The Blush Factor By Gun Brooke


The biggest, biggest plus about this book: it is a real age-gap romance with a gap of 23 years between the two MCs. We love this. What more, the author totally makes it work.

Eleanor Ashford is a very successful business woman who has inherited a dying make-up company, Face Exquisite that she is determined to turn around. The biggest problem with Face Exquisite is that it has no connect with the younger demographic. Addison Garr is a YouTube make-up celebrity with each of her make-up videos garnering almost a million views. Eleanor contacts Addison to offer her a consultancy position with Face Exquisite.

The 23-year age gap had us super-thrumming. And then the other interesting element in the mix was that Eleanor (the older MC) is the one who always thought she was straight. It is actually her first time of getting attracted to a woman. Thankfully, this doesn’t have the melt-the-ice-queen approach. The women are attracted towards each other and the relationship grows naturally. Without having to struggle with breaking down walls. Yes, there is some amount of what-the-hacking from Eleanor, but she deosn’t shy away from Addison because of that.

The romance works, but there are a lot of underdeveloped threads (the Eleanor and her father rift aspect or Eleanor and her aunt bonding) that the author introduces and doesn’t develop. Developing these threads more fully would have created a more rounded character, but the author concentrates wholly on the romantic relationship only; and since we are incurable romantics, hat works for us. Some of the dialogue between them seems stilted, that that is a very minor complaint because on the whole the situations, the interactions and the chemistry between the MCs is what really counts and all those are in place.
