Clearly I need to expand my reading selection!
That's too bad they weren't as good as you'd hoped!
I'm usually pretty picky, but I totally bought the instalove in REAL. The book still had issues for me, but for some reason I didn't mind them as much as I normally do.
I just finished up a few books, and seriously of the last five I've read, only one has rated above a two-star. I think there are a lot of under-worked editors out there... and I need to take a break from New Adult books. Time to pick one from my historical romance TBR pile!
I should have phrased it better, I meant the instalove comment about Connected, but its growing on me 3/4 in.
No, in REAL I got the romance, but as you said, it's probably the other 'issues' that bothered me. ie his 'issue' didn't seem realistic to me, IMO. But I will admit that the ending, well I didn't see it coming, so that's why it went from a 3 to 3.5 for me.
And I don't usually like romantic comedies either, but Wallbanger was so incredibly well done for romance with just great comedy mixed in, it surprised the heck out of me!
OH and I forgot that on Friday I finished up Second Chance Boyfriend by Monica Murphy and loved it, even more than the first one. I really
like her writing style and characters.
