Delightful, Big Sky Pie 3, Adrianne Lee

Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.

I love contemporary romance with the Bad Boys in them…but ICE didn’t really turn out to be that, more of just a famous boy. 😦 Yes, he’s master of the one night stand and anti romance and love, hearts and flowers but that doesn’t make him a bad boy in my eyes, just a cautious one.

So, we’ve the Reality show being filmed in a pie shop…seems a bit odd to me, but then so does the concept of “reality TV” – it’s actually nothing like reality – would be my worst nightmare to go on one of those! I can see why Andrea has reservations – I would too. I liked Andrea, fun and quirky, and a loving mum and good friend. She’s the back bone of small towns, the core that make everything flow but not what TV shows need – they want the rows, the bitching, the backstabbing – but they didn’t get it from Andrea. What Ice and co did get though, was far too many moments where Andrea slipped, tripped, fell, and dumped pie everywhere. She wasn’t always that clumsy surely so why now? To be honest first one was believable, surprise does stuff like that to anyone, but the rest took the romance into farce land for me. It detracted, wasn’t funny just irritating.

I couldn’t get into the whole Ice as famous yet in hiding, internet stalking etc and the show based on a pie shop at all. I kept wondering how it ever kept going, its a small shop/café and yet the staff numbers were large for a shop that seemed hardly ever open – not counting the days closed through disasters. The sex scenes between Ice and Andrea were pretty hot, but not enough to pull the story up from an OK for me. Too much shop and slapstick and not enough Ice/Andrea romance for me. Maybe I’m just overly critical, or had too much expectation. I hadn’t read earlier books either, so that could factor although I doubt it. Never the less I’m one person and one view – you make your own decision 🙂

Priced at £1.49 for 188 pages, it was a bit short for me, didn’t really give the romance time to develop but then I love long books, whereas others love novels they can read quickly or put down and pick up later.

Stars: 3. Not bad just not great either.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
