Letters to Kelly HERO Tyrone Jackson Winchester II — HEROINE Kelly O'Brien — LOCATION Boston and Cape Cod Massachusetts — Either Way He Was A Condemned Man — So here I sit writing letters that have no hope of reaching you until I am free to deliver them myself With luck that will be soon For your eighteenth birthday is coming and I intend to be there like I promised For years a trumped up charge and a Central American prison cell kept Jax Winchester from claiming the girl he loved Now he was a free man Or was heFor only the memory of Kelly O'Brien and the letters he'd composed to her had kept him going But once he was released he knew he was still a prisoner in a jail of his own making The way out this time Keep that promise he'd made to Kelly all those years ago and claim her for his own I read this one long ago; it's still enchanting Opening Line Kelly O'Brian lugged her heavy canvas bag of books into the back door of the university newspaper officeThis was an awesome little read that took me all of about 3 hours to finish and gave me everything I could possibly want in a romance Charming super fun and sexy This story also contains a reunited lovers theme which is one of my personal favourites and comes complete with a sensitive somewhat tortured and very cute beta hero as well as the hilarious historical romance character he’s writing and bantering with throughout The character talks backLetters To Kelly was also my very first foray into the world of Suzanne Brockmann Why I’ve waited so long I have absolutely no idea?? Because if this little book without a Troubleshooter conspiracy or Navy Seal in sight is any indication of her talents then I’ve got a ton of fantastic reading ahead of meAfter agreeing to take his best friends little sister to prom T Jackson Winchester II thankfully also known as Jax suddenly see’s the 16 year old Kelly in a whole new light Realizing that he’d actually been in love with her for years this was a bit of an ick factor considering he’s known her since she was 12 He admits his feeling to her that very night and promises that the second she turns 18 he’ll propose Kelly’s brother later catches them in a compromising situation and threatens to have Jax arrested unless he leaves town Kelly never hears from Jax again and when her 18th birthday comes and goes she’s heartbroken Little does she know that for the past 2 years Jax has actually been a prisoner in a South American Jail He hasn’t forgotten Kelly or his promise but without any way to reach her he starts composing letters to Kelly in his mind The letters also serve to keep him sane and were another great aspect to this book By the time Amnesty international steps in and frees Jax Kelly has moved on and married someone else The meat of this story takes place 3 years later with our persistent hero fighting to win back the woman he loves while maintaining a successful career as a romance writer My absolute favourite parts of this book other than the scene with the suntan lotion would have to be the scenes where Jax is writing his historical romance novel and arguing with its hero Jared And anyone even slightly interested in the craft of writing will appreciate these clever and often hilarious scenes So it seems I’ve now joined the league of Brockmann fans Cheers “Don’t use words like bitch and dude” Jax reminded him tiredly “You live in the 1860’s or have you forgotten?” “Look at you” Jared ignored Jax’s uestion “You look like total crap ” “Crap Another fine word for a historical romance hero” “ You haven’t showered in days and your drinking beer at 9 o’clock in the morning ” “Morning night what’s the difference anyway?” muttered Jax 3 starsI would've loved this one a lot if the heroine wasn't so annoying and IMO unreasonable I loved T and the letters Even T's romance novel was funeven though it had a secret baby plot lolHere's one letter Dear KellyAnother day dawns and I am still here in this damned miserable cell But then you come if only in my dreamsYou come after sunset Tonight you are sixteen and when you smile I suddenly realize you are wearing your prom dress You are so beautiful my heart nearly stops beatingYou lean forward to kiss me and I can feel your soft lips smell your perfume You take me with you back in time and for a while I am out of here I sit with you in my sports car wearing my tuxedo and we kissYou are still so young and I still don’t know any better I can’t stop myselfI love youLove T 275A few things I struggled with The author waited till the very end of the story for the hero to tell the heroine about his time in prison Why? Why why WHY? It’s a big thing to keep a secret and was one of the reasons that kept them apart for years and she didn’t know about it and kept thinking he abandoned her Drove me nuts Jax was in prison for 2 years in Central America He was beaten whipped and punished severely So where the hell are all his scars? You can not tell me he didn’t walk away from that without a few physical scars I was waiting for Kelly to see one and ask him about it butnope It was very conveniently missing Contrived and totally disregarded detail of the hero’s past history It was such a contrived loophole to keep the secret going The hero is a total sweetheart he’s romantic affectionate sexy and leads with his heart and just wants the woman he loves Nothing wrong with that But I felt he was a little too emotional at times and his reactions were a bit much in some cases I guess I wouldn’t have minded it as much if the heroine didn’t keep pushing him away and coming off so cold and detached I honestly didn't see what was sooooo wonderful about Kelly that had Jax jumping through hoops to get her to give him a chance shrugs Hated the hero’s name Tyrone Jackson Winchester III Blech It's a mouthful and the countless nicknames were no better He likes to go by Jax which is lovely but for some inane reason the heroine prefers calling him Tyrone or T Jackson cause that sounds so much better RME or just T in some cases What the hell kind of name is T Jackson anyways? Hated it So there’s Tyrone T Jackson Jax and T The author kept flip flopping with all the different nicknames in the dialogue It’s very inconsistent And why Kelly couldn’t stick to calling him by one name irritated me The dialogue and plot were a little too corny for me I would have loved the love letters if they weren't in present tense and summarizing everything in 1st person narration Meh
