Louise Bay is one elegant writer who can create beautiful romances, and PARK AVENUE PRINCE is a fine example.
This author never fails to seduce my imagination. She's created an alluring setting, an attractive couple with opposite characters, and a romance that deeply ensnares the senses and tugs at your heart.
I was enamored with Sam and Grace. He's a business man, rich, intense, but with very hard origins. She's the owner of an art gallery, cautious and elegant. They start a sinuous relationship based on an acute attraction of the mind and the body, and I couldn't stop myself from soaking up their dialogues, their little challenges, and their steamy passion.
The best thing about this story is how both characters delve deep in the reasons of their behaviour in life and towards people to find out why they're like that. It's all motivated by their unique reaction to one another.
Teetering on opposite edges of a tight rope and, as they come closer together, they realize their differences are quite compatible.
I thought the evolution and the words were beautiful.
Ultimate bliss indeed.
And dark emotions of abandonment, fear and trauma, all tied up in huge knots inside Sam's heart which made me feel pure agony in the last part of the novel. Honestly, I could relate to his issues, I understand him too well. Yet Grace was so loyal and fierce in her belief in their love that it really crushed me to see her suffering. It was so painful! I'd have preferred his epiphany to be stronger, more heartfelt just like his rejection.
Luckily, the ending was incredibly beautiful and happy!
