A real feel good simple romance here 🙂 I love those, I’d just been reading some dark fantasy and needed something light and loving to counteract the deep emotions I was feeling. Gwyn and Gareth did just that. Gwynneth had been badly let down when her ex left days after she’d had their twins, leaving her with three young children. She’d rarely dated in the four years since then not wanting to give her kids a procession of men through their lives. When she’s at the local theatre one Sunday afternoon sketching a scene for a surprise present for her best friend, she’s amazed to see film star Gareth in the box with her. He steamrollers her into having coffee with him, and from there they start going out “just as friends” Gwynneth insists but Gareth manages to make it more – so much more, slowly wearing down her defences. What he hasn’t and can’t tell her is the real reason he’s in her town, thousands of miles away from his home in England. Of course the truth comes out at a most inopportune moment leaving Gwynneth feeling betrayed and Gareth having to work hard to win back her trust. Can he do it though? Will she just let him go for her family sake despite the love they both feel?

 

It’s a well told story, with surprises all the way and playing on our emotions. I understood Gwyn’s need to protect her family, and also Gareth’s determination not to let go what he felt they could have between them there were some really humorous scenes tucked away in between the drama, when the kids were involved “ mummy, are you and Gareth going to kiss?” The story takes place over a short time period, about two weeks, but there’s a lot packed in. As well as Gwyn and Gareth we meet a few of Gwyn’s friends, Gareth’s cousin Sean, and a couple more people Gareth knows so quite a small cast but that suits the short time span.

 

 

 

Well written and edited, it’s priced at £2.06 for 243 pages on kindle so good value.

 

Stars: good solid four, a great book for traditional romance lovers who want the HEA.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
