A Review Of An Amorous Dance By Diana Rose

My Dear Future Readers,

I finished reading An Amorous Dance by Jessica Lauryn today. I am tearing up at the end of this book. Jessica Lauryn is a wonderful author and I am looking forward to her next book.

To be honest, I was entranced by her characters and the action in this book. It truly takes the OSCAR for unique storytelling. The complex relationship between Evan Masters and Hannah Rabourn is quite interesting to watch. Neither want to return to the love they once shared and yet it seems that the gravity pulling these two lovers together is indeed stronger than them. Hannah, tries to withstand temptation but in fact finds herself deeper in love with Evan Masters.

I believe that this book deserves to be a bestseller for the vivid images and complex situations it shows. The reader is pulled instantly into the story and from page 1, it is hard to let go. I found the unveiled secrets of the Theater and Augustus Nathanson to be quite a beautiful addition to the action and intrigue which I had gotten a taste of in A Passionate Play. I believe that An Amorous Dance is even more intriguing and lustful, dare I say it, than I thought it would be.

Every character in this book had a surprising back story which I was a happy witness of. Of course, Jessica Lauryn write very interesting and suspenseful stories for each character in this book and I believe that the romance was very on time in this book. In fact, I would say that at times I felt entranced by the words that Ms. Lauryn writes. I felt like I was being pulled into the story and I was living the scene through the character. That is the kind of book I love most. I love Jessica Lauryn as the wonderful author she is and I can’t wait for Rabourn Theater Book 3 to be out so that I can read it.

 Also, I want to say that in reading this wonderfully written book, I learned a lot about the characters and how to create an intriguing back-stories and characters that are relatable to real life. It is called being a wonderful author when the reader can get emotional over what you have written. I feel like Hannah and Evan have become my “friends” as I read their story. It is not often that I feel that with books But with Jessica Lauryn’s books, I truly feel like her characters have become my “friends.”
I will be doing an interview with Ms. Jessica Lauryn in the coming days and I really am intrigued to learn more about how this book developed so perhaps this will be a two-part interview because of all the questions I have in my head.
DON’T MISS IT!!
I look forward to hearing from you soon. I thank you all for your infinite support.

My Dear Future Readers:

I have read many romance novels in my time but this is my first time reading a Romantic Suspense genre.  This book was the first book I read from Jessica Lauryn. My first impression of this book when I started it was that Ms. Lauryn took the subject of the theatre and turned into something magical. The characters were extremely lifelike. This story took me through a journey of the onstage performance and what the actor’s life behind the curtain of the theater was like. Everything seemed simple but it was not as the story showed me what the main character, Alicia Coleman was truly like when she had lost her memory. Her feelings for Nick Lancaster at first when I first read about him in the first part of the book, are not simply love or hate, she showed confusion quiet vividly, I might say. It was apparent that Nick and Alicia have a very complex relationship. At times, their conversations made me laugh, made me feel angry that Alicia didn’t understand that Nick meant to protect her.

At other times, Nick’s way of caring for Alicia made me happy because it was clear that he loved her and he just had a hard time admitting it. It was fun to see in my mind the scenes that Ms Lauryn so vividly paints with her words. The Bear Scene was the most fun for me to read and it was really clear in my head as if I could see the bear charging at me as I try to escape the bear. The emotion of fear and terror was clearly portrayed. Also, the scenes with the attacker was quite emotional and scary, yes, scary. But this a part of a good author’s job to portray emotion and scenes as if they were happening to the reader right then.

As an author, myself, I learned a lot from the way Jessica Lauryn wrote her descriptions. Her description in every paragraph was different. It was like an adventure to me to read this book. Every turn of a page made me want to read more of it and I ended up reading two-three chapters in one day.  I was so intrigued by this first book that I purchased Book 2: An Amorous Dance even before I finished this book. I could not wait to start Book 2 in this series. Honestly, I was so entranced by Jessica Lauryn’s talent in pulling me into her world that I want to read more of her books and follow her example in developing my own writing in a way that will pull my future readers into my books.

Jessica Lauryn is my new favorite author and I hope to read all of her books. She is my inspiration for writing books that people love. It is a great honor for me to know her and how truly beautiful she is on the inside and out. My favorite author and I I am starting to read An Amorous Dance right away. I hope to follow her career as she writes more because she is my inspiration.

After reading A Passionate Play, I believe that there might be a great story behind it which is why I wanted to ask Jessica Lauryn for an interview. She will be talking about the story of how she wrote this book and her inspiration in writing in my next blog post. Writing series of books tends to be freeing at some point because you can address your characters from all sides and I believe that this comes much easier to Jessica Lauryn right now. But I do plan to use that example as well. She is also the reason why I feel that writing a series of books is something that I want to do.

Writing a series to me is like living with the same people for a long time and getting to know them well enough. A series is something that means that you can not leave the characters. It gives you more room to explore your characters and I believe that it is a good choice for authors like Jessica Lauryn and myself. I believe that it is a good thing for an author to love their characters a lot because then the readers will love them too.

I look forward to hearing from you soon. I thank you all for your infinite support.
