Bohemian Patience by Misty Walker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Bohemian Patience is book 3 in the Traveler series. I have not read the first two books but I had no problem jumping right into this story (in fact, this is my first read from author Misty Walker).
Freedom and Essie are gypsies. They’ve lived their lives according to the Romani culture. Now, as is tradition, it’s time for Essie and Freedom to come together in an arranged marriage. They don’t know each other, not even their real names but they’ll soon learn what being husband and wife is truly about.
The first thing that caught my attention was the beautiful cover. Now normally, I’m all about the shirtless dude with rippling muscles but I can’t deny how gorgeous this cover is! And kudos to Ms. Walker for writing such fab characters!
Essie is gypsy, no doubt, but she doesn’t exactly agree with the way women are treated within the Romani culture. She’s headstrong and has certain dreams that a traditional gypsy shouldn’t have. So being forced to marry a man she doesn’t even know frankly just pisses her off! I ADORED the ferocity of this woman, she knew what she wanted in life and she was determined to get it. BUT there were times I wanted to throttle her too because Freedom was AWESOME! He was so sweet and accommodating and thoughtful. I mean, he didn’t know anything about Essie either but he was willing to learn and he truly wanted her to be happy. Plus…that name!
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed dipping my toes into the gypsy way of life as this was my first read about this fascinating culture. I’ll definitely be visiting again! Told from dual POVs with a happy ending. I voluntarily read and reviewed this book.
