Timing: Book One
Stefan Joss just can’t win. Not only does he have to go to Texas in the middle of summer to be the man of honor in his best friend Charlotte’s wedding, but he’s expected to negotiate a million-dollar business deal at the same time. Worst of all, he’s thrown for a loop when he arrives to see the one man Charlotte promised wouldn’t be there: her brother, Rand Holloway.
Stefan and Rand have been mortal enemies since the day they met, so Stefan is shocked when a temporary cease-fire sees the usual hostility replaced by instant chemistry. Though leery of the unexpected feelings, Stefan is swayed by a sincere revelation from Rand, and he decides to give Rand a chance.
But their budding romance is threatened when Stefan’s business deal goes wrong: the owner of the last ranch he needs to secure for the company is murdered. Stefan’s in for the surprise of his life as he finds himself in danger as well.
Great Story-Great Chatacters
Characters were great. I didn’t want it to end!
This book is dialogue centric and can be somewhat difficult to read (in my opinion) because of this fact. There are pages where it is just back and forth conversation, and while this itself wouldn’t be too bad there is no breakups between the lines of each speaker; I think it might’ve been better to take breaks to show what the character was doing as they were talking, or writing about their expressions or the environment they were in. It helps give the reader a chance to breathe and sometimes figure out just who is talking if they lost their spot in the dialogue. This is just preference though. The characters themselves seem well developed and are very likable but, the pacing of the story is kind of odd. I felt like the threat introduced to the main character was put on the back burner after briefly being introduced and wasn’t really developed as well as it could’ve been. Take this all with a grain of salt though.
"Timing" a romance after ten years of yearning desire ....
Reading this story the second time proved the well written scenario.
