Nero (Made Men) – Sarah Brianne

Nero

Rating: 3 Stars
Type: NA/YA
Steamy: Yes
Language: Strong

Well this book was neither bad, nor good. It was also not average. I just had major issues with it. Don’t get me wrong the book was well written, the characters well developed (at some point although a bit unbelievable but hey it’s a romance novel not a science book) and the plot was intriguing, however, what put me off was the display of sheer violence and the underlining message that apparently violence is best met with more violence. To sum up I had some moral issues with the book but apart from that readable.

Rating: 4 Stars
Type: NA
Steamy: Yes (and well done!)

Sometimes reading a book is like going on a date. I used to be always the optimist always excited and never giving up my high hopes. Lately however my book dates where like: yay excited – ok that’s not my cup of tea but let’s see how it is going to progress – please just get better – I’m begging you get better – nope getting worse – sh** I can’t believe I’m still here – someone just knock me out please – finally over – what a waste of time – I will never call you again.

I had lots of this bad book dates lately therefore I was really anxious about getting back into the book dating market. I was reading this book very carefully (like being on an actual date and waiting if the guy turns out to be a sociopath). Fortunately this was a wonderful date it gave me back my faith in going out with a book and spending some quality time.  Continue reading

Rating: 1 Star
Type: NA
Steamy: Very graphically described
Language: Lots of swearing

As far as I have understood Lynda Chance is an author to choose when you are into alpha males. Since I dig alpha males I have downloaded three of her books instantly (I love e-book readers yaay). While the first one (Josh and Hannah) was sweet, the second one (an Eye for an Eye) was … well a bit too much, this one is extreme. I love love love alpha males (think Derek Craven for those coming from the historical romance section like me, or as for YA Jace Morgenstern, Daemon Black etc), however, this guy Marco, he just gave me the creeps. His behaviour is not and I will repeat myself really often now not not not not swoon worthy. It is freaking short of making me want to get a restraint order.  Continue reading
