My Opinion:
This was a fun read!
I was expecting it to be heavy on the romance, which it was pretty steamy, but it was heavy on the mystery. I loved that this story had me wondering at every page turn, who did it and why, not so much as to whether people would hook up.
I am glad they hooked up though. These characters were made for each other. I mean both sets.
A definite recommendation to mystery-romance lovers from me!


5/5


Recommend? DEFINITELY!



HE'S THE MAN OF HER DREAMS . . . In a world full of frogs, Alison Carter is determined to find her prince. Maybe her dating past is more Titanic than Love Boat, but she's seen enough happy marriages to know that true love is possible. No matter what, she won't give up on happily-ever-after. If she can't find Mr. Right, she'll simply hire someone who can.

My Opinion:
I really liked the story, but have to admit, the predictability factor in this one is 100%. I knew right from the moment Brandon got onto the page what would happen, though with that said, it was still nice to see the tale unfold.
Really good contemporary romance!


4/5


Recommend? Yes, for an afternoon delight.

What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding.

REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
