Review of Love in Overtime by Sloane Easton
When Tucker stops to rescue a woman from a bad auto accident and himself ends up in the hospital, things seem on a downward spiral for him. Forced to give up his promising career in football, Tucker slips into a depressive state not wanting to face his mental and physical scars.
Ryan is a successful, self-employed dog trainer. He trains emotional support dogs for people with all different kinds of issues. After seeing the story about his ex-boyfriend on the news, Ryan decides to reach out and offer his services training a dog for Tucker.
** I would give this book 3 stars. Although I did enjoy the story and plot line, I really had a hard time with the style of writing. The wording and prose in this story felt rushed, unsophisticated, and simple. I like a story with beautifully descriptive language and scene development; letting the story unfold slowly and tell itself with details. Show the reader what’s happening, don’t just tell us. That being said, I have read one of Sloan’s other books and really enjoyed it. I did like this book, just could have used a boost in the language and narrative voice.
