Review: Kissing Her Enemy (Pine Falls, #2) by Coleen Kwan

Kissing Her Enemy (Pine Falls, #2)

Synopsis

Amber Miller has worked hard to get her small business thriving. Now the Wright family wants to tear down her store to put up a mega centre. What's even worse, the guy who broke her heart in high school is the new CEO of Wright Inc. He’s just as infuriating now—and just as tempting—as he was back then, but she isn't giving up without a fight.

Logan Wright is back in Pine Falls for one reason: to turn his dad’s failing company around. His plans should put them on the upswing. But he didn’t count on Amber Miller standing in his way, as fiery and stubborn as she was years ago. And the more time he spends with her, the harder it is to resist falling for her again. The only problem is he's everything she doesn't want.

Review


It's a great read. I loved both Logan and Amber. They've perfect chemistry. Story is also good. As far as contemporary romances goes this one is quite good.

Amber owns a hardware stone in a small town. Now her livelihood is threatened by Logan Wright who wants to build a mega store in this small town. He wants to buy her out. She can move her store but with a mega store hers small store will not survive. So there is only one option, she must fight him. Mega store must not be built. Unfortunately, things will not be easy for her. Because Logan is rich and his family has influence. She on the other hand comes from wrong side of track. She can't fight this battle in Logan's world. It doesn't mean she will give it up... There is another problem, as soon as she see Logan again after all these years she realises that the attraction they felt for each other when they were teenagers is still there. So not only she has to fight for her business but also for heart... Logan cannot break it once again.

Logan was never been able to forget Amber. She is hot headed and temperamental but she is also irresistible. As much as business matter to him, he must admit that Amber matters more. But with his father's failing health, his mother's disapproval, their past and present rivalry, winning her over might not be easy. In any case he is going to try, maybe she feels the same about him...

It's an interesting story, well-written, and full of drama. Although it was a bit predictable but then most contemporary romances are. ;) I enjoyed reading it and will recommend to anyone who likes a good romance novel.

going-after-indigo-teaser excerpt1
“What are you thinking about there, Dancing Queen?”
Clearing her throat, she quickly snaps her attention back to him.
“Nothing. I wasn’t thinking of anything.”
“Those blue eyes of yours tell a different story, Ms. Crystalline.”
He takes a step forward and she attempts to step back but can’t because there’s a car there. Duh!
“What … what are you doing?”
“I’m guessing what you and I have both been thinking about despite the aggravation with one another.”
Without another word, his big hands take hold of her face and pull her to him. When their lips meet any protest she may have had is dismissed. Instead, she finds herself lost in his kiss. His lips feel so wonderful against her own and the feeling it conjures starts a burning need to coil inside. His desire to make this kiss more is felt as he presses into her and coaxes her lips to part in order for his tongue to sweep into her awaiting mouth. She doesn’t know which of them moans first but the tremor she feels is all her own.
His hands begin a downward journey and she begins to reach upward to tangle her hand in his hair. When he reaches her taut nipple and gives it a squeeze, she almost convulses in reaction.
How long had it been since Mitchell? Mitchell. Yes, Mitchell. The mere thought of his name causes her body to instantly cool. Still, she reluctantly pulls back from the hungry kiss of the man before her.
“Um … I … hmm. I … I do need something from you. I need a ride home. My … the car … I have a flat tire and no spare.”
The knowing look on his face makes her want to crawl into a hole and hide.
“Don’t look at me like that. Whatever! You’re a damn good kisser. Woohoo for you. You had me for a moment. The moment is over. I … what are you doing?”
His body presses into her again and his hand slides into the front of her jeans. She didn’t think there would be enough room for him to get that big hand of his down there. His fingers glide over her center and she moans. Hearing her reaction to this man was too much. She couldn’t do this, be this person.

They say you can’t go home again.
But when you’re broke, down on your luck, and wanted in two states…
It’s the only place left.

Adelaide spent high school dreaming of the day she’d lift a middle finger to her small town life and watch it all fade away in the rear-view mirror. After marrying a man who she thought was her prince charming, Adelaide had finally gotten everything she ever wanted…until the silver spoon was ripped from her mouth and her prince was revealed to be just another cheating jackass. Suddenly homeless with nowhere else to turn, she must head back to the one place she never thought she’d have to show her face again.

Savannah just wanted to see the world, but ended up a twenty-five year old vagabond with nothing to show for her life but a string of loser ex-boyfriends.

It’s time to go back to the beginning and figure out where she went wrong.

Adelaide and Savannah couldn’t wait to leave the bayou. However, when circumstances force them out of their self-imposed exiles, they have no choice but to belly crawl back to the place they both turned their backs on.

Review


I really liked it. It's an interesting story about two people who can't let "past buried". Soon they will learn that it's better to let go of the past because that's the only way to secure their future's happiness.

Lady Phoebe fears scandal. Her family has suffered enough due to her father's problems. Society hasn't forgotten. They were poor for a long time. Now that her sister has married well things have turned around. Old acquaintances, who turned their backs on them, now wants to reconnect. But she remembers. And she promised herself that no matter what there must not be any scandal associated with her ever. So when Lord Maxfeld asked her to be his fiance for a few months she simply cannot say yes. It can only end in a scandal and she won't do that to her family.

Maxfeld wants his nephew more than anything else in the world. The only way his mother will let Thomas live with him is he were to marry. But marriage is not for him. He promised himself that he will never marry nor will he ever have children of his own. It's too risky. What if he turned out to be just like his father? He can never hurt anyone the way his father hurt his mother. So the only choice is to find someone who will pretend to be his fiance long enough to convince his mother. That's all. There will be no happily-ever-after for him. Fortunately he knows just the lady... he will convince her no matter by what means.


It's a very well-written novel. I thoroughly enjoyed Lady Phoebe and Lord Maxfeld's story. Both are interesting characters and the book kept me on my toes. It was the right amount of romantic, emotional, and intriguing.

Review: Distracting the Duke (Wayward in Wessex #1) by Elizabeth Keysian

Distracting the Duke (Wayward in Wessex #1)

Synopsis

Devonshire, England, 1820

Determined to avoid the strife-filled marriage of his parents, Marcus, the Duke of Ulvercombe, wants an amenable, biddable wife, and has set his cap for a certain pretty miss. Unfortunately, her vastly opinionated, frustrating, and lamentably beautiful guardian, Lady Clara Tinniswood, keeps distracting him, tempting him to consider a far more tempestuous—and passionate—union.

Recently widowed Lady Clara Tinniswood wants only to organize a quiet new life for herself, beyond the control of any man. But one shockingly unguarded moment while confronted by Marcus’s gloriously naked body catapults her headlong into a forbidden passion and threatens to undermine all her well-laid plans.

Even if Marcus abandons his sweet ideal and surrenders to his growing desire for Clara, there's one unalterable issue which could destroy their hopes forever...
 

Review


I loved it! Duke of Ulvercombe and Lady Clara both are amazing characters, and perfect for each other. Marcus is looking for a wife who is agreeable, biddable, and easy to talk to. Clara is a Lady who is very opinionated and have a hard time keeping her opinions to herself. She is straightforward and outspoken. There is no way they can ever like each other. They tend to be an annoyance to one another and their interactions often end in disagreements and arguments. Still for some reason they seem to crave each other's company. Soon they both realize that regardless of their mutual dislike, they are attracted to each other. Unfortunately there is no solution for their dilemma. The Duke must marry and he is not willing to marry someone he doesn't like. And Clara does not want to marry again, she will never trust another man for as long as she lives. Therefore, they have no future together and thus they must let themselves to have their futures separate from one another. But will it be that easy? Can they both find happiness and end up with what they want most? Or should they just let go of their respective pasts and be happy together?

It's a very well written novel. I couldn't put it down once I started reading and read the whole thing in one sitting. I quite enjoyed the story, as well as Marcus and Clara's banters. Their constant bickering was quite entertaining. I found it full of hunour, romance, and lots of fun. Definitely a must read for all historical romance readers. :)

Review: Only a Duke Will Do (To Marry a Rogue #2) by Tamara Gill

Only a Duke Will Do  (To Marry a Rogue, #2)

Synopsis

Without a Season, Lady Isolde Worthingham captured the Duke of Moore’s heart at a country dance. But on the eve of her wedding, a scandal that rocked the ton and sent her fleeing to Scotland alone and unwed, leaves her perfectly planned future in a tangle of disgrace and heartbreak.

Merrick Mountshaw, the Duke of Moore, loathes the pitiful existence he portrays to the ton. With a scandalous wife he never wanted, who flaunts her many indiscretions, life is a never-ending parade of hell. When the one woman he loved and lost returns to London, he knows he can no longer live without her.

But vows and past hurts are not easily forgotten. Love may not win against the ton when a too proper lord and lady play by the rules.

Review


It's a very emotional read. The story is amazing and the characters are all well-written. It's a must read for historical fiction fans.

Duke of Moore and Lady Isolde fell in love at first sight. Since the day they met they have known that they're meant to be together. They are going to have their happily-ever-after soon. But then they're both betrayed. Isolde leaves her home and move to Scotland, heart broken and in despair. Moore, shackled in a marriage he didn't want, becomes resigned to his fate. And life went on....

Now after five years Isolde is back. As soon as their path crosses they both realise how much they still love each other. Unfortunately it doesn't matter any more. Moore has his own life, a wife and a child. And Isolde is also ready to move on, find a husband of her own, and finally be happy. But the more they see each other, the more difficult it becomes to deny what they know to be true. Will they ever be happy or are they doomed to live apart and in misery for the rest of their lives?

It's a very interesting story, with many twists and turns, I quite enjoyed reading it. 'To Marry a Rogue' has become one of my favourite historical romance series. It has drama, romance, intrigue, heart break, and lots of emotions which kept me interested through out the book.
