Romance Reviews Today

Good Morning, I have a few older reviews and a new one for you today. Romance it is!

Bound to Me by Jeanette Medina

A girl with nothing else to lose.A life that's brought nothing but pain. A tattoo that's more than what it seems.

Eighteen-year old Veronica has had enough. Her alcoholic mother has only delivered a slew of abusive step-fathers and life is only getting harder. What was to be a simple tattoo for her birthday brings more than she ever imagined. Liam is a shape-shifting dragon. He lives on her shoulder, watching her, helping her. Having the dragon come to life and teaching her courage becomes a new lifeline for Veronica. But Liam will eventually become a permanent tattoo on her skin - never to take the shape of the protector she became attached to. Will she embrace her life or will a broken heart shatter her soul forever?

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was a good short read. I love the aspect of Dragons, it's something not over done in the Paranormal Romance category. There's also a strong message in this story that I think a lot of young girls could benefit from. There are countless women in abusive relationships, either their own or via a family member. I think it's great that the author brings it to light and shows a character strong enough to stand up for themselves and family. It really was an enjoyable read. The cover is captivating. I love how it looks. Definitely grabs your eye.

But, with every book there is pros and cons...
Few small editing errors, but nothing too harsh as to take away from reading. The main issue was going from 1st to 3rd person or using the wrong tense of a word. The whole thing felt rushed. There's no real depth to the characters, other than Ronnie's determination to stand up against Ben. I think some better back-story or character development and editing will make this book a 5 star. In no way does it mean I didn't like the book! I really did enjoy this story, just needs touching up!

MAID in the USA (The BAD BOY BILLIONAIRES Series) by Judy Angelo


Celine Santini couldn't have been more shocked when billionaire bachelor Pierce D'Amato offers her a job as nanny to his four-year-old charge. After all, he hardly even knows her. But after finding herself thrown into an unexpectedly intimate encounter with him, are they really strangers? Celine is captivated by the green-eyed heartthrob who takes her heart ransom but how can she give in to her feelings when they're from two totally different worlds?

From the first day he lays eyes on the dark-eyed beauty, Pierce D'Amato knows he is lost. He immediately devises a plan to get her under his roof...and it works. But the more he gets to know the sweetly seductive Celine Santini the more he realizes there's a lot more to this woman than he could ever have imagined. Her intriguing combination of sophistication and innocence keeps him forever off-balance and, before he knows it, his bachelor heart turns traitor. The heart knows what the heart wants and it wants Celine Santini...whatever the cost. 

A thrilling romance with twists and turns that will keep you turning the pages...

Maid in the USA (The Bad Boy Billionaires, #2)Maid in the USA by Judy Angelo
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is your average, run of the mill, predictable romance. Rich man finds poor, beautiful woman. Hires woman, has sex, falls in love, marries. If you're into that gooey, sappy, honey sweetness that is the cookie cutter romance, then please, read this. If you're looking ofr something with value or worth the time it takes to read? Move on. This book is not worth it.

Steven (Dallas Billionaires) by Kirsten Osbourne

Book One in the Dallas Billionaires Trilogy. When the younger sister of a woman he used to date shows up at his house with a child she claims is his, he convinces her they’d be better off living with him than simply taking child support from him. He finds himself wildly attracted to the new “nanny” and sets out to win her heart.

Steven   (Dallas Billionaires #1)Steven by Kirsten Osbourne
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I can't decide whether this book was horrible or if it just needed more work. They are called Dallas Billionaires, but where's the talk of Dallas? They aren't even in Dallas? The story was short and so fast paced that it seemed rushed. There were openings for a lot more. Descriptions could have been better, and the sex scenes that were supposed to be hot? I've read more in a young adult book than this one. I won't even force myself to read the other two in the series. What story line there is, is completely predictable.
