All That Glitters (All That #1)
By Tracy Krimmer
Genre: Contemporary Romance / Women’s Fiction
Age category: Adult
Release Date: Summer 2017
Country-music star, Dory Walker, never wanted to come back to the small town of Sycamore Bay. But after her fairy-tale life is flipped upside down, and her marriage becomes a casualty, she has no choice.
Harris Malone is a man with few commitments. He keeps a low profile most days while he cares for his young daughter and helps run his dad’s hardware store.
But when he and Dory run into each other at the local gas station, all either can think about is the searing kiss they shared many years ago.
Can a woman who only wants to rekindle her career and a man who enjoys a no-strings attached lifestyle find everlasting love?
All That Glitters was a nice read, very easy to follow and get lost into. However, the characters read very two-dimensional. Dory was consumed by her pride most of the time and it gets really annoying at times. Her prejudice gets the best of her and it was really irritating to read. I almost did not finish the book because of her.
Harris was Too Great. Seriously, where is the character flaw? And the way he fell in love with Dory was a little too shallow for me. It was too sudden. Dory was The One That Got Away and they picked up exactly where they left off. That’s not even realistic. It’s not very satisfying to read.
Overall, I was expecting the characters to grow into better versions of themselves. I was expecting the struggles, sure, but I also wanted the clarity of mind and resolution of crises in a logical and realistic way. A lot of things are maybe plotted and outlined but didn’t get fleshed out well. I would recommend for another round of line edits. It would have been a nice premise to start with, though.
