    Author blurb for Jill Myles from the author profile for Jessica Clare After devouring hundreds of paperback romances mythology books and archaeological tomes she decided to write a few books of her own stories with a wild adventure sharp banter and lots of super sexy situations She prefers her heroes alpha and half dressed her heroines witty and she loves nothing than watching them overcome adversity to fall into bed togetherIf you are wondering why I'm uoting Myles' author blurb and why it exists on Jessica Clare's author profile and why it's applicable to a Jessica Sims' book then congratulations it worked It worked because for some reason I purchased this book and you might have too I read the author bio for Jessica Sims which says some shit about owning cats and playing games What it doesn't say is that Jessica Sims in a nom de plume for Jill Myles and so is Jessica Clare I feel absolutely cheated I'd already read Gentlemen Prefer Succubi and disliked this author's writing intensely I never would have bought this book if I'd known that she wrote it I don't know why three pen names are necessary in the same genre and why two of those pen names are even in the same subgenre It's enough to say that nothing about the writing has improved At all If anything the characterization has degraded The blurb might lead you to believe that the writing is full of intelligence and research It might make you think that the dialogue is smart witty and sharp You might think that the romance heroes are sexy and the heroines are strong but funny It's all a lie One big fucking lieOnce again the plot was pathetically simple and juvenile I honestly feel that the writing is cheap and sloppy as hell And the charactersFuck my lifeThere is nothing witty about them Nothing Bathsheba is a capitulating moron who has no sense common or otherwise Beau is an obsessive controlling psychopath From the moment he meets her he controls everything about her Their first date is nothing but creepy gross sexual innuendo Just a few hours after meeting her he has drugged her and kidnapped her to his hotel for her own safety of course Within days he's kidnapped her again and dragged her to a remote location where he puts her completely within his control This doesn't stop The entire book continues like this I'm sure some will dismiss this as a caring man concerned about his woman and taking care of her My response would be to tell them to go volunteer at a woman's shelter at some point because that's exactly where Bathsheba would wind up one dayWhen is the picture of what's sexy and appropriate going to change? This is not sexy Abusive isn't sexy and Beau shows ALL the signs of an abuser Spend three months helping a woman escape her abusive controlling husband and come back and tell me this shit is still okay Hear her cry on the phone night after night while he's in the shower because she's terrified for her life but physically can't leave She can't leave because he controls her money so she has to secretly work over time and suirrel the money away She can't just take her passport and banking stuff No She has to pretend to be clearing out the study and she has to secret her documents away Spend THREE MONTHS storing things for a terrified woman who is agonizingly working inch by inch for moving day I can not express the amount of thought and planning that goes into those moving days Some of them will haunt me foreverWhen we all have to show up but can't park in front of the house in case he drives by so we end up carrying boxes two blocks away to where our cars are Where we have to board her cat and secretly arrange a garage for her car to stay in and keep plane tickets hidden in her name Live those three months with the knowledge that ONE WRONG SLIP and he'll track her down and beat the shit out of her kill her or worse force her back to him Something forgotten at home meaning an early return a call to work where a careless coworker reveals she didn't come in him accidentally stumbling on a clue to her plans beforehand Do all this and then come back to me and tell me it's alright to write this kind of relationship I don't think there's anything that's going to convince me that Beau's characterization was harmless and just a sexy break from reality It's a fucking tragic reality for far too many women And it isn't romantic This review can also be found on my blog

    Allow me to start out by saying that I was prepared to like this book I was looking forward to a fun supernatural romance with a spunky heroine and a sexy hero I was even prepared to overlook the fact that the heroine is named Bathsheba although admittedly I cringed with increasing intensity every time he calls her “Sweet Bathsheba” – actually I might have thrown up in my mouth a little just thenBut I might have managed to enjoy the book if the heroine was not so excruciatingly idiotic Allow me to paraphrase for you some spoilers ahead“Hi I’m BathshebaI have committed myself to protecting and looking after my dear little sister Sara She’s a werewolf you see Trouble with a nasty ex boyfriend But I have sworn to protect and look after her always despite the fact that she can turn into a wolf with claws and teeth and my biggest talents include falling down a lot and gigglingI promised myself I would always look after her but a girl’s gotta eat you know? So I’ve found us both jobs And since Walmart wasn’t hiring I decided to go with the next best thing We’re working at the only supernatural dating agency in town I’ve sworn to protect her and hide her secret so that the other evil and abusive werewolves don’t get to her so of course working at a dating agency where all sorts of supernaturals and were creatures are constantly passing through is a totally brilliant idea I’m not worried that they’ll smell her out – I’ll just make sure she covers herself in perfume every day That won’t seem suspicious at all And as for the fact that she freuently loses control when shapeshifters swing by the office and turns into a wolf unexpectedly Well I’ll just make her hide in the back room No one will even noticeOh hey There’s a really hot were cougar who is completely into me – and by into me I mean he wants to have lots and lots of sex with me Have I mentioned that I’m a virgin? You know because throughout all of my sister protecting duties I haven’t had time to have sex with anybodySo we’ve gone out on a date and he’s totally hot Oh – the were cougar just saved my life from Something Not sure what it was Oh well Have I mentioned how hot he is? And here comes his friend you know the huge intimidating beefy guy who won’t say two words to me? Anyway his friend is offering me some little pills He said that the were cougar told me to take them I guess they look harmless enoughOk so it turns out that the were cougar has drugged me and kidnapped me But it’s all for my own good He’s kidnapping me for my own protection And so he can have lots and lots of hot sex with me Oh and he’s had his big beefy friend kidnap my sister And he won’t tell me where she is Or where I am But it’s ok Because he told me she’s completely safe And even though I’ve known this man less than a week I think I’m just going to relax and stop worrying about my sister so that I can have lots of crazy hot sex with himAfter all she’s got that big beefy friend of his looking after her And I would totally trust the guy who drugged me with my sister’s safety so we’re all good Have I mentioned how hot my were cougar is?”Ok so that’s about all I’ve got but suffice it to say that Bathsheba continues on in this vein falling into icy rivers to retrieve blankets and rushing idiotically into danger without letting anyone know where she’s gone or even confirming that the person she’s gone to save is in fact in danger And because I find her level of stupidity hard to swallow I find the were cougar’s interest in her eually unfathomable What is so attractive about this woman? I find it difficult to believe that any intelligent self made businessman as he is portrayed would find any interest at all in such a twit I also find it difficult to believe that all of a sudden in under a week these two have fallen madly inseparably in love Maybe I’m just being bratty – tons of other people seem to like this book Maybe you should go ask one of them But in the meantime thanks for taking the time to read my long winded rant of a review

    Okay story but the heroine did some dumb stuff like running straight into danger and not trusting the hero at all She was frustrating I wish we would have had the hero's point of view I didn't get a good read of his feelings for her

    Beauty Dates The Beast was cute fun and sexy with some action an mystery laced in I really enjoyed it because I assumed it was going to be another basic retelling of Beauty and The Beast but it wasn't The Beauty in the story happens to be Bathsheba and the Beast is Beau Now Bathsheba is a regular ol' human woman in her mid twenties just trying to keep herself and her little sister safe Bathsheba and her sister work at the Midnight Liaisons Agency which is a dating service for the paranormal Beau is a sexy cougar on the prowl for a date after being stood up by another little does he realize he's about to get far better than what he lost There's a lot of fun dialogue and teasing that goes on between Bath and Beau because they're both good natured people with a sense of humor Bath even uses my favorite phrase balls to the wall which earned her major brownie points The romance is definitely a slow building one with a lot of sparks and sassiness What I really liked was that Bath kinda took the lead and decided when she was ready to move forward because Beau was trying to be respectful and understanding The villains in this story were horrible and totally deserved their fate in the end I totally cringed when they were introduced or had any dialogue because they were just so sick and twisted One of the villains doesn't really appear or act villainous so when it comes out their nuts it's a bit surprising Bathsheba and Beau have different ways of handling these evil folks and that's what keeps the story moving Bash wants to handle everything on her own because she's use to being the protector so Beau trying to help her elicits funny reactions Overall I enjoyed the story because the romance was the focus but there were other things going on that helped bring these two together I felt like the story was very cohesive and the plot was strong specially when it came to describing the monster lurking around looking for Bath Thanks to Miss Angela for suggesting this one and the rest of the seriesD

    Bathsheba and her sister Sara both work at a dating service for supernatural beings called Midnight Liaisons Beau calls looking for another date since his canceled and decides he wants Bathsheba Only problem is that humans can't date supesor can they? Being a fan of Jill Myles and her Succubus Diaries series along with having already read the first chapter or so I had a pretty good feeling that I would like this book and I did I loved Bathshebashe was just sooo funny I loved how she took care of her sister although I think she maybe took it to an extreme Beau was exceptional I think the whole being in heat thing was funny and reminded me of the guys in Black Dagger Brotherhood and Bella I thought it was really sweet when Beau was trying to be romantic with the picnic date view spoiler cutting up the blanket into a heart? adorable hide spoiler

    Bathesheba and her sister Sarah work at Midnight Liaisons dating service which services the Supernaturals dating needs When a client is stood up Bathesheba has to fill in or risk the wrath of a very important client In addition Bathesheba couldn't anger her boss Giselle who was blackmailing her with information pertaining to Sarah which would compromise Sarah's safety What's Bathesheba to do when she's being pulled in so many directions?I enjoyed this story It wasn't too heavy and it wasn't overloaded with sex Sheba and Beau were cute Beau was consistent loyal and sexy He was a good shifter leader and he added integrity to the clan I'm not sure why this is a retelling because Beau was handsome rich and powerful But it's supposed to be a Beauty and the Beast retelling

    For some reason the concept of this story reminded me of Gena Showalter's work especially her earlier stuff It was definitely lighthearted and meant to be fun with a curvy virginal and supposedly uick witted heroine but the whole thing really came across as just plain cheesy IMO I'm sorry to say it Jessica Sims aka Jill Myles but Showalter could have done this a whole lot better and by that I mean in a way that at least made sensePretty much right from the get go this book had me going huh? So our heroine Bathsheba is a human working at a supernatural dating service by day and otherwise protecting her younger sister who was turned into a werewolf several years ago by night A hunky alpha were cougar Beau calls whose setup date has canceled on him and coerces her into going out with him Now Bath has already informed the readers that dating service does not eual escort service via dealing with a perverted caller early on BUT on her date we learn that Beau is looking for a service provider because apparently a she cougar is going into heat soon and it'll affect him So I guess dating service really does in fact mean escort service And a uestion I had to ask myself was if he's so hunk a licious why does he need to be set up???? For some reason this uestion is never really answered This was just one of the many plot devices used to drive the story forward that didn't make sense to me In the end I ended up pretty much skimming my way through the book looking for any redeeming juicy bits unfortunately there weren't many and sending up a hallelujah when I finished It occurs to me I should really start a DNF shelf
