    One thought on “The Price of Desire”

    1. She was about to follow a strange man into a warzone, but there was chocolate.The cover of the copy I read was sexier and didn't prepare me for the complexity of the politics, religion, and culture and how it affects morality. I also flexed my vocabulary, which I haven't been able to do for many books lately. The h and H are flawed and have had traumatic childhoods. The intimacy is real, not romanticized, and isn't pages upon pages.Some of the world building/backstory I wasn't interested in and [...]

    2. This was the third series by PJ Fox that I've read. Being familiar with her writing style I knew to expect the bulk of the first book to be about a female mc who doesn't like the lead male,mr tall, dark and handsome. And, despite her dislike she will be forced into a relationship/marriage with the guy. I also expected great writing and philosophical inner dialogue. I was surprised when at 64% of the way through I still couldn't stand Aria, the female lead. She seemed so ungrateful and irrational [...]

    3. Extraordinary story!Incredibly fascinating! This extraordinary story smoothly outlines the unique personalities of each character of this amazing tale. With beautiful sceneries and epic elaborations the author has brand my thoughts with her simple yet outstanding writing skills. I was effortlessly imprisoned by the eloquence of the author and I must say I am left completely blown away. High five goes to the author, the plot, the characters and the rich meaning of the story itself. I enjoyed ever [...]

    4. Only O.K.What started out as an intriguing story, turned out to be a bore. P.J. writes pages and pages of long winded details that end up reading like a history book suitable for a high school classroom. It broke the relevant story up into bits, and I literally glossed over entire paragraphs to get to the meat of things. I couldn't relate to the characters at all. Not that a person has to to enjoy a good story. The H in the story was interesting enough for me to pick up the second book in the se [...]

    5. This may be my least favorite of PJ's books, but I'm going to keep reading because I really like being in her characters head. PJ has a teacher/philosopher style of writing of which I like.

    6. This scifi/romance book started out interestingly enough, but then it started dragging halfway through and never recovered. Part of it due to all the introspection by the heroine on whether she was giving in too much to the hero and her circumstances. Mainly though it was all the telling not showing - regarding the political history of the hero's home world and his history/background, regarding why the heroine ran away from her family, etc. I'm pretty certain there were multiple parts of the boo [...]
