The Writing Rose

Romance fiction in most genres are my favourite reads. Having travelled a fair bit in my misspent years, I'm now a solo-mum to a VERY energetic and adventurous little one and I've turned my spare time into reliving some past travel adventures and expanding on them to write entertaining (hopefully) works of fiction. Maybe they'll be published, maybe not. Either way I'm enjoying where my imagination can take me.


Unsurpassed - Charity Parkerson Wow, The opening scenes are VERY hot, so be prepared. I was really drawn into Aubree’s world quickly and wanted to learn more about these two men, Max and Ryan. Although once Drew hit the scene I could tell it was all over for them, and that Drew was winning her heart. He had to work at it, and I’m glad that he did. I appreciated that, while this is an erotic romance, Drew made the effort to seduce Aubree with dates and banter.

I felt Aubree’s hurt at being betrayed and how she was drawn to Drew who made her laugh. The tug at her heart at losing her two best friends would have stung deep and being a strong person, she managed to work through it. Although the drama they caused her in private had Drew fuming when he found out.

Charity’s writing style is easy and a pleasure to read. The characters start to jump off the page and take on a life of their own. However, I would have liked a little more of the interactions with Max and Ryan which where discussed but not written about. The story line for why Max and Ryan had betrayed Aubree’s trust could have been a lot more believable if it was fleshed out a little more. I wanted to understand the turmoil that they were going through a little more. It wasn’t until right at the end I found out a bit more about the two men and their own hidden desires and demons, but I’m still not sure why they are ex-marines and where this fits in.

If those questions had been answered this would have been a 5 star rating, but it’s still a great read. I thoroughly enjoyed the mix of mix of erotic and emotional scenes.

Unsurpassed would be perfect for those that love realistic and very hot sex with their romance — just as I do, mixed with an engaging storyline. I learnt a few things about MMA that I didn’t know before.[b:Unsurpassed|21802351|Unsurpassed (No Rival, #1)|Charity Parkerson|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1396234538s/21802351.jpg|41059355]
