Review – An Acute Attraction by A.J. Walters
A J Walters is a new contemporary romance author who has just made her first appearance on to the indie circuit. Having interests in history, romance and elements of erotica, she has brought all of these together in her debut publication; An Acute Attraction.
Wanting to break the trend of size 12 virgins in books, A J Walters has introduced a new real woman in Isabel Chambers. She’s a size 18-20, working single mother who now feels is it her time to start living her life again. At the ripe young age of 39, A J Walters also wanted to show that you can experience everything that a twenty-something would.
“I saw that a 39 year old isn’t quite at retirement age for fun, sex and finding love again. There are so many women out there that can be represented in books as well as the slim, innocent and beautiful types. Don’t get me wrong I love reading books with them in, but there is so many of them around now I felt it is time for something different. I’d like to think I brought my sense of humour across in it as well. I am ditsy, I suffer from ‘foot in mouth’ syndrome, but I can also be serious and sentimental. From the feedback I’ve had, apparently it makes for a great writing voice.”
Meet working single mother Isabel Chambers. She’s not a size 12 or as you’ve probably guessed, a virgin either. She’s lived her life, but now feels it is her time to re-discover herself.
Marc Sanders an attractive, successful Harvard Professor of Medicine visiting Cambridge. He has a secret past that has been well hidden.
Reality based romances are awesome. Erotica with curvaceous a woman in the lead is rare. This book is amazing. It’s a book with a humor that balances feeling. It’s a real pleasure to believe you can still have hot sex after 30, and a writer wasn’t afraid to go there. She also isn’t afraid to show real sexual attraction. Not some hyper weird over sexualised “I love you immediately” stuff we’ve all been seeing lately. If you want a hot and fast paced read pick this one up right now.
