Just average for Sylvia Day
Reviewed in the United States on April 24, 2013
'A Passion for Him' tells the story of Amelia Benbridge and Colin Mitchell who were introduced in 'A Passion for the Game.' I didn't connect well with either of the main characters, especially Amelia. She came off as a shadow of her sister Maria, the female protagonist in Passion for the Game in that she was neither particularly interesting or strong. In fact, she came off as a bit spoiled and whiney.
Ms. Day is true to her formula of a beautiful, troubled woman who falls in love with a dashing, impossibly handsome man who alternately plagues her and seduces her. All the pieces are there with the faithful servants, the understanding friend/would-be lover, the requisite sex scenes which are reasonably well written, the bit of danger near the end, and finally, the expected HEA.
Bottom line? The problem may lay with me in that I have read enough of Ms. Day's work that it has become boring in its predictability.
