This book is HOT. It is HOT because it is so, so incredibly intelligent!
The language. The LANGUAGE!! Emma Calin's work is amusing, diverse and insightful, with razor-sharp dialogue to sweep you along. She's brash, bold, witty, emotionally intelligent, and perhaps most importantly, she's smart. She uses words to imperceptibly cast an invisible net over your brain and heart to capture and pull you in. The delicious, descriptive language and imagery can only come from a fine poet at her best.
In a romance novel you expect to see flailing arms, legs and thinly veiled private parts, with all the accompanying pawings, slobberings, steam risings and quasi-porn-film dialog. Much too easy. In this novel, sex is treated so tenderly, lovingly and naturally, the term "romance novel" seems too limiting. This is a high quality suspense novel interwoven with an intriguing love story! It is quite intelligently treated and utterly unpredictable.
Now don't get me wrong. The sensuality here made me feel things in places I didn't know I still had places. #oh!hellotherelibido This is the magic of it. To me, the blatant over-use of raw sex and pornish dialog is always a turn-off...very comical, in fact...and thoroughly unenjoyable.
Anna Leyton is as human as an author can make her. A real woman with authentic feelings, foibles, doubts and fears. A woman with courage, with a strong moral code, a woman capable of giving and receiving great love. In fact, all of the characters in this story are completely fleshed out and quite believable.
The author does a great job of fore-and-aft-shadowing and pacing, keeping the reader completely engrossed and unwilling to set it aside, even to eat. I highly recommend you read it, not only for the entertainment, but for the lasting impact this author will have on your mind. You will want to seek out everything she writes. She is a shining example of the quintessential sassy, smart and educated woman we all so dearly admire. And you will remember Anna Leyton.
