Until Fountain Bridge (On Dublin Street)
Until Fountain Bridge (On Dublin Street)
Price: £1.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous, 18 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fabulous short story/explanation of what happened after Adam and Ellie got together. Written in a really interesting and ingenious way too. Very enjoyable.


Castle Hill (On Dublin Street)
Castle Hill (On Dublin Street)
Price: £1.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Freebie version also available, 18 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great follow up to the original novel (On Dublin Street) but as someone mentioned in an earlier review, a bit expensive for a relatively few pages. If you're considering purchasing then consider another book from this series - Fall from India Place (also great by the way) because this novella is actually included as a freebie at the end of the paperback version.


Season of Desire: Complete edition, Seasons series Book 1 (Seasons trilogy)
Season of Desire: Complete edition, Seasons series Book 1 (Seasons trilogy)
by Sadie Matthews
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, strongly recommended (but don't bother with the other two in the series), 16 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great story and can be read as a standalone. There's a complete reversal of the usual state of things as the heroine is loaded and the hero a relatively lowly bodyguard. But what's great about this book is the real connection between them, even when it would be easier for both of them to ignore it. I loved Miles as a character and could quite easily see him as a military man in a previous life. But he's not all rough and ready, there's a real depth to him. Freya on the other hand is a bit fluffy but even with her there is more than meets the eye. Overall I thought this was a real love match and a great read. That said I would recommend you skip book 2 (Flora's story) as the whole set up reminded me of the film Eyes Wide Shut - i.e. it was really odd. Book 3 (Summer's story) is OK but still not up to the standard of book 1. I could tell you everything works out in the end (as you would expect) to save you the trouble of having to read the other two - and once you've read book 1 you'll know what I mean!


Knight and Play: 1 (Knight Erotic Romance series, Book 1 of 2)
Knight and Play: 1 (Knight Erotic Romance series, Book 1 of 2)
by Kitty French
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.98

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed all three books, 16 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fabulous series. All three books are great. After the first book, which is probably the weakest although still v good, the story picks up and the characters are more fully developed. Lucian seems very cold in the first book but as the story develops you learn more about him and realise why that's the case. You may dislike him at first but that will change as you read books 2 and 3. Likewise Sophie is a bit of a wet blanket in the first book but she gets more feisty and starts to stand up for herself more in the later books. An easy series to read, but must be read in order to get the full effect.


Falling for Jillian (Love Under the Big Sky)
Falling for Jillian (Love Under the Big Sky)
by Kristen Proby
Edition: Mass Market Paperback
Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved the whole series, 16 April 2015

Love all Kristen Proby books that I've read so far (all the Montgomery With Me series) and this trilogy is just as fab. Each is a standalone book that links together via the characters friendships and family connections. Easy to read, believable story lines and great characters. What more could you ask for?


Letting Go: Surrender Trilogy Book 1
Letting Go: Surrender Trilogy Book 1
by Maya Banks
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.99

1.0 out of 5 stars One to skip, 16 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have really enjoyed Maya Banks's books in the past, although they can be a bit shocking at times, but this one was a step too far. The 'hero' (you can tell I'm not sure) waits for 3 years before making his move(!) and then it seems like pure chance that he meets the 'wet as a soggy towel' heroine in a club (and not one where you go to dance!). Honestly the story line was so ridiculous that it really tested my patience. I only finished it because I hate when a book beats me! Give this one a miss and try one of Ms Banks's other series.


Last Call (Cocktail)
Last Call (Cocktail)
by Alice Clayton
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A great series, loved it!, 16 April 2015

This review is from: Last Call (Cocktail) (Paperback)
Loved the whole Wallbanger series, even with the silly side bar about the cat(s)! Definitely one to read in order to get the full effect. Although the main characters are unrealistically fabulous they are relatively ordinary compared to those featured in other series and for that I'm grateful! There are ups and downs and a lot of humour along the way. A really good read. And then when you're finished with Wallbanger you can try some more fabulous Alice Clayton courtesy of the Redhead series which gets my vote for probably the best trilogy ever!


Beautiful Redemption: A Novel: Volume 2 (The Maddox Brothers Series)
Beautiful Redemption: A Novel: Volume 2 (The Maddox Brothers Series)
by Jamie McGuire
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.88

2.0 out of 5 stars One to skip, 16 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The best thing about this book is the first chapter or so when the hero and heroine meet. Thereafter its all a bit unappetising. The relationship is built very quickly and for me very implausibly. Thomas is supposed to be some sort of bad ass, based on this top job with the FBI and his actions in the previous book, but he seemed to turn to mush in his own story. And I didn't like the heroine at all - did she have any redeeming qualities? Compared to the previous book and the original story of Travis and Abby this is really disappointing. My advice would be to read the other books in the series and skip this one.


Risky Game (An Out of Bounds Novel Book 3)
Risky Game (An Out of Bounds Novel Book 3)
Price: £2.59

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it and now I want more!, 3 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I agree with the other reviewers - this series is getting better and better. Am not a fan of NFL - not a clue about it actually as I'm a Brit and 100% devoted to proper football(!), but that didn't matter as the sports content, although very entertaining is quite simple to follow and I probably learnt something about American Football. Now of course I'm desperate to know if Brody's sister is the heroine of the next book - seems like it to me but I can't find any information about what's coming from this author, so if anyone knows please leave a comment!


Breaking Away (The Assassins Series Book 5)
Breaking Away (The Assassins Series Book 5)
Price: £1.49

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic series, highly recommended, 3 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love the whole series of Assassins books, and I was lucky that I didn't discover them until recently, so I had the 6 books to devour! Hurrah! This one is as good as all the rest - maybe the hero (Philip) is a bit more fabulous as he is a really good guy, once he decides to grow up, which fortunately happens pretty early on in the book. Good story, good characters and a chance to see what the stars of the previous books are getting up to, which is the great things about a series.
