Out of the Blue by Jess Bryant*

Out of the Blue

When we first meet the hero and the heroine, the author commits the grievous sin of an information dump. It is particularly bad for the hero as several pages of backstory occurred before anything literally happened. Because this is a novella, perhaps the author felt like she just had to get the information out there—I’ve seen this happen in other novellas—but I just don’t like information dumps. I normally like second-chance romance stories, but this one just fell flat for me right out of the gate. I didn’t like that the hero revealed his hand so fast, especially knowing their history. And I have to say he had some unhero-like moments that I just didn’t like. If you enjoy second-chance-at-romance stories, you might enjoy other ones better.
