It Started With a Scandal by Julie Anne Long
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
*sigh* my heart is so full of these two. What can I say… I laughed when they laughed, ached when they ached. My heart caught in my throat; my toes curled. I felt their love grow one step at a time… and it was a strong love, it leaped off the pages and demanded to be felt. The imagery was perfect, so many words so carefully chosen were written exactly the way things needed to be said… simple and to the point, vivid and real.
In all, this book is what every romance should be at heart… a love brought on, not by simple lust, though the attraction was most certainly there, but also through respect and admiration and written in such a way that you cannot help but feel it, too.
Thank you, Ms. Long.
