Round and interesting characters, the female protagonist is strong, smart, and likable, the male protagonist more likable as the story progresses. With the ability to get into the minds of both characters, more so the woman's, we can understand the decisions they make, and both scream at them for their stupidity at times and cheer for them at their successes. Without spoilers, there are unexpected twists along the way that keep the reader page-turning and surprised, even when it ends. It even begs for a sequel!
The settings and descriptions are also what one comes to expect from Rachel de Vine's skilled writing, and I particularly loved the London moments and the excitement surrounding the publishing world a writer only dreams of! The English Professor has some beautifully written erotic moments as well, but it's its story line and secondary characters that make de Vine's novels stand out among her peers. She is an adept story-teller, and this one has it all! A satisfying summer read of substance!
Time marches on....they lose contact....she starts a writing career and working in a bookstore. He had a writing career under a pseudonym that takes off but they go their very separate ways.
Ellie settles into a weird engagement/marriage with the son of the owner of the bookstore....talk about a life unfulfilled (total not a shock to learn why) ....her writing career takes off.
Time keeps marching on - 20 years! But this author makes it interesting. The secondary characters are very captivating, even the 'no so nice' ones. And the ending was not a surprise.
There's more inner monologues than I like but again enjoyable reading. Not really erotic or romantic but still a page turner.
