RFG Recommends: Catching London by MV Ellis

24 Jan


I really, really enjoyed the heck out of this book, a definite 4 star read for me.

I loved how the author built the relationship part of the love story separately from the sexual chemistry. Very modern language and the whole rock star thing aside, it really was at its core a classic love story. There were no aliens or shifters or even evil, scheming, murderous exes. The conflict was all internal and about their feelings for each other.

I also liked that although he was a ROCK STAR (in big bold letters) the conflict wasn’t mainly because of his money or lifestyle- it was about London’s fear of being hurt/rejection.

I loved both the hero and heroine even though there were parts of the book where I wanted to throttle them both. Hats off to the author for being able to show them as flawed, human and annoying and then being able to pull them back into likeable/ loveable characters- I’ve read books where characters go too far into unlikeable and nothing they do ever brings them back.

I like how the dialogue was realistic and modern and fit with the story. My only negative comment about the dialogue is that sometimes there was a little too much (for my personal taste) of the natch, dayum and cray-cray and other very modern MTV type words going on, but I’m almost 40 and not a rock star so that could just be me being old-fashioned. All in all would recommend this book and author.
