Saving Simone (Florida Veterans Book 3)
by Tiffani Lynn
MY REVIEW – 4.5 STARS
Quite simply a great read
Saving Simone is a shorter novel, but it certainly doesn’t lack in story, emotion or depth. It starts with an incredibly steamy encounter between Simone and Thomas, followed by a very up and down relationship. However none of the angst felt over-the-top or unnecessary, which is what I enjoy most about books by this author. Her stories feel ‘real’, as do her characters and you can’t help but be drawn into the story. It engaged my emotions, leaving my hugely invested in these characters and their story.
I don’t read many ‘straight’ contemporary romances, I find the majority of them fail to capture my interest. However I know without a shadow of a doubt that I will enjoy a book written by Tiffani Lynn. Her characters are so believable they feel like friends, the plots draw you in and the writing is superb. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of this book and can’t wait for the next one.
Successful romance novelist Simone Sayer may know how to write the perfect love story, but she hasn’t yet lived one. While her love life remains non-existent, the light of her life is her eight-year-old son, Gavin.
Everything changed for them when one of her books was made into a movie, affording her the opportunity to write full-time. But she can’t help but feel like something, or more likely someone, is still missing.
Army Green Beret Veteran Thomas Wade uses his skills as a bodyguard for hire at his brother’s firm– Sunset Security. Because of his line of work, relationships have never been his thing. Bringing random women home was enough, until the night he meets a sexy stranger in a hotel bar.
It turns out these two have more in common than being lonely. From chemistry to catastrophe, everything falls apart before it can begin. Just when they thought they would never see each other again, they find themselves in an untenable situation.
Thomas will risk his life to save Simone, but it could cost them both their hearts.
5 stars – This is a book I will not forget and would definitely read again.
4 stars – I really enjoyed this book, I might not read it again but I would definitely recommend it to others.
3 stars – This story was good but either forgettable or just very typical of its genre.
2 stars – Whilst the book was readable I either didn’t enjoy parts of the plot or just could not connect to the main characters.
1 star – This is a book I simply could not finish for reasons listed in the review.
