#Review: A Passionate Love (Brooks Family Book 1) by Delaney Diamond

Simone Brooks and Cameron Bennett should not be together. She’s a wealthy socialite looking for a suitable husband. A man with the right pedigree and an economic status that matches her own. He’s part owner of the hottest nightclub in Atlanta with his siblings. Someone who loves cooking, the outdoors, and women, not necessarily in that order.

After one night together, their sizzling chemistry makes it difficult to stay away. Then comes the hard part—navigating their differences to salvage a relationship that, while it may be imperfect, overflows with love and passion.

My Review
Simone Brooks comes from a wealthy family and she is unapologetic about it. Cameron is an old-fashioned gentleman who likes to open doors and pay for his date etc. This isn't what he gets with Simone, who can afford way more than he can.

Frankly, Cameron was a bit of a jerk in a couple of scenes, but that brought a sense of realism to his character. I liked the fact that Simone wasn't your usual spoilt rich girl, which brought depth to her character. The secondary characters were also memorable, especially Simone's mother (who, it turns out, is the heroine of book 2 of the Brooks Family series).

This book is unique in that it is part of two different series: Book 1 of the Brooks Family series and an installment of the multi-author Bennett Triplets series. The epilogue gave some spoilers about the other two books in the Bennett Triplets series. Even though, they are standalones, I wonder if one might be better off reading the other two before this one.

Ms Diamond's storytelling flows smoothly as she weaves a tale of two people of unequal social standing doing what it takes to make it work. A Passionate Love is a fairly quick read that delivers a romance, a sexy hero and heroine, sizzling sex scenes and some family drama.

I enjoyed this story so much that I immediately 1-Clicked the next book in the series. Very curious about that one.

Rating: 5 of 5 stars
