After the first sighting, he’s fascinated.
After the first smile, he’s infatuated.
By the first kiss, he’s obsessed.
Nolan sees Chloe through a window of a bakery in downtown Manhattan. At first sight, something about her calls to a piece of him he thought was lost. Without thinking, he begins watching her, and when the moment presents itself, he strikes, claiming Chloe for himself. For a man who is used to getting what he wants Nolan wont let anyone or anything stand in his way.
I just love Aurora Rose! Let me explain why…
Justified may not have a very original storyline, but it is written in an extraordinary way! These 100 and something pages could have easily been more than 300. She could have included so many details, like their first date, his dates in general with her, them spending time with their parents and so many more. She could have. Keyword: could.
But she didn’t. Because (I assume here) she wanted it to be a light and fast read. She didn’t want to dwell on things, she just kept it simple.
Light. Fast. Sexy and Sinful as Hell. Read.
And that’s what Justified is.
I don’t normally like the book, when it’s missing many details. But Justified is the only exemption. Why?
Because despite it being a fast read, you knew where you were, where your characters stood. You knew the situation. You didn’t just magically appear where you are. Everything is explained, maybe not in the first line in the next section -where things may be pushed forward in the timeline- but they are explained. You always knew where you stood with Justified, which for me it justifies the fast pace.
If you can deliver such a fast pace book and tell your story and you simply want to do it, why not do it then?
Everyone has their opinions and I’m not judging anyone here. Everyone is welcome to speak their minds. But, my right blue eye caught a line or two from some reviews on Amazon that said characters were not well developed. I completely disagree. Yes, it was fast and yes you had to stay focused so that you don’t get lost, but not well developed? No-No. Our alpha man was the same crazy-obsessed with Chloe-overprotective-sexy man throughout the book. Chloe was the same sweetheart who sometimes spoke her mind to her overbearing sexy man and sometimes not. The characters were wonderful the way they were. No, they didn’t change in a dramatic fashion, but they didn’t need to anyway and in fact, not everyone changes in a relationship. Sometimes, we fit with someone so well that everything is alright without changing. So, I simply conclude that they didn’t get the book and that it wasn’t a good fit for them. Because it was fast.
~ I loved Justified and I would certainly reread it!
~ This is a special book, with a different kind of writing. Which means it’s not everyone who just likes Romance and Erotica, etc.
~ It has a really fast pace, as you can imagine (It’s only 100 pages, after all)
~ It’s Funny and Sexy as Hell!! (I repeat this!!)
~ I love Aurora Rose!
~ Good for her for trying something this short!
~ I wouldn’t change a thing regarding the characters!
~ Did I mention it’s intriguing and suspenseful, too????????? #WhoIsAfterChloe
So, 4.5 Fabulous Stars go to Justified!!
“You look stunning.” I step towards her, running my index finger down her bare side. “I don’t know how I’m going to make it through the evening without killing every man who looks at you.” That’s not a lie, I think, tracing the edge of her breast.
“You didn’t pick this, did you?” she asks. I lift my eyes to meet hers and shake my head. “I can change.”
“No. You look...” I shake my head, trying to think of a way to describe her. “You look absolutely beautiful.”
