Smolder - Melina Morel I'm not really sure what I think about Smolder to be honest. Morel's writing is very much like a story telling and not a story "show and tell", if that makes sense. We're told everything that is going on and while I don't have a problem with the storyline or the characters, it does give off a detached sort of feeling. The story itself is intriguing, but...there's a lot of words. The relationship between Catherine and Ian is nothing I haven't seen in the previous two novels. It's almost as if the novel is suppose to be a romance, but the story didn't want to be. That the sex scenes are forced into the story, which results in small, repetitive scenes that are really easy to skim through. Overall, Smolder is an interesting read, just don't expect to get captivated by it; don't expect to get lost in the book and lose track of time. The novel is good, but it was lucky I was in a reading mood. I could very easily see myself setting this book down in order to do something else without pause. I would definitely come back to it, but it just really doesn't inspire my imagination or desire to be a part of the characters lives. Smolder is one of those novels I would recommend getting at the library before deciding to purchase.To read my full review, click here
