I haven t read any other books by this author and after reading this one provided by netgalley I have to wander what exactly I ve been doing with my lifeYes I really really enjoyed this one It hits so many perfect notes for me that it s almost hard to explain The writing flows so well that I really wish authors could write like this It s not particularly grammatically correct but she writes in the same style as her protagonists inner monologues which is rather a clever way of sing third person POV but giving first person insight of both hero and heroine The book switches often between the hero and heroine POV but not once did I feel lost It just felt totally natural and for some reason I found that the style meant I felt I was really there I could not only see the bluebells but smell them and I could not only see the River Thames but I could feel the grass on the banks next to it and hear the ducks Uacking I Don T Get I don t get feeling very often nfortunatelyThe story concentrates 90% on the hero and heroine but that s not to say that secondary characters don t get a look in and in fact their backstories for the purposes of moving the story along are told concisely but completely and for the purposes of moving the story along are told concisely but completely and of all they all feel real not the The Messy Accident (An ABDL Story) usual one dimensional insipid tea swilling friends that overpopulate HRs I very rarely read a HR where the story and characterization is strong enough that I almost forget what the hero and heroine actually look like This was one of thoseI do have one minor complaint Well it s not really a complaint really but it did bother me an eensy weensy little bit Despite being sexually innocent the heroine seemsite ninhibited after only a couple of rounds with the hero in the sack in a way I found difficult to believe Although to be fair the heroine could be clearly an enthusiastic amateur and I did actually appreciate the author s not falling into the heavy breasts and wet in her secret place type descriptions which I hate So the heroine is fabulous a completely refreshing change She is stridently honest a breath of fresh air and says what she thinks The hero is a sad tragic case but not in an irritating poor me waySo loved it 5 stars A keeper and I m now going to raid this author s backlist Reviewed at Bitten By Paranormal RomanceRafe is haunted by his past The guilt he harbors from decisions made long ago has turned his heart to ice He feels he no longer deserves to love or be.
