I guess you could say that Hamilton is one of my guilty pleasure authors. She's the exception to my no erotica rule and it's solely based on the fact that the characters and the worlds she creates are unlike any other in their uniqueness and creativity. She's a master at what she writes and every single book I've read from her captures my imagination completely and holds me long after I've read the last page and closed the book. She's one of the few authors whose books invade even my dreams.
My favorite thing about Fiona is her golden heart. Those she loves, she loves hard. Ex-husbands, ex-step daughters….everyone. She genuinely gives a crap about their lives. Even when, by all rights she could walk away completely. She’s that ex that becomes the friend that made you fall in love with her to begin with.
After three ex-husbands, two successful novels, and one disastrous book she’d rather forget ever having written, Fiona Fields has hit a wall. Days once filled with critics gushing over her latest masterpiece have given way to endless hours spent lying on her living room floor in Lakeview Valley, the tiny North Carolina mountain town of her youth, and staring at her ceiling.
"Matt Jackson, Catcher" is the second in the "Bottom of the Ninth" series. I recently reviewed "Dan Alexander, Pitcher" and was elated to continue the series. I actually included the first book in my list of favorite romances so I guess you could say I went into reading this one with some pretty high expectations. Fortunately, I was not disappointed. If anything, I was blown off my feet.
Romance, for me, is another way that I can live vicariously through another. That's why I read anything. Even non-fic. I want to open my eyes as another. See worlds and people in a different light. Literature, in all it's forms, helps people build a world view of events or cultures.
As I wrote Dan’s story, he struck me as a nice guy from a small town, unpretentious, and unchanged by his new found wealth. In some ways, he and Holly were opposite, which is, perhaps, what attracted Dan to Holly.
Sexy Alert! This book is so hot it'll smolder and burn down your bookshelf! This couples chemistry is lava. It's straight gasoline and matches! Jolie really knows how to kick romance novel butt! Alongside being one hot romance novel, this book also addresses some pretty serious issues. Especially body insecurity and eating disorders. Kudos to Jolie for masterfully navigating these grave issues.
