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!
