I read this book as part of my Adult Reading Round Table’s paranormal romance meeting. I wanted to pick something a bit different from the vampire and werewolf books that have been very popular over the past few years….and I came across a whole sub-genre called dragon shifting. I had no idea what to expect and overall was surprised by this book.
Sometimes a book comes along that is exactly what you think it’s going to be…like when a book is called “Rafe: A Buff Male Nanny.” I went into this book hoping to read a hot romance about two attractive people and that’s what I got. However, the actual story was pretty good and there was substance to the characters that I didn’t expect. This was a great contemporary romance that I would recommend to romance fans.
This is not a book I would typically read but when the assignment for my reading group requires a contemporary romantic suspense book, here we are. This wasn’t a bad book, but I felt the description was in accurate and in the end, it was meh.
They say never judge a book by the cover but the reason I requested an ARC copy of the newest from Tessa Bailey was due, in part, to the bright and colorful cover. I expected a fun read about 2 people falling in love with the backdrop of house flipping. While this book wasn’t anything like that, I enjoyed it and would definitely read the next in the series as well as more from Bailey.
For my ARRT meeting this month, we had to read a gentle romance—a genre that I really had no desire to read. One of the suggestions was a series of “proper romance” books that at least sounded somewhat interesting to me. Most in the series seem to be retellings of classic stories, including this one. I enjoyed this book and would read others in the series.
This is not a book that I would normally pick up–I like romances but the idea of a clean romance was not something I was looking forward to reading. Alas, when the next theme for my librarian reading round table is gentle romance, you read what you gotta read. One of the tasks we were assigned was to read an Amish romance so my author choice was obvious. Beverly Lewis is one of the most prolific gentle romance authors out there and her books check out like crazy at my library. While I can’t say that I disliked “The Fiddler” the genre just isn’t for me and I found the writing to be somewhat lacking.
Three books into this series and I think I like this one more than the previous books, but that could be due to my love for Cletus Winston, the best Winston brother (in my humble opinion.) I so enjoyed this unconventional love story and would be more than happy to see an entire spinoff series with Cletus and Jen. These books just keep getting better and better and I highly recommend it.
This is the second book in the Winston Brothers series and I can’t believe how much I enjoy reading about this family. Penny Reid does a great job of making sure you are interested in the main characters while still learning about the other brothers so you, as the reader, can’t wait to pick up the next book in the series. This book was very fun and I would highly recommend it.
I have a lot of thoughts about this book and went back and forth on my rating. This was the last title I read for my genre meeting on erotica and it definitely fit that genre. It was a quick read but there were some unsettling topics and themes that may be hard for certain readers. I would only recommend this book if you are looking for an erotic book and are comfortable with the topic of rape fantasies.
