ARTISTIC PURSUITS is a tough one to review because I cannot say that it really made an impact on me. I enjoyed Frank and Leslie’s story, but just didn’t feel completely invested in their relationship. I felt that their emotional development moved too fast for me, not really giving me the time to really catch up or feel it. I also didn’t feel that Leslie’s accent was authentic. There are many repetitions of the same words, so that kind of took away from his character I think.
Frank Jennings is an FBI agent while Leslie Carlton is an Interpol agent. Already sounds like a good read, right? One of the things I liked about this book is their pursuit for something that requires both their attentions. Their pursuit pushes the book forward, giving it that suspenseful kick that I love to read in any romance.
I’m hoping to read more of Andrew Grey’s work considering that the sex scenes were pretty smoking. I just hope next time the accents aren’t so distracting.

I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
