Je n'ai pas été déçu, loin de là, même si l'histoire est courte, on s'immerge très vite et on se prend d'amitié pour Nicky, pauvre homme pour qui la vie n'a pas été tendre récemment.
C'est étrange de présenter un personnage adepte du nettoyage ménager mais l'auteure transpose ici la version de la femme au foyer typique vers une version plus masculine. Ne vous imaginez pas que Nicky soit efféminé, loin de là. Il aime juste qu'une maison étincele de propreté. J'ai aimé la manière qu'à l'auteure d'aborder son personnage, après tout Nicky se retrouve dans la même situation que bien des femmes qui se sont consacrées à leur mari et pourtant le prince charmant n'est peut être pas si loin...
Spencer a tout du prince charmant sauf peut être ses dons ménagers mais qui est parfait. La romance se met doucement en place tout au long de l'histoire et on sent qu'il ne s'agit pas de quelque chose de passager mais Nicky doit combattre ses démons avant d'envisager une relation sérieuse.
Je présenterai ce roman comme un merveilleux conte moderne à l'instar de Cendrillon moins la marâtre etc. J'ai lu d'une traite cette histoire avec un sourire aux lèvres, bref j'ai passé un bon moment. Certes ce n'est pas le livre de l'année mais il remplit parfaitement son office et c'est parfait.
The story is easy on the emotions and one feels connected with the main characters.
Nicky finds himself in a relationship of betrayal and had enough spunk to face the reality of creating partial archs to Tom's infidelity. When he caught Tom doing his thing with Simon, he seems to dissociate from what he has walked in on and as if in a trance went to work (in Tom' s restaurant) dealing with a bunch of crappy customers and feeling off-kilter. His clients' miserable behaviour led to an accident, and he finally left the restaurant to go to the home he shared with Tom. It finally dawned on him that Tom was not the faithful and honest type, packed his bags and embarked on a stay with friends. Feeling that at 29 he has no direction in life and could never decide on what career to enter, his friends Bavir and Evan got him a house sitting gig that got him honing into his cleaning skills. Whilst in a coffee shop with Evan and Bavir,he saw this gorgeous man so focussed on his laptop frowning ever so often. His concentration led to an accident with coffee spilling everywhere staining his shirt. The accident was rather unwelcome as he was preparing for a meeting. Nicky came to the rescue and noticed the guy was wearing unmatched socks. The guy admitted to being colour blind any Nicky ends up giving him advice.To cut a long story short, Destiny could not but extend an olive branch to the now homeless Nicky...
This is a warm, goodnatured story about one of Kim Fielding's favorite themes--cleaning as healing. It's impossible not to like both leads and feel good about their slow-burn romance. As stories go this is on the far end of low-key for me, as in almost too low-conflict. It's relaxing and realistic, since most couples I've known in my life managed to come together without attempted kidnappings, destined mate instincts, or life-n-death hijinks. But combined with the almost total absence of on-page sex, that relaxation risks slipping over into a contented doze. Still, it's the middle of summer now and the book was the perfect pastime for a mild, sunny day. Moreover, Fielding is to be admired for her fearless resistance of cheap thrills and gratuitous angst-fests in bringing together two sweet, lovable guys.
I appreciate that Kim can write this sweet story, and something as dramatic as The Tin Box. She has a good range as an author....
