Lynn Spencer - All About Romance

I'm one of the publishers of All About Romance. I love reading romance, as well as mysteries, fantasy, history and historical fiction, and all kinds of other things. Staying on Goodreads for now but trying this out in case I decide to switch.

Review - A Dangerous Solace

A Dangerous Solace - Lucy Ellis

I can't believe I stuck with this one all the way to the end. Here's the basic plot - Ava the heroine hooked up with Italian hottie Gianluca Benedetti 6 years ago at a wedding. Upon encountering him again, all kinds of conflicting emotions come rushing back for her.  So far, it seems pretty understandable.

 

However, the story pretty much consists of bickering, blustering by Gianluca (who comes from a very influential family and let us never forget that), and self-doubt/jumping to conclusions by Ava. It's not 100% awful, but after the first couple of chapters, things do get pretty tiresome.
