I enjoyed A Single Kiss very much so when I had the opportunity to read James' story I jumped at the chance.
James is a corporate lawyer in his family's practice. He's also the town's player. There isn't a woman he will not charm and he's happy with that fact--until Vera appears in his life.
Recently divorced and trying to move on with her life, Vera is not looking to depend on a man once again. Her focus is her daughter and her music. But try as she might, she can't help but be drawn to the charming lawyer that shows her that's there's more to life than what she's been living.
Although I enjoyed James' story, there were some elements that threw me off a bit. Even after taking into consideration that these were matured characters, I couldn't help but think that the language seemed outdated. I enjoyed most of the interactions between Vera and James, but some of those appeared stilted and bland which didn't help me to really grasp the extent of Vera and James' connection.
I could appreciate how the author went about bringing these two together, but with that lack of connection I just could not become invested in the relationship. It didn't help that their coming together took so much time to come around. Not that I was expecting them to jump in the sack right away, but the lack of any type of flirting disappointed me. Especially considering how charming James was.
Nonetheless, I enjoyed the premise of the story and getting to know these characters further. I didn't particularly connect with Vera much, but her story was interesting enough to keep my attention throughout. I especially enjoyed James' growth as the story progressed.Read more ›
Vera is a very successful and extremely talented concert pianist and single mom. Currently on a much needed hiatus after her second marriage ended in a tempestuous divorce, she and her eight year old daughter Twyla are now living a somewhat isolated life in the Maryland countryside. When someone begins harassing her, Vera is frightened, angry and quite certain her ex is behind the threats she has been receiving. Despite her fear, she fiercely guards her newly discovered independence and she rebuffs James’ offers of assistance. But James proves to be very stubborn and the two strike up a unlikely friendship that takes an unexpectedly romantic turn.
James is charming, light-hearted and very flirtatious. He is also quite popular with the ladies, but he never gets serious with any of his flings. However his one night stands have lost their luster recently and he has become more focused on his career. James is instantly drawn to Vera but he also respects her need for space. Their meeting coincides with his growing dissatisfaction with his life and his attempt to discover the source of this frustration leads to surprising introspection on his part. An impulsive decision provides an unexpected connection with Vera that allows their friendship to deepen.
Their transition from friends to lovers is leisurely and this gives both James and Vera the opportunity to get to know one another.Read more ›
