come true Joy is the of Frankie the main character of the first BOOK IN THIS SERIES WHILE FRANKIE S RESPONSIBILITIES INCLUDE in this series While Frankie s responsibilities include owning and the day to day managing of the Bed and Breakfast Joy helps in anything Frankie needs and the much harder managing of Grand Em their dementia addled grandmother But Joy dreams of fashion design and when a possible big break looms accompanied by the handsome source of her nreuited love Joy has to make a choice It was a sweet book and Joy and Gray had so many moments between each other that were Can I Tell You about Nystagmus? utterly swoon worthy Joy is an innocent woman blushing but knowing what she wants while Gray finds himself too corrupted to be with a woman like Joy It was a fun read full of angsty and dramatic back and forth s that had me anxiously flipping through every page waiting for theltimate conclusion The only disappointments I had with this book was the credibility from book 1 to book 2 Joy was portrayed as a spineless meek simpleton of a girl in the first book ready to do whomever s bidding someone asked of her She was lumped together with George who has mental problems leaving him a thought process that doesn t match his age and I honestly thought she might be on the same boat But here in book 2 she s a strong woman ready to call a Wall Street shark on his shit and dives right into New York s high society as a career Which of course I much prefer to the girl in book 2 But the two portrayals just don t jive in my mind And my second concern seems to be a thematic one with JR Ward contemporaries But we just didn t get enough time together with them as a couple As soon as they accept their feelings of each other the story ends and I m left wanting This one had a little sprinkled throughout than the first but still not enough in my opinion This one was much better than the first one The characters were interesting and fully developed Gray especially had a lot of bad stuff running around in his head that he had to overcome Also the premise was interesting Naive young woman and a jaded cynical man who thinks he s too old for her but just can t stay away The angst level was higher here and it looks like the next one is going to be even angsty Joy lives in her family s BB and looks after her demented grandmother She s been in love with the wealthy Gray for years but has never done anything about it When finally does notice her he refuses to act on his impulse because she seems to young and innocent Then he starts distrusting her They get to know one another better when she travels to New York after being commissioned to design an evening gown for one of his friends but there are a lot of misunderstandings along the way because Gray has so many issues with women and relationshipsI liked it better than the first Moorehouse book involving her older sister Gray was a pretty imposing alpha male but he was a bit special in that he really made himself vulnerable a few times I liked Joy and I enjoyed how while she was so innocently in love with Gray she was also willing to stand Last Whales up for herself and not tolerate his behavior Still it s very much an average read It didn t suck me in the way the really good romance novels do Opening line The boat s engine throbbed as Grayson Bennett kept the Hacker at a low speed and close to the lakeshoreHIS COMFORT AND JOY is book 2 in the Moorehouse legacy trilogy which I discovered through being a fan of JR Ward and her Black Dagger Brotherhood I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this roman. Ruthless might as well be Gray Bennett's middle name When the renowned Washington DC insider talks powerful people listen But Gray hasn't come home to Saranac Lake to play politics Or play at all A tragedy has shaken thenshak. ,
Oorehouse has loved Grayson Bennett from afar for years and while they have homes not far away from each other they live in totally different worlds Grayson s world is one of political maneuverings high class parties and one night stands than he can remember while Joy lives at the family s struggling BB helping out as she can and caring for her Grandmother who suffers from dementia To say they have little or nothing in common is an The Art of War understatement and if it weren t for the fact that he knew and called her by name she d have thought he didn t even know she existed but she would have been wrongGray has been fighting his desire for Joy for years having been drawn to her innocence her confidence and her beauty But as far as he is concerned she deserves a much better man than he could ever hope to be Embittered by his years of political consulting and rubbing shoulders with some of the country s most powerful and least honorable men he doesn t see himself as a man who could ever be worthy of someone like her And when it becomes clear that she s as attracted to him as he is to her he starts throwingp all kinds of obstacles to keep them apart and protect her from the man he is the man he will always beI m really enjoying this series While the books are light easy reads they are by no means brainless As she does with her Black Dagger Brotherhood series which she writes Introduction to Cinematography under the name JR Ward Jessica Bird has givens complex characters who are often times too noble and self sacrificing for their own good As is always the case with all of her stories it was a pleasure to watch the characters Joy and Grayson grow I loved seeing Joy with her inherent goodness reach out to and try to break through the cynicism that had embedded itself into Grayson s soul and embrace him loving the man for all he is all he is not and all that he might becomeAnd without giving too much away I have to say she really really REALLY had her work cut out for herNext Le seigneur des anneaux : La communaut de L'anneau, tome 1 / Les deux tours, tome 2 / Le Retour du Roi, tome 3 up From The First Alex Moorehouse s story I had planned to write a full review on this book but I m feeling lazy so I ll just post some of my random thoughts here Gray I fell in love with him in the 1st half of the story but when he started acting like a jerk throwing accusations at Joy without any basis to support his suspicions he lost some ground with me I didn t endp hating him because Ms Bird did a god job showing his insecurity and vulnerability when it came to Joy but he could have snapped out of it sooner than he did Joy
liked her even though she too good and sweet to be true and came close to being a pushover I was glad to see her becoming something other than her Grand Em caretaker because that was pretty much all she was when she was introduced in Beauty And The Black Sheep the 1st book in the series Plot Writing Gray s I want you but I m no good for you routine was interesting at the series Plot Writing Gray s I want you but I m no good for you routine was interesting at as I was curious to know what made him such a hard hearted man but it was dragged a bit too long and I got tired of it in the end Luckily for him Joy was a very patient woman and endured it all with an open heart Gray s refusal to share his inner demons with Joy also led to some misunderstandings small ones thankfully and at one point I found myself wondering what kind of relationship he wanted to have with her He was confused and so was I Overall I really enjoyed this read despite the minor complaints mentioned above Ms Bird made me care for Gray and Joy and her writing kept the story flowing effortlessly As I ve grown to expect since I read my 1st book by Ms Bird there were echoes of JR Ward s very characteristic writing style in this book too and I m not sure how I feel about it because it s kind of distracting Not enough to ruin the read though. Is too innocent for a cynic like him So Gray won't let himself lay a hand on her…until the night he can no longer resist the woman she has become That's when he discovers a secret that leaves him gasping for breath and wanting. ,
