Our Review

“You’re the craziest woman I’ve ever met.”

We absolutely love Barbara Elsborg here at TB. Her range is amazing, her writing fabulous as she makes us cry, laugh and swoon in equal measure. We’ve devoured her romances be they contemporary or paranormal or sometimes even both with an otherworldly feel.

Before we start this review we have to get our issue with the cover for this story out of the way. We dislike this cover immensely and see it as a perfect example of why readers may be turned off buying a book. It’s not only a turn off, it also completely misrepresents this story. The characters look nothing like what they look like in the book and some may even say this cover reflects a couple in the medical profession, her being a nurse and him a doctor. Wrong! This cover is wrong in every aspect possible and whoever designed it and gave it the go ahead clearly didn’t read this story or in our opinion didn’t care. Its pure laziness and disregard for the Author and potential readers. This was a beautiful and unique romance that deserved much better.  Yes, this sounds harsh but it’s a side of the book industry we feel very strongly about as do the majority of readers. This cover will not sell this book in fact it may even hinder sales. Covers are important no matter what anyone says and should at least reflect the character descriptions and or aspects of story. They should invite the reader in not turn them off. We hope readers look past this mistake or injustice and take a chance on a beautiful romance.

So, cover aside how did we feel about Kiss Interrupted? The writing was typical Barbara Elsborg, what with her attention to detail, her humour and her quirkiness. We were immediately intrigued as we got drawn into a bit of a thrilling mystery with an unlikely romance forming in the midst of it. We definitely have to say that readers will have to suspend beliefs, let go of their rational side and just believe in the romance and somewhat otherworldly nuances. The synopsis, the cover and the marketing tag does not reflect this story so some may be turned off by this fact.

“I want to remember….I want to remember every tiny thing.”

We loved Libby and Fyn, two completely contrasting characters, each with their own issues and complicated pasts shaping who they are today. Libby’s was particularly intriguing and thrillingly scary! Their story was exciting and mysterious as this Author sure did flesh out her characters and we completely felt their connection. Also, we were dying to find out just what the hell was going on. The story did taper off towards halfway and began to drag so we have to admit we were tempted to put it down and call it a day as it seemed that we weren’t really getting anywhere. However, an overwhelming need to find out how the story would unfold kept us going and we’re glad we didn’t put it down as the last forty percent or so was brilliant. It really picked up and our book hearts soared with the emotion and passion. Again, we have to say we that we were not expecting it to go where it did but we accepted it with an open mind. We just wish there’d been a more even balance and correct representation of this story in cover, synopsis and marketing.

‘Their last first kiss had to be perfect because he wanted to remember this moment for as long as he could, hold it in his head and his heart.’

There’s no question that Barbara Elsborg is an original which is what we love about her and her stories. She can write anything with her sense of humour, her passion and her knack of the ultimate *surprise* she often manages to weave into her books. Also, her characters always have something quirky about them making them completely lovable.

Synopsis

Not his type, not her type, but when faced with the inescapable and inexplicable, all they have is each other.

Not his type.

It should have been simple. A temporary move from London to Leeds to manage the office while a boss is sick, but as Fyn watches the workforce enjoy a summer party, he feels more than guilt over the looming downsizing.

He’s tasked with making many happy people redundant, and that includes Libby Pasternak, who has her face painted as a tiger, wears boots on a summer’s day, has an ear full of piercings and is so distracting, she almost bowls him out at cricket. Unthinkable.

Most conflicting of all, why is he even thinking about seizing the moment, instead of his rule concerning getting involved with employees—especially with one so not in his league?

Not her type.

Libby likes blond surfer dudes with big dreams and even bigger smiles, not a guy like stick-in-the-mud Mr. Sensible, otherwise known as Fyn Marlowe. Then he gives her a lift home from the office party, and she finally has to admit to herself the depth of her Grand Canyon-sized crush. One that chokes itself to death two days later, when he erroneously accuses her of screwing up a major account. She may be a bit different, but her work is always the best.

Their blazing row resolves with her getting sacked, ending any chance of exploring where things could have led.

His type, her type—none of the preconceived ideas of a perfect partner matters when the world—literally—comes crashing down.
