“I love you, Torin Kane. I will love you for all eternity, and I want nothing more than to have a chance to prove it to you, by your side, night after glorious night.” – Bailey Hamilton
And, it’s finally here!!! So many days without a review, and I finally found the time to sit down and get back to work!
And what better way to do it than with a book I’ve been dying to write about!
Bailey Hamilton is in a terrible spot – both emotionally and career-wise. Not only has her husband dumped her, damaging her self-esteem as a woman greatly, but she also can’t seem to get out of her writer’s block to finish her new book. As a result, Torin Kane, her main character, is bound to wait a looong time until he’s called forth to woo all the lady-readers – and female co-stars his writer decides to pair him up with. Unless something drastic happens – something that will bring writer and character closer than ever…
Let me get this straight: there’s no way you’re either a writer or a reader, and haven’t wished, at least once in your life, that a fictional character was real. So there’s no way I wouldn’t like this particular story. I mean, come on, writer creates the perfect male specimen on page, and then gets to meet him personally? I would be so psyched!
Not to mention Bailey and Torin were adorable. A perfect little combo, full of hotness and humor – and insecurities. Damn, they were both so insecure! It was like watching a couple constantly cheering each other on. It would have been annoying if it wasn’t for the craaaaazy chemistry between those two.
The book had many things to offer, though apart from the romance. It had humor, and action – both of them dark, by the way, yet sprinkled with pink glitter on top of all the dark stuff. How the heck did Pierson manage to do it, I have no idea. But she did it in a completely functional way and that’s saying something!
The characters were all very interesting, too. No, I’m not talking about the main ones only. There were about a handful of secondary characters who were heaps fun and amazing in their own way, and they ended up pulling their own weight in the end, no matter how they initially started up, and on which side.
I dare say Peg Pierson had me pleasantly surprised, and thoroughly satisfied!
