Oblique – Adrian J. Smith

Oblique - AJ SmithMy first novel by this author, and an interesting read.

Classic Trad Romance, well written, with a ‘different’ story, so it kept my interest. The characters are well drawn, the plot well worked and AJ’s writing style makes for a very enjoyable read… with the added bonus of an excellent erotic imagination.

Kara and Tiny have histories that make any new relationship a balancing act and a compromise. Kara is particularly shut off and scared to risk.. her pregnancy and her history conspiring to make her feel extremely vulnerable. Despite her mixed feelings and mixed messages, the pair have a highly charged sex life which makes this romance border on erotica at times.

There’s a twist in the tale that becomes obvious to the reader relatively early, adds the drama to the plot and is well done. Personally not my cup of tea, something I find alien, but that is purely a subjective reaction to the curve-ball AJ throws us.

Overall a good read by a genuinely good writer.
