"Sometimes, she would look in the mirror just to point out the little lines to me. I told her they were my love-lines. As they would deepen, so would my love for her." ~ pg. 50
If only finding your true love was simple as reading between the lines! Single mother, Fordham Price, juggles her job, ten-year-old daughter and mother. She would love to be in a relationship but who has the time? Especially since Fordham is stepping in for a pregnant co-worker. She is tasked with delivering the company's reality read.
Everything happens for a reason! It was divine timing for Fordham to discover a submission from a widower. His words catch her attention and gives all the feels. She wants a love like this! But like many modern working women today—myself included—is it possible?
"I'm celebrating love. It is so much better the fourth time around." ~ pg. 6
First of all, let us admire the cover. It is definitely the most modern cover I've seen in a while. It features what almost every woman carries in her handbag daily: iPhone, iPad/tablet, eyeglasses and a cute shade of lipstick. Good look!
Every part of a book is important. From the book cover to the carefully worded synopsis to the names chosen. It has an impact on the reader. Unfortunately, it was hard for me to adjust to the main character's name. I stumbled as I read along because while Fordham is a unique name for a fictional character, it does not roll off the tongue or match the femininity of her personality.
I did however like the romantic misadventures of web-crawlers and funny submissions. It gave the story a light comical feel with the balance of seriousness. So I forced myself to finish reading to see if, or when, it would hook me in. Nothing in particular stood out after reading the last page. But do not let this discourage you from reading Love-Lines. It may be the kind of slower paced contemporary romance novel you like to read in between intense books.
