Red Hot Obsession (10 book compilation)
I cannot rate the whole book with one rating because the ratings for the stories varied greatly. Plus, there were a few that I did not even waste my time reading. Most are full length novels- meaning between 100-200 pages. I bought the whole collection on sale for 99cents one weekend. I thought that if only one book was entertaining, that was still a good price.
These are the books that I thought were worth reading ♥♥♥
His Wicked Games: A Cunningham Family Novel (His Wicked Games #1) (Ember Casey) – Lily has staked out Calder’s mansion because she wants to force him to honor the agreement his father made regarding a donation to their non-profit organization. Calder is not moved, but then decides he will play a game where the winner takes what they want. They are both dealing with some things.
In the Meh category ♥♥
- Fierce (New Adult Romance) – #1 Fierce Series (Clarissa Wild) – mediocre romance featuring immature college kids (writing a post about this one so I can vent some more)
- Slow Burn (Asassins Book 1) (V. J. Chambers) – unremarkable (wrote a post about this one- really like the hero, but the heroine’s drug addiction and daddy issues grated on my nerves)
- Can’t Shake You (River Bend, #1) (Molly McLain) – unexceptional with annoying characters (writing a post about this one)
- Learning Curves 1: French Cooking 101 (Olivia Rigal) – disappointing (wrote a post about this one- author should have stopped at book 1)
Stories in the compilation that I did not Read ♥
His Indecent Lessons (Sky Corgan)– synopsis: Professor’s carnal knowledge lessons with a student. My opinion: Not for me. I tried to read it but the heroine was annoying and immature sounding. She was a college student so that probably has a lot to do with it. The professor’s lesson (the one scene I read as I tried to finish) sounded clinical instead of romantic.
Sorority Pledge Collection: Steamy Books 1-5 (Sorority Pledge Saga)(Daizie Draper) – six novellas and no happy ending until book 10? I’ll pass. I’m not buying another 4 books for a potentially lackluster story.
Billionaires in Disguise: Rae (Complete Series, Episodes 1-9): A Romance Novel(Blair Babylon) – synopsis: Part one of the story about a college girl romance with billionaire. Started reading it but did not finish because (1) the last 3 books (see above) were strike outs (2) I was tired of reading first person point of view stories and (3) the heroine seemed to be making some unwise choices. On a separate but kind of related note, I read another book by the same author (part of the same Billionaires in Disguise series) and I was indifferent towards those characters as well.
