    With this novel, I m willing to hold my pencil in my right hand and my ballot in my left hand and make a noncommittal commitment and say this was an average read for me It reminded me of hayrides and meandering joyrides It provided insights into a world where affection proved at a premium and offered up sexless marriages and ambition and ego that overshadowed all other experiences and problems It filled me with broken promises and unfulfilled dreams.Suzanne Corso lets her love of Brooklyn and With this novel, I m willing to hold my pencil in my right hand and my ballot in my left hand and make a noncommittal commitment and say this was an average read for me It reminded me of hayrides and meandering joyrides It provided insights into a world where affection proved at a premium and offered up sexless marriages and ambition and ego that overshadowed all other experiences and problems It filled me with broken promises and unfulfilled dreams.Suzanne Corso lets her love of Brooklyn and The Big Apple and Manhattan, the Statue of Liberty, congestion, population overflows, toll roads and toll bridges and bountiful high rises and dollar bills and cab rides, limos, Mercedes convertibles, and BMWs and stock options and Wall Street and Main Street shine through on the page What would a novel that includes the NYSE be, though, without acquisitions and mergers and accounting irregularities and power and authority and reckless greed and constant excess and careless abandon and penile injections and horny dogs and 20K a day porn stars In that regard, THE SUITE LIFE reminded me of Congress and the DC area.But this novel proved to be a bitthan just A Gay Day Sure, it had the syrupy air and atmosphere of women s fiction, but I enjoyed the somewhat loose connection to a Wall Street powerbroker with a private jet and helicopter and his Long Island compound, even if Alec DeMarco did like to shoot himself full of HGH, testosterone, steroids, alternative and natural medicine, designer drugs, and popped the occasional Percocet.Since I could practically live on food and finance and books and movies, I didn t mind all the references to stocks and bonds, trading companies, investment firms, and real estate and restaurants and shows, clubs, strippers, hookers, and escort services and porn, pot, and pills But keep in mind, this book does have the occasional college age floozy and loose women who strive for .It proved to be a relatively light read where I could park my brain at the door and forget who I was for a few hours And that was A OK by me.I received this book for free through NetGalley.Cross posted at Robert s Reads

    The Suite Life was interesting but nonetheless not very original and rather dull and predictable I liked the writing style but not the pace of the book or the generic, typical story.

    Growing up in Brooklyn, Samantha Bonti dreams of one day being a writer She found the courage to break free from her an abusive mobster and eventually finds the man of her dreams Alec is a successful Wall Street broker, but things are not as they seem and when he makes a risky business move, Sam is left scrambling to pick up the pieces of her crumbling fairy tale.This isn t really the type of book I would read but I liked the idea a novel about a writer, a mobster and a crumbling life That wa Growing up in Brooklyn, Samantha Bonti dreams of one day being a writer She found the courage to break free from her an abusive mobster and eventually finds the man of her dreams Alec is a successful Wall Street broker, but things are not as they seem and when he makes a risky business move, Sam is left scrambling to pick up the pieces of her crumbling fairy tale.This isn t really the type of book I would read but I liked the idea a novel about a writer, a mobster and a crumbling life That was enough to peek my interests and I thought it was enough of a risk for me to try Unfortunately it wasn t a book for me and I should have abandoned it but I persevered This novel didn t have enough to deal with the mobster ex boyfriend, which was one of my first disappointments I got a sense that Sam wasn t really as damaged by the relationship as the author wanted us to believe and I really struggled with that I actually thought Alec wasdamaging than the ex, with his emotional blackmail and need for control.Let s look at the relationship between Sam and Alec for a moment The relationship felt a little too much like Edward and Belle from Twilight I know some people think that is romantic but I really have a problem with it Ordering for your date can be romantic but when it is a first date and they hardly know each other, it just feel weird and out of place Also Alec felt too controlling and I got the impression he would sulk if he didn t get his own way There were also times I thought Alec would turn into Christian Grey from Fifty Shades of Grey that might have made things a little different but still not my type of book.I must admit that Suzanne Corso has a decent writing style and with a bit of work she could become an interesting writer The Suite Life could use with a good hard editing, removing all the repetitiveness and cutting anything that was just filler but then the book would be too short Some parts felt rushed and some parts dragged on too much, Corso needed to workon backstory and show the reader just what Sam has been through The Chick Lit approach feels like any pain and suffering has been down played and this really didn t do the novel any justice.There was also not enough to do with Sam s desire to make it as a writer and it felt like she quickly abandoned her passions when she got a taste of the high life The synopsis for this book made me think that this book was set in the 1980 s but I turned out to be the 1990 s There wasn t much nostalgia about the 90 s the only real reference was repetitive mentions of Alanis Morissette Also if Alec is so rich and living the highlife, I wonder why he was driving such an old car Having read this book I have since found out that The Suite Life is a sequel to Brooklyn Story and all the backstory and information about her mobster ex boyfriend would be covered in that book I suppose this book could work as a stand alone but I think it was missing too much information that must have been covered in the first book Will I read book one Maybe, but I m not in a hurry to find out about Sam s life before Alec and there are just too many other novels to read.This was an interesting reading experiment I probably should have doneresearch on a book before reading it but sometimes it is fun to go in blind While this book wasn t for me, I m sure that some people will enjoy it I aminterested in diving into the emotions and looking at what drives and motivates people but The Suite Life just glossed over that I m not a romance or Chick Lit reader so I don t know if this is the norm I really hope not.This review originally appeared on my blog

    I wanted to read Suzanne Corso s book because I m interested in how Wall Street operates particularly in light of the Madoff scandal Corso didn t give much insight into muchthan how phony and superficial the life style of people making huge megabucks really is The main character, Samantha Bonti, says all she wants is to be happy, eating popcorn in bed and watching old movies on TV with someone who loves her for who she is She says her main goal in life is to have a book she s worked on I wanted to read Suzanne Corso s book because I m interested in how Wall Street operates particularly in light of the Madoff scandal Corso didn t give much insight into muchthan how phony and superficial the life style of people making huge megabucks really is The main character, Samantha Bonti, says all she wants is to be happy, eating popcorn in bed and watching old movies on TV with someone who loves her for who she is She says her main goal in life is to have a book she s worked on for years get published The problem is, her character is written as someone who, in spite of all kinds of testimonials about her strong sense of faith, doesn t seem very committed to much of anything long term Throughout the book I had the feeling I was missing something, and in fact, I was There was a previous book published about Samantha Bonti s life in which she became involved with a gangster and had a very contentious relationship with her mother Perhaps this story would have madesense to me had I read the first book Instead I was constantly put off by how stupidly Samantha went off with one bad decision after another She seemed to have a firm grasp of hindsight, but very little self awareness when dealing with problems in her life.That said, I did like Suzanne Corso s writing While she did repeatedly cover ground she explored previously, she found a way to phase the experiences in different terms so that I never simply rushed through any part of the book to be done with it In fact, I would read this author again because I think theshe writes, the better she ll get.I am giving this book 3 out of 5 stars and look forward to seeing whatCorso does in the future.I received a copy of this book from Net Galley in exchange for which I agreed to do an honest review

    At first, I was not sure that I was going to like this as much as the first book, but the story held my interest Alec was an out of control character, who I knew had to be too good to be true I would get very annoyed by Samantha sometimes I felt that she could have made a better effort to change her life for the better for her and her daughter I m going to read the last book in this trilogy and hope for the best.
