Her Boss The Alpha by K. S. Martin

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.

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?
Mayflower:The Voyage from Hell (Kindle Single) by Kevin Jackson
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.
