Sing For Me Trisha Grace
Sing For Me Trisha Grace
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
This is one for readers who want “clean” romance – where the sex isn’t graphic and explicit, but the romance takes more precedence. I like sex in books, but for me the story has to come first so I’m happy to read books like this too. Some readers don’t want sex scenes at all, so its really useful to have this description added for them by authors.
So – the story was good, I really liked both Chloe and Christopher, though the reasons they went from such a short but intense relationship where they planned a future together, to one where they were estranged for so long felt a little unreal. I’d have expected either of them to try to breach the gap but then of course we wouldn’t have the story!! That’s always a balance, getting the characters to where the story needs them to be realistically. When we learned more about the spilt and the reasons Chloe left I understood and could see her hurt. It was one more thing on top of the huge shock she’s just had, but for ages I kept wondering “ what on earth happened?”
Christopher had been a huge success and then fallen into the trap that so many do, and when he and Chloe met again after so many years I was just so anxious for them to talk, to see if they could get past what happened. I didn’t like Chloe’s boyfriend, he wasn’t awful, but I couldn’t feel the connection between them. It seemed one of those relationships that I think of as “drifting “ where each just doesn’t really put in much effort but they just go along with the flow. That meant I would be happy to see that end and her reconnect with Christopher – there was a huge amount of barriers and actions before that could happen though.
Overall I really enjoyed this as a one off read, but though there was plenty of drama, lots of action, multiple plots that joined at the end, none of it really felt it had huge depth and the solutions were very quick and convenient. I do need my characters to suffer a bit, to get heartbreak, pain, angst…Hard person aren’t I ? 😉 That’s the reason this is four not five stars, I just felt there could have been more made of some of the plots – i.e. Rebecca….and everything was so neatly happy at the end. I don’t like the “bad” guys to get a good end, even if we do see there are reasons why they acted that way. Hey, its fiction, and I like people who are not nice to get their just desserts, not understanding and forgiveness!
there are some great characters here. a good story with lots of action and sub plots but for me it needed a bit more depth. As ever though not everyone wants that and if you’re looking for a clean romance, great characters that feel real and a story that’s easy to follow and not too intense, this could be perfect for you.
Stars: Four, a good one off read for me.
