In an Oyster Shell – This was a really well-done romance that I would read again and again.
The Pearls – Though this concept has been done over and over again I feel like this author gave this premise a refreshing perspective. The two characters make the most unlikely couple and it really does seem to be a relationship of convenience.
The characters were well developed. There was a lot of characters and the author handled all of them masterfully.
The setting was fun being in Chicago. I haven’t read a lot of books based in Chicago.
The ending was really pleasant and unexpected.
The Sand – Though there was not a lot of them, the sex scenes were more descriptive then I like them to be.
