Two More Contemporary Romances

Two more books for Angie's TBR Challenge.


Title: Just Perfect

Author: Julie Ortolon
Year published: 2005

Why did you get this book? Kristie recommended it and the 1st book in this series, Almost Perfect.

Do you like the cover? I'm not big on cartoon covers, but it's okay.

Did you enjoy the book? Yes, actually I liked it better than Almost Pefect.

Was the author new to you and would you read something by this author again? No, I've read her before.

Are you keeping it or passing it on? Passing it on.

Anything else? I enjoyed this book, I found it entertaining while I was reading it, but it's not a keeper. I'm not a huge fan of Julie Ortolon, I find her books rather hit or miss for me, but this is a good one. I liked the interaction between the characters and her dialogue between men is pretty good, which is really my biggest peeve with contemporary romances, so often the men sound like women sharing their feelings and emotions.




Title: Too Perfect

Author:
Year published: 2005

Why did you get this book? It's the last in a trilogy, though it wasn't recommended, Kristie hated it.

Do you like the cover? Again, not big on cartoon covers, but it's okay.

Did you enjoy the book? It was okay. Not as good as the first 2, but I didn't dislike it as much as Kristie did.

Was the author new to you and would you read something by this author again? No...

Are you keeping it or passing it on? Passing it on.

Anything else? I think the author was hoping to do a fairy tale thing with this one, but it kind of falls short, it's not a horrible book, it's just not good/very good/great.

so are you saying that after the 3rd you've decided not to read the author again?

Well, if someone who I trust recommends her I'll try her again, but I'm not going to be searching her out.

Two outa Three Ain't Bad (I really must get song titles out of my head) Glad you like the third one better than me but looks like we both agree it wasn't as good as the first 2 :)
