N in this beautifully written story visit the blog to see our interview and my reviewhttpthereadingfrenzyblogspotcom I ve been having some bad luck with one of my fav genreMills BoonReally the last couple of books have been really disappointing and
this is one of thoseDid not like either the hero or heroinei think like either the hero or heroineI think might be getting is one of thoseDid not like either the hero or heroineI think I might be getting of the sheik stories Started off decently enough but after the marriage the sheikh s reasons for eeping her at arms length were not believable 25 35 starsI don t Overcoming the Archon Through Alchemy know what to rate this On one hand it is emotional and angsty with a whirlwind romance in an exotic location and the promise of a fairy tale that ultimately goes unfulfilled On the other hand Khaled was a jerk and I was waiting for the big grovel It never came Instead Cleo just takes him back He was right in thinking she was a mouse The thought of spending the rest of my life with an emotionally disconnected guy like that is so NOT appealing Both characters were emotionally stunted and neither took ownership of their faults It was always someone else s fault they actedreacted the way they didDespite my reservations I want to read another book by this author I did like aspects of her writing style Going to try andeep this short but if
you ve read my reviews before you now there are long because once I get going I just ve read my reviews before you now there are long because once I get going I just t stop and just spilled my guts about every little thing that I think about the plot So if you ve read my reviews in the past I applaud you and thin you for doing so because I What Comes after Entanglement? know they are long and detailed and involved So thanks for baring with me and loving reading as much as I do as well as being as passionate about it That being said here we goJust did a review for Lynne Graham s The Sheikh s Innocent Bride and I ve to say that my first thoughts about this book was what I thought about Lynne Graham s book I just read and I wasind of saying to myself while reading Here I go again I m not going to like this one either I thought to myself that I was having bad luck with Presents lately so I was a little wary as I continued on this I like my heroines virginal and I hate it when a heroine is obsessed with her ex to the point of thinking about him even while having sex with the hero Not a fan of this author. Ing country He'll offer her diamonds and riches but nothing Yet as their marriage plays out in the darkness of the night the passions unearthed threaten to consume them both. .
Don t Bother with this Spoilers aheadCleo Churchill travels lands her in Jhurat where she runs into Sultan Khaled Cleo has been traveling since breaking off her engagement to her cheating fianc e Cleo wants an adventure and a fairy tale while Khaled looks at Cleo as his salvation to show the outside world that his country is not barbaric Khaled wants businesses and investments to come into the country and put down the unrest in the country He figures an American nobody will help turn the world s perception around He will romance her make her fall in love with him and then marry him and provide a fairy tale for the world Overall it was disappointing At any point of time in the story I didn t like the heroine the hero or both The first half the heroine spent an inordinately large amount of time comparing Khaled to her ex fianc e But as Khaled woos her for 3 months before getting married She seems to want the fairytale than the man she never uestions him about his feelings his family Nothing of import But she gets upset at her family when they uestion her Then she has a wakeup call that everything is not happily ever after in her fairy tale she runs instead of fighting It just felt too immatureKhaled was not any better he is condescending and mocking I am the sultan whatever I say is law He only thinks of doing his duty and is flabbergasted when Cleo is uestioning his authority Exactly what did he expect to happen I couldn t understand why he believes that he either could be a husband or ruler and the book didn t convince me with he believes that he either could be a husband or ruler and the book didn t convince me with reason given I thought the ending might just redeem this story but no Cleo gives him an ultimatum to choose her over duty but in Khaled s defense he just learned that there is unrest in his country that he must deal with To me Cleo seems selfish and seemed petty for this it wasn t something
minor like a state dinner or charity function I really didn t expect him to choose her over what he hadlike a state dinner or charity function I really didn t expect him to choose her over what he had do That I understood but Khaled could have tried to show her that while he still must do his duty he will show her he loves her and make up for it when he can But he doesn t Instead it is Cleo who comes back basically saying that it s okay that you put me second place in your life There was no redemption for Kiss me if you are so daring When Cleo Churchill's travels land her in the path of Khaled bin Aziz Sultan of Jhurat she's instantly transfixed by his warrior physiue comman. He hero and the heroine lost all my respect The epilogue shows how they are happy now that they have learned to compromise This pissed me off Seriously this was the big lesson they learned We saw no one takes responsibility no issue gets resolved but everything is fixed in the epilogue because they learned to compromise Since the story didn t make any sense I guess the epilogue wouldn t either Undone by the Sultan s Touch Book Review I absolutely loved this book so intense and emotional The story asks uestions about this trope and Crews makes all the answers work beautifully Why would a nobody from Ohio agree to marry a sultan she barely nows What excuses would she make when the relationship wasn t expecting And most compellingly is it possibly for a man so deeply devoted to his duty above all to love his wife too Highly recommend this modern fairy tale Very different style of M B I love any story that diverts from the standard formula and tries to be uniue Very intense and steamy and the writing is excellent This book does not deserve all the 1 star ratings it has received After Cleo catches her cheating fianc in the act she calls off the wedding and leaves the
States to do some traveling in Europe and the Middle East Through a chance meeting brought aboutto do some traveling in Europe and the Middle East Through a chance meeting brought about a misunderstanding Cleo meets Khaled the Sultan of Jhurat He takes her to his palace but before Khaled lets Cleo go he decides he will romance her make her fall in love with him and then marry her For the sake of his country he thinks a fairytale like story like Grace Kelly will appeal to the public and bring prominence to his country Cleo uickly finds herself falling the handsome and sexy Sultan while Khaled convinces himself that this is duty only although he is finding that is getting under his skin than he wants to admitI thoroughly enjoyed this story and thought that Cleo and Khaled were such great characters I really enjoyed the interplay between the two Khaled all sexy and handsome and expecting to be obeyed because he was the Sultan and Cleo always throwing him for a loop The two seemed completely enad of each other even though Khaled tried to deny his feelingsbut deep down he new the truth Their chemistry was off the charts Lots of passion and emotio. Ding presence and intense eyes But what would a sultan want with an ordinary girl like her Cleo is exactly what Khaled needsa convenient yet beautiful bride to unite his warr. ,
