Book review - Snapdragon by Kilby Blades

Book review of Snapdragon by Kilby Blades

I really enjoyed this fast paced novel. The premise of the story is that a man and woman meet, both are extremely attracted to one another, but agree, due to their high flying careers, to make it casual. Using the word 'Snapdragon,' they can break it off at any point.

Darby is a well rounded character, mainly because the story is told from her point of view, but I found it more difficult to warm to Michael. I felt like I wanted to know the characters more than I feel I did to be able to understand their insecurities. However, the plot was extremely enjoyable and I thoroughly enjoyed reading the novel. The story is well written and superbly plotted. I feel the subtitle could have been left off to leave me wondering more about the ending, however there is a sequel told from Michael's perspective which still leaves me wanting to find out more..

Without giving too much away, the story leaves you second guessing throughout whether the word is going to be said! Definitely worth a read and I shall be looking out for the sequel to answer some of my questions!

Buy the novel here:

The rules are simple: unattached companionship, toe-curling sex and a clean break whenever it ends. Darby’s groundbreaking medical research will launch her into career stardom. Michael’s status as an architectural wunderkind will send him to a far-flung locale. Either one can say the single word that will break it off: Snapdragon. But soul-deep sex is just the beginning. Michael becomes a fierce ally against her misogynist boss, a light to chase away the shadow of her notorious father, and the antidote to her crushing loneliness. And Darby must fight hard not to fall in love. After all, choosing love over ambition is the one thing she said she’d never do. And their wayward feelings may not change Michael's endgame. So she’ll walk the tightrope of their relationship, even though she fears the fall may kill her. For people like them, love doesn’t always conquer all. GET READY TO FALL IN LOVE WITH SNAPDRAGON Deeply meaningful, desperately sexual, and inevitably bittersweet, Snapdragon deals with the quandary of choosing love over career, the weight of adulthood and the complexity of modern work-life. It rewrites the book on what a 21st century relationship should look like and keeps the reader wondering how it will end.
