Taste of Night (Signs of the Zodiac, eternal optimism and perseveres in believing that one day her prince will come Even if deep down she knows she s already met himEnter darling David We need LOTS of heartye mojis just for saying the name because I literally happy sigh thinking of him He is a caring and mpathetic male lead which we sadly do not see nough of in romance be it contemporary or historical I adore him and his begrudging ceaseless devotion to the girl he fell in love with so many years arlierAmalia finds herself in the crosshairs of a sadistic stalker think Fatal Attraction boiled bunny kind of stalker and David is charged with finding who it is with his Pinkerton counterparts A series of incredibly unfortunate The Road From Home: The Story Of An Armenian Girl events befall our beloved characters and they find themselves knee deep in survival mode I refuse to spoiler ANY of this fabulous roller coaster that is Dalliances Devotion not simply because I hate spoilers as a reader but because you need toxperience it for yourselfFive stars is not nearly Exile and Pilgrim enough toncompass Ms Grossman sopho release I can t wait to read by this talented author and SINCERELY hope this isn t the nd of the colorful and intriguing Truitt tribe This review originally appeared as part of Pink Heart Society s August ditionRating 45 starsYes yes yes This was just what I wanted to read A newspaper columnist and two time divorcee is the target of harassment and needs a bodyguard in the form of her first love YES And let s also mention that they are both Jewish plus he s an immigrant All set a few years after the Hannah Montana: The Movie end of the American Civil WarOur wonderful couple consist of Amalia and David former young lovers who have a misunderstanding and part ways with Amalia going as far as to get married to another man in reaction Yes really Amalia comes across as initially frivolous and superficial on the surface until you realise that you re being very judgemental and that she s actually a clever useful and fun person to have around She s also incredibly resourceful and caring dedicating herself to helping womenscape bad marriages David on the flip side comes across as serious though Amalia does bring out the teasing side of him Swoon He s rather stubborn though and holds a lot of beliefs about who he is and what people think of him that are uite frankly just silly And they are perfect for ach other Who doesn t like a second chance romanceThe book is on the longer side but don t let that put you off In fact I just wanted to keep reading stay in this narrative with two characters that clearly wanted ach other but hadn t been clear in the past and made themselves unhappy in doing so They had such great chemistry with this back and forth of thinking they weren t suited but still not being able to resist ach other There were some xcellent sexy scenes I must say It wasn t just the heatwave in London having me fanning myselfI learned so much from this book further proving how awesome romance novels can be For xample I learned about the Pinkertons the first detective agency in the US which David was one of I learned that immigrants to the US like David volunteered to fight in the civil war I learned about the difficulties of getting a divorce and how you had to go about it in the 1870sI also realised just how little I actually read from the perspective of Jewish people I ve read non fiction accounts from the Holocaust but novels And set in other time periods Not so much Earlier this year I read my first YA historical novel the absolutely brilliant In the Neighborhood of True by Susan Kaplan Carlton all about a Jewish teenager who has to move to Atlanta Georgia to live with her Christian grandparents and see the ffects of the KKK s presence on her community in 1958 Then came this book I have a feeling I may have read one or two books in the past but I can t recall them But it s still such a low number of Jewish main characters And Dalliances Devotion went a step further by showing the diversity Cardiovascular Pet: Current Concepts even within the Jewish populationBut you re not just reading this book for the history and cultural lessons What you re really reading it for is thelectric connection between the characters as well as their personal growth The action xcitement and funny supporting cast also keep things ngaging Dalliances Devotion is a delightfully different historical romance that has converted me into a Felicia Grossman fanI voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book All thoughts and opinions are my own. Some is problematic to say the leastIn very close uarters with danger lurking around A Companion to Peter Martyr Vermigli every curve withach kiss and illicit touch the wrongs of the past are righted But David can't weather another rejection specially with his career in jeopardy And Amalia can't possibly take a lover never mind another husbandnot with so much depending on her repaired reputation Not when she’s hurt David her David so badly befo.
