Book Review: The Millionaire’s Marriage by Catherine Spencer

October 12, 2013

The Millionaire's MarriageThe Millionaire’s Marriage by Catherine Spencer
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

This would probably be one of the saddest books I have ever read. It’s not a tear-jerking drama. There weren’t a lot of conflict or antagonists to make the love story complicated. It’s really just how the book was written that makes it so sad.

It did not leave me with a good feeling when I finally finished it. For a romance novel, the book was made up more of the estrangement between the hero and heroine and left only a few pages for their reconciliation and happy-ever-after.

As for the hero? I cannot imagine that a man like him exists. Oh, sure, Max Logan had it all -looks, money, success. But for all he had, he lacked a heart. I cannot imagine a man who could be so unfeeling, so insensitive, so doubtful, so unloving. I did not fall in love with his character at all. I kept wishing that Gabriella would, in fact, move on, find another man who loved her and was not afraid to show the whole world and that Max would be left alone, old, and grumpy.

Gabriella as a heroine was not perfect. However, I really liked her. At least, she was mature enough to be honest about everything. She was also forgiving and most of all, she was not afraid to love and admit it.

Catherine Spencer did a great job with this book. Any reader can easily feel the things that the characters were going through. Kudos to her. However, no matter how beautifully this book was written, I did not like it at all. In the end, it gave me a depressing mood, and it’s not how I want to end things with every book I read.

Book Review: Wallbanger by Alice Clayton

WallbangerWallbanger by Alice Clayton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book.

It has been a while since I read a book that made me laugh and feel like I was part of the clique.

Caroline, the heroine, was not at all like any girl found in fiction. She seemed like a real person, a practical romantic. A girl who could stand on her own, travel alone, and still enjoy the liberties of the modern world.

Simon, for all his harem’s worth, was a real enough guy who snores and eats a lot.

The friends were really great people. It makes you, as a reader, wish that you had friends like the ones in the book.

The chemistry was amazing.

The way that Alice Clayton wrote this book was different from the rest, which sets the book apart.

I think I found a new favorite author.
