    "Finally! A delightful departure from the recent onslaught of vampire-firemen-CIA agent-werewolf-billionaire non-sense, this romance is sweet, fun, sexy, and definitely a page turner for romance fans. I haven't read a romance this good since Karen Marie Moning was flying off the shelves! Thank you, Jennifer Crusie, for not buying into the modern pseudo-romance scribble available in most book stores."

    "I'm a sucker for Chick Lit, so when I came across this book I decided to give it a try. Sometimes the characters in Chick Lit can be a bit too much, the plot a bit too contrived. I can happily say I quite enjoyed this book :-). There were times when I thought, "Okay, I get it - she thinks he's hot!" and just teensy moments here and there where you pretty much knew what was going to happen, but overall I was quite pleased. I enjoyed the characters and definitely had times when I was just going to read a couple of chapters, but found myself making up excuses as to why those other things on my To Do list could wait! I was so pleased when I got to the end and learned from the Author's Note that there were and would be other books involving characters from this book. How nice to know I can go and see more of a character's story but still have it be a stand alone experience. After I finish this review I plan to go order more Kindle books by Camilla Isley because I now know I like her style."

    ""Against the Wall" is fairly representative of the modern romance novel; the audience will find it to be an enjoyable read, but it doesn't stand out terribly. As is somewhat typical in these kinds of books, the plot left something to be desired, especially in its resolution, but the romantic elements were titillating. The book is not really for people like me, but I think others will enjoy giving it a read, though perhaps not a ton of multiple re-reads."

    "This romance novel is a nice light read, though it will probably not change your life. The male lead is a bit unconventional and has some nuances that make him more fleshed out than the average protagonist typically found in these stories, though the inherent conflict in the book, a sort of love triangle kind of situation, is pretty played out. The female lead is also not as well written, I have to say. If all this sounds appealing to you, you'll probably like this book, but I can't see it topping any lists or anything."

I feel as if it is sort of distinctly modern in that way though, which seems to work well for it. It's definitely an unconventional take on a romance novel, which I suppose I liked."

    "It was outrageous. He couldn't be serious! One day Amanda was happily engaged to Nigel, a flamboyant British car rally driver, the next she was the reluctant fiancé of his stern, laconic older brother, Malory Templeton. As if she hadn't been through enough. Hadn't finding Nigel in the arms of another woman been more than she deserved? The hard glitter in Malory's eyes told her otherwise. Malory was a virtual stranger to her, but Amanda had no choice. Her own foolish pride had caused the crazy switch in fiancés, and Malory, it seemed was going to hold her to it. I liked this book, but I didn't love it. It has good dialogue and pretty good chemistry, but I just couldn't get connected to the story.
