Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Lambda Literary Award finalist for lesbian romance.

Love or money? Follow the head or heart? Pia and Cate seem to be flip sides of a coin. But when they meet they definitely have that certain something, and these questions aren't so simple after a night like theirs.

Pia Benitez-Smith has her head in the clouds of ideals and romance. She's a photojournalist out to prove herself with her compassionate eye and although not exactly accident prone, most days trouble seems to find her. On one such day, she literally falls into the arms of the beautiful Cate. Elegant, intriguing and classy, Cate is Pia's polar opposite. When the two dispute the importance of love versus money, Cate is adamant that her perfect night will always be an expensive one. Working class Pia can't resist the challenge and with the assistance of a beguiling summer night in London, she begins to enchant her new friend.

An irresistible couple, a charismatic city, a priceless supporting cast - That Certain Something is a sparkling romcom from Goldie award winner Clare Ashton.

-----

“It truly is sensational. A real heart-warming tale of romance, love, and comedy” - Kiki Archer, author of One Foot Onto The Ice

“Award-winning author Clare Ashton, who has enthralled us with Pennance and After Mrs Hamilton, has done it again. Only this time, she has written a lighthearted, touching romance that grabs hold of your heart and doesn’t let go. Through Ashton’s deft storytelling, you’ll easily fall in love with Pia and Cate—two women searching for That Certain Something that will make their lives complete.” – Chris Paynter, author of Survived By Her Longtime Companion

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Utterly Charming, Deliciously Satisfying 22 mai 2014
Par T. T. Thomas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I've been a big fan of author Clare Ashton since reading and reviewing her first book, Pennance. Flash forward three years, and I'm happy to report her newest work, That Certain Something, is an utterly charming, deliciously satisfying, laugh-out-loud London tale of two people who seem far too different to be anything other than an accident waiting for "News At 11" helicopter-borne camera coverage.

I'll leave the synopsis of the story to others, but it's enough to know that when freelance photographer and ever-ordinary (maybe) Pia Benitez-Smith falls out of a tree practically into the arms of the award-winning journalist and ever-sophisticated (maybe) Cate, it's not just the squirrels who savor the nuts. These two impossibly different, yet individually exciting, characters have everything it takes to start a riot, a war or the hottest love scenes one could imagine. They are magnetic, to one another and the reader, and the supporting characters have been fashioned from Ashton's skilled, hilariously imaginative and hugely talented mind to reach inside you and twist your heart which is already thumping hard from laughter and alarm and more than a few 'oh my gawd, no!' responses of a completely captivated reader.

You are Clare Ashton's ward when you read That Certain Something, and she will take exquisite care of you...even as she threatens to lower you unceremoniously from mansion rooftops, upside-down and bare-assed! You will see a glimpse of this cacophony of literary magic early on in the book, and you'll find yourself asking to go along for the heart-warming, funny, funny ride.

Ashton has so skillfully mastered the timing and visuals of the humor and comedy of this tale that it's impossible not to feel great both during and after the reading. Her sense of place is magical and unobtrusive, capturing not only the excitement of the London landscape, but also the sentiment, the sentimentality and the struggle of change between the old and the new. We watch as modernity creeps through the rolling lawns of well-manicured mansions, owned by people of privilege and title who struggle, or not, to embrace and accept their own place in a tabloid world with old school DNA coursing through veins too tired to object and hearts too full of love to refuse. We relate to Pia and her warm, loving, and all-too human family as Pia brings both the love of life and her humble but honest experiences to Cate, a mysterious amalgam of brains, beauty and a closet full of fabulous clothes...and a few other things that shape her character, Pia's assumptions and the story.

Ashton reminds us that London is the perfect metaphor for how things were, how things can be and the absolute impossibility of getting from one to the other without a full spectrum of human experience to mentor the hills and valleys of change--to cry a bit, to laugh a lot, to love endlessly, passionately and without regard for conventions---the old ones and the new ones that think they are free of convention!

The secondary characters, particularly, Pia's mama, Cate's grandparents and Ed, tough old lesbian with heart of marshmallow secured into a ball covered in wire mesh and locked with a deadbolt, are memorable and perfectly drawn. They complete what is actually an ensemble theater event that would be as at home on a stage or the Hollywood screen as it is on the pages of a book or an ereader.

Ashton's writing is smooth as glass in this one, and yet manages to layer texture, tone and timing into a love story that would burn down Londontown if it got any hotter! There's not a misstep in this wonderful novel, unless you count your own as you bump into walls while reading because you can't put it down! Read That Certain Something, and then give a copy to someone you like...you know, in THAT way!

The opening chapters of the book, which involve our leads first encounter, are wonderfully written and engaging. Unfortunately, the author cannot maintain this intrigue and instead resorts to clichés and ridiculous setups most often seen in Hollywood rom-coms. For example, in one scene, one of our leads Pia needs to relieve herself and resorts to a ridiculous option. Other scenes, meant to be humorous, are equally hyperbolical. At times, Pia behaves like a teenager; I lost count of how many times she was described as "pouting" with her lip stuck out. Cate, in contrast, is written as a cross between Grace Kelly and Princess Diana. Pia bemoans throughout the book that Cate is too good for her. Midway through the book, I started to agree with her. Cate's grandparents and other supporting characters seem like caricatures from a BBC Masterpiece Theater episode (grandpa is deaf, somewhat blind, but wields a shotgun). By the end, I was skimming just to get past the artificial drama created to generate a climatic moment ala modern romantic movies (Notting Hill, Imagine Me and You, etc). Since I read this book via Kindle Unlimited, I'm only out time (vs cash) . Just download the sample, tell yourself yada, yada, yada - they get together. You won't have missed anything.

Age of protagonists: Mid-late 20’s
Romance Arc: Really sweet romance at the beginning. Then it all goes to buggery.
Lesbian status One out and proud. The other ..not so much.
Sex Scenes: Some. Non graphic.
Happy Ending: Great ending.
Best Feature of story: Love the two main characters and was really invested in their getting together in spite of the circumstances. They felt to have a genuine connection which became more apparent even where the circumstances around them became more difficult. There were also quite a few genuinely hilarious parts of the story.
Worst Features of story It ended. What happens next??
Any supernatural elements: No.
Best suited for: Anyone who enjoys a romance featuring what would outwardly appear to be incompatible ladies - but you’re willing to take the time to get to know the characters .
Recommend to: People who like a good slow burn romance with lots of challenges before we get a happy ending.
Would read other books by author, based on this one: This is a great read and yes, am actively looking forward to whatever she publishes next.

We all want a fairy tale sometime and this book was certainly it! I was totally obsessed with it from the first page. Pia was so darn sweet but could surely get herself into some predicaments. Cate was really just looking for love and she found it but how could she possibly claim it? Oh, the trials and tribulations of true love! It read like an adult fairy tale and was hoping for the fairy tale ending......I was not disappointed! Book was a joy to read because it was romance at its best. Editing was good, story was superb!! Will now read the other books by this author because she is a wonderful writer. Thank you so much, Ms. Ashton, for a really happy book!!!!
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Good summer read! 4 juillet 2017

I just pulled an all-nighter, since I couldn’t put down this book; which I started reading, because I was looking for something to wind down! I’m sure by now my new neighbors are wondering if I was drunk or high last night, or if I’m plain crazy. Because, while I tried to muffle my laughter, there were times when I couldn’t stop myself from blasting few good LOLs at, what might have been, the most inconsiderate times of the night.

I enjoyed everything of this book. From Pia’s encounter with the squirrel, to the shooting at Cate’s birthday party- which ended like “el rosario de la aurora”-, and the meeting at the station. Pia’s and Cate’s story is full of romance and tribulations, but written with a sense of humor that makes everything seem plausible. It’s definitely my kind of book!
