BETWEEN THE LINES
Wild Horse Press
Rating: 4 Cups
Tory is an attorney specializing in family law. In her determination to get through school and start her career, she has let her love life fall to the wayside. She has a sort of boyfriend who has just dumped her.
Aaron is a bestselling novelist of suspense and thriller stories. He has no family and no roots. He travels constantly to research his books.
Tory’s cousin Mel is a literary agent. Her most important client is researching a book about a female New York lawyer so she asks Tory to help him out. As busy as Tory is, she always has time for her family, but is unprepared for Aaron’s impact. They only have two weeks together, so they have to make the most of it.
This is a very well written romance with appealing characters. Both have some emotional baggage and a reluctance to get into a short-term relationship adding interest to their encounters. Tory’s friends make wonderful commentary, and her brother Matt’s appearance emphasizes Aaron’s lack of family. The loves scenes are well done and made me like the characters even more. The only problem I had with the story is with the dialogue. Tory and her friends made much of Aaron’s English accent and Aaron did not understand some of Tory’s colloquialisms, but Tory and her friends sounded more like they were from London than New York. For example vodka jellies here in New York are Jello shots. It would have been better not to mention the language differences at all than to mention them and ignore them. Overall, I really enjoyed this quick and entertaining read.
