Smudge is a contradiction in characteristics. He's got the tough guy look with the sweet guy persona. He loves romance books, wants to find love, and he's an artist. There are so many wonderful qualities to love in him it was no surprise to me he was an absolutely sweetheart to Raleigh while Raleigh worked out how he wanted to tell him his story. If I could believe any man would accept the past Raleigh presented alongside the potential future problems he offered up for a relationship with him? I'd say Smudge was that man. He's a kind man with an honest heart who happens to be quite visually colorful.
Raleigh has a story which is designed to break hearts. I was no exception in spite of already having a vague idea what he intended to confess as his past history. I'll admit the sexual implications were surprising considering how much sex was in previous books in the series, but the lack of explicit sex was no detriment at all to my enjoyment of the romance. I found I loved Raleigh and Smudge all the more for the sweetness of their relationship. They're men who know what sex can give them while realizing the best things they can find in the company of another aren't the things found while bumping uglies in the dark.
Renaissance is the sweetest read I've read in a long time. I'm thoroughly delighted I chose to invest in it as soon as I saw it was available; I look forward to revisiting Slopy Bottom again in the future!
I was super happy to see this book show up on a Signal Boost Promotions list. I really enjoyed the previous installments, Resonance, 0.5 and Resistance, 1.0, (Review here.), and I knew that I wanted to read this one immediately because I expected it to be just as good.
I was not disappointed. I think I liked this one the best so far. The story is told with the same level of writing as the first two, and the various characters that we met previously, tie directly over into this one. I would definitely tell you to read the two previous installments before reading this one, since they aren’t long. I think it is important so that you know who everyone is. I love the residents of Slopy Bottom, and I’m sure you will as well.
In this latest installment, our focus shifts over to the character Smudge who we met in the previous installment, but didn’t get to know very well. If you read my review on the author’s previous installments, you might have seen that the name Smudge brought me flashbacks of a close friend named Smudge, so I was predisposed to love it. The story revolves around Smudge and the organist at the local church, who is also the local librarian, a young man named Raleigh. I can’t tell you much, because there is a lot in the blurb on this one. What I will say, is these are two young men with a lot of baggage. Watching them work through it, made it an entertaining read. When all was revealed, it explained a lot about both of them.
The story is well written and held my attention right up to the last page. I didn’t put it down once, which is a compliment. My one and only complaint was that the two men’s story isn’t really finished at the end of this current installment. It’s a HFN, not a HEA, and now I’m stuck waiting for the next installment. Please hurry that along Ms. Francis! I see she has several ideas ahead. I’m hoping for a story that includes Bruce the big bear who loves bacon… but we’ll have to see what she brings us. I personally can’t wait to see what is next.
I highly recommend this series if you’re looking for a sweet, miscommunication, enemies to friends sort of book. It is totally outside my normal dark reads, but I’m enjoying the series. Give it a try.
