Forever My Love - Heather Graham Pozzessere

I haven't read any of the author's contemporaries and am just not feeling the urge to hunt down any more.

 

It's a second chance romance brought about by a friend of the H's being a dirty cop and targeting people he thought might know something.

 

Issues I had - H was an overbearing asshole, h all but fell over with her legs in the air. That pretty much sums it up.

 

They had divorced 3 years previous after a) losing a child to SIDS and b) her having a bad miscarriage. Essentially he decided he'd been too rough w/sex so stopped touching her so after a year of this, she filed for divorce.

 

They never really talked it over; just his demanding she sleep with him, her complying irritably, etc.

 

Ends with an epilogue where she's 5 months pregnant, they'd remarried, and the Dr had mailed results back of the sex of said kid. Seeing as how the book was released in 1990, and my "helpful" OB's technician had just blurted out that my firstborn was a boy while doing an ultrasound 2 years previous...

Didn't Like It
Blue Heaven, Black Night - Heather Graham

Elise is the illegitimate daughter of King Henry II. Sir Bryan Stede is known as the Black Knight, an honorable knight who has served his king. When the king suddenly passes away, Elise’s life takes a massive change, one that finds her in the path of the Black Knight.

I had a problem getting through this book. It just didn’t work for me right from the beginning. I didn’t like the first interaction between the two main characters and it just continued to turn me away from it from there.

**I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

Wicked Deeds (Krewe of Hunters) - Heather Graham

This book started out slow...very slow. However I eventually got into it and was glad that I kept with it. 

Of course, I’ve heard of Poe, heard some of his poems, and can even imagine his profile. But, I had never read him. Alas, I learned a lot about him in this book as he appeared to Griffin and Vickie, the latter being a new member to the Krewe team. Poe appears to both of them in this story with Vickie being the main person he speaks to. 

A member of a group of Poe fans is found dead and that starts the mystery of this book. 

I enjoyed reading this book and stayed up late to discover “who did it”. However it doesn’t rank as my favorite from this author. 

Entertaining, but slow for me to start.

Thanks to Harlequin, MIRA and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review

Law and Disorder (The Finnegan Connection) - Heather Graham

It is a good thing that this is not my first experience with Heather Graham’s work because if it were after reading this book it would be my last. Based on my prior experience, I went into this book with high expectations, but instead, I ended up being sorely disappointed.

What the story is about.
Kody Cameron returned to Florida to finalise business and personal affairs before returning to New York where she makes a living as a live actress. However, she never expected to be taken hostage by masked men searching for decades old treasure hidden by the notorious criminal Anthony Green.
Nick Connolly is seeking to capture career criminal Nathan Appleby. To achieve this goal, he infiltrated the gang that held Kody hostage. He recognises her, from a brief meeting they had in the past, as the girl he wanted to get to know better. Now Nick faces the biggest challenge of his career, taking down the gang while trying to protect Kody, her employees and the mayor’s son.

My Perspective

The Story
Now after reading the above, you must be asking yourselves what problems could I have with such an exciting premise. Well, I know you would expect a fast-paced, edge of your seat read. Unfortunately, this was not my experience and to make matters worse the romance was below average. The story lacked fluidity making it difficult to follow. The suspense took a long time to build up and by the time it did it was over.

The Characters
Kody: Initially I was not sure what to make of her. I know if I had a gun held to my head, I would pray every chance I get, instead of mouthing off to the man behind the gun. I am not sure what to call her action be it bravery or sheer stupidity. Her actions lacked credibility. However, as the story progressed, I came to admire her strength and selflessness during the hostage crisis.

Nick: Throughout the story, he remained a mystery. I knew nothing about him beyond the current situation. He made a great villain given the circumstances. He was the voice of reason in a volatile situation which

The Villains: I was not impressed by the villains especially the supposed career criminal. Some members of the gang were evidently not cut out for a life of crime. It would seem that Appleby did not call the shots in this situation. I am not an expert on hostage negotiations, but I found it strange that he would allow Nick to negotiate on his behalf, giving him the upper hand. Appleby was a big joke, half the time it appeared he had no idea what he was about.

Character development was lacking, and I had difficulty connecting with the characters.

The Romance
Not only did I not connect with the main characters individually I also did not connect with them as a couple. Their romance lacked credibility and left me with a lot of questions. I have no clue how they found the time to fall in love. Most of their interaction took place during the hostage situation and there was no evidence of any spark during this time. They went on one date then the next thing I know they moved in together and looking forward to getting married.

Recommendation
The reviews for this title were mixed. Honestly, I am unable to understand the five-star reviews. I guess the reviews were geared towards the author instead of the book. Personally, I would not recommend this book. However, I am sure there are some readers who would enjoy this title, but it just was not my thing.
