Alluring Indulgence Series
New York Times bestselling author Nicole Edwards launched her professional writing career in July of 2012. Having been an avid reader all of her life and a huge fan of creative writing, it seemed the likely path for her to take. Since then, she has released fifteen books and has no plans to stop. As her full-time career/hobby, Nicole writes steamy contemporary and erotic romances. Nicole is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author who was born and raised in Texas. Married with three kids and four dogs, she has plenty of interaction to keep her imagination brewing. Her books have been featured in USA Today’s Happy Ever After segment as well as Indie Reader’s best seller list. She has forged her way as an independent author. Although she has a bachelor’s degree in Human Resources, she prefers to be hiding out in her writing cave, talking to the fictional characters that have built up in her head over the years. When she isn’t writing or plotting her next book (sometimes translated to “playing on Facebook”), Nicole loves to read and spend time with her family and her dogs.
If you’re anything like me, you’re curious to truly get to know the parents of the Walker men after reading the Alluring Indulgences series. Curtis and Lorrie Walker raised some fabulous yet complex men. So it is incredible to finally read about their love in Curtis. And I was not disappointed – their story was everything I could ever want from a romance book.
Curtis starts in the middle of chaos and then it jumps back to 1962 – to the day where these to met. They are so young with Curtis just turning 17 and Lorrie is only 14. However, right from the start the connection was there – it was if their souls found their mate and even though they are children, it tethers them together for life. Slowly the passion builds between these two but more importantly, so does their friendship. Curtis and Lorrie became each other’s everything.
Each chapter brings their story forward in time, sharing all the moments that bonded this couple together. They essentially grow into the adults we all know and love right before your eyes. Just like anyone’s life, they have ups and downs – times that they celebrated and those that were hard.
The power of Nicole Edward’s writing ability is that I experienced all that they lived through. I could imagine falling in love the gruff Curtis and I hurt when Lorrie loses people that she loves. I swooned and cried. I laughed. Basically, it was as though I lived and loved a lifetime worth of memories in just a few hours, it was incredible.
I couldn’t put Curtis down – I think I felt every emotion available in my heart and I loved every single second of it. Curtis and Lorrie’s book was intense as well as fun but most of all it is truly a love story.
I think everyone should know the Walker family and meet their loves. Curtis is a must read recommendation from me.
