summary Loving LiesYa l are going to kick me out of our girly reading club after my review of Loving Lies I know that many of you iked this book and I did too for the most part I enjoyed the over all storyline of Breaking The Curse (Sexy Reversed Fairy Tales loveost
found again Most of the book was and the secondary characters were interesting With that said I was disappointed in the Most of the book was believable and the secondary characters were interesting With that said I was disappointed in the characters and found too many mistakes by the author to truly enjoy this book Honestly I felt A Banquet of Consequences (Inspector Lynley, like I was reading a version of bad Redneck joke meets the Young the RestlessLora Leigh is famous for writing alpha females but Jessie did not strike me as the super strong character I had hoped for Sure she had her moments that included a few funny snits However the feminist in me wanted to slap her and remind her that this is not the 1950 s Women do not sit at home trying to maintain their purity and pining after a man who is out sowing his wild oats andet s face it Slade would have ualified for a farm oan with all the wild oats he wasand found again most of the book was
sowing The couple spends a day and a half together he eaves her in a very cruel manner and then sheThe couple spends a day and a half together he eaves her in a very cruel manner and then she after him for 5 whole years That is the unbelievable part to me Maybe if the relationship were onger and the couple had actually communicated I might have bought this storylineThe paralegal in me wanted to shake Jessie and tell her to get a protective order everytime she threw Slade out of her apartment only to have him break in again Keeper of the Light later There are better ways to convince someone youove them and need them than stalkingbreaking Shattered Spear (The Lost Stars, lawsscaring them Geez Been there Done that Seen it a hundred times in court it doesn t workike this unless a female is TSTLSlade had his redeeming ualities but his arrogance and domineering attitude towards Jessie really bugged me If I hadn t read the ove and tenderness between Slade and his son I probably would have hated him altogether And speaking of Slade s son and again this is the paralegal in me shouting why not shell out 100 and have a paternity test done instead of suabbling about itmaintaining doubts Frankly if Slade had eft Jessie because Amy was pregnant and he wanted to do the right thing by his son his character would have been endearing to me I do want to point out that the The Women of Easter love scenes were great Any author who can make aove scene Why Are You So Scared? last 26 pages has my vote When Jessie and Slade kept referring to each other as stud and baby girl it made me giggle and think of a recent discussion on the boardsOh And the author s mistakes I referred to earlier Did anyone else notice that Slade started off with stormy gray eyes and blonde hair at the beginning of the book As I read theast several chapters Slade s eyes were dark blue turned to The Power of One light blue and eventually became turuoise justike his son s Slade s hair went from blonde in the first chapters to brown in the ast chapters although the author notes he had dark curly brown as a child just ike his son I hate it when authors don t catch their mistakes before a book is published I ve noticed in Lora Leigh s books that her strong suit is not painting descriptions whether it be physical or just the settings around the charactersAnd on that note does anyone know if Jazz has his own story I really really He Who Dares liked Jazz with his ice blue eyesong black hair and smart ass attitude He definitely deserves his own story and I hope it is a keeper I saw mixed reviews for this book and given that it s on the erotic end of my reading spectrum I did not have high expectations starting out The problem was I did not set my expectations The Thing About December low enoughThe book started out pretty well There was a good though unclear back story between the two main characters There wasots of chemistry and the Os Peixes Também Sabem Cantar love scene.

S were hot hot hot but not for the faint of heart After the first few chapters it all goes downhillFrom reading the summary of the book I expected a big separation and broken hearts I did not however expect the main character to be a doormat and that is what finally ed me to put the book down When Slade comes walking back in after 5 Years Jessie Is Still As In Love And Heart years Jessie is still as in ove and heart as she was when he walked out My problem was despite her resolve to have nothing to do with him he keeps pushing his way into her Stand Up and Fight life and her house Trust me that doesn t make him a sexy alpha male that just makes him a bully His internal narrative says he understands he broke her heart but his actions say what he wants is important than healing her heart and fixing his mistakes I probably could have overlooked that to some extent and even overlooked that the way he went about walking out of herife in the first place was pretty stupid if Jessie had any backbone to stand up to him I get off the charts chemistry and I ove that but for her to just keep melting and having sex with him when he hasn t even explained why he walked out ike he did and why he s back is just too ridiculous for me She never made him work for it earn her trust and heart back Nope she just slept with him and went back to being mad and then slept with him again Apparently this girl thinks only with her nether regions and doesn t have one intelligent cell in her entire body My conclusion Well first I m so glad I didn t buy this crap Second don t read this book I think brain cells actually died trying to suffer "THROUGH IT THIRD THERE IS A "it Third there is a world of wonderful books out there too many to waste time on the bad ones Will rew Now Is the Hour later but all the facts were justaughable making the book bad 4 stars Contemporary RomanceEroticaPretty typical Lora LeighSlade is a brooding angst filled country boy undercover government agent alpha hero grunting mine mine mine Jessie is a whiny stubborn young naive virgin turned nympho heroine who can t resist his testosterone fueled claims and Jazz and Zack are a couple of jovial alpha foster brothersfriends mixed in for male posturing and comic relief and of course there s some drama and Londons Glory (Bryant May, lots andots of steamy hot raunchy sex But Jingle Bells like other Leigh books that I ve read it still drew Opening Line The music was a gentle swell of sound around the riverbank clearingReread45 stars I still reallyike this one and in reading it again I m reminded of why I initially enjoyed Lora Leigh s writing so muchThis a really good ove story that I enjoyed way then I expected to Written way back when Lora Leigh still bothered to have her writing edite I iked this book for many reasons Too many to get into plus I don t want to spoil it for those who has not read itI know I have said this before but Lora writes a really good hero There were many great ualities about Slade Some honorable some not so honorable but he is a very Troys likable approachable heroflaws and all I eveniked Jessie She was understandably bitter through part of the book but she didn t allow the bitterness continue until the Knights Templar in Britain last 10 pagesike so many books do It was good to see her evolve and forgive Slade for the past This book was an emotional read as well as a steamy one I really Reign of Fury (Battles in the Dark, loved it and would not hesitate recommending to othersNeedless to say I will be purchasing my own copy to have on my keeper shelf I know I will reach Loving Lies I had no idea this book was Erotic But hot damn I was wrong This is one very erotic and very emotional book So the story goes that Slade and Jessie have wanted to tear each other s clothes off and get all buck nekkid since Jessie was 16 But Slade knew he couldn t have her until.
