Excellent! She is truly a gifted and skilled writer/storyteller. *This* is what romance fiction novels should be about. She is and has been my #1 favorite romance fiction author for a while. Some of the other romance fiction authors should take a few lessons. Truly.
Unforgettable is her newest and best novel to date. I waited forever for this book to be published. It has now become part of my romance fiction collection. I have all of her books. Buy it, rent it, borrow it and you will not be disappointed. I sometimes think that Ms. Ford does not get the same exposure as the Francis Ray/Brenda Jackson/Rochelle Alers group, but Bette Ford's work is FAR superior on EVERY level and I have been reading this genre for over 10 years.
Where Ms. Ford is an excellent storyteller, I am not, but here it goes:
"Unforgettable" is the story of Gavin and Anna. Bette Ford follows a similar storyline as in "After Dark" (ANOTHER EXCELLENT NOVEL) where a seemingly 'regular' woman falls for a superstar professional athlete. Ms. Ford is a gifted enough writer to lend each story a unique and believable storyline even though each of the two is based on a similar theme.
From onset, you would think having the male protagonist be a professional athlete would not work, "that's not my thing," but I promise you it works. Ms. Ford added just enough dimensions to the Gavin character and his family to give him true depth (for a fiction romance). Anna is believable and has depth as well. Their families are believable and necessary backdrops to the stories in that they provide believable forces and influences for the characters to interact with during the story. Excellent storyline, dialogue, anticipation, hot love scenes, overprotective siblings and add in a little family drama and ambiguity and you have a great Sunday afternoon read. I read quite a lot and I read this in one sitting.
No cheesy underdeveloped, psuedo-action/suspense/mysteries here. Just storytelling at its best. She DOES not disappoint.
