A Matter of Time (#4) - Mary Calmes Terrible, there's just no other word for it. I liked this series well enough at the beginning and I adore Mary Calmes' Change of Heart series, but this is just plain ridiculous. Jory meets new people. Boom. Everybody loves Jory. Boom. Problem solved. This is the pattern for the whole series, but in this book it gets to the point where it's annoying. There's no character development at all, except maybe that Sam becomes even less likable and I ended up unsure who of the two main characters I disliked more.Add the non-existence of commas and this book is a total no-go for me. I couldn't even bring myself to finish it.
Crow and Firefly - Sam C. Leonhard I admit, I bought this book because the cover immediately caught my eye on Dreamspinner. It's very refreshing to see such beautiful cover art when most art for romance books makes me want to run screaming, and it reminds me of my favorite two Norse gods.It's short, too short for in-depth character development. But I really love Ari and that he's not your typical male-damsel-in-distress. The take on shifters and their status in society is very interesting, I'd definitely like to read some more of that. The plot twist at the end was a bit predictable, but I don't mind tropes at all if they're well-written.A short but satisfying read. I'm torn between three and four stars, but since the blurb said it was written by a fellow fandom person from South-Germany, it's four stars from me. I assume she's an ESL person, and writing in a different language takes effort.
Riding the Storm - Sydney Croft In one word: boring. I gave up on this halfway through because I couldn't bring myself to care about any of the characters, I always felt quite distanced from them. As for the often quoted amount of sex, I don't think there's such a thing as too much sex if it's well written and hot. Maybe I'm spoilt, but the sex in this was lukewarm and uninspired.
Bound by deception - Ava March Not a bad read. The characters are likeable, especially Oliver, but due to the rather short length I find that the plot and the solution of the conflict between the characters are too rushed to be really emotionally satisfying.
