Brey Willows is one of my favorite authors. She is an expert with speculative and fantasy stories, so it is only natural that I try and grab her books as soon as I can. Lines of Love, the third book in the “Memory’s Muses Novels” is a great addition to the series.
This is the tale of Eris Ardalides, the Muse of Love. She no longer believes there is love in this modern world, so she has retired from her duties as a muse and works as a DJ in a nightclub she owns. When she finds herself being sued by a group of lovelorn folks who believe they would have found true love if she had only helped them, Eris turns to divorce lawyer Grace Gordon for help. Grace has had very little love in her life, but she still believes there is someone out there for her. But, they have to meet her standards, which are high. Grace offers to help Eris with the lawsuit, and attraction builds between them as they work together. The question is will they cross those lines they’ve built around their hearts?
This is a splendid story of two people who have either ceased to believe in love, or set the bar so high they might never recognize it. Grace and Eris are two characters that you will definitely connect with. Their journey to finding love and romance will keep you on the edge of your seat. There is actually a good deal of action and adventure in this narrative, which the author handled well. The overall theme of this novel though is love, what it truly is, how we need it in our lives and how our lives could be without it. I enjoyed how Willows showed this with her words as well as the actions of the characters.
This truly is an amazing fantasy/romance novel. It’s a great addition to the series, and I’m thankful I had the chance to read it.
I received an ARC from NetGalley and Bold Strokes Books for an honest review.
