Avid Reader

Trying this out. I may or may not move from Goodreads.
Rebels and Lovers - Linnea Sinclair I enjoyed this novel, although not as much as its predecessor, Hope's Folly. The 'A' plot was a fun ride. One of Sinclair's strengths has always been her action sequences, and these were no exception.

The 'B' plot--the romance--faltered. Unfortunately, Rebels and Lovers falls into a typical romance trope--the impediments between Makaiden and Devin could have been easily resolved if they'd simply had an honest conversation.

Instead, the middle of the book is padded with dithering on both sides, and the problems, when they do come up, turn out not to be problems after all.

I liked both main characters, but I felt that their romance lagged behind the adventure of the 'A' plot.
