Blurb : Kiss. Marry. Kill. Nineteen-year-old June Eyermann has always known exactly which of her favorite Byronic heroes goes where. Sheâd kiss moody and possessive Rochester from Jane Eyre and marry prideful but repentant Darcy from Pride and Prejudice, leaving obsessive and spiteful Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights to be chucked off a cliffâbut no. She couldnât leave any of her heroes behind. She lives for her favorite fictional worlds. But June is about to get a serious wake up call when she returns home for the summer after her college freshman year. Stuck somewhere between feeling like a kid again under her parentsâ roof and being forced to start acting like an adult with worries about her future career, June looks at the library volunteer position offered to her as a way to keep her sanity for the next few months before she can go back to school. What June doesnât expect to find at the library is her favorite romantic heroes brought to lifeâall in the same man. Obstinate, prideful and even a bit rude, Everett Rockford shouldnât exactly be âdating material,â even if Juneâs heart rate accelerates whenever sheâs near him. But after discovering his enigmatic past and witnessing a few fiery moments of tenderness, June canât help but see Rochester, Darcy and even Heathcliff in Everett. If sheâs going to make it through the summer without becoming a tragic heroine in her own story, she has to separate the man from the ideals of fiction in her head. Because if thereâs one thing she knows about Byronic love stories, itâs that they donât always end happily ever after.
Review :There are those incredible sweet stories you come across once in a while. The kind of story that you are sure you will remember for a long time.
âA Love for the Pagesâ by Joy Penny is one of these stories. This new to me author managed in a wonderful way to create a contemporary romance novel that feels not contemporary at all.
If you are a fan of classical novels I am sure with âA Love for the Pagesâ you will find a perfect book to try out on the contemporary side of reading. You will find parts of a lot of the well known classics hidden within these pages and you will relate to the leading characters quickly.
The writing is wonderful and even the supporting characters are so enjoyable that I read this book in on session and was sad to see my new friends leave again.
AND I am not even a classic fan â¦
