Top Ten Tuesday – Ten Books I Loved Less Than I Thought I Would

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is Ten Books I Loved Less/More Than I Thought I Would (recently or all time) .  I chose Ten Books I Loved Less, I had a few disappointments lately and thought it would be interesting to go over them one more time.

So here we go: Ten Books I Loved Less Than I Thought I Would

My latest disappointment – that I’m still working on has been…

Mack Daddy by Penelope Ward

All I can say I lost interest in this book pretty quickly. I didn’t connect with either characters, and the retelling of events and history had me rolling my eyes and my brain shutting off – it died a quick death and got booted off my kindle.






First Star I See Tonight (Chicago Stars #8)
by Susan Elizabeth Phillips

I once a LOOOOOONG time ago loved all SEP books. I still reread some of her old books now and then, but her latest book had me struggling. Unfortunately her heroine got on my nerves pretty quickly and her continuously pulling back and whining drove me nuts.

Review here




Out of Bounds by Lauren Blakely

All I can say I really tried. I usually adore Lauren Blakely’s writing style but I just couldn’t make it work with Out of Bounds.






Dirty (Dive Bar #1) by Kylie Scott

OMG this was so hard for me to admit but DIRTY didn’t do anything for me. After (Stage Dive #1) and my love of all things Mal – DIRTY was a huge disappointment. I don’t really think I could put my finger on what exactly bothered me – a combination of things I imagine. Anyway, I CAN’T wait to read TWIST coming out in April 11.




A Veil of Vines by Tillie Cole

I had such HUGE hopes for this book. I loved her Sweet Home (Sweet Home, #1series – absolutely adored it. I knew that A VEIL OF VINES would be different from her other books, but I still hoped I would at least enjoy it. Unfortunately I lost interest pretty early on and couldn’t make myself pick it up again – what a bummer!!!





Guardian’s Mate (Shifters Unbound #9) by Jennifer Ashley

I love this series. What’s not to love about shifters, alpha, and feisty heroines. But this book just didn’t do it for me. I told myself I’m done with this series but guess what – I’m looking forward to Red Wolf (Shifters Unbound #10) coming out in May.





The Promise (The ‘Burg #5) by Kristen Ashley 

I’ve had this book on my #currentlyreading shelf for a year now. I’ve started it twice and I do NOT think that ‘third time’s the charm’ will work for this book. It will be forever a DNF.





 The Player by Claire Contreras 

Ok, where should I start. Maybe that the soccer player I hoped for was more businessman than player. I must have had a different vision for it. I love a great soccer player theme, but The Player was everything else than a sports romance. And on top of that I couldn’t really connect to either main characters.





Anything You Can Do by R.S. Grey

This was another hard hit for me. I  LOVE  R.S. Grey writing style. All of her books have been entertaining and utterly charming, with SCORING WILDER my all time favorite, but ANYTHING YOU CAN DO drove me nuts. I loved the premise but the childish behavior from both main characters, but especially the females, just rubbed me the wrong way. Nevertheless I’m looking forward to her next book.




Road to Nowhere (Road to Nowhere #1) by M. Robinson

I don’t even know what to say about this book. It was all over the place. I think the title already said it Road to NOWHERE – that’s how I felt. The story didn’t make much sense to me and I lost faith in the MC early on, it’s hard to come back from that. So, I didn’t even try.




What about you? Any books I might have forgotten?

    1. exactly – I had a really hard time connecting with the characters 🙁 It was so very surprising because I usually adore her books/writing. Oh well, hopefully her next book will be a hit for me again.
