"This was the first Jennifer Hayward tit;e that I'd got round to reading and like the other authors whose MODERN(S) I sampled for the first time last year, Ms Hayward didn't disappoint. Bailey St John was a heroine who engaged sympathy from the start and the slight twist that other reviewers have referred to was refreshingly original. I think Ms Hayward is going to be a major talent for many years to come if this fine book is an example of her standard. A gold star read!!"
"Sharon Kendrick seems to excel herself with each book that she writes and this
was another example of this best-selling author at her stunning best. I loved this
this book from the start and it was an ideal read in the run-up to Christmas, and one of those MODERN(S) you want to savour...
Nicolo Da Conti can be added to her canon of stunningly 'hot' heroes while the heroine Alanah is the sort of woman to enrich any man's dreams. This was a riveting
read and is worthy of a 'gold' five star plus rating!!"
"Although when reading the blurb and the first few pages, I thought it was quite similar in plot to a previous title I'd read by this author however as I got further
into the story I found it a much more compelling read. with settings which were
richly evoked. Overall a very enjoyable read with al the elements one expects from a HMB title having been superbly met. "
"This was a rollercoaster read from the start and Rachael Thomas has set her bar extremely high with her first book from creating a heroine who took on the
hero and proved to be his match, thru to sustaining a story which focused mostly
on the two of them throughout is truly impressive. An eye catching cover always
has it's worth and I could picture Goergina and Santos throughout the story.
I have read a number of MODERN authors for the first time this year, but Rachael Thomas is destined to be a real star of the MODERN genre for many years to come
if her stunning debut is anything to go by!!
"It's been totally random but I have read a few of this author's books this year and
I tend to find the pace of her books somewhat liesurely, however I this was an intriguing read and I didn't predict the revelation about Emily's intended fiancee until it was revealed towards the end, but although Leandro was a compelling hero of the type you'd expect from a MODERN he didn't come across as typically Argentinean and only token reference was made in regards to his homeland. Cathy Williams is a highly accomplished author and this is a credible addition to her canon but this wasn't her best and I feel obliged to give it four stars!!"
"Another Sharon Kendrick classic and a highly satisfactory conclusion to the trilogy featuring the three girl members of girl band called the "Lollipops" My personal favourite was the first in the trilogy featuring Roxy Carmichael but this final instalment were further proof that as author Sharon Kendrick is at the top of her game and seems to get better with each book!! As a character Lexi Gibson leapt off the page from the start and it was an extremely easy read. Fans of the MODERN series should defiinitely read this book.
"This was the first title I'd read by Caitlin Crews and I was impressed. Although having the heroine seduced by an older neighbour was an unusual it didn't detract from the quality of the story or give an overly negative view of Alicia as a character, although I felt this was definitely a book where the hero dominated and of the two Nikolai was the driving force behind this story, but Caitlin Craws is a highly talanted and accomplished author and this story will please her legion of fans and I daresay win her many new ones. A very satisfying read!!"
"Although I have stockpiled all this author's titles this was the first Dani Collins
I chosen got round to reading. Although I found it slow to get into at first I liked the
refreshingly original approach the author took in making the hero a reluctant
father in sharp contrast to many other MODERN(S). I give Dani Collins five
stars for the story and a good choice of title. The production / design team
did an excellant job with such an eye-catching cover for the UK edition, I'll be
looking forward to the next Dani Collins I read and recommend her to other
readers on the strength of this book. "
"This book was fiction at it's very best---not just from the romance genre...Yes there was a little retro aspect to it, but for me that was part of it's charm and the village setting of Hazelton Magna was so richly evoked...and a refreshing chang from the exotic settings other authors prefer. I was as impressed by the hero as I was by Octavia Denison the heroine who leaped off the page from the start.
I've never been disappointed by a Sara Craven title and this book was yet another winner from an author at the very top of her game...I would give this an award for it's sheer readability. M & B should seriously consider a gold star rating for their fiction because Seduction Never Lies definitely qualifies!! I just hope there'll be at least another Sara Craven title in 2014!! "
"I really enjoyed this second instalment telling the exploits of ex-girl band.
"the Lollipops!!" I did find the heroine Roxy in the first book more engaging
and easier to emphaise with, but i felt Justina grew on me as a reader as the
Sharon Kendrick is a extremely talented writer and I'm looking forward to
reading the final instalment of the trilogy to see what she had planned for Lexi.
An oustanding series and yet another example should her legion of fans require
one of an author with a deftness of touch at the very top of her game!! Brilliant!!"
