My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I read this book so very long ago that it’s probably hardly fair to review it, really. I will say that I loved it at the time, and I’m interested to discover now from other reviews that it was intended as a subversion of the traditional romance novel. A little irony there, because the gay relationship struck me as the very essence of Harlequin, barring the homosexuality.

The beast and its attacks are extremely vivid and beautifully, horrifically described.

Three point five. Nice attraction between the MCs, and an interesting combo of house restoration and magic!

I’m not much of a fan of self-consciously sparse, tight writing – no thanks – but this was a bit too elaborate in style for me.

Great fun read, and Amoruso seems like she would be the funnest person to hang out with. Her sheer drive and wit and energy are inspiring – it’s just a shame that Nastygal itself seems to have crashed and burned, judging by the news stories. Still, I’m sure that Amoruso will rise from the ashes. (I just hope she’s managed to hang on to some of the money, after all her hard work.)

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Very dry, flat style of writing, but still a very interesting idea and leads to the conclusion with a lot of apprehension and suspense.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Quite a sad story given the era in which it’s set, in spite of the ending. It leads more to thoughts about the tragedy of war than of romance.

Loved the premise, and the execution lived up to it. Loved Orlando especially, a sweetie. Dialogue was good, unfussy and realistic. yay for happy endings.
