RATING/REVIEW: ☕☕☕☕ (4 cups of soothing, slow burn romance!)
Bohemian is a modern day love story about two very different people whose common love for the written word brings them together and in the end may drive them apart. Lucia and Calvin never would have met in the same place except for the presence of The Mad Ones, an old fashioned bookstore found in the beautiful area of Big Sur. Lucia is a supermodel, at the age of 26 what use to thrill her has been leaving her bored almost. When a scheduled shoot in an old fashioned bookstore suddenly fans the flames of her love of reading she starts yearning for more. Calvin inherited The Mad Ones from his beloved grandfather. His grandfather's love of reading and his lifestyle has always brought joy to a young Calvin but he never really subscribed to that way of life. When he meets Lucia he might have been starstruck for a bit. What does a geeky nerd like him have in common with a beautiful woman like her. When he finds out they have more things in common, something wonderful develops between them. But reality has a way of intruding and pretty soon they might have to say goodbye.
Bohemian has taken the opposite attract trope and incorporated it into a world where books becomes the central theme. Here we have characters that are at a crossroads in their lives and when they meet there isn't fireworks nor a sudden attraction but what makes it so worthwhile is that they start out with their love of reading. It's a bookworm's romance! The setting of Big Sur, an old fashioned bookstore and two people discovering themselves and each other, what more can a romance reader ask for?
Two souls, drawn together beneath a fierce sky…
Calvin Ellis’s neat and orderly life is shattered when his grandfather dies, leaving him ownership of a quirky bookstore in Big Sur, California. The Mad Ones: once a place famous for poetry readings and bohemian rebellion, it now teeters on the brink of financial ruin.
Lucia Bell’s glamorous life as a super model is put into stark perspective when she shows up for a photo shoot, at a bookstore, in the middle of nowhere. She finds herself oddly intrigued by the quiet, nerdy owner with the huge glasses reading behind the register.
One night they share a passionate and frenzied kiss against a bookshelf. Outside the store, lightning strikes. Trees topple. And the world shakes beneath their feet.
As the storm tears its way through Big Sur, Calvin and Lucia share and explore their most secret desires. Hopes and dreams they once thought lost are recaptured. But inevitably, as reality roars back, they find themselves stuck at a crossroads.
Two conflicting paths. And each must make their own decision.
Which life will they choose? And will it include the other?
