Tired and Alive

Yo, guess who's still kicking! I'm actually alive, amazingly enough. I got rather hung up with finding a job though, found one, and became totally consumed in the process of moving. :l Not to mention changing address, hoping I qualify for food stamps and medicare/cal and the like is totally consuming my time and energy.


So, basically, I've been super busy and have had no time for booklikes. Forgive me, but sadly I'm only human.

The Rogue's Kiss
The Rogue's Kiss - Emily Bascom

My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts as I went with the book...

I have been meaning to read Emily Bascom’s The Rogue’s Kiss, book 1 of the Westhavens series, for quite a while now. And now that I’ve read it, have to say I’m quite disappointed. If it wasn’t the writing style, it was the lead characters that drove me bonkers. I never quite connected with Christopher or Kit and Roisin, neither did I feel their attraction to one another.

The setting is in the early 1740s. Roisin, who recently lost her Earl of a father, is in London for a season that basically her mother wants much more than her. Roisin is not really Irish, though they’ve made a home there. Ireland is more her home than England. She loved spending time gallivanting around their big estate with her older brothers. And this, her mother can’t stand. She wants her daughter to have a season, grab a husband and become a true lady, once and for all. But Roisin... well, she’s headstrong and right now, sitting in this shabby old inn, she feels bored and miserable, while her ancient chaperone doses in the other room. So she makes a plan to escape and return to Ireland. Silly I’d say, but that’s how she meets this highwayman, Ewan MacHamilton, who accosts her hired carriage bounding through the lonely road in the middle of the night.

Mafia Captive
Mafia Captive - Kitty Thomas

Apparently, Kitty Thomas's stories aren't for me. I picked this up when I was still absolutely buzzing from another mafia-themed erotica and thought why not this one since I had this on my TBR for long? Then I spend the whole time trying to like anything about the storyline or the characters, over and over again. Unfortunately, there was nothing that I can recommend about this book. The story had no rhythm or rhyme, and the characters, especially the 'hero'... Oh boy! No thanks. I don't like to think myself as a prude but he had no redeeming qualities IMO, especially the OW situation was grating on my nerves so much that at times I wanted to kick on his nuts!!!!



Aka his other subs that he'd bring in his home, and engage with, to taunt the heroine... also that one particular crazy b*tch I couldn't stand at all.



Maybe I just expected way too much.

Prisoner of Desire
Prisoner of Desire - Isadora Rose

My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts as I went with the book...

I’ve never read anything by Isadora Rose before, so when I went into this, I thought, oh ok, short smut. Yet it doesn’t even begin to articulate the ‘sexual violence’ that was cautioned in the blurb.

Don’t think I can even explain just how disturbing and disgusting I found this story. It’s not that I’m a prude, or that I don’t read dark erotic stories. Few, but I have read those. It was not even the writing of the author... Everything about Prisoner of Desire ticked me in the wrong way. Don’t expect any delicious mindf*ck, cause there was none. But if you’re expecting abuse, abuse and more abuse by a jerk, you’re in for a treat!

Driftwood Deeds
Driftwood Deeds - Laila Blake

My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts as I went with the book...

I seem like the odd bird who didn’t like this story. Before going into Laila Blake’s Driftwood Deeds, I read some reviews that were very positive. This led me to hope for a rather intensely sexy read because I hadn’t read any book by this author before. Unfortunately, I didn’t enjoy the story or the characters that much.

Let me start by saying that Laila’s writing is marvelous. She has a rather whimsical narrative style, her perspective making you notice and experience things in a different way. I liked this about her writing. Driftwood Deeds is a short story, yet it took me quite a while to finish it because since the moment the hero Paul is introduced, things kinda started going downhill for me.
