I really got into this, it has been a while since I read this type. I wish you had said this was part of a series, some of us may not live to see the end. Very entertaining though, wish I knew the end, before mine.
Normally, I don't read erotica because it's long and drawn out to the point of stupidity. This little short was surprisingly fun and the ending was a flipper! However, I will have trouble eating chocolate for a while.
Interesting piece, not my usual read, lots of names and a few things I had to look up, but - I really got into it. Thank you for the opportunity to read it. I always thought there were some odd things about history. Amazing story.
Last night, I happened on this little eBook. I thought to kill a little time, I did not want to get all caught up in some long read.
I wanted something with an edge.
I wanted something out of the norm.
Yes, I wanted something creepy.
Storms in Jars - Perfect!
Good reason to wrap up under your covers to stop the chill factor.
I enjoyed this very much.
To those who gave this less than a four or five - I send a raspberry. You read the premise, yet still read it. Why find fault?
A story or novel is to enjoy or take you away from this lack-luster life we have. This is a good story, it's a funny story, and it's a dramatic story. Only a couple of times was I befuddled for reasons of word usage, but it did not stop me from reading until midnight and the finish of the book.
I concur with Lambodar Ganesh. I was thoroughly entertained and it made my Halloween complete. I especially liked the first one - he so had it coming to him. I enjoyed the stories and think the author is a wonderful storyteller. I thank him for this gift.
I cannot say that I ever enjoyed poetry for Halloween more. This is something else. I could see the whole thing going on in my mind, no question - but I am not sure I was supposed to laugh. I did. I shall not forget A Sinister Grin, every time I think of it, I chuckle! Thank you!
I am sorry, I write crappy reviews. This book is something else, I loved the way the story was written, even though a story of death, it is truly a love story and the end is awesome. I only intended to get a little something to make me sleepy. It kept me awake most of the night because I couldn't put it away. Great stuff!
Given that I had problems with the colloquialisms of the French Canadians, I cannot leave a fair evaluation of the wording. I will say that it was THE most depressing romance I have read in a long time. The historical parts seemed just thrown in there to say it was historical, I think. I am not a great writer, myself, but I do try my best not to put people off. I am normally a nice person, but this story has brought out the ugly in me.
I had a little problem with pronouncing the names of the characters in my head, but that is my own personal problem. I don't think I have had any instruction on this period in history, it all sounds good. I did enjoy the whole thing and can recommend it highly. This one will stay with me for a while. Thank you!
With varied reviews, I wondered if they read the same book that I did. I generally skim over the sex scenes, but the non-sex scene of the wedding night was quite interesting. I found myself reading as if I were drunk for several pages after. The story was highly entertaining with the exception of wanting to grab a bucket to catch all the rolling eyes. Thank you so much!
This is the first 'First Person' story I ever read that didn't feel like it. It was not full of 'I's' and 'me's'. Beautiful narration, awesome even. You feel as if you are right there with the young girl and later as a young woman, as she goes from pain of loss for family and friends to travel to a new land. She felt very real to me.
If you like this time period, well even if you don't, you will fall in love with this writer.
This book needs an extra star or a + or something. Read the blurb and download, you WILL NOT be sorry! You'll need a baby sitter or someone to take care of the pets, as you won't be able to put this down.
While not as first rate as The Execution, Risen is a good read. There were too many flashbacks, I suppose to make it a stand alone book, but a tad boring for someone who finished the first in the series the day before. I realize it was to add more information, but... Redundancy is not my thing. If you just finished the first of the series, wait a while before you read this one. Still a good story.
IF it were not for the redundant forced sex, that weird business with the heroine and the sultan, and a desperate need of a re-write - this could have been a very good book. Many sentences are stilted and repetitive, which was annoying. Should have had a good beta reader or two to help before you submitted. I have issues with the time line and question the amount of research the author did. The basic story is a good one, though I did want to quit reading when she had that 'love affair' with the sultan, which ruined the honesty of her 'love' for Jason. Bah!
This is my first time-travel read. A woman (Grace), leaves her abusive husband to start her life over. She finds a job right away and rents a hotel room that has a picture of a man from long ago. She seems to see him everywhere. Her nights are filled with dreams of him being with her in front of a fireplace. She finds his grave marker. Eventually they meet and he accuses her of haunting him.
A delightful little read!
This is my second time-travel book. I didn't realize that Book 1 was required to read Book 3, as Book 2 (Beyond Time) seemed to be self contained. It was as if I had gone on a blind date to a dinner party, not knowing a soul. The story would speed up, and then do a slow crawl. It was a case of TMI and then a short bit of info. I only wish that I could have learned to use the computer as quickly and that I didn't have to go through that long, very detailed C-section. This will be my last fantasy time-travel book.
I didn't find this all that funny. The main character sounds more like a bitch in heat than someone moonstruck. I did read the whole thing. It left everyone hanging for the NEXT book. I try to stay away from book 1 and book 2 etc. Many writers have given up before they get around to a conclusion. I gave this a "3" because I read on my laptop and the second book is in epub. I couldn't read it if I wanted to. Thanks!
From a rebel in catholic all girl's college, "Clen" tries to remake herself. The story goes through her unsuccessful marriage to finding herself falling in love in Alaska. The story pretty much goes through her life, the ups, but the mostly downs.
I write a horrible review, but seriously, this is worth reading. I enjoyed reading it and felt at if it were a biography - even if it wasn't. Well written (100% better than my attempt at this review) I wanted to give her these stars, she earned them.
I enjoyed this story, but the new 'love' on the scene, I wanted to shake him good, dense - she had so many ex-husbands pegged got the dependencies they have on their first wives.
Oscar should have gotten a business end of a cattle prod.
Good Christian cowboy tale with reality - I remember that earth shattering experience, but to a lesser point, in Livingston. Jessica is the shy type, thinking she is not good enough. Clint is too good looking and I think qualifies equally with Robert as one good looking match for the girl with a heart of gold.
A most enjoyable read. I never liked history, but told in the first person as a spectator and participant, all I can say is wow. Very interesting. Thanks for the free read.
I might suggest that you chase down your typos. This book is truly worthy of that polish.
I enjoyed this story about a very loving family. The Garrett I saw in my mind as I read it was not the one on the cover. The Garrett I saw was "Hoss", the one from the old Bonanza series, so the romantic stuff was a little hard to swallow. :/
I really enjoyed this book. It does stand on its own. Lots of love and heartache - sort of like life. Strong characters. Excellent story!
A few mix-ups with Annie and Alice, very few other typos.
I would have liked the full dream series in a reduced price boxed set. I will have to pass though, I read at least 100K a day and it's not in my budget.
WOW... There are times when I wondered if the main character, Emmeline, (who is schizophrenic) isn't the only one with a problem. Emmeline meets Blaze, they kind of connect and he thinks he can 'fix' her. This is a story on a long, rough road with so many curves and bumps, but you won't want to put it down until the end. Fast paced, read it all so you don't miss anything!
I absolutely loved it!
I was amazed at how well this was written for a first book. Oh it has a few bits that need polishing, but not bad enough to make it less than a five star.
When a young inexperienced girl gets herself in trouble because of a spoiled rich kid attitude, it can change the outcome of her whole life and how she feels about love and trust.
I enjoyed this book and ended up finishing it instead of going to bed. Yawn!
A good read.
A romantic thriller that you can't put down. More twists and turns than a pretzel factory gone haywire and it all makes sense even though as you live in it, it is unbelievable. Just when you have it figured - nope - something changes. If you like this genre, you will love A Chance Encounter!
I thank the author for the opportunity to read this novel.
woman returns to the family business to find out who is stealing money from the company. She is working under the guy who broke her heart, two years previous when she fled miserable and pregnant. She lost the baby, and no one is the wiser. She's like a dog in heat meeting him again... I quit after page 35. Blech!
