Five Stars and Three Cold Showers
on January 12, 2012
As an aspiring writer myself, I read a lot of books in different genres. As a research project for my first novel I read books that covered the mulitple-genre story I was telling (mystery-romance-drama) and I subsequently read a couple of romance novels by well-known authors. I have to say that, as far as I'm concerned, Patricia has absolutely nailed the romance novel style. I was very impressed. She writes with confidence and some of her descriptions, particularly the passionate scenes between the two main characters, were excellent almost to the point of sending me off to the bathroom for a cold shower! Or, at the very least. it made me consider dating again.
It's love at first sight for Blake and Delaney and, early on in the story, the expected happens. However, it's what occurs beyond that which makes the story interesting and engaging. I'm not going to give anything away but suffice it to say that circumstances tear the lovers apart. The author then did an excellent job of maintaining the tension and conflict between two people you very much want to get togther. Will they or won't they?
Add an adorable kid, a puppy and an ending that had me alternately laughing and crying and you've got a book well worth investing your time and money in.
I, for one, will be reading another Patricia Paris novel very soon.
