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!
I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
