Review – The Tycoon’s Convenient Wife by Ros Clarke

The Tycoon's Convenient WifeGenre: Contemporary Romance
Purchased from Amazon on April 19, 2013 for FREE

Fifteen years ago, Emily Standish and Guy Munro were friends. Until she fell in love with him and he married someone else. Now Guy needs an enormous favour from his old friend and Emily has a chance to see if love can strike twice.

I really love the marriage of convenience stories turning into more, I was excited about this one because they had been friends for so long. In the end, the book wasn’t as good as I thought it would be. Emily let everyone basically run over her. To me she felt no self worth. I know this is just my opinion (hence my review), but I like my heroines tough, sassy and bad ass. I didn’t get that at all with Emily.

Guy was just an ass. First, how the hell can you give up your best friend for someone? If my significant other is making demands like that before the wedding, hello red flags anyone? I just don’t see the story happening as it did and couldn’t really get into the story at all

Review – Compromised by Carol Preflatish

Cally Hunt wants to be a network news anchor and when she accidentally overhears the sale of government secrets, she thinks she has her big break. However, she didn’t count on her life being in danger and federal agents coming to protect her. For CIA officer, Ethan Young, what was supposed to be a routine assignment of protecting a journalist, turns out to be the most challenging of his career when he discovers the reporter is his former fiancée. Things get complicated when personal feelings and their past relationship interferes with Ethan’s responsibility of protecting Cally, especially when she discovers who he really works for.

I noticed this book for free and grabbed it. The blurb really grabbed my attention. I love romantic suspense, especially when it keeps me on the edge of my seat and wondering throughout the book. I really liked the premise of this story and the storyline. I just really think this book could’ve been so much better. It didn’t flow well at all and seemed very choppy and forced. I almost stopped reading this book repeatedly, but I really wanted to know what happened, like I said this had a really good storyline. I really wanted to like this book.
