I really, really wanted to like this way more than I did. I loved the idea, love the characters but the persistent use of dialogue was a chore to wade through. I wanted more description, more scene setting and less yaking. I think if it was a manga, or comic it would have totally worked. Then I would have had more of a clue about setting and world building. As it was, this ended up a little disappointing.
One extra star for creative use of berries.
Seriously sweet. Like an entire bottle of golden syrup. Plus a total hankey fest. 4.5 because Jus was a bit of a douche at times and acted like a tool.
I often find ménage a difficult read and that they re just not quite real enough. This one however was just perfect and ticked all my boxes. Enjoyed it much.
My thoughts on this book/series in no particular order.
This book has all of the tropes - amnesia, misunderstanding, terror plots abound, aloof billionaire, half blind dog and cute redhead kid. It is expensive, although a dollar less on Amazon and there is the odd editing error. Sometimes it seems like a stream of consciousness and kinda rambly. They never use lube and have never flagging junk. Ever. Ouch.
I should be rolling my eyes and scoffing at the ridiculousness of this series of books. But I've been immersed in it for a good week now and I am crushed the next book is not even out. It is bananas and I loved it. If you enjoyed the Special Forces series and have maybe delved into The Foxhole Court and like big, long rambly epics, then read it. You'll not be disappointed, only perhaps a little confused about why you enjoyed it so much. :)
This is like crack for me I'm afraid. Despite bonkers plot twists and OTT ness I'm in total like/love. There is no hope for me.
This totally jumped the shark in places, but I really enjoyed it anyway. These guys seem to lurch from crisis to crisis, interspersed with some superbly written sex scenes. Marvelous. :) 4.5
Really enjoyed it. Bit like reading online fan fic maybe? Just long, bit of a choppy story but thoroughly enjoyed. Onto book 2, as book one ends on a cliff hanger. Not my fav trope.
Hate US cover. It's really bugging me. Heh.
the book was good, but did seem somewhat similar to book 1. Concerned he has a formula. Will see how I go with book three, but it's not looking good. I do think they're well worth trying though.
Read this over the christmas and new year break. Liked it a lot. Police procedural crossed with urban fantasy. I prefer the Britsh cover and title. No idea why they need to change it for US market.
Question: do I get it NOW from smashwords or do I wait for the Amazon link and use my gift cards.....
