From the moment I started this story, I had a hard time putting it down. The tension is thick throughout - sexual tension between Ion and Celeste and the tension of knowing the secret Celeste is hiding and wondering how Ion will react when he finds out the truth. I loved both their characters. Celeste is wonderfully portrayed as an extremely bright woman who still harbours her old teenage insecurities. She's funny, smart, bright, but still geeky and awkward and all these qualities together make for a realistic portrayal of a woman who struggled as a teenager to find her niche. Ion is equally engaging as a determined, somewhat reclusive writer, idealizing his teenage crush into a series of books that have made him wealthy and able to use that wealth to live as he wishes. The love scenes between them are intense and emotional. The city of Paris makes for a beautiful backdrop to the story and is part of it's charm. Celeste's family also plays a key role in the plot and dynamics of the novel, adding poignant moments as Celeste must make choices for her future.
For a debut novel, this story has everything I look for in a contemporary romance - real and engaging characters, smart witty dialogue, a mix of humour and tension, steamy love scenes and a couple that deserve a happy ending. 5 stars!
There is also a second story at the end of Ion and Celeste's involving Ion's sister Zoraya. Here is a review of that story as well:
Zero Day Exploit
What a fabulous story! If you are looking for a sexy, romantic, angsty and emotional read you will find it in this tale of love in the corporate world. Zoraya (aka Zero) was a wonderful character as a computer programmer who marches to the beat of her own drum, being forced to assimilate into the corporate vision her company has hired Evan to enforce. Her feelings for him are complicated from the beginning, having spent one night with him as a stranger to her, then discovering he's the one who is going to be making her work life hell. But while Zero is still able to remain true to herself despite the cosmetic outer changes, Evan is the one who really shows that appearances can be deceiving. His character draws the reader's empathy as the hotshot corporate executive who can pay lip service with the best of them but hides behind this mask to prevent his true loneliness from getting out. Zero makes Evan want to share things he's never shared with anyone, and the emotional effect of that is to alternately scare him away and draw him in. The sexual tension between them is at the heart of the story from the first time they meet and the resulting love scenes are steamy and emotional. Once I started reading this story I had a hard time putting it down! I'm looking forward to more of this series. 5 stars!
A beautiful, heated read with all of the characters pivotal, who all shine in their own light. A Second Chance At Paris by Cole McCade was just a phenomenally sensational start to the Bayou's End series.
"Then if I can't keep you," he stroked callused fingers down her thigh and lowered himself to bring heat to heat, hardness nudging intimately against her as he lifted her into him. "Then let me have as much of you as I can before you go."
I found myself highlighting passages because they were so beautifully written, I wanted to be able to go back and re-read them quickly. The similes were absolutely picturesque. I could SEE the moment and FEEL the characters. I wanted to read more just to have the pictures painted in my head. To me, a sign of a well written book.
“As he brought her high once more, sweet, bright rhythm carrying her to that gasping pinnacle, she trembled fragile and iridescent and beautiful as a dragonfly’s wing, shining in the light of his sun”
The heroine is Mary Celeste London Haverford. Pretty sure the author taps into an inner geek girl on a regular basis. I’m not sure where he hides her, but in this book, he nails the female Astrophysicist persona so well. I loved Celeste’s running inner dialog with herself. LOVED all those geeky references: Star Wars, Firefly, and Wizard of Oz. Loved that her heart is so big and overwhelmed, even when she is trying to do the right thing. (Truth..I may have considered throwing my kindle at her a few times just because she was so stubborn about her relationship with Ion).
Back to Ion…sooo worth the read just to meet him. Last quote to make you go..ahhhh…..
Ion: “All that matters is that I miss my starry-eyed daydreamer. I’ve been looking up at the same sky every night---and I’ll be waiting Forever if I have to. You know where……I’ll say everything I wanted to say all those years ago.”
You are going to want to check out the author, Cole McCade. I promise, you will enjoy the read. Be sure to keep reading after the story for Ion’s baby sister Zero and Evan’s meet. Very much looking forward to more great things from this author.
