Book: Sea Swept by Nora Roberts

Sea Swept (Chesapeake Bay Saga, #1)Sea Swept by Nora Roberts

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Loved the found family theme - the idea of these men expanding their family to include a young boy.

I also loved the sexual agency Anna had here - she knew what she wanted and didn't hesitate to go after it.

The love scenes are a little too much like the overly flowery scenes I've been reading in Roberts/Robb's In Death series. They're too...ugh, I don't even know what I'm trying to say.

Anyway, good book. Probably not a repeat read.

I can't be the only person who wants a little more time with a couple after the issues are resolved. It always seems so abrupt - " I can't live without you." "Oh, me too." The end.

I've got two of the other books in the series, but I haven't yet decided if I'm going to read them or not.

It's odd, but in this case, I'd kind of rather have a bullet-pointed list of what happens, except for how it applies to Seth, because the most interesting developments are in his growth and healing.

Maybe I'm just not a boilerplate romance reader anymore. :/

The year is off to a hard start

Do we really need an excuse to tell people we love them?

Maybe we do. Maybe we need the reminder.

I still miss Nimoy, my honorary grandfather, my beloved Spock Prime. :(

Book: Fiona's Fixer-Upper by Erika Aytuzi

Fiona's Fixer-Upper (Romance from A to Z #6)Fiona's Fixer-Upper by Erika Aytuzi

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received a digital copy of Fiona's Fixer Upper from the author for the purposes of providing an unbiased review.

Fiona's Fixer Upper is a sweet, sexy, fun, angsty tidbit of reading.

Fiona and Jake have been together a while, but then during one of their fights, she says something she can't take back. Her boyfriend takes her at her word and skedaddles. Fiona's completely baffled about why that one thing, of all the things she's said in their fights, is the thing he listened to.

Thing is, Fiona's house needs some TLC, and she keeps calling Jake to fix things.

I enjoyed the flirty bits between these two. Fiona seemed truly to not understand why Jake left, and Jake was equally clueless as to why she'd thrown him out. All it would take to fix things was a good conversation, but they were speaking different languages.

The resolution was good, with realistic give and take between the two characters.

The writing was good, and I'll be reading more of Aytuzi's work. It's not like I can forget her name, right? lol
