I received a copy of Admiring Ash from the Author for Review Consideration. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.
It shouldn’t be a surprise at this point that I love Anyta Sunday’s books. I was over the moon when I heard that she had a three book series releasing – and I’m very happy to say that all my excitement wasn’t for nothing. Admiring Ash is brilliant and captivating, and a perfect start for the series.
There’s plenty of banter; I loved Ash and River’s first meeting, because of all the banter and hilariousness of the moment. Besides banter, there’s everything a story needs; dynamic characters and relationships, hurt and comfort, family issues and coming to terms with various things. In short, Admiring Ash is a beautiful story. I couldn’t put it down.
I thought this was a Very good start of the ‘love letters’ series. Of course, Anyta Sunday also introduces other characters whom are all intriguing. I enjoyed this book. That said, this book also left a lot out and had some timing things that were baffling. This book needed to be longer or less vague about things. I just have questions.
The book is short and I’m glad that not a lot of time was wasted on the “conflict” part of the romance that’s always there around the 70-80% mark. It was mostly a light, feel-good read and it was also nice to first meet the protagonists of the next two books, Ben and Chance. It set up the atmosphere for the rest of the series in a nice way that makes the reader crave for more. It was fast and light.
Overall, I loved Ash and River and their story kept me hooked. I’ve already read the next two, and I’ll be reviewing the other two soon! I’ve been meaning to review these for awhile, but haven’t really had time!
That’s it for this review! I haven’t been blogging as much recently, I’ve been busy, so this is just a quick review that I’ve been meaning to do for a while. Have you read this book or Series? If so, What did you think of it? Is it on your TBR? Have you read anything else by this author? Tell me in the comments if you agree or disagree with any of this. I’d love to know your opinion.
