Shygirl: Reading After Midnight

I will read anything I can get my hands on. Seriously.

 Most books I read are reviewed for Harlequin Junkie, but I'll have an occasional independent or author requested review that I'll post.

It All Comes Down To Timing...

Anything for You (The Blue Heron Series) - Kristan Higgins

“I don’t want anyone but you,” he said, lips moving against her skin. “Stop telling me to find someone else.”

 

Anything for You was a touching love story of two people whose timing was unfortunately always off. Written by one of the most solid romance writers out there today, Kristan Higgins, I was charmed and put through the emotional wringer right along with Connor and Jessica.

 

One of the things that I admire most about Higgins’ writing is that she has a knack for finding the perfect balance between dealing with serious issues while keeping a current of humor winding through her stories. I think Anything for You was a prime example. The subject matter was a range from Fetal Alcohol Syndrome to poverty to cheating spouses and much more. But on the other side was the fun ‘twinsy bond’ between Connor and his twin sister Colleen, as well as the comical critters everyone seemed to have in their households. And it worked exceedingly well with the way this book was set up.
