Main Characters: Angelina & Blade
Ironically, it all starts with a popular book about BDSM. When Angelina Jameson steps into her boss’s office armed with an acid article about ‘Billionaires, BDSM and Blah-blah-blah’, she thinks her career will take off. But her career aspirations drop into second place when she finds herself face to face with her nemesis.
Blade Spencer is the new editor-in-chief of Unabridged—the literary magazine where his ex-lover Angelina works. For three years, since she fled small town Jamestown without a word of explanation, they haven’t heard from one another. Now, when they meet again, the past and all the feelings they once had between them come rushing back, making them realize their love has never died. But can they reconcile their new circumstances and the changes that have occurred during the three years they were apart? Neither is the person the other used to know.
Then there is the faceless shadow who hunts them from the dark, driven by obsession and greed…
*This book contains strong language and explicit descriptions of sex.
|3 Rediscovered Love Stars
Unabridged is the first book I have read by this author, I was given this book in exchange for an honest review so here goes….
This book is witty and at times quite funny, but to be honest it’s an intellectual humour that some people just may not get.
I liked Angelina and Blade they were a cute couple but all the hard work of them becoming a couple never came. I liked that they had history but because of that they had half a chapter to get together and for the rest of the book they had a break neck speed romance.
The sex is sexy and I did feel the chemistry between Angelina and Blade.
This book has a bit of everything including the obligatory psycho in Blades ex wife Alison. I’m honestly not sure what makes her flip because until she loses the plot she’s only mentioned once or twice!!!
The book makes some very obvious digs at 50 Shades of Grey and the kinky book revolution that has resulted from Mr Grey’s success.
The digs are vague in that no names are used but to be honest the whole thing feels like a bit of a faux pas on the author’s part.
Perhaps I’m wrong and it wasn’t 50 shades of Grey that was being scorned but I’d be surprised.
I enjoyed this book but I felt like the love story was slightly out of order and the natural progression wasn’t quite right.
Overall Angelina and Blade are a sweet couple that I do honestly feel were destined to be together so this one gets 3 stars from me.
Not long ago, to my surprised delight, somebody described me as being “charming, witty, supremely talented and dangerously fun”. I don’t know how accurate this description is, but I’m curious if the readers will find some of these features reflected in my writing. Speaking of my writing, I must mention that living in Romania – which is considered a projection of the enigmatic and much controversial Shambala, the supposed spiritual center of the Earth – is quite a source of inspiration. I have a native inclination to the occult and paranormal, to mystery and philosophy. The woman in me is a romantic and sensual creature. All these considered, I could describe my writing as being captivating, intriguing, sensual in places and, on the whole, a surreal experience. Enjoy!
