Three Loving Words - D.C. Renee

This book made me smile cry and laugh but not in that order, I liked Paige from the beginning but Enzo took a long time for me to warm up to him even when reading from his point of view but eventually he even made me smile.
I'm a fan of marriage of convenience books and this one was no exception, I enjoyed this book from the beginning to the end but I wished that Paige didn't cry so much whenever Ezno became snarky towards her and it would have been nice to see her actually throwing something at him instead lol, I enjoyed how Enzo became unwantedly jealous towards her and basically any man she came in contact with and you could feel the chemistry between them whenever they were together in a room.
I lked how Enzo told her parents the truth about how Paige always feels like she's in her sister's shadow hence one of the reasons why she agreed to this fake marriage and I liked Nora who was Paige's sister and how Nora always had both her and Enzo's back.
I enjoyed reading how Enzo did a big turnaround and he went from being a very hateful, selfish, manwhore and misunderstood person to someone who became lovable and only to Paige but I thought she could have made him suffer more seeing as he made her suffer a lot, I liked how Paige became independent rather than living of Enzo and hi

s family's money and the nice gestures Enzo did for her made me like him more especially when he finds out the real reason behind the fake marriage, Paige I thought was a bit unreasonable then but from her point of view I could understand and it made the ending a lot more sweeter and a little funny.
I was curious to find out what happened next so I was happy to find an epilogue and I'm so pleased that it wasn't a HFN situation which I do dislike.

Let Me Go by D.C. Renee
Let Me Go - D.C. Renee

Let Me Go begins when Mason gets out of Prison after being wrongly accused of rape. He has revenge on his mind, and intends to make the person who put him there pay for what she did. Kat just lost everything pretty much. She has no money, no job, no boyfriend, no friends or family, and is about to lose her home because of no money. Down on her luck, she never expected to wake up one day and be kidnapped by a guy who states she had him sent to prison when she had never even seen him before that night. Things go from bad to worse for both of them when neither one can seem to really get what they want from the other. And they each better figure things out quickly before feelings start to get involved are all hope will be lost..


This book was okay. I enjoyed the story line for the most part, even though I sort of guessed what would happen in the end. The only thing I didn't really care for was the heroine. I felt like she was grade a stupid. Not only that she kept repeating in her mind the same thing over and over again even though the hero pretty much explained it all to her. It drove me nuts. But other then that this was a pretty interesting story about revenge, and find love in strange places. This isn't a dark romance, so you don't have to worry about that. That said, I was sort of hoping for a little bit of humor in it, but there really wasn't any of that either.

Let Me Go
Let Me Go - D.C. Renee This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

My rating has nothing to do with the writing; on the contrary, I think it was flawless. It probably has more to do with style and plot.

When I first read the blurb I thought this book was going to be a dark romance.

Rape. One word changed his life. Mason Tredwell had it all. He was a good looking, well-respected doctor. He had money, power, and friends. He never worried about finding a woman to warm his bed. But that all changed when he was wrongfully accused of rape. And now, after five years in prison and the loss of everything he cared about, he wanted revenge.

Abandoned as a baby and bounced around different foster homes, Kat Gingham never really had a charmed life. But now, things were really falling apart. She had no money, no job, and even her lying, cheating boyfriend was gone too. She allowed herself one night to cry about her situation before she picked herself back up. But when she woke up, she was no longer at home, and she was no longer alone. She was facing Mason, a guy who claimed she ruined his life. And he’s hell-bent on breaking her down, humiliating her, making her feel like he has all these years.

She claimed she had no clue what he was talking about, but he didn't believe her. The facts don’t lie.

Was Kat lying? Could she convince Mason to let her go? Or was fate playing a role in why they were thrown into this together.


I was so wrong. The first 20% seemed interesting enough to get me hooked, but then the story fell flat and I began to realize that this book is one of those that are written in that over-the-counter-romance-novel kind of way. I don't know how to explain this, but it is the kind of writing that goes back and forth between characters' thoughts, repeating scenes and convincing themselves about what's going on over and over again.

I kept reading and I found certain parts very amusing, even funny. The scenario was so unreal and weird, that I really laughed with the absurdity of it all. The whole kidnapping thing and the interactions were like a suspense film directed by Disney; the script was supposed to be serious, but the director just made it look like a cartoon.

I totally understand that I read a genre, a sappy romance and, I am not used to these kind of books, so maybe I can't be objective. The dialogues, especially the ones between men, felt like women were speaking to each other; and we couldn´t get rid of the typical misunderstandings due to lack of communication. I know a lot of women who like these books a lot, especially readers who are not into the "harder" or more "modern" novels out there. So I guess this book is more for them, than for yours truly.

The whole idea of the book is not bad at all, plotwise it had potential to become a true darker novel and I would have liked it much more. I couldn't get passed the fact, that Mason failed to realize what was in front of him. That he plotted for a long time and failed to verify several facts.

Anyway, I would recommend this book if you are into the whole Harlquin-ish type of novel.
