Her Perfect Match by Jess Michaels | Book Review

Her Perfect Match by Jess Michaels | Book Review

I was anticipating Vivien’s story since I read her in the first book, An Introduction to Pleasure.  Now, reading the first chapter blew me away.  It introduced us to the depraved life of Vivien and how she has been living her life year after year after year.  The first scene actually made me empathize with her as she was trying to find fulfillment in her life.  Considering all the parties and sexual conquests, she was getting fed up with it.  We also get to revisit the previous couples of the other two books and in a way, it makes Vivien […]

After the Abduction by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

After the Abduction by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

  I am currently reading Sabrina Jeffries’ backlist.  I believe I started reading some of her backlist last year, but I wasn’t able to read any book from the Swanlea Spinster Series.  This book can be read as a stand alone however, there are mentions of the other sisters.  Unfortunately, this story picks up after Juliet gets abducted (hence the title After the Abduction, duh!) so we never get to read about how she was abducted but we do get an answer as to why. As I have mentioned, the story starts about 2 years after Juliet Laverick gets abducted […]

Then Came You by Lisa Kleypas | Book Review

Then Came You by Lisa Kleypas | Book Review

MY THOUGHTS I read the Dreaming of You first and was intrigued by Lily Lawson. In the book Dreaming of You, she was portrayed as a respectable lady albeit with a dubious past. In the first few chapters, I wasn’t warming up to Lily as I should. I thought her antics (especially the one mentioned in the first chapter) were ridiculous. However, as the story progressed, I empathized with her. The hero, Alex Raiford, is not as dark as Derek Craven (who I absolutely love) however, I think he is the perfect match to Lily’s headstrong character. I enjoyed reading the […]

How to Woo a Reluctant Lady by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

How to Woo a Reluctant Lady by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

MY THOUGHTS Giles and Minerva are the perfect pair! The third book in the Hellions of Halstead Hall series is one if my favorites. Miranda starts falling in love with Giles as a young child during her parent’s death, however, falls out of love when Giles gave her the set down in her teens. Because of this, Minerva started writing serials with Giles as the villain. Giles had to put a stop to it as she was starting to allude to Giles’ undercover duties to the Crown. Although Minerva denies her feelings for Giles, she hasn’t stopped loving him I […]

Dreaming of You by Lisa Kleypas | Book Review

This is the first book of the series that I read and I loved it. It has to be one of the best Lisa Kleypas novels that I have read to date. The premise is that Gothic author Sara Fielding, looking for more material for her next serial accidentally finds a man being attacked and saves him from certain death. This man is Derek Craven, a gambler turned businessman/owner of an exclusive London club. And so starts their road to finding love. I fell in love with Derek Craven the moment I met him. Course and gruff, he is the […]
