Scenes of Passion, by Suzanne Brockmann

>> Thursday, August 28, 2003

Ok, my last Suzanne Brockmann until I can get a copy of Night Watch.... a friend lent me Scenes of Passion (excerpt) this week.

Twenty-nine-year-old Maggie Stanton always did what was right, what was expected. Safe, steady....and unsatisfying--that pretty much summed up her life. Until she encountered a stranger who stirred her imagination until she blushed, and who, with looks that communicated a lifetime, made Maggie do the unimaginable: take a risk....

To Maggie's shock, the man who'd compelled her to forsake predictability for passion was the full-grown version of the rebellious boy who'd been her best friend. Only, this Matthew Stone wanted marriage, not reminiscences. For a while, Maggie almost believed that their whirlwind wedding was the union of soul mates. Almost. Because there was much more to her husband that met the eye....
A fun B+. Nothing special, objectively, but those little things that are so Brockmann account for the high grade.

The characters were great, and Matt, especially, was a to-die-for hero. There was just a certain chemistry between them, and their relationship, a friendship that quickly turned into something more, was so great that I can forgive the slightly hackneyed category plot about will stipulations and the foolish Big Misunderstanding in the last part.
