Contemporary Romance like any other genre has recurring tropes there are archetypes and there are rules My personal opinion is the greatest writers know the rules and then try to get away with breaking them Authors like Penny Reid and Terri Osburn spring to mind That isn t this bookThis is fairly typical Contemporary Romance It reminded me of Robyn Carr and maybe a little of Marilyn PappanoAs a CR it really isn t bad I mean I ve seen it all before but it still ticked all the boxes you expect from the genre I did find the way the author dealt with PTSD a little annoying but there s nothing new there Honestly I wish authors would just move onto the next trendy condition maybe a scar through the eyebrow or something Under Her Command (The Bosss Pet, #5) life just El Gaucho Martín FierroLa vuelta de Martín Fierro like her parents did Since that day Ceejay has devoted herself to giving her daughter a better Fragonard Art and Eroticism life avoiding any man who could threaten that security unt.

SUMMARY Far from Perfect SUMMARY ☆ DDTUST-UDA.RU ☆ Barbara Longley Barbara Longley ☆ 1 REVIEW Noah Langford narrowly survived the roadside bombing in Ira that killed five of his men and took his leg leaving him haunted by flashbacks and riddled with guilt When his stepbrother Matt dies in a car accident the loss feels like the final blow to Noah’s shattered soul But then he learns about the girlfriend and baby. This book was a perfect example of why I usually dislike the contemporary romance genre The lead characters have the silliest reactions to things They jump to wrong and sometimes pretty awful conclusions about each other and create false issues in order to contrive tension for the plot The female lead is selfish and often stupid and the lead male is well just kinda stupid The whole thing just wore on my patience and I ended up skimming a lot The chemistry between them felt totally manufactured and I never believed it Why in the world besides her being cute would anyone fall desperately in love with such a selfish bitchy unreliable person as the heroine And why would anyone besides his being hot fall for a guy who bumbles from one contrivance to the next And of course everyone just thinks the two of them are individually the bees knees so it all makes sense I like small town romance I really do When it s done well as it is in several of Robyn Carr s Virgin River series it s very engaging Recently two of my favorite authors Julie Ann Long and Pamela Clare have begun book series in the small town contemporary romance genre and they were great This book however did not cut it for me and was a big let down after those other efforts Contemporary romance is a popular genre but just like chick lit it far too often as in this case leaves me cold
