Sounds of Love - Susan Laine The plot was all about the romance here with anything else – for example, Sebastian’s handicap, or both main characters being with the police force – taking a back seat. As different as they may appear, Jordan and Sebastian are actually quite alike. They both come from defunct families, they have both a younger brother they’re very close to, they’re both lonely and ready to find their respective other half (even though Jordan takes a little longer to realize the latter). Next to the romance, family was another big theme here, resulting in the oft-stated realization that who someone calls family is a matter of choice rather than birth. The story flowed smoothly and pleasantly enough; aside from some all-too-convenient solutions, I found it nicely done.I had big problems with the writing style, though. In the beginning, I found Jordan’s narrative voice agreeably sarcastic, if somewhat chatty and prone to ramble. Further into the story, though, the prose turned more and more purple, particularly during the sex scenes.Speaking of which, there was also quite a bit of deep thinking and soul-searching contemplation going on during intimate scenes, expanding them to a point where a single kiss could span almost two pages. To say nothing of actual bedroom scenes – of which there were not THAT many, but they took up a lot of page space. Now, I’m well aware that this is mainly a matter of taste, and as for me, this is what it comes down to with this book. If you’re into this kind of intense,verbose and detailed writing style, you’ll most probably like this novel a lot better than I did.originalley written for reviewsbyjessewave.com
