Finding romance, one book at a time.

Against the Wall (Maverick Montana, #1)

Against the Wall (Maverick Montana, #1) - Rebecca Zanetti 2.5 starsHmmmm. Against the Wall wasn't bad but it wasn't great either. I couldn't connect with the Jake or Sophie or their romance. I didn't believe the attraction and nothing about them stood out to me to make them extremely interesting.I also had a problem with the heroine being blond, blue-eyed being pursued by the brown skinned Indian. Even though Jake is educated and a lawyer the white skin-brown skin dynamic bothered me. It reminded me of the historical romances I read in the 80s about the savage Indian man capturing the innocent pale skin woman and having his way with her. I mean, Jake and Sophie are introduced with Jake galloping on his horse and swooping unsuspecting Sophie up on his horse. I know I'm probably reading too much into it and I'm the only one that doesn't find it romantic and swoon-worthy. Sometimes I just can't keep my thoughts at the surface level. Some things aren't that deep but I can't help myself.The supporting characters were entertaining. I love Jake's family. Jake and Sophie were okay. There's something that happens towards the end of the book that annoyed me. Normally I like this kind of trope in my romances but this one fell flat. I didn't fully believe the "I love yous" but definitely felt the attraction between Jake and Sophie. I'll definitely be reading the next book in the series. I really liked Jake's brothers.
