I recently finished reading Lemon Curd by Homa Pourasgari. The book is a romantic tale about a modern day American workaholic woman (Anna Lisa) and her Brit coworker (Neil) that comes overseas to share her office space, much to her dismay. They get off to a rocky start and instantly dislike one another. Their relationship slowly evolves into friendship. And eventually strong feelings are developed. Yet every time you think these two will find their way to one another, something rips them apart. This book delves deep into the inner workings of romantic relationships, familial relationships, friendships, and the relations between coworkers.
I find myself being able to predict the next turn a book will take most of the time, but with this book I was surprised again and again. I love that. I found myself relating to Anna Lisa more than I thought I would. The constant worrying about her weight, the constant worrying about her boyfriends true feelings, the need to do everything on her own. The loneliness that she felt because of the loss of her parents. This story was a definite page turner and I hated the times that I had to put it down. It was also extremely well-written.
About the Book: The independent Anna Lisa Gibson is an account executive at a prestigious marketing firm and is used to having her own way. When she’s forced to share her office and her client with a Brit from their London office, she’s more than displeased. Unlike her boyfriend, she finds him rude, disagreeable and not at all attractive. But as she gets to know him, she regrets judging him so quickly and gradually becomes his friend.The handsome and engaged Neil Scott Whittaker has a lot more than friendship in mind. Although he and Anna Lisa had a bad start, he can’t control his attraction toward her. As their friendship deepens, he wonders what it would feel like to spend one night with his office mate.Yet romance is only a part of this story. From the streets of Los Angeles to the streets of London, Lemon Curd depicts the millennium lifestyle – Women’s position in the business world, the workaholic and multitasking attitude of our society, the unscrupulous act of taking what we want without thinking about the consequences of our actions, the sociopolitical atmosphere of the 21st century and the difficulty of balancing family and work life while trying to make a difference in the lives of the people around us.You can learn more at the book's website.
