The Colors of My Life by Linda Burson is a book that was unlike anything I have read recently, and I was left several times wondering exactly I was reading in the first place. Colors is about a young woman named Caylie Lyon who just happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, becoming a victim of a bank robbery. Throughout the ordeal she becomes close to one of the would-be robbers, Cole, and they form a bond unlike anything that I would have imagined (Stockholm syndrome much??). What threw me was that events after the robbery, Caylie and Cole end up again together, and she becomes the target again when Cole’s world of dark and danger collide with hers. It would seem that Cole was nothing but bad news, but there is something about him that Caylie just can’t seem to get enough of. The story line was one that kept me wondering what was going to happen next, but I had a hard time connecting with the characters, and attempting to understand the logic of the entire plot. This is the first book by Burson that I have read, and while I wasn’t all that impressed with it, I would be interested in trying her works again in the future. If you are looking for a new author to dip your toe into, this is one that will keep you guessing from the beginning of the book til the last.

I was given this book as an ACR. I must say I found it a little slow at the start but the longer I continued with it the more the story grabbed me. This is a story that touches on so many different aspects of everyday life. This is a book you will enjoy as you will be drawn into Caylie and Cole's world where you won't want to stop until you find out if everything works out for them. I have given this book a 4-star ⭐️ rating and highly recommend it to anyone who loves to see happy endings.

The Colors Of My Life by Linda Burson 5 Stars Ok wow, this is my first book by this author but definitely won't be my last. It's kind of weird because I have found myself while in my bank always looking around while I'm there just in case something seemed strange and then I read this book and it's hard to explain but I felt like I was there with Caylie. This story was different and I really enjoyed it, I loved most of the characters, and disliked the ones I was meant to dislike. They were all written very well. I'm not sure I agree with one of the relationships in this story but who knows how a person would handle that unless they were in the same position, and the relationship that resulted from it was simply awesome. I absolutely loved that Caylie was older than the normal 20 something and this author showed that age is not an issue when it comes to those steamy scenes and falling in love. I loved the twist that had me totally confused and I was wayyy off the mark in who I thought was involved, this was written perfectly! I loved this book, it moved at a great pace and the storyline was very creative. I cant wait to check out this authors other books. I would highly recommend reading this one!

The Colors of My Life by Linda Burson is about learning that you are never to old to find passion. This is my first story by this author and I know I will be going back for more. I enjoyed her creative writing style and her creative characters. You will enjoy how these characters are true to life and connectable. They will take you on a roller coaster ride of various emotions that you won't want to miss. This story as a few twists and turn that will leave you sitting on the edge of your seat and others that will leave you wanting more. This story will make you question, how old is to old for passion? Is there even an age limit or is passion just timeless? Find out what happens when these characters are faced with these questions and more. Caylie Lyons is in the bank with her husband waiting for paperwork. What will happen when she finds herself in the middle of a bank robbery? When she is taken hostage, what will she do? What starts out as a scary situation for her, ends up with a relationship that she doesn't see coming. When they are caught, she is free to go back to her life, a marriage that is more of a convenience. Cole is eventually released from prison and is reunited with Caylie. His plan is to go after the construction company that killed his brother. They are the reason he turned to robbery when they destroyed his construction business. What will happen when the construction company finds out about Cole's plan? Will Caylie find herself in danger? Will Cole be there to protect her? Caylie and Cole's relationship doesn't start out the way most relationships do. He takes her hostage but the longer they are together, the closer they become. They share the most inner thoughts including Caylie color vision. She has been stuck in a marriage that she loves but it is lacking the passion. What will happen when Cole stirs a passion in her that she hasn't seen in a long time? When Cole starts putting his plan in place, will he realize that it will effect the one person he cares most about? These are two strong characters that honestly has been through so much in their lives. The robbery brings back tragic memories for Caylie that leave her a little frightened. I give her lots of credit for what she did considering the situation. Cole is a strong man who is a take charge type and knows how to get what he wants. He doesn't back down when faced with difficult situations, even with the secondary characters. The secondary characters are just as enjoyable. Of course, you always have one or two that you can't stand but for the most part, even the secondary characters are connectable. This story just flows right along with all of these characters. Find out what happens when these two find passion that they were not expecting. This is my first story by Linda Burson and I cant' wait to see what she will write for us next. Linda started writing her first book after running her own business for over twenty years along with raising a family and editing for others. She feels that having the support of her husband and children is apart of her inspiration. This is a fast paced story that will keep you engaged until the last page. It will keep you turning pages just waiting to see what will happen next. I highly recommend this story as I know you will want to see what happens when these two find their passion.
