I almost didn t finish this one because the hero heroine spent a good chunk of the book looking for reasons to dislike each other, to the point that it got annoying I have to admit that I thought the whole female vampire ruse was kind of lame, too But hoo boy, can Jacquie D Alessandro write a steamy love scene that ll make you tingle The ending made up for the characters earlier stupidity, and I m glad I read it because I had been looking forward to Logan Jennsen s story since he was introduced in earlier books.
5 y quiz s un poquito m s Conoc la serie con la tercera entrega, pero definitivamente Emily y Logan son mis favoritos Y aunque la f rmula funciona bien, el componente misterioso est bastante desdibujado y lleva a que la novela flojee un poco Sin embargo, el sentido del humor, el sarcasmo y la qu mica entre los dos protagonistas logran que nos olvidemos de lo malo y disfrutemos de la historia.
Fourth and final book of a quartet I loved the first book, liked the second, DNF the third, and found this fourth a disappointment.
The hero Logan was introduced 4 bks ago in NEVER A LADY and has been thrown at several of the previous heroines, only to end up a loser Sad to say, his romance with Lady Emily was not worth the wait.
I dont usually like humorous books since humor is so subject but found JD s books charming and winsome However, the JD charm failed to weave its magic here Without it, I was very annoyed with the anachronisms and the IN sane amount of interior monologue that the H H both engaged in.
Wanted to give this book 2 Stars since it took 2 weeks for me to read but it did get slightly better toward the end.
Fourth Book in the MAYHEM IN MAYFAIR installment Emily Stapleford s family are in financial ruin she has to marry money to help them Emily wants to marry for love and has a plan to get money by being an author So she writes a vampire story and in order to get the ton interested and get it published she dons fangs cape etc and scares people at a ball American Logan Jennson is filthy rich and can t forget the kiss Emily and he shared months back a kiss that Emily instigated, but now he is being followed and knows he is in danger He enlists the help of his friend Gideon While Emily and himself are sorting out their feelings for each other,his pursuer tries to hurt Emily to get to Logan.
I really enjoyed this book but have to say Emily and the vampire theme was too silly and I never felt the romance between Emily and Logan It is a delightful read and BOTHERATION THIS WAS HORRIBLE.
The ratings led me astray.
I know we all get in a funk sometimes, I look to these wonderful fluffy books to give my mind some time to restore itself after a heavy series and or read BUT OH MY This was definitely not what I was looking for.
The number of time Ms D Alessandro mentions Emily s damned lips drove me absolutely BONKERS About half way through the book I started skimming the inner thoughts of these silly characters and just started focusing on the dialogue to speed things along Not to mention if I read about Emily s moist, kiss swollen lips for the fiftieth time I was going to throw the retched thing out the window Get my point Lets keep this brief, since I ve already ranted.
Our lady savior, Emily, is a wonderfu
