Do your past mistakes define you forever?

 

Cruz Zaffino leaves prison after a serving a decade for a crime he didn’t commit. With his life all over the internet, there’s nowhere he can go to avoid his illicit past. Involved with one of Chicago’s toughest gangs, he made enemies bent on ruining everything he has. Nowhere is beyond their reach.

 

Every day, Rosie Marlow lives with the scars from the worst mistake of her life. It’s the one secret she has in her tiny, gossip-fueled town. When Cruz walks into her bar, covered in tattoos and dangerous attitude, she’s captivated. His rough sexuality makes her melt, and his harsh experience calls to her own broken soul. But her story is private and buried so deep, she’s never had the strength to share it.

 

She’s the unexpected light to his darkness, yet he knows she’s hiding something. Sultry summer nights in each other’s arms weaken her resistance and taunt her with the idea of forever. But as his adversaries draw close, can she love him enough to let him go?

I very much love Ms. Kay’s Paranormal Romance series, Solsti Prophecy and the spin-off Watcher’s Kiss and so when I won a copy of Record of Wrongs I decided to give her Contemporary Romance a try. For those that know me not many CR’s win me over. It’s a hard sell for me.

 

I started reading and just couldn’t get into the story or characters. Cruz’s description made him sound sexy; especially with his tattoos. I love tattoos on my heroes, but I wasn’t feeling anything for him. Rosie I couldn’t get a read on her. What is her deal? Unfortunately nothing was catching my interesting. The setting was boring. The characters, uh and so I’m putting this one down.

 

Record of Wrongs was not the book for me. If the blurb intrigues you, I urge you to give it a shot. Just because it did not work for me does not mean it won’t for you. 

 

DNF: Pg. 47

Facing the past brings a family back together
Love's Gamble - Emily Murdoch
Another quick sweet read. I have enjoyed watching this family come back together. This is Aaron's story and his hard road home. He is misunderstood but tried to live up to his reputation. Phoebe enters his life, and despite her secrets, she brings him to face his past. They are sweet together, and I loved their journey.

This is my unsolicited review for a story that I received as a gift.

The 13th Gift ★☆☆☆☆
The 13th Gift: A True Story About a Christmas Miracle - Joanne Smith

 

Ugh. Within about 5 minutes of listening to this audio, I could only wail Nooooooooooooooooooooo. I didn’t expect much from this one, so the bar was set pretty low. I expected a bit of light Christmas glurge, a memoir about a family dealing with the loss of a loved one, who found their Christmas spirit when their friends/neighbors/whatever got together to leave anonymous gifts to remind them of The Meaning of Christmas. Sounds like the perfect story to get you into the season, if you go into it without a cynical heart. I was even willing to overlook the amateur quality of the audio narration, because it’s a memoir read by the author. But I simply could not overlook its pushing my biggest button with respect to writing style, the dreaded First-Person-Present-Tense, further committing the egregious sin of mixing past tense inner monologue directly in with the present tense narration of story events. No. Nope. No way.

 

DNF at 5%. Ordinarily I wouldn’t rate a book after less than 20 minutes of audio time, but FPPT always gets a 1 star from me unless the writing and story are so fantastic that I don’t even notice it enough to be annoyed by it.  

 

Audiobook, borrowed from my public library, read by the author.

 

I was attempting to read this for The 16 Tasks of The Festive Season, square 4: Book themes for     Thanksgiving Day:  Books with a theme of coming together to help a community or family in need.  –OR– Books with a turkey or pumpkin on the cover. I don’t have any other books lined up for this task, so I might have to use my other Light Joker for it.

The Gift of Rain
The Gift of Rain - Tan Twan Eng

DNF. 

 

I tried about 75 pages of this over the last week and it is not doing anything for me for the following reasons:

 

1. This is a slow-build of a novel at a time when I am not in the mood for a slow-paced, potentially over-written story.

 

2. Although the story is set in Penang and I have an interest in the place, it seems to be rather similar to Tan Twan Eng's second book The Garden of Evening Mists, which also deals with a WWII setting. 

 

3. I have a feeling that I can guess where this story is going, and if I am right, it will be very similar to The Harmony Silk Factory. Too similar for my liking. 

 

So, I am going to set this one aside for a book that does not feel like a repetition right now.

 

No rating.
