***********************Fly Girl’s Review of Liv by Kelsie Rae***********************
I was surprised by how good this book was for a first-time author. Kelsie is quite the storyteller. The story had a great amount of emotion and was well thought out.
Liv and Luke’s story is very intense. He is completely lost in her while she is dealing with the untimely death of her husband and all the changes in her life.
I love how Luke is “The Liv Whisperer” in the story. It shows just how close they were as kids, and how much he truly knew, observed, and loved her from the get-go of the story. Her writing was well thought out to account for the lack of knowledge we have of her relationship with her husband even though he dies in the first scene. Now, I can’t vouch for the details of the pregnancy, but from NICU Nurse’s perspective as a mother and a nurse, they are accurate. I’ll have to take her word for that, but overall, it seemed plausible. The relationships show a great amount of detail that give them a life of their own. Luke is close to his sister and his parents, which is a change from the other books I’ve been reading lately where the parents aren’t involved, or the characters are trying to defy them. This is a much better portrayal of most homes these days, I’d like to think.
I would definitely recommend Kelsie’s work to people who want a novel in the style of Samantha Chase and Stacy Finz. Don’t get excited if you’re looking for a little sex because obviously, she’s pregnant, and there isn’t any in this one. With that note, it makes the story better because Kelsie doesn’t distract us with things like that. So please be sure to pick up her latest and watch for her next book, BREEZY, coming soon.
Fly Girl’s Rating: 4.5 out of 5 propellers!!
Kelsie prides herself on writing straight from her own heart, which is how she fell into sweet contemporary romance. She’s a sucker for a love story with all the feels. When she’s not chasing words for her next book, you will probably find her reading or, more likely, playing with her “monsters”.
She adores chocolate, photography, baking, chick flicks, and running. And now that she’s actively pursuing her writing dreams, she’s set her sights on someday finding the self-discipline to not eat an entire batch of cookies in one sitting.
