Finished — #CakeSounds
Say Yes to the Marquess - Tessa Dare

I really liked this. Much better than the first. Another romance where a great relationship was established before sex (well, before full on sex). I couldn't get enough of Rafe and Cleo. Their conversations and, joking, and overall silliness with each other. There were quite a few times this book had me laughing out loud. My biggest complaints were that when the sex did come it was overly long and exceedingly explicit. Of course, that things with Rafe's brother weren't squared away before they started. And that (the sister) Phoebe's upset was never fully explored as it should have been. I loved her though. I wish she'd get her own book. Though clearly she is on the Spectrum and I don't know enough to know whether that could work or not (she doesn't like touching, so. . .). She and Bruiser were such great side characters, and part of what made the book so entertaining. I'd really like for Bruiser to have his own book, too.

 

Historical romance is killing it for me lately!

7 hours in — What . . . just, what?
Rock Addiction (Rock Kiss) (Volume 1) - Nalini Singh

Heroine: I don't want to be like my mother! Pathetic and unable to be a person separate from my father. I don't want to be like my mother!
Hero: If you're going to be with me you need to give up everything to come with me.
Heroine: Okay!
Me: *deep eye roll* Idiot.

 

They've been together all of two and a half weeks and haven't done anything but fuck constantly. Nothing to indicate that they have the sort of long-lasting relationship that makes sense for her to give up her entire life and move halfway around the world. Not even the unbelievable I love yous.

 

Not to mention his "you are mine, I'll do what I want" and physically restraining her when she's mad borderline if not actually abusive bullshit. And they have one fight and she's throwing stuff in a suitcase, what even?

 

This book is freaking stupid.

 

And somehow there are four hours left.

Chapter 3/43 minutes: To flounce or not to flounce, that is the question.
Rock Addiction (Rock Kiss) (Volume 1) - Nalini Singh

How many things do I hate about this story already, let me count the ways:

 

1. So far it has mostly been sex talk. (Only some ~the heroine's traumatic past~ vagueness.) 

2. The hero and heroine seriously said pretty much no words to each other before they were off to her place to screw. (Frigging ew.)

3. The idea indiscriminately screwing randos is somehow "sophisticated".

4. The heroine is a virgin and is jumping into bed with this stranger (third book in a row with this trope, I hate it. I love stories with virgins, but not doing that. The only difference that makes this slightly better than the others is that this is a famous dude she'd been fantasizing about. Only slightly.).

5. Where the hell is the plot? (Will there be a plot?)

6. No, but seriously, there has been no plot (yet?) but we're already in an extremely explicit sex scene.

7. The heroine apologizes for being a virgin. Just, no. (At least the hero didn't get mad about it, that reaction really pisses me off.)

 

That's a lot in 43 minutes and they're not even that far into the actual having gross stranger sex. You know what would have been a more compelling story and an actual romance? Rock star used to getting any woman any time he wants finds girl intriguing, is made to wait, to his surprise falls for her, building of an actual relationship and delicious sexual tension. Why don't romance authors care about the latter two elements any more?

 

I don't know why I want to give the book a chance to hook me. That may be a mistake. Anyone read this who can advise me?

27% — This book is weird.
Ravishing the Heiress: Fitzhugh Book 2 - Sherry Thomas

I knew that this book was about the heroine, Millie, being in unrequited love with the hero, her husband Fitz, and that is what had me wanting to read it. But I was not aware that he was going to be in love with another woman. So I'm all WTF, how is this going to resolve satisfactorily? I hope it does, but I'm really skeptical right now.

 

I am loving the angst coming from Past Millie. It's so good. I'm less impressed with Past Fitz's. Maybe if he spared a thought for Millie, had a little compassion for the fact she had no choice in the matter (he at least had one) then I'd maybe feel bad for his pain. Right now I think he's being an overdramatic dick.

 

In the present of the story I'm kind of confused at how he seems to want to complete this pact when he's planning what he's planning. How has he not figured Millie out in eight years?
