  • Steamy

    Baxter, the dog, brings Brian into Veronica’s life. The fantasies start almost immediately. There relationship takes a steamy path even though neither is looking for a relationship. Veronica is struggling with work and family, while Brian is trying to start a new life. There are lots of deep conversations between the characters and a lot of soul searching.

  • Great premise, poorly executed

    This was probably my least favourite romance book for 2019. The writing and dialogue were poorly executed. The premise sounded fun, but the author just couldn't pull it together. To add to my dislike, I also did not like the lead female character Veronica. She was such a snob and flipped emotions with Brian too much. I couldn't figure out what she wanted from Brian and the dialogue issues did not help matters any. I would not recommend this book to anyone. I think the characters need to be fleshed out more, the book more thoroughly edited, more likeable lead and a more satisfying ending. A great premise poorly executed. “I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.”

  • No the best romance

    Today's book is Unmanageable and was written by Lavinia Kent. This book is the second in the Forbidden Cover series, a contemporary romance series. I received this book as an Advanced Reader's Copy from LoveSwept through NetGalley. Victoria Andersen is a lawyer at her father's law firm, where she is treated less than her younger sister. She has yet to determine what she wants, besides living in the home left to her by her mother. Her younger brother has died and now feels the need to gain her father's approval in all aspects of her life. I did not like the way Mr. Andersen treats both of his daughter but also the way his younger daughter treats Victoria. I was impressed by Brian's academic nature as well as his athletic ability. The least interesting part was the wedding and Mr. Andersen's announcement of who would take over after his retirement. I wonder why the author left Brian's backstory along for so long. The overall plot development lacked a certain finesse as it mainly focuses on Victoria and her problems, so 6 points and the overall character development also lacks the depth of character growth as the no was showing of extra relationships, so 5 points. The overall layout was okay as it balanced narrative with dialogue, so 7 points for an overall grade of 60%. I would not recommend this book. Those who enjoy main female and family drama. Those who don't enjoy lack of character growth and lack of connection with characters may need to look elsewhere.

  • Good book but got very talky

    This was a refreshing book to read. I loved reading a book where the main characters were willing to talk out their differences/squabbles instead of leaving each other angry. I also liked that Veronica called the shots in their relationship. She let Brian know what she wanted. Now, saying that, I did think that Brian and Veronica talked too much. There were points in the book where they seemed to go on and on. Which drove me crazy go nuts. I was mentally yelling “Just get to the heart of the issue!!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Okay romance

    Unmanageable is the second book in the Forbidden Cove series but can be read as a standalone. It is a bit similar to the first book, at least in terms of the romance or lack thereof. Veronica and Brian do seem to do a lot of talking, and there is certainly chemistry, but chemistry and sexual attraction don't necessarily equal love and romance. These two just didn't seem very compatible to me. Veronica is a hard character to like, and I'm not really sure that I ever really got there with her. She comes across as self-centered, selfish, and judgmental, and just when I would start to think there was more to her, she'd do or say something else that just frustrated me to no end. She had reason for some issues, but instead of making her more relatable, she acted like the whole world revolved around her. On the flip side, Brian is just a genuinely likable guy. He's warm and friendly, and an all-around good guy. He does have a secret, but the big reveal of that secret was a bit blown out of proportion in my opinion. It really had nothing to do with Veronica or the relationship, and it felt like her response was just angst for the sake of angst. In the end, this one was just okay for me. I really wanted more depth in the relationship, and maybe a more likable main character.

    Thanks for your feedback!
