#BookReview: The Lotus Palace by Jeannie Lin (#HistoricalRomance)

Source: Purchased Format: Audiobook (Audible) Series: The Pingkang Li Mysteries #1 Author: Jeannie Lin Genre: Historical Romance Available: BN | Amazon | +Goodreads (Blurb/Shelf It)

My Rating
The Lotus Palace is a historical romance set in China and covers the story of Yue-Ying and Bai Haung.

Yue-Ying works as a maidservant to one of most famous courtesans at the Lotus which happens to be one of the many pleasure houses in the city of Pingkang Li.

When another man is murdered and also another well-known courtesan, Yue-Ying finds herself a sometimes unwilling participant in finding out about said murders. And then there is her attraction to Bai Haung, a young aristocrat who frequently visits the Lotus. Yue-Ying knows she shouldn’t feel the way she does towards Bai Haung but she knows there is something more to him besides his clownish act that he shows the world. And with her being a servant and her past as a prostitute, she knows that they can never have a real future together.

Favorite Character Friday #2

Favorite Character Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Adria's Romance Reviews that gives readers a chance to celebrate their favorite characters!
Why a weekly meme? Because really, with millions of books out there and more coming out every week, characters are like potato chips, you can't have just one.

#BookReview: The Truth Behind The Lies #2 by Lolah Lace (#ContemporaryRomance)

My Review

You know what?...when I prayed this weekend. I prayed to hit the powerball (that didn't happen,cos my ass still at work), I prayed my sons basketball team would win (and they did, although I’m half ass def from my baby daddy screaming in my ear...I swear I refuse to go to another game with his hollering ass). And I prayed that I would get through this story 2nd book of Truth Behind The Lies (ya’ll, I barely did).

The story picks up after Nina and Bash had a fight. She basically accused him of murdering his ex-wife and ya’ll know that did not go well. Because Bash is tired of everyone thinking he did and for Nina to even think it, well...

My Review
Well, what was possibly going to be a video review turned into a big ass nope! It just wasn’t going down and I think I possibly ruined my laptop in the process...thank goodness for warranties.

Anyhoo’s todays review will be on The Truth Behind The Lies. Now I will start off and say that this book started off hella slow for me. I just wasn’t feeling these two at all. And not to knock Ms. Lace’s writing but I wasn't moved by the first  65% of this story. I will say that I like that Nina and Bash (short for Sebastian)
