Reading progress update: I've read 60%.
High Heels Mysteries Boxed Set (Books 1-5) - Gemma Halliday

Book #3 in the series (Undercover in High Heels) is more silly fun, this time capitalizing on the absurdities of primetime soap operas and bringing back Felix the Unrepentant Tabloid Reporter for some actual romantic tension. I enjoyed it more than the other two for those reasons, but the woeful editing and rampant misogyny persists. Add to that Ramirez’s predictable transformation into full-on Me-Tarzan-you-Jane alpha male asshole (or “alpha-hole” as the kids say), and I think this series is actually going downhill. There’s a scene in which Ramirez basically screams at Maddie that he’s the only guy who gets to be concerned about her, and Maddie can’t decide if it’s cute or scary. Meanwhile, I’m over here yelling “Run, Forest! Run!” at my Kindle. I think I liked these people better when they weren’t boinking. Now he’s jealous and possessive as well as sexist, and she’s got the self-preservation instincts of a cliff-bound lemming. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen this episode of Law & Order: SVU before. It doesn’t end well. :P

Someone want to tell me what’s going on?” “Your brother is fucking my wife,” Armstrong says, rather loudly. Thankfully there aren’t very many people out here, and the chatter and music from the ballroom filters into the foyer with the opening of the door.
Bane’s lip curls and he claps a palm on the back of Armstrong’s neck, holding tight and getting in close. “You might want to keep your voice down, unless you’d like your nose broken again. I promise, cousin, no amount of surgery will make your face pretty again when I’m done

Shade by Jamie Begley
Shade - Jamie Begley

About 70% of this book is a retelling of Shade's Fall but this time through Shade's eyes. Only the last 30% is new material and tells what happened to our main characters next.

 

To my surprise I wasn't bored at all although I knew the story. Sure, at times I was shocked because Shade was even bigger horndog then I imagined. In previous book Lily saw only one part of Shade but in this book the reader has quite a clear picture how Shade spent his days and nights. There was a moment I planned dnfing the book but  a friend of mine convinced me to continue. She was right. I liked how main characters' relationship evolved  and Shade redeemed himself putting Lily's needs first. He was also so patient and when they were together Shade never looked at another woman again. So, finally I had warm feeling inside and a happy smile on my face

And then author had  to spoil everything writing the last epilogue. Yes, the book has two of those and the last one destroyed me. How could Jamie Begley torture her characters like that? After all they went through. How? Why?

 

My advise to you: Don't read the second one! Unless you want to cry a lot then go ahead.

 

If you want to finish with a positive note, read only the first epilogue and pretend the second one does not exist.
