A few books that I struggled with for various reasons.
The Next by Rafe Haze. Couldn't stand the writing.
Recovery by Con Riley. Ho hum romance took a back seat to a long examination of a mother's death from cancer.
Dance by Teodora Kostova. Rushed unbelievable relationship. All telling, no showing. Overall amateurish writing.
Les Recidivists. Sequels huh? Two separate couples vie for attention in this disappointing sequel. The M/F couple are poorly matched and the woman in particular is a vulgar psycho. The M/M couple are unrecognizable from the excellent first book.
