My Thoughts…

First of all ….. I like the german cover better

American:

German:

OK … having said that …

My rating is

3starstribal

 

This book was meant for 4-5 stars …

The world building was amazing, I loved the description of the artifacts, ships, machines, everything. The idea of the nanoagents was original … and … hell I like the concept … a lot… my mind was all the time imaging the scenery and ships …

The heroine, Mia, is strong, intelligent and down to earth … she was not running wipping and screaming at the hero, she respected herself, and when she thought Rhys was lost for her, instead of crying she just keep on living, no self pity, no depression.

The hero ……… this is the reason this book got 3.5 stars… allow me to quote:

 

“At that point, Rhys had to force his thoughts back to shagging her …..”

“Thoughts of the Terror and of shagging receded…”

(Terror is the name of the ship)

“The first opportunity he got, Rhys was going to shag her blind…”

Do I have to go on??? This guy, Rhys is a good looking totally hot pirate … I get it … but “shag” as you can see … was all that was on his mind … ok maybe not at all times … but most of the time …

With all that “shaggin” all I could think about was Austin Powers … Remember the first movie with Heather Graham as Felicity Shagwell???

In conclusion … yes … I read the next book Heart of Steel … just because Lady Corsair and Archimedes Fox were so funny and didn’t get along in The Iron Duke. Hearth of Steel was superior to the Iron Duke, I’ll post the 4 star review later.

The story is never boring, its full of adventure, evil machines, weird and ingenious artifacts, amazing ships, interesting characters and a good plot, for a romances, it is very good, my only problem was the Iron Duke :/

My Thoughts

This is a very light and cute read, I was looking for something relaxing and funny, and I found this book.

The story is typical romance, Jenna is betrayed by her fiance, Adam, and her best friend, Lacey, she goes back to her hometown since she just graduated from college, doesn’t have a job and used to live with Adam. She starts working construction with her father but Sutton, Lacey’s older brother and former Jenna’s crush, is also working with him, you can imaging from there how the story develops.

I’m glad Jenna got rid of Adam, he was an *sshole and she wasted too much time in him, I was surprised by Lacey behavior, she was supposed to be Jenna’s best friend since forever and her attitude and actions didn’t explain how or why they were BFF, there was a point I thought Jenna was a complete doormat…

Jenna and Sutton relationship is really relaxed and funny, they have their sexy moments and at the end they end up together (sorry for the spoiler but it’s pretty obvious, it’s that kind of book) nevertheless I felt that the book would benefit from an epilogue or two more chapters or something like that.

Overall it earns  3starstribal , it was sweet and fun but not memorable.

Side note: this cover I also similar to several books, I’m beginning to think we should do a post about it…
