Book Review For: Bad Boss by Stella Rhys
Bad Boss (Irresistible Book 2) - Stella Rhys
Bad BossBad Boss by Stella Rhys
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

'Bad Boss' by Stella Rhys is the story of Julian and Sara.
Sara was having the worst day ever. Sara had finally given up on a job that she has been working at since she was 19 years old where she was chasing a nonexistent promotion. Sara feels nine years at that job was enough so she walked out. Knowing that she would live to regret it tomorrow she felt that she should take the next 10 hours to be free and given in to a care free attitude until the guilt came in. While on the way to meet her best friend she meets Julian in the elevator. Julian overhears her talk of getting a one night stand and having mind-blowing sex. Julian tells her that he been imagining them together since he seen her.
Their encounter was ended suddenly but weeks later they meet again. This time Julian is asking for Sara's help.
I enjoyed reading Julian and Sara's story.

Book Review For: The Demon Who Loved Me by Jessie Lane
The Demon Who Loved Me (Big Bad Bite Series Book 4) - Jessie Lane

'The Demon Who Loved Me' by Jessie Lane is book Three in the "Big Bad Bite' series. This is the story of Chloe and Kent. I have read the first book in the series but feel this is easily a standalone series.
We did meet Kent in the first book 'Big Bad Bite' but he was a secondary character with just supporting role.
Chloe is trying to help her family who is dealing with allot of issue right now. Although she is attracted to Kent she knows he is a 'man whore'. Chloe has been hurt before and she won't be getting serious about Kent...or so she thinks.
Kent does have a string of one night stands with a cut off of just three nights. Kent is looking for commitment until he meets Chloe. But can he convince her that he is the man for her.

Chaser - DNF @ 11%
Chaser (Bad Habits Book 2) - Staci Hart

Poor little rich boy. "Innocent" little country girl. No chemistry. Bored now.

 

The writing itself isn't bad, and the characters aren't unlikable. I'm just not wooed by The Life of the Rich and Useless and most of the focus so far is on Connor.

Sweet as Sin by J.T. Geissinger 99 cents
Sweet as Sin (Bad Habit Book 1) - J.T. Geissinger

Twenty-something Kat Reid is loving life as an in-demand Hollywood makeup artist. She has absolutely no interest in rock 'n' roll, but in order to pay the mortgage, she agrees to work on the set of a rock video for the world-famous rockers known as Bad Habit...which brings her face-to-face with Nico Nyx, lead singer of Bad Habit and Adonis in the flesh.

However, the fiercely independent Kat isn't impressed by the hard-living, womanizing rock star. But when Nico's model girlfriend shows up to the set drunk and Kat is tapped to replace her as the video's sexy bride, her combustible chemistry with Nico suddenly threatens to consume the set. Nico feels it, too--and becomes determined to win Kat over, body and soul. Yet behind his rock god swagger, Nico hides a dark secret. Can he rock Kat's world forever, or will he just break her heart?

Chains (Bad Witch #1) by E. M. Michaels
Chains (Bad Witch Book 1) - E.M. Michaels

Cassandra was an ordinary woman dealing with some sadly ordinary problems – having trouble in college and relationships

 

And then she starts having images of the past, running into ghosts and shapeshifters – and sprouting magical chains.

 

 

 

 

Using a novella to introduce a series can work… It can. In some ways it’s preferable – it allows you to focus on the world and the characters without having to be concerned with a long running storyline to introduce, develop and then finish properly. That can be a big ask. Usually the world building is lost as we’re dropped heavily into a big plot line that tries to take over the book without having the proper foundation

 

It’s hard to introduce a character when she’s neck deep in world saving. And if you’re then going to try and introduce metaplot as well? It’s a lot

 

So a novella without the need to introduce more than a minor plot line? That works. That lets us see the world without having to do anything too epic – which is what I mentioned favourably recently.


And I hate to play one book against the other but if that is how you use a novella to introduce a series, then this is the very opposite.

 

Quite literally – we had the world setting take a hefty back seat, character development given an attempt with very little development to make her appealing and topped off with what I guess was supposed to be an epic storyline but was so rushed, undeveloped and confused that it was almost jarring. We were setting up a big dark menace, one apparently as old as witch burning that is fixated on the main character and I thought we were going to see the beginning of several books of conflict instead of it just… ending. Why set up such a vague epic threat and deal with it so casually?

 

The story itself feel like a stream of consciousness exercise. The protagionist neither drives anything nor explores anything. She wanders around, has a weird experience in a club, wanders some more, randomly decides to go running because woo-woo then we have info-dumpy ghosts (ghosts? In another realm? Yes? No? Maybe? Relevance? Because she could have found a book, a recording, a passing Cheshire Cat – all would have made exactly the same impact on the book). She runs around with a werefox who, again, could be any supernatural creature who is fairly hot. I would say he’s a generic guide but that would require him to actually guide her instead of just wandering around with her following. The go to a spooky shop. It’s spooky. The shop keeper gives her grief about being all sexual so she can flare up but she doesn’t actually buy anything so… why is she here? Why is this scene here?


Oh and on that? I’m all for a woman owning her sexuality and resisting slut shaming – but why is she running around in leather hot pants and a midrith boob tube when going to see a guidance counsellor? That reads less like “sexual woman who resists shame” and more “teenaged cry for help.” There’s “people are slut shaming me” and “people are wondering why the hell I’m dressed like this at this time and in this place?” “Aha old woman judging me for my sexiness, I will pose until she looks away embarrassed” would be a great rejection of judging on appearance and dress if that woman’s disapproval could have just as easily as been “my gods woman do you not understand the concept of business casual?” as much as “you whoreslutjezebel.” What happens in book 2? Does she challenge misogynist standards of dress by going to a board meeting in thing and pasties? (I was going to use “meet her president” but…. Yeah, I don’t even have to finish that sentence).
