I am a true fan of Loure' Bussey's work, having read all of her books. She has become one of my most favorite authors in this genre'. After completing this book in one day, I must say she has elevated to another level in her gift of writing. I know everyone has their own opinion of what they expect when reading books, I gather that when reading reviews on amazon. We can have high expectations on these authors, and when they don't meet up to the readers point the reviews can sometimes become uncomfortable for me to even read. So my review of this book is from my point of view of how it impacted me personally.
"Images of Ecstasy" is a one day read, the author waste no time getting the reader into the plot, the characters, both major and minor ones are throughly indentified, the plot provides much dialogue between the heroine and hero (Braxton Steele and Shay Hilton) and the contribution of the minor characters. The book offers a sense of reality, I mean often some stories makes readers seem its too far fetched to happen in real life, well the author surely found an extremely developed plot, because all while I was reading, I saw this as happening for real. I laughed so hard at some of the drama events that take place in this story, especially between the minor characters of Rakim (Shay's brother), Christina (Shay's best friend) and Janet (Rakim's wife). The major characters, Shay and Braxton..WOW, I enjoyed how these two meet for the first time, how much they know about each other and reading how the author develops this relationship. It becomes obvious that they are soul-mates. Boy, did I love how Braxton treated Shay..uhm he was good ladies, a sweetheart and a risk-taker I must say. But you got to read the book to find out more about Braxton Steele, Mr. District Attorney, you won't be disappointed.
Loure', this is your best work I have read and proud that you allowed the divine force to move through you as you wrote this one. I can't wait to see what songs you write from this book.
Readers of romance, check this book out, I believe you will enjoy this, its full of intimacy, murder, guess-who-done-it, suspense, lots of laughs, surprises, a one-day-read and just a good book period. Thanks Loure' for acknowledging me in this book, I am humbled by that gesture but it has indeed been a pleasure to share in all of your endeavors.
