Book Review:
Pre-reading Thoughts:

About ten or so months ago I reviewed Sylvie's first book Incandescently as my very first Xpresso Book Tours book tour. It was a huge step in my career as a reviewer. After my review had been posted, Sylvie contacted me asking me to be her beta reader for this book. I was dumbfounded. I couldn't believe it. I had never beta read for anyone before and I really enjoyed her first book, so I jumped at the opportunity. It was the start of a wonderful friendship. I cannot wait to read this book because the previous two have been absolutely spectacular and I really adore P.O.

Thank you so much to Sylvie for this opportunity and for everything you have done up until this point. I can't wait to see where this book, along with the rest of the GGS's books goes.

Writing Thoughts:

Sylvie has always had talent for writing beautiful books. She adds just enough description in her writing to make it feel as if you are there and just enough description for you to see the vivid surroundings. I absolutely love reading her books for this exact reason. Her books are always a wonder to read. From warm lazy days to snowy cozy days, Sylvie knows just how to pull you into her world. The dialogue is sweet with romance and a touch of acidity with reality.

Plot Thoughts:

I was on a constant rollercoaster with this book. One moment I am on a high from the romance and the next I am sitting in shock from what just happened. Sylvie redefines the romance genre. Taking away the raw and primitive sex and making it a fairytale romance that makes you crave that kind of love. Just beware that this is not a book for the faint hearted or the young. There are some explicit sex scenes.

Character Thoughts:

Auréle and P.O. are characters after my own heart. I found them so accessible. Auréle with her love for reading and photography and P.O.'s love for computers and code. They are characters I hold dear to my heart. P.O. has this incredible charm and Auréle had this undeniable presence that demands to be seen, even whens she wishes to be invisible

Final Thoughts:

Overall, this has to be my favourite book in the Incandescent series. I absolutely adored the other two but this one was a close to home kind of book. It was as if this book was written with me in mind. The writing was beyond superb and the plot was both heart warming and heart stopping. The characters were accessible to me and have found a special place in my heart. I love this book and I am so glad I got to beta read this book. I absolutely adored each and every sentence. I highly recommend this book and series to romance lovers out there. Just a little bit of a warning, there are some sex scenes. So I would not recommend this to younger readers.

Yours in Reading,



  1. P.O. and Aurèle will probably never recover from this lovely and heartfelt review and neither will I! From my heart to yours, thank you for loving them as much as I do. Here's to more of the same in 2018 with the rest of the crew. Sylvie xo
