This book is terrible. Everyone involved with this book is terrible. I cannot. They've been squabbling for at least six minutes over where the main characters should get married WITHOUT SPEAKING TO THEM. Not to mention that they're both terrible, terrible characters who refuse to acknowledge their own failings. It's getting returned. Tell me what to use my credit on instead, I am going to scream.

CoverToCoverGirl It sounds like her writing has changed because I certainly enjoyed her early works! 2w
CoverToCoverGirl The Ravenel Series by Lisa Kleypas is amazing on Audible.. as good as The MacKenzie series by Jennifer Ashley 2w
theresidentromantic @CoverToCoverGirl I love Mary Balogh, her series about Peninsula War Veterans is amazing. But this series is well intentioned, and her writing is the same as ever, it's just so cringy and unlikeable as a story. I might still read the one after, since the third one was as good as all her other books 2w
theresidentromantic @CoverToCoverGirl Is it really? The two Lisa Kleypas I read I didn't like. Maybe I'll give her a second try, if you say they're as good as my Mackenzies. 2w

Someone to Hold | Mary Balogh

Mehso-so

I'm middling on this Westcott. Not as bad as the first, not as good as the third. Camille is a horror in the first one and no one actually likes her. She realizes that's because she has no personality. (Bonus points if Mom realizes that was her fault in Book 4). She makes a solid 180 with Joel's help, but he's so wishy washy about her, the story feels like he settles on marrying her when he doesn't want her to leave. Cute. 🙄 On to their Mama.

I finished this yesterday. I usually buy a bunch of Mary Balogh books at a time, because her writing usually never fails. I have the first audio to this Westcott series and I hated it. Just absolutely awful. And then I was trying to listen to all the audible books (May Read the Shelf Challenge!) And this one was sweet and careful and so much character growth! You didn't need the first, though now I'm listening to book two. Seems book 1 was a fluke

This was good, just honest to goodness good. It's not up to her usual standard I don't think, but this is her first since being done with four amazing full series, so it's ok. It's about Ada, a woman who works as a pack librarian in rural Kentucky and how she carries the world to isolated people and finds loss and romance. It reads a lot like a modern Dear America and it's a bit of a pallet cleanser. Sweet.

**tagged book her first**

The best Mackenzie book yet! As always I listen to these on audio and Angela Dawe is a gift. Will and Josie are in the other two prequels and this finishes those, so now I'm worried about the health and safety of all if she does the childrens books and even more scared 10 will be the final Mackenzie number. I might have to read her shifter books...

Dragon I have this on my Kindle, glad to hear it‘s good 👍 3w
CoverToCoverGirl Cool beans! Didn‘t know this was available! Thanks for the heads up! 😘. I absolutely agree with all the above .. hope she continues on. 3w

theresidentromantic @CoverToCoverGirl Yes! I saw it come out in November but I stalked audible for the audio release, definitely the best book yet, especially if you've liked Will in the other two prequels 3w
Dragon I‘ve read, I think the first 3 , I‘m up to the book that I think will have the half brother ( police man ) with the sister in law. I bought the tagged book and the other prequel on a Kindle deal. I read a Christmas novella. Too many historical romance series on the go. 🤔😀🐉 3w

Texreader @theresidentromantic I love cross stitch too, but doing Hardanger takes a special talent. My Norwegian grandmother-in-law taught me how with my brother-in-law translating between us almost 30 years ago. And we always go to the Hardanger region whenever we go back to Norway. And I buy tons of kits to make. What you are doing is very very special. 3w
theresidentromantic @Texreader That is SO cool! I didn't know any of the history behind it, I'm definitely going to go look up more now. I haven't been to Norway yet, but it's on the travel list! I would love to go somewhere where something like Hardanger is popular! 3w

I loved this and I hated it, but you definitely have to read it, if you like urban fantasy. McKinnley's vampires are an absolute must. They're a total breath of fresh air and a world I would love to continue exploring. There's not a love triangle because there really isn't a romance, it's on a different level. But the lack of information is a real issue and I had a few other fundamental issues with the book too. But it was a good end to April.

I got this from last week's library dime sale and it's been calling to me all week from it's place on the bottom of my tbr pile. So on this peaceful evening by myself, I'm giving in 😂😂 I also find it so interesting that it was an adult novel in 2003, but it's very much YA, at least from the narrative so far. Let me know if you've liked this!

Weaponxgirl I read this years ago and liked it. 1mo
Weaponxgirl I think it‘s the sex that put it in adult section for the time, ya wasn‘t that big then. I‘m sure I remember a erection felt against the leg scene. 1mo
theresidentromantic @Weaponxgirl Ah! That'll do it. And she is supposed to be 19 ish, 20, but she's emotionally very young, although I think that's been done on purpose. 1mo

So the ending was rushed, like I thought it might be. But it was still good because Grim ended up happy and honestly the that's all I really cared about. I'm sad the publisher cancelled the series, but I can't say I don't get why. But he's so cute and loving and he just wanted her red haired babies 😭😭😭😭😭 And I guess there was a magic plot in there somewhere.

I think I screamed "YOU ALL SUCK, GRIM IS THE ONLY ONE OF YOU WORTH SAVING", enough times that my fiance hates this book series. But that's the summary. Gonna finish book 3, but really Blackthorn is so straightforward and the "maiden" they help in this is absolutely worthless. What I do like is that you have a 100 questions left over and so do they. There's no neat, tidy bow, just the aftermath, which fits the story.

This was pretty slow to start, I got it about a year ago and kept putting it down. But once it sped up a little bit, Grim was enough to keep me going. The prince reminded me of the character from Monty Python who requests rescuing from Lancelot, so he was generally terrible. But Grim is devoted and adorable and SHE COULD JUST BE NICE TO HIM FOR GOODNESS SAKE but it was a cute middle fantasy mystery that I enjoyed.

I think I'm gonna have to agree with @Daughter-of-words with her 🖤🖤🖤🖤/5 review. This did not feel like a two book built climax to the Hangmen war with the KKK. I enjoyed Tannelita, I really did, but going back and forth was too much and it only made me see the flaws and not forgive them. AND I'M MAD AT THESE BOYS. Tanner risked everything and you only go save Addelita because of the plot twist? GASP. @CocoReads @CoverToCoverGirl @LaurenReads

Daughter-of-words I agree about the plot twist, I liked it even though it was bit predictable, but yeah Styx didn‘t seem to care about what was happening with Tanner until that moment😑 4mo
CocoReads I‘ll agree with all that. I also thought that was a little much-like really, she had to be related to Styx? And the flashbacks drove me crazy-a few in the beginning are ok, but they distracted me from the main story. But I liked it besides that. 4mo
theresidentromantic @Daughter-of-words @CocoReads I saw where we were going, but I was actually really hoping it was Charley that was the baby and that set up the next book with Viking. It was just too much. 4mo
Daughter-of-words @theresidentromantic yes I would have liked it better if it was charley too! That would have made the set up for the next book, plus can you imagine Vik with Styx‘s sister! That would have been epic😂 I figured out it was adelita a few chapters before the reveal, it was a bit too obvious and made the ending a little too easy 4mo
CoverToCoverGirl Agree @CocoReads the flashbacks were distracting. And yes Vik with Styx‘s sister would have been epic @theresidentromantic 3mo

I. Hate. Flashbacks. UGH. I'm almost finished and I have a lot of emotions and I'm enjoying it, I think. But I feel like I'm not getting into the story I'm invested in because it keeps getting broken up and then I get into that and it's broken up again. I just feel so negative! I need a recharge, I think, before I finish. @Daughter-of-words @CocoReads @CoverToCoverGirl @LaurenReads

LaurenReads I was getting so annoyed by them too!!! I am loving the book but I just wanted to get to the present time. I‘m at 60% and it‘s getting so good!! 4mo

I love Susan Fanetti, a lot, for her motorcycle series the Night Hoarde. And yet, I always seem to doubt her! It's a little rude of me, tbh. So I grabbed her new series without reading this one, the Pagano Family and I wasn't confused, but you need it. And you need it in your life. This little Rhody Italian family is dark, emotional, relatable, romantic, and beautiful. They walk the line between normal and mafia, but everything has a price. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Jas16 Love the Night Horde books. Have you read Lauren Gilley‘s Dartmoor books? 4mo
theresidentromantic @Jas16 No, are they similar? Because if they're just as good, I'll go buy the first one lol My heart STILL hurts and I read those books about a year ago 😭 4mo
Jas16 I might just associate them together because I found them at the same time and they are my two favorite MC series but I think they are worth checking out. Like Night Horde there is a spin-off series so if you enjoy them you have quite a few books to look forward to 4mo

theresidentromantic @Jas16 I would do no such thing! ♥️ 4mo

If I raved about The Duchess Deal, JUST WAIT. The sequel is absolutely even better. So witty and funny and Alex is an absolute treasure.

I LOVE THESE BOOKS SO MUCH. Greata makes me happy, the prose makes me happy, Varney makes me happy, the plot makes me happy. I press strange practice into the hands of anyone I can, and the sequel was just as good. 💖💖💖💖💖

The Raging Quiet | Sherryl Jordan

Ahhh a giveaway! I haven't entered one in a while. Thanks @Endowarrior21!!

My favorite book is a YA read by Sherryl Jordan about a woman who makes what she thinks is a good marriage and ends up in hell. She's freed by the universe, only to end up in a bigger nightmare. Her strength amazes me and the love that blossoms between her and the local madman is the most beautiful thing in my life. I've read it a 100 times. #endowarrior21giveaway

Okay, I gave it 24 hours. I am still really uncomfortable with the ending of this book. Like 100% and this is coming from someone whose favorite GoT lady is Circe. I just *makes vague gesture into the void*. I'm unsatisfied and creeped out on about 100 levels. Help.

Owlizabeth Creeped out why? I didn‘t find it creepy, given how incesty all the myths are. (edited) 9mo
theresidentromantic @Owlizabeth I'm not big on myths, maybe that's why. 9mo

I have no idea how I feel. I had a lot of emotions and that usually means I liked it. But by the end, I felt like we didn't really get to know the guy she ended up with, though I liked that there was no big triumph against the gods, i don't feel like I ever got close to Circe and maybe that's the point too? I just know that I liked the whole men totally f**king suck angle and I want off this island.
