All The Waters Of The Earth is a sensational piece of art. Reading this book was like watching an artist at work.
We begin with the blank canvas. We are slowly brought into the story with Lucy, soft brush strokes begin to outline her story and bring us into her world. Lucy is incredibly sexy and super Sassy, but has those cracks we all have from past heartache. I felt her immediately. Understanding the person behind the romance writer.
The artist continues, pulling you in deeper, now splashes of colour are added as we meet our hero, Jake. A complex, hot man who likes to wear suits for stupid amounts of hours. He’s intriguing. The romance lover in all of us knows he has a past and immediately we can feel the attraction he has in Lucy from the first kiss alone. And the tingles Lucy feels are felt in us.
The artist is back, pulling back our focus onto the deep, sultry lines that now fill the picture, the tension between Lucy and Jake sizzles, the long sweeping brush strokes grab your attention and hold it, strongly.
Mixed with long, deep lines we get some intense bursts of colour, sharp, short lines that catch the breath and speed up the heart. Seriously the hotness that oozes from Lucy and Jake is off the charts.
Gradually, a picture begins to take shape, a story forms the writer of beautiful romance suddenly becomes the heroine with her own hero. This story is sexy, it’s sweet. It has humour and sadness. My heart fluttered for these two and hurt for Lucy.
Throughout it all my attention is held, hard and soft brush strokes, light and dark, pull together to leave us with a stunning masterpiece.
5 intense, artistic stars.
Romance novelist Lucy Figueroa lives a life of the imagination. While her stories are filled with fictional alpha male heroes, her real life is filled with nothing but Mr. Wrongs. As a sassy, strong, single mom, she doesn’t need anyone… except maybe a new book idea. And to forgive herself for the mistakes of the past.
Lucy’s sexy new neighbor, Jake Slausen, looks like one of her characters come to life. While he fits the heartthrob part, he doesn’t act it, too distracted by his cell phone and his job for any relationship. Damaged by his childhood, he’s ignored his true calling and goes through his days on autopilot…until he meets Lucy.
First drawn together by chemistry, then by a fierce need to protect each other even from themselves, will Jake and Lucy learn to accept their pasts or will they convince themselves that happily ever afters only exist in romance novels?
