    1. Not a fan of the rapey books.And that s probably my biggest but not my only problem with Fairest of Them All.See, all I was hoping for was some fluffy romance like stuff, and possibly an new take on Beauty and the Beast For a few chapters, that s sort of what this was Then this clanging warning bell went off in my head when the hero s inner monologue got a bit wonky There were several other signs that things were careening from a quirky story to an icky story, but the writing wasn t awful, so I [...]


    2. Initial rating Low 3 stars.Revised rating Low 2 starsI went into this all bright eyed with wonder Teresa Medeiros is another one of my old school feel good authors and I can t even begin to tell you all the feels Goodnight Tweetheart left me.So I was pretty much shattered when I finished this.All was not fair It was dark It was very dark coming from Teresa.It felt like Disney never happened Like finding out The Little Mermaid was not all songs and HEA originally.I mean, this hurt This wasn t a r [...]

    5. Ohhhh boy Where to even begin with this one At the beginning, I suppose Not the beginning of the book, but my rocky relationship with Ms Medeiros as an author The thing is, she has a wild imagination, and her plots are usually her strength I would read her novels as straight up fantasy or science fiction or horror, if they d been written that way, because the plots are insane, in the best way.So, these are all compliments, right Why worry Well I read a reviewer recently say that she s sort of on [...]


    6. My review contains spoilers and they re mostly my thoughts as I went with the book This one s got 3 parts.This book is one of my most fav Teresa Medeiros medieval I ADORED this one.So far, 7 8 chps, I found some parts hilarious, some good and some stupid Ok, I don t dislike Holly She isn t that vain which is a good thing and fair doesn t always have to be blond, something I appreciated in this book because I expected her to have gold spun hair and baby blue eyes well, never mind that The thing i [...]


    7. The other reviewers have quite skillfully described the story, so I don t feel that I need to I like Ms Medeiros She s a talented author, and she tells a good story However, I had problems with both of the main characters For the first third of the book, I found the heroine to be bratty, spoiled, and inconsiderate She acted rashly, with little thought to the consequences of those actions on others By the second third of the book she begins to mature, comes to understand that some of her rash act [...]


    8. I was done with this book when the heroine throws an honest to goodness temper tantrum, complete with shrieking, thrashing, and banging of fists That s the behaviour of a five year old, not a grown woman.


    9. I m not sure what to write about this book Parts I really liked, others not so much Holly was vain and childish, Austyn was brutish and single minded The story went on and on and not much happened Don t get me wrong I love T Medeiros as an author but this was not one of her better books.


    10. Sir Austyn of Gaven is a Welsh knight, one of the most dangerous and powerful warriors in all of Wales The males of his family are cursed, doomed to marry beautiful but faithless women His grandfather imprisoned his wife in a tower for years, raping her every night finally, she jumped out the window Austyn s father strangled his mother because he thought wrongly that she had cheated on him We re told he s a skilled knight, yet never in the book do we see him training Pretty much all he ever does [...]


    11. Well, this is one of those books my BFF gave me because she just wanted to see my reaction About two weeks after she gave it to me she says Sodid you read that book I gave you I very dryly commented yes and didn t say anything else and I looked away And when I glanced at her, she was staring at the floor And finally after a very long pause and a ton of uncomfortable feet shuffling, she asks me what I thought I skillfully avoided the question until my dear friend pinned me down and asked about th [...]


    12. This is the first book by Teresa Medeiros that I ve read and it was great The characters are fresh and well drawn and the plot is very romantic with an element of the supernatural The author captures the medieval setting perfectly The thing I liked best about this book was the humor injected into it Holly is hilarious in her dealings with Sir Austyn who is as serious as a grizzly bear The love scenes in this book are amazing Holly is one of the best romance heroines.


    13. This one was sort of flat I didn t like the characters, and didn t really care if they ever worked it out or not.


    14. This is the 2nd Teresa Medeiros book I ve read recently that I haven t been crazy about I didn t mind the plot, but the characters annoyed me, especially Holly I get that her story arc was to show her maturing as the plot progressed, but it didn t work for me There are a lot of other Medeiros books that I d like to read, so I am hoping they improve

    19. I ve read a few Teresa Medeiros books and I ve always enjoyed them Not that I m saying this was the exception However, I will be brief in my review of this book.Overall, the book was a good read I think the writing, as usual, is excellent I must confess that midway through this book I started to get frustrated I felt confused, because at least twice because it felt like the hero and heroine kept flip flopping on feelings and their actions It was a see saw and I couldn t quite grasp what had just [...]

    22. Romance Harlequin bas de gamme.Le r sum s annon ait prometteur pour une bonne petite romance avec en plus une h ro ne au caract re bien tremp et une mal diction.Si au d but la lecture a t agr able, m me plut t sympathique, elle est rapidement devenue une d ception Je d conseille Fuyez



    23. Not sure about some aspects of the story The idea was nice Holly i.e Beauty was loved by everyone for her physical appearance She turned herself ugly because she wanted some freedom from the constraints her appearance has given her Austyn i.e Beast wanted someone unattractive because his family was cursed to bring ruin upon wives who are beautiful Holly wanted someone to value the person she is, so they should have worked out perfectly Of course, it didn t view spoiler Austyn decided that he had [...]

    25. J ai choisi cette romance en raison du titre et plus sp cifiquement du terme mal diction J ai toujours aim les histoires de magie, de sorci res et de mal diction J esp rais donc que cet aspect du roman serait tr s important histoire de rendre la lecture pas trop p nible H las, la mal diction est bien pr sente mais vous d couvrirez qu elle n est pas forc ment celle que l on croit Par cons quent, si comme moi vous esp reriez une bonne dose de magie et de fantastique, je vous conseille de passer vo [...]

    27. da sognipensieriparole Non contare solo sul tuo travestimento per disgustarlo, figliola Sii te stessa e vedrai che baster 3,5 Avevo letto altri libri di Teresa Medeiros e li avevo apprezzati ad esempio la serie paranormal dedicata alle sorelle Cabot, che consiglio Questo storico senza dubbio gradevole e originale, con uno stile frizzante almeno nella prima parte, quando lady Holly, gravata dalla maledizione di essere troppo bella e quindi desiderata da tutti i cavalieri inglesi, cerca di distogl [...]
