3.0 out of 5 stars A little less talk, a lot more action., March 14, 2010
This review is from: Mad, Bad and Blonde (Berkley Sensation) (Mass Market Paperback)
I usually do not review books, instead preferring to read the synopsis (synopsii?) already written. However, this book made me nuts and almost made the DNF pile. My main gripe is the constant references to the the hero's former Marine status. I almost - just to prove my point - went back through and counted how many references to being a former Marine, a warrior, or some other needless reference to Marine-dom. My husband was a Marine (I was Navy), we met in A School and I lived next door to the Marine barracks, and I don't think we've said the word Marine as much as the author did in this book. I get that he's tough and hard-core, I don't need reminders every other paragraph. A lot of snappy dialogue, with luke-warm love scenes. And honestly, this may very well be my own issue with the book, especially since I tend to gravitate toward authors like Gena Showalter and Kresley Cole who write about real bad-a$$ guys and there is very little dialogue used to have to convince the reader of that, plus the love scenes are, um, lovelier ;).
