Constellation by Jennifer Locklear
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
She’s intelligent, beautiful, and emotionally numb. He’s older, sophisticated, and harboring secrets.
Up-and-coming executive, Kathleen Brighton is ready to launch her family’s firm into the next level of success. Polished and professional on the outside, Kathleen’s personal life is a source of constant struggle and letdown. But after one night alone with Jack Evans, her sexy new colleague, her life takes a turn toward erotic intensity.
Torn between her instinct to guard herself and her irresistible desire for Jack, Kathleen has only known heartache. And when she finds herself in the middle of a shattering personal crisis, she must trust fragile and uncertain bonds to survive. Will Kathleen conquer the demons of her past to find a future worth fighting for?
As I start reading, I feel a real connection to the female character. She is absorbed in her own world. I can relate.The questions in her mind, the anxiety, the fear of rejection, the uncertainty, acknowledgement, something she is still fighting for. The need to safely control her life. She’s been through some hard tests.
Until one Friday.
The power that was given to another person, in an instance, yet minutes ago was a lot more intimate and now, a doubt. A big wall of silence surrounded her. One she help create, although she doesn’t understand why.
Ahhhh the power, we women, are not ready to gift, yet…
Meanwhile in between her thoughts, I learn a lot about this man. This care taker, this confident, perceptive protector.
The tension is real, and Kathleen seems very genuine,(she could be my best friend). I understand why she guards herself, afraid to get hurt and then again, afraid to hurt anybody else. By this time I was trying to talk with the characters…
To be happy we all have to take some risks, you know? Come on K let J open yours eyes!
Spice your life!
Yes I know , a divorced dad, a bound to the mother and child, links them for life. Older man, calmer, wiser. A sense of comfort, hard to believe if you experienced nothing like that before, makes him mysterious and very hard to resist.
Ok! Issues will always come. But that’s what life is all about, right? You don’t want to feel numb forever.
How much worth is a relationship? Can you trust your life?
Think with your head or feel with your heart?
About the writing, I’m really thrilled to have read Constellation. Intelligent, mature writing, very well described, in time, space and emotion.
Thank you Jennifer for sharing this story!
