Top critical review
3.5*, as this book is not as great as its prequels.
on 26 December 2009
As amazon.co.uk has provided a great synopsis of this book, and as other reviewers have gone into it in some detail, I'm not going to reiterate any of that.
This book, had I read it as a standalone, would have inspired me to search out its prequels, but having read the books in order, I found myself slightly disappointed, in as much as I did not once LOL like in the others. Yes, there were funny-ish moments, some very passionate love scenes, and the leads were well-matched, but the feisty dialogue was missing, the hysterically funny scenes and the use of humour so abundant in the previous books were too.
I do like the fact that we catch up with the leads from the previous books, and that we see Morfydd start to see that there may be a HEA for her, and we also see that Keita may be about to get her book, in which the lead is likely to be the cause of her come-uppance. I liked also how Izzy has turned into a feisty female who knows what she wants, who has stated her piece to her love-interest, leaving him on his toes til the time is right for them.
All in all, it is a decent book, but not for me a Keeper. That said, I will continue to read the rest of the series, and have started also reading this author as Shelly Laurenston.
