Merger to Marriage, (Boardrooms & Billionaires 2) Addison Fox
Genre: General Fiction (Adult) , Romance
Some books I love, others not so much even though its clear other readers adore them. This is one such read.
I found the story was OK but kind of bland. Mayson was nice, her sisters were nice, Holt was nice, his friends were nice…you get the picture. His mother was a first class b itch, and I’d like to have seen more of her but…
I really didn’t feel any chemistry between Mayson and Holt, they respected each other as business individuals but that was it. No love, no lust, the most I can feel between them is a faint like, and that doesn’t work for me in a romance read. I want to feel they just can’t keep away, they have to touch, caress, kiss all the while ( well, within reason ).
I only read this yesterday and I’m having a hard time this morning actually recalling what happened. It just wasn’t a read that made it for me, although of course its perfect for others. I need drama, angst, emotions and plots that make me feel will things work out, are there just too many things against them, scenes where it’s the couple v whatever plots can tear them apart. This book, well I didn’t get any of that.
I hadn’t read book one, though they’re stand alone reads so that wasn’t necessary, but might have made some events clearer.
Its perfectly written, just the the story itself just isn’t one for me. It might be perfect for you if you’re looking for a light and easy, innocuous romance, me – I need a bit more. Horses for courses and all that…
Stars: 2.5/3, it was a story that was a forgettable read for me, but which will be perfect for other people. You choose.
