I would love to have a Girls Lunch Date with a Dirty Martini and Talk Bookish and Non-Bookish with you all. Well since I can not have that, Noontime Martini was created.
Hi everyone. I was going through some old reviews to see how I use to write them. I came across a review from one of my favorite authors and forgot I even read this book. Sadly it was not a hit for me and I am sure this is my reasoning for not remembering. I love when a hero has a nickname. I feel like I am getting an extra treat when this happens. I was not a fan of this heroes nickname but that is not the reason for my miss with this book. I got to thinking if anybody else has ever came across a heroes nickname that was not appealing.
Jagged by Kristen Ashley
Series: Colorado Mountain #5
An old flame rekindled . . .
Zara Cinders always knew Ham Reece was the one, but he wasn't interested in settling down. When she found someone who was, Ham walked out of her life. Three years later, Zara's lost her business, her marriage, and she's barely getting by in a tiny apartment on the wrong side of the tracks. As soon as Ham hears about Zara's plight, he's on her doorstep offering her a lifeline. Now, it will take every ounce of will power she possesses to resist all that he offers.
Ham was always a traveling man, never one to settle down in one town, with one woman, for more time than absolutely necessary. But Ham's faced his own demons, and he's learned a lot. About himself, and about the life he knows he's meant to live. So when he hears that Zara's having a rough time, he wants to be the one to help. In fact, he wants to do more than that for Zara. A lot more. But first, he must prove to Zara that he's a changed man.
I assumed going into Jagged the heroes nickname is Ham from the blurb. I could never pass up a Kristen Ashley novel. She is the queen of delicious alpha male heroes. Graham Reece is a sexy name for a hero. Personally I would of loved Reece as his nickname. Not a piece of meat. His nickname for the heroine is Cookie. I am thinking these nicknames were meant to sound cute and funny. Everybody has different taste and I am sure many have loved these nicknames.
Grab a coffee, tea or cocktail and lets chat.
Have you ever dislike a heroes nickname? Have you read Jagged?
