I met Ms Norinne through a literary blog site group and so decided to read one of her books. It just so happened that she had recently released this one, Trying Sophie; and the rest ...as they say; is history!! It was a no-brainer for me, a steamy (according to other reviews) romance, with indepth characters and of course, the clincher for me...RUGBY!! .
It has been said, and I have to reiterate, Rebecca certainly knows how to write and flesh out her characters. Each and everyone of the people in this story will become your friends, your relatives and neighbours, they each have their own personalities and agendas, just as everyone within your life. You will love, hate (for a while) and misunderstand their personalities and their actions yet as the story unfolds, you will become surprised at how some situations reveal a differing picture to the first one that you formed.
Since moving to Ireland from her native America, Rebecca has obviously become an avid Rugby fan and has studied the game in some depth to make her story truly genuine and appealing to other fans of this amazing and noble sport. The writer's descriptions of Dublin and surrounding areas will enchant you, and either make you feel at home, if you are familiar with the area; or make you book the next flight to visit if not!
This is not a speedy, rush through, meeting, (or rather re-meeting),- pursuit,- sex and HEA ending. Ms Norinne fleshes out not only her characters but entire situations and events making this a deep, 'draw you in' read. You will feel the pain, confusion and love of these people as if you are a part of their lives.Read more ›
I really needn't have fretted because Rebecca employed her sterling writing and story-telling capabilities and utilised them and her extensive knowledge of rugby to the fullest, delivering one of the best sports-romance books I've had the pleasure of reading ever, and probably the best EVER sports related book set in the UK or Ireland.
This book has everything you could possibly want in a terrific read. It starts in the past, where our young bespectacled heroine Sophie is not only dealing with huge changes geographically, having moved from America to Dublin; upheaval in her home life, dealing with spiteful rumours and gossip but she is also suffering emotionally at the hands of ruthless bully boy rugby player Declan. Rebecca sets the scene wonderfully in these first few chapters, so that it is in perfect sync to the future. It gives the reader insight into how our actions, reactions and words can have repercussions in the future, not only on the person doing and saying the hurtful things but most certainly on the person that they are aimed at. It also indicates that everything is not always so clear cut and black and white, there are hidden layers to people, secrets they don't want revealed and walls they construct in order to hide them from view.
The story really gains momentum when grown up Sophie and Declan are pushed together and sparks fly, sexually and in personality.Read more ›
Declan is a pro Rugby player, a player with the ladies too. He is respected and loved for his talents on the pitch. He has earned the nickname of "The Machine" for his other talents! He is single and doesn't date. Wam bam, thank you ma'am is more his style.
Sophie is a renowned travel blogger. She lives in the US and has strong family ties in Ireland, her mother being Irish. She left Ireland when she was eight years old and has only stopped in passing to see her grandparents. Eighteen years later and she is back to help her grandparents due to her grandad's recent health scare.
The story sets off very nicely as soon as Sophie lands at the airport. She is impressed by her escort and oggles him openly, that is until he introduces himself. Declan! Her childhood nemesis. Oh dear! The bad memories come flooding back but all her preparations in case she ever meets him again goes out the window. Declan is hoping that she wouldn't remember but he is not so lucky. They come to a tentative agreement of being friends. Forgive and forget? More like forgive but not forget!
It's interesting to find out why Declan behaved the way he did when they were children. He hasn't changed much either, it's how he copes when not in control and nervous. Sophie is now quite confident and as determined as she is, she can't seem to ignore her attraction to him. As for Declan, he has been smitten forever. The chemistry between them is off the charts and the sex is sizzling hot. The fact that Sophie's visit has to come to an end is never far off their minds. They start trusting each other and start to open up about the past, then everything is turned upside down, just like that.Read more ›
