Currently Reading: Finally finished Unwritten Rules by Alison Henderson and really enjoyed it! Recommended Read:) It's the story of a PI in charge of protecting a client who also happens to be her neighbor, who wrote a spy novel. While on a book tour, someone either isn't happy about the book or doesn't like him. Go pick this up:) Now onto The Tiger's Heart by Marissa Dobson. I think it's a tiger shifter, so this will be interesting! It's also a long one (35 chapters), so depending on the pace and my reading time, I may not finish this for a week or so.
I have to say, I was never so thankful to see 'The End' of a book, with the exception of Catching Fire.
When I left off, A had just discovered she was pregnant, and C blew up at her; they fought; and then things calmed down.
She's still in the hospital and right at the start, C looks as if he's 'in the mood', and she's surprised by his shifting mood. You've been with the man now for how long? And this surprises you?
Pg 490: She's staring at C getting undressed and he teases her. So why does she try to ignore the fact she's been caught staring at him? You're married! It's OKAY!
Pg 493: Let's take an informal poll of readers: You've just been released from the hospital and have cracked ribs, a concussion, and multiple bruises. Would you suddenly have the urge to make love? Yeah, me neither. A is definitely off her rocker....but you knew that already, right?
Pg 494: Okay; mystery solved. JH has been trying to kill C because they grew up together in the same foster home, only C was adopted to wealth and J wasn't. The entire plot of book #2 was jealousy, as was the cliffhanger at the end. I was hoping for a more complex answer, like one of C's 'most trusted'? Would have made it more interesting....but then again, this isn't a Dan Brown, Stephen King, or Michael Palmer.
C decides to tell A the entire story and suddenly she wonders if she really wants to hear it? If I've been bugging a guy for 3 books to open up, that's the LAST thing on my mind! Where's her inner goddess? She should be turning handsprings and doing a cheer.
They eventually do have sex, though A admits some parts are more painful. And C explains why he allowed Mrs. Robinson to be his Domme, and when he made the decision to become a Dom himself.
She's heavily pregnant, and they're indulging in some mild bondage play. But all of a sudden, she mentions Blip #2. HUH?
Pg 537: We see she's jumped ahead and now has a son, so she's PG with the daughter. I'm glad C was able to get her to change her mind about names for B#2; why on earth would you see if your hubby would like to name his child after a woman who gave him up and who he refers to as 'that crack whore'? Name the baby after the ADOPTED mom!
Pg 544: Remembering Blip #1's birth, and I'm confused. Did she have the baby before the C-section or was it a C-section? (just reread it; I think it WAS by C-section)
And finally, there is the scenes where A met C, and he goes to the hardware store, all from his POV.
We now return to regular Thursday programming on this blog. Merry Christmas!
