The random hook-up Eden had at the beginning of the book serves to show her attitude towards dating and sex. She doesn’t expect a romantic fairytale. The name mishap with the guy in question was either a funny coincidence or a clever NCIS reference.
The first few times Kieran made an appearance I was a bit confused as to his role in this story. It is clear that he and Eden are attracted to each other, and her reasoning for turning him down makes sense within her own self-image and logic. However, I wondered how this would work once Eden got to know Max; would Kieran still play an active role or would he be dismissed to the background? And then BAM! Surprise!
The chemistry and attraction between Eden and Max are palpable, but Eden is reluctant to give into this. I like how the author explains the origins of her issues, and I think they will resonate on some level with many readers. I know it did with me. Max is also not as perfect as his Mr. Romance persona may appear. Combined, their backgrounds make for a challenging and interesting road to common ground.
The supporting characters are a wonderful addition in their variety and their different roles in the story. I especially enjoyed the scenes with Moby Duck – he’s hilarious!
As this is the first book of the Masters of Love series, it does a great job of pulling the reader in. Leisa Rayven has a way of making complex characters with troubled backgrounds likeable, even loveable. I found myself liking Max and his various personas very much. His chivalrous and romantic gestures actually reminded me quite a bit of my own boyfriend… I look forward to the next books in this series!
If we found Ms Rayven's remarkably eloquent vocabulary fun and totally fitting for this contemporary romantic comedy, the innovative plot left us with our mouths agape! Ooh boy, and the cadence in her writing style couldn't possibly have been better. The narrative flow streams forth everything we look for in a good story; laugh out loud scenarios, antsy emotional moments and a titillating build-up to passionate steaminess. She's also cannily conveyed her characters moods and traits making each and everyone of them special. As per usual in all her books and this one is of no exception, the dialogue is quintessential. Well. . .we're both suckers for it, we can never seem to get enough and here Leisa made sure our banter-addiction was sated.
“What an unexpected surprise to see you here tonight. Don’t take this as the corny line it seems to be, but do you come here often?”
More often than not we go into our reads blind. Having a good idea of the genre is a must for us, but how exciting it is to have that element of surprise! In this case, it was delivered in such a way that we can honestly say we were given the WOW EFFECT underlined and highlighted! Seeing as we'd like the same thing to happen to you, we're going to do our utmost to make this review as spoiler free as possible. Nonetheless, what we can do is give you our opinion regarding two of the most delightful protagonists we've meet in a long time, and whose story is told in first person present tense.
“One day you’ll meet a guy who will change your mind about men, and when that happens I’m going to laugh, and gloat, and probably make a laughy-gloaty YouTube video to commemorate the occasion.”
Although Eden Tate is by no means your typical heroine, it's difficult not to like her. In fact, we became smitten with this strong stubborn young woman early on in the story. Saying that, we're absolutely sure this comment would peeve her off greatly since she's not one to go out of her way to impress others. She’s very comfortable in her own skin, not in the slightest bit pretentious, doesn't give a toss about fashion or being seen in the right places, and has no unrealistic expectations of the opposite sex. Her happy single and fancy free attitude was exactly what drew her to us. All she's interested in is getting the recognition she thinks she deserves from her not so nice boss. She loves her job, hates the assignments she's ordered to do and like most journalists, waiting for that big break.
“You have twenty-four hours to secure an interview, or I’m telling payroll you don’t work here anymore. Got it?”
We have to admit that we had our suspicions about one of the character's goings on early on in the book. We even thought the author was playing a mind game with us because it all seemed a tad easy to suss out. Ahh, but you see, nothing is what it seems. Leisa was cleverly fuelling our imagination and testing our patience by holding back a bomb that dropped in the most unlikely of places and we freaking well loved it!. And what is more, being on red alert alongside Eden wasn't enough. First confusion kicked in and then the realisation left us all dumbfounded. This whole scenario and many more to come were so vividly illustrated, we could see them playing out in our heads.
“...Eyes speak truths mouths refuse to, and liars always find a reason to glance away.”
Mister Romance! Now here's a guy who literally charmed the pants off us. . . no pun intended! And not only can he multitask (oops, a rarity in the male species), but also changes his multifaceted persona like a chameleon changes its colours. Sounds confusing, doesn't it? Imagine the man of your dreams whose role-playing skills satisfy your innermost desires! Of course, to make things more interesting, strings are attached. Max Riley’s got secrets. Secrets which could cause a scandal or three! And Eden’s dead set on finding out every little one of them. What she wasn't banking on was getting to know the real man beneath his façade. What we weren't banking on was him! Max is complicated, gorgeous, mysterious and in part, we blame him for us not being able to put the book down.
“Out of all the ladies I know, I find you the most ... interesting.”
“I’m not interesting at all. I’m a simple creature with simple needs.”
This full-length novel merits reiterating how much we adored it. The storyline per se, is excellently executed, creative and super sexy. The characters; secondary ones included, are stunning. We have no intentions of letting on whose turn it is next in the follow-up because we'd really love you to take a chance on Mister Romance. Ms Rayven, bravo!
