Book Review #23: Paper Marriage Proposition

Author: Red Garnier

Genre: Romance, Women’s fiction

Language: English

Publisher: Silhouette Books

Date of Publication: January 4, 2011

No. of pages: 192

Synopsis: Two souls fed by revenge come together to rediscover a love that can outlast their hatred. Can love be enough?

Review: Well usually a women’s fiction have the same underlying theme of lust at first sight fueled by shadows of a haunted past and mistrust which blooms into romance. For a change, there is a slight difference in this one; lust at first sight is of course there, but both the characters Bethany Lewis and Landon Gage have come together in a relationship with a similar intent – hatred and revenge for one man.

The story line is quite simple considering the genre of the book and the character development has been consistent throughout the book. Introduction of the Gage brothers hints at continuation of the series in future which is a clever way of asking the readers to stay in touch with the author and the series. The cover image may seem provocative but the content is PG-rated and didn’t cause my ears to fall off while I was sneaking few minutes at work. The language is pretty straight-forward and serves a dual purpose – keeps the readers’ interest intact and helps the plot and characters in moving forward.

My opinion: Excellent for light reading when your brain is befuddled with the heavy stuff.

My rating: 4 out of 5

    You always give chicklit more marks 😀

    1. Its not about marks. The cleopatra has a good narrative but the language makes it difficult to follow through. The chick lit is good for a light read because everything matched
