2.0 out of 5 stars Just talk, February 15, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: One True Love: A Regency Romance (Paperback)
This was a free Kindle download and I was pleasantly surprised to find it wasn't just a short, short story like a lot of those downloads are. It was actually pretty good. I liked Cassie and William and their rocky road to marital bliss. I enjoyed his large family and see many more stories ahead. The book moved along and I stayed fairly engrossed.
I was only fairly engrossed because I felt the love scenes were too many and too drawn out. I want to read about the characters talking, not just having sex. And that was the crux of my problem with this book. Not enough talking--just way too much jumping the gun and drawing the wrong conclusion. They both did it and it made me want to scream. They would start to talk and one would get offended or misinterpret what the other was saying and would storm out. This is a case of, if they had talked, they would have sorted out their problems. Of course that makes for an awfully short story. Take out the sex and there's not a lot left.
There is a good story here. IMO, it just needed a little refining. And more talking. I would rather read good dialogue from the characters than page after page of sex. That tends to blur a bit after a while. The books I remember the most and reread are the books with heartfelt dialogue between the characters.
