The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie  -  Jennifer Ashley

I'm finished - the remaining pages are an excerpt from Mac and Isabella's book.


Eh. At the moment I'm leaning towards 2 stars, maybe 2.5 because it improved near the end. My main issues:


- Too much sex or thinking about sex, and not enough romance or friendship-building (every time Beth called herself Ian's friend, I wanted to snort, because all they ever did was have sex or lust after each other).


- Beth agreeing to marry Ian was supremely stupid. So was Beth's decision to ask Ian to be her lover. I could never get past that, even though there were some nice moments after they were married.


Hopefully I can write a full review soon.
