Intimate Strangers By: Anne M. Strick *Review & Giveaway*

Title: Intimate Strangers
Author: Anne M. Strick
Genre: Romance/Social Issues

Book Description Via Amazon

Intimate Strangers is the rich, complex and passionate story of a contested adoption and of the two women who join to save a small boy's life. The book examines the various faces of love: erotic love and romantic love, the love of parent for child and child for parent; and what "really" makes a parent. The book's suspenseful focus is on the child's fate - and on the relationship between the women, law partners with widely divergent and equally traumatic histories; who battle on his behalf. The case strikes at the heart of each. Out of their own shadowy backgrounds, the women make a stunning discovery - and must decide what to do about it, and what to do about the men in their lives. This is a story of loss, of healing and redemption. And at the same time, a heartfelt plea for justice in our courts for the most helpless among us.


What I really enjoyed about this story were the characters. The women, Dru and Georgie, are strong but yet different, and just seemed believable and realistic. They work great together in the work realm, and despite their age difference, create a professional friendship. Their friendship does get tested though, as their pasts come in their way, and they learn something that they would never have thought was possible. Throughout the story, they are also working side by side on a case, including saving a young boy, and as said before, Georgie's past comes back to her, and this time vividly, as she retells some of it, to a man she thought she would never see or talk to again! With Dru, she is reminded of her past, but learns new things that help her understand someone that she has gotten to know very well, and she also meets a guy she can really, well perhaps fall for; she just has to believe in herself more and shut herself from her past. This whole story was a good mix of romance and social issues that are need of attention, and you'll just have to read this story, to really grasp the essence of justice and love.

My Rating: 4/5
I would say R-Rated (Some Mature/Sexual Situations)
