I have to admit it – I’ve loved everything I’ve ever read by Melissa Brayden. Her latest novel ‘Eyes Like Those’ is another beautiful love story that hits all the right notes and has captured my heart. When Isabel Chase realises her dream by getting a job as a staff writer on one of the biggest hits on TV she makes quite an impression on her new boss, Taylor Andrews. The fact that it may be unethical to fall for each other makes them think twice about taking it further. With so much going on with the to show and a ex from hell, things are not going to be easy.
Brayden’ writing is superb, with some amazing lines that say so much in so few words. She doesn’t waste a syllable and has truly mastered the art of sexy, romantic prose. The characters she has imagined for this first story in a new series are fun, fascinating and I warmed to them all. Isabel may have problems believing in herself but once riled she is a force to be reckoned with. I adored Taylor’s caring attitude and capable air and so want to see more of the pair as the series progresses. Isabel’s friends in Venice are wonderful and we learned just enough about them to realise their stories will be just as good. I can’t recommend this book highly enough.
I was given this ARC by Bold Strokes Books and Netgalley in return for an honest review.
