Don t et me wrong I enjoyed reading it but only because I was in the mood for something totally cliche that didn t reuire much brain power A big turn off for me for this book was that they were both impossibly beautiful Why do authors think we want to read about two perfect people falling in love Completely unrelatable It wasn t a problem that he was radiating masculine beauty
Until I Found Out She Was Also Ethereally BeautifulI Was I found out she was also ethereally beautifulI was while I read it but in the same way that I try not to laugh during the scene in Twilight where Edward is trying to stop sucking Bella s blood all
While Emmett And Jasper Are Emmett and Jasper are a tribal fire dance in the background If that made any sense Fun typical easy read about a rather meaningless romance Sorry to those who loved it This book is a favourite of mine because I am a sucker for a sweeping fantasy an epic romance and a lead female that oes from strength to strength ueen in Exile is a book I have re read several times now because I class it as one of my comfort books The plot flows effortlessly and the characters are engaging but beautifully complex Jeniah is a beautiful person inside and out and I will forever be in love with Kai because I would love a knight in shining armour Yes I know I m meant to be a strong independent woman so sue me to sweep me off my feet The battle is long and hard for both characters and the ending is hard fought for literally and even the romance has to be fought for There s a message here that I like to hold on to and that s that all the ood stuff in life is worth fighting for and it won t be won easily A charming romantic and fantastical novel that will entrance any reader I had a lot of problems with this story Both characters were Traditions Of Maimonideanism (Ijs Studies In Judaica) gorgeous and they spent plenty of time mooning over the physical perfection of the other Despite the action most of it feels like a dramatic teen romance T I really really enjoyed this book It was a beautifully written fantasy romance with a clean romance that I just loved The touch of fantasy that was thrown in made it areat read for me It s pure escapism so that made it perfect for the mood I was in I ll be looking for by this author I think unless I pick up a romance novel I really don t want very much romance in my book If it is very very secondary I don t mind but if it s the main point of the story I m not interested I think I ve Kemilau Cinta - Brighter Than the Sun grown less tolerant in this area than I ve been in the past It seems like the romance here was a little too sickeningly sweet and I don t want that in my fantasy novelsThe characters just didn t do it for me here I might have been able toet past the romance if I had really liked the characters but I didn t connect with them Jeniah seemed like a typical YA heroine who chaffed at the roles she was iven There didn t seem to be anything particularly original about her The chayim thing was different but I didn t et into the book enough for me to careThere was one point in the story a couple of sentences where I knew that I couldn t read any It was just too muchAs she Red November: Inside the Secret U.S.-Soviet Submarine War gazed at him she realized that her feelings for him had surpassed friendly affection At that instant she freely and willinglyave him her heart even sensing that he still shielded his against herI think someone who enjoys fantasy romance might really like this one but it just wasn t my style at all I m not sure that I d read any by this author especially with my TBR pile being what it is I ave this one over 100 page.

The only hope for freeing her people from tyrannyOn the run and hunted by enemy soldiers Jeniah must place her life and the fate of her kingdom in the hands of this trained killer Torn between embracing her destiny as ueen af Arden and her love for a mere knight she must ultimately rely on her magic to save herself and her people from death and tyran.
