Book Review: Heaven Scent by Vicki Lewis Thompson

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I’ll be posting every day this week with a theme of romance! So keep coming back or subscribe to get emails, because everyone can use a little love in their life…

Warning: May Contain Spoilers

Synopsis: Jamie Ruskin has been in love with her best friend’s brother for years. So when Jamie needs a male opinion on what is sexy for her new aromatherapy company, she asks Dev… and then uses her newfound knowledge to finally go after the man of her dreams.

Author: Bestselling author Vicki Lewis Thompson says “writing romance is the most fun you can have while vertical.” Not only writing for Harlequin, Vicki has a few paranormal novels and a contemporary series where nerdy men are the heroes (also great reads!).

Writing Style: Vicki’s pen creates the rom-com of novels. Sweet romances aren’t enough; they have to also be funny and a little bit sexy too. Vicki has you alternating between giggling to yourself and thinking, I’ll take two of him.

Character: It is nice to know that even men can be insecure about asking a girl out. Dev is not only rich, gorgeous, and adorable, but has a lack of arrogance that keeps him from being the stereotypical snob.

Romance: Jamie and Dev’s romance reminds me a bit of Shakespeare’s comedies in a way –it’s one of those madcap relationships that just needs a wise fool to smack everyone upside the head.  Because neither Jamie nor Dev are completely honest with each other, their future as a couple could go up in flames… and not in a good way.

Quote: Tiny people can’t drink as much as big people.

The Verdict: An adorable read you don’t want to pass over.

What would you do to win the man of your dreams? Have you ever pretended to be something you’re not?
