Scandal,  Sasha Morgan

Scandal,  Sasha Morgan
Scandal: A sexy, scandalous page-turner by [Morgan, Sasha]

Genre: General Fiction (Adult) , Romance

I can’t see any other adult fiction by Sasha so assume this is a debut novel, and what a great start.
That cover though – is that meant to be Sharon and Gary’s hot tub? In view of the Hall. And what Scandal does the title refer to, there isn’t anything really salacious…

I really enjoyed this read, gentle humour from the story and characters without that OTT forced feeling so many chic-lits have. When I see “ you will die laughing/ funniest story you will read this year” my heart sinks and I know they’re not novels for me. This one the story is the focus, and any humour just comes naturally.

I love the characters, Megan and Tobias of course, but Gary and Tracy and how they settle in to the village, very understandable issues with a huge change of environment, and how their former friends reacted is sadly very real. Then there’s Tobias friends Seamus and Dylan, stable girl Flora, Finnula and Dermot from the pub, Nick the vet, and Tobias family, brother Sebastian, mum Beatrice and wonderful aunt starchy Celia. They all play small parts of the overall story and lead to some fun sub plots along the way.

I loved seeing how Tobias transformed the estate from a money pit, sucking up all funds and leaving them in dire straights, to renovating and selling parts and making others areas income producing.
Its the kind of thing we do see here in the UK from big ancestral homes, here in rural Norfolk I can think of several who have done similar things. I do like my novels to be realistic, so I can feel that events could really happen that way.

I would have liked a little more drama of the down kind, a few hiccups to Megan and Tobias romance, there were tiny bumps but I love to wallow in the bit where it all goes wrong, and then its so much sweeter when the HEA arrives, but here we didn’t quite reach that depth of emotion.
And smacked wrist for Dylan, his condom use needs to be much, much stricter given his propensity for taking up every opportunity.

Stars: 4, a really fun read, full of very genuine characters and events.

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.
