TGIF! I'm ready for the weekend :) Although my work laptop still isn't reinstalled proparly after the virus hit it, I'm beginning to feel less stressed! I don't care anymore that the network guys are messing up with getting it operating again (okay, still a little bit), because I've rediscovered my home computer which is a desktop but runs way faster than my laptop did. It also is in the bedroom, so no more late nights surfing the internet and shopping for ebooks after hubby went to bed, which in a weird manner gives me more time to blog and hop and read. Limiting the time frame somehow helps to become more efficient ;) And the going to bed by 1 am (instead of 3 am) makes that I read in bed more.
I've finished the first book, Fatal Shadows, and the second, A Dangerous Thing, almost. I hear everyone who has read all of the five books of this series say that they loved the first book, the second one not so much, but the third, fourth and last book were really, really great. So far I enjoyed the first book pretty much (4 stars), although I missed the romance in that one. But I must say that it didn't bother me at all while I was reading it because it's so freakin' well written. You just want to keep going and before you know it, you've come to the last page. This has a lot to do with Adrien's voice, his dry tone that's full of humor and self-mockery is very appealing and prompted quite a few laughs.
That hasn't changed in the second book and finally we get some bed room action and a hint of romance as well. I was starting to freak out a little after reading more than half of the book and Adrien and Jake still hadn't so much as kissed! But now they have kissed and even had their first rather awkward but great love scene. I'm prepared for the worst though, because I know some girlzz *cough*Kris*cough* call Jake the-asshole-that-shall-not-be-named because of the things he's going to do... I can imagine what those things are, him being the gay cop that's so deep in the closet he can't even find himself (quoted freely from Adrien).
Well, I'll see were this thing with Adrien and Jake is going and why some of you don't like book 2 so much... only another 30 pages to go...
