A J Walters
A J Walters is a new contemporary romance author who made her first appearance on the indie circuit in December of 2013. Having interests in history, romance, and elements of erotica, she has brought all of these together in both her debut publication of An Acute Attraction, and it’s sequel, Constant Attraction. Wanting to break the trend of size 12 virgins in books, A J Walters has introduced a new real woman in Isabel Chambers. She’s a size 18-20, working single mother who now feels is it her time to start living her life again. At the ripe young age of 39, A J Walters also wanted to show that you can experience everything that a twenty-something would. “I saw that a 39 year old isn’t quite at retirement age for fun, sex and finding love again. There are so many women out there that can be represented in books as well as the slim, innocent and beautiful types. Don’t get me wrong I love reading books with them in, but there is so many of them around now I felt it is time for something different. I’d like to think I brought my sense of humor across in it as well. I am ditsy, I suffer from ’foot in mouth’ syndrome, but I can also be serious and sentimental. From the feedback I’ve had, apparently it makes for a great writing voice.” A J Walters currently lives in North Staffordshire, UK with her 2 children.
When the voluptuous and curvaceous, Isabel Chambers decided to take a child-free week away to Cambridge; never in a million years did she think she would meet the ‘God of a man’, Marc Chambers, Professor of Medicine.
Having been convinced by her best friend, Jackie Dowling to go for it, it was probably the best thing that could have happened…or was it?
Isabel and Marc have dark pasts, for which both are wanting to overcome. However, the jealous and conniving Dr Emelie Acerbi has different ideas and is determined to spoil what connection, relationship and possible future the two have together.
Can Marc and Isabel continue to share the passion and thrills they have for one another? Or will the demons from their pasts and present get the better of them?
Let Constant Attraction take you on an emotional journey of compassion, anger, laughter, lust and love.

An Acute Attraction
A J Walters

This is the sequel to ‘An acute attraction’ which you can read Orchards review of here: https://orchardbookclub.wordpress.com/2013/12/13/an-acute-attraction-by-a-j-walters/
Firstly I really enjoyed the first book and was excited to be lucky enough to get a review copy from AJ.
I still found Isabel to be a great character, she’s bubbly, funny and doesn’t take herself too seriously even with all her hidden drama. I liked watching her grow and was pleased she found her ‘for ever after’.
Marc is still swoonable! I loved that he adored Izzy, even when the supper slim and sexy bitch Emelie tried her luck… he was Isabel’s.
As for the story, I was impressed how it was written, it read more like a conversation and made me feel part of the story and helped me connect with all the feelings.
A J Walters has written the book well. Although the book flowed smoothly I must admit that I found the first 40% quite slow. I had mixed feelings over Emelie, I would have liked a nasty twist to the book but she didn’t really come through with the drama as much as I had hope. However Emelie still managed to go out with a bang!
All in all its a romantic story with a bit of sexiness, blackmail, past secrets, a twist and a ‘finding for ever after’ … hopefully 🙂
I will be keeping an eye out for A Js next books.
