Editorial Reviews

Review

"Your heart will break, then soar, then break again for Bobby and Lilly. I fell crazily in love with these characters." - Blushing Babes Book Reviews 

"The writing is sublime, I really can't compare it to anyone or anything, it is such a tightly woven story paced to absolute perfection." - The Book Sirens 

"When you read some 150+ books a year, plots tend to get predictable. I thought I had this one nailed...Well, this book surprised me because I thought that's what I was going to get but I got so much more." - The Reading Escapade Book Blog

Absolutely breathtakingly beautiful, heartbreakingly sad and salaciously sexy!! You will feel elation, as well as devastation! You have been warned....

Going into Swelter by Nina G. Jones, I had no idea what to expect. This is my first experience reading her work. She totally floored me. This chick is insanely talented. The multitude of emotions the book evoked within me is ridiculous. For that reason alone, it deserves a million stars. I sobbed and swooned repeatedly. At one point, I was sick to my stomach, heart hurting with tears flowing. The amount of love and anguish I felt, I thought my heart would burst right out of my chest. I had to read this painstakingly slow, because I needed to absorb and feel every word.

Your heart will break, then soar, then break again for Bobby and Lilly.
I fell crazily in love with these characters. Their desperation and adoration for one another is overwhelming to say the least. They are both going through life as ghosts, one running and the other unfeeling. Their journey is something I will never forget...

This is my first book from a different era. I found it to be rather refreshing. I was instantaneously transported to 1957. A time where men ruled the world, women had no say, different races were frowned upon and sex was something not to be discussed. The depiction of the era was so vivid, I was able to see everything, from the clothes to the style of furniture. I swear, I could almost hear the old songs playing on the the record machine.

This woman knows how to write about sex!! There were some parts that were so hot, I had to put my kindle down and take a breath. This isn't smut. This is pure INTIMACY. I have never had an author translate sexual experiences in the manner of which Nina has done.

"How long have you loved me?"
"Since before I even knew what it was"

4.5 stars

I'm a sucker for story lines that touch on subjects that are considered more 'taboo'. One girl and 2 brothers... and she doesn't know if she married the right brother?? Uhh... yes! I couldn't sign up for this one quick enough.

I know that cheating and these sort of 'love triangle' stories are a trigger for some, but don't let this one pass you by. It follows Lilly as she tries to decide if she should follow her heart or her head. On paper, Rory is the better choice. He is ambitious, reliable and cares about Lilly. But. Bobby is the wildcard in this game of love. He ignites something in Lilly that you can't ignore. The problem? He's the brother of the man that Lilly is set to marry. Two brothers. Complete opposites. If Lilly chooses Bobby, she has no idea what her future has in store for her. But... choosing Rory... that is the best bet for a secure life.

"I'm not settling for pieces of you anymore. I want all of you."

I loved everything about this novel, even the time frame it took place in. Nina tells a tale of a girl who makes a sacrifice for her future. She goes with the easy choice and ignores what her heart tells her. What she didn't expect is for Bobby to come back in her life digging up old secrets and forcing her to face what her heart has been feeling all along. What do you do when nothing is 'really' wrong, but it doesn't feel right?

Think you have it all figured out? That just isn't Nina G. Jones' way. You'll learn that nothing is what it seems and there's just no pretending the heart doesn't want what it wants. True love doesn't ever really go away.

If you don't like love triangles or non traditional HEA's then step away from the book. If you don't mind venturing outside of the box every once in a while, then please read this book because it deserves to be read. It is a tragic tale of second chance love set in the fifties during a hot summer in Wisconsin, USA.

Lilly grew up spending summers with neighbours Bobby and Rory; carefree and playful, they were a close threesome who had no idea what life was about to throw their way.

Lilly and Rory were always expected to marry, they were both the same age and Rory was the safe bet, with a solid future ahead and not shy of taking on the responsibilities of marriage.

Bobby was the more spontaneous and fun loving brother, but watching the girl that he loved marry his beloved sibling broke him, so he left to join the forces. With the Korean war now over, and no sign of Bobby's return, Lilly and Rory presume him to be dead.

Lilly has known something is not right in her marriage for a long time now, but expectations forced her to go ahead with the wedding and so she is trying to be a good wife to Rory, despite the lack of passion in their relationship. Rory sensing her distance, often lashes out at her.

When Bobby turns up at their doorstep after 7 years of no contact, Lilly is thrown into turmoil and the guilt and torn loyalties are once again brought to the surface.

In my simplistic mind, Lilly should have never gotten married to Rory in the first place, but considering the era that the book was set in, I know that it wouldn't have been that simple.

Despite the story going in a direction that I didn't necessarily want it to go, I still loved reading this story.
