It’s been a slow reading week for me which is a shame after the excitement I had over Polaris Rising. I started Crazy On You by Crystal B. Bright which I listed on my February TBR and it was a disappointment.
The heroine, Tassia, made a lot of assumptions about everything but especially the hero and I just couldn’t handle it. The hero, Hyde, kept going back and forth about a thing I needed that to stop as well. They were both annoying me and because of that, I wasn’t feeling their chemistry and wasn’t connecting to them. If I can’t connect, I can’t believe in their HEA and isn’t that what I am here for. So I decided it would be best for everyone if I marked this as a DNF.
I started The Military Wife by Laura Trentham. This is a new to me author and it definitely reeks of “not like other girls” BUT the heroine is a widow and her love interest is her deceased husband’s best friend. I am very early on in the book and it seems like the best friend may have had some feelings for the wife even before he met her. This is falls under the unrequited love story and this is one of my most favorite romance tropes/devices. So I am reading more to see if I can get to the good stuff while overlooking the NLOG stuff.
