Outback Affair Annie Seaton.

 

Outback Affair: An Affair Novel (Entangled Indulgence)

Outback Affair Annie Seaton.

I love a romance, so dived into this. Its a very straightforward story, I found I could predict coming events almost as I read, so there wasn’t anything that really gripped me with excitement, but it was a fun read. For those who love simple easy to read romances, like the book equivalent of the Hallmark afternoon films Him Indoors loves. ( He sits there with tears in his eyes while I’m snorting at him, with tears for a different reason! “You’ve no heart” he says laughing at me. He loved Little House on the Prairie too – he used to phone a local pub owner when it finished, and they’d compare how they felt…the other guy would never admit to anyone else his secret, kept his tough guy image up but I knew! ) I do have a heart, that’s why I love romances, but I need strong highs and lows to get it racing, and feel the emotions that move me to tears and for me this book didn’t deliver those. Maybe its because I read such a lot that I need something about the norm? Outback Affair is what it says though – made for the Indulgence market, a shortish read for those moments when you just want to slip away into a gentle romance with a HEA. Of course there’s limits to what you can include with length restrictions.
The basic storyline is simple, the characters fun and believable, and I enjoyed the Outback journey details and the snippets of humour that crept in ( the glove compartment that was like Mary Poppins bag – though with vastly different contents!). There were some sensual, spicy sex scenes, but they were very well written, nothing anyone would find offensive and fitted the story and people perfectly.
ARC supplied by publisher.
Stars: well, for many readers I’m sure this would be a five, its certainly well written and deserving on that score but for me personally, the enjoyment I got its a three and half for the reasons I’ve outlined above. That may be just what makes it a five for you though 🙂
