Review: And Ruth does it again!
Now, those of you who know me know that I’m not one for straight romance. I feel there’s not enough in it for my taste. I need mystery and action, something that gets the blood flowing even when I’m reading a book.
But Ruth … I don’t know how she does it, but that woman can suck me into a book in one chapter.
Ruth has a way of bringing her characters to life, characters that feel real feelings and making you feel for and with them.
And although the plot wasn’t completely original, I loved how it came about. Before you even realize it, you’re rooting for Lana and Jesse like nobody’s business.
Ruth Langan knows how to make a reader believe in her characters and their stories. She can make you laugh and cry and get angry right along with her characters.
It’s no wonder why Langan is one of my favourite authors.
