REVIEW: what can I say about A Masterpiece of our Love? This story truly is a masterpiece. I can't imagine how Barrett has managed to conceive such a plot. I am awestruck at her use of imagery and words, every scene unfolded right In front of me. While the novel started out slow, the writing still captured my attention. But as the story progressed, the pace increased, and I was unable to move my eyes from the screen (I have puffy eyes to prove it). The storyline is very interesting with many twists and cliff hangers. Also, the way in which the story is written, I felt I was living Hunter and Becca's life with them. The characters were WOW. Each one with a fitting personality. My favourite character would have to be Hunter. I loved the way in which Barrett has portrayed him as a strong yet soft hearted guy. I loved the way she wrote of his actions towards his demons, and how he responded to Becca as compared to the other characters. The love between the two main characters is written beautifully. However, now I'm stuck waiting for the next book in the trilogy, and i feel like I'm stuck with Hunter and Becca, until I read the next one. The storyline is very different to your usual stories. It's filled with secrets and suspense at every point. I suggest you grab this and read it soon. You might just discover a few steamy scenes as well ;)
