Juniper Smoke by Sadia Ash – Review by Sheri Schrader
Juniper Smoke by Sadia Ash
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Juniper Smoke Part I and Part II by Sadia Ash is a story full of romance, twists, turns, and passion. The story is about Juniper Mills who is a junior curator at the museum in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Kyle Paxton is a tech wiz from San Francisco. The two meet at a gala for the museum Juniper works. Juniper is a smart, sassy curator who puts her family and work ahead of her life. Kyle is tall, dark, and handsome. One would not put the two together, but immediately there are sparks between them after Kyle rescues Juniper. Kyle makes a proposal to Juniper that challenges her way of thinking about relationships. I enjoyed that Juniper was old fashioned and not into the hookup scene. Kyle, on the other hand, is modern and plans each relationship with mechanical precision as he does the rest of his business and personal life. What will become the two of them who live a world apart?
I absolutely loved this book. Finally, a female character is who is smart, hardworking, loyal to her family but also kind and a bit innocent. I was leery of Kyle’s character but grew to admire and like him also. I kept rooting for the two of them to find their common ground and be a couple. They are thrown challenges as they are trying to learn about one another. The twists and turns are fantastic. I could not believe I was done when I finished and am looking to the next part of the story.
