The Bride of Blackfriars Lane by Michelle Griep

Four stars

The Continuing Adventure of Jackson and Kit!
Detective Jackson Forge can hardly wait to marry the street-sly swindler who’s turned his life upside down. Kit Turner is equally excited to wed the handsome detective, and what better way to show her love than providing him with a gift any man of the law would love? She determines to bring to justice the men who years ago maimed his brother—despite Jackson’s warning to leave the past in the past. As she digs into the mystery of what happened, she unwittingly tumbles into her own history and endangers her future happiness with Jackson.

When I read the first book, I loved it. I couldn’t read it fast enough. I was laughing all throughout it and loved every minute of it. This one… meh.

The story was okay but I was mainly disappointed in the romance. I know they were getting married but, still, I felt like a lot of the romance could have either been cut or kept behind close doors. Maybe that’s just me? I enjoy romance, but this kind of grossed me out. Nothing inappropriate though.

Still, the characters were great and loveable. That’s a main thing to me for whether or not I’m going to like the book. Jackson and Kit were still the same characters I fell in love with in the first book but they did frustrate me on several occasions. Overall, I enjoyed it but couldn’t see myself rereading.

*I received a complimentary copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Jackson gaped. There were times he loved this woman so much, it ached to the marrow. Other times—like this—he’d like nothing better than to grab her shoulders and shake some sense into her. What was she about?

  1. I still haven’t read this one – read the first and really enjoyed it – so I’ll have to see how I feel about it. Sometimes sequels just don’t live up to the hype, sadly.
    But that quote. Wow, I wish I could write like Michelle Griep. 🙂

    1. I’m curious to hear your thoughts! Maybe it was just me. XD Yeah, that is sad when they don’t though. Because I really did enjoy the first book!
      I know, right?? I’ve thought the same. XD
