Well, if you're reading the usual romances, then she has to be beautiful, has sense of humor, has a way with witty comebacks, and she has enough dignity and pride to resist the hero's charms...and finally give in close to the end of the novel.
Amy Malory is all that EXCEPT of the LAST criteria mentioned. She knocked me off my feet when I first met her. Man oh man, was she ever the most daring heroine or what??? Her "brazeness" irritated Warrer Anderson but she will ABSOLUTELY drive u to tears, from laughing of course, with her up-front manners.
As for Warren, wat can I say, if u have the most down-to-the-point girl, then u'll have the most unrelenting man u'll ever meet. But I think his control was too much. It went on and on and on, I thought he'll never give up. And then, when he finally did, wat do u know, there were only a couple of pages left. I was not satisfied, I wished it was LONGER.
This is my second Malory book, and I have to say that I enjoyed this better than "Gentle Rogue". This doesn't mean that I don't like James and George...I DO! Especially on this novel. The MALLORY brothers, James & Anthony, are at it again! READ IT, it was a fun ride, and I hope it will be for u too.
Amy Malory, is by far my favourite! She reminds me of myself. Very direct and no-nonsense type of woman. Simply, if you're attracted to someone why not be direct about it!
Totally adore this novel and characters and I found Warren Anderson to be a total hottie, given I have a huge thing for older men :)
I would so recommend this novel to anyone. Please take a chance and read it, if you're not sure just borrow the book from the library. I guarantee you will want to own every piece of her novel as I do :)
Happy reading all!
Warren Anerson, a typical male character for a romance novel, was inhanced for the fact that he had James and Tony to match his wits against. I liked the caustic remarks and wit that was displayed from these 3 characters and found the book to be very entertaining.
I liked that Amy mallory wasn't your typical lie back and allow the man to seduce her heroine but a woman who knew her mind, heart and soul. She didn't wait for things to come to her in their own good time but went after them. she enrgetic, lively and in my humble opnion quite 3 dimensional charater. Not 1 dimensional.
I do happen to agree with another persons review that JL explained the other books too much. it does tend to grate on the nerves and she would be better off to not explain every situation time and again. This is why I rated the book 4 stars instead of five. But all in all a good read and great characters and I am like all the rest, impatiently waiting for the next Mallory/Anderson novel.
Even in the first book of the series, Love Only Once, Amy was described as a dreamer, aggressive and strong willed. She speaks her mind and shows her heart. So if you like woman who are the seducer in the book then this one is for you. As for me, I normally prefer the man being the seducer while the woman are innocent and naive, however, in this circumstances, I wasn't offended by the way Amy reached out to Warren. Ms. J.L. wrote it well and it wasn't disgusting or degrading to woman. Warren had a dark past that made him hard and distant to love so it is understandable that Amy should be the one to reach out to his hard heart and try to make it soft again. The Malory family conflicts, bickering & arguements is once again an add on spice to the book.
I have notice that all books in this Malory series (except for the first one) contains lots of repetitive informations. There were times I had to skip parts wherein a Malory or two will start discussing the story or happenings of the previous books, sorta like a short summarization for those who have not read it. For readers like me who have read the series in sequence, It's kindda useless info. and i won't lose anything to skip it... At first, this style of writing didn't seem to bother me but when I got to the third book of the series, the summarization of the first two books was getting to me. Imagine my restlessness when i was reading the 4th and the 5th book! I skipped more parts then cuz I didn't need to read the summary of the 3-4 previous books which i already know about. Whew! I say it would have been better for Ms. J.L. to leave readers some thrill to pick up each book and read each story for themselves.
