(Book) Waiting For Spring by RJ Keller

64

This is a hard book for me to review. The plot, the story, the execution of this books is phenomenal. My problem was the heavy use of the F-word, not only in the sex-scenes, but also just in the everyday language. I should say that I drop the F-bomb myself – and on a very regular basis. But it seemed to be so over-used in this book that it was distracting.

I also really would love to share this book with my mother. It’s a book she could really enjoy and appreciate, but I know the language would complete turn her off. She doesn’t mind cursing, but this was too much. I think a little cursing adds color, but this was too much.

Now, back to the story… I loved the way it unfolded. I think you knew the ending (at least I did), how it had to end and then end again, but the path to get us there an amazing roller-coast ride. This is one of the best independent books I’ve read in a very long time. The setting, seasons, it’s all perfectly well done. This author should feel very good about their work. Tremendous.

All proceeds are going to a domestic abuse charity. I actually got this book for free from the author’s website (I believe), but went and bought it for that reason.

I really wish I could recommend that everyone read this book, and if you can handle lots of cursing, it’s well worth the read – if you are offended by it, then skip this one.
