My mind has been all over the place but it's not the books fault, (at least I don't think it is) there's just been a lot going on in my life. I've read a few of Freya Barkers books, they've all been about mature couples which is a nice change. Although they've also mostly/all been romantic suspense which I have to be really in the mood for, that might be 1 of the reasons my minds been pinging off the walls. Still Freya's books are worth looking at.
Reminded me a little of that old Brawny commercial, the lumberjack guy… He probably has abs to match, the kind you can bounce quarters off. Try and do that off mine and you’d need heavy equipment to excavate it.
Sometimes my stubborn drive for independence gets in the way of common sense.
You’re pretty smart for middle-aged, wannabe sideshow headliner.
Freya Barker is my go-to source and rocks it like no other. She is better than the mailman as she consistently delivers superbly written and engaging tales that are each richly laced with a unique and indelible cast of worn, flawed, yet realistically drawn characters, who never fail to ensnare my cold heart. Every-single-time! I have cherished and coveted each and every one of her captivating series. A Change of View was an active, eventful, and insightful tale with mature characters, real-life family issues, and a tattered protagonist in dire need of a fresh start. Written from my favorite dual POV, the premise was solid, the storyline was relevant and well-crafted, and the writing was emotive, keenly observant and cleverly insightful. Yet the endearing and oddly matched characters were the heart and soul of the piece. While we begin with and witness Leelo’s steady growth and I applauded her evolving backbone while facing so many unusual challenges; Roar was a complete and unquestionable delight, I adored him in totality but most of all for his secret words which were nothing short of genius.
An absolutely beautiful story, showing that you are never too old to learn to love yourself, or to venture onto something new. I loved Leelo and that she owned upto her shortfallings and tried to be better because of them, and I loved that Roar was able to look past first impressions and she the woman she was.
