This review is from: Acrobat (Kindle Edition)
I'm a huge fan of Mary Calmes and Acrobat would have to rank in the top 5 of my favorites from her. Ann87's review is spot on and would have to agree that Calmes changed up her formula of story telling a bit in Acrobat.
The first half of the book doesn't provide much direction but the readers are immersed with her usual lovable characters as they are developed. While there was romance throughout the book, the true love interest didn't occur until much later and even then, it was subtle realization that two neighbors who had a mutual goal in raising a teenaged boy (Dreo as the adoptive parent and Nate as the boy's friend/mentor) meshed so well together. One of my pet peeves with some of her previous books (and the genre in general) is instant attraction followed by multiple scenes of sex which disrupt the story flow. (I understand a lot of that is added at the behest of publishers.) Acrobat had the right mix that blended in well.

I agree about the endless and minutely detailed sex scenes every four pages that only detract from the story line. They get BORING!!!
