Nt men seem sadly underrepresented in romances and as a lifelong anglophile this hero sounded right up my More Love Ajky proverbial alley Only Tom doesn t seem especially smart in fact he s not even especially kind He s a drunk and often than not a total jackass3 So not only did I not much care for either Tom or Honor as separate characters but I m not sure I at anyoint bought their love for each other Despite the book s seemingly excessive length the transition from vaguely tense semi strangers to allegedly in love at the end felt oddly abrupt and unearned4 One thing I used to adore about KH s books were the lovably vivid well defined minor characters In this series though they seem to cross that admittedly thin line from uirky to irksome and unlikableWe get a few witty lines and charming insights that remind me of why I first fell in love with Higgans but unfortunately there was a whole lot that reminded me of why I ve since fallen OUT of love with her Those who liked The Best Man a lot are likely to enjoy this one than I did the tone and characters of this Looking At Parasaurolophus particular series just seem not to work for me at all 45 STARS I am in love with this series The second book in the Blue Heron series was amazing nothing short of beautiful This was Honor s story Faith s older sister The man in uestion Sexy troubled and uber seductive Tom Barlow I do love a British accent This was an arranged marriage turned true love story and I loved it Honor was always the uieter reserved and dependable sister in the Holland clan Her long time crush and best friend Brogan doesn t reciprocate her feelings He sees her as a dependable friends with benefits type But Honor needs to get serious At the age of 35 her chances for motherhood are starting to wane Enter Tom Barlow who needs a green card to stay in the US and be closer to his sort of stepson Charlie What starts as a business arrangement soon turns into something much meaningful much beautiful But no one wants to say anything and both Honor and Tom have insecurities that threaten to capsize the relationship The best thing was they were feeling the exact same thing Ah miscommunicationThis was again a very moving and well written story The emotion and angst between Honor and Tom was veryalpable KH writes fade to black sex I m not usually a Reluctant Hero The Dunamis Covenant Book 1 proponent of that I do like the steam and I feel it strengthens the connection between the main characters Unless of course the book is written so well that the lack of steam doesn t translate into lack of spice and sexual tension Withoignant storytelling and memorable characters fuelled by intense emotion the steam becomes secondary unnecessary Even with fade to black the intensity is strong and the richness apparent What we get is the build up the foreplay before sex But damn with the foreplay so hot I can only imagine what a sex scene written by this author would be like I loved Tom and Honor together they *were an incredibly strong and sweet couple after all the crap Honor endured thanks to * an incredibly strong and sweet couple after all the crap Honor endured thanks to bitch of a best friend she deserved a chance at true love from a man worthy of giving and getting itCan t wait for the third book in this series honestly I m so glad I found this author Beautiful story and sexy sweet characters 45 Eggs with bifocals cheering madly starsThe second book in Kristan Higgins The Blue Heron series is an hilarious romantic and utterly thrilling read The story starts with THE day Honor Grace Holland turned thirty five she did what she always did on her birthday She got a Pap smearAnd I was hooked I immediately had a sense of exactly who this heroine was and what type of life she d been living or not living so far In 20 words Kristan Higgins hooked me in and made sure I was fully invested in the main character I dont know how many authors can do that with such skill and efficiency Her ability to weave her characters through my imagination contiinued to astound me as she told the story of two eople who both felt they were running
out of time I wasn t convinced that the hero of our story was actually of time I wasn t convinced that the hero of our story was actually love with Honor but truly I was enjoying the story and the banter and the characters so much that I don t think I cared that much I m not sure I ve ever felt that way before But I also realised that this is a story about many different types of love and love affairs emphasising that not every love needs to be a sledgehammer of lust and obsession This story describes many couples each with a very different way of expressing their love for one another and each with their own ersonal motivations I think In The Shadow Of The Volcano perhaps Honor and Tom had a chemistry that had to burn slowly in order to break through their individual walls and illusions And finally they found a love that suited them both The heroine waserhaps a little submissive than I usually like but she was also incredibly brave and very kind This was not at all how I Goethe Vor Und W Hrend Des Tasso pictured her in the first book so I was soleased to discover her depth in this story I loved so many things about this bookI loved ALL the characters view spoiler well apart from Dana Brogan Mitchell and Janice I Truly HATED Danaand kept discovering new layers of hate as the story John Saturnalls Feast progressed Brogan was an idiot in every scene He was so clueless and selfish and I hated how he used Honor over and over again Mitchell was scum And Janice was abhorenceersonified but totally believable as the unattached grandmother with a warped sense if obligation view spoiler hide spoile.
