The ramblings of things that make me…um, well…me.
Guess what, Hipsters? I am posting a BRAND NEW book review for you today!
I’m not sure why, but this one was difficult to write…and I LOVED the book!
Today’s Book Review is for WORK IN PROGRESS by Christina Esdon. Ms. Esdon has already been on the blog as part of “The Random 5…”. We share an affinity for things musical and…uh…handsome…he he he…if you want to know more about her, check out the interview.
This post is all about the review, so here you go…
WORK IN PROGRESS by Christina Esdon
Sometimes you read a book and you think, “Eh, this book was okay.” Other times, you think, “I really enjoyed reading this book.” Or maybe even “This book was fantastic!”. For me, WORK IN PROGRESS by Christina Esdon was the latter of the three. It made me smile, laugh, cry, giggle, and even blush…yes, blush…read it, you’ll see why.
The story is the first of a series by Ms. Esdon, introducing us to the character Dr. Reese Morgan. Something in her past has moulded the way she has lead her life so far. So much so, that when Josh Montgomery “runs” into her life , she pushes him away time and time again. Talk about playing hard to get. Except the thing is, she really isn’t playing. She doesn’t want to be in a serious relationship. And Josh…well…Josh kind of does. Along with Reese and Josh, we meet a whole cast of characters that you instantly learn to love and want to know more about.
The book takes us through some ups and down. Hook ups and Break ups. It’s like the Circle of Life! Ha!
I read most of WORK IN PROGRESS while walking on a treadmill, which is not an easy feat, however, it made the time zoom by and when I realized it was already an hour, I wanted to keep going because I didn’t want to stop reading. I almost fell off the treadmill once during a certain scene that…um…caught me off guard…for reasons. 😉
I do have to be honest and tell you that I was able to get an advanced copy of WORK IN PROGRESS to read. I was also able to read bits and pieces as she was writing it. It has been wonderful to watch this story transform into the final product. It does not change the fact that it is a great story and a great start to the series that you would be amiss to read.
I, personally, look forward to reading more of her work. And more about Dr. Reese…
