This is not going to be a review so much as a discussion/thoughts on these books. I actually started reading KMM last month (I think it was) when I read the first two books in her Fever series. I wasn't a huge fan of the first one, but was intrigued enough to read book 2. Book 3 (Faefever) is one of the biggest trips I've ever read.
I was on Twitter one night and asked about the Highlander series. Back in the day I was a BIG Highland romance fan and have always had a thing for a guy in a kilt. But, I wasn't sure if I wanted to read this series. One of my buddies convinced me and when I was down at the coast, I picked up a couple. Unfortunately, I didn't have the first one and my OCD tendencies wouldn't let me start until I got the first.
Here are my thoughts on the series so far...
KMM has a thing for the Fae. Obviously. I've always been fascinated by them too, but she's got an obsession going on here. Not that I'm complaining. :)
The Men: She likes to write about hard-core Alpha males. These are men who are big, brutal, deadly men. Until the heroine comes along. And then they are mush. Only with the heroine, of course.
The Women: Oy, virgins all. I could understand it if one...maybe even two were virgins. But I kid you not. EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. All. *shakes head* Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against virginity (obviously *snort*), but I do have issues with it when these are all supposed to be modern women who've dated and all that other good stuff. It's just...weird.
The basic overall storyline: I admit, I didn't care for the first two books all that much. I thought the heroine from book 1 was an idiot and that the hero from book 2 was a moron. However, the writing was tight and the books were decent. It wasn't until book 3 that things started to really kick in. I haven't read Kiss of the Highlander yet, but I've read Books 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, & 7. Adam's is my favorite, which shocks me to pieces. I so wasn't expecting that, esp. after what he did in book 1, but...he redeemed himself. :)
And that's about it. I'm sure I'll think of more, but I've been battling a sinus migraine since Friday and my brain isn't functioning like it should. Have any of you read this series? What are your thoughts?
