Falling For Emma Book Review


Falling for Emma is a sweet, sensitive and fast paced novella! 

Doesn’t the first line sum it up really nicely? Does it not make you want to read it? You should read it!

It is a delight to read and it is based in France, I am a big, big France fan; maybe it is all the love and romance talk I heard as a young girl and maybe because France is synonymous with romance I enjoyed it immensely.

I finished the book from start to finish in one sitting; it was a funny, interesting and perfect for a novella. Alix knows what a good novella is all about. This is the first book I have read by her and it will not be the last. Looking forward to reading the other books in this series.

Cyril may be scarred and grumpy but his character speaks volumes, he doesn’t try the ‘pity card’ or become the inaccessible grumpy monster. It is kindness and indulgence for his friends when they set him up with his music booth and his attitude towards those who look out for him even though he is a blind guy make him a winner. He is a singer is an added perk 😉

Only one thing I found a bit odd was that if he knew Emma/Laura since high school, he should have recognised her by her voice at least. But I am no judge of how a blind person perceives those around him so I agree he could have been fooled.

Emma is the sweet, girl next door and she has been in love with Cyril forever. She gets close to him by faking to be someone else and when he finds out………she has a hard time convincing him of her motives. Her heart is in the right place and they both have great chemistry.

It was fun to read and quick enough to be read on your commute or even a week night for a good read.

Teasers:

“Oh, how she loved that unrestrained laugh of his. It was better than a bowl of rum raisin ice cream or a scented hot bath in the middle of January or an afternoon on the beach with a great book. It was simply the best thing in the world…”  

“He could no longer deny how he felt about her. Not just the part where he craved her right down to his bones, but also the part where he had let her take up residence in his empty heart and was still reeling from the glow that filled it…”


“She drew her mouth away and took a ragged breath. 
When Cyril leaned in to renew the kiss, she planted her hands on his chest and pushed gently. “Let me look at you for a moment.”
He straightened and gave her a panty-dropping smile.
His unseeing eyes were as handsome as ever. His complexion had darkened with desire, and the bulging muscles of his chest flexed under her touch. Through the thin cotton of his T-shirt and through the air between them, she could feel the heat emanating from his body. There was something feline—graceful and hard—about his posture.
Like a wild cat before a bound.
He was magnificent…”
