The 33 Strategies Of War - Robert Greene

A book delightfully tailored for sociopathic power-hungry egomaniacs. CEOs, high ranking managers and other politician-like creatures who will revel in the comparisons and nit-picked historical short stories that Mr Greene quotes.

However, to the Scientific Reader®—a creature devoid of the troubles of unclear thinking—the vast compilation of ad verecundiam arguments and the pacing and unclear (and often contradictory) resolutions and conclusions of these strategies, makes for a rather skeptical read.

This book makes great use of a single tactic in warfare, the one where you douse your enemies in smoke, to make a retreat from delivering. It's a long book with some interesting anecdotes here and there; but more of a compendium with an evil cover, than anything else.

tl;dr copy-pasted egomaniacal power-trip historical fantasy

"To The Woman He Loves 3" by Theresa Hodge & Shani Greene-Dowdell

 

My Thoughts....

 

I liked the ending to this third series featuring Ronan and Ruby as they were truly trying to rebuild their marriage especially Ronan. Naturally there was temptation for Ruby that would have to be worked out from all of the attention she was getting from Daryl.  But I will say that guy Daryl had some nerve in going in for what he wanted which put Ruby front and center in finally letting go and really getting who she wanted.

 

As the story continued on I was caused to wonder about another character and that was Mark and his assistant. I really didn't like how that was left with the reader to wonder long and hard about that situation. Did his wife Serenity really have a reason to wonder about the assistant. YES!  Oh well, maybe that's for another story along with Emerald and Shauntay also getting their stories told.

 

I will say this was a well written story of a true love bond between Ronan and Ruby.  So happy to see them finally getting their HEA.

A Groom For Christmas - Anne Greene

A Groom for Christmas by Anne Greene
Have read the author's other works and know this would be a great read also.
Starts out with Felicity Daniels and she's made it as far as Ft. Laramie when her father had passed away. She promised him she'd marry and continue the journey to Oregon to claim land and start a farm.
Her father's friend Jed was there to help drive one of the wagons and support her. She's determined to wed within 2 days time as that's when the wagon train leaves. She had liked Ben but he shows no interest in her.
She makes a sign and puts it in the general store window asking for a husband. She does has stipulations and she also has some secrets. Many come and leave as they are not Christians or they drink.
It's a surprise who shows up and it's even a bigger surprise who she chooses. Love the descriptions of the trail they take over the months heading west. She knows her her spouse wants to gold mine in CA and he knows she wants to settle down in OR.
He has til the splitting fork in the road to persuade her...Drastic weather and conditions, not including crossing the rivers with animals and wagons. So scary and throughout the book they each pray to God hoping they made the right choices.
I was given this review copy by the author via Book Fun (The Book Club Network) and this is my honest review

My Thoughts.... Wow, this was quite a journey of how everything comes together and in the end was worth waiting for... finally getting a HEA!  From this whole Breathless series as in this one the reader will get very well developed and portrayed characters that were for the most part believable and less not forget the hot steamy love scenes as this author knows so well how to keep our interest.

Moja siostra jest gwiazdą pop
Moja siostra jest gwiazdą pop - Kimberly Greene

Historia o nastoletniej Sam, której siostra jest sławną gwiazda muzyki pop. Jej normalne życie zostaję wywrócone do góry nogami, gdy Danni wraca po rocznej trasie koncertowej do domu. Cała rodzina jest w centrum zainteresowania reporterów. Pokazuję nam, że życie gwiazdy i jej bliskich nie jest wcale łatwe.

Książka trzyma przyzwoity poziom, a postacie są przedstawione bardzo realistycznie. Lekka, zabawna i niezbyt długa powieść.
