Romance?
Misadventures on the Night Shift - Lauren Rowe

I really wanted to like this rockstar romance, but in all honesty, I didn't find much romance or much to like about the characters. When Abby meets Lucas, she's snarky and quick to put him in his place, and I thought that she would be a character I could enjoy reading about. However, it doesn't take long before she starts coming across as more of a doormat than anything else and when her past issues are revealed, I found it hard to believe she would have so readily accepted Lucas' offer. Instead of romance, I found a girl who is face to face with her teenage crush and rockstar used to getting his way and willing to take full advantage of a situation.

To sum it up, the more I read, the more I felt like I was reading a Pretty Woman knock-off without the chemistry or romance. In addition to that, there's the fact that the book went on for some time after the week was over, so by the time this pair did see each other again to get their happy ending, it was just too little, too late. I will add that the conclusion did have the potential for romance if it hadn't taken so long to get there, but that was blown by Lucas' comment about the many other women he's had while they were apart, which wouldn't have been nearly as bad if Abby hadn't been naked and in his arms at the time. Overall, I'd have to say that yes, the steamy scenes were quite vivid, but the story was a disappointment.

Review For: Misadventures on the Night Shift Lauren Rowe
Misadventures on the Night Shift - Lauren Rowe

Misadventures on the Night Shift by Lauren Rowe is book 6 in the "Misadventures" series. This is the story of Abby Medford and Lucas Ford.
Abby works the night shift at a hotel so that she can study and also leave her days free for law school. Night shift was thought to be a quiet shift but that all seem to change when Lucas headed to the Penthouse suit of the hotel. Nothing was ever the same again for Abby.
Abby and Lucas story was really hot! But along with being really hot it had some funny and sad parts too. This is one book you will want to put down once you start reading it!
I cant wait to read more books by Ms. Rowe and in the Misadventure series!
Loved it!

Stress & the City - Stephanie Rowe

Well...I didn't HATE it...

 

Not really a romance although there is a HEA. Also, in spite of the whole "falling in love, one laugh at a time" bit promised by the book line, not really funny.

 

The h, stress therapist whatever that is, discovers her fiance is cheating on her just before the wedding so bails and goes on her honeymoon alone. The book starts at the New Years eve party her friend has insisted she attend days after getting back (yep; one of those interfering best friends. Ever notice they're all commitmentphobes? Yet they have all sorts of relationship advice...). Friend drags her to meet two hot guys (one is the H), then abandons her with one. While she's attempting to have an awkward conversation, douchebag ex shows up, wanting her back, so she lays one on the poor guy who gallantly plays along, or is that takes over. Not sure. Great. Wonderful.

 

She finds out a few days later that he's her new client. The next 2 months are seemingly filled with her harassing him into...unpacking (he's lived in the house for 6 months, everything is still in boxes), thinking about what he'd originally wanted to do with his life (we never actually find out what he DOES do though)...and reminding herself that...he's engaged. All the while, the friend is offering advice.

 

The H...is engaged. I'd guess he's afflicted with white knight syndrome. His best friend's parents died 2 years previous so he told her he'd marry her to protect her. She was in college - I'm not entirely sure how old either of them are as we aren't told, but I'd guess late 20s and her parents supported her. In any case, he shied away from thinking about how their friendship would be affected by any of this, or the possibility of having a physical relationship with her. He was going to remain faithful (apparently it crossed no-one's mind that maybe she wouldn't if stuck in such a situation).

 

So...the friend comes in, and has the talk with him, since he was obviously too dense to take her hints.

 

At the same time, the best friend drags her out on a double date and well, double date assumed she was like her friend apparently. He takes her home, she shuts the door in his face, and smells oregano. Oh noes - an intruder. Our H had broken in and was making a pizza for her. Guess it's a good thing she wasn't armed.

 

The epilogue starts minutes before she goes into labor with twins. And there are hints that his brother and her best friend are trying hard to ignore each other by sniping.

No samples again, but clearing that folder again will resume soon. I have 5 Netgalley books to clear and then I'll settle into keeping at least 1 A-list book going while working through the Bingo folder where I have a load of back-ups for some of the squares. I might even read something besides Horror soon.
