Book Review: The Sun and The Moon by Leslie McAdam

27206334She follows all the rules.

He’s going to teach her how to break them.

After a heartbreaking tragedy, successful attorney Amelia Crowley has numbed herself to the pleasures of life, clinging to a specific set of rules, finding strength in order and organization. When she meets easy going surfer Ryan Fielding, that organized life is turned upside down by a sea of washboard abs and sun-kissed hair.

Sexy and charismatic, Ryan looks for pleasure however he can find it in an effort to silence his own inner demons. Until Amelia crashed into his life the only thing he chased was the next wave. Refusing to break their connection and determined to break through her carefully crafted walls, Ryan sets out to throw out every rule in her book and show Amelia that pleasure can’t be planned.

Can Amelia let Ryan take the lead or will she cling to her rules and wipe out their chance at love?

Oh my. What can I say? I need a Ryan to break all my rules – which means I’ll need to make some rules first for him to break. But really, The Sun and the Moon is Leslie McAdam’s debut novel and it hits it out of the ballpark. It’s a refreshing take on a protagonist, Amelia, who’s proactive about her recovery from depression and willing to explore her biases regarding a few things, especially sex. She comes with a set of rules like only dial M for missionary and no guy ever spends the night. But the moment she meets surfer god Ryan, forget the rules because they’re there for the breaking – but with her full participation, no less.

I first read The Sun and The Moon on Wattpad and even then, I always thought Leslie’s writing as courageous and wickedly smart. She’s that rare writer who reminds me of a free spirit driving down the Santa Barbara coastline with the top down and the wind whipping through her hair. No holds barred courageous writing (hey, at least for me), sweet and oh-so-smart and sensitive characters destined to take you through a rollercoaster of emotions and a whole lot of naughty. So take that ride with Amelia and Ryan. You won’t regret it.
