World building needed help
Betrothed - Jill Myles

Thank you to Shanelle for the recommendation!

 

Started off really good with a rock and hard place heroine and dark, cold, mysterious, but standing up for her hero. Has a historical feel with setting and clothing but dialogue is modern. The world building was shaky at times and there were little contradictory things (hero has short cropped hair and then hair reaches his collar and bangs in the face) throughout. Heroine grew to be TSTL with her decision making and forced lack of seeing a character for who he really was, eye-rolling. This is first person from the heroine and I again missed any insight from the hero. 

Something interesting here but felt a raw and unrefined.

Reading Update: 30%
Betrothed - Jill Myles

Seri stared into Prince Graeme’s coldly polite eyes and wanted to laugh. Revered and beloved by all, except her cold-as-a-statue betrothed. “I am Vidari,” she protested again, the objection sounding hollow even to her own ears. “I am not Athoni. By your own laws I cannot be a citizen, much less royalty.”

“The laws of the One God are irrefutable, even by royalty themselves,” Prince Graeme interjected. “I am afraid that choice is not an option.” His flat words sounded so final.

A frightened whimper slid past her teeth. “I want to go home.”

His polite, cold smile never faltered. “You are home.”

Audio Book Review: Desperately Seeking Shapeshifter By Jessica Sims
Desperately Seeking Shapeshifter - Jill Myles,Jessica Sims

 

 

This novel is my favorite in this series. I don't understand how it went unreviewed for the last 3 years. I've reviewed most books and novellas in this series and yet my favorite one got left out for some reason.

 

I liked Sarah very much because of how strong she is even after the universe conspired against her for so long. It was also cute to find out at the end how Ramsey had always admired her from afar, even before they got 'stuck' together.

 

I adore Ramsey. He's one of my top 10 book boyfriends. Apparently I have a thing for big, buff, blondes who turn into a bear when it seems convenient. Other then that small revelation, I enjoyed how protective he was of Sarah and how understanding he was of the circumstances.

 

The ending was sheer luck, but it had me cringing so hard and I loved every second of it. Considering I listened to the audio book, I couldn't speed read through the end to find out what happened faster so I found myself respecting and liking Connor a little more. It got me curious as to what will happen between him and Savannah.

Started out promising, but slid downhill fast at the end...
Reindeer Games: A Games Novella - Jessica Clare,Jill Myles

 

Reindeer Games by Jessica Clare...from the Games Series --#4.5

 

At only 70 pgs. long, it may have been hard to make this work. It was just only Okay.  A little too contrived.  Because I really like the previous books in this series, I will continue with the series.
