#SaveWolfsLanding As amazing as it was to see so many recurring characters appear in one place in this book, I figured out pretty quickly that it’s because the series was coming to a close. I’d be more devastated, but this was definitely a long series and I loved every bit of the ride. (That being […]
The conceit of this book made for an interesting read in light of the immigration issues currently plaguing the United States. As a note, I fall solidly on the side of how the hoops for immigrating to this country are ridiculous, which is how the plot of Operation Green Card becomes even remotely plausible. So, we’re […]
While creating a three-way relationship in a romance series, it would have been incredibly easy for this to devolve into straight-up erotica. Instead, the author takes three incredibly complex characters and builds a realistic relationship that includes all sorts of interesting stumbling blocks that grab the reader’s attention (even if it does make you want […]
Even though the main characters had their traditional “meet cute” in person, this story made effective use of modern dating apps to ensure that they got back together. In fact, this entire series has been modern in that the characters are not to be separated from their smartphones, even the Bluewater Bay inhabitants and not […]
Once again, Maxfield shines with her use of character. Though there is a significant (and quite sexy) romantic element to this novel, the journey for me was more about the character progression, whether or not Healey and Diego ended up together. The author made me cheer for them as individuals, not necessarily as a couple. […]
There were moments while reading this book that I forgot it was a romance novel. It’s just that the romantic element felt like a subplot to all the craziness going on regarding Seth’s familial estate, but we happened to also spend a lot of time in Nate’s brain as he angsted about Seth.
While there were some elements to enjoy in this book, I’m actually much more impressed that I got over halfway through the available books in this series before I got to one that I vaguely enjoyed rather than devoured.
I started this book in the afternoon and finished it before I went to bed that evening. In fact, I devoured it so quickly that I didn’t even take a few notes in my phone while reading, like I usually do to make writing reviews easier. I couldn’t bear to tear myself away from the […]
Despite the primary premise of this book being a romance between two asexual characters, all of the really intriguing elements of this relationship revolved around what made the characters unique aside from their asexuality. Which I suppose proves the point. Both men were a study in contrasts. Brennan is a skater dude to reads science […]
I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the two Bluewater Bay books that have made me cry so far are by the same author. I devoured this book in less than 24 hours, even pushing back work on my own book to both finish it and type up the review while everything is fresh in […]
