About me

Hi I'm Janna and I am a book whore! I started this blog after being a part of another for years. While being a big blog may be nice I like to stay true to me having a love for books, that's why I blog. I love books and I want to share that love with my readers of this blog. I love to read, books are my escape and a huge part of my life besides my husband and two children. I am honest and sometimes sassy in my reviews but never mean. Some of my favorite authors include Kristen Ashley, Penelope Douglas, T.M. Frazier, M.N. Forgy, Rachel Van Dyken, Meghan March and Vi Keeland to only name a few!

ARC Review! Seducing the Boss by Mari Carr

Kellan James is unwinding at Score when he spots the last person he’d ever expect to find in his favorite bar. Sara Connelly—ER nurse, do-gooder, charitable crusader, and frequent pain in his ass. Both grew up privileged in swanky Southampton, but that’s where the similarities end. Kellan’s made it his mission to seek out life’s pleasures; Sara gains pleasure from lecturing him on his lifestyle. Kellan would never date someone like her. Ever.

But when Kellan discovers Sara’s been stood-up by an online date, something fierce and protective awakens inside of him. Typically, Kellan would enjoy teasing the jilted Sara, but something in her face sends him over to her table with a plan. He encourages her to take a walk on the wild side, one weekend of sin, no holds barred.

She accepts, but it quickly becomes apparent that one night isn’t enough. As the pull between them grows stronger, Kellan discovers it’s a very dangerous thing to say never.
Kellan and Sara had a story that was appealing, but at the same time never felt fully realized for me. I think they had the foundation for an excellent relationship, but I never really felt fully engaged with their story.

i thought the conflict of his position as her boss was never really the conflict that it could have been, that this was solved too easily. I never was able to fully believe in his change of heart, even though the author did present a reason for it that was plausible, so there is that...it just didn't convince me.

The writing, the pacing and the dialog were strong. I just never engaged with the characters or fully with the story. I didn't believe that he would have a change of heart and I never really believed that Sara and his relationship with her was enough to cause him to rethink the way he was living his life up to that point.

I liked the potential of this one, and it was worth reading, but I think it could have been more.
