The Art of Romance
Series: The Matchmakers
Author: Kaye Dacus
Author Kaye Dacus will ignite your love of romance with book 2 of her Matchmakers series. Dylan Bradley, who once illustrated steamy romances under the name Patrick Callaghan, has moved into his grandparent’s guest house in Nashville. Caylor Evans, having once written titillating novels under the penname Melanie Mason, lives with her grandmother. When their lives collide, due to the machinations of meddling matriarchs, the pasts of Dylan and Caylor threaten to derail their futures. Will they accept each other for who they now are—and once were? Or will they never discover the true art of romance?
THE ART OF ROMANCE is truly a delightful blend of art and romance. This inspirational novel explores the way our past creates our present and hopefully molds our future. There are many truths brought to light in this story and valuable lessons to be learned. Kaye Dacus has given us some wonderful secondary characters that truly support Caylor and Dylan in their search for love. This is a story too good to miss!
This is the second book in the Matchmaker series by Dacus, and it has a good mix of smart, fun and witty characters. The romance between Dylan and Caylor is genuine and faces everyday challenges that make it even more realistic.
This is an incredibly enjoyable novel…especially if you have a love of the creative arts. This book touched a place in my heart that has been dormant for quite a while. Now, I’ve broken out the sketch pad and pencils, inspired by this wonderful story.
Snazzy! This is one of those books that you must keep lying around the house to grab when you need a comforting old friend. The characters felt so real and so very familiar that it's hard to even explain. I loved the author meets artist scenario but I honestly think that my favorite part is that the characters don't really take themselves too seriously (well, not the main characters). It's really refreshing to see people who have many of the same character traits that I look for when choosing friends. For instance, there is a part in the book when Caylor is with someone who is drinking, quite a lot, I loved how she handled that and how nonjudgmental the players in the scene were with each other. Kaye Dacus writes a refreshing fun romance!!
I think that Kaye Dacus does a nice job of taking her characters on a journey where they truly do grow and change. They are not perfect people, some more flawed than others, but with God’s help trying to change and grow and become all that they are meant to be. I just think it brings hope to show the process and how they change, as opposed to,” they are perfect from the beginning and have it all together all the time”. Kaye Dacus always throws some cute humor in her characters as well, which makes it fun to read. It’s also a pretty sweet love story with just the perfect ending. So, if you’re in the mood for that sweet Contemporary Christian Romance- then I think you’ll enjoy this book. And the moral of the story- always listen to your Grandma.
A story that starts slow, but builds to a satisfying conclusion. With the involvement of meddling grandmothers, humor adds another weave to the story of wounds, romance and second chances.
