Anyone that has read some of my comments in the past, will know that I am innately suspicious of perma-free books. However, this book, which is free, is one of the few times that I believe offering a "freebie" is not only acceptable, it is good marketing practice. The author wants me to purchase her second book in the series. So, the question is; did it work? Will I purchase and read her follow-up book? The answer to that question is an unequivocal YES!
I'm a grumpy, old man; anyone will tell you that, so it takes a great author to pierce my shell of cynicism and make me feel real emotions for a character, in the way I did for Patient Lee's characters; Judy and Robert.
Sharing Her Heart starts off slowly and normally enough in a High School biology class when nerd Judy Carlisle and the unpopular Robert Maitland are forced to become lab partners by a nasty, overbearing teacher. I won't divulge any more of the plot as I would hate to spoil it for anyone. There is a touch of erotica, as well, in this story, which gives it a nice balance between teenage angst and hot, steamy, sex.
I've read some of Patient Lee's stories before and I've always enjoyed them, although most were certainly much more erotic than this little beauty. If you would like to dip your toe in the world of Patient Lee, I would highly recommend choosing Sharing Her Heart, as a kicking off point - REMEMBER, it's free!
This author is rapidly becoming one of my favorites, within this genre and although I do understand, reading the author information in the book, time to commit to writing is always a premium, I would love to see a full-length novel from her. Her writing style is relaxed and easy on the eyes and her characters are real people, with everyday problems and flaws, usually looking for that ultimate goal; happiness and love, but often in some unusual places. If you haven't checked out Patient Lee yet, consider giving her a go. Her work is easy on the mind and the eyes and very enjoyable.
