Review -- Loving Adonis by Sandi K. Whipple

Loving Adonis is a beautiful but frustrating love story about poor communication and jealousy.


Angie and Gary get together early in the story and over time they develop a deep and sensuous relationship. They don't just hop into the sack together. They go out, spend time getting to know one another, and do crazy things before their relationship turns serious and culminates in delicious, passionate and loving sex. A great, solid base for a lasting connection, you're thinking.


But no. One day Gary simply says "See Ya," and walks out on Angie.


She has no idea what has caused the sudden change in him, and although she tries to get on with her life and build up her flower business, she cannot forget the handsome man she has privately named 'Adonis'.


Gary cannot put Angie out of his mind either. But when they get back together, and things seem to be running smoothly again, the same thing happens. Just those two little words and everything is thrown into turmoil again.


Their greatest problem is that they do not communicate well. This leads to all sorts of wild and incorrect assumptions, which damage their relationship over and over until you, as a reader feel as frustrated as them.


The happy ending is full of twists and surprises that I couldn't foresee, and it made up for all the frustration.
