The Puritan Pirate (Pirates of Port Royal #1) by Jules Radcliffe
The Puritan Pirate - Jules Radcliffe

3.5 stars I think is a fairer rating. 

Everything goes oh too well for our characters. Even the most evil event leaves (physically) only bruises and sore muscles. Not that I am complaining, mind you. 


Another minus for me is the unfinished business. Killjoy, Chacal, Spanish in general - those are still loose ends. I almost wish there was less talk and love making.... oh, who am I kidding!

The Pirate & I (Devil's Duke #2.5) by Katharine Ashe
The Pirate and I: A Novella (Devil's Duke) - Katharine Ashe

Despite the name of the book there wasn’t really any swashbuckling or much presence of pirates yet the story included a bit of adventure and plenty of romance. 
I had trouble following the storyline when it started and it wasn’t until way past the middle part of the book that everything started to make sense. I think some of that had to do with the fact that this novella is part of a series and that to fully enjoy it other books in the series will need to be read first. 

All in all it was still entertaining and different what with Esme’s unique talent, the theft of a dog, and a rogue trying not to fall again for the woman he once thought lost to him.

Kidnapped by the Pirate by Keira Andrews
Kidnapped by the Pirate: Gay Romance - Keira Andrews

3.5 stars. It's not the book, it's me.
Two MCs are thrown together for a month or so, sharing a cabin. I get claustrophobic :(

Reading progress update: I've read 50%.
Kidnapped by the Pirate: Gay Romance - Keira Andrews

Two guys basically in a lock-down, stuck with each other. I like to see how enemies-to-lovers situation progresses but feeling claustrophobic-and-bored at the same time? O.o

So sowwyy...... (stars flying off) *cringe, cringe*

I want to see how a character bends and twists and changes and reveals him/herselves in different circumstances. Close quarters are too sheltered, too stagnant, imho :/

Details of the Hunt (Details #1) by Laura Baumbach
Details of the Hunt - Laura Baumbach

I just deleted my review without publishing it. I was about to hit "save" button, when I realised that there is not a single positive word that I can write here about this whole ordeal. Instead, here is a simple list of issues I came cross:

- 24 year old manchild, and not the fun Jack Sparrow or Tom Hanks (referring to movie "Big") type;


- 24 year old manchild who by some mighty miracle survived as a pirate and a captain to be 24 years old;


- hygiene;


- neglect. Because letting the poor boy run around in wet clothes, while dirty and stinky is neglect;


- commas. OMG, they are killing this story! Not there is much to kill, but they are the proverbial kick, delivered to someone who is already down :/

 

I really don't know how the two MCs survived; one as a pirate for as long as he did, the other one as a Hunter. Must be by some miracle/fairy godmother.

There were times when this book was a big deal and everyone and their cousin was reading it and loving it. It was such a hype! *sigh* What a disappointment in turned out to be! :(

 



PS I wish Samantha Cayto re-wrote it. After all, there is a potential here, it's the execution that's lacking :(
