Trusting Online Reviews

I'll be the first to admit that I read online reviews religiously before I even get close to walking out of my apartment to buy a book. AAR, Mrsgiggles.com, The Romance Reader...you name'em, I read'em...I don't always agree with them 100% but they generally move me in the right direction. Generally...not always. The following is a list of the recent injustices dealt me by a few online review sites:

1. The Sherbrooke Bride, Catherine Coulter
2. Any Stephanie Laurens book
3. A Well-Favored Gentleman by Christine Dodd

Thanks for ruining a couple of good evenings when I could have been watching a real world rerun, which has a lot more wit, spice, romance and realism than these asinine books (and that's saying a lot). Don't buy them!!!

I'll have to keep the books you mentioned in mind so I can look elsewhere. What have you read lately that you do like? I'm looking for another good read.

Cheryl, the last good book I read was Heath's As the Earl Desires...I would recommend Heath's books and especially Judith Ivory's UNTIE MY HEART...I just wanted the hero to tie my up...it was that good!!!
