This month's book is All They Need, Nov11 1742, by Sarah Mayberry. Yes, it's another romance novel but I like to read the fluff every once and awhile too. Although the storyline isn't all fluffy and lighthearted.
It takes place in Australia, during the winter months, but I don't feel bad for the characters because they can still wear shorts during the day. Especially when I look out of my window and see snow on the roof tops.
The storyline involves one of the main characters, Flynn Randall, who has a parent who is diagnosed with alzheimer's. Flynn is an only child and having to take over the family business, much earlier than anticipated.
The other main character, Melanie Porter, left an abusive marriage and is dealing with the emotional aftermath of that relationship. She's starting a new life and romance is not a part of it.
The result is of course the two of them coming together and realizing that they can depend on each other through both of their hard times.
I personally could do without the juicy sex scenes. I find myself skipping over them. I get what's going on, the description isn't necessary. The storyline in All They Need is pretty good on it's own. But I guess that's what sells in this genre of writing.
I give All They Need 3.5 out of 5.
