Indigo by Amber Lacie

When I was younger, I read many of my grandmother’s romance books. Though I liked them, I was always frustrated with the wimpy damsel-in-distress female leads. None of us are perfect and we can all use help getting along in life, but the current love stories with stronger females are better. With this book, for example, the author spends a lot of time create a female lead, Indigo, who is strong and independent but is also flawed. She doesn’t NEED saving, but her life becomes a lot better when she finds someone who helps. I like that. The banter between the characters made me laugh a lot. It was easy to see the specific role each character needed to play. There wasn’t any wasted fluff and/or dialog just thrown in to take up space (which seems to happen more and more). I also felt like the author trusted her readers enough to get her point and see the story the way she did without banging us over the head repeating details we already knew. If you are a reader who enjoys love stories with “human” characters who are a perfect match for each other but sometimes needs a little help finding their happy ever after, then this story is great. It makes the reader feel good about love and smile at the characters.

 

Some girls are born independent and fierce. They constantly shock the world bringing it to its knees. Indigo Bryant is one of them. At the young age of thirty, she has already bought and sold a highly successful design business. Needing a change of pace, she up roots herself from New York City, to move near her best friend in a small town in Alabama. What was supposed to be a relaxing summer, starts to change into something different when she meets Alexander Clark…

Despite his many talents and charming personality, Alexander Clark can’t move forward and let go of the guilt from a horrible accident. His once promising baseball career, has now faded into the shadows. He’s paralyzed by the nightmares of his past. That is until he meets Indigo…

Not every girl needs a knight in shining armor. Not every girl needs to be saved.

Not every boy is a knight. Sometimes they are the ones that need to be saved…

 

I grew up in the Chicagoland region and now live in a quaint little town in Northwest Indiana. I have two beautiful children and husband who worships the ground I walk on (or at least he should). I’m an avid reader and I absolutely love books. Now I’m expanding that love into writing and looking forward to producing many books.
