Speed Reviewing....

Tuesday, November 26, 2013

Hello Beautifuls!

I've been reading, reading, and reading. Which is a good thing...but I've been very lazy, well too lazy to write a full review on anything I've read. And then with Thanksgiving coming up, I think I just got the case of  the "just lay around and don't do anything" vibe.

So because this is a short week and I will definitely not be posting on Thursday. Friday? possibly. Depending if I can roll myself off of the couch out of that famous Turkey coma...who knows.

So today...right now, I'm going to do a speed review of sorts. You know something like speed dating, but without the annoying men or women for that matter, lols. Alright on to it.

At the first table...

Series: The Blake Boys #1
Sex: PG - Medium Sexual Content
Author: Rhonda Laurel
Genre: Interrical Contemporary Sports Romance
In A Nutshell: Sweet romance and it was a quick read. Well written, there was also good world building that leads pretty well into the next book in the series. Character development was a little shaky, but still good. At least this jock wasn't that cocky type.

Sits at next table thinking time sure does fly. Ah, what do we have here?...a twofer.

Series: Cold Warriors #1 & #2
Blurb #1
Blurb #2
Sex: PG - Medium Sexual Content (in both books)
Author Clare Dargin
Genre: Science Fiction, Interrcial Romance
In A Nutshell: Both books leaned heavily on the sci-fiction. To me there was very little romance through-out both books. The world building was excellent, but the character development was lacking and also with the way this future world was, the romance between Caitlin & Medoro wasn't believable. Still, if you like a little Captain Kirk with you book dates, then hey go for it.

Let's finish this up I think as I sit at the last table...oh, another twofer.

Book 2 - Blurb

Book 3 - Blurb

Published: Nov 28, 2012 & Jan 21, 2013
Series: Caemdon Wolves
Sex: R - Strong Sexual Content
Author: Ambrielle Kirk
Genre: Paranormal, Interrical Romance, Shifters
In A Nut Shell: Book 2 - I loved (well I think you can see that...lols). The couple was perfect, no over-bearing alpha male and no whining butt female. World building was excellent and the character development rocked. Book 3 - *sigh* loved Jayson to death..what a man to wait for your mate for a damn decade. Arianna, could not stand her. She wanted to take control of her world...be incharge of her life, but in the end? nope! Good world builing and character developement was good too. With less of the irritating chick, I would have enjoyed this one more. I rolled my eyes alot...alot!

Well, those were my dates over the weekend and up until today. None of my dates were bad. As a matter of fact, they were all pretty good. Have you ever speed dating...erm, I mean speed read?

    Thanks...hopefully I can stick to doing them on a few more of my personals...thats if I don't get to running off at my mouth ;D

  2. Thanks Sophia :) I was just sitting there thinking of a good way to just say something about these books and walah!

    The sports romance is good & its a novella too so you'll get thru it real fast :)
