As an avid reader I can tell she's a new author. With that said - the story line is awesome. The words paint a picture yet leaves enough for the imagination to fill in. The story keeps you wanting more!

4 star The story has laughs, secrets and blackmail. This is Isabel and Marc’s story. Isabel is on vacation. Marc is in town for a conference. They spend time together and get to know each other. They both have secrets they are not sure that they need to share. Marc wants to spend all his time with Isabel. Isabel wonders what Marc sees in her as she is a single mother and not model thin. Marc finds Isabel really funny when she is not coming down on herself. I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read. I recommend this book and can’t wait for the next story from this author.

Isabel is taking a long overdue vacation. Her boys are taken care of and she is still off for the summer.  She does a little touring and lots of resting. She is having a glass of wine and in walks this gorgeous hunk of a man.   She has her dinner in the hotel.  She is trying to be cool.  She realizes she needs to be a little less obvious.  She starts reading her ebook.  She is totally into it and then she feels him looking at her.  They hit it off and then .... Life is good and love is so romantic.   A great beach read and will make you giggle in places.

There were some British terms that I am not used to reading, but it did not take away from the story, but rather added to it since it takes place in the UK. The story leaves off with a slight cliffhanger and I need more. This is a good read that will grip you in and make you pull up a cuppa and want to dive in. Isabel Chambers is inching toward forty. She is the single mother of two older boys and she is *gasp* not a stick figure. She needs “me time” and sets off to a hotel for a week for a little R&R away from her kids and just life in general. If I knew any better I would think Isabel was real since she totally sounds like someone I could know. It is at this hotel escape that Isabel eyes an American stud named Marc Sanders. Isabel is hesitant to approach his due to not having the perfect figure and not having the best luck with men, but one phone call to her bestie later, she decides to let down her guard once she sees him again in the hotel bar. Thank goodness she does because Marc is just what the doctor ordered. Isabel falls in to a whirlwind romance with Mr. Sanders. I love that the book touches on Isabel being a bigger gal, but does not focus on it. Marc is attracted to her regardless, giving Isabel the needed ego boost she was in search of. Then the craziness happens. Isabel has an ex in prison that Marc has no idea about because Marc has his own set of problems. Their crazy past rears its ugly head and Isabel finds herself in the middle of a blackmail situation involving Marc. What else will surface about their pasts? Will their week together become more? Did I say I need more..because I do. I cannot wait to dive back in to Isabel & Marc in "A Constant Attraction"!

An Acute Attraction by A.J. Walters 5 out of 5 stars! An Acute Attraction is a hot, steamy journey into our dreams for every single mom living. Your atypical heroine, Izzy is open and honest, daring, reckless and oh so familiar to most of us. Going on holiday from her children she lets herself awaken and be the girl she once was for a few days, a woman longing for passion and love. Forgetting the bastard who had broken her heart and almost broken her spirit, Izzy finds Marc. Marc is handsome, rich, loving and all smoldering hunk. I don’t want to spoil it for you, you’ve just got to read it! Here is a little tease… “Take a look around you, then you can judge how daring you are as I ask you to touch yourself.” Yup! My eyes nearly popped out of their sockets too! The thing is, I know what he is asking me to do and the adrenalin has rushed to all of the right places of my body. My nipples harden to peaks against my white lace bra, my stomach does a somersault and the hairs on my arms stand on end. My sex clenches and yes, I even bite my lip. What sways my decision is that he is asking me and not telling me to do it. He is giving me the option. Taking in my surroundings, I can tell by the layout of the place and where I am sitting that nobody would notice if I went for it. “Okay then, where?” There is great tenderness and love as well as the juicy bits to this novel. It is a nice 2 hour read. I highly recommend it. **A complimentary copy was given by the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review** Cheryle, My Secret Book Spot

After Isabel arrived at The Haveril Lodge located in a small town on the outskirts of Cambridge, she decides to sit in the hotel lounge for a glass of Pinot Grigio to participate in one of favorite hobbies, people watching. While people watching everyone enter the hotel, she spots a God of a man causing her to lose her bearings - Marc Sanders. Isabel notices Marc in lounge room of the hotel reading the newspaper, so she decides to start a conversation with him. Marc introduces himself and explains his stay is business related, because he is research executive from the Harvard University on a quest to persuade Cambridge University to work together to the development of better vaccines. Marc apologizes to Isabel when he has to leave to a phone call, but Isabel does not feel awkward only more determined to get to know this HOT man. Isabel finds herself taking advantage of the amenities and goes back to her room feeling relax and a bit daring. Isabel decides she is going to dine at the hotel hoping to see Marc again. An electric sensation occurs between the two and they decide to keep company with other a few times. Unfortunately, Isabel cannot stop herself from gawking at the sight of a god-like man. Even though Isabel has been a single mom for the past four years, Marc is also struggling with a crisis in his life and that also effects a past. Marc and Isabel soon find out there are others who want more from Marc and Isabel is determined to help Marc through his crisis. Marc can only feel that Isabel is more special than any other woman he has dating in his life, because the woman from his past only wanted him for his money. Luckily, his issue that torments him does not bother Isabel, because she sees man before her as romantic and sweet.  SWOON! Will Marc be able to tell Isabel his crisis in hopes she will not run away from him and his past? Can Marc and Isabel overcome their past, so they can look toward a possible future? Will Isabel consider a relationship with Marc even though his residence is “across the pond”. A.J. Walters’ novel, An Acute Attraction, is the first novel in which Scarlett has done a magnificent job writing a captivating story that will have you feel as if you are on an emotional roller coaster of COMPASSION, SADNESS, ANGER, LAUGHTER, LUST, FRIENDSHIP, and LOVE. An Acute Attraction will capture your attention immediately and will be unable to put the book down, because you will join Marc and Isabel’s adventure to resolve their past insecurities, secrets and trust for a possible.
