Cute
The Single Undead Moms Club - Molly Harper

It was not outrageously fun like "And one last thing...", and could have done without the murder hit ass-pull escalation (seriously, what need was for that given the over-all tone?), but I liked it.

 

It was a comfy, easy read to get some smiles and dig myself out of a mild reading slump.

Sweet finish
Memory: Volume 3, How Far We Have Come, A Tale of Pride and Prejudice - Linda Wells

Rosy conclusion to this feel-good saga.

 

It was nicely done, with the end at the beginning, and through the novel, time-wise.

 

Exactly the amount of sappiness I needed to put a smile on my face.

Good Pride and Prejudice variation
Memory: Volume 2, Trials to Bear: A Tale of Pride and Prejudice - Linda Wells

This one dragged a bit compared with the previous volume for me, but it was very sweet continuation.

 

Most of the pull is in the characterization; Bingley in the first volume was my favorite I think, I just wanted to smile, hug him and give him a pat in the cheek, lol, but they are all nicely done.

 

The way love expands around, and makes everyone better, is something like a contagion, and it's either sweet or unbearably sappy, depending on you stance. As for other possible negative points, It's somewhat anachronistic where behavior or opinions are concerned, and there is a lot of sex, not always plot relevant (I mostly skimmed on those pages).

 

It was "feel good" read for me, though and I liked it.

Pilot bait
City of the Fallen - Diana Bocco

I went into it looking for a short fast candy.

 

It was all that, but I'm not convinced.

 

Beyond the issues I have with the insta-lust/love, heavy enough to make a gal betray her species, and all the hypocrisy going on here, I do not like cliff-hangers. Specially of this type, because it makes the purpose of the book little more than foundation for a hook.

I'm really liking this author
Highland Song (The Highland Brides) (Volume 5) - Tanya Anne Crosby

I'd read one Crosby before, the first o this series actually, and I remembered it as one of those rare romances that have alpha males that I did not hate, very sweet, a bit sad, and with some awesome bits of humor.

 

This was hilarious. Short, fast, and by a third in I couldn't stop laughing. Because of Cat's self-assurance and free approach to sex mostly, like this bit of her thinking:

 

He had been such a grouse at first but now his mood had lightened considerably. No longer did he brood, and she concluded that he must have needed to appease his willy. It made sense to her. A man could simply not go his entire life without a little love—and he had, she was certain because he’d had that pinched look about him of a man whose bollocks were petrified from lack of use.

 

Or Piers insistence on complimenting the roof. Or... well, you get the drift.

 

I had fun, and I'm glad. I was looking for something to clean my palate from The Sun Also Rises cynicism (I'm starting to feel stuck), and this was perfect.
