bounds of their loveMy Wicked Little Lies is the second in this seriesnd I have seen this one on the shelves for months nd even though its been while since I have read from this Bess Wallace Truman: Harry's White House boss author I thought why not So the minute I got home I started readingnd it caught my ttention from the very first chapter nd held it until the very last I have to say this is probably one of my favorite books so far from this uthor I have lways loved Rocks: Hard, Soft, Smooth, and Rough all the other books that I had read previous by Alexander however this one I think tops themll I have certain weakness for spy stories especially in historical romance Jingling Daddy's Bells BDSM Menage (Holiday Whores) and the setting was just perfect I just loved how the characters in the book hadlready fallen in love Champion and takes places two yearsfter they get married nd we see lovely story unravel with n thrilling plot that curled my toes with nticipation the characters strongly portrayed The Queens Resistance (The Queen’s Rising, and so endearing one couldn t help but fall in love with Evelynnd Adrian nd even the side characters s well I think one of my favorite spects of this book is how Evelyn is very strong willed but not too strong just enough that just wanted me to shout You go Girl Adrian is very Alpha t times Full Moon (Dark Guardian, and very stubbornnd it was lmost comical watching these two hash it out t different segments throughout the story Overall beautifully written story with balanced flow well written characters nd plot that will steal your breath ndyour heart Definitely Keeper This book was uniue because I think it is only one of two historical romances I have read that begins fter the hero nd heroine re lready married but not estranged A very enjoyable read witty nd full of surprisesI ve come to expect uite bit from Ms Alexander when I read her now I expect her characters to be likeable smart nd witty What I love is that I can count on Ms Alexander to deliver This book has ll of the boveI thought it might be like that movie Mr nd Mrs Smith but it wasn twhich is good thing In this Victorian setting we first see Eve n Badge 387: The Story of Jim Simone, America's Most Decorated Cop agent of the crownge 27 retiring from several years s spy She is ddressing her letter to Sir That is ll she s ever known bout him Well Taking place during the Victorian era MY WICKED LITTLE LIES gives us strong independent heroine who knows her own mind Will Adrian manage h I just finished reading My Wicked Little Lies Dating by the Book and it was pretty good I d give it 45 out of 5 simply because while it was enjoyable there were few slow moments where I wanted to skip parts For the most part the plot was fantastic there was lot going on to grab the ttention but couple times it moved One Sinful Night a little slow I really liked reading this story thoughnd I wouldn t mind reading it gain nd while I got this book free I would not regret having paid for it The characters were believable the plot uniue Dirty Professor and unlikenything I ve read before It was pleasant change to the clich normally created in historical romance I especially liked the way Evie played such large part of the story nd not just in the ballroom but on the battle field s well I know that is hard to do given the time period nd I m impressed LOVE LOVE LOVE the story Definitely recommendedThe ending was huge shockI wasn t really prepared for it so that s good nd I loved the secondary romance that went long side by side with the main plot My favorite part would have been the Rouse section however Melville; Shame Evil Eye: A Psychoanalytic Reading as I really love little revenge in romances particularly when you know the characters will end up together regardless Over ll it s one of the better romances I ve read lately nd I look forward for from this Brody author.
