Sam's Reading: A Work in Progress

New to this...

One and Only

One and Only - Jenny Holiday I think this is the kind of book that "a sexy romp" is the phrase for. The beginning... Whew. Clunky. Half of it felt like Canadian geography. In the end though, this opposites attract couple had me rooting for them. I enjoyed how intimacy was built and how the heroine really instigating bigger moments for the couple. What was a little odd about this book, though, was it was like reading all the stereotypically romantic things you'd do with a boyfriend in high school. In a sense that made it fun, but it also meant these two were not in their everyday. Some things I liked about that.

I appreciate Holiday's vocabulary. Truly. I never felt like I was reading the same old tired lines. There's one thing there at the end I'd change, by essentially cutting out the end because that situation is tired, it's silly, and I like when women make the grand gesture. ... Instead we end up with a cheese factor of approximately 11. Edit, people, edit.

All in all, this rambling is meant to say this is another solid romance by this author. A sexy romp, if you will.
