Contemporary Romance

Mr. Trouble - Nana Malone

Mr. Trouble is a fun contemporary romance by Nana Malone.  Ms. Malone has delivered a well-written book.  It is written in the first person, alternating point of view format, which I'm not a fan of.  The story is so good though I can overlook that.  Jarred has had his trust fun cut off by his father.  Kinsley has received notice that her apartment is going to be sold plus she has to evacuate for fumigation.  Kinsley and Jarred's story is a fun read and loaded with drama, humor and sizzle.  I enjoyed reading Mr. Trouble and look forward to reading more from Nana Malone soon.  Mr. Trouble is book 1 of the London Billionaire Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Disappointing

Single Dad SEAL - Charlize Starr

Single Dad SEAL by Charlize Starr is a very short read.  Very short.  I read Single Dad SEAL and it ended at 6% of the book.  I had no wish to read any further stories.  The best I can say about this writing style is over-eager teenager.  That's what I felt like I was reading.  A book written by a very young girl.
