Intro: I haven’t been reading much lately. I have been so busy and a bit book burned out. But I did manage to finish this one and I really liked it quite a bit. Enough so that I got the previous book out of the library.
Heroine: Jenna-I really liked Jenna. She was feisty and intelligent. I loved how realistic she was. She wasn’t super-human and she wasn’t meek. She was the middle road which seems the most real to me. I found her to be quite refreshing. I also loved the relationship Jenna had with William’s mother. It was lovely to see a heroine form a close relationship with a hero’s mother.
Hero: William-I did not find him to be very rogueish but I liked him nonetheless. He was definitely a unique hero. He was both jaded with and completely unaware of his privilege. He didn’t fit into any romance hero box I tried to put him in. He’s not a rake or a rogue and he’s privileged but he’s bored with it and he’s not a brooder. He defied explanation.
Chemistry: Jenna and William were adorable. I tend to lean towards angst in my preferences but I could not resist these two. They were sweeter and more light-hearted than I normally prefer but I did like them quite a bit.
Conclusion: I really enjoyed this book. Definitely enough that I want (need) to read more of Kelly Bowen’s books. I loved the lighter feel of the book even though it was tacking some heavy issues. I sometimes tend to drown myself in angsty books so this was a nice break from that.
Kelly Bowen grew up in Manitoba, Canada. She worked her way through her teenage years as a back country trail guide and ranch hand. She attended the University of Manitoba and earned a Master of Science degree in veterinary physiology and endocrinology.
But it was Kelly's infatuation with history and a weakness for a good love story that led her down the path of historical romance. When she is not writing, she seizes every opportunity to explore ruins and battlefields.
Currently, Kelly lives in Winnipeg with her husband and two boys, all of whom are wonderfully patient with the writing process. Except, that is, when they need a goalie for street hockey.
