When I started reading, I used the Winklevoss twins in Social Network Armie Hammer he reminds me of Brendan Fraser who happens to be in the movie Mrs Winterbourne to play the Grimaldi twins in my head.
I m a sucker for romance stories about a wallflower getting involved with popular or affluent guys, which unfortunately rarely ever happens in real life That s why we the girls all love this kind of story.
So Kelsey Fontez fell in love with Seth Grimaldi, but then fate has other plans and Kelsey was left all alone to raise their child When she finally decided to introduce her son to the Grimaldis, she knew that her life would never be the same again Not to mention, Scott, the other twin is a living and breathing reminder of her dead boyfriend.
Another complication in her life is the growing, er sensual tension between this other Grimaldi twin Somehow, one of them was oblivious of old, suppressed feelings that seem to reignite everytime they are in the same room Scott and Kelsey s relationship is a rollercoaster of passionate, secret encounters that would make any conservative girl blush We wouldn t have to call the love scenes in this book steamy for nothing I almost forgot that an experimental drug also play a role in their story.
The plot may seem familiar but the standing issues being faced by Kelsey as a single mom is reality I m glad the author wrote her as headstrong and independent but her personal struggle with her choices especially concerning her son, can sometimes be debilitating for her This is what makes her flawed in our eyes and all we could do is sympathize with her The writing is also clever because in every chapter we witness their story, alternately, through their eyes This what makes their romance so affecting because we seem to be inside their heads and not just mere spectators.
This is a wonderful debut novel by KZ Riman It s actually a first of a series and I would love to learnabout her writing by reading the other Kissing series.
A story about family and falling in love again in the most unlikely time and unlikely place, this debut novel of K.
Z Riman is definitely a page turner It centers on the responsibility and maturity of a mother, raising a child on her own after the death of Seth, her boyfriend After six years, Kelsey was persuaded to live with her almost in laws for the sake of her son.
I like the attitude of Kelsey Fontez, a headstrong and independent woman, yet she longed to be loved and be cared for She made herself believe that she hated Scott, Seth s twin brother While she saw Seth as her knight in shining armor, Scott was a bully, a scoundrel, always ready to torture her every opportune time Scott Grimaldi, the playboy but theseductive twin I found him annoying on the first few chapters of the book but as his character began to unfold, I began to understand why he acted the way he did around his parents and Kelsey I have always believed that there s hope for men who have bad habits and vices, and though this is a work of fiction, Scott serves as an example Love broke his wall of hostility and healed his past hurts He proved to have a heart that is capable of loving others, as well.
Though there were steamy scenes, I commend K.
Z for not going overboard I personally despise sex scenes which are not necessary to advance the plot but in this novel, aside from the fact that it wasn t written in a laborious way, it was enough to let the readers feel the love and passion between two people who kept on hiding their feelings for one another.
Over all, this story has depth and is filled to the brim with passion I like K.
Z s writing style It s a simple and quick read story yet powerful enough to put me on the edge of my seat Will I recommend this Definitely a must read for mature readers.
Scott, Seth s twin brother, has always liked Kelsey, even when she was dating Seth Due to financial strain, Kelsey moves herself and her son in with Scott s Mother and Father Who are excited to have their grandson living with them.
The author uses each chapter to go from Kelsey to Scott s points of view, I liked that, We get to see what happens for both characters Most books are from one p.
v , I liked that K.
Z jumped between each character It makes for a great and interesting book.
Scott is the V.
P of his Father s pharmaceutical company Scott helps create a drug that saves a very important person later in the book The company also creates a sex drug which is given to Kelsey, but a member of Scott s company, There is a full chapter all about that.
Scott has some trouble accepting Sean because of his feelings for Kelsey, but luckily by the end of the book he has to deal with Sean first hand, and overcomes his troubles Kelsey goes away to take some much needed medicine to little boys and girls who need it Alicia, Scott s cousin who we meet with her twin brother Keiffer in the beginning of the book, accompanies Kelsey.
I give the book 3 out of 5 hearts The currency used in the book is a creolle, which I have never heard of, nor do I know the convergence to American dollars Also the Genre is Erotica and the Heat Rating is a 4, I do not agree with those Yes there are some sex scenes in the book, but not, in my opinion, racy enough to be considered an erotica book I would only give it a Heat Rating of a 2, due to the sex scenes, I was not that hot Disclaimer I received a complimentary copy of the book from the authorin exchange for an honest review This review is my own opinion and not a paid review.
I wanted you to stay away from me, but theI drove you away, theI wanted you to come back to me I recently joined a writing workshop and was assigned a trope the one that got away I just wished I have read this novel prior to that workshop because Kissing AnotherGrimaldi is a perfect example of two people denying the attraction, losing contact and meeting again after some time due to inevitable circumstances which at the end of the story, to me, seemed cleverly planned out by third parties.
Set in a foreign country called Bovaghn that can not belocated anywhere in the world map , KZ Riman takes the readers to view the world in the perspective of Kelsey Fontez, a widow left with a son she raised on her own for six years and Scott Grimaldi, twin brother of Kelsey s late fianc e and who was known to be a manipulative womanizer or to bluntly put it, the evil half.
The story starts off with Kelsey finally agreeing to see her late fianc e s family to grant her son s wishes to see his grandparents, knowing that he has every right to experience the kind of life she couldn t afford given her circumstances The conflict thickens when Scott gets into the picture, looking every bit like his twin and her son s father, making her longing for a man harder to resist.
On the other hand, Scott, the prodigal son, returns to fulfill his end of the deal that his father made with him One year to take over the company and he s free to chase after his own dreams But the sudden arrival of Kelsey brought a myriad of complications not only to his goals but to the desires he had kept hidden for years And it does not help that Kelsey isdesirable now, leaving him wanting her all the .
Written in words so intricately woven, tugging at heartstrings and or lower, the narrative beautifully paints a picture of how two people who try so hard to stay away from each other only to find themselves gravitating towards one another, the passion growing immensely each time And since this is an erotica, reading this will induce sweating, feeling warm or putting the book down for a couple of minutes or days before picking it back up to continue Enough said.
