In My Own Words:
I love romances and cozy mysteries. I love my Kindle. I have developed a few bias. I always read the sample before purchasing. But I won't download the sample if the title is in all capital letters. I am less likely to give an author using only initials a chance. (Everyone can't be J.K. Rowling). If I'm confused by or bored by the book description, I don't bother with the sample. The same applies … Read more

This is actually one of my favorites by Amanda Quick. It is witty and funny. I thought the manipulative and powerful character of Simon made a perfect contrast to the sweet, seeming naivety of Emily. I found both characters likeable and I found this to be a thoroughly enjoyable read. I've read it three times now and I've loved it each time.

I wish I'd read some of the reviews more carefully. I gave this book three stars because it was an adventure and it was funny. But that is where my praise ends.
It lacks originality. The author obviously read Warrior's Woman by Johanna Lindsey. Many of the author's ideas seem inspired by it. Even the name structures seem like they were stolen from that novel.
I don't feel that in all the pages of this novel that I got to know the main characters. I know nothing of their dreams, aspirations, or personalities.
Some may equate monogamy with monotony, but I'm not one of those people. Enough said.
The characters actions lacked any kind of logic. For example, at the… Read more
