Risking It, A Romantic Comedy, Angela Quarles
I liked the sound of this but…though it wasn’t a bad read there wasn’t that magic spark that keeps me glued to the story.
Its well paced, original story-line but i just didn’t feel the magic, didn’t feel the sizzle between the characters, and there wasn’t have the tension I need in a romance, the conflict, the angst and agony.
Even when they weren’t getting along it was all so muted, and the whole reasons of misunderstanding felt OK at first, but got put forward so many times ( or so it seemed), that I wanted to say to them both Get over yourselves.
It did seem on both sides to be a real storm in a teacup theme, making so much out of what was a simple misunderstanding.
There are some steamy encounters between the two, and the premise of the road trip was fun and brought a few interesting moments, but for me its a read and forget book.
As ever though this is just my opinion, what I want in a story doesn’t reflect on what you want, so read a few more reviews and make up your own mind.
If you share a taste in reading with me you may feel the same, but if not this could be your perfect read.
Stars: Three, an OK read but lacked drama and feeling for me.
