While You Were Writing Virginia Nelson Contemporary Romance Heat Rating: 3

Bestselling author and infamous town hermit Radcliffe McQueen knows what he likes, what he doesn’t, and refuses to pretend social niceties. Particularly with a red-hot mess of a woman who’s taken it upon herself to smooth his rough edges. She thinks she can change him? Bring it. He’s more than willing to teach her the wisdom of doing things his way. Besides, it’ll distract him from the horror of facing a blank page. Review: An author and an artist came together through fate or just plain stubbornness. Two lost troubled souls in need of being found, now the question is, do they want to

be found? Radcliffe brought out emotions and memories that Sheri thought were long forgotten. His eyes searched into her soul and made her feel naked and vulnerable. But would Radcliffe’s bad attitude turn forced polite attitude drive Sheri away with its falseness and lies or would Radcliffe help Sheri instead of the other way around. So the question is who is helping whom. Virginia Nelson wrote a book that was difficult to read. I have never taken so long to read a book in my life. The characters were just that, characters. I felt nothing for them; they were just facts on a page. The circumstances that brought them together were unrealistic and made no sense. When they were falling in love, I did not feel it. This book to me was very on the surface. The event that made Radcliffe the way he was does not seem big enough to merit that big of a response and Sheri just had to get over herself, seriously. The only thing I enjoyed about this book is that Radcliffe is an author and Sheri is an artist, my two favorite things in the world, but it did not do it for me in this book. | Reviewer: Nathifa Swan |
