The Duke is Mine

The Duke Is Mine (Happily Ever Afters, #3)The Duke Is Mine by Eloisa James

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I thought this book was very amusing at times and was also sad in places. Olivia and her sister Georgiana spent their entire lives being trained to be duchesses due to a betrothal arranged before any of the three were born. Olivia, who is 7 minutes older than her twin, is the affianced, and while her intended Rupert is away at war (but safely out of action) she and her sister attend a party to hopefully find Georgie a husband. Throw in scientists, hijinks, a crazy mom, hormones, a daring rescue and true love and you have an excellent fast paced story with an almost completely happy ending. This is part of James’ Fairy Tale series and is based loosely on The Princess and the Pea (though the prospective mother in law runs tests that do not involve a pea). While I like the previous book When Beauty Tamed the Beast better, I really did enjoy this book and most certainly will be reading it again.

Review: Run

Run by Blake Crouch
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I really didn’t like it. I’m not sure why, I just couldn’t get into it. I did a lot of skipping forward.

It just wasn’t my cup of tea. I’m not going to knock anyone who enjoyed it. Just saying I didn’t like it.

I honestly can’t tell you what the story was about.
It got lost in the sea of sickness and fevers.
I am going to have to come back and re-read, at some point, because I can’t even give a true review of it.

Review: Bachelors of Bear Creek Bundle

Bachelors of Bear Creek Bundle
Bachelors of Bear Creek Bundle by Lori Wilde
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It was SO good!! All of them.
My only issue was that it was printed out of order. The first story was the 3rd story. Though it might have been released that way, it should have been done in chronological order. At least, that’s how I feel about it.

The more I read about Bear Creek, Alaska, the more I wanted to know about it. It sucked me in, similarly to how Long Tall Texans (Diana Palmer) did to me. I want more from them. I don’t even need them to be Blaze books. Just any sort of book, honestly. I loved reading about it!

Review: The Purchased Wife

The Purchased Wife by Michelle Reid
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Another of those “I’m in love with her, but she’s too young and there was a big misunderstanding”
Why do authors keep using this trite and tried and overused template. Throw SOME sort of curveball into it. SOMETHING. ANYTHING!

Review: The Last Kolovsky Playboy

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This one was good, but not great.
The female main character was described as “chunky” but honestly, if she’s wearing a bikini, she’s not chunky. No ifs, ands, or buts about it.

It didn’t feel as rushed, but it was weird. Not weird as in “WTF?” More just … I don’t know how to explain it. It just jived weird for me. Annika was just too all over the place for me to truly enjoy the read.
