Kay and Nate dynamics in Clear as Day was a really great story but after reading hundreds of books with one too many zany/fun side characters I now realize how jaded I have become you can almost see the sequels coming and it just takes me right out of the story.
Clear as Day is different, Ms. James besides writing an involving tale between the two main characters also had me thinking about the lives of some of Nate and Kay's friends and what will happen in their future. So now of course I want the sequel.
At my age I have lost any real patience I had and I really hate reading books when I feel the story is not complete but good authors leave you yearning for more.
Read Clear as Day - trust me it pays off in the end.
I loved Nate - he was so, so patient (too patient), loving, funny, steadfast - just a perfect guy. I can't say I loved Kay - I really can't say I even liked her. She was conflicted and indecisive ALL THE TIME and I found this aspect of the book frustrating. She was overly protective of her mind and heart - although her body didn't seem to have a problem! Consider yourself forewarned - there is a lot of sex in this book which was not a problem for me, but may be for others who should not give it a bad rating because you didn't expect it!
The backdrop of the story - an annual summer vacation at a desert lake with a group of friends - was a wonderful bonus for me that I could really relate to - I spent several years boating on Lake Mead and the author's vividly descriptive and accurate writing about the landscape, the heat, the swimming and skiing, the campfires brought back great memories for me and others will enjoy reading about a place they may not have visited but can now see in their mind's eye.
Die hard romantics will find the quickie ending satisfying.
Another "gripe" with the books was that H/h and their friends are camping out at Lake Mojave in July. As far as I could tell, there was no air conditioning anywhere around. Since the average daytime temperature at in July at Lake Mojave is 111F and the average night temperature is around 82F, it didn't sound like much fun, no matter how much time they spent in the water. And as for the encounters below decks with just a fan....
This would be an OK beach or airplane read, and I'll keep an eye out for the author's next book.
