There's one thing you guys should know about these series. And that thing is, that even if you okay me have reached the dreaded point in which romance novels leave you somewhat nauseated or just tired of the whole romance schumzle (Yeah, I made it up), you'll most likely end up gobbling this series straight up!
Don't believe it?
Well, I didn't either.
Yes, this a Grinch approved series! (Yes, I'm the Grinch. I'm the bookish Grinch -_-)
For someone who has started dreading reading romance novels, reading this series, takes me back to the old days in which I had so much fun and pleasure reading.
This story was intense, addictive and just plain sweet.
The author knows how to avoid tricky paths (well done) and in the end I loved this so much, that I could have given it a higher rating.
So, why didn´t I?
You know those stories in which the words form a melody of their own?
Patricia Mckillip and...you know... Patricia Mckillip. Well, the five stars are for them. *cough*
Okay, moving on... this book: The characters!
I wish I could insert a thousand exclamation marks. That's how much I liked them and their dynamics.
Their characterization, the way Damien and Jess (Jasmine) meet _ capital R in the Romance department _, the way their relationship evolves, everything was so intense. So good.
Also, I think I've developed a fetiche -_-
Cuff Links, man, Damien, my God, this guy knows how to remove a simple cuff link making it "read" as if he's removing so much more. Hot.
Honestly, you have to read it!
Thing is, Damien and Jess couldn't be more perfect for each other. They are a really otp.
They're cute, and sweet _ and it never enters into the cheesy domain _ and their chemistry is of the charts. What more can a reader ask?
Oh, right, the secondary characters...
Well, you'll be happy to know that they're just as great, as the main couple.
You have characters whose stories you've already read. Others that you can't wait to sink your teeth into them _ for instance Tristan's story _ and when you reach the end of the book, you just feel like re-reading the whole thing over again.
Oh, and the aunt?
Amazing! Tante Collete, you rock! May you live many more years, because things will be extremely boring without your matchmaking schemes.
So, what are you waiting for to start reading this?
Or do it like I did, and buy it through Kobo, because the paperback is a little pricey.
