Sunset Reads is a story about two people falling in love in the universe of Sunset Reads which was started with the book 1 of the series. I do hope that D.C. writes a story for Henry, he needs to be happy after not getting the girl of his dreams.

The cover is very pretty and as eye catching as the first.

The pacing of the story line was really good and it didn’t feel like months had passed between the beginning and the chapter of Damian’s return. However, there were some typos that were a little nagging which is for why I took off some from the main rating. The novel ended on a good note with a happy ending. The FBI agent got the girl and the girl got a nice looking future ahead of her.

In my review of the first book, I wrote: “One of my favorite side characters was Cristina’s brother, Henry. I’m wondering if there will be a novel about him and one of Cristina’s best friends unless I’ve read the hints wrong.” Interesting how I come back to him without even remembering that I did… oh and where was Obi, Christina’s dog? We saw Christina’s growing family, but didn’t hear about her book projects which would have been nice to see…though I do see the point of omitting that information cause the book was about a different couple.

Oh, and those two should really learn to respect others…in a way of not making them uncomfortable 😉 Talking of course about Damian with Layla. Very well written scenes for those of us who like steamy romance. Oh, and this wasn’t really a slow romance, more of a ride of this one and I think that I was the plan.

I highly recommend to the readers  (18+ years) who love reading about romance stories in one universe.

Sunset Reads is a story about two people falling in love. I do say that William Jameson’s mother was probably dancing up in heaven watching everything unfold, though I do hope that she looked elsewhere on the more private scenes and scenes of people getting hurt. 😉

To be honest, the synopsis for the novel did not grab my attention. It sounded too much main stream but I loved the cover and asked the author if I could read it. Boy, was I happy to read the romance unfold. Yes, there were times when I wanted to take a pause from it because it has long paragraphs, but I did read it in one sitting with some popcorn on the side. Another thing that bugged me was the use of ‘you’re’ when it was supposed to be ‘your,’ but hey typos happen so I focused on the scenes and it was like I watching a movie. Well done!

The pacing was perfect and the novel ended on a good note.

Now onto the characters. This novel has the couple as the main characters of the novel and enough of side characters that helped out the plot. Of course, I hated William’s step-father and guess what? We’re supposed to hate him! ^_^ One of my favorite side characters was Cristina’s brother, Henry. I’m wondering if there will be a novel about him and one of Cristina’s best friends unless I’ve read the hints wrong. The others were good for the story.  Oh, and I found Cristina’s dog, Obi, adorable. I’m very happy that nothing bad happened to Obi in the novel because if it did, I probably would have abandoned reading right then and there.

I did google on how a a white and brown Lhasa Apso looks like and found a lot of very cute dogs. I really want to pet Obi now (though probably the real one because D.C.Triana has her own Obi. So cute!

I highly recommend to the readers  (18+ years) who love slow  romance that turns steamy.
