Review: Heaven's Price by Sandra Brown

Heaven's Price

Goodreads Description:
Blair Simpson has embraced a life most people merely dreamed about. Devoting her nights as well as her days to dancing--in the chorus line of Broadway musicals and occasional TV commercials--she had never considered another career. Now an injury has sent her to a small town for six long months of recuperation. All around her are couples who are raising families and building dreams together. And there she meets a man who forces her to come to terms with a part of herself she has long denied.

From her first encounter with her new landlord, Sean Garett, the powerful sexual attraction between them catches her off guard. For the first time she's unable to lose herself in her dancing, as Sean's passion and tenderness urge her to open her life to him. More than anything, Sean wants to build a future with fiery, raven-haired Blair. But Blair's own passion for dance has ruled her for so long, she may not be able to break its hold--even if it costs her the love she had thought she'd never find.

My Review:
I did not like this book at all. In fact, the moment Sean opened his mouth, i was seriously put off. I put the book down after a few pages itself. In whatever few pages I read, Sean's character was dominating and dumb and Blair just takes it. He orders her around and does what he pleases, while she just goes along his plans. I can take this type of characters in a historical setting cause people were like that, but this is too much to take in a contemporary American setting.

All in all, I did not like the book and would have given it zero stars. 0/5

Review: Once a Princess by Johanna Lindsey

Once a Princess (Cardinia's Royal Family, #1)

Once a Princess
Author: Johanna Lindsey

I remember reading this book many years ago when I was on a Johanna Lindsey reading spree. This time around, I was in mood for reading a good bodice-ripper. And Johanna Lindsey always delivers on that count!

It was a quick read and I enjoyed it. The story is very predictable, anyone can guess it by reading the description written at the back. Mostly it consists of a lot of hot scenes with a loosely woven plot to hold them all together. Very predictable and funny, but I enjoyed it.

I rate it a 4/5 for delivering what it promised!

Review: Just for Kicks

Just For Kicks (Showgirls #2)

Hello All,

Hope you all had a great start to the year and have started cracking up on fulfilling those resolutions. I for one started off with a good book, Just for Kicks by Susan Andersen. I just happened to pass by the old paper mart where the book was considerably marked down, just Rs20! The excerpt on the back cover caught my fancy and so I picked it up.

I really really liked the book. Read it on a Sunday afternoon. The plot is based in Las Vegas, with Carly being a 'real live vegas showgirl!' and Wolf the Important Security Man at the casino. The book also involves Niklaus, Wolf's nephew, and 2 dogs and 2 cats.

Wolf and Carly are great characters with a lot of chemistry going on between them. While I can't say that the plot or the characters were unique in any way, but they were fun. I liked all the other supporting cast as well and would not mind reading more about them.

All in all, a great start to the year!

I rate this 4/5 mainly just for being a super easy breezy read.

P.S. Let me know what is the most interesting resolution you have made for the year!
