➦I really enjoyed this first installment of the Love Conquers None duet by Kilby Blades. Having never read anything by this author before, I didn’t quite know what to expect. In all honestly, I thought this was going to be a pretty light and fast paced read. What I got instead was a rather in-depth and well-developed relationship description between two complex characters.
➦It’s no secret that I have low patience when it comes to staying invested in a story but this book kept me reading. I won’t say that I was glued to it but I was committed to finishing it. I might have thought it was a standalone. lol
➦These two main characters are in their 30s and extremely committed to their careers. They are both successful at work but are struggling to find a lover for a no strings attached relationship. After crossing paths they immediately feel the spark and realize they both want the same thing in life. They agree on a casual relationship they can end at any time, which can be dissolved at any time with a use of a word SNAPDRAGON.
➦So there I am sitting through the whole book waiting for that god damn word to be spoken by one of them. They know it’s coming, the reader knows it’s coming – it’s just inevitable. Anyway. Even though I did enjoy the book, I can’t say I fell in love with the hero and that, for me, is important. He is a complete gentleman and has control over everything and that kind of annoyed me. lol I wanted him to flip out about something at least once. 😀 Overall, a good read with enjoyable characters!
