Actions Speak Louder

Kindle Romance book review

Author - Rosemarie Naramore
Title     - Actions Speak Louder
Stars   - 4

Actions Speak Louder:
When Marcia married, she thought it was for life. Regrettably, her husband had other ideas. At the age of thirty-two, Marcia divorces. Her interest in DIY encourages her to purchase a hardware store.

Ethan moves next door and begins to refurbish it, but she’s not interested. He is charming, considerate, and easy on the eyes, but Marcia isn’t looking for a relationship. She’s nervous of men, thanks to her ex, who crushed her self-confidence.

Can Ethan persuade Marcia he’s nothing like her ex? Can he prove to her that she can trust him? And most important, can he win her love?

Actions Speak Louder contains all the essentials of a good romance. There is realistic action, good dialogue and effective characterization. Actions Speak Louder is a book that makes you understand why you read in the first place. I recommend picking this one up for a captivating, pleasurable, and thought provoking read.

Maid for the Billionaire

Kindle Romance book review

Author - Ruth Cardello
Title     - Maid for the Billionaire
Stars   - 5

Maid for the Billionaire:
Dominic knew right away that Abigail was the diversion he was searching for, particularly since having her, took more convincing than he was used to. When business compels him to fly to China, he resolves to take her with him, but on his terms. No promises. No complications. Just sex.

Abby doesn’t believe in taking chances when it comes to men, until, that is, she encounters Dominic. He’s annoying and exciting, which makes a potent mixture. Their trip to China reawakens an overlooked side of Abby, and discloses a danger that could bring down Dominic’s company. Abby must either manipulate his project and save his company or accede to her role as concubine and leave his fate to chance. Does she love him enough to risk losing him for good?

The characters are well developed, and convincing, and the plot plausible. Even though the ending is perhaps a tad hurried, Maid for the Billionaire is very readable

The story puts a distinctive spin on the rich guy, poor woman slant. The plot is interesting with a thoughtful sub plot involving China. Maid for the Billionaire perhaps includes unnecessary information, but overall it is an entertaining, relaxed read.
