Wow I ve never read an Ainslie Paton book before but that s something I m uickly going to rectify Ainslie Paton book before but that s something I m uickly going to rectify is the unlikeliest of heroes a homeless guy who ives in a cave on a cliff But Ainslie had me wanting to move in with him The emotion in this novel is so gripping and gut wrenching that at times I had to put the book aside just so I could breathe And when I wasn t reading I was thinking about the story and wondering how on earth Foley the council worker sent to evict him and Drum would get their happy ending It didn t feel Bringing the Empire Home like it glorified or glossed over homelessness and the issues surrounding it This is one book that s going to stick in my mind for a veryong time Holy crap monkeys that was incredibleLike I said in my comment here on Goodreads yesterday this runs against the grain And I oved every moment When someone creates a character that is so goddamn different from what is expected and makes you care about them and want to uncover the secrets and reasons that have ed them to this place I do thisIf you haven t read Inconsolable or Floored or any other Ainslie Paton work you are MISSING OUT There s no sugar coated fairy dusted everything *Is Awesome All The *awesome all the hers are real characters with real reactions and experiences that you can relate to or at Building the Cold War least understand I ve beenoving this author s uniue heroes For the romance genre which doesn t Canadian Art, Volume 1 (A-F) like to stray away from the duke and billionaire playboy storyines Ms Paton s heroes stand out Drum in Inconsolable is no different For starters he s homeless by choice The first three uarters are extremely entertaining where we see the heroine get to know this eccentric homeless suatter befriend him and eventually fall in Counter-Amores love with him without even sharing a kiss The development of their friendship was my favorite part of their story The bookost steam in the Dancing at Armageddon last uarter view spoiler first with the accusation then the separation hide spoiler Foley works for the city council in suburban Sydney Her new boss wants her gone and to prove herself she takes on the impossible job to evict a homeless guy from a cave in a cliff above Bondi Beach The beach needs toook perfect in a few weeks when the city plans this outside sculpture exhibition thingDrum is NOT what Foley expected to find in that caveHe s a very HOT and intelli I approached Inconsolable with a degree of caution I Double Jeopardy like Ainslie Paton s books They re powerful with characters struggling to resolve who they are and what they re doing inife The issue I potentially had with Inconsolable was that with a homeless hero she might romanticise the issue of homelessnessHomelessness is a complicated issue one with a Composition and Literature lot of heartbreak wrapping around it Inconsolable had aot of tension between exploring the causes and conseuences of homelessness and reconciling it with the demands of the romance genre The hero has to be for Cezanne and Provence lack of a better word heroicIn the end as attractive as the hero Drum is it is the strength of the heroine Foley that makes the book work Because as a reader I could empathise with her struggles with Drum s homelessness and other non Drum issues I found the relationship.
