Love and appreciate how brilliantly Sylvain Reynard entwine religions and cultures. How in a once again amazing writing teaches the readers in so many ways. And mostly for cheering and emphasizing for kindness, love, hope, charity and peace.
Every word, every place every gesture has more than one meaning. Everything is so deep. For me this novel is a special surprise on many levels.
I visited Paris in October and unknowingly I went around the places mentioned in the novel several times. I also visited all the other places mentioned in the novel.
While reading it I felt being there once again, the descriptions are amazingly vivid.
Sylvain Reynard has done it again. Yes he makes us readers feel special.
What do I mean by that? Well reading The Man in the Black Suit you are experiencing places, artwork, relationships as if you are there in the middle of everything, as if you are the protagonist yourself. It is a wonderful captivating story that takes us readers traveling enjoying settings created with so much realistic and amazing detailed writing.
This is another book by Sylvain Reynard that captivated me from start to finish. The alternating chapters from Nicholas and Acacia’s POW is a new style for SR, but once you start reading you can’t stop. The mystery, the intrigue, the suspense, the secrets both characters are hiding makes this novel a “one sitting read”. You can’t get enough, it is impossible to put it down.
I enjoyed immensely to learn about the real man behind the Black Suit, but also who Acacia really is. These two new characters created by Sylvain Reynard are both facing a personal development, but they are actually survivors. Acacia is a strong compassionate heroine filled with so much understanding and love. Nicholas is also a strong and noble character. He does everything in his power to protect his loved ones.
Having three religions in my family, and being an immigrant gives me the extra experience to understand culture /religion fusions. Loved every minute of this epic writing. This is once again a brilliant novel from SR penmanship.
Thank you Sylvain Reynard for your research, knowledge, love of art, beautiful places, your determination to want to lift your charachters to better insight, for wanting them to be better persons and for believing in unconditional love and kindness. Also for lifting so important issues as terrorism and weapon trafficking.
Lastly for believing in inclusion, diversity of traditions, of religions, of cultures, of language, of nations.
Thank you for writing!
The Man in the Black Suit has just the right amount of mystery, intrigue, and suspense to hook you and hold onto you. The couple does not fall immediately into bed with one another as happens so often in many 'traditional' romance novels. Reynard's romantic scenes are written in such a way that makes you long for something just as sweet. As it's called in the 'worldwide phenomenon' sweeping the planet, the 'kinky effery' just isn't there and I like that about SR's novels.
There was definitely an 'ah ha' moment for me that turned out not to be what I thought. Without giving anything away, I was convinced as Acacia was about something she learned about Nicholas only to learn differently a few paragraphs later.
"I'm interested in the way literature can help us explore aspects of the human condition, particularly suffering, sex, love, faith, and redemption" is what is written in the 'About the Author' section at the end of the book. SR, you have succeeded again in doing just that with The Man in the Black Suit.
This novel is written as a standalone and I think it deserves to stay that way. Sure I'd love to see into Acacia and Nicholas's future but I feel the book ends right where it should.
The man in the Black Suit is sexy, suspenseful, romance, sex and lots of drama, entertaining but also heartfelt and emotionally charged. I loved all the characters and the author did an excellent job with character development, not only with Nicholas and Acacia, but also with a few of the behind the scenes players. You can’t help but fall in love with all the characters Mr. Reynard gives us. All of the secondary characters were great and added to the story in some way. Sylvain Reynard stories always suck me in and I devour them in less than a day and this book was no different. The flow and pace of the story was spot on. I loved that this story was filled with a lot of outside drama….the focus was primarily on Nicholas Cassirer and Acacia Santos. Their love story was intriguing enough that it kept me enthralled and turning the pages (quickly). Mr. Reynard seems to just know how to keep the reader excited to read the next chapter until the end. The ending just gives you this goofy smile.
Riveting, thrilling, sexy, page turner... I'd say those are adequate words to describe the book.
Acacia is a great heroine. She's very genuine, a great person and although she's quite tough, her vulnerability keeps her a bit more realistic. She's hiding some pretty dark secrets though which it turns out goes well with her attraction to Nicholas.
Broody, a bit grumpy at times, sensuous, dangerous? All words that for our hero plus a heaping side of sexy.
The plot is well thought out, the story flows well and I thought it started out quite well despite being a bit wordy. Yes, this is a long book. There are a lot of descriptions but for me, that works with SR when it doesn't work for other authors. I felt what the characters felt and I saw what they saw. And I think that's pretty amazing.
This is a stand alone! So buy it folks and read it!
