I loved Evelyn "Evie" and Justin. Evie is so convinced that she is a golem, that she becomes an overachiever to compensate for her supposed ugliness. She thinks since she isn't pretty that being accomplished will make up for the lack to the man she marries. She has taken over her Aunt's wedding planning business and has been a total failure. When the opportunity arises to redeem herself she calls in a decade old favor to Justin Powell to host the wedding at his country estate.
Ten years ago she caught Justin I what she thought was a compromising position at her sister's coming out house party. To keep her quiet, Justin let's her believe what she wants and promises her a future favor for her silence.
From the very beginning, you feel the chemistry between these two. Their banter is at times laugh out loud funny. And while Evie's belief that she is a golem never really changes - she doesn't harp on it and doesn't feel sorry for herself. She is a vertigo! The wedding reception scene is priceless!!
While this book was a "spy" story - it was more Austin Powers than James Bond. The romance was subtle, but never in doubt. It wasn't as steamy as other books I have read by Ms. Brockway, but this story didn't suffer from the lack.
While this is book two in the Bridal Favors series - it is totally stand alone. The characters from the first book are not even mentioned in this book (other than the still missing Aunt Agatha).
My only complaint - no epilogue - I wanted more! I wanted to know what happened with Evie and Justin - at the very least see them marry!!
I'm sure it's just me...others have really liked this. I never saw any real connection between the H and the h. I often felt as if I were reading a cross between Victorian and contemporary. The storyline was choppy and it drifted. It was as if the author tried to do too much...a spy story with an oh, by the way, romance...oh, and don't forget to throw in some humor here and there. Sometimes the 'humor' worked, sometimes it didn't. Then there was the obligatory sex scene that seemed just that...obligatory. I didn't see any big buildup of emotion leading to it. At least there was no abduction in the story.
I have never been a person to read romance until recently, but Connie's colorful portrayals of exciting. interesting, and fascinating characters, that seem to leap out of every page has made me a convert, and I eagerly want to read all her books.
The romantic descriptions are thrust at you in such a way that they appear as if you were filming these love affairs yourself. The final ending is a challenging surprise.
Suitable for all ages.
