Books, Books, Books!

A number of years ago I stumbled across a books called Tempting the Beast by Lora Leigh. I was pulled into the world and the characters. Now I have just finished Rule Breaker.

Rule Breaker is book 29 in the Breeds series. I have read pretty much each and every one of them with a couple of exception that were novellas in anthologies. You could say I am invested in finding out how the series continues.

I can’t imagine it being easy to maintain a series for this length of time. As I mentioned when I talked about Nalini Singh’s Psy/Changeling series, I love how she is bringing the current arch to an end. J.D. Robb is a master at it. I have no idea how many In Death books there are, but every time you read one she grounds you in her world and gives you context who everyone is. I still enjoy Lora Leigh’s writing and I love seeing characters I’ve either followed on their journey or characters I want to see find their HEA, but I struggled with the first third of Rule Breaker.

The author expected you to remember everything and I didn’t. There was very little to ground me in the world or help to orientate myself on who was who. Some characters are more memorable, Jonas, for example, but he has appeared in every single book, but a lot of the names were without context to me. This meant I read one or two other books while Rule Breaker sat on my shelf. By the way, totally random side note, after 28 books that were ALL PAPERBACK, why the heck did they think it was a good decision to put book 29 into hardcover?! It is a bit of brick and a nightmare to lug around. And it totally doesn’t fit with all the other books on the shelf and nerd that I am I like my books to fit.

Anyway, the beginning was a little rough, but once the story got going and Gypsy Rum (yes, the names in this book were…interesting; not sure if that was on purpose or by accident) and Rule got together I was back in the story. If you like scorching hot sex and emotional roller-coaster rides Rule Breaker is the book for you.

  1. I’ve recently read the third book in the All Souls trilogy by Deborah Harkness and I loved it soo much that I’ve just started to re-read the first, A Discovery of Witches. It’s just as delicious as I remembered.
