Pride and Fire Reviews
Pride and Fire by Jo Marie DeGioia #2 in her interesting "Dashing Nobles" series. Can be read as a stand alone. A unique storyline but, I had a hard time liking or connecting with the characters. The story does have intrigue, betrayal, suspense, passion, sexually intensive, blackmail, deceit, violence and romance. Can the H/H come to grip with their inner conflicts, and find healing, forgiveness and their HEA?There was something difficult to enjoy about the H/H, while both are intelligent, strong-willed, and independent characters, they seem to come off as sad, pathetic people. However, with this said it is an enjoyable read with some twists and turns. Would I read the next installment, yes, I would! Received for an honest review from Net Galley. However, all opinions and thoughts are my own. Rating: 4Heat rating: Mild to hot due to the violence Reviewed by: AprilR
LOVED IT!!!!! :)
I enjoyed "Pride and Fire" by JoMarie DeGioia, this is the first book I have read by the author, looks like this is number two in a series, but can be read as a stand alone.Paul was intrigued by Michelle when they met about a year ago, but he wouldn't allow himself to get close to her. Michelle actually believed that Paul didn't care for her at all, he gave her cold looks and didn't speak to her.Paul didn't want to get married or have any entanglements with Michelle, but after a dance or two changed his mind very quickly. It was kind of a surprise, there was chemistry between them, but his mind flipped like a switch.They are a nice couple, they love and care about each other. Michelle at times comes off as strong and opinionated, which Paul loves, until she questions him. I didn't like that Paul wanted to keep his work secret from her and the state of his finances. There is a betrayal and Paul was almost over the top in his nastiness to Michelle. And for me, he was very close to me losing all respect for him during their separation.There is a lot of passion and sex scenes, the love scenes are very frequent and passionate rather than steamy.Good read, I enjoyed the story, I liked Michelle better than I liked Paul most of the time.I received a complimentary copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
Review Blurb:I tried with great difficulty to love the story, but found the characters were inconsistent in both behavior and action to what I expected. One minute Michelle is strong-willed and opinionated and the next she is cowering over Paul’s expletives and anger. I do not know that I ever understood Paul’s quick turnaround from keeping Michelle at a distance to claiming her as his.Please see full review at Just Erotic Romance Reviews: http://bit.ly/twmDAX
I enjoyed this book. The two character a sweet, but suborn. Their stubbornness sometime gets them in trouble, but their love is stronger and helps them.
Five stars!!I love how Michelle and Paul find their love of each other, through all the twists and turns they endured together.
Excellent seriesI would highly recommend the series to anyone who wants a little bit of Mystery, romance and of course a happy ending
Paul Swooooon! What an amazing book 2 in the series. Just as in book 1 it flowed perfectly. There was just the right amount of everything. Looking forward to Roberts story in book 3
