I bought this novella thinking the cover was gorgeous and the story sounded intriguing--I like a romance that takes a slightly different twist. Fertility clinic? Doctor-patient? Hmmm. Well, I loaded the book onto the Kindle on my iPhone and climbed in bed thinking I'd start reading and see if the text was too small, etc etc.
I could NOT put Two in Winter down. From the very first scene, Vanessa North creates these interesting, likeable characters. The story does not sound like every other romantic story--it's got all the necessary parts to be satisfying, yet has unique characters, and unpredictable emotional depth-which was a fantastic surprise. I LOVED it. This book really defines the romantic-erotic genre. The intimate scenes are really hot but not "too graphic", and are just beautifully written. The characters are interesting, the story unpredictable...in a good way. I didn't know how it was going to end and was really enjoying watching the characters play out their stories. Every page felt "right", from the characters' unconventional names to their situation--a great read.
I loved this book, from the writer's narrative style to the characters' and their conflicts. And the end? I won't spoil it for you, this one is a must-read. I recommend it highly and will put this author in my favorites list.
