    I ll be brief This book is not good Not good at all The blurb is intriguing, but the story itself is so dumb it s hard to even wrap your head around it.Both leads are incredibly childish and make unbelievably stupid decisions They go from deciding one thing to deciding another in a page But not talking themselves around, just almost like the author lost her train of thought and went off in a totally different direction.A total waste of my time Pages and pages of nonsense And it s not I ll be brief This book is not good Not good at all The blurb is intriguing, but the story itself is so dumb it s hard to even wrap your head around it.Both leads are incredibly childish and make unbelievably stupid decisions They go from deciding one thing to deciding another in a page But not talking themselves around, just almost like the author lost her train of thought and went off in a totally different direction.A total waste of my time Pages and pages of nonsense And it s not because this book is an offshoot and I didn t read the first series Lordy, if I had even read one of this author s earlier works, I m pretty sure I d never have picked this one up no matter how cheap it was The back stories are laid out well enough I wasn t asking any questions, it s all pretty clear It s just bad Very poorly written and contrived

    REDEEMED I was on the verge of making this my last read by this author since the last few in the Grant Clan series were so dissappointing I am so glad this one turned out better.This is the first of what appears to be a branch off of the Clan Grant Series Although it can probably be a stand alone, I think it sfulfilling if you have read the Grant Series first.This was written a bit differently with the H h having already established their love for each other I do miss the courting REDEEMED I was on the verge of making this my last read by this author since the last few in the Grant Clan series were so dissappointing I am so glad this one turned out better.This is the first of what appears to be a branch off of the Clan Grant Series Although it can probably be a stand alone, I think it sfulfilling if you have read the Grant Series first.This was written a bit differently with the H h having already established their love for each other I do miss the courting and wooing, the build up to the romance, but even so, I think she did a good job of showing the love between Loki and Arabella without it I also like that she finally chose to not make the hero a childish manwhore braggart He was not a virgin, but his past escapades weren t flaunted around This made him a muchlikable hero IMHO.There is still some work needed in the logic of some of the plot and character actions mostly the antagonists They are a little rough around the edges I like that the author has minimized the roles of the previously annoying clan children.I still wantof the Scottish words she use to use in her earlier works. the doona s willna s, etc but it works ok for me as is.A fewlove scenes would be nice as well Hint hintWith this, I most likely will continue with the next in the series

    Immature hero audible review Okay, I was so glad when this book ended The hero Loki was way too immature and annoying The heroine had a couple of TSTL to stupid to like moments The story line and plot were just okay Nothing great I like my hero s strong and confident This hero was not.This was a struggle to get through Sigh As for the narration Not that great He made the hero even sound immature But I guess you could call that good since the character himself was Glad this wa Immature hero audible review Okay, I was so glad when this book ended The hero Loki was way too immature and annoying The heroine had a couple of TSTL to stupid to like moments The story line and plot were just okay Nothing great I like my hero s strong and confident This hero was not.This was a struggle to get through Sigh As for the narration Not that great He made the hero even sound immature But I guess you could call that good since the character himself was Glad this was a free book onand 1.99 for the audible

    So I find the Grants addictive If I didn t I doubt I would have returned to this world after the way the Clan Grant series ended, but there is something appealing about these characters she s createdanyway.Loki is of course a favorite He s always been the plucky little kid that was sneaky but helpful in every book he s been in Unfortunately clever little Loki grew up to be a bit of an insecure push over dumb dumb.So he s in love with Arabella, who brings NOTHING to the table by the way, So I find the Grants addictive If I didn t I doubt I would have returned to this world after the way the Clan Grant series ended, but there is something appealing about these characters she s createdanyway.Loki is of course a favorite He s always been the plucky little kid that was sneaky but helpful in every book he s been in Unfortunately clever little Loki grew up to be a bit of an insecure push over dumb dumb.So he s in love with Arabella, who brings NOTHING to the table by the way, but her dad doesn t approve because he s not a real Grant Um ok, that used to be a thing, except that her family seems poor and her dad practically spits in the face of the laird of the clan, his wife, his brother and his nephew and passes up a chance for his daughter to go live a better life with the most powerful family in the area He also wants to keep her close by so he doesn t miss her, but he marries his other daughter off the someone who lives far away who isn t a Grant so..what s the reasoning here On a side note, their romance starts differently in that Loki and Bella know each other already when the story starts, so you miss them falling in love with each other, but since Montclair usually does a love at first sight thing, I thought this actually madesense because they ve known each other for years by the time the story starts.So off Loki goes in a time before DNA testing to find his long lost father to prove to Arabella s dad he s good enough.I will say this The big fight scene at the end was better than usual Usually this author just speeds through like there isn t supposed to be any suspense, but this one was ok.The sex scenes were ok At least they were a bit different from her other books I ve said it once, but it s still true, most the time it s as if all her male leads share notes on what to do in bed.almost as if someone were copying and pasting.To sum up bit of a disappointing kick off the the next generation of Grants, but if you generally like her book, you ll probably like this one.I ve left out part of my full review because of spoilers, but you can check it out herehttps honestromancereviews.wordpresplease consider following my blog if you found it helpful I just launched it so I m going through the painful process of building up followers

    I don t know how many times I wanted to stop reading this train wreck of a novel I kept going because I have some stupid determination to finish every book I read this year If I had a physical copy instead of listening to the audio which was another disaster I would have thrown it at the wall multiple times 1 The only thing in this book set in the 1280s are the names, well the name of the king at least Everything else is very Victorian, from the clans, to the clothes, to the technology , I don t know how many times I wanted to stop reading this train wreck of a novel I kept going because I have some stupid determination to finish every book I read this year If I had a physical copy instead of listening to the audio which was another disaster I would have thrown it at the wall multiple times 1 The only thing in this book set in the 1280s are the names, well the name of the king at least Everything else is very Victorian, from the clans, to the clothes, to the technology , to the prude behaviors and attitudes 2 I could have overlooked the many anachronisms if the story was at least good But it was dreadful The characters were all one note I didn t like any of them, at all Seriously, most of them were stupid The heroine why would you do that The hero why are you so insecure The heroine s father the hero s name is Loki Grant, end of story He is a Grant, no one gives two farthings about blood He s apparently worthy enough for everyone but the lowly villager, who does what exactly Who is he Why does anyone care Get him off Grant land The hero s father Seriously How stupid is that plan And that one also facepalm He just needed a white cat to sit on his lap so he could steeple his fingers and laugh maniacally 3 The word sire Could it have been use anyoften 4 The narrator wasn t horrible but I think he must have been holding himself back from laughing at certain points because this book was so bad It was difficult to listen to 5 At one point I started reading passages to my SO and he would make up what he thought was a stupid next line andoften than not he was right Just awful writing The one positive I received was all the laughter we had reading the passages to each other and discussing how bad it was 6 Once the book was over, it kept going For another hour andanachronisms andsecrets revealed which I didn t care about andhorrible character decisions And why Do yourself a favor and read something else

    Loki is the first book in the The Highland Clan series by Keria Montclair, however it is related to previous books and series by the author Readers that have read the authors other books will already have some character knowledge for our hero, but newcomers will be able to fully enjoy this series opener, but just might want to go back and read the other books out of curiosity if they love the style and characters so fair warning there.Loki Grant s first memories are of living in a crate behind Loki is the first book in the The Highland Clan series by Keria Montclair, however it is related to previous books and series by the author Readers that have read the authors other books will already have some character knowledge for our hero, but newcomers will be able to fully enjoy this series opener, but just might want to go back and read the other books out of curiosity if they love the style and characters so fair warning there.Loki Grant s first memories are of living in a crate behind an inn in Ayr, struggling to survive Clan Grant saved him from his lonely existence and took him in as one of their own But though the Highlands have become his home and he loves his adopted parents, Brodie and Celestina, Loki feels lost Part of him is still that scrappy wee lad who relied on his wits to survive the streets, and he is not sure he belongs The feistiest and most beautiful lass in the clan, Arabella, steals his heart, but when her father resists the match because Loki is not of clan blood, Loki decides to confront his past He wishes to satisfy Bella s father by discovering his parentage, but he also hopes his quest will help him understand his purpose As far as Arabella is concerned, Loki Grant is the wiliest, most handsome warrior in existence She is determined to have him as her husband regardless of what her father thinks So when Loki s search for his sire leads him into trouble, she rushes headlong after him Together, Loki and Arabella must discover the dark secrets of Loki s origins, for only by confronting the past can they hope for a bright future together.Loki is a book with some tremendous highs, and some annoying lows I loved Loki s character for the most part He is very clever and resourceful He cares deeply about his adopted family and will do anything to protect others However, because of his background and the way some clan members look down on him because of it he has no faith or trust in himself or his worth This is well handled, and well written as part of the story However, I wasthan a little annoyed at his belief that because he had trouble putting emotion into words that he did not have them, even after he dwells on how much love he has for people for a good chunk of time Similarly, I loved how Arabella knew her own mind, was smart and a hard worker, but still let her family treat her like a servant He father is the biggest issue as far as I am concerned, because if it were not for him none of thedangerous moments would have taken place She could talk to the laird and warriors, and was willing to risk her life on several occasions, but could not stand up to her sister or father That really bothered me So, lets move on.I thought there was plenty of action, and that the admitted love between out couple made the crises that kept them apartpoignant Loki s journey to find his family had its good moments, and triggered the majority of the most dangerous and painful moments of the book However, io loved how he was always looking out for others, in particular a boy that reminded him of himself as a child All of his thoughts and actions showed him to be so much better than he gave himself credit for, though I was so glad that the important people around him could see it to.Loki is a romance with complex characters, adventure, danger, and suspense Readers that already love the author will be reading without any urging, and will be glad for the read Those that are easily frustrated by the character issues I mentioned above will likely still enjoy the read, but will be as annoyed as I at those bits of the story
