Lover Unbound by J.R. Ward
I'm not even going to front with you and try and pretend like I'm going to do a review.
I just ashed the book so I'm still thinking.
Okay, I'll stop the smack talk.
I think it was a good thing I had fallen over some spoilers because in the end I would give this one a B or B+. Not so much as a romance but as a story.
Don't get me wrong, there is a HEA of a sort and there is supposed to be people falling in love but for me it's more like 'you my mate. you mine' kind of thing happening.
I figure I'll be combing through the back blogs on your site and reading your thoughts and then commenting. Cause other than that, I'm not sure I can sum up the story. I can pull out the things that bothered me but that doesn't seem fair in that I obviously liked this and at least V got a good story unlike my poor Butch.
That's right. I'm holding a grudge.
I think I'll head over to Ward's site and read the interview she did with Jane and V but I didn't have a problem with how things ended in the book. Then again, I knew something was coming so I wasn't flattened by it.
And thus, I learn that spoilers can be my friends.
If you guys want me to write up a Cindy Review let me know and I'll figure out a way of working it out without spoilers. Unless you've all read the book and the spoilers then, let me know so I can spill my guts without worrying.
If you are keeping score that would be 2 1/3 books read of my 20 that I need to read before the end of the year.
The 1/3? I'm counting that short story by Singh.
Hey. My rules and it's not like I didn't read the story. I just don't have any intense need to read the rest of the anthology.
I'm hoping my *cough* review *cough* for Ice Storm will be up at Sybil's place soon so I can direct you to my wondrous insights.
Yeah. I just took my sleepy pills which explains my ginormous ego right now.
I used ginormous long before I ever read Ward's books so that word is so MINE.
I'm not sure what book I'll pick next but I'm curious about Sarah McCarty and since I have Promises Linger, I may just pick that one.
You'll be the second to know.
