Weekly Reading Round-Up

A Princess for the Gentleman by Mindy Burbidge Strunk 51YVgZSsDlL

Since I read An American in Duke’s Clothing I had been hoping for Dawson’s story. Mindy writes a fun and entertaining friendship between Dawson and Tad and it continued through this story. Although I enjoyed the story I admit that I wish I could’ve gotten a little bit more background on Zia. “A russian princess” without any background into what her royal connections were, made it a little difficult to suspend reality. I did however enjoy Zia’s transformation and her sweet romance.

Engaging Sir Isaac by Sally Britton 48495508._SY475_

Sally  Britton is an expert at meet-cutes that make you both sigh and smile. I was a little reluctant to start this one, only because I’m not usually a fan of  books with a “mean girls” sub-plot. However I have not been disappointed with a Sally Britton novel yet, and she did not let me down. Sally didn’t make Isaac completely oblivious or blindsided, he was a true hero. Though Millie struggled with her moral dilemma, Sally gave her both weaknesses and a back bone. The story was witty, redemptive and beautifully done.

Moment of Truth by Kasie West51iV1xrr0oL

This book was so unique, I can’t recall reading a story quite like it before. I loved that I didn’t  know who it would end up being and I was surprised with every turn of the page. Kasie is brilliant, I could read twenty more books from her and never tire of her writing.
