So for book 3 of The Reading Rampage, I just finished Live-in Position by V.S. (Victoria) Tice.
This is a great example of well-written romantic literature. Sophia is a believable, wonderful narrator. She is a beautiful heroine with dreams of her own. Victoria is a sweet little girl who needs a mother. I love the friendship and love that develops between them through out the book. Matter of fact, one of my favorite aspects of the book is that Victoria also seems to be maturing at an appropriate rate for a child her age as the book goes on. Of course, I love the fact the book is set in my hometown of Seattle. Except for a few generalizations, she has the geography and general area correct. (She kept saying “the hospital,” we have nine major medical facilities in city limits and so I started reading “Harborview” which is known for neurology, but unfortunately doesn’t quite fit some of the hospital scenes because it is a public hospital. Ms. Tice, I give you permission to damn this anal-retentive Seattle local!!!)
With regard to sexual chemistry, Sophia and Dr. Bishop are terrific together. He is handsome as well as a gentleman, but he is too controlling for my taste and thus the polar opposite to what I find attractive in a man, so I spent more time wanting to tell Dr. Bishop to put his big boy pants on than anything. (which the leading lady does beautifully btw.) So while I had a hard time rooting for the guy, but I am sure lots of other ladies will love him which is why I am giving Live in Position four stars.
