Relationship Stories Family Drama

LoveReading Expert Review of Dominoes

This is a very well written, composed and thoroughly enjoyable love story. A chance encounter at an airport between Jake and Amy sends their worlds spinning in a new direction. Each has their own partners and commitments, but as their instant connection develops into an affair, the fear of discovery, jealousy and threats from outside could put everything in jeopardy. This relationship tale has a dark and thrilling edge that builds suspense and keeps you reading until the very end.

There are so many different ways that the author could have taken us with Dominoes, and the twists and turns along the way kept me gripped right to the last page. Only criticism is that I felt it stopped rather abruptly and unexpectedly.

There are darker elements to this love story and in true Domino style, everything that unfolds is the result of the briefest, simplest of encounters. I thought that this book was very well crafted and I really enjoyed reading it.

Dominoes Synopsis

Now Available on Amazon.

A chance meeting. One look.

And Jake’s life changes forever.

The girl in the red shoes. A stranger.

He can’t take his eyes off her. Or the man beside her, with a world-weary look on his face, who clearly doesn’t deserve her.

He should have heard the alarm bell. But it’s too late. He’s in it for the ride… for better or worse.

That one chance encounter sets off a chain reaction with consequences that race out of control - just like a line of dominoes ready to fall.

One touch and down they all go. But what impact does this have on commitments already made?

Find out in this compelling, contemporary love story.
