So the romance worked for me. We also got the light, fun style of writing I have come to expect from Erin McCarthy. Her books are always so easy to read, and quite frankly very enjoyable.But I did have some issues. Every time Tuesday was facing something emotionally difficult she went for a bottle of wine. It didn’t bother me as much in the beginning. What bothered me was Diesel’s immediate reaction to her having a glass of wine. He had a pretty bad and judgmental attitude about it from the start when it didn’t seem to me like it was a big deal. But towards the end you can see it does become a bit of a problem, just not handled correctly.
Another thing that bothered me, actually pissed me off, was Tuesday’s lack of respect for Diesel’s feelings and request. I won’t say what it is, but she does something towards the end of the book that is a complete betrayal and even if she was intoxicated at the time, she should’ve had more sense than to think that was ok.
Nevertheless, I enjoyed the story. I do think the characters are cute together, and even though we didn’t get any racing storyline, it still felt it was part of the series.
Now, of course I had to read the teaser for Eve’s book. I’ve been waiting to see Eve get her HEA since book 1. And this is looking up to be an interesting one! Can’t wait for summer 2012!
