Pretty Broken Girl: An Unconventional Love Story - Jeana E. Mann

Dakota, the daughter of the cook at the Seaforth mansion has set her sights too high in falling in love with the Seaforth's only son, Samuel. This is something Sam's parents won't stand for as Sam will inherit their vast empire and it's bad for appearances if he's married to the cook's daughter. 


But Sam disavows his family's fortune and when turns 18 and is out of high school, he marries Dakota and everything seems to be a happily ever after. Except Dakota's life is super complicated as she's tackling a sick mother and a deadbeat brother who's always on the wrong side of the law. 


Before she can embark on her HEA, Sam's father pays her off to leave his son alone by giving her money and not throwing her worthless brother in jail after he blackmails her with incriminating information. Dakota agrees to abide by the agreement and never see Sam again. She leaves Sam without saying a word, and ten years pass by full of hurt and revenge for both of them. 


Now Sam has bought her company and is her new boss. It will take everything in her power to resist not only Sam's allure, but find a way out of the problems in her life that never stopped plaguing her. Will Dakota turn to Sam this time or will she run away again? 


This read started out all right, but it got tedious fast with the should we - shouldn't we - I love you - I hate you. Ugh! I really wanted to like this book, but it was just too much back and forth at something that should have been so easy to talk through.  Plus, the title is really misleading. Dakota is nowhere near broken to me. I truly expected a BDSM read and this was nothing of the sort.

With This Ring - Celeste Bradley

The cover for this book is utterly stunning and it's the only thing that kept me reading.


In the third installment of the Wicked Worthingtons, we see Elektra's story. From afar, the story is whimsical sounding - Elektra probably the only Worthington who cares about the state of the family - I mean what about  Calliope? She married well in the first book, but doesn't even send over not even an apple to help our her family SMH - and Elektra feels she must marry well to reinstate her family to their former glory.


To ensure this, she plans to kidnap the most eligible bachelor, put him in a compromising position and make him marry her. But her plans goes awry and it doesn't help matters that the Lord she kidnaps has been involved in a scandal that drove him from London and 10 years later he's finally back hoping to win his father's forgiveness and favor in his deathbed. 


So, the story  was so-so, but  I found there was just too much concentrating on the  Worthingtons and not too much on Elektra and her story. The 3 stars are merely for the cover and 1.5 for the story. So ends my travels with the Wicked Worthingtons. The next book cover is super dull and I find the Worthington family just gets on my nerves.

And Then Comes Marriage - Celeste Bradley

The second o installment f the Wicked Worthington series really missed the mark for me. I truly enjoyed the first part, but everything unraveled in the second  book. 


Cas and Pol are twins - though they are grown men they are irresponsible and only think about inventing well absolutely nothing worthwhile. They run around the brothels and spend money like there's no tomorrow, never caring after the wellbeing of their family. I'm not sure if the author meant this in an endearing way, but I found nothing endearing about this behavior whatsoever.


The twins are making their usual mayhem when a widow is struck by Pol's handsomeness. She cant get Mr. Worthington off her mind, not knowing he's a twin. 


A complex but rather dull story ensues of a back and forth of should they - shouldn't they as it seems both men fall for her. But just when I thought it was going to be a menage book, everything falls apart as they all can't figure out who should be with who. Add in a pesky clause that the widow shouldn't do anything scandalous or she'll lose her fortune and it's all one big mess I couldn't be bothered with.


I really didnt care who stayed with who as I couldn't believe how irresponsible these idiots were. I was floored they got the widow to lose her fortune and then made her live with their parents because they are such losers they didn't have a home of their own. What a waste.

How to Date a Werewolf (Rylie Cruz #1) - Rose Pressey

OMG this book has been in my TO READ list since FOREVER! I can't believe I finally got around to it, and believe me, it should have been one I skipped. 


Rylie is a werewolf matchmaker who owns and runs The Find a Mate company. She's had a great run matching people together, that is until she takes on Lily, a crazed werewolf. 


Lily is furious her perfect date doesn't go as planned and goes to unthinkable levels to show how displeased she is with Rylie (picketing her business, and making T-shirts which denounce her business as well.) 


Rylie, along with her roommate, Jennifer, brush off the threats Lily makes and instead choose to spend their time ogling their new gorgeous neighbor, Jack. 


Both Jennifer and Jack are humans, and while Jennifer knows Rylie is a werewolf, Jack has no clue about the paranormal presence in New Orleans. 


During the middle of the book we find out that in fact, the whole government knows about the supernaturals roaming around, but they choose to keep that knowledge on the down low. 


Anyhoo, what follows are ridiculous events centering around Rylie dealing with Lily, and juggling her feelings with Jack - even though Rylie's convinced of a family curse that has doomed her into never finding true love. 


Ugh! I think what upset me the most about this book was not that the situations were utterly ridiculous, but that I read through all that nonsense and there wasn't even any sexxy scenes to make up for the lost time. Ugh. Live and learn.
