Smashwords book reviews by vt750s

  • A Companion for Life on April 07, 2013

    This is the first book I have read in which the author herself seems to dislike the heroine.
  • Love Sneaked In on May 13, 2013

    Whilst the premise is good, the writing is stilted and dry and the dialogue between the characters is awkward.
  • Turned Around By Love on May 13, 2013

    Whilst the premise is good, the writing is stilted and dry and the dialogue between the characters is awkward. It is better than 'Love Sneaked In', though.
  • Dark Secrets on May 21, 2013

    This started out feeling like a Twilight fan fiction, but the characters are much more interesting and whilst there is some 'alpha male' behaviour, it doesn't have that disturbing undercurrent of domination/submission.
  • The Forever Series Bundle on May 26, 2013

    The paranormal element to these books is weird and unnecessary, and I could never quite figure out when they are supposed to be set. Regards of the period, there are a good few incongruous events which occur, e.g. the behaviours in the ballrooms would have ensured the parties involved were kicked out and never invited back.
  • A Knight of Honor on May 26, 2013

    Nicely written, an interesting plot, and engaging characters. I will be looking for more by this author.
  • Holy Scoundrel (Knave of Hearts: Book Four) on May 26, 2013

    It kind of annoyed me to find that the author has plagiarised herself - there is nearly a whole chapter in here lifted from 'Untamable Rogue'.
  • Lady Ann's Excellent Adventure (A Regency Short Story) on May 26, 2013

    I do love Candice Hern's writing, and can't wait for more!
  • Kitty Bennet's Diary on June 25, 2013

    I liked that Kitty's character was developed and matured - in Austen's original story she doesn't have much of a function. I also liked that Kitty got her happily ever after, as imagined by Jane herself. More please!
  • Viking Rule on Oct. 13, 2013

    The poor spelling and grammar detract from the story, and the tense keeps changing.
  • Jane Austen's Mansfield Park: Abridged on Nov. 15, 2013
    (no rating)
    Reading an abridged version of Austen can be likened to smelling chocolate, but not being allowed to eat it. Eat the chocolate. You won't regret it.
  • Teased on April 26, 2014

    I found this book very confusing, as the author seemed to forget her story halfway through. Simple facts established at the beginning of the book changed towards the middle: e.g, Alex meets Melanie on a commercial flight, but they later both agree that they first met days after that flight. The inconsistencies made me lose interest.
  • Transcendence on April 26, 2014

    I have read this book a number of times since purchasing it, and have thoroughly enjoyed it each time. Putting the story almost entirely from his perspective is genius, as we can extrapolate her reaction to the world she has been dropped into. He is unknown, and infinitely more interesting.
  • Sexy Berkeley on May 10, 2014

    Bea is freaking annoying, and so wishy-washy I just wanted to shake her. She took no chances to be with the man she professed to love so much.
  • A Lesson in Love on May 10, 2014

    I reckon this should have been split into two books, to give each section more room for development. As it was, the book felt rushed, like the author wanted to be done with it.
  • Owning Arabella on May 10, 2014

    I thought the excessive use of the 'R' word put a very disturbing spin on this book. Not at all romantic.
