Review: An Unforgettable Lady by J.R Ward writing as Jessica Bird


An Unforgettable Lady by Jessica Bird

Frigging Amazing! Why did it have to end?! 

Grace Hall is a society beauty-but her fortune has made her the target of a madman killing off Manhattan's most influential women. Her new live-in bodyguard is uncompromising, hard-hearted John Smith. Moving into Grace's penthouse is the last thing he wants, but saying no isn't an option. As he lays down the rules for his new client, angry sparks ignite between them-as does an incendiary desire. As the warm nights grow hot, and the killer closes in, Grace and Smith face a crucial choice: follow the rules or follow their hearts.

My Thoughts:
J.R Ward is always a winner. No matter if she writing as herself or under Jessica Bird, her books are killer, 100 percent gold. I have yet to read a book by her that I did not like, which is saying something pretty big, since she has so many novels under her belt.

An Unforgettable Lady is a book that romance lovers cannot miss. Especially is your a suspense and mystery lover also.

Wealthy, gorgeous sophisticated woman meets a hard, wounded and unchangeable male.
At first you think, "okay, this isn't too original.." but it really is.
The only thing not original about it is the males name, John Smith. It's pretty funny actually.

John is a hard headed man, with a face and body anyone could love, but he isn't interested. That is of course until the beautiful Grace Hall walks into the room and he can't keep his eyes off her. He may think she's off limits to him, but that doesn't mean he can't look. And does he look!
At times, I found myself wanting to yell at John, he could be mean and rude and so... Hard headed. I guess that's just men for you. But although he was mean, I could see where he was coming from when he would lash out or say things he regretted. He was confused and hurt, and not used to feeling anything for anyone. And Grace made his mind and heart do a 180.

Grace a a great character. She's strong and smart, but not a kick butt type of heroine, which I liked for a change. She's not weak, but she is vulnerable. Everything is her life is making her just about to snap, between her dying father, her unhelpful, soon to be ex husband and now a death threat made out her her and all her friends, her life really seems to be going down hill. She is grateful for Johns help, and feels more protected from bodily harm, but she may be in some other kind of trouble when it comes to Mr. Smith.

What a book! I love, love, loved An Unforgettable Lady. Romance at it's finest, Jessica Bird is one hell of a writer. I'm so glad I read this book. I recommend that you do too!

Love romance when it's included in the story but does it have a Paranormal/UF aspect to it as well?

I doesn't :/ but honestly, it makes up for you, you don't even notice it doesn't have it. The guys are super tough and ex military, so they are super in a way. haha

Hmmm, that might just make up for no Para/UF. I like my men tough!!=)
