I have never really understood men, and my ex could NEVER be a gentleman (no opening doors, no holding out chairs, slurping his food) and it irritated me to no end.
However, this little ditty makes me see it from a guy's point of view and I guess it is hard on everyone all around. But I don't get why the main character is so hung up over the break-up; after all HE breaks up with HER? So why mop?
Other than the glaring typos, it is quite a good read. But that doesn't mean I have forgiven my ex for slurping.
Michael Brandt is a man made just how I like them, with a protective streak broader than the Grand Canyon. What do you say about a man who drives THIRTEEN hours just to make sure you are safe? Irresistible, that's what.
Ordinarily, I do not read romance labelled as 'fantasy', but Mad Hatter got my attention right from the synopsis. Reading this book was a wise decision and an unexpected delight. Deserving of 5 stars for the vivid story telling that twists Alice in Wonderland without distorting it. All the while I was thinking, 'This would make a ginormous Box Office hit if somebody turned it into a movie.' Are you listening Ms. Hall? Thank you for the beautiful story.
Wow! This book thoroughly deserves six or more stars. A story about how love does truly triumphant over all, and how two people unexpectedly come to find love. If this book is on your reading list, bump it to the top; drop everything you are doing right now and lose yourself in this wonderful tale in which the greatest magic of all is not magic, but the power of love.
I am really glad I took the time to read this book. Not only was it enjoyable, but it was very realistic in terms of addressing the issues the main characters face all the while not underplaying the power and redeeming quality of love. Kudos to the author.
Wow and again wow! When I saw 'jocks' in the title, I was expecting a lot of dumb-assery and actually hesitated a moment before downloading the book. However, all the positive reviews made me think twice and I am glad I cast aside the stereotype and took the time to read this little treasure. It would have been totally my loss if I had not. One of the best reads I have come across on Smashwords so far.
I have passed this book over a number of times and it has been my loss every single time. The depth, the candor, the rawness of the emotions in this book makes it a gripping read that is worth every star plus one. The conflict the main characters face, having to decide whether love and passion trump honor and family...let's just say it put me at the edge of my seat, and I barely remembered to breath until the very last page.
This is a book about how love can transform and redeem; how love can bring a person from the darkness into the light; and how love is selfless in that we do not just love perfect people, but we love people as they are. Yes, I give this book 5.5 stars.
This book had romance just the way I like it. I find it very hard to keep with a book once I come across grammatical errors, but this read was so gripping I overlooked those. Being her first digital book, I cannot wait to see what Eleanor Webb has in store for us. The intro to "Going for Gold" looks intriguing and I can't wait to get my hands on it! Five star recommendation for "The Job Offer"
I love strong, silently sexy Ryan and explosive Rachel, and the way these two just push each others' buttons in the wrongest right way possible. Read this book and fall in love with two memorable protagonists, and of course a best friend side kick who also gets her own happy ending. Love It!
Elle Wood does it again! I loved this romance. The hero wants his revenge --or thinks he does. What he needs is to quench the thirst of a ten year love drought. In this case love outwits him in a really really good way.
Samantha David is an outstanding author. She somehow manages to infuse the ordinary with just a touch of whimsy that makes you wonder, 'could this really happen?' Of course it can. I wasn't even sure msyelf who was playing spy and who wasn't, until the very end. An awesome read that will make you hold your breath until the very last page --unless you are laughing or tittering along with her lovable characters.
Oh yes! m/m romance with the perfect smoldering recipe. Mike --impulsive, daredevilish, in-your-face and just a wee bit crazy; James --straighlaced, stuffy, by-the-book and as staid as they come. But both have a lot of angst to work out and unresolved issues to overcome before they can look forward to a future together. Well developed characters with a plausible, engaging storyline and searing hot hot HOT sex.
This is a wondrful read, immersing you into the world of fae and the hero, Karl, as he fights to gain his freedom. What I love about this book is the depth of character development even for the players who only make a one-scene appearance. A delightful short read.
Wonderful book. Alexia and Josh are two souls each lost in their own way, and when they find each other, one redeems the other as they come to taste and understand what true love means. The love in this book is palpable --not just the love Alexia has for Josh and vice versa, but also the love of a parent for his child, a brother for his sister, family for each other... All round fantastic read. Moving on to Miss Lee's other titles.
I have been reading Suilan Lee's book for the past 48 hours straight and I just can't stop. The experience only gets better. I think Dan is one of the sexiest, strongest, most lovable protagonists I have ever come across. He is everything you would ever want in a man --gentle, selfless, driven, trustworthy, passionate, patient, honest..etc etc. It almost sounds like an impossible paragon but Lee infuses him with such 'normalness' that you see he is just a man willing to sacrifice everything and go to the ends of the universe for the man he loves. Outstanding book.
