Kasie is all about her work, and having been let down by her beau, she's not in the best frame of mind. She's bothered by Michael, who doesn't behave like the hired help he's supposed to represent. Michael and Kasie must overcome their prejudices to meet on common ground.
I liked the sexual tension that zings between Micheal and Kasie. Kiru Taye excels at putting into words, sensual awareness between man and woman. I also enjoyed the flow of the story, which takes place in a compressed period of time. Also loved the descriptions of Micheal. Taye certainly created a delicious character in Michael Ede.
I could have lived without Michael's treatment of Kasie in one particular scene, but it certainly helped to throw Kasie off her high horse and back in the realm of reality.
OVERALL COMMENTS: At eighty-something pages, A Valentine Challenge makes for a short, but spicy read. I finished it in one sitting and enjoyed travelling to another hemisphere. I'd love to see more of the African setting and can't wait to pick up the other two stories in this series.
COVER NOTE: The silky fabric on the bottom half of the cover speaks to the title of the book and makes me think of chocolate. Fitting, I think.
The main characters Michael and Kassie have amazing chemistry; it leaps off the pages. Michael has been hurt by a woman he thought loved him. She ruined his military career and he needs to work through his pain and bitterness. While he recovers professionally he cannot seem to recover emotionally. Kassie walks into his life and he is tested by his friends and his own guilt. Kassie tempts him to listen to his heart and not his head while working through her own family drama of legacy and class, not to mention getting dumped during the Valentine's Day season. I enjoyed the push and pull between these two.
The story moves at a face pace however it maintains the needed ingredients for a good love story. I wished the book had been longer so we could get a better glimpse into how the relationship develops and more of the family issues. I hope we have that chance in the rest of the series.
There were a few noteworthy lines that left me swooning. My favorite is "Don't you get it? I'd give up everything I own to have you for the rest of my life". YES!
I am ready for the next book.......
It's about a man, Michael, who was set up by his two friends to make Kasie fall in love with him within a week. The catch is Michael is a wealthy millionaire many times over and can't reveal any of that to Kasie while she's in town. Kasie isn't necessary Ms. Sweet; come to think of it, she's more like an Ice Queen.
The tension between Kasie and Michael is evident at the very beginning and you see how these two people battle their own demons while submitting to each other. What really impressed me about the story was it was sensual and sweet. It wasn't pornographic and I would be hard-pressed to put it as erotica but it is definitely steamy and spicy!
I applaud the author for writing such a wonderful romance novella and I would gladly purchase more of her works.
Move over real life! If you are busy but love romance novels, this is your introduction to bliss!
I love me rich men! I fell for Michael and was ready to fight for him but Kasie is also loveable and believable!
Thanks to Kiru for the bit about not wanting to move to Lagos! I live in Ibadan and while I enjoy the occasional visit to Lagos, I dont want to live there!
He is also such a Sir Galahad, stepping in and saving her from her mean sister. And did I mention I like rich men?
I have read and re-read and lurve this book.
I reckon, the money spent on this is less than the enjoyment you will derive & no calories too!!!
