BOFF Bookclub Reviews 31/10/2012 for Disastrous by E L Montes


What??? look closely….there’s a book on the bed….therefore that David James Gandy pic is book related hehe J&G 😉

Valerie Marzeno Conforti  I just finished Disastrous…gave it 5 stars…I loved the momentum of the storyline and Marcus’ unwavering love…I would have liked their reuniting to be a little firmer but hopefully the next book will have them fully together…Loved Marcus’ POV…hurry next book… 🙂

Leslie Weinstein Metsch   Loved It! Marcus and Mia are terrific together and are both so damaged that they don’t know how to fit together. Their story had me hooked right from the beginning and you just couldn’t put it down. Now we only have to wait for book 2 to see what happens in their journey. A 4.5 star read for me!

Robyn Ross   Disastrous – loved it, I was hooked petty early on and then had trouble putting it down, even though it was killing me but I just needed to know what was going to happen next. Can’t wait to read where their journey takes them next 4.5 stars

Alina Stoica-Man 5 STARS. I loved everything about Disastrous. The story is beautifully written and it will keep you interested at all times. There are no “slow” parts and you will not be able to put it down. LOVED IT.

Lisa Harley I would give it 4.5 stars.  I started it last night and could not put it down! I was up until 3:30am finishing it! Had to know what was going on with Marcus!! I wanted Marcus to be a good guy through the entire book, and I loved how the author kept us guessing the whole time!

Melissa Mack-Miller Disastrous!!!!! What more can I say……Holy Heck!!!!! Can’t wait for the next one. Rating 4 out of 5 stars & this nail biter is well worth it!!!!!!

Tracy Shayler Disastrous so deserved 5 stars!  Had me hooked from the first page, can’t wait for the second book.

Katelynn Pinson  Disastrous-4.5 stars. I absolutely loved Marcus..I could feel his vulnerability…and his loyalty and I loved his secret..I think it brings all new meaning to “struggles” in a relationship. I also loved Mia although I think at times she was too easy going when it came to Marcus..she gave in to him a little too easily…and it was as if nothing ever happened..I was so upset when the situation occurred and she went in to the hospital..:( Even though I thought everything happened way too soon and it was definitely a whirlwind romance..I still ultimately loved the connection that the main characters share and of course all of the outside characters didn’t hurt. Jeremy..yum. Great book! I can’t wait for the next installment 🙂

Emma Hanaghan Disastrous – 3/5 At first i thought it was too predictable, and a little disappointed. By the end i think it redeemed itself. Just the right amount of emotion was there to keep me hooked, it wasn’t as real as some of the books i have read recently. Will read the next one to see how the story progresses.

Christina Vargas Disastrous / 4 stars, I didn’t feel a  great connection to the characters. Towards the end I did feel somewhat distraught and kept waiting for circumstances to improve. I will read the next book when it comes out, why not…. But I won’t be holding my breath.

Nicole Underwood Wish I could say I loved it more – only 3 stars for me. It just seemed a little too ‘neat’. Maybe missing the grittiness in angst?

Michelle Balcerski Rogus Just finished Disastrous. Loved it!!! The story was greaT and the twists made it so I couldn’t put it down! I loved Marcus and can’t wait until the next book. Hopefully it won’t be too long of a wait. 5 stars!

Teri Archer   This book is by far a 5 star for me. The book kept my on my toes from the beginning. I could not wait to see the relationship of Mia and Marcus evovle. I fell in love with both characters as they went through this rollarcoaster romance. Even though I wanted to hate Marcus for keeping so many secrets from Mia I couldn’t stop cheering for him to land the one girl that he truely loves. The author did an amazing job keeping me hooked throughout the book and it took everything to get me to put it down to take a break to run to the store! Don’t know how I’ll be able to wait for the next book in this series, but I have a feeling I will be pulling an all nighter to read it when it comes out!

Kim Cameron Berentsen   So just finished Disastrous..and OMG!!! I give it 5 stars!! I loved the characters, I laughed, I cried, and sighed ALOT!! I love the last part seeing Marcus’s point of view of their first meeting..I can’t wait until the next book!!

Hillary Hinz  Disastrous – 4.5 stars.  Enjoyed the quick development of the relationship of Mia & Marcus. I particularly like that Mia says what’s on her mind & goes with it. Awesome story line! Can’t wait for the next book.

Laurie Thurston Johnson    Review for Disastrous  I have conflicting thoughts on this book. As I liked the story line I felt I could not warm up to the Characters. I did not get attached to any of them.  I enjoyed the storyline but never felt invested in the characters. I did not feel any connections with them. I guess I would give this s 3 out of 5.

Brenda Stevens   I give Disastrous 4 stars. Loved that the dysfunction this time wasn’t the usual previous abuse. Refreshing to have something different. Liked both characters but I like my sex a little hotter. Will definitely read the next book to see what happens.

Ashley Hartigan Tkachyk 5 STARS!  I absolutely loved this book! The roller coaster of emotions, angst and passion were well balanced and kept me turning the page. Disastrous is defiantly made my top 10 list. A must read.

Michelle Cammack    4.5 Stars – This story was very paced and lust turned to love between Marcus Deluca and Mia very quickly which was kind of off-putting, but overall it was good.  The story built itself quickly and there was a lot of angst, passion, anger, frustration, etc. to keep you reading to the very end.

Suzanne Zvalaren Schneider  Disastrous was anything but a disaster – 4 stars! I loved Marcus! Can’t wait for the second book!

Alina Stoica-Man  I loved everything about Disastrous. The story is about Mia, a 24 yr old law student who is a very focused and dedicated student. She lost her father and brother, never met her mom, and has no friends aside from Jeremy. Bring in Marcus, sexy, rich, mysterious; also owns the law firm where Mia is about to do her externship. From the first meeting Marcus is drawn to her and lets her know he is interested in getting to know her. Their relationship is draining as well as extraordinary. The story is beautifully written and it will keep you interested at all times. There are no “slow” parts and you will not be able to put it down. Then only thing I did not like was the way it ended; it left me hanging and wanting for more.

Kathleen ODonnell Burley  O.M.G…. Disastrous by E.L. Montes 4 1/2 stars. Close to 5 stars but there were a few typos. LOVED this story. LOVED the angst! This is right up there with thoughtless and Effortless. Kudos on an awesome read. I could NOT put it down. I was out of town and actually read this instead of sightseeing. Bravo!

Lej Guevarra Teodosio  Finally finished Disastrous by E L Montes and I give it a 3.5 stars rating only because I find the story predictable from the get go. Mia’s brother is a cop, and Marcus is part of the mafia, so it’s easy to put the two together. Don’t get me wrong, I did find the love story of Marcus and Mia very interesting. What I liked the best though is Marcus character, how he lived a double life, and was very intrigued (up to now) as to why he just couldn’t leave the mafia. So I am assuming that there will be a book 2 to explain it, and also the epilogue gave a hint as well.

Len Francisco  3.5 Stars. This is a quick, sexy read. I like the interaction between Mia and Marcus. I also love that Mia never shy away from her feelings. If she have something to say, she’ll say it. Marcus is one hell of a sexy guy but sometimes he frustrates me. If only he opens up more to Mia then there won’t be so much misunderstanding. But then the story needs conflict. On that note, the “conflicts” don’t have the wow factor for me. Still, the book is overall good. Can’t wait for the second book.

Susan Pauloz Sunderlin  5++ stars!! Loved this book!! I loved Mia so much! I couldn’t stop reading as she fell into her involvement with Marcus. Marcus… what a complicated man. I could not put this book down. I’d recommend it highly. I look forward to reading more books by E.L. Montes. Thanks!

Janis K. Lewis   4.5 Stars Filled with passion, suspense, and side plots that helped make this book hard to put down. Can’t wait for book 2 to find out what’s next for Mia and Marcus!

Jovana Shirley  3 stars  Easy read and looking forward to sequel. Overly descriptive when not needed in some places, but still a good read.

Annjie Gamnje Gordon 4  stars I would have been happier if Mia was stronger. Marcus kept screwing up and she kept taking him back to easily! But I still enjoyed it.

 Maria Hernandez   Enjoyed reading Disastrous, although I did have a love/hate relationship with Marcus and my heart broke for Mia so much! I don’t want to spoil it for anyone who isn’t done reading yet but I definitely recommend this book, it’s a great 5 star read

Lee Clements :    3.5 – 4 stars – loved the book overall, particularly the second half, but thought that some parts were too detailed and then some rushed.

Peggy Cope Saunders   What a wonderful read I give it 4.5 stars This book had me on the edge of my seat…I found myself frustrated yet excited at the same time between biting my lip and grinding my teeth I couldn’t help but root for these two. Looking forward to more of the series.
