Blitzkrieg Love by Livia Olteano

Blitzkrieg LoveBlitzkrieg Love by Livia Olteano
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Smart, fun, and incredibly sexy, Blitzkrieg Love has all the elements of a great story. Told from the point of view of Bea, a young 20-something dancer in a nightclub, Blitzkrieg Love follows her as she is forced to find her inner strength and overcome her fears.

Bea is a great lead. Though far from perfect, she is a young independent woman who is not afraid to speak her mind. She dances because she loves how alive it makes her feel and is not ashamed to stick to her morals and not take it any further, even under pressure. Doug and Anthony are great characters, too, and well written. I really wish that there would have been more of the secondary characters in the story. Tony and Justine, in particular, were kind of glossed over even though they potentially played important roles in the book.

The heat between Bea and Anthony was fabulously sexy. They had an instant spark that sent chills down my spine. Intense is the only word that can describe Anthony, and that is exactly what Bea did not want. The only thing that bothered me about their relationship is I would have loved to have their courting/flirting drawn out more instead of the instantaneous love that took place. This was a relatively short book at around 150 words, so there was plenty of room to expand and draw out the tension between them. As it was, it was not really believable that Bea could go from one extreme of panicking fear to the other of complete trust in such a short time after living with her fears for two long years.

Overall this turned out to be an excellent story that I enjoyed very much.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
