Modern Love Review & Giveaway

Modern Love is more than a romance between two complex characters, it is a novel that explores human insecurities and inner struggles of real people with what some may consider unconventional backgrounds and lifestyles, but is in fact a true portrayal of our society and the people in it.

While listening to the audiobook narrated by the talented Becca Martin I kept having a feeling of familiarity, as if I was speaking with my best friend. The writing style is fluid and modern and it was like a breath of fresh air. I am already used to Beau North’s compelling writing style but this story surprised me by being both profound and light at the same time. The author approached sensitive topics that could bring a darker side to the book, but she kept the story light, fresh and natural, a tone that Becca Martin captured perfectly in her narration, doing justice to the quality of Beau North’s writing.

The chapters in the book alternate between both characters’ perspectives and that kept the narrative appealing but also allowed us to better understand Alice and Will whom I really loved.

Alice is a modern girl recovering from a bad breakup and some addiction issues, she’s brave, strong, intelligent and even though I liked her and what she represents, my favourite character was Will, her love interest. Will is the epitome of perfection to me, intelligent, sexy, mysterious, caring and rich. Alice may bring more depth into the story, but Will captured my heart, and I think their love story will capture yours 🙂

I highly recommend Modern Love to mature audiences who are interested in a fresh and unique approach to love and life. In it you will find a real love story without embellishments that will take you into an adventurous roller coaster of emotions.

  18. From your brilliant review, it seems that this is not a JAFF story. I’m not sure if I would like it but I’ll give it a try nevertheless, Rita. It sounds quite appealing as I’m a romance reader too when not reading Austen-themed stories.
