2007's Top Three Books for Contemporary Romance
Title: All or Nothing
Author: Claire Cross
All or Nothing is an all around fantastic book. It has everything you could ask for in a romance. It has a very entertaining cast of characters. It makes you laugh. It makes you cry. When you read a romance, you are looking to experience a wide range of emotions and Cross delivers. Jen is a recovering cancer patient and Zack is a trouble-maker and goof-off trying to improve himself. Their journey and growth through the story is a delight to read. Cross excels at intermingling witty and poignant prose. Don’t miss out on this one.
Title: The Winter Lodge
Author: Susan Wiggs
I read The Winter Lodge before reading the prequel, but this did not detract from my enjoyment of the story. If you don’t know, I will fill you in… I absolutely love, love, love childhood love stories. I don’t know what it is about them, but they are my favorite. On top of that, have the kids meet at camp and just forget-about-it. Oh, and if you want a tortured hero, Rourke Mcknight is the man for you. It takes a long time for this couple to finally come together but it is so worth the wait.
Title: Hot Wheels and High Heels
Author: Jane Graves
I have already reviewed this book which you can read here.
Title: Catch a Mate
Author: Gena Showalter
I would like to include the book Catch a Mate as an honorable mention. This was a really fun book to read. The cast of characters was very fun. Once you get past all the mental lusting in the first part of the book, Showalter's talent really shines through. Marcus is the perfect match for cynical Jillian and I just loved the dynamics between the two. A bonus is the secondary love story that was just so endearing.
