Love Beyond Reason by Sandra Brown. DNF. I sometimes enjoy old Sandra Brown, but I found the prose very clunky and the characters unappealing.
Indecent Proposal by Molly O’Keefe
What tickled my fancy: Strong characters, interesting plot, angst!
What ticked me off: Hero’s senator father was in a scandal involving a car crash and a girl and is named Ted/Teddy. Seriously?
Who might like it: Readers who share my taste for serious contemporaries.
I have no idea why I went from book 3 to book 4 of the “Boys of Bishop” series instead of starting over at the beginning, and I’m kind of kicking myself now, because this is heavily linked to book 2, as book 3 was linked to book 1. On the bright side, it was very much my cup of tea. As a fan of vicarious suffering, I always appreciate it when an author creates characters who hurt each other but are still basically decent.
