A consistently feminist romance...

This is one of those that is a bit difficult to rate because it’s soooo perfect, it’s almost TOO perfect. From the writing to the characters to how gentle and low angst it is but also how meaningful, to how contemporary themes and outcomes in romance are turned on their heads... this book is doing a lot for something so simple. The story the author wanted to tell and the character she wanted to use to tell it is very straightforward and feminist. This is a story

Artist Luci is living her life as she wants since her divorce and has instant attraction to her neighbour graffiti artist Rafe. When their past demons come back to haunt them, will they survive? This is a good story which had me intrigued and hooked throughout and I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.

This is book 1 in the Cidade Cinza series.

I enjoyed this story. The main characters Luci and Rafe are neighbours and the chemistry starts from the first chapter and will keep going all the way through till the end.

Bento the brother of Rafe brings humor to the story and it's done rather well. It's also set in Brazil which was nice to read about.

I received a free copy of Courageous Lovers in exchange for an honest review. This was a quick and easy read. I enjoyed the depth of the characters Lucilia and Rafa. I also really enjoyed the Brazilian background, and the introduction to some of the culture and history there.

Overall, this was a book that I would recommend.
