White Chocolate Moments by Lori Wick

3 Stars
White Chocolate Moments tells the story of young Arcineh Bryant and her grandfather, wealthy business owner, Sam Bryant.

Arcineh is eleven years old when she loses her parents in a traffic accident and moves in with her grandfather, Sam. She lives a life of privilege but is scarred from the loss of her parents. When her grandfather begins to play family favourites with his other grandchildren, Arcineh feels rejected and finally leaves in search of love and acceptance.

The first half of the novel describes Arcineh's childhood and provides the foundation for her later actions as an adult. The story moves along at a slow pace but picks up when Arcineh steps out to seek her own life and identity. While the outcome is predictable the different characters, especially Arcineh's new friend Jalaina and romantic interest Gage Sefton, pique interest in the ending.

If you enjoy a slow-paced, gentle romance Lori Wick's latest offering should not disappoint.

i've never been a big lori wick fan. i didn't like most of her other books..the female leads were always really wimpy and submissive. this one looks interesting, i might give it a try. is it like her other ones though?

and i'm not really digging the lead's first name...

I really enjoyed the book, i think she does get better with each series.
the name wasn't the easiest to pronounce but i did learn somethings in this book that i hadn't thought about before and that was good.
