If you want some fun, well written romance novels, try Penny Reid (new adult, has a great rugby series) or JR Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood (not usually into vampires, but an awesome series).
Penny Reid seems to have a lot of great reviews. Will check out her Knitting in the city series soon. Thanks :D

I already have no use for romance novels and by the sounds of it, this one does not bode well for the genre.

I hate plot holes. Cliches and plot holes? No thank you. Thank you for your great review.

The storyline is intriguing. And it is such queer act of Fate, something like fact-stranger-than-fiction thing that Adam, of all people, be the one to answer to Kelsey's advertisement. And maybe, there is such connective line between the two that Chinese Astrology calls "life threads" that no matter how entangled never breaks. Thanks for your review, I like it.

Interesting review. The story does sound a bit too predictable for the book to jump to the top of my bookshelves.

Wow! I was hooked by the first paragraph of your review, but disappointed to hear that it has cliche parts and poor editing. Sounds like this is a case where they should have spent the money on an editor rather than a review. Thank you for the well written and honest review. I'm going to pass on this one for now.

When I first started reading your review I thought the book would be something I'd enjoy reading. I'm disappointed in the plot holes, cliches, and errors. Your review is very thorough and gives a good insight into the book. Thank you for sharing!

It sounded, almost like a spy novel with some romance thrown in. But with the ending being predictable and similar to others of the genre I don't know . . . I love romance novels and it sounds exciting. I might read it. Thank you for the honest review.

The plot holes are a big turn off for me but it sounds like a nice steamy read.

The story seems to be like another romance novel "Heartaches." You have very critically analysed the whole story. Thanks for this well rounded review.

I like romance and the plot seems interesting. Even if there are some editing issues I think I will give it a try. I want to meet these strangers.

Plotholes can ruin a book most effectively. It is hard to really enjoy a story when you are often left wondering how on earth did we get here? Did I miss something or what?
