Product Description

Sometimes the only way to forgiveness is through love

Foley has a new boss she doesn’t like, a flatmate who’s been known to wear odd shoes, and a car that’s ready to pack it in.  She hasn’t met a guy worth lipstick in forever, and though she planned a life less ordinary, the only thing unique about her is a badly thought through tattoo.

Until Drum.

Drum wasn’t always the cliff guy, a homeless man sheltering in a cave tucked above a popular tourist beach. He wanted to get as far away from his previous life as possible.  Now he wakes with the sun, runs on the beach, does odd jobs for cash to buy food, and is at peace.

Until Foley.

It’s Foley’s job to find Drum a safer place to live, but the only home Drum wants is the one place he can never stay: Foley’s heart.

I loved this book and read it in one sitting on a rainy Sunday afternoon (& on into the night...) It wouldn't have mattered if it was gorgeous outside though - I couldn't put it down!
It's an unlikely love story. A homeless man and a public servant. But it's entirely believable and as the story progresses and we see the relationship grow we find ourselves wanting them to work out the problems and get their happy ever after. And boy are there some problems! Drums past is a shadow hanging over him and Foley's boss is a making work hell. There's a nosy reporter who's also her best friend and an eviction petition gaining support to make Drum leave his cave with a million dollar view.
As always, Ainslie's exquisite use of language makes this a really special read. She draws you in and the whole love affair is totally delicious. Read it. You'll love it!

Many times in the last year or so, I've tried to work out why Ainslie Paton isn't one of the top-selling romance authors not only in Australia, but anywhere across the romance reading world. Her books just resonate with me, every damn time.
She writes the unpredictable hero and heroine. She mixes things up. She puts glass ceilings in a book and smashes them with words.
In the 'Love Triumphs' series, she's written a hero who is a nanny (Unsuitable); a hero who is an IT geek (Insecure) and now this latest, Inconsolable gives us Drum, the homeless hero.
You can never accuse Ainslie of writing half-measures, or 'almost' plots. She goes there. By hell or high water, she goes there with contemporary, real life issues, and it is where so many writers would fear to tread.
I've wondered if it's her writing style that might put some readers off trying her work. Judging by Goodreads and Amazon reviews, her books do seem to polarise people. I've said in reviews of Ainslie's other books that you have to hold on to your seat when you open an Ainslie Paton story. She puts words together in ways that don't make for necessarily roll-off-your-tongue reading.
These are some lines from Inconsolable that I highlighted as I read:
'She (Foley) didn't patronise or try to manipulate him. She was straight up with a sweetening of sorry to inconvenience you. She treated him with decency and respect, she tried desperately to understand him and it pissed him off.'
And another after Drum has had a huge hissy fit at Foley and scared her senseless:
'Her shoes were off, her sunglasses, her hand was over her mouth and she shook like the wind was inside her.'
This one when Drum is starting to realise what Foley means to him:
'He'd chosen deliberately not to think about her.

While it's hard for me to say one of Ainslie's books are better than the others, (because in truth most of her books are my favourites) this book is amazing, and without a doubt is absolutely my favourite. When I got to the end I went straight back to the beginning. This is the book to read when you are first being introduced to the magic (as Lily Malone so aptly called it) of Ainslie's writing. Highly, highly, highly recommended !!!

Inconsolable is Drum and Foley's story. Drum is a homeless person by choice, living in a cave, overlooking a tourist beach with a million dollar view; he is a tormented soul with feelings of deep guilt and remorse.
Foley works for the council and has the job of relocating Drum to a safer location; she is intelligent, funny, caring and unlucky in love.

This is a story about compassion and kindness, falling in love and hearts breaking, of forgiveness and understanding; of how love can help a man find the best version of himself when he has lost all hope; giving him a reason to start living again, to re-engage with the world and fight for the love of his life.

Paton's amazing storytelling, and her ability to infuse her writing with such a feeling of realness, will have you grabbing for tissues, when you read this beautifully written romance about finding love in the most unexpected places.

5.0 out of 5 stars Different, dramatic and appealing 27 August 2015
By Jenny Schwartz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I approached "Inconsolable" with a degree of caution. I like Ainslie Paton's books. They're powerful, with characters struggling to resolve who they are and what they're doing in life. The issue I potentially had with "Inconsolable" was that with a homeless hero she might romanticise the issue of homelessness.

Homelessness is a complicated issue, one with a lot of heartbreak wrapping around it. "Inconsolable" had a lot of tension between exploring the causes and consequences of homelessness, and reconciling it with the demands of the romance genre. The hero has to be, for lack of a better word, heroic.

In the end, as attractive as the hero, Drum, is, it is the strength of the heroine, Foley, that makes the book work. Because as a reader I could empathise with her struggles with Drum's homelessness (and other non-Drum issues), I found the relationship believable.

If you're looking for a diferent kind of romance, "Inconsolable" is a good choice. Don't blame me if you get hooked on Ainslie's books!

5.0 out of 5 stars A New Ainslie Paton book? Yes Please! 8 September 2015
By paddlefoot1397 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A new story from Ainslie Paton? Woo hoo! Over the past year or so, Ms Paton has quickly become one of my "would read if she wrote the takeaway menus" authors.

Inconsolable has Ms Paton back at her contemporary romance best.

When Foley climbs down into the cave on the cliff to move the homeless man to somewhere safer, she never thought it would the one thing she did that day that would change her life.

Oh man, what a difference a day makes! Drum is not what either Foley or I expected. He's not your regular, everyday homeless man.

There was just something that I couldn't help but instantly like about Drum. I knew that there was something beneath the surface, knew that whatever his secret was, that he couldn't truly be that man... could he?

Our main bad boy in Inconsolable is Foley's boss, Gab. She is out to cause trouble, but at the end of the day, she is what she is, and you knew what you were getting, and you hoped, at the end of the day, that she was going to get what was due her.

However, the person that I ended up disliking more than the intended bad guy, was Foley's best friend, Nat. I know, right? How could I dislike the best friend??

Now, it may just be me, but I didn't feel that Nat deserved to hold the "best friend" card. While yes, I could understand some of her actions and words towards Foley, I also felt that she pretty much disregarded Foley, her thoughts and feelings on Drum.

I loved the air of secrecy that surrounds Drum. Little by little we learned more about him - and my heart just melted for him more and more.

Once again, Ms Paton has delivered an all-encompassing story which I couldn't help but lose myself in - and didn't want to be found!

I look forward to what she brings us next.

I find so much magic in Ainslie's writing, and I know she has a dedicated fan base that do too. If you haven't ever tried one of Ainslie's books, please give them a go. She is prolific and a search for her work at your e-book store will throw up a lot of possibilities. I'm sure there will be something that interests you, and might make you a big fan too.

I tried to explain to someone, how moved and enthralled I am by every word that Ainslie Paton uses to tell her stories, but I couldn't find the explanation that could do it justice.
My suggestion is to settle yourself in a comfortable chair and lose yourself in this lovely book
