“Expectation is the root of all heartache.” William Shakespeare
Keaton Harris always thought he would be reporting from the front lines as a hard-hitting news reporter. He never expected to become a best-selling romance writer. But the job definitely has its perks, like the long line of ladies who are eager to become his muse for a night.
He doesn’t expect to meet Quinn Ryan at a book convention. He doesn’t expect to be taken with her so quickly. She is beautiful. Smart. Quiet…and totally giving him the cold shoulder.
Quinn has no interest in becoming a Keaton Harris groupie, no matter how hot he is. She learned a long time ago that playboys make dangerous playthings. But when he proves to be more than she expected she finds herself weakening to his charms.
One week. That’s all it was supposed to be. One week to have an adventure, to be someone else. It was never supposed to go any further than that.
Maybe that Shakespeare guy was on to something.
Thank you Shae Scott for sculpting such an organic story of love. Finally we have two beautiful people not suffering from abuse, no whips involved, no dysfuntionality, no disrespect intentionally inflicted towards each other. Rather we have two souls stumbling upon each other unexpectedly finding love tethering their hearts.
“He took his time, kissing me like it was a lost art. And I was beginning to think that it was, because no one had ever kissed me the way that he did, so completely, so thoroughly. He could speak a thousand words inside of a single kiss. He could write each one across my heart and brand me as his and he could do it effortlessly. “
So many points made this book work for me. Quinn and Keaton were so well suited for each, two beings bringing out the best in each other, accepting each other’s imperfections and merits, their fears and bravery, their shared passion for each other – simply put they just worked together. Loved the fact Keaton was forced to woo Quinn. The author and reader hook was fabulous along with Quinn’s initial resistance. Scott molded a narrative demonstrating loves demands, expectations, trials and tribulations matched with joys. She laid out the vulnerability and risks you must put forth in order to reap amours benefits. An intricate and complex emotional journey of two people navigating love.
“She pulled me under with each kiss. She demanded more without ever asking for a thing. It was so simple, yet so complicated.”
I had no idea what the ultimate outcome for the couple would be, glad Scott kept me on my toes. All the complications parallel with simplicity’s will allow readers to connect, anyone who’s ever encountered pure devotedness will find themselves swept up with Keaton and Quinn as they master this crazy thing called love. Romance buffs will NOT want to miss reading On Paper.
