200words (or less) review: I hadn’t heard of Jordan Lynde before reading Gold Rush but the cover caught my attention and once I read the blurb I was convinced. I can understand why Jordan Lynde has a large fan-base, Gold Rush is fun to read.
The characters, while plenty as all well thought-out and easy to keep up with. Iris is a good narrator and the relationships, both romantic as well as existing and new friendships, are believable. The banter between Iris and Rian is fun and I liked how their romance played out.
Towards the end of the book I thought Gold Rush slowed a bit but overall this was an entertaining read.
I’ll be keeping track of Jordan Lynde because I don’t think this will be the last of her works I’ll be reading.
