to be a really good book. Now for the bad parts. The plot was weak at best. Totally unbelievable for the most part. The lead female character is an architect and the writer expects us to believe that she's apparently a magician. She manages to draw up plans for a house in a ritzy subdivision AND get permits for the entire building process in less than a day, breaks ground on the same day the blueprints and permits are done, the entire frame is built and burned down the next day, within a week the house is almost finished and then vandalized, then within days, it's rebuilt and the lead male character is living there??? I realize you can have a lot of leeway with fiction, but really?? There are no details at all about the bad guy, you just are told that he's after her. But why? There is no real reason for him to want to kill her. Him showing up at the end was kind of silly, if he's the head honcho, wouldn't he have people to do that kind of dirty work for him? With no introduction at all through the entire book,except for a brief mention here and there, he shows up with no back up, no henchmen, nothing, and attempts to take care of Rachel himself. And what was the deal with the firemen? Charity calenders usually hire a professional to take the pictures, not an architect and an interior designer. If the story had some continuity, and a bit of realism, it would be a whole lot better.
- Until the Sun Falls from the Sky
on March 15, 2012
I absolutely love Kristen Ashley. I have at least a hundred favorite authors, and very few of them make me anticipate a book as much as she does. Until The Sun Falls From The Sky lived up to her usual hype. I loved it, and am seriously anxious to read the rest of the series. Thank god she writes fast!
