An Alisa Review: The Romantic by Elodie Parkes


Rating: 3 stars out of 5

When Ethan Goss decides to ease a broken heart by finding a new apartment, he never dreams that he’ll also find the love of his life.

Handsome Luke Kirby loves books so when he finds boxes of old and beautiful tomes in a dusty shop, he can’t resist buying them. To his delight one of them contains what he hopes will bring an end to his loneliness and heartache. As he prepares to cast an ancient prayer-spell to the god of love, across town Ethan Goss decides that moving to a new apartment will ease his broken heart.

With the help of an eccentric real estate agent, gorgeous Ethan goes to a viewing in the block where Luke lives.

When Luke meets Ethan in the lobby, it’s the start of a passionate love affair.

Fate hasn’t finished with the two handsome men—will true happiness evade them both?

Alright, this was an interesting premise and executed pretty well but it just seemed off to me.  I liked Luke’s openness to find love though how he felt so desperate for it after only a couple months was a little desperate and Ethan was kind of the same.

They both had an instant attraction and pretty much jumped in together.  I don’t know but I didn’t feel it, I get that they were pretty much meant to be soul mates but it just fell into place way too easily.  I always love a happy ending but it just came so fast it didn’t work in my head.

The cover art by Angela Waters is nice and I liked the visual of the character together.
