    One thought on “Released”

    1. Not a bad effort for a Regency romanceI'm not sure I'd consider this to be erotic, there's only a few sex scenes and they're mostly oral but it is quite a decent Regency romance with two interestingly drawn characters and a good setting.

    2. I loved this book. It was one of those I started reading on the bus, then swore when I got to work and proceeded to sneak off at every opportunity to read another chapter or two before devouring whole heartedly the second I got home.The plot isn't anything special, following the classic trope of 'lover with a dark secret waiting to be revealed' but it hits those beats with pretty perfect timing to keep the suspense up without over egging it to the point it becomes annoying. What really makes the [...]

    3. This book started off with a good premise, but the promise of it fell through. I'm not completely opposed to insta-love. However, there must be acceptable axioms in story/world building to make it work. It didn't work here. Even then, I didn't give up on the story, though it had so much more potential than was realized. I almost feel angry on its behalf. In particular, the last few chapters of the book felt like complete rubbish. It was filled with enough salacious content that seemed included f [...]

    4. Geez, I bought all the books in this series and the next before I'd even read the first book. I don't know if that's a good thing or not considering how disappointed I am with Released, book 1. It started off nicely and very promising but the unnecessary verbosity I had to wade through to get to one good, lively, sentence or particle of lively dialog between Jim and Lionel is unbelievable.All the pages and pages of Lionel and Jim's tedious 'misunderstandings' of each other's motive and their inn [...]

    5. 2.5 stars rounded down.This wasn't as good as I was hoping for. The stuff with Lord Dixon was awkward and unnecessary, and the instalove might have worked better had the two MCs actually spent more than a few days with each other. The switching back and forth between character pov's happened far too often for me, and there was a lot more telling than showing going on. I have the next two books in the series already downloaded, but to be honest, I don't think I'll ever read them, because I really [...]
