Big. Boss Lady. Energy. Sixteen years ago Beatrice Goodwin made the decision to follow her family and society's expectations and marry a Duke instead of following her heart and running away with Wes Dalton. Now divorced, Beatrice is back in New York with the family and business she loves - Goodwin's Department Store. But Goodwin's isn't the booming business it once was and her brother's decided to sell. And the man who's going to buy is none other than Wes Dalton himself. Beatrice isn't going to let go of Goodwin's without a fight, and soon Dalton realizes that the only thing he wants to win is her heart.
In Bed with the Earl features a bad-ass heroine who isn't afraid to fight for what she wants and a surly hero who'd rather brood and spend time in his sewers than face his past and "take his place" in society. They fight, they kiss, they fight some more...and then some more, and then they fall in love!
This was my first Nalini Singh and it definitely won't be my last! I loved the dynamic between Jake and Juliet - even as they sniped at each other, the underlying currents of attraction - and, yes, care - are there from the start.
I enjoyed The Bad Luck Bride, but had trouble getting invested in the MC's until about halfway through. The second half of the book was much more enjoyable - that's when you really start to understand what motivates Claire and Alex and start rooting for them.
Dear old Colin Can't-Even-Say-Love FitzRoy. You knew when he fell he was going to fall hard, and that it would be absolutely delicious. (It is.) How convenient that the woman he falls in love with is already his wife!
First things first, I would die for Tom Severin. Based on his appearances in previous books in the series, you think he's going to be cold and calculating, but from the minute he sets eyes on Cassandra he completely melts.
The Prince of Broadway is the kind of revenge plot I can get behind. Clay is honest about his intentions towards Florence's father - and her - from the start. Does he tell her everything? NO. But to be fair...he tells her that too. I loved Florence's independence, self-assurance, and ambition.
I snorted the first time I read the title and continued laughing all the way through - when I wasn't falling in love!
Cat Sebastian is truly a master at crafting stories and characters that are wonderfully real and raw. In A Delicate Deception, Amelia is facing the reality of living with severe anxiety, while Sydney is mourning the loss of his brother, whom he believes was the "likeable" brother.
I liked all three books in the Fit Trilogy, but Sated was hands down my favorite. Five stars for sure. The only way it could have been better was if it were a novel instead of a novella! (Because I need more nerds in love, thank you very much.)
