Sheltered Love By MJ Williams

Or…When the outline (synopsis/blurb) has more depth than the book.

Boone Fairway owns a very successful bar and has even more success with women. Grey Dawson runs a shelter for abused women. Both come from families where the father was physically violent. Grey believes that alcohol consumption leads to abuse and since Boone owns a bar, she doesn’t want to have anything to do with her. Throw in a victim of domestic abuse (Boone’s sister-in-law Phoebe) and, ergo, there is reason for Boone and Grey to meet on the daily.

There is a lot (a lot) of sex in this book but we just didn’t get the draw between the two MCs. Their feeling and emotions, their connection and particularly their ‘love’ is completely glossed over. A lot of the dialogues (amongst all characters) is extremely amateurish. We would have thought that the real conflict between the two MCs would be Boone’s sleeping around but that seemingly just dies on first sight of Grey.

The characters are at best uni-dimesional. The plot, promising but completely unexplored. The chemistry, incomprehensible. But, yay! for the many, many explicit sex scenes.

However, this is not really a book you should invest time into.
