“Did you ever feel like there was something you wanted, but you didn’t know what it was?” The whole book is filled with beautiful and pensive quotes. Now I get why everyone loves Radclyffe. I picked it for romance but I got much more. Of course the romance was great but it was their conversations that got to me. I have been feeling rudderless lately and it was like Tanner put my feelings into words. The book had such a melancholic atmosphere and a scene that made me cry my eyes out. Adrienne'
I always have trouble connecting with characters in Radclyffe books. Her stories seem to be more about lust rather than love. She does really well with descriptions of physical attraction but fails to properly develop emotional connection. It's an afterthought. There's a lot of telling, they love each other or so the author writes but I'm not feeling it. All I know is that they want to fuck each time they see each other and most of the time they do. I value emotion more than physical attraction
I was worried this would be an earlier effort and I would be disappointed but I wasn't. It was more angsty than I normally associate with Radclyffe but I appreciated Adrienne being a cancer survivor (with mastectomy and no breast reconstruction). It's always nice to see a variety of women depicted in these books. I mostly listened to this and I thought Natalie Duke did a good job. She's not my favorite but sometimes it messes with my head when I reading about new characters in a voice I associat...
This is the book I hoped would be uplifting as a good, easy-to-read romance. Adrienne and Tanner have appeared in the Honor Series so there was never any doubt as to the HEA but it wasn't an easy journey. Tanner is out of control and indulging in alcohol, drugs and women to fill the constant emptiness she feels. Adrienne hires a house on Whitley Island, Tanner's family's island, for six months as an escape from her life. She wants to be alone but Tanner's recklessness draws her in. Tomorrow's Pr...
Now we are talking - Radclyffe back to her best - what she does so well - tell an excellent story with believable characters and reactions - no messing with her! Good to have the real Radclyffe back (after Shadowland.)
My SynopsisAdrienne Pierce has had her life turned upside down. She wants a break from the craziness of the past year and decides to make her way to Whitley Point for the summer.Tanner Whitley is the heir to the Whitley dynasty. She’s a ladies Woman that is reckless with her life with drugs and alcohol to forget the tragic death of her hero, her father. Getting lost on each other was never the plan but what happens when he summer ends?My ReviewI actually loved this book. It is why Radclyffe is o...
She's done it again!This is a spin off from the Honor series where Radclyffe lets you get to know her characters more. Intimately. Tanner is Blair's school friend who she turns to in desperate situation. But learning about Tanner is really nice as it gives you some background giving the characters more depth. It is a great story and it's funny, serious and captivating. I loved the book. Worth reading especially if you've read the Honor series.
A short entertaining read for me but also dissapointed by some of the delivery. For instance Adrienne's revelation was shallow compared to the mounted suspense, then there's Adrienne ogling Tanner at the verge of death that was not an imagination i wanted to reflect on. Also the romance seemed sensible but it lacked substance in that deep romantic way I anticipate from a Radclyffe novel.
I liked this story. I really liked Adrianne and Tanner together. As with most of Radclyffe's books they have great chemistry, the story is well written, a very good read.
Typically great Radclyffe story.
Finished another amazing book by Radclyffe.! And the most amazing part about it was that when i first bought it i didn't look thru the pages but when i started reading i found the most amazing thing in it. Not only was it an amazing book but it was also signed by the Radclyffe her self. Even if it wasn't dedicated to me its amazing to know i have a signed book by her.!! It was well told and had an amazing way pf connecting two people who would have never thought were attracted to one another. I
Lovely storyHave been reading a number of Radclyffe's books. Have enjoyed most of them. She does wounded characters well. Dealing with the after effects of breast cancer is brave and timely. Love her characters. Some have accused her of being formulaic, but so are most romance writers. At least she does it well! I read to escape and when I can immerse myself into a good story, I consider the author's done his job. Always with Radclyffe. This is what I want to read as a lesbian!
This is an emotional read with real people with real problems. The read hooked me because of how the characters were described (their internal struggle) and the beauty of the island. Adrienne Pierce serious illness as well as relationship issues. Tanner Whitley, heir to the Whitley fortune with emotional issues as well as who am I and who do I want to be issues. Much sexual energy and will she or will she not commit.
A decent standalone love story, and if you have read Radclyffe's Honor series you will recognise the main characters, Tanner Whitley and Adrienne Pearce. They play only a small part in the Honor books to date, but Tomorrow's Promise shows how they met and fell in love.
Honestly should be tagged all smut, no plot.Also tired of authors confusing ~unhealthy coping mechanisms and insecurities~ for passion. No. Passion does not need to come from a dark, deep broken place.
I am not sure how Radclyffe does it from a short story to a full book she is always keeping at the edge. I love the way her characters interact between them, their chemistry, their love scenes. I am so huge fan of her books. I am looking forward to read more of her books.
I love this couple. They were a small but amazing part of the Honor Series and I am glad I finally got to read their story.
I'm not certain why I waited so long to read this book. I had always admired Tanner Whitley from the Honor Series, and although her relationship with Adrienne had not really been touched on there, this novel did not disappoint on that score. I thoroughly enjoyed it. (view spoiler)[ I really enjoyed Tanner's character, the development of her deep moods and reckless behavior so typical of Radclyffe in her writing. It was disturbing at times, infuriating as well, especially after the introduction o...
Scoring Criteria - Chemistry (3.5) – Story (3) – Characters (3.5) – Entertainment (3) – Scene (3). Steaminess level 2. Overall rating 3.6*This is book no.4 of Radclyffe’s Romance series. I am a bit bias when it comes to Radclyffe because I adore her books and her characters. But I will try to stay impartial. (FYI this book gives background to characters present in Radclyffe’s Honor series.)Tanner Whitley comes from old money and has no interest in working in her family’s company. She turns to dr...
This is the first book I ever read by Rad and I still love everything about this book. Tanner and Adrienne made such a sweet couple and I really enjoy how different the two were. Tanner was kind of this spoiled rich kid who just couldn't get herself together and she falls in love with a Navy officer who is trying to figure out how to cope and overcome something devastating that happened to her. The best thing about Rad if that her books are never focused on coming out stories or anything of the
I liked this book. I was surprised to read about that a main character had breast cancer; This is the first book that I have read that has addressed this subject, and I thought it was handled well. I did, however, find myself frustrated with Adrienne's actions on a few occasions. I hated that she kept pulling away from Tanner. (Her logic is explained to the reader, but not to Tanner.) I also felt like Tanner let her off the hook too easily toward the end of the book. I was also left a little con...
I read this after reading all 11 books in the Honor Series - I loved now learning the story of Tanner & Adrienne and how they came to be. Beautiful stand-alone love story - but also if you have read the Honor Series you would love this as well!
I love love love Tanner
Heartache-ly beautiful. I can’t quite forgive the end, but...gah!
not my favorite. 3.5
Same old, same old' ! Just to say it's usual Radclyffe stuff. Same story, lot of past issue going on for both main characters, with sparks of anger and passion. Unfathomable breakup and then obvious make-up for happy ending. No surprise there, but enjoyable read. Surprisingly, the heteosexual romance between minor second charaters is much more sweet and beautiful than the main story.
I'm so happy I read this book. It was absolutely heartbreaking and beautiful. It may not be the romance of the year, but it moved me like very few other romance novels have. And I've read A LOT of them.How amazing is it to fall in love when you least expect it? When you thought life could only bring you unhappiness?It's so rare to read stories of this genre where both characters are deeply hurting and find understanding in each other only, despite the millions of things that make them different....
To tell the truth, up to two third of the book I was gonna put 4 stars cause I really really liked that story. It was deep, meaningful. But once the characters slept together, it seemed like it was page on page of sex. Nothing wrong with sex, especially when it's well written like this, but it seemed for a good while that all that happened next was just to include more sex. And, after such a wonderful read, I felt like it hurt the story. It certainly hurt my enjoyment of it. But then the wrap-up...
From the beginning reading it, I was not impressed. But since the middle she captivated me so much that I completely lost in time reading it. An ordinary story, but the skill with which Radclyffe describes the feelings of the characters, is just battling u on the spot. The story captured my mind. I love stories like "Love's melody lost" (my favorite from Radclyffe) and this book, in my opinion, came close to it. I do not know whether it was meant to introduce the reader to some confusion at the
I felt this was average for Radclyffe. I do have high expectations from her. The characters were a bit one dimensional. I am also not a big fan of the plot line of one of the characters running away for a period of time and returning to pick up the pieces. It's a good, casual read.
