UF, UF, UF. PNR, HR, Sci-Fi, finding a bit more YA that I enjoy. Mystery, crime, detective shit. Have recently figured out I'm not really a contemporary romance gal. I like smut but am not really into erotica. Oh, did I mention UF?
OK, I've been trying to organize my thoughts on this book so I could right a coherent review. Well, it's not happening.
I liked this book. I did, I promise, I ain't lyin'! But, I didn't love it. I thought Grimm was better than in the first, of course, since he's the hero here. I thought Jillian was a great heroine. Their situation was tough and I understood their reservations, their passions and their respective situations and motivations.
But GAWD was it dramatic! Tennis match anyone?
I want you,
I can't have you,
you're too good for me,
I hate you,
I love you,
I must leave,
I must stay,
you are my world,
I HATE YOU,
I LOVE YOU
I expect the drama in the historical romance type reads. I welcome it, most of the time. But this one, man! Whiplash!
I ended up skimming a lot, which I hate and I sped-skimmed (is that a thing?) the bulk of the last chapters. The story was good, and there were a few unexpected twists, but not enough for me to slap my knee and declare KMM the queen of my world. BUT - and here's a big BUT - KMM can write sex scenes like nobody's business. Whew, I was sufferin' from the vapors during this read, for sure, my sweetlins'. (and I can talk like that, I'm from Texas)
So, it still no Fever, no one should think it will be. I'm considering this book as a bump in the Highlander road and will forge ahead. I suggest you should too!
