To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I know I am in the minority but I just could not get into this book at all. I did not really care about either the hero or heroine, found them both too needy and average. I found the book too wordy and did enjoy the storyline at all. Bit of a disappointment really as I bought this on the good reviews it had been given but it just was not for me at all. Did not bother finishing it in the end.
I read this book before I began doing reviews and was encouraged to read it again by a fellow reviewer (it's one of her favourites). Unfortunately it wasn't one of mine. There are so many reviews and summaries here already so this is more for my record than anything else. I'd classify this book as a mistorical (modern historical romance) where the sex is more important than the story itself. Honestly like someone else already said it's light porn and our h was a virgin in more restricted times - not that you'd know. The plot is ridiculous and a thin disguise for the main characters to do what they please throughout the book. As for the ending where everyone thinks they're married but now the H is courting the h on his own property while she's still single and no one has any isssues?? I'm surprised I went on to buy some many more of this author's works.
I just loved the book that comes after this one, The Duke is Mine. This was so boring, I gave it a go and could only read about a quarter of it. No laugh out loud stuff, nothing romantic in what I did get to in the story. I was very confused what she even kissed him the first time, just couldn't continue.
Well-written but not my cup of tea. Overall I found Colin and Min to be a bit boring. It started off with promise, started to drag a bit in the middle and the end was exceedingly lubby dubby and cheeeesy to the nth degree.
I like historical romances as much as the next girl, especially regencies but this book is just too historically and culturally incorrect. Yeah, Minerva is a geologist who doesn't care if she gets ruined as long as she separates the rake from her sister and as long as she gets to present her findings to other scientists. COMMON!
The hero is completely unlikable to me...he is ridiculous, a blatant and un-repentfull liar who gets in trouble more often than not for these ridiculous lies and we as a reader are supposed to be charmed by this? The sexual tension is there at times but he ends up treating our heroine as a little sister instead of a lover. The heroine is unbelievably ok with sleeping with a man and having sex with him being unmarried as if she was from this century, not a single drop of virginal shame or guilt. For some reason this woman falls head over heels for this stupid buffoon of a hero.
There should have been more of a serious conflict instead of the stupid problems that came from the stupid lies the hero concocted. As I was reading about one stupid adventure after another I was just waiting of it all to end..yes yes I love you, you love me...THE END. This may be many women's cup of tea but I do not like this book at all. I lost all interest in it soon after it began...I am just reading it by bits now cause I dont like to leave a book unfinished if I pay for it. I guess I have gotten accustomed to a better quality of historical romance. This was TOTAL BALDERDASH!
