Heels of Love (book review)
About the book:
When Cricket Hooper moves to Seattle she only has a couple of goals—find a job and an apartment near her friend Chelle, and basically to live a quiet, normal life. However, it isn't long before life becomes far from normal.
When a mysterious man helps get her car out of the mud after she makes a wrong turn, she finds herself in his thrall. He wines and dines her, quite literally, and before Cricket can stop it, things are steamy and serious…very serious.
Cricket is thrown aback when Jyme turns out to be more than a simple fisherman, but then she isn't telling all of her story either.
I have to start by saying I really don't get the connection with the cover and the title with the actual story. It just doesn't match up for me. (And it just really bugs me.)
I found the writing to be really simple and straight forward. Nothing overly flowery. Nothing extra. If someone told me that I might automatically think I wouldn't enjoy the book... but I have to say I actually got really drawn into the story. I think I liked Cricket's character pretty quickly... although it took quite a while to really know anything about her. Jyme on the other hand... the mystery surrounding him from the very first time he is introduced just drew me right in. Like Cricket... I just couldn't help but want to know more. I loved the twists and turns of learning about him. There were a couple of things between Cricket and Jyme that I REALLY didn't follow... and just didn't like. But... they did seem to connect in some kind of destined way.
I have to say I loved Jyme's family. His mother, in particular, while a real pain-in-the-ass... was truly looking out for her son. I loved the way that the relationship between Jyme's mom and Cricket progressed. It was so uncomfortable... almost painful at times. It made for a really interesting side story.
