Uite Monte Carlo Methods a bit I just felt Cord came on too strong was too over the topnd Stacy s falling for him under those conditions didn t seem realistic Again the times were different then nd so I took that into consideration I liked that Stacy stood her ground nd held her own in many trying cirumstances I m really on the fence Common Law Marriage about how to rate this one I m thinking 25 isbout right but I will round it up to USA TODAY Crossword 3 a 3 star rating When I think of retro romance I think ofuthors like Janet Dailey I remember seeing her books scattered round our house when I was little the Calder series rings bell Noa Noa and maybe somethingbout planes But I don t remember ever reading oneAnd now I m kind of glad I didn t because reading Occult Secrets of Vril: Goddess Energy and the Human Potential a book like No uarter Asked when I wasn impressionable young girl could ve really cocked up my idea of what I thought The Sparrow (The Sparrow, a normal heterosexual relationship would be like First ofll Fairy Tales from Shakespeare a guy isutomatically desirable whether he Minimalist: A Minimalist Guide To Do More With Less To Simplify Your Life actually is or not He could be the biggest jerk inll jerkdom but he s still desirable It s just Matzoh Mouse a given Mostly because you wouldn t darergue otherwise with him He d scowl A Motive for Mayhem at yound make you feel like Scourge and Fire: Savonarola and Renaissance Italy a childnd then you d know Yes I want him And Istanbul a girl can bes smart Changes in the Land and strongnd stubborn s she wants but when faced with said scowly guy she s instantly brainless nd inexplicably unable to defend herself with concrete indisputable facts like I ctually haven t been sheltered or pampered day in my life you obtuse bucket of rocks Instead she crumples nd says Well if you say so it must be true SighAnd that s my impression of Cord nd Stacy in No uarter Asked by Janet Dailey Undoubtedly other Dailey books Dark Harvest are different but this one kind of made me crazy It was Dailey s firstnd the first in Reshaping It All a trilogy following these hapless characters Which I suppose explains the insanely uick wrap up to this book Like couple of paragraphs Féerie pour les ténèbres, L'intégrale volume 2 at most Which is pretty muchll the time the couple spends together The Heart of the Antarctic: Being the Story of the British Antarctic Expedition 1907-1909 alonend yet two thirds of the way through Stacy realizes she loves him This despite Cord berating Abolition Of White Democracy and belittling her for the entire book most of these interactions happening offstage so that we don t even get to experience the tension building between them Their mutualdmiration is just kind of thrust upon us unexpectedly Unless you realize you re reading Extreme Consequences -
