In one word, riveting. A few grammatical errors here and there but all really great stories. I got angry, happy and sad with all the ladies and a couple of the guys (Drew is amazing). I cannot wait to read the rest of the series.
I must admit I started to read this a little reluctantly however I was soon completely captivated by the realism of the story and the depth of the characters. One of the best fantasy books I have read in a long time and the best and most plausible dealing with underwater civilizations. Thoroughly well researched with a fast moving plot and two fascinating main characters. In my mind a better read for sci-fi fans than Harry Potter as the witches and spells worlds have been done to ad nauseum.I hear Hollywood knocking...
Not an easy read, infidelity is never sexy or glamorous and the author conveyed that without sounding too lecturing. It is true that Caribbean, African or black whatever you call it does emphasize quantity over quality when it comes to relationships. Unfortunately Marie's situation is more the norm than the unique. Maybe someday we can actually start treating our women like the queens we purport them to be.
This was a very pleasant surprise. The characters are deep and well fleshed out. The background story was very plausible and as realistic as can be when discussing vampires. The only disappointment was the one full sex scene which was a bit perfunctory for all the passion described.
A very good story. I was not a fan of Samantha, she seems to be indecisive, selfish and no back bone. I guess she redeemed herself but frankly I think David could have done better! Overall I liked the authors first attempt at romance, a little gratuitous sexual descriptions would have also been nice. Not too explicit but he kissed her and then they woke up was pathetic.
I am a straight female and this story was so hot that it has e=been downloaded to my phone for me to access at my pleasure.
So hot my computer is still smoking, this was one of the best I have ever read. Strong interesting characters and relevant poignant issues. A true pleasure.
I must admit based on the reviews I had very high hopes for this story. It did not deliver. Ellery makes Bella look like Superbowl quarterback. She is incapable of making any decisions and like Bella she is in love with two apparently great guys with a stranger than fiction life. This story lags in many places in fact I finished it out of pure curiosity. It finally got interested towards the end and then it was over. Like the Bella stories the next ones will be from one of the love interests' point of view> Hopefully the story gets better.
The author seems to be able to describe sexual acts or rather foreplay but does not actually describe any sex. I do not have to read only graphically detailed sex scenes but skipping to the next morning after hot and heavy foreplay is unnecessarily PG to me. Still a good story with lots of humor and action, well some action!
You always imagine that you need a lot of pages to tell a really great story and then you read a short one that has it all. This made me laugh, cry and smile. Hope is a wonderful thing and the two characters had lost it and helped each other find it again. A very lovely story.
A modern day fairy tale. Strange that her height was given as the reason she had never been in love. Being over 6ft myself it was never an issue. But then I was not concerned with height as much as attraction! I suppose her main reason may have been more religious although that is more hinted at than specifically noted. Overall a nice enough story.
Okay so this was a tad painful. The story plot had very little continuity and the timelines made no sense. Unless they were building some seriously high-end pre-fab houses there was no way this house was as far along as implied. Second her apparent naivete at her former lover's deception was unbelievable.I will not even address the Navy SEAL connection, I think that has been addressed by other reviewers. The unveiling of the two bad guys, Monica and Diego made no sense. Really what are the odds she was stalking both of them? The jilted wife was also a terrorist courier! And Diego the international terrorist to personally try to kill Rachel? Oh and she was also a photographer/oil-applicator for photo shoots. Then that the day after getting shot all Rachel can think of is going to the spa? Okay you get the picture it had many moments of suspended belief but it was still entertaining mostly due to Cameron and Max's chemistry. Rachel and Hawke not so much
Slow to start but once it got going it absolutely blew my mind. Great characters, action-packed and the sexual tension was amazing. The only dissapointment was that the tension was never written about, an explosive love scene would have made this perfect. Not hard-core but something other than the curtains drawing closed scenario written. The author talked the talk but definitely came up short with the lack of consumnation between Damian and Sofia on what promised to be an explosive event.
I read a lot of paranormal work but this was pretty weird even for me. I never got what Duet saw in Oskar at all. The story was a bit slow in places but overall it was interesting, weird but interesting.
I admit I was slow to get into this book but once I read a few chapters i was hooked. I was so afraid of Jimmy i kept hoping he was not going to be the S.O.B. that I thought he was but alas we know how that turned out. I felt all of Amy's emotions so clearly, I had tears in my eyes most pages towards the end there. Very well written I will be purchasing the follow up books, I hope that Amy's life gets better although i seriously doubt it.
Absolutely riveting. Amy keeps on getting more and more lousy hands dealt to her. I could not read some of the descriptions of Charlie forcing himself too soon on her, my stomach felt every ache. On to the last one...hopefully there is happiness for Amy.
Dear Author I know it can cost to have an editor but pleas have a friend look over for spelling and grammar mistakes which although numerous did not detract from the book. A great story, very well fleshed out characters and amazing sex scenes! Cannot wait to read the next!
A very sweet Cinderella story. The dialogue during sex was a bit raunchy from such a "respectable" man, it did not really mesh with the description of his mannerism. However the overall story was enjoyable.
Two well written stories. The first glossed over the Taylor issue a bit more than is realistic but the chemistry between the main characters was intense.
The second was a bit too much of a long running war of words but still overall a decent story.
This story does not initially grab you from the synopsis but this was a surprisingly well-written, imaginative, fast-paced story with lots of passion and great characters. Will look for more from this author.
I have to laugh at the review by Ms. Holmes as this is my husband minus the millions unfortunately! I love a strong male character who is vocal about his feelings and demonstrative with his affections. This was a great read with the perfect amount of passion, intrigue and character growth.
I have read the entire series and I must admit I was disappointed when Trevain and Elandria got together but then I understood that they both needed someone and moved on. Spoiler alert - Then this book changed that. I don't know if I liked the conclusion, it did not gel with how the characters had grown thus far.
Very well written with characters I enjoyed meeting. Loved the chemistry between Michael and Anne. The story was fast-paced, intelligent and full of passion. I cannot wait to read more from this author.
I have been waiting for this conclusion on pins and needles! Very very good, I loved this story. Renaldo is my new favorite character and Sabrina was pretty good too. Passionate, full of conflict and forgiveness I did not want this story to end. Ten stars.
I am troubled, I really wanted to like this book after all I bought it but I have to say it read very stiff and formal. I didn't really like either of the main characters. The author got the driving done from Manhattan to Colorado in supersonic time and they were a few unreal things in New York! An okay read.
Okay I was trying to be fair due to the age of the author but I could not finish. I struggled through more than 50% of it. There are blatant "borrowing" from everything from Twilight to Shades of Grey but the issue was in following the timeline and point of view.
