After two years of not knowing she has been married all due to a accident with a "Grown-Up" pact, Meredith is really trying to grow-up and the first thing is getting a quickie divorce with out her dad knowing so that she when she asks her father for a loan there is really nothing he can find that will make him say no to the loan.
Jason Lynhurst has had a plan since spending time in Vegas with Meredith and her surprise of being married did not fit in with his plans. But when all the plans he has made to make him look like the best choice to be CEO of the newly reconnected Lynhurst company falls apart he needs Meredith to help him spy on his sister.
I personally find Meredith trying to seduce Jason awkward but hilarious at times. But it really does make Meredith a very strong female character. She knows what she wants, she has tried to forget about her time with Jason and never could so why not go a few more times with the unforgettable.
Overall I did like this book, but it is not my favorite of these Harlequin books.
In a story of Spy vs. Spy we have Pride and Prejudice meets Veronica Mars.
Strawberry “Berry” Fields, has been raised by her private detective dad since the death of her mom eight years ago. Her dad has taught the finer points of spying and getting the proof that she needs for her clients. But when she spies her best friend’s dad with a letter on her mother’s letter head she has to know what her mother was working on for him and whether or not it got her killed.
Berry needs the help of the new boy at school, (HIS NAME), who is kind of a loner since she can’t ask her best friend to spy on her own father. But why is (HIS NAME) so willing to break into the offices of (COMPANY NAME) with a girl he really just met?
Next enter in two new boys Tanner and Ryan who seem to keep appearing everywhere Berry goes with Mary Chris. What is it they are after and why is Tanner so interested in what Berry is up too?
Overall this book is a good quick read. Not the best book out there but with light quick references to Pride and Prejudice and slight reminders to Veronica Mars this is still a completely separate story and great in its own way.
I really do not know what caused me to read my first romance and a Historical (Bodice Ripper) to begin with but I did. There have been many of romances books on my shelf ever since then and there will be many more in the years to come because as a friend of mine from work likes to tell me they are the cocaine of all books. Once you start reading romance you just can't stop unless you just really do not like the happy love stories that romance brings your way, but enough about why I first read this book and more about my thoughts this most recent time of reading this book.
So Sylvester "Devil" Cynster best known to his family as That Devil Cynster is the 6th Duke of St. Ives. When he comes across Honoria Prudence Anstruther-Wetherby who is helping his recently shot cousin he knows that she is meant to be his. When Devil tells Honoria that she is to marry him she flat out refuses as she has no ambition to marry at all, her only goal is to travel to Egypt and ride camel back under the shadow of the Sphinx, something that Devil and her brother Micheal have come to agreement she shall not be doing. So to keep her occupied Micheal gets her to agree to stay with the Dowager Duchess through out her mourning period. Which works well for Honoria as he plans to use that time to find out who killed Tolly, Devils cousin, and why.
The best part about this book is the butting of heads between Devil and Honoria since he wants to keep her perfectly safe and she wants to have an adventure and solving the murder with our without the help of Devil is exactly what she plans to do. The sexy level of this book is also pretty strong which makes me want to know what I was thinking reading this book in high school at the age of 18. Now of course I think the eyes have been fully open to all things sex and not much surprises me until you think about the age at which you first read one of these books and you think "What was I thinking?".
Overall I like this book, the question of who the killer was and why were not an overall the basis of the book but Stephanie Laurens does not leave you completely guessing as she does keep giving you clues every so often.
I finally got my e-mail about the copy of FanGirl that I put on hold being in at the Library yesterday and believe me when I say I pretty much got ready and rushed over there to pick it up since I had been hearing soooo much about it and I really just wanted to read the book.
And now only a few chapters in and I can really relate to the main character with her Fan Fiction writing ways. I think that so many girls and harry potter fans can relate to this book because it described us for many of years sitting around reading and writing our own versions of the characters we loved so much.
Though I have just started, I can not wait to read more and I really look forward to more of this book.
So for three nights straight I am working the overnight shift at work and during this time I am an audio book freak. I started the book Fallen which I downloaded from the library's OverDrive service but I am not really getting into it as I worked an eight hour shift and only listened to about three hours of the book.
Two more nights to go and if I do not get into it I may never finish it.
