Anna is done doing exactly what is expected of her. Xavier thought he was on top of the world…
It’s the first week of what I’m calling “March Mania” at Bottom Shelf. Check out the books I’ll be reviewing in the near future.
Kennedy is a veteran back from Afghanistan. What she didn’t expect to see when she got home was her husband, balls deep in the nanny. Former model Paige doesn’t just want to sit there and look pretty anymore. After her husband gambled away everything they had, Paige got rid of him and got a new life. Sort of. While coming to terms with the fact that her ex-husband is gay – and getting remarried – Lorelei is doing what she can at Fool Me Once Investigations.
Natalie is a fuck-up. She’s had a rough time in life so far. Her biological parents are both dead and she is at the mercy of her snob of a step-brother. That is until her temper gets her kicked out on the street. Homeless and out of options, Natalie makes a deal that she’s not to sure she’s ready for.
Clementine did what she thought she had to do in order to protect the young man she loved. Forced to make a choice between breaking both their hearts and leaving or staying and ruining Donovan’s life – she decided to leave. Broken hearted and with nothing keeping him, Donovan joined the Marines. Though, he never forgot Clementine, and he never stopped loving her.
I think I am being a little generous with a three star review on this one – but only because the next book has potential. Ellora’s Cave publishes erotic literature – I knew what I was getting into – sort of.
Nancy Delaney is white bread with the crust cut off. She works hard, she studies hard – but she does not fuck hard.
I started reading this not knowing what it was – not truly – I hadn’t read the blurb about the book. I read the first page and was seriously tempted to stop but I said to myself “Self (because that is how I refer to myself…) you can’t do a disservice to yourself by stopping now.
I haven’t read a historical romance novel in a long time. I got into them a while back and burned myself out by reading them all the time. When I moved on to a different genre, it was because I thought I had read them all – you know… Lord of the Manor is forced into marriage to some dotty backwoods lass – only she is not as dotty as she seems and she ends up causing some epic battle between the Lord and some other dude because she was a twit and brought about a war, etc. Well this is not that story. It is far from that story, and I can’t express how happy I was to find that out.
After a fourteen year hiatus, “Spiderman” is back and he’s targeting Lizzy – his only victim that escaped.
Shane is the strong silent type – he’s about action and loyalty. So when his uncle Joey, “The Gent,” calls him back to protect “Little Agnes,” Shane is there, expecting to find some kid – lo and behold, he finds a cranky food columnist that has somehow found herself in the middle of a deadly Mob/Government conspiracy.
