Ho-hum
Don't Tempt Me - Lori Foster

Ooh boy, what to say about this one? To be honest, I just want to say, lacking effort. Foster's writing is a bit like Shalvis with its easy readability and tendency to stick to a formula. It's a formula I greatly enjoy but this one, especially with the main couple, felt completely uninspired. 

I don't feel like I really grew to know the hero at all and both the hero and heroine came off a bit ho-hum. I got way more from the secondary couples and especially the secondary romance, in which about 30-40% of the story is given to. 

As the first in the series, the series baiting characters stole the show more than once and even though I really liked the secondary couple, it seems their romance is resolved here, I really wanted them to get their own book. 

This felt rushed, squeezed in, and the main couple was uninspired. Looking at the second in the series, it looks like Foster continues with the two couples format. With books that are around 300pgs, I sometimes don't find that long enough to fully flush out a romance to my liking, adding a second couple makes the story feel more like two novellas smashed together. I can see people who want more of shorter, quicker romances liking these better. 

The half star is for the German Sheppard doggie that comes in towards the end :)

His Name Is Justice
Hard Justice (Body Armor) - Lori Foster

Not gonna do one of my long, in depth reviews for this one 'cause really, I just read it for the giggles. 

 

I really enjoyed this one. Like I said, not normally into romance but when I do read them I prefer them overdramatic and silly. This one fit both the bills. So many points where I laughed and just HAD to text a line to my friends 'cause it was just so ridiculous. It's a decent plot, a cute story and a quick read. And, as a romance novel, it was delightfully steamy and romantic. 

 

That said, Lori Foster is not allowed to use the word "hard" every again. You could turn it into a drinking game how many times the word was said. 

 

This was such a fun read. A nice break from the more serious novels I've been reading. 4 out of 5 Stars.

Hard Justice (Body Armor) - Lori Foster

I don't normally read romances but this one came through at work and I found it so delightfully funny that I had to read it. So far it's not disappointing.

In Too Deep - Lori Foster

Sort of wonder how this landed in the Blaze/Temptations line - one whole sex scene and it was eh.

 

I was wondering in the beginning if this was going to be a hate read, but not quite. More of an irritated and/or bored read. The H spent entirely too much of the first chapter or two thinking uncharitable thoughts about the h, from her apparent lack of a bosom to her unwillingness to let a total stranger tell her what to do. Made it a little hard to believe that he got turned on by her in any fashion more than the "haven't had sex in months" sort of way. But we're supposed to believe that he fell in love with her in spite of her lack of decorum or figure (or unwillingness to let a total stranger who managed to get her kidnapped in the first place with his misplaced chivalry - he managed to draw the attention of the bad guys to the fact that she was a girl).

 

So this was more of a yeah right whatever sort of read.

Review For: Murphy's Law by Lori Foster
Murphy's Law - Lori Foster

'Murphy's Law' by Lori Foster is book Two in the "Law" series. This is the story of Ashley Miles and Quinton Murphy. I haven't read the previous book so for me this was a standalone book. This book didn't cover the meeting of Ashley and Quinton...so I assume that was in the previous book. Also know that this book was previously released around 2006. This new version does have a new cover on it too.
This was a sweet romance with a determine man (Quinton) who seemed to know what he wants. A women who thought she knew what she wants but Quinton is slowly changing that. This does have some drama with someone who is after Ashley...but Quinton is trying to keep her safe.
"My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."
