The Sum of All Kisses

The Sum of All Kisses - Julia Quinn When I pick up a Julia Quinn novel, I always know exactly what I'm getting into: pure, undiluted fluff. And that's not necessarily a bad thing. In Julia Quinn's case, it's not a bad thing at all. She writes some of the best pure-fluff HR being published (if you're looking for a another great one, I recommend [a:Tessa Dare|2752928|Tessa Dare|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/authors/1242150259p2/2752928.jpg]). Julia Quinn books make me laugh, make me sigh, and make my heart melt just a little.This book is, in my opinion, one of her better ones. True, I always wish for a little more plottiness than she delivers, but whereas I'm often bored when I read romances where nothing exciting happens, my time flew by as I read this book. Hugh was a great character, with just the right amount broodiness tempered by wry sarcasm, and though Sarah was eye-rollingly dramatic at times, overall she was a heroine I could root for. She was so great during the extremely memorable climactic scene that I almost cheered aloud. (Extremely mild I love it when the heroine is the one who does the rescuing..)Overall, I highly recommend this to romance readers who can appreciate lighthearted fluff.Note: Thanks to Avon and Edelweiss for providing me an advance copy.
