Title: The Fortuitous Pen
Author: Cara Addison
Publisher: Siren Publishing
I received a copy of this ebook in exchange for an honest review.
This is the first of Cara Addison’s books I’ve read and it’s also the first time I’m reading about the characters of Brett and Austin.
From a few chapters in, I became enthralled with Brett and Austin, they were a fun couple and their love scenes were amazing. The story focuses on Austin moving in with Brett and getting started on her writing career which is taking off. As the story progresses, the couple finds themselves contemplating taking the next step in their relationship. They also find their lives thrown for a loop by the reappearance of Brett’s estranged father, who’s come to make amends with his son.
Overall, I like the story and I thought it was fun. Brett and Austin are the type of couple you’d want to hang out with. One of favorite parts in the book is when the couple goes on a trip to Paris. And another favorite part of mine is when they’re snowed in with Brett’s friend and one of his clients from the office.
My only critique of the book is I felt like it went by too fast. I would’ve loved to seen more interaction with Brett and his father as they try to repair their relationship instead of Brett just realizing it’s time to forgive him. Also, there was a part in the book where Austin’s in Paris and a waiter flirts with her, she finds herself drawn to him yet doesn’t act on her feelings. I felt like that could’ve been explored a little more instead of just ending it with her returning to New York the next day.
Aside from that, this was a fun story and I’m curious to read more of Brett and Austin’s relationship.
