Mini Reviews #5: Blissfully Out of the Ocean Breeze Rain with a Prince


Author: Sherryl Woods
Series: Yes
Source: Bought
Finished or ARC: Finished
Stars: 5 Starfish
 
 My summary:
Go on an adventure with three incredible sisters who find that home is the best to be and that romance may come out of nowhere and give you a reason to stay.
 
Review:
Sherryl Woods is an adult fiction writer that I would recommend if anyone asked. It's not how she writes that gets me, it's the story. I love the stories she comes up with, and the Ocean Breeze books are a great example. Great love stories with a flare of drama. The characters are very different from each other so their stories each have a certain personality to them. The only thing about this series that makes me sad that its only a trilogy. And the last book didn't have a big epilogue to it - like a 5 years later thing. No, just a one year thing. It sucked. But don't let that stop you from picking up this great series.

Review: I've never read anything by this author, but apparently she has several best sellers out. And I can see why. Once Upon a Prince was a great read, except for one little detail.
 
The story starts off strong and really gets your emotions going. the thing is that what happens is our heroine gets her heart broken immediately - like, in the first five pages. But then her knight (or prince) in shinning armor comes in and saves the day. Sure, the plot is kinda cheesy, but that cheesiness makes it great. And sure the characters are a little clich√©, but the stubborn women and prince who can't get what he wants but wants to save the day anyways makes the cheesiness complete. We all need a cheesy novel once in a while.
 
The flaw: they fall in love in two weeks. It's not insta-love/love-at-first-sight, but damn close. I wish their romance went on a little longer. But it's a great read anyway.

Review:  I love Debbie Macomber. Her books are like crack to me. LOVE THEM!!! Sure, many of you wouldn't like some of her stories because of the insta-love crap and some of the too cheesy plots, but like I said earlier, everyone needs to read a cheesy love story now and then. This book is romantic and cheesy enough to make anyone smile. I loved it. End of story.

Review: Entangled Publishing has been known to publish great books like our favorite series about a seriously hot alien. Their Bliss series is a great addition to their books. They are the type of books that are a quick read with awesome characters, comedy, love, and drama. It's a book series to read when you are bored. They a great. End of story.
