SEPTEMBER ENDS is really two novels in one–two romances written by two authors in two different styles–but it all blends together beautifully. Hunter S. Jones wrote the prose sections, done in epistolary style through e-mails, blogs, and a diary, and her writing is seamlessly superb. Interwoven with this is the poetry of an “unnamed English poet”, whose work is bawdily enchanting and deliciously readable.
Those who read romance novels for the naughty bits may be slightly disappointed that the novel isn’t filled with graphic sex scenes; although there are some hot enough to scorch your eyeballs and other portions of your anatomy, SEPTEMBER ENDS is a love story, and although sex is a component, it isn’t the main thrust, as it were. It’s an absorbing story about a young woman saddened by the death of a beloved brother, a woman searching for a soul-mate to take the lamented brother’s place. And she finds the man of her dreams, she thinks, only to have her world crash around her ears. She can think of nothing to do but run, and in running, she finds…well, let’s not give it all away. Suffice to say that this is a book that engages one’s interest on many different levels. Its well-crafted eroticism will make you pant, but by the end, you may also find tears in your eyes. I found SEPTEMBER ENDS a thoroughly enjoyable read from start to finish.
