3 feather #bookreview of CHARLIE: CHARLIE by L Sommers
CHARLIE: CHARLIE by L Sommers
***Author’s note*** Mature adult 18+ only.
This novel is a work of fiction and contains strong sexual situations. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
Ralph Stewart, current CEO of Biomask, ., is stepping down from his position to be with his wife who is struggling with lung cancer. Biomask is now in search of a new CEO to take his place.
Charlie Grainger, CFO of Biomask, ., has lived life void of any serious relationship. Playing the field and sewing his wild oats, Charlie has suddenly been put to the test when Ms. Charlie Winters enters Biomask, ., as their new CEO.
Ms. Winters currently owns her own chain of exclusive clubs, but since they are pretty much running on their own, Ms. Winters decided to get back out into the workforce to keep busy. Hence, her new position at Biomask, . Ms. Winters is also being put to the test as she finds herself in the arms of Mr. Grainger. However, will their relationship be able to withstand the secret that Charlie Winters is withholding from him?
This is a very different type of story format, and I applaud L Sommers for writhing outside the box. Two different first person POV’s , but both named Charlie, male: female. Two people who have such an attraction for each other, that it changes their lives. And there’s definitely the steamy, forbidden sex. This is a fun, light, fanciful tale of finding your soul mate.
L Sommers also broke the box by writing in the active voice (present tense), instead of the passive (past tense). Most writers use passive for everything. Unfortunately, the passive voice comes out when we write. It’s just a natural occurrence. I saw too many past tense words being used with present tense and vice-a-versa. I also thought the writing didn’t flow very well and was pretty stilted.
All in all, this was an enjoyable read and a nice way to spend some time so I give it 3 feathers.
