I would highly recommend the first story but not the second This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I loved Nikolai s story He and Alicia are a brilliant couple and I was delighted at the way their story developed I am surprised at some of the negative reviews, but then we re all different and it would be so boring if we all liked exactly the same things For me, Caitlin Crews is one of the best writers around Her prose is clever, descriptive and frequently poetic There is never a wasted word and I like the way she treats her readers as intelligent and

an interesting character and I loved the way Nikolai let in the cool light of truth into her belief that she was bad, when he pointed out that the man who took advantage of her drunken state was a predator and that she was guilty of nothing What a burden she had been carrying all those years Nikolai was cold and distant, yet hot and emotional and utterly beguiling I really enjoyed the way Alicia did not give up on him I love these stories where love really does hold the solution I loved the epilogue with Ivan and Miranda as well these epilogues can be such satisfying treats at the end of the story I ve now become quite frustrated when I read a book without one Not Just a Boss Plaything I had qualms about this story after reading some of the reviews But It turned out great The heroine is not really promiscuous Think about it just like some teenagers, she was partying and drinking which got her in trouble She s not proud of herself and has turned her life around based on her

His poor upbringing had caused him to look at life in a most crooked way I wished there werefunny dialogues between them The heroine is strong and direct to the point Her love for him saved him in the end It s a wonderful story imho.A Devil in Disguise Lovely story too The heroine is strong and she knows how to handle the stubborn hero I find their interactions funny Both are a pain in the ass Quite entertaining Finally a heroine as we might find in real life instead of the usual shy introvert virgins Gotta say it s been a while since I read a Harlequin book I started finding them kind of repetitive and boring.But that one muy bueno Tons of angst, a tormented hero, a heroine with an awesome personality Loved it Loved the tension in this story Thankfully, no tiresome unsullied, perfect virgin, but a woman whose actions years ago held profound consequences that still dictated her current day actions Loved the mouth on her, though at times I didn t like seeming powerlessness, while she went along with what the H dictated Loved the flawed hero,though, and that as he healed, so did she.Also, she s got brown skin and short curls What a striking looking couple they must make I m not having the greatest of months with M B Crews is a fantastic author and she always reels me in from page one but the heroine s past behaviour killed this one for me The topic was possibly too close to home so I ll leave it at that I m not having the greatest of months with MB Crews is a fantastic author and she always reels me in from page one but the heroine s past behaviour killed this one for me The topic was possibly too close to home so I ll leave it at that Didn t care the heroine had a promiscuous past So dnf.I did like the hero tho The prose was compelling I just have no tolerance in HPs for heroines with a she ho past or present I see that in real life and don t want to read it in fiction.
