REVIEW: A while ago I read Blossom in Winter by Melanie Martins and really enjoyed it. When I saw the next book in the series called Lured Into Love was soon to be released, I contacted Melanie and requested to be one of her reviewers. I’ve already expressed an interest in the next two books due out later this year. I had to!
I’ll tell you right off there are some explicit sex scenes in her books. The author tells you that right up front. I don’t think she wants to shock anyone. I don’t find the scenes to be crude. I think in her books they are there for a purpose. If you can’t tolerate that, then these books won’t be for you. I think they are an added dimension to the tale she weaves. We are reading about a young woman named Petra who falls deeply in love with her godfather Alex. For her age, I think she is quite mature and I don’t doubt the relationship although, there are many who do.
Her characters are believable and well rounded. Her writing style is a little different and I find it easy to follow. I felt the heartache, love and angst of the characters. When I picked up this book after reading Blossom in Winter so long ago, I fell right back into the story line. She didn’t constantly remind you of the previous plot and who everyone was but, the author somehow made it so easy to remember everything and everyone.
I can’t wait to continue the love story of Petra and Alex! I am a little jealous of Petra. I’ve fallen head over heals in love with Alex. Yum. What’s not to love?
I received a copy of this book from the author for a fair and honest review. Thank you for the experience Melanie Martins!
SYNOPSIS: “It’s a nasty kind of love. The kind you can’t escape from even if you want to.”
Petra should’ve known better. But her heart has always beaten for the one man that she can’t have: her beloved godfather, Alexander Van Dieren.
And despite the firm disapproval from her mother, the rising politician and activist, Tess Hagen, Petra is determined to take her life into her own hands and fight for him, no matter the price.
But she can only do so if Alexander will go just as far for her. So after waking up from her coma, she asked him one question. He gave her one answer. And from there, nothing will ever be the same…
This book is for mature audiences.
