I read pretty much anything, from fantasy (City of Stairs by Robert Jackson Bennett) to romance (Bared to You by Sylvia Day) to classics (Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad).  The only genres I don't read are self-help and comic books/graphic novels.

Hard and Fast (Fast Track, #2) by Erin McCarthy

Hard and Fast - Erin McCarthy

24/6 - 52 pages in and this is sooo much better than Hot Finish . I think my enjoyment of Imogen (Emma Jean, LOL) and Ty's characters is colouring everything, but Imogen's unintended one-liners are great, Ty is more lovable and sympathetic and I really felt the instantaneous attraction between them. Hot Finish seemed to be filled with scenes where we're told Suzanne and Ryder felt passion for each other, but I didn't feel it. It's amazing what a difference feeling empathy for a character can make. To be continued...

25/6 - My, my, my, that was a super sexy, steamy, hot (so hot!) (and long, for the overall page count) sex scene. How can this be the same author of that near fatal train wreck of a book Hot Finish? Maybe she's losing steam as the series goes on? Which, if you think about it logically, should mean that the first book in the series is outstanding. That'll be my next book to read, if I can get my hands on it of course, considering reading the two that I have so far was just a fluke.


26/6 - That was really good. I loved Imogen's honesty and the way it lead to an almost conflict-free romance. I've never agreed with the theory that the hero and heroine of a romance must struggle/fight/be in misery for some period of time to make the book work, I would be perfectly happy if romances followed these lines: meet potential partner, fall in love, get married, skip miscommunication and heartache while said miscommunication is worked out. I know that's not real, but I see most romances as being pretty close to fantasy (but without the swords, in most cases) anyway, why not make some of them even more fantastic and give the readers among us who just want everyone to live happily ever after (namely me), without the usual trials that romance characters go through, their heart's desire. Another 'read, review, re-donate' book that's going on my shelves due to it being pretty fantastic. So out of four, two have been really good, one not too bad but not worth keeping, one pretty bad and definitely not worth keeping. A good record for my reading enjoyment, not so good for the whole 'cleaning out my shelves' mission.
