ARC Review: The Rule Maker by Jennifer Blackwood


I really enjoyed the first book in the Rule Breakers series by Jennifer Blackwood and I was looking forward to reading the next in the series, The Rule Maker. Each book is a standalone story that is easily read on its own. While I did enjoy this one at times, I liked The Rule Book better than The Rule Maker. This story was a light and easy read, if a bit predictable. 

Zoey is thrilled to get another project doing work for Jason Covington. But when she finds out that instead of working with Jason directly she will be working with his brother Ryder, she is anything but thrilled. Zoey and Ryder had a one night stand, with him leaving the next day without so much as a backwards glance. But after a horrible snowboarding accident, he has agreed to help his brother out. While things don't start of the best, Zoey and Ryder quickly find themselves drawn to each other once again. 

I have to say that part of what kept me from really loving this book was Zoey and Ryder. Both had moments of immaturity that had me questioning their ages. They would do, say or think childish things and that had me struggling here. Maybe this is an age thing myself, but the older I get the less tolerance I have for it. These characters are out of college and should be acting as adults, and yet at times they didn't appear that way at all. I felt like Zoey was too hung up on her rules at times, and having read the first book she seemed a bit too like Lainey. I also wish things had been different in regard to their one night stand. That kind of soured me on the relationship from the start, especially since some is left unclear and Ryder's intentions make it hard to get behind him as a hero. These two had obvious chemistry and a growing connection, but I just found it hard to relate to them or feel fully invested with everything we were given.

I think that this one was a good read, but it wasn't one that I would remember long term. Zoey and Ryder had chemistry, but I felt like their relationship took quite a bit of time to happen and started on a sour note with the way Ryder never intended to see her again. He knew her and the type of girl she was, and he had never planned on pursuing her at all. By the time he came around I wasn't fully able to believe it and then things were wrapped up a bit to easy and cheesy for me. While I appreciate a sweet ending, this one was a bit too much for me. I think that a lot of readers will really enjoy this one, but for me it was just okay and wasn't my favorite of what I have read from Jennifer Blackwood.

ARC Review: Dirty Money by Jessica Clare


I like Jessica Clare. She is good at giving us non-traditional characters who are the sort of underdogs that you root for. So, I'm used to seeing offbeat characters from her and I was expecting it. Boone is that character in this book but Boone is also what goes really wrong for me in this one.

Boone is a billionaire oil guy in the tradition of the Beverly Hillbillies. He basically unexpectedly hit oil on his land and became richer than rich overnight. The problem is that Boone has not adopted any of the ways of wealth so despite the fact that he has access to all the rich people stuff, the rich people still treat him like something they stepped in. Boone comes up with a "solution" to his problem being accepted by "classy" people. All Boone needs is a classy woman by his side and he'll be totally in with the rich people. To that end, Boone chooses a woman who looks real upscale from her photo in a real estate advertisement, that woman is Ivy. What Boone does not know is that Ivy grew up in and still lives in a trailer park just like him (because despite being a billionaire, Boone still lives in a friggin trailer).

And things keep going downhill. When Boone meets Ivy, he approaches her about being his real estate agent because he wants to purchase a house that will make him look rich and classy. He's ready to get out of the trailer, apparently. Ivy is a great agent but she works for these jerks who steal any good listings from her so she basically can't make a living at all. Enter my problem with Ivy. Ivy is working her butt off but accepting living in poverty because she doesn't either stand up for herself or just find another flipping job. Ivy is a good person, I liked her but her being a doormat just worked on my nerves.

When Boone meets Ivy, yeah, it takes instalove to a whole new level. I think he asked her to marry him the first time he met her. He also tells her that he wants to be classy and that's why he wants a real big expensive house (although he doesn't shave or like wash the dirt off his hands before going in public). He also tells Ivy that he wants her because he needs a classy lady. Of course Ivy likes Boone and doesn't want to tell him that she's from the trailer park like he is trying to get away from. She means to tell him but keeps putting it off and blah blah until he finds out and blah blah blah, drama followed by HEA.

Boone's quest to be classy in the stupidest possible imaginable ways was a total turn off. I absolutely hated the way he wanted to be accepted and then did dumb stuff to get that acceptance. To make matters worse, when Boone wasn't accepted, he did even dumber stuff. Hint, he buys a golf course to get back at the people from the country club who treat him bad.  And what happens next is even worse. But wait, here is the absolute stupidest part, he doesn't buy the golf course from IVY who desperately needs the commission. Like WTF just happened? I was so fixated on these issues that I honestly couldn't enjoy the book. I read the whole thing but both Ivy and Boone stand out in my mind as being sort of immature. This is not my favorite Jessica Clare book but I know I will read more by her and maybe even more in this series.
