BOOK RELEASE *** Carson by Melissa Foster ***

She needs to move forward with her life, 
but how can she when Carson still owns her heart?

Bad Boys After Dark #3
Melissa Foster
Releasing July 11, 2017
World Literary Press

Second chances really do exist…

As the founder of a multimillion-dollar international security business, Carson Bad exposes secrets for a living. He knows better than to forge relationships built on them. But for years he did just that with his best friend, and secret lover, Tawny Bishop. She brought a sense of calm and understanding to his life–in and out of the bedroom. Until one fateful night when a knock at the door changed everything.

Tawny is no longer a naive college student. She’s a sought-after perfumer living in Paris. She has plenty of resources at her fingertips, and lots of lonely nights to think about the only man she’s ever loved–the one she ran away from all those years ago. She needs to move forward with her life, but how can she when Carson still owns her heart?

Maybe showing up in the middle of the night unannounced isn’t the best route to unraveling the past and figuring out her future, but Tawny has played it safe for ten long years, and it’s only made her long for the man she never should have walked away from. Now she’s back in Carson’s life, and he’s determined not to make the same mistake twice. If only he knew what that mistake was…

My Review 3.5 out of 5 stars

I would almost describe this book as sweet not as in a 'clean' romance (because it has some very steamy scenes) but one that doesn't have a lot of angst or conflict. I love a second-chance romance but usually because there has been a lot of misunderstanding that takes some time to get over, or there is hurt to move past. Carson and Tawny picked up their relationship far too easily for my reading tastes. I spent most of the book waiting for some huge catastrophe to happen, but when all we got was a very brief storm in a teacup that was quickly dealt with.

The writing was good quality, the book was easy to read and the narrative flowed smoothly whilst the editing had been done to a high standard. The characters were well written , believable and most importantly likeable and I have no issues at all with either Carson or Tawny in this book. I felt the passion between them and totally believed in their love. For me what let this down was pace - they got back together too quickly and so smoothly that it felt that, beyond the blurb, there was no real plot.  I needed more drama and angst, more will they/won't they, more conflict and emotion.

I did still enjoy the book though.
