Review of "The Big One" By Louisa Bacio

What's New to Review ~ Wednesday!

Good morning, fabulous friends! Just to catch you up on a few things here... My Disney World vacation was excellent! The kids, hubby and I all had a marvelous time and luckily we weren't rained out. Of course, we came home to a broken air conditioner, but hey... you win some, you lose some. The air conditioner has since been repaired and life is good again. Between all that, there have been some exciting developments in my writing career. New manuscripts are being forged, new sub calls have been published, and a full time position as a gaming writer has just opened up that I'm seriously considering applying for. (Yes, I am a nerd-geek to the core. I have no qualms about sharing that with you, my wonderful friends.) But, you're here for a book... So let's get to it!

The Book:

This weeks book was one that spoke to my heart. Not just for the romance, but because it is a Prepper Romance. Published by Decadent Publishing, their new line of Prepper Romances call to a select group of us that have that overwhelming fear of WHAT IF? This installment is the 10th in line of fabulous writers who take a hard look at the What If... and being ready for it. Coming in at just under 20k, this novella took me about an hour and a half to read and was filled with just enough Prepper detail to fill the story, but not overwhelm a new reader with mundane details about canning and storing. Lousia Bacio is a prolific writer who happens to dabble in mentoring other young writers on the side and teach online classes for fledgling writers as well. But, without further ado... here's the jest of it.

The Plot:

Marketing assistant Kayla Morgan has just been asked to show off her hidden bunker to a wild-eyed British Rocker who wants to shoot a new video underground. Though Kayla hesitates, she is forced into giving in to help the business.

Enter the hero - Sebastian Cox is the typical rock star. Meeting Kayla fires his senses, but he can't seem to understand her logic. Living one day at a time is definitely more his style.

But, in the midst of the tour an earthquake strikes and leaves the pair locked inside Kayla's bunker for three days. A slightly humorous and sensual awakening ensues. I mean what would you do if you were locked in a bunker for three days with a hot hunk?

The Verdict:

Fast and Sexual. A scarred hero, a feisty female, and an unusual situation. Ms. Bacio take a bow. I truly believe that this story could be loved by all. Two opposites attracting, danger, sexual escapades... I really wish this could have been longer. Don't get me wrong, the story is told completely and the reader is left wanting for anything.... except MORE. I so didn't want this story to end. I want to know what their next five and ten years will bring! Very rarely do I ever get this attached to actual characters. So, to make it official....

       It's a "Five Cups of Love" read!
