"Dealing with catching unexpected feelings when this was just supposed to be a mutual satisfaction of needs was not in the game plan." ~ 3%
How many of us women spend our adult life looking for "the one" perfect guy? Devorah Lee certainly has. But maybe he is already in her life. Enter Ellis Taylor III, the black George Clooney who also happens to be the brother of an ex-boyfriend. As much as Devorah wants to deny their chemistry, Ellis tries even harder to show he is Mr. Right.
It is the giddiest of feelings when I see a bookheart's work in print. I broke into the widest grin and cheered soon as I saw that Nicole Falls published her debut novella, Adore You. It takes diligence to commit to writing and self-publishing. So kudos to my bookheart, Nicole Falls, for writing a romance story so tempting to read that I broke my literary promise of No Romance Books in 2017. It was well worth it.

Adore You is recommended for fans of romance. It has a feel good tone with the right amount of lusty scenes. The dialogue between main characters, Devorah (Bee) and Ellis (El), is like listening to a conversation among close friends. There is some slang—and a couple grammatical errors—but not so much that it distracts the reader. The story of companionship still drew me in. In fact, a couple scenes had me adding my own two cents to the pages of my Kindle while reading. (Surely I am not the only one who talks to fictional characters). By the middle of the novella, I was so rooting for Bee and El's relationship that I read nonstop. What fun, relatable characters!
I am ashamed that it took me months to finally read this quick good read. Now I am looking forward to more by this author...and you should too.
