tall, plump or more
Robyn Douglass and Erik Richards have been fast friends ever since they
met as pre-teens at a family campground. A return trip to the
same campground years later soon turns into a steamy sojourn when the
rains come pouring down and trap the two friends in their tent.
But can Robyn and Erik live with the
change in their relationship once the sun returns from behind the clouds?
worked for me:
The prologue was wonderful; I really could hear the two pre-teens
talking "at" each other.
The love scenes were very
sensual, but tastefully done.
Size-wise Robyn was definitely
well-rounded, but the author leaves it up to the reader to decide just how
abundant her curves are.
What didn't work for me:
Being the talkative, pushy kinda gal I am, I couldn't really get into
Robyn or Erik's heads as far as how they came to let their new romance
I know, I know.
There really are twenty-five year old virgins in the world. But it always
surprises me to find one in a non-inspirational contemporary novel.
I love details.
This is why I read traditional Regencies. The bulk of their pages
are made up of such minutiae that only a detail-oriented person could put
up with. I think "The Legacy Tree" could have been that much richer
had there been more background information woven into its pages.
This sweet novella was
a fast, fun read, especially if you cherish friends-turned-lovers stories.
(Keep an eye out for Erik's brother's story: "Truth and Lies".)
Warning: there are some very steamy passages in this book.
