Honor Jacobs has a dream, and she won’t stop until she achieves it. Dancing is her life, which means she has no time for men. Especially not tattoo artists with hard eyes, and a mouth that has her thinking things she shouldn’t be. Staying as far away from Grey Anderson as possible is the solution to all her problems. Except that’s easier said than done. And no matter how much space she puts between them, it’s never enough. He might think she’s too young, and she might think he’s not the one for her, but their hearts think differently. It’ll all come down to will and determination…she just needs to decide which path she’s destined to take.
I loved Young Love by Janelle Stalder. This is actually book number four in the Bloomfield series. I thought this book was great as a stand alone, and I didn’t feel the need to read the other books to have a better understanding of this one. The story starts with Honor, a ballet dancer whose focus in life is her dancing career. Grey is the hot tattoo artist who she meets when Grey tattoos her friend. Grey also happens to be her neighbor as well as the uncle of one of Honor’s ballet students. So as you can see, they were destined to meet. The chemistry between these two is undeniable and off-the-charts, however, neither one wants to admit it. Grey is not interested in anything serious and finds Honor way too young. Honor thinks she has no time for men because of her dancing career. Fortunately for us, they do end up together and the result is scorching hot. I really liked the easy flow of Janelle’s writing despite the fact that the characters are a bit stereotypical, good girl/bad boy duet. You need to take this book for what it is–a sexy romance between two gorgeous people who fall in love and the hurdles to stay together. Although the characters are pretty young and the story is geared towards a younger crowd, I would throw a word of caution to readers under age due to the mature subject and language. Overall, a hot and steamy romance.
***This book is intended for mature audiences due to strong language and sexual situations***
I’d like to thank Word Slinger for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
