Lush by Chris Adonn


When past and present collide at a speed date of all places, Julia Kinkaid does what she does best; she heads for the nearest exit. Only Michael Winthrop has other plans for her. He wants to pick-up where they left off, as friends. Only she never saw him as just a friend, he was the guy she dreamed of marrying one day.

Seven years ago, when Julia broke his heart, Michael tried to move on and as far as anyone could tell, he did. He built a life for himself that most men would call paradise. But now, seeing Julia again, he’s realising that a future with her is still the only thing he ever wanted out of life.

The Review:

Lush (Love Story #1)

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the first book from Author Chris Adonn (maybe because it is her first romance) that I have had the privilege of reading, but I'm sure it will not be the last.

There are some really fun moments that had me laughing out loud, some hot, steamy scenes and a happy ending... What more can you ask for in a romance?

Go out and get your copy and check it out for yourself.

The bio:

If Chris Adonn were to write up her own “short biography” it would sound something like this — since she is in fact the one writing this bio, but she’ll stick to the third person, as she fancies it her right as a writer:

She lives on a little farm in rural South Africa and she considers it ablessing and a curse. The blessing comes in the form of clean air, sweet water that flows through and aquifer below her feet, clear night skies filled with stars, and peace and quite whenever she needs it. The curse lies in the fact that the roads surrounding her home are very long and all dirt. During a good storm this can mean being stuck at home for weeks on end. Yet this perceived curse is yet another blessing, because that’s when she finds the besttime to write.

She has worked as a graphic designer and a fine artist, but neither of these vocations has ever inspired the same level of passion as writing does.

The characters she writes about are as real to her as... well as real as make-believe friends can be. She’s that kid who never outgrew her imaginary buddies. They stop by daily and tell her stories that she narrates for them—a quirk she shares with many a writer.

She loves her family, but prefers to keep them and their lives private. She adores her extended family of 2 dogs, 2 cats, 2 lovebirds, and 2 Budgies. They, and her flesh-and-blood friends, are the ones who make sure she keeps a decent schedule and does not get lost in the worlds she writes about.
