Give Me Books Promotions Book Review: The Girl Behind The Red Door

Title: The Girl Behind the Red Door
Author: Cassie Graham
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 Release Date: May 11, 2018


British. Charming. Virgin.

Reed Windsor doesn’t do relationships. Though he could charm the pants off any girl he wants, he’s not interested. He’s always been too captivated by a special someone from his past to get serious with anyone else. Sure, she has no clue he exists, but he’s willing to bide his time and convince her he’s worth a shot.

Sassy. Beautiful. Way out of his league.

Charlie Oded is full of baggage – being left at the altar will do that to a woman. Having zero time for distractions, she’s not looking for . . . well, anything. She needs time to heal her heart, not another guy to string her along. Which is why when she meets the alluring Reed, she’s determined to keep things friendly.

But he makes her heart race and she makes him want to settle down.

And neither of them wants to walk away.

Reed’s never wanted a relationship, but Charlie’s changed the game, and he’s willing to play if she is.

Review: Ah, this book is just sweet, almost cavity inducing sweet. It is also part of the reason why I'm drifting back into romance novels. This book was different, and when it comes to romance, I need something that is different.

So what's different about this book?

1. Charlie, our heroine is 5 years older than Reed. I have to admit I wasn't sure how I felt about it, because my logical brain kept saying, he's still in college and she has a business how is this going to work? But it does and I love them both.

2. One of them's a Virgin....and it isn't Charlie.

3. Charlie is really a fun character. She's not wishy washy. She has friends besides her guy.

4. Anakin the chinchilla. I mean...what book has a chinchilla in it?

5. Reed has had a crush on Charlie since he was about 12! How sweet is that?

Charlie was left at the altar so she's a bit skittish about getting involved, but it is pretty hard to resist someone as perfect as Reed. Reed is my third book boyfriend this year. I'm starting a collection of them!

The little bit of conflict at the end was the only thing that didn't sit well with me. There are lies that are meant to hurt and lies that are just simple white lies that do no harm. Charlie was a little bit dramatic and she dragged her anger out for a very long time when it was obvious Reed loved her.

This was the first book by Cassie Graham I've read, and I look forward to reading more!

Author Bio

A Moscato aficionado, and chocolate mistress, Cassie Graham is a born and raised Arizona girl. Her sass knows no bounds and almost always has something kind to say, no matter the situation. She runs a platform of love and strives to bring those attributes out in every book she writes.

Cassie studied English and literature in college and has an intense love for fairytales. Go figure. Though she loves a good fairytale, she promises to always put her characters through the wringer for that happy ending. She started writing early in her high school career after an English teacher forced her to write in a journal. Four years and thirty-something notebooks full of words later, she found her passion.

Being a hopeless romantic, she found her love for romance after she fell in love at eighteen. Stories became a lot easier to write after she found her soulmate. Love exists and she's blessed enough to live it every day.

If Cassie isn't shoulder-deep in writing a version of a fairytale, you can find her front porch sitting with her husband and daughter, eating all the bread, gossiping with her best friends, visiting Disneyland, supporting strong women, listening to cheesy music and reading great books by amazing people. She loves binge watching Supernatural, drooling over Dean, Sam and Cas, and going to conventions. She also enjoys spreading love any chance she can. So, if you run into her, give her a hug or a high-five. She guarantees they're magic.

Author of Unable to Resist, Anyone But Him, The Truth of a Liar, Enchanting Wilder, and Who Needs Air.
