Cover Art: I liked the colors of the story’s cover, but the models are not my favorite. They appear mismatched. They are pretty, but I wished the two looked at each other with passion. Their placement on the cover was not bad. I loved the use of color on this page. I think that the blue and green colors were eye pleasing.
Main Characters: Patrick and Taran are owners of competing bars in the small town of Rose Falls. I liked the men a lot and I think that they had real chemistry with each other. Their relationship started with harmless flirting and turned into something deeper.
Secondary Characters: The minor characters provide Patrick and Taran with support throughout the story even though most of the story focuses on them.
Plot: This was rather straightforward. Two rival bar owners find love with each other.
Writing Style: The narrative was well done. The author made it easy to get into the minds of her characters. The narrative alternates between Patrick and Taran. I think that this worked very well. Another thing that I liked about the writing was the dialogue which was not stilted. It was comedic at times. Patrick and Taran did a lot of flirting with each other. The reader can easily feel the passion on the page, as the writer is very visual with her words.
Conflict/Climax: I don’t think that there was a large amount of conflict in this story. It is my opinion that the source of any conflict arises from the main characters’ pasts. I think that the author deal with the conflict in a satisfying way.
Conclusion: I found to be a nice read. The characters were well formed and interesting. The passion was palpable and the chemistry from the main characters was off the charts.
For all these reasons, I assign this story an 8 out of ten stars!
