The Tycoon’s Revenge [A Book Review]


A Book Review

There is a good story in there about Jasmine and Derek’s lost years because of their misunderstanding and Jasmine’s father’s deceit. There is a good story of a father reuniting with his son after losing ten years [never mind the way they meet and the conversation soon after is very awkward]. However, it is clouded with the author’s quest to keep the misunderstanding a misunderstanding until the end of the story. A simple direct conversation quarter way through the novel, could clear all that unnecessary drama. If the author thought she would lack material, she could focus on the worker at the newly acquired Titan Medical howling out revenge at Derek. The author could even explore more in the relationship between Jasmine and her father. Even tap more deviously into Amy’s quest to have Derek.

Clearly, the story has potential but the author chose to introduce Derek’s cousins in such a non connective way and the sex scenes were blah. At one point I said, the novel is an excuse to have sex scenes between Jasmine and Derek. It seemed the focus of the story started flattering way. They both claim self control and the tendency to be head strong yet fall into each other’s pants when they do not want to? Really?[By the way Rated M for Mature scenes]. I was so disappointed that the author chose the table method for the couple’s first sex act after 10 years. Only the last chapter sort of saved the connection as a romance and not just sexual chemistry.

I was disappointed that the author introduced Jasmine as an independent and determined woman, yet she allowed Derek to control everything in her life. From her body to her future and backed it up with the good of her son. Really? I am disappointed that Derek to the very end used the church setting and his dad to execute revenge on Jasmine, yet convinced himself that he is tortured whether he love her or not and suddenly, he understood and his love shine brighter than before.

Another post for Reading Month 2015. Have you read this novel? please do share with me your views.


Claiming by Saskia Knight: Book Review


Claiming (Novel)

Novella Published January 16th 2014

  A combination of attraction and the result of two lustful world colliding. The former line serves as an apt assessment of Claiming. I felt that the story was too short and certain events like Rowena’s fear of the Tower could be a lengthier subplot to add more taste to a vivid story. However, it is  a novella so what can I say? Claiming introduced me to the shortest courtship in the history of getting to know someone. It was dynamic and attention grabbing moment; I had to read more to find out how Sir Saher and Rowena would axe down dividing walls.  

It is a novella with erotic material; one may even describe it an erotic novella. The cover page depicts one of the riveting sex scenes. One of the benefits of Claiming is its guide for first time or inexperience lovers. If you do not want to ask anyone about lovemaking, well Sir Saher will tell you exactly what to expect. [Points for sex education]. *winks*

I am not an expert on all things medieval but I thought that the sex talk however did not sound like medieval dialogue. Maybe I am wrong but based on other readings, at times the novella reads like a post-modern one.
