James, R.K. Lilley is rougher than <i>Fifty Shades</i> but thankfully less emotionally strung than <i>Crossfire series</i>. There were parts which I approved and there were parts which I had to roll my eyes at. Bianca was not a bad character, and I admired that she admitted that she was a submissive and wanted to explore her sexuality. At the same time the token best gay friend who just had to roll with everything James was dishing out was really getting to me. What I have to admit is that this was scorching hot and I couldn't stop until I finished the last book in the series. Definitely 18+ only material.</div><div style="text-align: center;">* * *</div><div style="text-align: left;">Силвия Дэй пополам с Е.Л. Джеймс - так бы я охарактеризовала эту книгу. Стиль Р.К. Лилли намного жёстче, чем 50 Оттенков и в то же время меньше зациклен на невыносимой&nbsp; душевной драме, чем серия Сильвии Дэй. Бианка мне понравилась потому как она признала особенности своей сексуальности, и её проблемы с Джеймсом были в основном в других сферах их отношений. С другой стороны её лучший друг-гей, который сразу же стал сторонником Джеймса и во всём того поддерживал, казался большим клише и отдавал фальшью. Как бы то не было, несмотря на недостатки книг, я проглотила их одну за другой и вам советую под соответствующее настроение.</div><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1323268405l/7863423.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="320" src="http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1323268405l/7863423.jpg" width="200" /></a></div><div style="text-align: left;"><span style="color: #660000;"><span style="font-size: large;"><b><i><span id="freeText3429089000392735225">Simply Irresistible by Jill Shalvis (Lucky Harbor #1)</span></i></b></span></span></div><div style="text-align: left;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: left;"><i><span id="freeText3429089000392735225">bought</span></i></div><div style="text-align: left;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: left;"><i><span id="freeText3429089000392735225">Synopsis from Goodreads&nbsp;</span></i></div><div style="text-align: left;"><i><br /></i><span id="freeText11593867410456332645"><i>Maddie Moore's whole life needs a makeover.</i></span></div><i>In one fell swoop, Maddie loses her boyfriend (her decision) and her job (so </i><i>not her decision). But rather than drowning her sorrows in bags of potato chips, Maddie leaves L.A. to claim the inheritance left by her free-spirited mother--a ramshackle inn nestled in the little coastal town of Lucky Harbor, Washington.</i><br /><i>Starting over won't be easy. Yet Maddie sees the potential for a new home and a new career--if only she can convince her two half-sisters to join her in the adventure. But convincing Tara and Chloe will be difficult because the inn needs a big makeover too. </i><br /><i>The contractor Maddie hires is a tall, dark-haired hottie whose eyes--and mouth--are making it hard for her to remember that she's sworn off men. Even harder will be Maddie's struggles to overcome the past, though she's about to discover that there's no better place to call home than Lucky Harbor.</i><br />Amazon&nbsp; <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/044657161X?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creativeASIN=044657161X&amp;linkCode=xm2&amp;tag=noctbookrevi-20">US</a>/<a href="http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/044657161X?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1634&amp;creativeASIN=044657161X&amp;linkCode=xm2&amp;tag=httpkarakarin-21">UK</a> | Amazon kindle <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003YFIVK4?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creativeASIN=B003YFIVK4&amp;linkCode=xm2&amp;tag=noctbookrevi-20">US</a>($1.99) | The Book Depository <a href="http://www.bookdepository.com/Simply-Irresistible-Jill-Shalvis/9780446571616?a_aid=28080410354260">US</a>/<a href="http://www.bookdepository.co.uk/Simply-Irresistible-Jill-Shalvis/9780446571616?a_aid=kara-karina">UK</a> <br /><br /><h3 style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: #660000;">8/10</span></h3><div style="text-align: left;">Really sweet and extremely lovely book which reminded me of <i>Three Sisters Island</i> series by Nora Roberts. It was light, funny and romantic, and it cleansed the palate. Great banter between three sisters! I rarely read books like that but sometimes you can't help but crave something as positive.</div><div style="text-align: center;">* * *</div><div style="text-align: left;">Настолько милейшая и романтическая книга, что я клянусь, у меня аж сахарный песок на зубах скрипел Smile Я очень редко читаю такие светлые современные романы, но иногда хочется, чтобы отдохнуть. Очень понравились смешные диалоги между такими разными тремя сёстрами.</div><br /></div><div class="blogger-post-footer">If you found this content anywhere else apart from http://nocturnalbookreviews.blogspot.com/ it's being used by a content scraper.

But what tempts her like never before is the dominant pull he seems to have over her from the moment they meet, and the promise of pleasure, and pain, that she reads in his eyes.<br /><br />This book is intended for ages 18 and up.</span></i></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span id="freeText3429089000392735225">&nbsp;Amazon&nbsp; <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0615741932?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creativeASIN=0615741932&amp;linkCode=xm2&amp;tag=noctbookrevi-20">US</a>/<a href="http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/0615741932?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1634&amp;creativeASIN=0615741932&amp;linkCode=xm2&amp;tag=httpkarakarin-21">UK</a> | Amazon kindle <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009UFDW9W?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creativeASIN=B009UFDW9W&amp;linkCode=xm2&amp;tag=noctbookrevi-20">US</a>($2.99)/<a href="http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B009UFDW9W?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1634&amp;creativeASIN=B009UFDW9W&amp;linkCode=xm2&amp;tag=httpkarakarin-21">UK</a>(£1.84) | The Book Depository <a href="http://www.bookdepository.com/Flight-R-K-Lilley/9780615741932?a_aid=28080410354260">US</a>/<a href="http://www.bookdepository.co.uk/Flight-R-K-Lilley/9780615741932?a_aid=kara-karina">UK</a> | <a href="http://www.fishpond.co.uk/product_info.php?ref=30&amp;id=9780615741932affiliate_banner_id=1">Fishpond</a></span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: center;"><h3><span style="color: #660000;">8/10</span></h3><div style="text-align: left;">Half Sylvia Day/half E.L. James, R.K. Lilley is rougher than <i>Fifty Shades</i> but thankfully less emotionally strung than <i>Crossfire series</i>. There were parts which I approved and there were parts which I had to roll my eyes at. Bianca was not a bad character, and I admired that she admitted that she was a submissive and wanted to explore her sexuality. At the same time the token best gay friend who just had to roll with everything James was dishing out was really getting to me. What I have to admit is that this was scorching hot and I couldn't stop until I finished the last book in the series. Definitely 18+ only material.</div><div style="text-align: center;">* * *</div><div style="text-align: left;">Силвия Дэй пополам с Е.Л. Джеймс - так бы я охарактеризовала эту книгу. Стиль Р.К. Лилли намного жёстче, чем 50 Оттенков и в то же время меньше зациклен на невыносимой&nbsp; душевной драме, чем серия Сильвии Дэй. Бианка мне понравилась потому как она признала особенности своей сексуальности, и её проблемы с Джеймсом были в основном в других сферах их отношений. С другой стороны её лучший друг-гей, который сразу же стал сторонником Джеймса и во всём того поддерживал, казался большим клише и отдавал фальшью. Как бы то не было, несмотря на недостатки книг, я проглотила их одну за другой и вам советую под соответствующее настроение.</div><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1323268405l/7863423.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="320" src="http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1323268405l/7863423.jpg" width="200" /></a></div><div style="text-align: left;"><span style="color: #660000;"><span style="font-size: large;"><b><i><span id="freeText3429089000392735225">Simply Irresistible by Jill Shalvis (Lucky Harbor #1)</span></i></b></span></span></div><div style="text-align: left;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: left;"><i><span id="freeText3429089000392735225">bought</span></i></div><div style="text-align: left;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: left;"><i><span id="freeText3429089000392735225">Synopsis from Goodreads&nbsp;</span></i></div><div style="text-align: left;"><i><br /></i><span id="freeText11593867410456332645"><i>Maddie Moore's whole life needs a makeover.</i></span></div><i>In one fell swoop, Maddie loses her boyfriend (her decision) and her job (so </i><i>not her decision). But rather than drowning her sorrows in bags of potato chips, Maddie leaves L.A. to claim the inheritance left by her free-spirited mother--a ramshackle inn nestled in the little coastal town of Lucky Harbor, Washington.</i><br /><i>Starting over won't be easy. Yet Maddie sees the potential for a new home and a new career--if only she can convince her two half-sisters to join her in the adventure. But convincing Tara and Chloe will be difficult because the inn needs a big makeover too. </i><br /><i>The contractor Maddie hires is a tall, dark-haired hottie whose eyes--and mouth--are making it hard for her to remember that she's sworn off men. Even harder will be Maddie's struggles to overcome the past, though she's about to discover that there's no better place to call home than Lucky Harbor.</i><br />Amazon&nbsp; <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/044657161X?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creativeASIN=044657161X&amp;linkCode=xm2&amp;tag=noctbookrevi-20">US</a>/<a href="http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/044657161X?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1634&amp;creativeASIN=044657161X&amp;linkCode=xm2&amp;tag=httpkarakarin-21">UK</a> | Amazon kindle <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003YFIVK4?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creativeASIN=B003YFIVK4&amp;linkCode=xm2&amp;tag=noctbookrevi-20">US</a>($1.99) | The Book Depository <a href="http://www.bookdepository.com/Simply-Irresistible-Jill-Shalvis/9780446571616?a_aid=28080410354260">US</a>/<a href="http://www.bookdepository.co.uk/Simply-Irresistible-Jill-Shalvis/9780446571616?a_aid=kara-karina">UK</a> <br /><br /><h3 style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: #660000;">8/10</span></h3><div style="text-align: left;">Really sweet and extremely lovely book which reminded me of <i>Three Sisters Island</i> series by Nora Roberts. It was light, funny and romantic, and it cleansed the palate. Great banter between three sisters! I rarely read books like that but sometimes you can't help but crave something as positive.</div><div style="text-align: center;">* * *</div><div style="text-align: left;">Настолько милейшая и романтическая книга, что я клянусь, у меня аж сахарный песок на зубах скрипел Smile Я очень редко читаю такие светлые современные романы, но иногда хочется, чтобы отдохнуть. Очень понравились смешные диалоги между такими разными тремя сёстрами.</div><br /></div><div class="blogger-post-footer">If you found this content anywhere else apart from http://nocturnalbookreviews.blogspot.com/ it's being used by a content scraper.
