Lovegame,  Tracy Wolff

Genre: Romance Romance,

I was really surprised by this book – I adore Tracey’s writing style and everything of hers I’ve read so far has been 4 – 5 stars. This though? Well, though I restarted a couple of times thinking maybe i just wasn’t in the right mood, thought perhaps I’d missed something integral to the story I just couldn’t get in to it. After struggling really hard to get to 40% I abandoned it.

I didn’t really feel connected to either Ian or Veronica, didn’t seem to be able to get a sense of what type of person they were – the characters are for me usually a really strong point in Tracey’s novels, and I get drawn in to them and their problems very quickly, so I just didn’t expect that.

There were some very tense and heated sex scenes, but they felt kind of distant in that I couldn’t feel they were truly what each of them wanted to do. It was as if they were having sex purely through lust, and intentions other than romance and sensuality, as if they did it because if what was going on rather than because they just couldn’t keep their hands off each other.

I felt the romance, the characters issues, plus the mystery to be unwrapped connected very tenuously, rather than meshing into one must-read story, and for me this was a surprising fail.

I still adore Tracey’s stories, just that this one didn’t cut it for me. Of course as always that’s a personal view and there are others who are blown away by this story. That’s how it goes, and what keeps novels interesting 🙂

 

Stars: two –one that just didn’t work for me.

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.
