Review of The Horoscope Writer by Elodie Parkes

The Horoscope Writer

Dominic, a writer by trade, has been alone for a long while. As a writer, he makes his living by writing for several magazines, articles and even the horoscopes. When he meets Cassie, his world is turned upside down. He is so drawn to her, it is scary. He doesn't understand the attraction but loves it. Cassie feels the same way and the two have a whirlwind romance, full of sex and getting to know each other. Dominic, writes his articles and craves the woman he becomes almost obsessed with. He notices that when he writes for the horoscopes, that the things he predicts are coming true. His good friend's love life comes to life and bad things happen that he had foretold in a horoscope. But what will Cassie think and will a prediction ruin the budding relationship before it really even gets started?


This was a cute story about a new set of lovers, how they meet and people over thinking things. Dominic, needs to learn how and what he truly wants. Cassie knows what she wants and is just as attracted to Dominic as he is to her. The book was cute and had a decent story line but even though it was short was a little slow. I wish more would have been tied into the Horoscope stuff too, add more paranormal aspects to it, I think that would have made the story a little more interesting. It is really a contemporary romance. The sex scenes are many and bring there attraction to a point because they do seem to be doing it like bunnies!  Over all the story was descent, the sex scenes many but not scotching hot. If you are looking for a short contemporary, this may be for you.  3 out of 5 stars
