Kate Baker – Reader in The fiction cafe book group.


I’ve finished the final page with tears dropping off my chin (the music below is what the MC is listening to as this book draws to a close) and I’ve been put through the emotional mill for 517 pages of gut-aching chemistry, anguish-inducing scenes in which both main characters dance round each other when they should simply BE HONEST with each other.

The irritation was palpable at times in me … one of the many emotions that had me knowing I would never give up on the read.

I’d seen the book’s title bandied about during the months I’d been a member here and I was fascinated with the hype and keen to find out what was actually behind these admittedly seductive covers.

A teeny part of me opened the first page wondering if it was just ‘another sex romp’. Far far from it my friends. As the layers of complication unpeeled gradually, from a difficult childhood, a non-effective mother, life lessons at the hands of evil, Emma’s character brought to me a request for patience and understanding. So I stuck by her and went through every emotion she did and the chapters and months unfolded in her new life.

Leanne’s writing style is straightforward, contemporary, humorous, littered with clever metaphors, dripping with emotion in which you find yourself smothered (well I did, because I’m a sop like that).


The Carrero Effect

14 December 2017

Format: Kindle Edition
I came across The Carrero Effect in one of my Facebook Book Groups and decided to give it a go. Initially I wasn’t sure what to expect, however I was pleasantly surprised.

From the first chapter I was inexplicably drawn into the lives of Emma and Jake and found it extremely difficult to put down. This is not just your standard romance novel; it’s a major rollercoaster of a book that will have you begging for more by the end. As for the ending, you are left with a cliffhanger of gargantuan proportions, which fortunately can be sated by the availability of book two. Unfortunately for me I’ve not had the chance to start book two yet; but I’m hoping to reconnect myself into the life of Jake and Emma very soon.

I have to say that, with the exception of a couple of items, I adored this book. The characters were well written and found myself invested in their lives and relationships. I loved how the story progressed and how the history of the two main characters was slowly explained. I could have lived without the Italian pet names, but they didn’t spoil my enjoyment of the story whatsoever and I am looking forward to starting book 2, The Carrero Influence.
