STRAWBERRIES AND CREAM IS ONE SWEET READ!
Strawberries and Cream; (Hotel Cupid #1) by; Sage Marlowe
reviewed by: Becky
“The gift of love is not always an easy one to accept, but it is a gift, and it should be accepted with appreciation.”
When efficient, self-controlled business man Ross bumps into a stranger on a crowded platform one morning, he doesn’t know that Cupid has been pulling the strings. And yet, he follows the leads to flamboyant Sebastian who, for all his outward flippancy, hides a shy and sensitive soul. Despite their opposing personalities and lifestyles, they become lovers, but Ross never quite manages to overcome the one thing that keeps him from fully accepting Sebastian—and his own past.
One day, a trip leads them to a secluded hotel on the coast of Scotland. With a little help from Aengus, the hotel’s kind but mysterious owner and his liquid happiness, Ross and Sebastian make another attempt at building a bridge—a bridge they will hopefully be able to cross together, hand in hand.
It is taking a while to write this review because I keep staring at this cover, Yum! This is a departure of sorts for Sage Marlowe, this book doesn't have many of the dark elements of his other books I have read, but does that mean this book is not as good, oh no it doesn't! This book proves that this author can do anything in the literary sense! This is a wonderful story that I really couldn't put down, Ross and Sebastian needed a little help figuring out just what they mean to each other, and it takes a kind, but somewhat different hotel owner named Aengus to make them see it. This is a beautiful story, and I know you will feel better about love and life after reading it! Thank you Sage, for giving us something different, but equally as magical as your other work! *5 Stars*
