I like the premise of the story Nice girl from a difficult past inherits a Hotel and Restaurant from a customer she was kind to for years without realizing he was the owner of said hotel Then estranged nephew shows up to contest her getting the hotel and sparks fly.This contemporary romance was just eh for me I was never really invested into the characters Felicity has a decent backstory of a family tragedy that left her caring for a father who is in an almost semi vegetative state Then there is [...]
This was a pretty terrible book I found myself wondering how this author even got published and then I read her biography I daresay her successes in other writing and contacts in the literary world helped her get this published.The entire story takes place over about a week, view spoiler during which time the couple meets, almost immediately falls in love, and gets married The whole scenario of the book, where a kitchen chef inherits a million dollar hotel from someone she s not related to, is p [...]
Hard working young woman pulls herself out of poverty and inherits the hotel she works in.Meets handsome emotionally stagnant man bent on taking her inheritance It s pretty predictable from beginning to end.I ll admit to skimming through all the overly descriptive sex scenes Yet there was a certain something to keep me reading.I liked both characters and while the eventual ending was visible from twenty thousand feet, there was enough on the way there that held my interest.This was a Kindle Firs [...]
Maybe it is because I don t read romance novels but I thought this book was great I started it about 4 hours ago when a friend told me about Kindle List where I could choose a book for free I chose this one solely on the fact I had zero interest in the others and I wanted to read a book Simply put, I couldn t put the book down and it made me feel all the feels Have I been emotional reading other books Absolutely I still found this book engaging Maybe all those who hate this book are serious cri [...]
It was pretty predictable but I thought it would make a good movie plot.
Platinum blond, naive, poor, hard working Barbie who doesn t know she s barbie meets studly, heartless, baggage laden Ken oh he knows he s Ken over crazy circumstances Immediate lust, doubt, love, love, love, sex, doubt, doubt, love, love, drama, sex, love, doubt, assumed betrayal, doubt, love All in five days The timeline is erratic and jumpy and just doesn t make sense She paid for her dad s operation with the money she saved by moving into the hotel What She lived in a studio apartment at the [...]
I m curious to know what made this a Kindle First selection the only reason I gave it a 2 was I skimmed it till the end hoping to God that it would somehow get better it didn t that I kept reading is not the author s fault I can t even critique it enough to express how unbelievable the storyline was some word choices could ve been better it s not like GR can t write but it was not a book I d recommend to anyone almost every character was a ridiculous farce stopping now.
If you read this, do it half drunk on margaritas on the beach Definitely a skimmer.
Romance novels often have a compressed timeline, with couples falling in love over the course of a few days or weeks This book is no exception, and I m okay with that it s part of the territory What I m not okay with is all the other wonkiness in the timeline and various logic plot issues This is a contemporary romance These people live in the U.S in the present day, not in some exotic realm where time works differently For example, on one day, the hero and heroine meet up slightly after 10 a.m [...]
That was pretty awful I m glad I got it for free with Prime and didn t pay for this but I wish I had gotten the disturbing European ghost story instead.While I liked the concept and thought it would be a fun break from my usual reading list, nothing about this book was enjoyable The writing is comparable to what an inexperienced Miss Perky from 10 Things I Hate About You would produce before she reaches the level of skill she achieves in the movie The entire plot takes place in a week and makes [...]
Felicity Wright has lived in Seattle her entire life, most of it in a rundown trailer park With alot of hard work, she is currently a sous chef at the majestic Hotel Bancroft She loves her job, and even runs a free program that teaches homeless people how to cook, so they can look for employment After a family car accident 16 years earlier where her mother was killed, she has been paying to have her disabled father have round the clock care Blake Bancroft is on the list of Forbes wealthiest Amer [...]
I assumed that since this was a Kindle First Read selection that it would be an awesome read Was I ever disappointed If you enjoy a light, fluffy romance with sex story, this might be your cup of tea Sadly, for me, the story lacked depth and emotional pull from the get go and was, frankly, just plain stupid From the H and h s meet cute, the villainous publisher and cohort,to the insta love While I have no objection to insta love or sex scenes in general, any story that has it HAS to have depth [...]
Disclaimer I don t like romance novels, and I got this for free from Kindle First this month because it promised recipes in the back.This was the first romance novel I d ever read, so I ve no idea how typical it is for the genre, but it s pretty awful and reads pretty much like a preteen s amateur self insertion lemon fanfic I mostly slogged through it just to force myself to get over the no romances mindset, and I thought it might at least be okay as trashy entertainment, but I didn t get even [...]
Kindle FirstMeh Although this started out well, it kept doing downhill for me Felicity is a cook, and her specialty after studying in Italy Mac and cheese Blake takes her to Hawaii and they go on a yacht to see a Rihanna concert Seriously, it is so ridiculous I have no words Then there is the sex Never mind they have known each other for two days and they are adversaries, but they clearly can t think of anything else And then there is the dad He hasn t spoken in years, but his first word is alli [...]
If the pages keep turningI do not read as a literary critic I read for pure entertainment There is nothing delightful than a book that keeps you interested in the adventures to be found on the next pages One that invites you back after you have left your nightstand for a days work And provides a last page that leaves you wanting stories from it s beloved characters Keep writing Gerry Russellyou audience awaits

2 stars for the last 20%I probably could have finished faster, but I had to stop and rest my brain, if the heroine could have functioned better Good grief, she couldn t stay on topic, concentrate than 3 minutes or hold a conversation without giving over to the lust she felt for Blake I like sexual tension but not on every damn page of the book, not to where the heroine stared off into space lusting after Blake when someone was trying to talk to her, or when she was supposed to be teaching cooki [...]
Felicity, after losing her sweet restaurant patron Vern, is bequeathed the Bancroft Hotel where she has been working as the head chef Finding out that Vern was the hotel owner all along leaves her frustrated, sad and intimidated What else doesn t she know She is a sweet, caring, and genuine woman who cares about her new employees and wants to see everyone succeed, having fallen on hard times herself in the past She struggles with the fact that her father needs basically round the clock care, whe [...]
a nice storyReally enjoyed this story of Felicity, hotel chef who inherits Seattle s Bancroft Hotel after the owner passes away an elderly resident she befriended, who she didn t know was a billionaire The romance comes in when his nephew Blake, himself running the multi billion dollar Bancroft empire, comes to town to claim his rights to it I like that it wasn t a typical haughty, all powerful bad boy billionaire blusters in to town to be nasty and force his way into getting what he wants We ge [...]
Very enjoyable, light and fast read I was sucked in by the title itself, flirt in the title or blurb and I want it But there wasn t much flirting Yes, there was attraction, on both parties but true flirting did not come across Even with out that I enjoyed Blake and Felicitys banter and their disagreements 100% lust and physical attraction FOR SURE I did however enjoy the premise and what actually brought these two characters together I do believe the peak was rather rushed and in no time I had M [...]
I found this book to be quite boring It had many of the elements of a good book but they did not blend well I did not feel any real warmth between the main characters They were like sister and brother than lovers The most enjoyable parts of the book centered on the father s recovery Although I personally would not get on a plane and leave my father two days after he had life altering surgery Wtf The situation with Destiny ended in the most unfulfilling and unbelievable manner And whatever happe [...]
Okay, yeah I m not at all the target audience of this book, but every so often I like to break out of my shell and try something that I normally wouldn t touch with a ten foot pole Sometimes I get lucky and find something that I genuinely enjoy.Unfortunately, this book is just bad It was set in Seattle, which sounded interesting, but nope There is nothing beyond surface level vapidness here There s no point, there s no fullfilment, there s no nothing It s just another bad romance novel written w [...]
I couldn t stand the main male character Blake In order to truly enjoy a love story you have to like both those involved Felicity was just way too good for Blake despite her supposedly bringing out the good in him He was an arrogant, pompous idiot that if I were Felicity and had just been willed a Hotel and Restaurant by Blake s grandfather would have just gotten a lawyer and stuffed it in his face Blake had no claim to that Hotel and he walks right in saying to Felicity his deal is to see who c [...]
I really liked this book, BUT It really felt like Felicity spent all her time sacrificing first, with Blake then being like oh ok, maybe I ll be a smidgen of a decent human being in response They were sweet, the food sounded AMAZING and there s recipes at the end which is a great touch , and it was four stars for me until the last five pages Huge dive into purple prose, and I just don t think view spoiler having a wedding sprung on you, from proposal to hitched straight away, is romantic Wouldn [...]
Letting go is the hardest lesson of love.I was immediately drawn into the world Russell created for Felicity and Blake Seattle with it s seaport, history and culture was the perfect setting for this her first contemporary romance There are multiple layers to the storyline and the blend beautifully as Felicity and Blake grapple with their pasts that lead them towards a future neither dared to dream could be a reality.Well done I look forward to the next contemporary from the author Highly recomme [...]
Firstly, take this for what it is a romance novel review from a mystery novel reader I received this book for free knowing nothing about it.This books is utterly average in every way You know those faces that are so nondescript that you forget them five minutes after they leave That was this book It was interesting enough to finish, but that s as far as it went A simple romance, mundane love scenes, and an outcome that you can assume from page one If quick, light, forget me when your done romanc [...]
I enjoyed this book quite a bit It held my attention throughout and I liked the characters and their storylines I found it to be a good plot line I was disappointed in the ending with what I thought was a way to quick of a finish towards the resolution especially with Destiny s character That was pretty disappointing to me Other than that, a good chick lit book from the Kindle Free collection
Just okayThis story, or rather the telling of this story was just okay for me It was too unbelievable that the changes within their personalities happened within a day, or four Things just seemed a bit rushed for me to really get engaged in the characters I liked the idea of the plot, but the execution could have been better I think it needed depth to really sell the story.
This book was picked off of s free books to prime members so I knew very little about it.It is a total chick lit book I did enjoy the storyline and characters and wanted to know what happened to them But I was bothered by the sexual tension between the two main characters It was a main focus of the book and I thought the storyline was great without soo much emphasis on that topic.
Well I thought this was a book my goodread friends had read and rated highly so I was exited about it Until I realized it has detailed intimate moments that we don t read And I realized none of my friends has read it So I had to put it down Ugh I wish I would have looked into it before I started reading it.
