A Matter of Time, Vol. 2 - Mary Calmes 4.5

I have a love/hate relationship with these books. So much about them irritates me - yet I can't put them down once I start reading.

As much as the references to 'the beautiful' people in these stories annoyed the living daylights out of me, as much as Jory being fed every two seconds (admittedly there was less of this in vol 2)annoyed me even further, as much as Jory doing a disappearing act every two seconds was just unbelievable - I was compelled to read, and what's more I enjoyed it. I honestly can't think of another example of a book where I could list all the bits I didn't like and still have been unable to put it down.

Jory and Sam are great, even with their irritating ways. Maybe it's just me being a grump, god knows I can be. The story did venture into the realms of the unbelievable - I still didn't put it down. Jory should by rights have been head hunted by the FBI for the amount of evidence he found that the police didn't and Sam, where does he get off bossing Jory around and telling him he belongs to him? (BTW - don't stop Sam, I loved it - even though I hated it).

So really vol 2 left me as confused as vol 1 - I will have to check out more Mary Calmes books, even if it is like looking at clown porn.
