Some Girls Bite by Chloe Neill
Some Girls Bite - Chloe Neill

This book was so damn slow. Nothing actually happened and the characters were just weird. The main character was 27 but sometimes she acted like a teenager. Then there was her best friend, who met a man and a few days later she basically lived with a guy. Who does that?
And the Master Vampire Ethan was a jerk. I actually wanted Merit to stake him. Who dresses an unconscious woman into a cocktail dress and gives her a manicure? A pervert? A serial killer? And later Ethan had the nerve to pimp Merit. I was so mad I wanted to scream.
The only aspects of the book I liked, were the fact that Merit was reluctant to be a vampire, and the house system the vampires had. 
I'm not sure whether to read the second book or not. Tell me if it's worth the while.

My review of How the Dukes Stole Christmas by Tessa Dare, Sarah MacLean, Sophie Jordan & Joanna Shupe
How the Dukes Stole Christmas: A Holiday Romance Anthology - Sophie Jordan,Sarah MacLean,Tessa Dare,Joanna Shupe

How the Dukes Stole Christmas: A Holiday Romance Anthology - Sarah MacLean,Tessa Dare,Joanna Shupe,sophie jordan 

 

For starters, DUKES! I don’t care how many make-believe dukes have been created, I’ll read them for as long as they keep writing them. Secondly, Christmas! I’ll admit that I prefer to read dark, scary, paranormal stories during the month of October, but c’mon, who can say no to Christmas stories, specially when they are written by some of your favorite authors and they all come together in one pretty package!
And that actually brings me to say that thirdly, it’s freaking Tessa Dare, Sarah MacLean, Sophie Jordan, and Joanna Shupe, what?! If you haven’t read books by them then let me tell you, you are missing out on some serious awesomeness. And in case you haven’t noticed, I’m a super fan of all of these ladies so forgive me if I gush too much.

 

Tessa Dare’s Meet Me in Mayfair was clever, funny, and oh, so romantic. It probably is one of the most charming and memorable “date” nights I have ever read.

Sarah MacLean’s The Duke of Christmas Present is a second-chance love story. There were some serious tug-at-your-heart scenes, specially when the heroine returns “home.” It was kind of hard for me to understand the reasoning behind both the hero and heroine’s actions but once I got to the end, everything made complete sense.

 

Sophie Jordan’s Heiress Alone was another great example of how chemistry between hero and heroine affects a story, even if it’s a short one and even if the romance happens rather quickly.

 

Joanna Shupe’s Christmas in Central Park had me worrying and suffering along with the poor heroine, and had me wanting to slap the hero upside the head for acting like a spoiled brat that just had to have his way. Their love story may had been full of funny and cringe-worthy moments but the way their forgive and reach their HEA made it all worth it.

 

In short, four different settings, four different kinds of delicious dukes, four great Christmas stories, and one happy reader that recommends this set to all historical romance lovers. Even if Christmas is not your cup of tea, the romance alone make this a perfect read. 4.5 stars.

All Summer Long by Susan Mallery
Terve pikk suvi (Fool's Gold, #9) - Susan Mallery,Raili Puskar

Actually, I was kind of hoping it to be a boring story, so I could stop reading the series. It wasn't. Although All Summer Long was an easy read, it was unbelievably good.
I enjoyed the storyline. The main characters, Charlie and Clay, were smart, independent, and interesting. The book had enough romance, family drama, and also some wonderfully hilarious moments. The ending was very similar to all the other endings in this series, but I didn't care. Charlie and Clay were amazing. I fell in love with this couple. I wanted them to have their happily ever after.
Now I just have to read the next story and hope it is as good as this one. :) 
I also think Fool's Gold would be a great TV series.

A Most Unsuitable Match (Sisters of Scandal, Book 1) by Julia Justiss
A Most Unsuitable Match - Julia Justiss

A Most Unsuitable Match (Sisters of Scandal Book 1) - Julia Justiss 

 

Johnnie and Prudence's story was a delight. It had the right amount of funny moments mixed with the perfect drama. The perfect example of why I love to read historical romance. 
Prudence is a woman tainted not by her own doing but because of her mother’s reputation. Johnnie is considered the black sheep of his family and even though his reputation is not considered perfect, it’s still much better than Prudence’s because he is a man. 
Their relationship was sweet yet full of passion. He cared for her but knew that his friendship would further diminish her chances of marrying into a good family. Prudence was no innocent naiveté but always behaved with propriety, just as it was expected from her. There were lots of times when I thought society was being so unfair to her (and basically every other woman) and it sure made me glad that I didn’t get to live back then. I was happy when they managed to find a way to be together without having to give up on the things they wanted out of life. 
This book was not as “spicy” as the author’s previous series but it was definitely full of heart and tender moments, and of course accurate to its times which is one of the reasons I love this author.

Review of 'All My Life by Prescott Lane'

This book kept me up all night because once I started reading I just didn't want to put it down. It's a bitter-sweet story of love and loyalty. It's told from multiple points of views and is very well-written. It's funny, sad, romantic, and heartwarming all at the same time. It's a story of father-daughter love, love between friends, and romantic love all rolled up in one tale.

 


Mia is all grown-up and is looking forward to going off to college. However, his father's loneliness still weighs her down and she wants him to settle down with some nice lady. That's when this whole thing starts. She makes a speech and suddenly women are vying to be with Garrett. He hates it. Dating is simply not something he is good at. He has devoted all his life to Mia. Mis is the only woman who truly matters to him, no one comes before her and that is a big issue while he dates. So now that he has given up on happily-ever-after suddenly he finds himself rethinking it. Maybe the right woman is here somewhere and he just hasn't noticed her yet.
Devlyn loves Mia as much as she loves Garrett. Those two have been a big part of her life. They are both important to her and she simply can't lose them. That is why she gave up on her love. It just wasn't worth it. As long as she can be friends with Garrett and be in Mia's life she is happy. But then something changed, he changed, and now things are far more complicated than they should ever be. WIll she finally find her happiness or is she in for another heartbreak?
All the characters are great. I loved Mia, Garrett, and Devlyn. I enjoyed the story. I loved the small town setting. I loved pretty much everything about it. The only thing that I didn't like much was the unrealistic feel of it. I know that this is fiction but still it's difficult for me to digest the fact that someone can love you all their life without you loving them back. I don't think that anyone can do that. One sided love just doesn't last 30+ years (as Devlyn fell in love when they were both just kids). That's kind of hard to believe. I guess all is allowed in fiction though so who really cares. Also, let's not forget that she wasn't exactly waiting for Garrett to fall for her, she had actually moved on and was being a friend, she was still in love with him but wasn't looking for romance anymore. So, I think that's something. In any case, overall, it's a great read and I'd definitely recommend it to all sweet, sappy, romance lovers.
P.S. I received a complimentary copy of this book.
