(4 / 5) – Worth It!
I do love a quick and fun romance and if it’s set in Australia, even better! This was my first foray into Nicola Marsh’s writing and as a modern romance author she did not disappoint. About once or twice a year I go on a romance novel binge and Marsh has kicked off my fall 2022 binge. This fast, fun and lighthearted tale of a one night stand that turned into so much more was a joy to read. The characters were down to earth, decent human beings who happened upon each other and found joy in their interactions and eventually love.
Marsh does a great job of representation from point of views, to cultures, generations and even physical and emotional obstacles; she paints her characters with a humanity that is charming and endearing. Romance novels for me are usually about two things:
1) Do I like the characters?
2) Does the story keep me wanting to read?
I know, I don’t have the highest standards ever when it comes to romance, but Marsh created characters I liked, was rooting for and I wanted to find out how it all worked out in the end. She did her job as an author and I would definitely read more of her work.
This is a fun, quick and steamy modern romance that takes you to Australia. What do you have to lose?
