Watcha Readin' Wednesday

I braved the overdue charges and kept Lori Foster's Never Too Much until I'd finished it. What the heck, might as well donate a little cash to the ole bibliotecha, no?

Sierra and Ben are fun together, lots of joking and teasing. The secondary romance is also fun to watch unfold. Foster gives us a realistic take on domestic violence and reminds us how long it can keep haunting its victims. I felt a little...lost toward the end of the book. Kept waiting for the proverbial "other shoe", you know, the curve in the story arc, the "dark moment". As I got closer and closer to the end, I kept wondering what sort of roadblock the romance would run into, and still be resolved in the thin section of book left... This wasn't one of those stories. Some personal problems the characters had were resolved and that was that. The hero and heroine knew they loved each other, so it was over. Definitely not formulaic.

Since the characters pulled me in and kept me, even past my "due date", I rate this book a Keeper. I'd highly recommend it, and promise you won't regret your time with it.

Still reading Realityland...very interesting stuff. I am a HUUUUUGE Walt Disney World fan and while this book is a bit slow......tons of details and names and things that I don't necessarily need, the book so far is interesting.
