Kindle Romance: Heavy Issues by Elle Aycart

Kindle Romance

Title     - Heavy Issues
Author - Elle Aycart
Stars    - 4.5

Heavy Issues:
Cole is not into relationships. With his brother's engagement sending local females into a frenzy he finds himself in a nightmare. However, when he discovers Christine is going to take on a gigolo to have expert sex, he decides enough is enough.

Christine knows the overbearing man will force her limits, and after struggling with her self-confidence, she isn't ready. Too bad he won't take no for an answer.

Cole is resolved to tear down her shield yet leave his own intact. When Christy finally recognizes she wants more, she doesn’t know whether to walk away, or break down his stupid protective wall and risk her heart.

Heavy Issues (Bowen, #2)

The sexual content of Heavy Issues might just have your pulse racing. It is quite scorching. Although Cole and Christine have an agreement for a sexual relationship, he unquestionably forms an emotional bond with her, so that she feels cherished and attractive. This in itself is quite a turn on.

Heavy Issues is simply a story of a couple in an embryonic relationship. There is no elaborate interweaving or incidents to the plot; it is about the developing rapport between the central characters. Sometimes, simple is best.

Author - Dana Taylor
Stars    - 4

Ain't Love Grand:
Persephone Jones wants to prevent bulldozers from annihilating the herb garden she planted on neighbouring land. However, Jason Brooks is constructing a new house.

Persephone and Jason could hardly be more dissimilar. He is a defence attorney with loads of money; she, the illegitimate daughter of a flower child, selling herbal remedies from her small shop.

Despite her facade, Persephone doesn't necessarily follow hippie moralities. For her, sex signifies that marriage is a possibility. Jason feels otherwise, but as to be expected in this appealing account of contrary fascination, love will out.

Ain't Love Grand leaves you with a feel-good factor. The dialogue is realistic, the setting authentic. and emotions are tickled - you might even smile. A book you will probably want to read more than once.

Sinclair believes she understands what she’s letting herself into when her homosexual friend, Jesse, persuades her to pretend to be his girlfriend during his parent's anniversary party. The problem is, she meets Reed, Jesse's older brother, and ends up getting more than she expects.

Reed believes his future is a forgone conclusion until he meets Sinclair. The primitive tension he feels is difficult to disregard. As he watches their subterfuge, he finds he needs to unearth more than their entertaining cover-up.

Tangled Beauty is rather unexpected. This is not just a frothy story about Sinclair feigning a relationship with her homosexual, best friend Jesse, and instead tumbling in love with his brother. There is mystery, suspense, and a surprise ending.

An interesting read.

Kindle Romance: Lost to You by AL Jackson

Kindle Romance

Title - Lost to You
Author - AL Jackson
Stars - 4.5

Lost to You:
Going to New York City has always been a dream of Elizabeth’s. Everything she does is to make it there.

Coached to assume responsibility for his father's law firm, studying at Columbia University is an expected step for Christian.

Neither of them are looking for more from life up to the point when they meet at a café table after being thrown together as study partners.

Christian fancies Elizabeth from the start, but she knows better than to give into the powerful chemistry that flows between them. Predictably, she finds it hard to stay away.

The central characters of ‘Lost To You’ are likeable. Christian sizzles with sex appeal, Elizabeth is tough and unfettered. It becomes evident from the start that there is great magnetism between them, yet for some reason, there is a hesitancy to take the liaison further. ‘Lost To You’ has conflict, friction, and romantic assertions of love and desire.

‘Lost To You’ is an interesting book from beginning to the end, demonstrating that no matter what happens, there is always a chance of finding happiness. This is a good read.

Kindle Romance: Burn by Dawn Steele

Kindle Romance

Title - Burn
Author - Dawn Steele
Stars - 3

Abby has a history she does not intend to disclose to anyone, not even striking 21-year-old Devon.
When she ends in his doorway on a rainy night, penniless, losing blood and with burn marks on her hands, Devon takes her in. He nurtures, clothes and feeds her in a turn of events that changes their lives forever.

However, Devon, an artist during the day, is a hustler by night to make ends meet. His punters are assorted but very rich. A number of them are cruel, as shown by the scars on his torso.

Abby is carried into Devon's capricious world, but a disaster wallops them that neither could have forecast.

The central characters of Burn are shadowy and keep you turning the pages. They have mysteries but form an attachment with a rewarding relationship.

Burn is not about a strong heroine. Abby is a damaged girl on the run. The big problem is the plot seems to end in the middle of the story, presumably to encourage us to buy the next book.

There are a few editing issues, and some readers might be distracted by the unusual narration of 3rd person present tense. This is not a generally accepted format for romance - having said that, the meaning of ‘novel’ is something new. It might catch on.
