Finding Their Balance, M.Q. Barber

 

amazon UK buy link  Amazon com link

Genre:   Romance, Erotica

I’ve adored this series from the start, thought I’d love this book, and was kind of puzzled, disappointed at it not working well for me.

Its difficult to explain, but this time I felt it was very Club heavy, Henry’s words which I usually love seemed a bit ponderous, extraneous at times. Usually his voice makes me shiver almost, but this time, I just wanted to say “ c’mon, get to the point”. I can see where they’ve all grown so much, that they’re conquering fears both Alice and Jay have, and the balance they need is coming but…I just didn’t enjoy it.

I guess what I’ve loved is the struggles, the way things have been misunderstood, the drama that caused, and the journey up to them all being together. I like the outside bits, the picnic, the cabin, the Tuesday lunches, the art exhibition from one of the early books, and I missed those touches here. Its very focussed on the Club, Emma and Cal and the problems they cause for the trio. Henry’s worked hard and they’ve done well, but I missed the problems and issues * shrug* maybe? I don’t know, can’t seem to put my finger on anything really, just that this book hadn’t the magic of the earlier ones for me. Still, I’m just one voice and I can see its perfect for others – that’s they way it is with reading, its very subjective and what works for one doesn’t for another.

I’m glad I read this, but it won’t be a keeper and I think maybe its time for me and the trio to part ways.

Stars: Three, one of those that’s good but not right for me.

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.
