A Kiss to Build a Dream On, Katie Baldwin

A Kiss to Build a Dream On, Katie Baldwin

A Kiss to Build a Dream On (Saving Graces Fantasies Book 1) by [Baldwin, Katie]

Genre:  Romance, Humour

OK, I enjoyed this, but its a very light and sweet romance. Perfect for if you just want a quick, easy to read escape but if you’re looking for drama and depth you won’t find it here.

Bethany’s a sweet lead, librarian, good friend and fits the stereotype well. You just know she leads a conventional drama free life. She does have some tragedy in her past, but its not a big part of the story.
Aiden “ride the Aiden train”, the film star lead was another “nice” character. None of that rabble rousing, womanising, alchohol and drug filled rampages for him. He’s happy with a cup of tea….
I couldn’t help liking him but – he’s a hot celebrity, pursued (every now and then, less than I expected) by paparazzi in the story, and it made me wonder why he didn’t have bodyguards, how he could get away with wandering round town and eating in restaurants with Bethany without being besieged?
That worked for the story but kind of took him out of the ” Film star/Celebrity” league for me. Just didn’t really fit.
His ex was a nice piece of work, and I’d hoped for some sparky fireworks but no, simply a few damp squibs.

In the main, apart from the ex everybody is just…nice. Bethany and her work mates, Aiden, his staff and friends. If you want a sweet and cute romance, full of lovable characters, no surprises or dramatics this is perfect.
I read it, enjoyed it but it didn’t grab me by the throat, make it impossible to put down, have me wondering what would happen next. Somehow what was coming could be seen, and the only surprises for me were things like potential plots that I thought might come up but didn’t.
Stars: Three, a cute and sweet romance, but for me not a keeper.
