“A seemingly absurd or contradictory statement or proposition which when investigated may prove to be well founded or true. A person or thing that combines contradictory features or qualities.”
Laughter and sadness ... loyalty and betrayal ... forgiveness or resentment, and, the keeping of vows versus the abandonment of them. These very human emotions are at the heart of this book, so ask yourself, what would you do in Shane’s parent’s situation, what would your significant other do???
I can easily say that I adored Shane, even as his grumpy @rse made me cringe at times, and even though he deserved somewhat of a tong up, Janelle and her sisters were a tag team of rabid animals, much to my delight! Simply put, I loved every one of the main and lead characters in this book. Shane and Janelle together were steamy and electric, when he wasn’t stuffing things up, and, I’m looking forward to this entire series!!!!
CA harms mixes the two extremes of emotion, balancing them out into the perfect formula for another fantastic book; an enemies to lovers story, and when authors like CA do the job, it’s easy to see why readers become addicted to this trope.
I believe that Ms. Harms has the gift to bring out any emotion she chooses in her readers, be it ugly crying or howling with laughter. In Paradox, I did both, and she bought the two emotions together in a perfect reflection of the title, a perfect reflection of Shane. The utter despair that his life has been for the last few years, in a juxtaposition against some of the hilarious situations that have been penned within the pages of this book. Again, she has written everything that defines a great Romance story. This book deserves every one of it’s 5 Stars, and I am so looking forward to more, especially Janie. That younger sister of Janelle’s is going to give some poor guy a run for his money!!!!
Shane is totally stressed in life. His lively and beautiful mother was hit by a drunk driver, and is now almost catatonic. Shane works two jobs to keep her in a facility that is both caring and wonderful. He also visits her daily and gives up a lot of sleep and a good chunk of his life to care for her. He’s angry because his dad left when things got tough, and left Shane with the total burden for her care. Janelle Pearson moves into the house next door to Shane. It’s been empty for a while, and Shane treasures the quiet. Needless to say, loud stereo music and the sounds of hammering nails at 7 am do not go over well for Shane and Janelle’s first meeting.
There are beautiful things about this story. The family relationship with the Pearson sisters and even with their parents is fun and amazing. There are also angry times and misunderstandings. Shane and Janelle each jump to erroneous conclusions a time or two, and have to find their way back to each other. Their motivations are clearly delineated, but pride and stubbornness definitely get in the way at times. The pacing is good, but there were a couple of slower sections that dragged slightly. It was also difficult to figure out the timeline. His mother has been in the home for 3 years for most of the story, and then suddenly it’s been 5 years...yet his father has only been visiting for months, and he started slightly before the 3-year mark. It just didn’t add up for me.
Other than those minor issues, it was an engaging read and it was obvious that the book has been proofread, as there weren’t noticeable errors in grammar or syntax.
