I do so love these authors, I’ve read many a book by the pair and, apart from one, I have enjoyed immensely. Reservations is most certainly entertaining, but it didn’t live up to their previous work. I wasn’t really a fan of the cover right from the start, after reading the book I have to grudgingly admit it probably fits the book. It feels a bit gimmicky to me – which I found some of the story.
I liked Levi far more than I did Thane, in truth the more I read the less I liked Thane. I found his character extremely elitist and pushy – incredibly pushy. Levi was a different kettle of fish altogether and I really did like his character, he had a fair amount of integrity about him that was really difficult to overlook. So yes, my heart softened for Levi.
The storyline was engrossing for the most part but as mentioned earlier, I found some parts really quite gimmicky and maybe…cheesy. It was hard to take some scenes seriously and I wondered if Kindle Alexander have perhaps lost their midas touch. Plenty ‘moments’ in Reservations catch the readers emotions yet overall the plot fell a little flat in places. (Remember – I don’t spoil!)
The family dimension is a regular theme to these authors books and I absolutely loved Levi’s brothers and how they all interacted with one another in Reservations. If there is one thing that shone bright from the pages of the book – it was this plot thread. I think it gave a more human angle rather than just some hot chemistry and some chasing. I think without that integral theme there wouldn’t have been all that much to shore the story up and it would have fallen into plain erotica.
Anyway, I did enjoy and I would recommend but I don’t feel this is their best work and I was disappointed a little by that.
