My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Not the Marrying Kind, by Nicola Marsh
I thought I would take a break from how intense life can be, as I am sure many of you know, by reading fun fiction and just … letting tension slip away for a brief period while I escaped into a pleasurable side of life. Well, the tactic worked. I’m back and I must say I enjoyed the read. Not the usual comedy I am used to in light reading, but nevertheless, done with flair and panache, and obviously written by someone who knows the game.
Highlights: anyone who craves the look and feel of expensive, glittery shoes, whose mouth waters when thinking of caviar, scallops and shrimps washed down with very dry champagne, and dreams of being blinded by a two-carat princess-cut diamond on their ring finger, will want to read this book. Oh, did I mention the story would appeal to most females in the Western Hemisphere … and beyond?
The favorite character for me was Beck Blackwood. Not simply because of the obvious reasons, more because of the tenderness and vulnerability that comes through in Marsh’s portrayal of him. I found his character to be flawlessly depicted, and although he is your typical, run of the mill billionaire, there is a sweet soul to him, worth exploring. Way to go Nicola.
