    One thought on “Soul Unique”

    1. 4 1/2 Stars. This book was wonderful. I've just started reading Gun Brooke's books, and this is my favorite so far. It was beautifully written, warm and made you feel good. The paintings were well detailed and described so you could see it in you mind. I can't remember reading another LesFic book with a main character having Asperger's, so I appreciate Brooke writing about it. The romance was sweet, but still passionate. And you grew to like both main characters very quickly.This book only makes [...]

    2. Move over Graeme Simsion and your Rosie Project. Gun Brooke has given us a interesting look at the life of a lesbian artist with Asperger's.I wasn't sure about this novel initially as the writing seemed stiff and stilted. I recognize that the author needed the reader to feel the robotic and logical approach Hayden Rowe took to every conversation with Greer. Expressions we take for granted can mystify someone who interprets things literally.I am happy I waded through the first awkward chapters as [...]

    3. This book is a feel-good romance about a talented painter with Asperger's and a gallery owner. Nothing excites art gallery owners more than to be the first to discover amazing and hopefully unknown talents they can showcase to the world (and make a ton of money doing it). Roped into visiting an art school run by the rich, pretentious and ambitious Leyla Rowe, gallery owner Greer Landon, inadvertently discovers just such a talent, but not among the students. Hidden away in an upstairs room is Ms. [...]

    4. Great read! one of the best book that i've read where one of the main character was dealing with autism/asperger and phobia of crowd of peoplewell defined and developed cast of characters.e never made her feel different just loved for who she waswell written and recommended to all

    5. I was provided with an ARC of this book via NetGally in exchange for an honest reviewReading this book was like slipping your feet into a comfortable pair of slippers after a long hard day at the office. I was 'in' the book from the very first page and didn't leave until I emerged, with a satisfied sigh, a few hours later.Here's what comes to mind as some notable/interesting points that may help others decide if the novel is for them (although, let's face it, you know you're in pretty safe hands [...]

    6. I loved this book and I think it might be Gun Brooke's best,which is saying a lot, because several of her books are regular rereads for me. She took some big risks and I think they really paid off. I'll definitely come back to this one again and again.

    7. My first book by this author. Truth be told, I had actually been interested in this specific book for a while now, but two things kept me away. I think, and I could be wrong here, but I think I had briefly tried one of the author’s other books and couldn’t get into it. It was a science fiction book, and if she hasn’t written anything like that, then I’m obviously thinking of someone else. (I looked it up, I am thinking of and indirectly referring to Protector of the Realm, the first book [...]

    8. So I initially gave this 4 stars, but after coming down from my food high yesterday and reflecting on the scene that had me lmao so hard a friend thought I'd lost the plot, I just had to increase it to 5 stars.It's just a really sweet romance told from one MC's POV which surprisingly paints the complete story for the reader rather well. This is me building up my age gap tolerance so I can deal with 'Truth and Measure'. :)

    9. This was a uncommon but nice and sweet read. I have never read a book with Asperger's syndrome before, but I really like how the author didn't make the condition the focus of the book. Hayden is just what she is, a remarkable lady who is lovely in her own way, Asperger or not. And Hayden's directness is really quite refreshing and endearing, especially in the funny scenes! The romance is very straightforward but still very sweet (with the requisite hot scene lol) and I would actually love to hav [...]

    10. I felt this book is pretty rushed, but writing in a Asperger Syndrome main character in lesfic is a first. Thanks to the author for introducing diversity.

    11. First off let me say that I am an aspie and I read it primarily for this angle (while appreciating the genre as well). You can get the gist of the story from the summary or other reviewers. This is the first book written by a neurotypical featuring a character with Asperger's that is done in such a classy and respectful manner that I have ever read. I got to sleep late last night as I was up finishing this, because of the aspie angle. Highly recommended. The writing is superb and so are the char [...]

    12. * ARC received via NetGalley.Soul Unique is about a talented artist, who has Aspergers and has been basically locked up by her overbearing mother, and the gallery owner who discovers her. Both Hayden and Greer are very interesting characters and play off each other well. It's very heart warming the way Greer supports, protects, and, encourages Hayden without treating her like an invalid. Their interaction is fun to read. The way Hayden takes everything so literal is very cute and there is a line [...]

    13. A sweet romance between Greer and Hayden, who is a brilliant artist who has Asperger syndrome. There aren't much twist and turns on the plot, except a psychotic mother who controls every aspect of Hayden's life until Greer comes into picture. Some of Hayden's straightforwardness actually made me laugh when reading the book, only it felt a bit short!

    14. Very well written and lovely story. The developing relationship between Greer and Hayden is heartwarming and intense. It was nice following Hayden's awaking into the outside world with the support from Greer. The secondary characters, with the exception of Leyla, were a great addition in the lives of Hayden and Greer. All in all a wonderful book of friendship, understanding and love.

    15. In all honesty this is probably a 3.5 star book, but I've rated it 4 due to the no half star ratings (which I truly wish would implement).Nothing happens in this book that you can't see coming from a mile away, but the characters do spend time together and the love story is sweet. The secondary characters also add value, although they could have been fleshed out more in some cases. Hayden's character is the true winner here, and I have to give Gun credit, usually books told in the first person [...]

    16. I absolutely loved this book. It was a really sweet story about unconditional love with characters I loved reading about. This book had me laughing out loud on so many occasions. I was very disappointed when the book ended because I could read so much more about these two beautiful characters and their growing relationship. I most definitely recommend this book.

    17. I really enjoyed this book and had a hard time putting it down.It is a bit short, and some things a little easy but I loved it.

    18. The best so farI have read all of Gun's books and this is the best so far. It was tender and sweet with great characters and engaging dialogue. Once I started reading I didn't put it down until it was over. The story moved quickly and it was over far too soon.

    19. This is the second time I read the book and I enjoyed it as much as the first time. It is a unique story, I think. It is about a romance between a gallery owner and a new artist she discovers, who happens to be an autistic woman. I know very little about autism, and the character in this story is identified as high functioning. The book likely skimmed over the real challenges of becoming emotionally involved with someone who has extreme difficulty communicating her feelings. Still, it was intere [...]

    20. I think the title says it all. Exceptional point of view on life, and what it takes to make it work. Loved this book!

    21. Good readOnce I became accustomed with the writing style it was a pretty good read with a decent plot and fairly well worked characters.

    22. I was honestly reticent about reading this book, I worried about the main characters' romantic relationship being unbalanced, unhealthy and frankly inappropriate, because let's face it, Hayden is autistic (Asperger syndrome) which make it a delicate subject to not only write about but also integrate romance in the mix. I gave in though and I'm glad I did so.Hayden isn't a mentally challenged person as I once feared, she is a functioning adult who has difficulties with social interactions and she [...]

    23. I was able to read this book courtesy of NetGalley.And it made me happy.I've have never dealt with anyone with Asperger syndrome, so I had to rely on internet research to clue me as to its details. I did this after I read the book, and I believe the portrayal in the book is accurate.The book made me laugh and it made me cry happy tears, and even if it doesn't contain a lot of the "drama" associated with romance books, it is still a very enjoyable read.I think it might affect those with contact w [...]

    24. DifferentI would recommend this to anyone who wants to read a book of true love and courage between two women and a very strong supporting cast of family and friendships. It leaps off the page to make one of the main character have a disorder that people judge and have very wrong ideas about was dealt with in a wonderful expressive way it could make you cry but also be so happy at the same time. If you read this book once it will not be your last you will want to meet everyone again thank you Gu [...]

    25. Very good bookI usually hate reading first person novels but this book was so amazing I hardly even realized that it was in first person. I was only paying attention to the lovely writing. I don't really like books where the characters start their romance so quickly after meeting each other but this book was good so I didn't mind.

    26. Fascinating because it is different. It is not often that you encounter romances featuring a main character who is on the autism spectrum. Or at least I haven't encountered many!The writing is a little stiff, but the unique main characters and immersion in the art world pulls the story through and makes it a worthwhile read. Thanks to NetGalley for the eARC.

    27. So it seems rather delibretly seeing as all books by the author have the same style, but really, what on earth is up with that cover? It's like a bad 3d-rendering of a 90s games , noteworthy especially for the story in part being about "art", seems like there could've been better fitting artwork to represent the story.

    28. *Via Netgalley*A talented artist and a gallery owner collides and romance happens. I always liked Gun Brooke's writing and this is another addition to the list of my favorites .This is going to be definitely a Reread.Loved it!
