#BookReview: Tempted by the Billionaire Tycoon by Jennifer St George

Title and Author: Tempted by the Billionaire Tycoon by Jennifer St George
No. of Pages: 151
Publication Date: October 21st 2014 by Penguin Books Australia I Destiny Romance 
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Language: English

Book Review:

Tempted by the Billionaire Tycoon by Jennifer St George is the first book by the author that I have read. I got attracted towards it because of the blurb which is interesting and had me intrigued.

This is the story of Poppy, a woman with a past and a whole lot of baggage that force her to keep secrets and be wary of trusting and getting close to anyone. Poppy is the manager of a luxury resort  where some mysterious accidents are happening.

Nic owns the resort and is determined to get to the bottom of the issue and the first thing he wants done is Poppy dismissed! But when he arrives at the resort under a disguise, he soon discovers that Poppy is not at fault.
Sparks fly but amidst all this, there is also someone hell bent on destroying the reputation of his resort.
Can Poppy and Nic catch the culprit and sort out their feelings for each other?

The plot is promising and I enjoyed the story but still at places it felt like the story was not developing as much as it should have. The characters were good and despite the author telling us that they were attracted towards each other, I felt not showing of their romance from the characters themselves. Their feelings and emotions just didn't get developed and I didn't feel connected.

Also Nic's past felt half cooked. He kept hinting at it and I wanted to see some action there but nothing happened.

Poppy's past is better handled and I felt satisfied here. She is a strong character and I liked her. Nic's character had so much potential but he somewhat fell flat.

The suspense of the attacks is handled well and though I guessed the culprit beforehand, I enjoyed watching the protagonists face him. While I enjoyed the climax, I didnt understand the culprit's motivation behind the attack. How would these attacks bring back the person he wanted with him?
Where had that person gone and why?
These were some of the questions I wanted answered better.

All in all, Tempted by the Billionaire Tycoon by Jennifer St George is a light story that you can give a try. It had so much potential but fell shy of achieving its full scope. 3.5 out of 5 to it and recommended to all romance lovers with a hint of suspense.



I received the book from the publishers via Netgalley and I am very thankful to them. The above review is my honest and unbiased opinion and in  no way influenced.

The Pot Thief Who Studied Georgia O'Keeffe by J. Michael Orenduff is the first book by the author that I have read and I was attracted towards it because of the blurb and the unusual title.

#ARCBookReview: The Thirteenth Earl by Evelyn Pryce

Title and Author: The Thirteenth Earl by Evelyn Pryce 
No. of Pages: 217
Publication Date: March 22nd 2016 by Montlake Romance
Genre: Historical Romance, Mystery

ARC Book Review:
The Thirteenth Earl by Evelyn Pryce is the first book by the author that I have read. I had heard so much about her and could not resist picking up her latest to read. This one is a historical romance with plenty of mystery. 

The cover is intriguing and the blurb even if a bit confusing had enough to appeal me.

The plot is simple and yet complex. The author executes the plot such that she had me engaged throughout.

Jonathan Vane's title is Viscount Thaxton but he is better known as the 'Ghost'. His whole line has been unfortunate with happiness, going mad without fail and he is determined to be stop this madness streak with him. Cassandra Seton will finally see and marry her fiancĂ©, Miles Markwick after a separation of nine years. But one evening changes the lives of these three.
 There is supernatural feel to the story with romance between Jonathan and Cassandra thrown in between. 

While I enjoyed the whole mysterious feel to the story, the romance between Jonathan and Cassie had me second guessing myself. They go back and forth with their feelings and had me confused at times.

The story is fast paced and I really enjoyed the drama at places and got a bit bored at other places.

Evelyn's writing style is a blend between the Austen style and the modern romance writing. She is expressive and builds the atmosphere beautifully.

All in all, The Thirteenth Earl by Evelyn Pryce is entertaining but difficult to rate. I enjoyed parts of it and recommend it to all mystery and historical romance lovers. 3.5 out of 5 to it. Go read and share your thoughts on the book with me.

#BookReview: Cowboy Behind the Badge (Sweetwater Ranch #2) by Delores Fossen

Title and Author: Cowboy Behind the Badge by Delores Fossen
No. of Pages: 224
Series: Sweetwater Ranch #2
Publication Date: October 1st 2014 by Harlequin Intrigue
Genre: Romantic Suspense

Book Review: 
Cowboy Behind the Badge by Delores Fossen is the second book in the Sweetwater Ranch series and having already enjoyed reading the first book, Maverick Sheriff, I was eager to start on this one.

Another lovely and thrilling romantic suspense from Delores Fossen, this book narrates the story of Texas Ranger Tucker McKinnon and Laine Braddock whom we met in the first book and know that they were once lovers and now separated because of the enmity between their families. But when danger brings Laine to Tucker's door, he is determined to save her.

While this book is a separate story but still there is a background story of Laine's father's murder and the prime suspect is Tucker's mother who had an affair with him at the time of the murder. So I would recommend reading the books in order.

The story is fast paced and full of action, thrill, suspense and a passionate romance between two headstrong characters. The characterization is admirably done and after the first book, I already felt closer to the Braddock and McKinnon family who due to their parent's mistake is now at loggerheads despite having been friends once.

Tucker and Laine had me wishing that they solved their problems and came together like they were meant to be.

The danger part is beautifully developed by the author and she had me at the edge of my seat, speculating the next twist right till the end.

All in all, Cowboy Behind the Badge by Delores Fossen is an entertainer and I enjoyed reading it. 4 out of 5 to it and recommended to all romantic suspense lovers. I am now eager to read the other books in this series.
