Kaleidoscope by Kristen Ashley
If you are a Kristen Ashley fan, love the knuckle dragging heroes with heart and a badass persona or façade, you are in for a surprising treat with Kaleidoscope as Ms. Ashley gives us a true romance between two absolutely likable characters!
A Private Investigator in town working on a case that may involve Emme’s boyfriend, Deck also brings memories from the past to the surface for Emme. He never loses faith in her ability to address and conquer her demons. Emme is strong, but she has issues to overcome and Deck comes back into her life when she needs the strong, unwavering support of a real friend the most. As their attraction grows beyond that of friends and they admit as much, I couldn’t help but get that warm, fuzzy feeling , accompanied by a few sigh-worthy smiles. These two are perfect for each other. Deck is a powerful force in Emme’s life, who handles her with the care she needs. When all is said and done, will Emme look for her future in the eyes of Deck’s love or will she push him away, destroying his feelings and her one chance at true happiness?
Kristen Ashley shows off her versatility as a writer by toning down the action and focusing on the characters and their feelings without missing a beat. She still gives us conflict, and the usual ups and downs of romance, but this is a softer read than her signature style, and I loved it!
