Snaps to the authors for including a 48-year-old heroine! The voices blended remarkably well, all things considered. There were some pretty clever cliches, humorous language and definitely some very sexy, ahem, parts. And someone is trying to kill her. Realizes she still loves her ex and breaks off her engagement with her current beau. Dogs and Goddesses is an enjoyable humor-filled romp. I can't say that I'd recommend it unless bizarre, supernatural romance is your thing. This book is a departure from her usual story's.
Out of the three, I enjoyed Abby's storyline and dog the most. North manages to convince Andie to help him out with two young orphans that have been left in his care. What on earth is going on in this unearthly little town? Magic is awesome but as a reader I felt woefully uneducated and left out. Gals that want to read about how gorgeous guys are or how to orgasm from color overload might get a kick out of it. Any one of the couples would have been plenty, with additional backstory and emotional development of the hero and heroine, for a stand-alone romance. If it had not had Crusie's name on the cover I wouldn't have bothered to finish it.
They are just there to be cute or to be very obvious matchmakers, telling our heroines that the men they have no reason to trust are the ones they should get naked and offer themselves to. To be fair, she was an actual goddess. Well, hot on the heels of the last Little Black Dress book review, heres another. I loved every second of it. Which is so much like Shamu. It didn't take too much time for the women to figure out what was happening.
This book had a few truly wonderful points I had to give this book 5 stars. Make sure to check out the , too. His name is Shane - no last name, just Shane - and he has his own problems. These characters aren't cardboard; they're paper. Her tightly-wound world spins out of control when she discovers the chaos within and meets a mysterious dog trainer whose teaching style is definitely hands-on. These three ladies are dog lovers, and, as it turns out, they are priestesses of some ancient goddess who has been called out of her many thousand-year-sleep by the power of Google and the cumulative lack of My review in one word: Bizarre. The story of three modern day women who find out quite suddenly that they are demi-goddesses and servents of the Goddess Kammani - and the men that they fall in love with along the way.
For example, Drool like giant tubes of droodle from their soft mouths. I looked at it as part of the Fantasy of a Romance Novel. Add another dozen or so characters and dogs and there is really quite the crew involved. This is the story about a young woman who is ten years divorced. We have Kammani-Gula and Sammu-la-el, both by accounts dating back to the Mesopotamian civilization. Funny enough - he says the same thing about me. Tell me that's not ridiculous.
I am not that excited about goddesses nor dogs but I love Jenny Crusie and Lani Diane Rich. I hear voices; you hear dogs. Finally as heroes we have Christopher, Noah, and Sam respectively. But the humans gave me pause a few times. I'm not sure they fit well.
Though I did like Agnes and the Hitman with Bob Mayer. Sad, because the cover art is kind of awesome and so is the basic concept… sigh. That, I'm looking forward to. I'm sure the book is humorous in print, but as an audiobook it was a hoot. Got the job done though. See, the key if you're going to collaborate and each write a storyline is balance. At least, Shar wasn't a divorcee with kids, small blessings.
It may not have been the story I was looking for, but I was certainly never bored. To be fair, she was an actual goddess. The book was sooo much tell and hardly any show… just… boring. I don't know any of the co-authors well enough to know when one stopped and another began, and it wasn't obvious that there were three authors. I pre-ordered it for title and cruise alone and thought it was going to be 3 novellas. Also, the villain is sympathetic.
