Overall Grade: 3.5 ⭐️
E. Davies’s Limelight is a story about overcoming the past and finding your peace in the future. It also focuses on the danger of lies as a foundation for a relationship, and Davies does a good job of laying out those messages.
At its core, I liked Tag and Caleb. Yet, I wasn’t bowled over by them, and I found myself wandering away from their story. Davies’s style isn’t the problem. It’s the choices for her heroes that I struggled with. First of all, I’m not a huge fan of insta-love romances. Sadly, you never know this as you enter a story, or realistically speaking, I probably wouldn’t have read this one. Tag and Caleb fall for each other at first look, and that’s strange to me.
They are sweet together, and there is the spice to offset the sweet, but it’s a little too sweet for this girl. Yes, Caleb and Tag encounter trouble due to withholding information, but it doesn’t ameliorate their sweetness.
If you love that insta-love type of romance, then you should definitely read Limelight. It just wasn’t quite right for this reader.
In love and romance,
