EDITOR REVIEW: Passion, Power, and Privilege
The relationship between Brad and Kate feels so authentic in its development. Even though they get together fairly quickly, it never feels rushed. This interaction on their first night together exemplifies the organic quality of their coupling:
“It took her a moment to process that in his delicate way, he was wondering if he should send her home, or ask her to stay for more.
“I think,” she responded in a more serious tone, “that you can be both.”
He looked at her, not completely sure that they were talking about the same thing.”
This moment captures something very real about Brad and Kate’s growth as a couple. The ensuing conversation about whether she should stay the night refreshingly demonstrates that even though they are interested in each other, they aren’t in any huge hurry, and it’s lovely to watch them let the romance grow naturally out of their time together.
