Musing Mondays: Mini Reviews

Musing Mondays asks you to muse about something related to reading/books each week…...

This time I thought of posting a couple of Mini Reviews. 
Charity has escaped a fundamentalist religious community that wants to keep her captive. She crashes her car in the middle of a storm, and is saved by Russ, who provides her shelter, comfort, and  heat to forget about the storm outside. But Russ has secrets of his own and Charity isn’t safe.

I liked how it began. Russ is protective of Charity. There is suspense element. However there is a lot of erotic stuff which was a big no no for me. I prefer good old romance. Not something that borders on BDSM! NOT FOR ME!

Flynn Rogers has been in love with Winter Mitchell since she was all of 12 years At that time he was playing a vampire on TV. Nine years later she gets to plan his son's birthday party. He is engaged to actress Melissa Irish although the relationship is not exactly romantic.

Winter falls for Flynn which is reciprocated. It gets complicated for all involved as Winter and Melissa have to maintain a facade for media. 

The story started out good but it is too explicit for my liking. I am no prude but I don't like to read about sex every other page. This too borders on BDSM. A big NO NO!!

Yeah, the covers can reveal a lot.

I think this is part of why I don't read too much romance. I'm not prudish either, but I want the story and the characters' relationship to take center stage, not their bedroom scenes.

Hope you'll visit me today at

I am with you on all the sex. I think that publishers require it even in books that would be better without it. Too much and I just quit reading. Here is my post: Mixed Book Bag

If I am reading a book that gets to hot and steamy, I just throw it in the trash can where it belongs and go on to something else. I have learned over the years to find my favorite authors for romantic books and stick with them. I'm not much into so called contemporary romance novels. I also hate foul language and the "F" bomb in the books I read. Many of them have hit the trash can as well.

Oh dear, those sound awful (to me). I like romance :)
