Here's another in my series of reviews of good reads. You should recognize the author of this book. It's my good friend George McVey, lovingly known as PG, and my brother in the Lord. We go way back to when he first insulted my writing. We've been friends ever since. We're able to help each other out as we write. We wrote a book together, Redeeming Love.
All that said, I don't want you to think my review is biased. Believe me I let PG know when I don't like what he's written. The results of my comments go directly to him and sometimes he sees the error of his ways. ;)
There are some words and illusions to hard body parts.
I really enjoyed Java Muse from start to finish. I helped with the editing so my copy was rough as only PG can make them.
The premise is cute. A successful author, R.G. or Rob, has writer's block, something I'm familiar with. He's at Java Cupid Coffeeshop when he meets Aurora, a struggling writer. They get acquainted and the Java Cupid strikes. My love is your Happy Ever After shows up on a cup of coffee R.G. buys Aurora. Thus starts the romance.
As the story progresses Aurora loses her job and Rob hires her as his assistant. There's a method to his madness as he is really attracted to her. There are past relationships, jealously, parents, siblings, work relationships all complicating the budding attraction between the author and struggling writer.
I was so captivated by the story I read (and edited) the story in one morning. Yes, it's not a really long book. I did start pretty early with my reading of it. Never did I feel like the plot was rushed. The progression was well paced and the didn't have that cut off quickly ending some shorter books have.
It's definitely a fun read for summer, or anytime. Grab Java Muse on Amazon. It's available in Kindle and if you're a KU subscriber... well you know the drill.
Java Muse is the second in the Java Cupid Series. Java Break book 1, written by my friend Lynn Donovan came out May 17 and the next book in the series Java Footprint, also by Lynn, hits cyber space on June 29. Watch for it.
