At least it was quick -_-
Wife by Wednesday - Catherine Bybee

Back in the day when I used to devour Harlequin novels, the whole "marriage of convenience plot" was amongst my favourite to read about.
The thing is, those harlequin novels?

Well they had more plot, and character development than this one! (Ah! Who'd have thought?)
And if they had some "ideas" that today would have sent me into a feminist rant, at least they had the excuse of having been written "back" in the eighties.
This one?
It was written in 2011 for crissakes!
So, let me see if I got this straight:
The woman agrees to marry the guy *due to reasons* and what does she immediately do?

Her "company", her job is immediately placed aside.
The two of them decide to get involved in the blink of an eye.


The guy has the depth of a fluffy... doughnut. A sweet fluffy _duke *snort* _ whose only downside is that he's the embodiment of the rich billionaire stereotype.

 

He's supposed to be a "player". A cad with two mistresses, but all through the book?

Immediately and completely smitten with this wife. And he sure likes to use that word _wife, my wife.

See?

Cad material. *the only thing missing would be a litter of puppies*


Her amount of confidence can be measured by a thimble -_-


Oh, and the baby issue? I've seen that nonsense before in a Jill Mansell story and I was not impressed!

for heaven sake what's with the plot _ stupid _of women piercing condoms?

(spoiler show)

 

*shakes head*


So why a two star rating?
I managed to finish it *yay*, even if I did skip some supposed "sexy" bits, because I found them _as a couple_ boring as hell.


Better to re-read my favourite harlequin novels o_O

I've Fallen Behind

There are only 2 more month left in the year 2013. Where has the time gone? Every year hundreds of people set a goal on Goodreads of how many books they are going to read that year and hope to succeed in finishing. Most finish on time, some won't. I have participated in this three years in a row, this will be my third year and I've done fairly well in past years in setting my goal and finishing them in a timely manner but this year I have done awful. I set my goal for 25 books I thought that was a reasonable number since I read 24 last year. I have read 16 books this year and I have two months to read 9 books to complete my goal. I can't finish nine books in two months I can barely finish 4 in that amount of time. I'm ether going to have to cheat and read really tiny books or knock my goal down to 20. Or I have a third option I can read a book a week to reach that goal but I don't like reading books I a hurry you don't enjoy them as much I better figure this out fast, hopefully faster then I read. LOL
