Book Review- Lord Blackwood´s Virgin by Vivienne Wilmont

Book Description

  A sacrificial virgin upon the altar of a demon cult. A handsome lord to rescue her. A wedding. An eager bridegroom. An innocent bride. 

Lord Blackwood embarks into matrimony with his virginal bride in great anticipation. He knows one thing is true. Before the night is over his lovely obsession will be a virgin no more. 

The WEDDING NIGHT DIARIES are a series of fan-fiction inspired short stories giving the reader a “behind-the-keyhole” account of the wedding night adventures of some famous couples you may already know, but if you don’t you’ll soon know a lot more about them than you ever imagined. *snickering* 

***CONTENT RATING*** 
This book is intended for mature readers 18 years and older due to language and scenes of an intimate nature. *more snickering* 

My Thoughts

I´ve read quite a few Raine Miller books years back and this is by far my least favorite from the author’s collection.Lord Blackwoods virgin

Before I begin with my thoughts I´d like to add that this book was a gift from a friend who swore on all that´s pink and fluffy that this novella was absolutely worth a read.

I also have to admit that after reading the description I couldn´t help but notice the questionable „snickerings“. Who snickers in their descriptions? For me- that´s a bit unprofessional, even for a writer who has other great works published. Or, the „snickerings“ are apart of some insider joke. Who knows. I think it´s odd.

I´m glad I didn´t buy this book.

A historical setting with little story, little depth and a whole lot of sex. 104 pages worth of smoochy smoochy and poking the one-eyed snake underneath a skirt.

Don´t get me wrong- I´m all for good sex in romance novels. Throw in a good amount of sex, if you feel the need to. But add the sex to the story. Not the other way around. Because, if you take the sex out of this little pocket-book you´d have nothing left to read.

viv
Thick as a newspaper. Enough sex for 3 books.

Raine Miller likes to add hot and steamy scenes in her stories but this one just took the cake. I feel like my time has been robbed. Nothing enjoyable for me. Cheeky, totally off the charts sex that was clearly written for readers who don´t want a story to interrupt their horniness.

Would I reread this book? No. As a matter of fact… I gave it back to my friend with a small note that said:

„I love you. But please, never gift me a book ever again.“

Would I recommend this book? No.

The Cover – 5 stars ( For a Historical….a truly beautiful image. I usually think all Historical book covers are tacky but this one is just down right beautiful.)

The Story – 1 star ( 90% sex, 10% story. )

The Characters – 1 star ( What´s there to say about characters who do nothing productive besides have sex? Were they relatable? Loving, caring? Well, I can say there wasn´t any rape involved * SNICKERS * I can´t applaud the act itself because…. they had sex. No one gives me a round of applause for having sex. * SNICKERS * )

My emotional state after finishing this read – A big NOPE.

I´m giving `Lord Blackwood´s Virgin` by Vivienne Wilmont ( a.k.a Raine Miller ) 1 out of 5 stars.

Review- Roomies by Lindy Zart

Book Description

Graham Malone is my roommate, my personal eye candy, the reason I get up in the morning smiling (that could be from the illicit dreams I have about him too, I suppose. Let’s move on.). He’s also beautiful to look at, but his heart is where his true beauty lies. Take away the exterior and the interior still shines. 

I love him. I mean, I’m pretty sure I do, having never been in love before. Anyway, it seems legit. 

And now his brother Blake is here, and, well, he’s the complete opposite of Graham. Sarcastic, brooding, and totally available. But he’s leaving soon, and Graham’s the one I want. I shouldn’t have to remind myself of this, right? I wouldn’t have to if Blake would quit looking at me like I’m something yummy and he’s starving.

Here’s a toast to roomies; the ones you should never fall in love with. Or something.

My Thoughts

If there ever was a book character who could be my twin, it would definitely be Kennedy, the Heroine from `Roomies` written by Lindy Zart.

I swear on all that´s pink and fluffy…. that girl… her thoughts, her actions… It was as if the author spied on me my whole life. I was fascinated and terrified at the same time because I kept telling myself „ Yeah, that could have been me. I say that all the time. I would have done the exact same thing!“ and that´s when I realized the Heroine and I had more in common. Scary shit, I tell you.

Besides the above I totally enjoyed `Roomies`. It´s funny, it´s charming, it´s cute. You actually feel like you´re reliving the time you had a serious crush on your best friend ( That´s how it was for me, at least. Don´t know about you, though. Lol ). It´s a catchy romance with a touch of angst.

The writing style is genius. Simple with a nice flow and totally entertaining. It felt like the book was having a nice convo with me ( or my pathetic self and I * hangs head * ). I enjoy that kind of style because it´s not so demanding.

As for the romance- I felt it. I suffered, laughed and loved with Kennedy. She was such a lovable, quirky figure. Not at all your typical Mary Sue.

Graham and Blake- let´s say I was team Graham from the start. Graham was / is the perfect roomie. Good looks, polite, clean…. a guy any woman could easily fall in love with. Blake, on the other hand ( Graham´s brother ), was okay but he just didn´t have much of a purpose other than making Graham jealous. In my humble opinion, the story would have been just as good without him. But that´s just me being weird.

Anyways- There´s no real threat in `Roomies` other than Blake and Graham fighting over Kennedy in their own special ways. Blake fights dirty, Graham more carefully until shit gets real and he fights dirty too * clapping hands* So exciting!

The only complaint I have is that this was a super short read. It felt rushed. But other than that…I loved every bit of it.

A recommendable read for any romance lover with a quirky side.

The Cover – 5 stars ( Lovely! It´s colorful. It´s cute. It grabs my attention.)

The Story – 4 stars ( The story isn´t really original but still well told. Great writing. A tad too short )

The Characters – 4 stars ( I have so much love for the Heroine. Graham was another favorite because he´s the exact opposite from Kennedy. I could have done without Blake, though )

My emotional state after finishing this read– Utterly happy!

I´m giving `Roomies`, by the awesome Lindy Zart, 4 out of 5 stars
