Jacob sees something in Carmen and is convinced he can help her regain her power of speech. When danger starts stalking Jacob, he wonders if he will have the power to save himself. I thought the suspense that was involved was awesome and I was left wondering till the very end!
I loved Miss Mabel and the references to Nina Simone made my heart sing.
The romance was slow and most of the story was boring. I did like Carmen though.
I did love watching this suspense story unfold. You don’t know who the bad guy is till the very last minute. But it was Carmen who fascinated me. She was so complex. She was tortured by a psychopath, walked away alive, but just couldn’t bring herself to talk since. It was interesting to see how she lived daily life without ever saying a word. I felt so bad for Carmen as she tried to pick up the pieces of her life, getting back to her dancing, but obstacles kept getting in her way. And then she found the love for singing (yup, long story) and found a second calling. It was like seeing her in a new light. I really, really liked Carmen in every way.
Really, it comes down to that I was bored 80% of the time. The plot took too long to get fleshed out. Not enough was happening at any time to make me want to pick this book back up.
Jacob’s story was just not that interesting to me. I didn’t really care for him as a character either. He was so boring and then creepily forward at random times. Carmen deserved better.
I just didn’t feel like this book had it’s crap together. Without Carmen, Body Language had nothing except an okay mystery element.
There was almost no romance until the very end. I expected more build up but Carmen and Jacob barely acknowledged each other outside the therapist office. It was so odd. Then, all of a sudden, bam, they like each other 80% into the book.
One sex scene and it was a little awkward. The sex is somewhat described so it is an adult or new adult book.
I can’t really recommend Body Language to people. It just didn’t have enough pizazz to keep someone reading. It’s such a slow book in every way. But I am happy to have met Carmen. Not recommended.
I start to get up, but before I can stand, she stops me, reaching out for the first time and resting her small hands on my shaking ones. In that touch, a thousand words pass between us. Somehow, it stops being important that she can’t speak. In that moment, the only thing that matters is that she’s here listening to me, when she could just as easily get up and walk out the door.
I smooth crimson lipstick over my lips again, and look at myself in the mirror as I slide the veil back down over my eyes. In the bright vanity lights, one can see right through, but on stage it provides just enough shadow to hide my identity, almost like the mask on a superhero. But, I’m anything but super and I sure as hell haven’t saved anyone.
