Touched To The Heart
Written by Elsa WincklerGenre: Romance
Lindsey G.'s Review
Hands massaging taught, hard muscles within the first few pages. Yep, that hooked me. Winckler brings to life the beautiful imagery of a cyclist physique and the South African country in this sweet and sexy tale.
When physiotherapist Caitlin works the kinks out of hotel mogel Don, sparks fly. As Caitlin learns more about the dashing eldest Cavallo brother, the deeper she falls. The duo hit more than one road block on their journey, but what kind of fun would it be if it were easy?
Winckler's writing is fun and engaging. I loved that the story brought family and friends into the mix of Caitlin and Don's burgeoning relationship. With Caitlin's trust issues and Don's playboy lifestyle, the two needed people in their lives to fall back on.
I had only a few things that bothered me about this story. One, it was too short. At only 130 pages, I felt there was much more that could have been explored, especially with Caitlin's issues with her father. I also would've liked some explanation about Caitlin's sister, Hannah, and Don's brother, Darryn. Winckler eludes to a rocky past relationship, but never resolves the issue. I've searched, but have not found that this book is part of a series. If that is the case, leaving that relationship cloaked in mystery is quite confusing.
Although I had these issues, I truly enjoyed Caitlin and Don's story. The characters were flawed yet intriguing. I hope that Winckler will continue the story of the Cavallo and Sutherland families.
