Sofia Brazier escapes a career gone south as a juvenile probationary officer in New Orleans. She moves from the large city to the small town of St. Fleur where she opens a photography business in an attempt to cleanse herself of the dark souls she'd tried to help. All is going well, untill Noah enters the local pub. Noah's wife died, and ultimately it is an act brought on by Noah's own daughter that brings their fates crashing together.
I was gifted an advanced copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review. I would like to thank A.J. Renee, Love Between the Sheets Blog Tour, and the publisher for offering me this opportunity to participate in the blog tour as well as offer a review.
All the emotion.
All of it.
This book is so very well written and it takes a trope that is quite difficult to get right and gets it so very, very write. A.J. Renee's debut novel is filled with a little bit of mystery to add to the romance that is building between Noah and Sofia. Everything flows so naturally through out the story, and even those scenes that are of an explicit sexual nature are so very well written.
The small paranormal aspect to the book is one that absolutely sealed my adoration to this story a bit more. I love that Sofia can see auras, and the fact that she can't see Noah's was enough to give her pause and ultimately pique a bit of her interest because....well that's something that's never actually happened before!
After I started the book (sometime after dinner and before bedtime on the 17th) I knew it was one that I'd have to put down before I went to bed or I'd ultimately end up finishing it in one setting and getting absolutely no sleep on a night where I had one of my longest shifts that week. My better judgement finally won out and I ended up puttin the book down and picking it back up after work and various other household errands. Only reason it took me about 2 days to read it is because I chose to defy the pull of this fantastic novel and delve into the real world when I really, really wanted to stay with Noah, Sofia and Lexi until the very last word was read.
This is definitely one that I will recommend to anyone that loves a fantastically written story, in-depth and relate-able characters and a little small town magic. ...more

Review: I was given a copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for the opportunity to review this book.
Honestly, not even six months later, and I'm drawing a blank on the majority of this book. Very little actually stuck with me as to why I gave it three stars. I must have liked and enjoyed something about it to have given it three stars. Yet, at the same time I do not honestly have the drive or the desire to read it again. I know that there was a point where I very nearly added it to my do not finish list, however I pressed forward and actually did finish it.
There needed to be a bit more development, and it also struck me as a bit too much like Death Becomes Her or something along those lines. Very rarely has a book left such a non-impression on me. I hate saying it, but I wish I could truly put my finger on just why I am so very meh about this book. ...more
