Lita’s Book Review: 5 Stars
Moody by Penelope Ward. Dax Moody is an uptight venture capitalist who has a traveling massage therapist come to his house to help him unwind. Dax is dealing with a lot of things going on in his life and this is the only time he has done anything like this. What doesn’t happen is the massage. Wren loves her job and she is good at it. She is requested by a client she has never visited before. When she meets Dax she can see how badly he needs her services. However the way he is acting she isn’t quite sure why he requested her services. Wren ends up giving Dax the nickname of Moody based on their interaction. There is an attraction between the two but Dax has made it clear nothing can happen between the two of them. Wren can feel the attraction between her and Dax and his mixed actions further solidify his nickname. This story was more than I could have expected. I definitely didn’t see what happened coming.The story was so enjoyable. I couldn’t get enough of Dax and Wren. I was rooting for them. My emotions were all over the place with this story and I am glad to report I was left with a smile on my face. A true emotional story. I didn’t put this book down till I was finished. Not this author’s typical story. So much more. Didn’t think she could out do herself, but she did. Loved it. Loved the all the characters in this story and would love to read more about some of them in other books. Wouldn’t mind more of Wren and Dax. 5 star read for me.
Bettina’s Book Review: 3 Stars
Honestly, I don’t know what to think about Moody. This is the first book by Penelope Douglas that I was not a big fan of. It was too much back and forth between Wren and Dax. I was frustrated too many times to count. While many of her books stay with me after Moody just didn’t click with me. I am still looking forward to future books because this book doesn’t change my love for this author’s books.
