Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book for review from the author. I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
This book starts off with a great dedication. Make sure that you don’t miss it – you may even see your name. It’s also written in the first person. Each chapter is named for the character that speaks to us.
Mia Lawrence and Oliver need to get to work but that doesn’t that stop them from loving each other. What a great way to start off a book. Rachel is Mia’s flat mate. There’s a new man in town and his name is Robert Breckt. He’s a man that knows how to use his “assets”. I’m looking forward to seeing what Claire has in store for me.
Mia and Oliver seem to be a couple that really love each other. One day Mia comes to visit Oliver at work and meets Mr. Breckt. He’s a man that can get anyone to do anything he wants. He’s a very interesting “villain” that I cannot think of him by his first name. This is when our mystery begins – strange things have started to occur around town.
One thing that makes it a great story to me is that I can’t figure it out. It has some romance in it but it’s not the main focus. But then this is one of the reasons that I have to keep turning the page – I need to figure out the mystery. I also have two actors that come to mind when I think of Mr. Breckt – Frank Langella and Colin Farrell. I’m a fan of the old vampire movies and I can picture Claire’s book made into one of them. I would buy a ticket to see how they interpreted her book.
One thing I think that makes Claire’s story a little different is that she has Mia acting like we might if we came across a person that isn’t all they seem to be. A lot of romances eventually have the heroine be accepting of people that are different from the norm. I found this story to be very realistic and believable. I do have to warn you that there is one scene that is very graphic and eating while reading may not be a great idea – let me just say that I’m glad that I didn’t have ketchup on my turkey burger.
I thoroughly enjoyed Mia’s story and was happy to see that Claire has a second book, Limerence II, coming out soon – Mia has me hooked. In the meantime if you still need a little push to get this book, stop by her site and watch the book trailer (http://www.clairecriley.com/limerence-trailer.html).
