Five Diamond Review From Got Romance Reviews

This was going to be a one post day, but I was just tagged on facebook with this review from Got Romance Reviews.

I’m mostly thrilled now that I can put up the Got Romance Banner here on the blog. I love that banner, and I’ve never had a book reviewed by them before. And I’m also happy because this short story e-book, STRAWBERRIES AND CREAM AT THE PLAZA, is one of the few works of fiction I’ve ever written in the first person. It’s also one of the few books I’ve written with practically no erotica. Oddly, it’s more difficult for me to write something with emotion that doesn’t have erotica.

Big thank you to Jillian over at Got Romance Reviews!!

I loved this story. Flat out adored it. The emotions were so pure and the writing was some of the best I’ve seen, which is refreshing and gave me the opportunity to enjoy the story without my internal editor flashing. Telling a story in first person POV can be tricky, since the reader may not get a sound idea of what the character telling the story is like, except through his eyes. However, the author did a superb job of giving the reader a very good visual of who Kellan is. And the descriptions of the other hero, Jason, were so detailed, with layers that proved how great a writer Ryan Field is.

The story itself was a wonderful, if very short, journey of discovery. Kellan wants more than sex…he wants a deeper and more meaningful connection. The fact that he finds it right under (or above, as the case may be) his nose, is so perfect. Truth is stranger than fiction and even though this story is fiction, I was able to suspend disbelief without any problem whatsoever because I truly wanted these two men to find and fall for each other. Kudos to the author and I’ll definitely be looking for more from him. This earned every diamond!
