The Year We Fell Down - Book OneBy Sarina Bowen
Rated 4 Stars
I have always loved Romance novels but have learned over the years to be able to suspend my disbelief and skip past a lot of badly written icky sex scenes to get to the heart of the story. So I am finding this new to me author refreshing. Don't take this the wrong way. I am not slamming the Romance genre its self but it's just like any other genre there are very good ones and very bad ones and thousands of in-between ones. And since I read a lot of romance novels it only stands to reason that I run into my fair share of wall bangers. But my point is that when I find an author who tells a great story, writes really well and touches my heart that's a real red letter day in my reading world. This is one of those books and Sarina Bowen is an authors I will certainly follow.
I really liked both characters. Especially Corey who faced the new life she was unexpectedly dealt with common sense, courage and a sense of humor. She only whined a little bit but that only made her more human in my eyes. She deserved more whines than she took.
Hartley, well I had a little trouble with him. In some ways he was a little too good to be true and in other ways he spent a lot of time with his head up
As for as Hartley's snooty girl friend, well I had to cut her more slack than she deserved because I have a Granddaughter named Stacia and it's not all that common a name.
