Bad Boys and Billionaires (The Naughty List Romance Bundles series Book 1)
Bad Boys and Billionaires (The Naughty List Romance Bundles series Book 1)
Price: £0.00

5.0 out of 5 stars this, 9 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I gave this whole compilation five stars just because of ONE story. 'the last Lord of the Moore' by Isabella Brooke is the only reason I can recommend buying this book for.
It's a contemporary story with no shifters, no magic but a feisty main character. It's very modern and yet beautifully nostalgic. Set in a rural community in Cornwall it concentrates around the issue of... broadband. Of all things. If you liked Hot Fuzz on TV you gonna love it. And the Lord? Well, when main characters finally get together in bed he farts in the morning. Not romantic at all. But how very normal.


To Love (Vampire Assassin League Book 21)

Price: £0.77

2.0 out of 5 stars good read but predictable and too simplistic if you are familiar with the series., 9 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like this series. I used to love it but after fifth instalment I realised that it's all the same plot just with different names and settings. Boy (or rather vampire) meets a girl, or on few occasions the other way round. She is his true mate and wakes his body up making heart and other vital body parts work again. She struggles initially but they have great sex. She usually has some misgivings but Hunters get involved and she realises what is important. Love. More great sex, the end. In this instalment there aren't even hunters so it's pretty boring. The best thing happens with Nigel and Acron on last two pages. It's worth reading just for that.
And calling a 32-years old a cougar for a relationship with a 24 year vampire who is a vampire for last 700 years is just rude.

4.0 out of 5 stars it's not you usual love story but definitely worth reading, 9 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Michaela (Kindle Edition)
The angle author has chosen, a boy/girl character raised in a strictly religious atmosphere, is very brave. If extended and more worked on, it could become a really serious book asking some very important questions. As this is a sexual romance, the meaning is slightly lost. I was left thinking of I was reading a psychological story or a sex novel. Definitely not for those looking for an easy read. But all books from these series are like this.

Hearts on Fire 1: Serefina [Hearts on Fire 1] (Siren Publishing Menage Everlasting)
Price: £2.32

3.0 out of 5 stars good storyline, believable characters but it sex gets too severe too fast., 9 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like steaming sex. Hunky men, ménage and firefighters? Count me in. Plot is believable, characters likeable and feel real. Unfortunately it all gets too serious too fast. This a problem with the whole series. Girls are extremely innocent, usually virgins or near-virgins (after one or two intercourses) and they get into heavy ménage sex, including anal, on first date... Come on, that's a bit far fetched. Otherwise, very good reading.


Fury (New Species Book 1)
Fury (New Species Book 1)
Price: £3.86

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful storytelling., 9 Nov 2014
This book surprised me. Some books of this genre use the storyline as an excuse for sex, but it's not the case with this one. It has both: story and sex. Emotions are real, main characters well defined and convincing. Plot is believable and book can be read as a standalone as well as a part of a series. I actually cried several times. And spend night reading instead of sleeping, but I don't regret. It was entirely worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars really good book, 8 Oct 2014

It is rare to find a fantasy book, let alone a romance, that makes heads and tails. This one does. Funny, credible and well thought. Will read more. Many more.

1.0 out of 5 stars annoying editing, simplistic plot and and not credible storyline, 25 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book should be called a work in progress and not a finished product. Action moves way too fast making it totally non credible. Dreadful editing (mixing of names in dialogues, convoluted descriptions and overly complicated sentences) add to feeling of overwhelming disappointment.
Author needs to extend the courtship section or shorten waiting time for mate. There is no way that sb will stare at someone for a year without a word and than go straight to bed. And what is it with not knowing your boss's name after a year of working in an office next door to his?!
Too many logical mistakes. Not worth purchase unless at least one hundred pages are added.

2.0 out of 5 stars Funny but reads a bit like a CV., 19 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Since showing two fingers to her colleague at the House of Lords ninety years old Baroness Trumpington became a household name. I saw her on 'Have I got News for You' and fell in love with her wit and quirkiness. Her autobiography, unfortunately, although fascinating and interesting, reads like a dry CV. It would have been much better if she have had used a ghostwriter. I'm usually agains this practice but in case of baroness Trumpington it's a real shame she didn't. Her life story needs much more than just facts but also some colour, background and just a bit of, eeee... life?

Price: £1.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Short, to the point and informative. what do you want more?, 19 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It might be on the short side but this book is full of interesting facts, anecdotes and descriptions of times and adventures of Mayflower's passengers. It debunks some myths and confirms others. My only problem was lack of clarity when Pilgrims and Founding Fathers were defined. From that moment on it took me some fourth pages to finally get about whom am I reading. Some editing badly needed but that's it. Rest was pure pleasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh man, what a read! And it comes from a blonde detesting F1., 7 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Light tone, brilliant commentary and memorable quotes, mixed together with an enormous knowledge make this book a must for anyone. It allowed me to understand why some people are fascinated by F1. I still don't like it, feel it's boring (opinion shared by many fans) and over-hyped. But now at least I understand why. I found myself laughing a lot while reading this book.
