About The Perfect Gentleman:
For Nathan Alexander it’s not an option. It’s a way of life. As an attorney he defends the defenseless. But when the suit comes off and the gloves go on, his passion is teaching others how to defend themselves. His life was purposefully methodical. Completely under control. Just the way he likes it. Until Emma McClain walks in his gym. Battered. Broken. And utterly breathtaking. After his last relationship, Alex swore he’d never give another woman the power to hurt him. But with her unforgettable smile and killer legs, Emma has him fighting for control. Little does he know she is fighting for her life. Will he be able to save her before it’s too late? Or will an unexpected revelation cost them both the ultimate price?

Book Review – Tempting the Best Man

3 Stars

The title is very misleading, ‘The Tempting Best Man’ would work a lot better.

I had an idea of a story about two old friends feeling frisky at a wedding and having a quick affair that blossomed into more.

Instead, the plot is tamer and a lot more contemporary romance. Not a story for those looking for hotness. Short and sweet with a bit of comedy, a great quick summer read.

Book Review – Raise The Titanic by Clive Cussler

2 Stars

I should have probably done my research before trying to read this.

You see, i am doing reasearch for my own novel based on the decks of the doomed liner. This book came up in my googling, so i bought it. However, what i didn’t know was this was published in 1980. Five years before the Titanic’s wreck was discovered.

There was also a lot of creative liscence taken with this story (or i hope, otherwise Cussler should have really done his reasearch more furrowly) , so that makes it practically useless for research purposes.

However what really killed this story for me was the dialogue. The characters talk like writers writing a scene, i find it very unbelievable that people would actually say some of these things in general conversation. They just killed it for me.

Book Review – Afterburn/Aftershock by Sylvia Day

17607911

Four Stars

Have you ever read Miss Day’s Bared to you? If so, you’ll love these short stories. If not, it’s a great introduction to Miss Day’s work.

This story is kind of a shorter, more light-hearted version of her Crossfire Series, just with less sex and Over Top Drama and shorter than any one of those books.Great for a light-hearted Summer read.

Book Review – Mack Daddy by Penelope Ward

33783309.jpg

2.5 Stars

I’m Afraid i couldn’t finish this.

Penelope Ward has an interesting style and her time jumps reveal the back story rather nicely. However the plot of this book just struck as over the top and unblievable from the second half onwards.

Spoiler Warning!
At first, i thought it was interesting, but after the characters have sex, Mack’s ex barges in and all hell breaks loose along with my interest. The ex it seems takes Umbridge to him having a lover even though it’s made very clear she’s seeing other people, and then proccedds to take their son back across the country. Forcing Mack to sell everything and follow. If that wasn’t weird enough, his estranged dad then pops by to tell him he know’s about Frankie’s past and if Mack doesn’t wash his hands of her and go back to his family, he will spread the word about it (a act that would have her and her mother killed ‘WTF!).
Spoiler End

This book wasn’t for me, hopefully the third book i read from Lady Ward will hit the mark.

Oh, and what’s the deal with the cover? Afraid i have to subtract marks for the guy with his shirt off. I know the audiance (female readers) love the sight but for me, a cover should tease at the plot. This tells me nothing and as the character generally spends his time with his cloths on, it’s more than a little inacurate.

Book Review – A Season In Hell by Jack Higgins

4 Stars

 

It’s books like this that are really turning me into a fan of Mr. Higgins.

True, the summary is a bit misgiving. I was expecting a dark and gritty story of a former SAS soldier now working as a assasin, dealing bloody vengeance to the mom who murdered the stepson of a wealthy American Woman.

No, this book has a lot more heart than that and is gripping from the first page to the last. The only reason i have given it a 4 star opposed to a 5 star is because i wanted to see a showdown, the minibattle of the two hired guns going head to head. How Mr Higgins handed it instead was thrilling all the same but it’s not the same.

The writing style is quick and easy, the characters while not exactly deep or hampered with growth, are endearing. Forget, Custler, Clancy & Ludlum. This is the perfect example of why Jack Higgins is the master of adventure and action.
