- Read for an MMR Bingo challenge: Men With Pets -
3 1/2 stars
This was a re-read for me, and it wasn't quite as good the second time around. All the mysteries and suspense resolved a little too quickly and easily, and the villain's motivations and actions didn't make much sense. But these With and Without books are definitely a lot of fun to read, and J.L. Langley is getting better with time. Without Reservations was much better than With Love, and the later books are better still. The plots are getting better and the characters more three-dimensional. And it is fun to spend time in the community and catch up with the characters from previous books.
Since this was a "men with pets" book, I should say something about the puppy. Pita was cute and mischievous and stole a few scenes. But he didn't make the impression on me that Winston from Edward Unconditionally did.
