In Mood Fur Love - Kate Baxter,Eve Langlais,Milly Taiden

The first one was enjoyable. The pace was good until the very end. Once Vlad is dead and they wake up back at his parents place, the relationship that started out steady and authentic rushed like the author had to suddenly end the story. It was like the moment she was safe her personality completely changed and she became more aggressive. She came on strong and he just followed, where for most of the book, he was the aggressor and she followed. I got the feeling that the author had to suddenly end the story and in a blink she did. I would have preferred him to be the one to make the final move once she was safe. The role reversal made the whole story kind of lose it for me. And I don’t understand the whole tranquilizer part at the end on the roof. Why did her grandpa want both of them shot with tranquilizers when the danger was over? It didn't make much sense at that point and to the end.  Other than that, it was good.

Book 2 was quick. It moved fast and definitely had a middle of a series vibe.  It also has a novella feel to it, but the concept and conflict were good.  The character development was good, though some things were clearly already established prior to page one.  I liked it but I would have liked a bit more build up and a few things explained more.  I didn’t realize she knew about shifters from the beginning, so I wasn’t sure how that was going to play out. The reader definitely needs to go in knowing some things which made it hard to fall in love with, because I did feel like I was missing out on some important information.

Book three in the anthology I think was my favorite of the three.  It hadz strong characters, an entertaining plot, the conflict was believable and carried the story.  They definitely had some emotional tension to work out before they could have a happily ever after.  Their chemistry was strong and well developed and there was plenty of passion. Overall, best of the three stories all the way around and enjoyable.

Tomorrow is a Long Time by Tabitha Vohn
Tomorrow Is A Long Time - Tabitha Vohn

I wish I could say that I loved this story and it entertained me. I can't. The premise was an interesting concept but, in the end, not much different from your average love story. Very little was explained about the time travel and its possibilities. Nothing very scientific to it at all. I'm not big on romance unless there's an interesting plot line. Lots of potential here but I couldn't take much more of the undying love confessions. I never understand stories where lovers fall madly in love in a week or shortly after their first encounter and profess undying love forever and ever. Even weirder here is a young girl madly, obsessively in love with a movie star she has fantasized over her entire life and upon meeting, both feel an otherworldly pull to each other. That meeting occurs when she's twenty three and movie star guy is EIGHTY FIVE. Nah. I don't buy it. Not one moment of it. I'm sorry. It was just kind of icky. The entirety of the book was spent trying to convince me otherwise. Nope. I'm over it. Mildly entertaining.

Vinegar Girl by Anne Tyler
Vinegar Girl: A Novel (Hogarth Shakespeare) - Anne Tyler

I enjoyed Tyler's story, a retelling of Shakespeare's classic The Taming of the Shrew. To be honest, I've never read Shakespeare's version so I am unable to comment between the variation. I will say this, I was entertained and enjoyed the battle of the sexes theme. An uncomplicated story, with an ending that made me smile.

 

 

 

*I was provided with a free copy of this book through Blogging for Books for review purposes. Many thanks!

PRINCESS ZARA = DNF
Princess Zara (Illustrated Edition) (Dodo Press) - Ross Beeckman

I'm sorry, classic book. I just can't read another boring word. I'm DNF'ing this one before I poke my eyes out. I should've been able to stick it out. At only 166 pages, this isn't a long story. The one thing it isn't short on...BOREDOM. It's official. I've DNF'ed my first book of the year.

HOOKED by Allen Wolf
Hooked - Michael Allen Wolf

I found this book on Goodreads and liked the synopsis. Eventually, the book was offered in a giveaway and I was fortunately chosen as a winner. Yay, me! The book-mail arrived quickly and I opened it up immediately, smiling like a happy kid when I noticed the book had been signed by Wolf, with a lovely inscription. Then I read the first couple of paragraphs and too quickly set it aside. Sometimes moods alter my reading experience because when I picked this same book up a week later I. Couldn't. Put. It. Down. Shawn, the story's autistic protagonist, stole my heart. His honest, unfiltered opinions made me laugh out loud. His search for Mrs. Right became my search. While Shawn's choice is surprising, it completely works here. A charming book.

 

Wolf has written a story with a strong message. Faith goes a long way. There's hope for everyone. And, like Wolf's inscription in the first few pages of my book,

"Love conquers

 all."

 

 

 

*I won a copy through a Goodreads giveaway and was provided an ARC by the author. I also received a DRC through NetGalley right before winning a physical copy. Thanks for both.
