Katharine Ashe - I Married the Duke

On the way to marry a prince in a castle, a lady should never:
1. Bribe an infuriatingly arrogant and undeniably irresistible ship captain,
2. Let him kiss her senseless on a beach,
3. Battle thieves at his side,
4. Exchange wedding vows with him, even under the direst circumstances.

But daring, determined Arabella Caulfield isn’t just any lady. And Luc Westfall is no typical ship captain. He’s the new Duke of Lycombe, and to defeat a plot that could destroy his family he must have an heir. Now he knows just the woman for the job . . . and he’s not above seduction to turn this would-be princess into a duchess.

Comment: As you know, recently it was my birthday. This book was one of the gifts I got, one of my book lover's friends picked this one because I like historicals. I had never heard of the author before, so it was really a surprise she could offer me something there was never on my radar.

This story features Arabella, she's the middle of three orphan sisters who have listened to a Gypsy telling them about their origins and if they wanted to know more about it, one of them had to marry a prince. But not any prince, it had to be the right prince who would recognize the ring their mother left with them, the key to finding out who they are.
Once grown ups, the sisters, in particular Arabella, really want to know where they came from. Arabella is now a governess, as the orphans were adopted by a Reverend so their life wasn't luxurious by any means. Arabella wants to travel to meet a prince for she will be his sister's teacher for a while. To do so, she tries to convince a pirate to let her go in his ship, but he only agrees after realizing how sincere she is. The travel is full of adventures and secrets but when Arabella reaches her destiny, will she still want to marry a prince? What about a mere duke?

Well, I have to say this story started quite good. I liked how Arabella stood up to her beliefs and honor and defended those in need I liked her character immediately. Then the hero comes up, he's a duke hidden as a pirate for reasons concerning his possible estate which is in the hands of someone he despises and who might want him dead.
The two of them are attracted to each other and as the plot moved along to the ship I envisioned love developments which would tell us they would fall for each other on the trip. Once they arrived Arabella's destiny their relationship grew and then..everything changed.

Really, I wasn't sure what was happening. I won't go into spoilers, but honestly, the happenings after they got together for the first time got weirder and weirder.
I thought this was supposed to be one of those normal historical novels, but there's a lot of strange things happening after they act on their attraction. They are attacked and forced to marry because the hero is in life danger. Then there's the prince and Arabella doesn't feel a thing for him (obviously). Then the hero's cousin is weird and aparently not very clear to be understood making decisions which don't seem very clever.
Then the heroine finds out about the hero's origins and true title and it starts a sort of bipolar behavior, where she gives in to him and the feelings between them, and suddenly she is like a martyr ready to be cold forever. Really, this story got really weird.
Then the truth about the villain's tastes.
Then the truth about the hero's younger brother's past and why he runs away all the time.
Then the constant changes in heart from both protagonists.
And so on...

After all the weirdness I just went with the flow and wasn't particularly surprised how the heroine loves the hero despite all and tried to save him, whereas he is the one ending up saving her and he got injured but in the final battle we learn it wasn't so simple.
I think this was successful for the first half, more or less, but went downhill from then on. The character's behavior wasn't always believable, the personality they showed wasn't that deep and solid either and the hero's cousin was really enigmatic but not in a good way, which we never know why anyway, so...
The solution isn't complicated but it has some drama which is interesting enough but certainly doesn't change the fact the main couple isn't on the same tune or page most time, so I can't really say I liked them together.

In the end, this book offered many interesting ideas, possibilities, but the execution and final delivery wasn't as good as I expected or as well done as it should.
I appreciate the effort and a good first half, but the inconsistencies, Arabella's different takes on things all the time and the fact this novel had way too many elements - and not all working well in synchrony at that - kind of disappointed me, thus the positive grade but closer to be graded down than up. Oh well.

Samantha Young - Down London Road

It has always been up to Johanna to care for her family, particularly her younger brother, Cole. With an absent father and a useless mother, she’s been making decisions based on what’s best for Cole for as long as she can remember. She even determines what men to date by how much they can provide for her brother and her, not on whatever sparks may—or may not—fly.
But with Cameron MacCabe, the attraction is undeniable. The sexy new bartender at work gives her butterflies every time she looks at him. And for once, Jo is tempted to put her needs first. Cam is just as obsessed with getting to know Jo, but her walls are too solid to let him get close enough to even try.
Then Cam moves into the flat below Jo’s, and their blistering connection becomes impossible to ignore. Especially since Cam is determined to uncover all of Jo’s secrets... even if it means taking apart her defenses piece by piece.

Comment: I was very curious to read this book. After my enjoyment of the first in the series which had such a divided range of opinions and that, to me, was quite good, I was interested in seeing if this one was as good or would fall into the sort of opinion those who didn't like it, shared.

This is Jo's story. She is one of Joss' co workers at the bar ans she struggles to keep her family afloat. She takes care of her younger brother and their alcoholic mother. She fears what other might think of her is she says what really happens at her house. She works two jobs and prefers relationships with wealthy men so she can help her family somehow. Everything seems to be the usual in her life until the night she meets Cam, her boyfriend's ex new guy. She and cam feel the attraction but they don't seem to get along. But once Cam moves to her building, it will be more difficult to avoid him and what he makes her feel...

I think the author wanted the reader to purposely feel antipathy towards Jo in the first book. She came across someone who dated for money and was unapologetic about it.
Now we understand what's behind that behavior and why she tries to do things others judge her for, because deep down she is a good girl trying to be there for her brother and if she feels embarrassed about her mother's attitudes, who can blame her?

I was really impressed with Jo in this book, I think apart from the whole dating someone mostly for what presents he might give her, she never asked though!, I actually think she was doing what she could and I feel I might do the same if in a similar situation. She works two jobs and she lives a very tame life, except the boyfriend's occasions, but I could understand her motivations and as the plot moves along we even see why he acts like that, why she needs to feel some sort of security and why her turning to men started and why she keeps it like that.

I also liked how we see so many recurrent characters from the previous book and even new ones coming in which will feature in the following books as well, and there's this sense of family, Jo learns to trust others, to find support and friendship in those close to her which proves she is worthy and has all the right to be herself with them, instead of showing what she believes others would want to see. I liked who Jo is in reality and was very glad to see her journey too.

The romance is hot and starts with a believable chemistry and there's lots of sexual tension before they got together. They don't seem to get along at first but it's all part of the whole "I shouldn't like you but I can't help it" stage. I thought the development between them was believable and full of twists and special moments and honestly nothing seemed off. Sure, I'd change things here and there to suit my tastes, but overall, I think it was done quite well.
Some readers think this is too sexual. This meaning the books from the start. I don't think so, I like the balance and despite the hero being a bit aggressive at times, I never thought he wasn't a good guy, he shows he is throughout the book.
There's two or three conflicts, one of them I think was there to prove a point and push a discussion, but in the end the HEA is believable and wasn't overdone, I liked how Jo and Cam started a life together like millions of ordinary people must do out there.

All in all, another successful book for me by this author and I do plan on reading the next ones soon. For me, these stories work and I had a great experience reading this one.

Piper Kerman - Orange is the New Black

With her career, live-in boyfriend and loving family, Piper Kerman barely resembles the rebellious young woman who got mixed up with drug runners and delivered a suitcase of drug money to Europe over a decade ago. But when she least expects it, her reckless past catches up with her; convicted and sentenced to fifteen months at an infamous women's prison in Connecticut, Piper becomes inmate #11187-424. From her first strip search to her final release, she learns to navigate this strange world with its arbitrary rules and codes, its unpredictable, even dangerous relationships. She meets women from all walks of life, who surprise her with tokens of generosity, hard truths and simple acts of acceptance.

Comment: I got this book because it is the book of the month at one of the book clubs I follow on line and I was curious to see how it would be like, considering the theme.

This is a memoir book about Piper Kerman's experience in prison. Although everyone can say if they enjoyed the tale, the fact is, this was something that happened to her and the way things are told, says that. This isn't a romance meant to make us sympathetic and wishing for a HEA, although we always build up an opinion based on what we read, so...
This book shows Piper's actions that led her to be in prison and how she lived there until the end of her sentence.

I liked the book. I think it can be easy to judge when most of us readers haven't had the same experience so can we really argue saying she shouldn't have done this or that while in prison? We can't compare it to anything else, because prison isn't like any other place on earth. The rules of society might mesh but the whole concept follows their own rules.

What we can judge because we are humans are the things Piper did which got her in there in the first place. Justice is slow, so I wasn't really surprised it took so much time for her to be sentenced, but what she did was wrong. It's something so unlikely what any reasonable person should do that I can't find sympathy towards her, not totally. Sure, I wanted her to do well in prison and not having a hard life. But I agree the issues of imprisonment and how the system deals with the different kinds of convicts eaves a lot to be desired.

Throughout the book, with more emphasis towards the end, Piper discusses the issues in how prison affects society and economy and how in the end it's not always the best solution for those who don't have a good support system to go back to. In a way I agree, prison should be a place where the one in there should think and work to accept the wrongness of one's actions and how not to do it again. But as with most punishments, it doesn't always reach the goals of redemption. According to Piper's descriptions and experience, the state of mind in which someone lives  the prison time isn't the same for all and can heavily influence the outcome of the whole thing. An example is Piper herself, the took the punishment for what it meant and she learned her lesson but had family to help. Many prisoners don't.

The book is divided into chapters and all focus on some part of prison life, in a more general continuous line, meaning we follow Piper's state of mind from when she entered until she is told she is free. I liked all chapters and how she had to deal with surprises an how there's this whole hierarchy to understand. Still, I got the feeling things weren't that radical because she was in a minimal security facility. I wonder what happens behind the dangerous prisons doors and how much mind control one has to bear to endure years in it.

My favorite thing was how Piper learned the tricks to have a peaceful existence and which traps to avoid. It's tricky and like she said, she had to be in control in there.
Of course, we can point out that her race and back up economic situation helped her to be successful, but I want to think it was also due to her own feelings of doing the right thing after bad choices. It's wrong to have anything to do with drugs but she was sorry and paid her due. In a way, that was redemption to her so all the moments she describes in the book are one step closer to be a better person in the future.
Realistically speaking, obviously this doesn't happen to all prisoners and the good results numbers are probably low.

In the end I liked the story, I enjoyed reading and didn't feel overwhelmed with the lesson learning vibe some readers felt this was preaching to. To me, this was a good story, interesting scenes from life in prison and the relationships those in there forge and how that is the world to live for.
Of course it isn't perfect, personally didn't like much the way the story ended, I'd have liked something from Piper's reconnection with those she shared prison somehow, even if just to say she wrote them or something. Still, lives come and go in prison...
For me, this story worked and was enjoyable, entertaining and morally balanced.

Annmarie McKenna - Court Appointed

After receiving several suspicious “gifts”, His Honor Jackson Benedict is assigned an agent for protection. He’d be fine with a bodyguard…if he was anyone but the man who enters his courtroom looking hotter than any man has a right to look. Thank God Jackson’s robe hides his interest.
Trey London is more than happy that Jackson has practically been handed to him on a silver platter. If his job requires he stay close to one of the country’s youngest federal judges, it’s no skin off his back. The closer the better, actually.
But someone else is getting closer, too, and when the gifts turn into attacks, Trey is forced to trade his status of new lover for that of protector. He’s not about to let anyone come between him and his judge.

Comment: I've got this book to read for a long time. The idea seemed to have great potential for a good romance based on the blurb alone. Although it is a short story, I had high hopes for it.

The story features the young judge Jackson Benedict who has been the target of several threats and Trey London, the bodyguard who will protect him until the bad guys are caught. There seems to exist some sort of attraction between them, but Jackson's position doesn't let him risk anything on a whim. And would Trey mean it if they got involved?

So, the book started pretty well, actually. We see how Jackson reacts to Trey's presence and how that affects him and I thought this would be one of those stories where they have always felt something about the other but never got to it until one day it was enough. This seemed to be the norm, and the first scenes were interesting until I figured they would jump into intimacy very fast. 
Now, I get it this is a short story so time is running fast, but one thing is to see the effect of time on a mutual attraction finally coming to term and another is to be told all that and then to see things move so fast. I didn't like the way the story was told. From the first interesting scenes we only see them run from the court, to have sex, to meet the parents, the threat is discovered and that's it. 

Once again, I know the story has a limited time to be developed, but nothing seemed to work well enough. I wasn't convinced about the guy's feelings despite they saying it has been a long time coming. I didn't get convinced of their feelings because they seemed to focus a lot on the sex part, so even if there was any true connection, I wasn't shown that, only that they got along, were attracted and their parents had different takes on them being together.

I don't think the most important issues in the story were developed right, or maybe the way the story was meant to be developed wasn't the right one chosen by the author. The way things are, it gives he idea we are meant to know more about everything, when in fact, we don't.
The reasons for the bad guy to threaten Jackson are simplistic and unlikely and too much work for not enough motivation. Weak let's say so.
The way some characters dealt with the guy's relationship seemed to be purposely antagonist. I don't know nothing seemed real, all was rehearsed and withe the fake vibe.

In the end, Jackson and Trey had everything to work out and in a more careful story or something it might work well. But as things are, the story not only didn't work for me, but it felt most of its possibilities weren't took to the best goal. My opinion, of course.

Sherrilyn Kenyon - Inferno

Nick has his driver’s license and he’s not afraid to use it. But turning sixteen isn’t what he thought it would be. While other boys his age are worried about prom dates and applying for college, Nick is neck deep in enemies out to stop him from living another day. No longer sure if he can trust anyone, his only ally seems to be the one person he’s been told will ultimately kill him.
But life spent serving the undead is anything except ordinary. And those out to get him have summoned an ancient force so powerful even the gods fear it. As Nick learns to command and control the elements, the one he must master in order to combat his latest foe is the one most likely to destroy him. As the old proverb goes, fire knows nothing of mercy, and if Nick is to survive this latest round, he will have to sacrifice a part of himself. However, the best sacrifice is seldom the sanest move. Sometimes it’s the one that leaves your enemies confused, and you even more so.
And sometimes, you have to trust your enemy to save your friends. But what do you do when that enemy is you?

Comment: This is the fourth installment in the Chronicles of Nick by Sherrilyn Kenyon. To be honest I wasn't that eager to read this but some friends, also SK's fans, have convinced me so I gave in...

In this book, Nick has to deal with school, apparent friend's betrayals and the knowledge you should be the person you feel you are, not what other make you do or what you think others want to see. In the middle of many adventure an ricks, can Nick be true to himself?

What a mess this book. Really, there are so many people and so many details to bear in mind....
Nick is a teenager but we also get glimpses of the possibilities from the past where things weren't changed and from the future where things might reach. But there's also the one from the future which is actually the past where we know he will end up...so, so tricky to maneuver!

The the cast, well, there's Nick, there's the friends he has whom we know (if we read the DK series), there's the friends he has now because of the whole time messing around and there's people we know will be important, there's the people who never showed up but now are here, there's the people we never imagined existed but apparently are key figure here...

To summarize, the place where things are at the moment in this spin off are so tricky, so confusing and weird with new things new people and new turnabouts all the time, not only is my head fuller, but it gets more difficult to follow the connection all the time.

After persevering from the previous books, Nick is at a point where he needs to learn lessons in order to stop his future self to become evil. This is the biggest issue here for what I can tell. The best way to do so is to avoid temptations and distractions that might make him change who he is. Teenagers aren't known for their certainty of anything even when they do say so, so this part annoys me.
Really, if not for the fact the things happening in this spin off might induce change into future DK books I wouldn't read anymore. But seriously, then what has been the meaning of the previous DK books about this issue? Meaning Nick and his problems affecting the time line and the plot. Once again, what a mess!

Good things about this book, well, we get to see happy times between Nick and Ash. We get possibilities about how hopeful it is to dream of better times for the future books and we finally learn more about some characters and who they are. Although that also makes me more confused because one of them is actually offspring of someone we know but we never got a clue and how is that possible if no one ever mentioned even the possibility? Really confusing and odd.
Then something major happens at the end which will certainly have influence in the future..but how and why did it happen now? Mysteries...

The end of the book is very cool in terms of adventure and action scenes, but - again - it just entails possible situations which don't seem wise or easy to deal with in terms of making all this look right or closer to any sort of conclusion. Frustrating...
Plus, I just saw the series - which I thought would be about 9 books - on Goodreads and the indication there is 15...if one thinks one book a year...dear God.

Ok, I liked some things but honestly, there's too much happening, too many ideas, characters, pantheons, stuff mixed together, I don't think even the author has control over what is happening. Oh well, maybe the next one is better...

Tessa Dare - Any Duchess Will Do

Griffin York, the Duke of Halford, has no desire to wed this season--or any season--but his diabolical mother abducts him to “Spinster Cove” and insists he select a bride from the ladies in residence. Griff decides to teach her a lesson that will end the marriage debate forever. He chooses the serving girl.
Overworked and struggling, Pauline Simms doesn’t dream about dukes. All she wants is to hang up her barmaid apron and open a bookshop. That dream becomes a possibility when an arrogant, sinfully attractive duke offers her a small fortune for a week’s employment. Her duties are simple: submit to his mother’s “duchess training"...and fail miserably.
But in London, Pauline isn’t a miserable failure. She’s a brave, quick-witted, beguiling failure--a woman who ignites Griff’s desire and soothes the darkness in his soul. Keeping Pauline by his side won’t be easy. Even if Society could accept a serving girl duchess--can a roguish duke convince a serving girl to trust him with her heart?

Comment: This is the last apparent book in the Spindle Cove series. The author has said this is the last one but she might return to it one day. I feel sorry to leave this little corner of the romance world because I liked how different the heroines were and how special each story was.

This is Griff's story, he's a duke, wealthy of course, and his mother is at the end of her patience for him to marry, she's eager for grandchildren.
Griff however, only wants to avoid the issue due to a secret from his past. But he doesn't want his mother to feel bad, so he prefers to act like the bad guy and make her angry instead. For that he will find any excuse not to marry, until she drugs him, bring him to Spindle Cove and makes him pick any woman so she can turn her into a real duchess. Trying to call her bluff, he chooses the maid, Pauline, but is surprised when his mother not only accepts but as Pauline makes an act of being ironic with the situation. But after a deal made Griff will see Pauline isn't as simple to read as he thought...

Well, I liked this story a lot. I think it has a lot of situations to feel eager to read and the feel of the story is one to be curious about and to enjoy.
I know some readers didn't like the fact the romance between a peer and a commoner was unlikely to be credible. But I think, this being romance and not literary fiction, I don't mind the author taking me to a fantasy romance where I can like the characters and root for them. Of course, the society wouldn't approve but I like I could be transported to a place where what mattered was what was happening between those two and that they were both worthy on their own to be the loved one of the other, no matter their origins. After all, the main issue in romance is to build a good relationship between the protagonists and to make them be in love and in sintony with each other. For me, this book was a hit on all that.

I liked the story's plot line. How Griff wanted to avoid marriage so he made a deal with Pauline, but she was so much more than what was on the surface. 
She might be poor and uneducated but she taught herself and she was kind and she knew how to behave. She just had bad luck to be in a family that didn't allow her to become more. She never let her position in life to rule her behavior towards others or to turn her bitter or lazy or uncaring. I liked how Pauline showed herself to be special and caring and understanding and realistic. She knew her romance with Griff wouldn't end in anything but she still supported him and helped him and was there for him when he needed to share his secrets and fears.

Griff has a secret which isn't bad but changed him and the way he saw the world around him. I was touched by the way he described what happened to him and how that made him think differently about his life and the way he lived before. He still had a funny side and he was planning to gave fun with the whole Pauline situation. But things aren't as simple as that and a bond grew between them.

Their relationship may have started because of a deal, of a game of making fun of society and avoiding his mother's attempts, but when two people start talking and seeing int he other someone who they can trust and hold on to, I think this is a great example of a good romance, a good base to support a relationship and I liked how they've tried to ignore society and do the right things at the end. Still, love was stronger than that, communication was also important and love prevailed.

Only one thing didn't seem as good for me, how the intimacy started between them, because I was so focused on how balanced their relationship was, even with all the truths being thrown at each other and the little disappointments attached to it - which in a way helped them secure honesty -, I still would have liked a bit more care in the relationship turning intimate. I know, it isn't such a big deal but I admit I wanted that part of their relationship to have started a bit more romantic.
Also, some parts of the story would be slower in pace but it wasn't obvious why and it confused me. It only happened once or twice but it still stayed in my radar.

Overall, I really liked this one, the fantasy, the truths behind many words and actions, and I liked how two different people can dream to belong together and make a happy family and ending. A great story to cherish!

Pamela Morsi - Love Overdue

Buttoned-up book lover DJ is all sensible shoes, drab skirts and studious glasses. After an ill-advised spring-break-fueled fling left her mortified, she's committed to her prim and proper look. When she's hired by a rural library in middle-of-nowhere Kansas, she finally has the lifestyle to match-and she can't wait to get her admin on.
But it's clear from day one that the small-town library is more interested in circulating rumors than books. DJ has to organize her unloved library, win over oddball employees and avoid her flamboyant landlady's attempts to set her up with the town pharmacist. Especially that last part-because it turns out handsome Scott Sanderson is her old vacation fling! She is not sure whether to be relieved or offended when he doesn't seem to recognize her. But with every meeting, DJ finds herself secretly wondering what it would be like to take off her glasses, unpin her bun and reveal the inner vixen she's been hiding from everyone-including herself.

Comment: I've read a couple of books by the author in the past so I knew her writing is enticing, but it wasn't until I saw this post by Phyl that I got the feeling I really need to read more by this author. This book was wonderful for the most part and I was glad I read it, despite the two things I wish were different.

This book features DJ, a young librarian finally having the chance to be the head of her own library. She doesn't mind traveling to a place she never saw (but like a good librarian, she researched) to have an opportunity like that. DJ is a shy, reserved person and she is a bit put off by the town's curiosity about her and even more by her new boss and landlady's attempts at matchmaking with her own son.
Scott Sanderson is the typical good guy in a small town, he's divorced and the dating market isn't big but despite trying to be nice to DJ she seems to be ice with him. The thing is, DJ has a crazy night with Scott once when on holiday and he doesn't remember her! But is that what she wants?

I really like several aspects of this book. I knew the writing would be interesting and addictive and I was eager to see the story develop. As most readers certainly loved, I also was smiling over the chapters introduction being library references, the Dewey Decimal System. The chapters indication were the library references to what content that subject is, for instance, "631.2: Agriculture: Techniques, Equipment." where the chapter would talk about DJ's dealing with the agriculture side of things in a small town, kind of. It's all cleverly done and the author really tried to do this as closest to a library read as possible. I liked this a lot, because I'm a fan of libraries, always enjoyed being in one, still go to my local one when necessary and when I want and it can be a special place to any book lover. I wish I were a librarian! So, a book with so many library references was bound to be great.

Then the plot. I liked the idea of people living in a small place and still get into so many misunderstandings and miscommunication, because this does happen. But part of the fun is how things are in your eyes and you still don't get it. If it as obvious right away, then the plot wouldn't have any action. Of course it seems unlikely Scott wouldn't remember DJ from their night even more so how special he considered her then, but now she dresses and acts different. How often we only see what we want...
Their romance was funny and slow and they got to really know the other although, for obvious reasons Scott always shared more and when DJ did the same - closer to the end - it wasn't the same thing because he still didn't recognize her.
Then one of my issues with the book, DJ is shy and reserved and keeps to herself despite being nice and honest when it matters. But she had a crazy night and that seems so out of character. I had a hard time coming to terms those were the same. But people change... I just prefer my characters to maintain their personalities.

The secondary characters were funny and full of cliched traits but I liked their role in the situations they had to act and they gave a lot to the story, especially Scott's mother, I liked her a lot.
There's things happening besides the romance and I liked how things were being solved, it's good to see things come to a good end.

This brings me to the main problem with this book, which I'm sure most readers share. There's this increasing tension to when will Scott find out DJ is the woman he can't forget and to whom he measures all others, in a way. When he finally realizes who DJ is...the book ends. We get to see their HEA in an epilogue but come on! It's not the same! I wanted to see them talking, explaining, sharing their POVs with each other! How disappointing that didn't happen....
I feel really cheated of the best part, but the epilogue kind of compensates...still, it could have been done so much better, although I think I understand the author was aiming for different and innovative with this technique. I would still have liked plain old text better.

In the end, a great story, many wonderful things, poor end execution but I got really eager to read more by her and will try to buy more of her books soon.

Song # 21

I've been listening to this song almost all my free time. There's something about the feel of it, the vibe, the melody that makes me both sad and eternal. It's quite the song, love it. I think it's really great for this weird weather we're having here at this point too. 
Really can't stop listening to this :)
I hope you enjoy too.
