Review: “Mr. Gold” by Margot Rose

Mr. GoldA fun, quick read. The developing relationship between the characters could have been fraught and over-dramatic, but Rose balances the need for tension in the story with the realities of modern, mature adults.

It’s a romance story, so you already know that there’s going to be a happily ever after. My favorite part of this story is getting to see a bit of that happily ever after, something often left hanging in short fiction.

I knocked a star off my rating because some of the sexy bits occur in places that seemed at odd with the personalities of the characters as they’re portrayed. This in no way diminished my overall enjoyment of the plot and relationship development.

Rating: 4 (out of 5) stars. Cross-posted to Amazon and Goodreads.
