Review for Reflection By: Elene Sallinger

When Two Bodies Collide...

The moment Bridget Ross and Connor Reynolds run into each other on the street—quite literally while out on a run—tempers flare. But when the two get together for an apology coffee date, it's clear that the coffee isn't the only thing steaming.

Connor is a charming artist without purpose. His own tragic past prevents him from putting down roots or committing to anything. Bridget is feisty but guarded. She's aching to fill a void in her life but is wracked with guilt over her past and denies herself true pleasure. Can this gorgeous man tempt Bridget to finally succumb to her desires?
My Review:
This is the first book that I have read from Elene Sallinger and this will not be the last…. I really enjoyed this story. This book is written beautifully and is such an easy read. I didn’t want to put this book down!
Bridget is a beautiful, gorgeous, and sexy older woman. She is a professor at the university and she is all about her work and her students. Helping her students is her passion. Bridget is what you would call a closed book due to her past and I don’t blame her at all. I really love this character! While reading this book all I wanted to do want take her and put her in my pocket and keep her safe.
Conner is well Conner. He is a 28 years old man, who is sexy, rough, and talented. (If you know what I mean) Conner has had a rough life and he hides his past very well. He is that type of man that likes what he wants when he wants it. He is a janitor at the university and well most woman do not want a janitor as a lover. Me….I am not that shallow, I am just saying. LOL
Bridget and Conner meet while running and their encounter leaves each other wondering what in the hell just happened. Bridget was rude and running her encounter with Conner over in her mind. She wished she knew who he was so she could ask him to forgive her rude behavior. Once they see each other again it is a world-wind. I love the chemistry these two have, but it isn’t always a happy ending it is?!
I want to go on and on about this book but I won’t, because I want you to read this and see for yourself. All of the characters in this book are lovely and I want to know all of their stories. Let’s be honest here everyone has a story whether it is pretty or not. Well let me be 100% honest, there is one character in this book that I hated and I would be happy to kick his ass any day of the week.
Book 1 is Awakening
About the Author
