Loving a Prince Charming by Danielle Monsch
Loving a Prince Charming - Danielle Monsch

Prince Seth has been promised to princess Rosamund since his birth. He also promised her to save her from the curse and to never love anyone but her when he was thirteen...But life, love, and fate are fickle.


I didn't like this one. There was no development in the character voice (at least for Seth) between the first chapter (when he was thirteen) and the rest of the story (when he was twenty-five), making him sound juvenile and sometimes even childish.

The conflict dragged on for too long (and this is a short story), the characters had no real depth or personality, and the resolution was too perfect and way too easy.

Fantastic Contemporary Romance
Legally Charming - Lauren Smith

Legally Charming by Lauren Smith is a touching contemporary romance.  Ms. Smith has delivered a well-written book.  The characters are phenomenal and the best part of the book.  Felicity is quiet and a little on the shy side.  Jared is an overworked lawyer.  Their story is full of ups and downs with plenty of drama, humor, sizzle and a little action.  This is not a book with overwhelming angst.  I enjoyed this book from cover to cover and look forward to reading more from Lauren Smith in the future.  Legally Charming is book 1 of the Ever After Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

I voluntarily read a complimentary copy of this book that I received from Bookfunnel.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

This was a absolutely charming book that I could not put down. Brad and Hannah are great together. Them trying to fit a relationship in with their crazy schedules. I loved the fact that Hannah had anxiety and dealt with it. The friendships that each of the characters had and relationship that brad had with his family was great. I cannot wait for the next book in this serious. Kristen Proby did not let me down with this book.

Marriage bargains across the sea
The Shuttle - Frances Hodgson Burnett

Like it happened to me with the two previous novels by this author, this book happened to me also. As in, there I was reading, and the gorgeous writing caught me and carried me through the pages.

 

The starting issue is difficult to read and heartbreaking. Mixing of cultures, a despicable man and a sweet, naive girl. Reading Nigel's though process was forever icky, and, like I mentioned in some progress update, an abridged manual for abusers. It is startling and scary how accurate many of his observations on human behavior are, and how he uses normal expectations and disbelief as a refuge in audacity (at one point he observes how he's being over-the-top in his villainy, and how it's to his advantage, because who would believe such a discourse happened in real life).

 

Once Betty enters the stage to stay, it becomes more like the standard Hodgson Burnett fare. Much like Sarah Crewe, she's a plucky, resourceful angel. It's one of those unbelievable characters that one still can't help but love and be charmed by.

 

It is a lovely book that tackles a thorny issue in a somewhat rosy but insightful way, and I liked it very much.
