If you love L.A. Pepper, Elizabeth Stevens, River Alder, or Katie Knight, you will love this book!
Hidden among the titles in my Kindle Unlimited library, I came across this sweet sexy read.
One thing I truly appreciate about Amy’s writing is how she tells the story. Where most authors would make this sex for the sake of sex, Amy hasn’t. The characters are vibrant and real. The relationship between Jessie and each person is unique and heartfelt. There’s history here, among everyone. Just little things that are woven in here and there about each of them and where they’ve gone in life before coming together, here at home, for the summer.
The first encounter happens by a spark that fanned into a wildfire, it was as passionate as it was unexpected, and as all-consuming as it was short-lived. But it’s the consequences of that encounter that give our leading lady pause.
Jessie truly loves her brother, hating how her love life has affected him, and the relationship he once had with a once-best friend, in the past. She doesn’t want to risk his pain again for the sake of her pleasure, and that is a surprising depth to find in a book of this quick-hit genre. I’m truly impressed by this author’s ability to sculpt this story so smoothly and richly.
There are author names we all know in the romance world—Dorothy Garlock, JoAnna Lindsey, DiAnna Steele. I’ve read multiple titles from each of them, novels well into the 90K+ word length, and I can tell you this: The way Amy weaves this story and brings the characters and conflict to life, bringing it from a low whisper to a rich roar before it decrescendos into the final notes, puts them to shame.
I honestly don’t think any of those authors has been able to capture the emotion and range quite like Amy has. This is a short story that is on par with L.A. Pepper.
