  • Torn

    I finally returned to Whiskey Sharp and the wonderful characters that surround the place. On this visit, Beau and Cora who are two very strong and vibrant characters, renew their acquaintance and find themselves embarking on a delightful romance. The relationship is strong and full of flirty fun, especially since Cora is a feisty woman full of exuberance, and the chemistry and passion between these two are full of electricity and heat. That’s not to say that the relationship is all fun and games because there are past personal issues involving family that really add depth to the story and a more fulfilling perception of these characters and their personalities. The story is fast paced and cover quite a bit of time so while the relationship starts off quick readers get the full effect of the workings of their relationship and how it progressed to the happily ever after with lots of witty and fun events that really makes the reader feel as if they are there with Beau, Cora and all their friends. There was never a dull or slow moment to be found and readers get enjoy a romance that is heartwarming, fun, sexy and spontaneous. For me personally, I have to say that Torn is being added to my favorites list, I really enjoyed Cora and Beau’s story as it made me smile a lot throughout the story and I felt as if I really got to know them and what their lives were like, especially the family dynamic that added such ‘drama’ and to the story and in Beau’s case, tugged at the heart. Of course, it is not surprising, that I loved the story as Lauren Dane is the author of this charming series full of character, romance, and friendship that make readers feel good as they read it.

  • great characters

    (minor spoilers ahead, maybe, I don’t know – details aren’t in the blurb but I think they are told pretty early on) I started this series here (no surprise!) so I came into it with no preconceived notion of the characters or the author’s writing. And I really enjoyed myself. Beau and Cora together are cute and sexy and pretty much melodrama free. But that doesn’t apply to the rest of their lives. Cora has spent the last who-knows-how-many years being at her mom’s beck & call and she’s done. She’s ready to stay in one place and create a life for herself, something that fulfills her and isn’t just being minder to her diva mother. And the timing is perfect as it brings her back in time to connect with Beau again. Beau was raised in cult as the son of its leader. He got out when his dad started doing things that Beau didn’t agree with and worked with the authorities … which sent the others on the run. He’s managed to make a good life for himself and was a very successful model before becoming a chef. He’s in Seattle spending time with friends and is surprised to see Cora again. The connection between the two is instantaneous and works for me. They get along very well and make for a believable (and steamy) couple. I also like the bond between the two of them and their friends. They have created a support group from themselves that is quite awesome and those interactions are fabulous to see. There are some weaker moments – mainly Cora & her mom and Beau & his past. While Beau’s does have a bit more resolution by the end, there is still a little bit of an open-ended feel to it. Maybe Dane plans on it being a tie-in to a future book? It definitely feels like it could lead to more. And Cora & her mom definitely didn’t have the resolution that some will feel they need. Cora does stand up for herself and works to make the situation the best it can be, but her mom is just not very likable. Reading it you’re not sure why everyone is OK with her attitude and the way she treats people, especially family. They maneuver her well and there is a subtle addressing of things, but I think that it isn’t going to be enough for some readers. Overall, as my first book by Dane, I found it to be a good read – enjoyable characters all around and a hot romance. I couldn’t ask for more in a summer read. **Review given honestly and freely after receipt of an advanced copy. This opinion is completely my own and was not influenced in any way.**
