A Hearts On Fire Review

THREE STARS--O' Come" is a non-overly Christmas (hooray!) holiday interracial short story of reconciled lovers. Reid works for Cynda's family resort in Colorado. He's still nursing a broken heart years after Cynda chose to live her life and travel instead of settling down with him in Colorado. What he did not know was that Cynda never stopped loving him and even visited Colorado in disguise all of the missed years. But miraculously, these two work out it and in time for Christmas, no less.

There's a predictability factor with these type of stories, so I did not expect to be overly amazed. A romance story like this is like eating comfort food. You know what you are going to get yet it makes you feel good while you have it. So Reid and Cynda restarting their relationship? It was good.

However, there were some issues. Cynda? Other than her illness, she's too perfect. She started a business at sixteen, everyone loves her, she's a track star and an excellent ice skater. She could have went pro she's so talented. She learned to cook at the Le Cordon Bleu...come on already. Readers don't relate to martyrs...at least this one doesn't. Just let her have a few talents, not all of them. She would have been more endearing, I didn't really like her or hate her. She was just a little annoying especially with those tacky wigs.

For someone who didn't want attention to her illness, she sure did bring a lot of attention to herself with those bright wigs and unnecessary antics. And her reasons for being on top during sex...they were a bit on the silly side.

Graham Iler, the resident bad guy...he was obnoxious and failed a little at being a bad guy because you would have expected a supposed professional to be well, professional.

Reid was a standard non-threatening alpha-like male. He loved his woman and wants his woman. Nothing overly special about him. The reasons why Cynda and Reid broke up were weak and silly but these two figured it out at the end. If they never broke up, then there would not be a story. The sex scenes were hot (minus Cynda's silly reasons) and when they made love after Reid found out all of Cynda's secrets-that was the best part of the story.

All in all, a decent story and good mindless fun for an hour or two. But this story is not one you'll remember for years to come." ( )
