Linked was a fantastically written book, full of adventure and a hearty helping of hot, steamy romance. Truth be told, I don’t usually care for your run-of-the-mill romance, but this book was one heck of an exception. The love scenes were hot, without being corny or cliche, and they blended in exquisitely with the main story itself. Hope Welsh is a very talented and skilled writer, who portrays her characters in a very realistic, very vivid light, and who spins a story like a spider does a web- meaning, that she traps you into obsessive reading right from the start. I won’t give away too many details, but I will say that the ending was fantastic. It was unexpected, to say the least, and it gives me great hopes for the second book- which I am about to go devour much as I did this one. In fact, I devoured Linked in a matter of hours. I simply couldn’t put it down. I loved the way that the story mixed a strong element of fantasy into our modern day world. It makes you rethink things, because the story could so very easily be true. There are, after all, so many things that we don’t know about the world around us, and I love stories that make me wonder. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys romance or fantasy. I mean, I don’t usually like romance and I loved this one, although I’ll totally admit to being an avid fantasy reader. The graphic sex scenes (which were amazingly hot, by the way-or did I already say that?) makes this a book that is not suited towards anyone under the age of eighteen, however.
