Sonnet Coupled by Roxanne D Howard


Sheltered and cosseted, Sonnet Mendoza abided by her papi’s wishes her whole life: no boys, studies first and always. Now an ER nurse in a busy Chicago hospital, medical school is so close Sonnet can taste it. Just like her father always wanted. Just like she can taste all the things she wants—like Griffith Parker, the man of her dreams and her new housemate.

Working “graves” in a large hospital as a security guard while attending the police academy during the day doesn’t leave ex-Marine Griffith Parker any personal time, but after meeting the beautiful Sonnet Mendoza, business as usual is anything but. Sassy, smart…and interested in him, too? Except, she’s made an art of keeping her distance, and she’s been clear that her plans don’t include him. But the heart wants what the heart wants. His wants Sonnet. He’ll put it on the line to win her.

A Fun, Witty, Sizzling, Passion Filled Love Story! Sonnet Mendoza has been doing everything possible to achieve her dream and all that hard work brings her one step closer she receives an unexpected opportunity. The one thing she didn't plan on was meeting a man that could change everything. Griffith Parker is a man of duty, so attending the police academy after getting honorably discharged from the military. His goal is simple until he meets a woman that calls to him like none before. Their connection grows the more they get to know each other. A passion like theirs can only be fought for so long until it combusts. But when their careers threaten to take them in different directions, will they find a way to stay together or will they walk away from each other to achieve their dreams? Sonnet Coupled is a witty, saucy, entertaining read that captivates the reader from page one until the delightful conclusion. Sonnet is a kind, generous person and that shows in everything she does. She appreciates the little things and doesn't take things for granted. Even though she's lived a largely sheltered life she isn't afraid to try new things even if it takes it out of her comfort zone. I really love her spirit. Griff is a man's man and sexy as all get out. A man that will do whatever it takes to protect the people he cares about is heartwarming. His dedication to his job is honorable. And he's a man that knows what he wants to doesn't stop until he gets it. I loved Sonnet Coupled a lot more than I expected. The storyline is engaging and charming, the hero tempting and upstanding, the heroine alluring and respectable, and the romance intense and all consuming. I would highly recommend Sonnet Coupled to any looking for a read that will take them on an emotional journey and leave you with a smile.

Beautiful. Sexy. Sweet. Sonnet was the young woman that had the over, over protective father that set a path for her and she followed it. Well, until she couldn’t. Or should that be wouldn’t. Sonnet was the dutiful daughter even in death. She followed the path that was set for her by her loving and protective father. He wanted better for his daughter. She was so close to achievement. Then a few setbacks take place. None of which she could have imagined. Now needing comfort and security she accepts a housemate to help out with expenses and security. In comes Griffith. He had his own path that he wants to follow. And the sexy, sweet, alluring Sonnet was not part of them, until she was. I got no less that what I expect from Roxanne. I got me a sexy, sweet, slightly erotic read with two people that didn’t count on the other one coming in to their lives at-this-point-in-time. I loved the characters and the backdrop. Two set and determined individuals that need to attain their goals. Find that to be together may mean a little sacrifice and understanding. Come get caught up in the lives of Sonnet and Griffith. Find the choices they make turn them into something so much more when its all done.

Sonnet Coupled is an endearing story of an ambitious young woman. Sonnet is a nurse, the daughter of Argentinian immigrants, living alone after her father's death. She receives an amazing offer-a great life opportunity that can change her future. She must be strong, determined and face tough moments  but she is ready for the challenge. What she is not ready is for love-much less if love is in the body of a hunky security guard. She is prejudiced and despises him but her body has another agenda. An unexpected event throws her through a loop and changes her mind. Will the daughter of immigrants become the weak link? Will she disappoint her father's memory and leave her career behind? Sonnet Coupled has hot scenes and a beautiful message. We can relate with the strong young woman the author built and admire her determination. The young nurse is focused and her life is worth reading and enjoying. The book is well written.  The character's mind is easy to understand as she struggles to keep focused and deal with the perks of sudden and disturbing situations.

Smoking hot! I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review, and I wasn't disappointed! The sex scenes steal the show, but the heart of this novel are two people who grow as they open up and learn about each other. Tender, funny, and erotic, this love story excites and delights.

A romance story that shares similarities to my own including my chosen profession in relation to Sonnet's, the female lead. Neither party is actively seeking romance and try, as futile as it may seem, to remain acquaintances but soon find their mutual attraction for one another too much to resist! This story is HOT, HOT, HOT! The passion that Sonnet & Griffith display for one another will have you believing in fated love. The characters, plot, & storyline are all well developed! I didn't want their story to end! Kudos to the author for a job well done! ;)
