Monday Mini Reviews

Here is the first installment of our Monday Mini Reviews!

Keeping Promise Rock Keeping Promise Rock by Amy Lane - 5/5 Stars
One word: Amazing. I loved the detail Lane put into this work. Her characters felt like they were real people and I really cared about them. Each one had their own unique personality, too. I love how we got to see their relationship evolve from childhood through adulthood. Lane even brought me to tears a couple times. Highly Recommended.

Rough Ride
Rough Ride by Carol Lynne - 4/5 Stars
This was a pretty good story. It wasn't great, but it had a good mix of plot/sex. It was also fairly angst free. If you've liked the earlier Cattle Valley books, you'll probably like this one too.

Play On
Play On by J.M. Synder - 3/5 Stars
I think this is the worst of her Playing the Field books yet. I didn't much care for any of these characters, and the way they spoke annoyed me to no end. Her characters felt extremely shallow, immature and uneducated through out the piece. There's not much going on is this story besides non-stop sex.


  1. I loved Keeping Promise Rock, too. But yeah, you do have to keep the tissues handy. :)

  2. I didn't want KPR to end! I can't wait to read the sequels to it! I don't wanna wait until mid-July though. =[

  3. Well... she does have two smaller releases before then, if that helps!

  4. True, and I haven't read her backlog. Are any of her backlog books really good?

  5. I haven't read anything other than her holiday short, If I Must, and her stories in Curious?, so I don't know! :) Loved all of those, though.
