Good Kindle Intaglio: The Snake and the Coins (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to author Danika Stone.)Ava is an art student, and so is Cole. When they meet they’re instantly attracted to one another, but while they get to know each other a little better, they hold off from immediately starting a physical relationship.Ava and Cole have both had difficult upbringings, and have both had mother problems, so relate to each other completely. There is more to their history than either know though, as both begin experiencing vivid dreams in which they are together and then separated in a previous life.What is Ava and Cole’s real history though? How is this expressed in their art? And will the past repeat itself?This was an interesting read that delivered more than your average contemporary romance, with strong art themes and a side story of a relationship in a previous life.Ava and Cole were both quite serious characters, who liked to express themselves through their art. Their attraction to each other was heady and infectious, and sucked the reader right in, and it was easy to see how they felt about each other.I liked how the author incorporated both Ava and Cole’s different art forms into the story, and I liked finding out about the background to Ava’s work which was graffiti. It was really nice to see the way that the passion between Ava and Cole spilled into their art work, and how they supported each other when the other needed it.There was some sex in the story, but it wasn’t really erotic, and was dealt with quite maturely. I was a little disappointed by the storyline of the dreams though. All the way through the book we get glimpses into both Ava and Cole’s dreams, and get this tale of how they were possibly together in a former life, and that there may even have been a love triangle, but then the book ends without this being explained. I can only assume that this storyline will continue in the sequel to this book, but it just felt like there was a lot of build-up, without a big finale. I did enjoy the book overall though, and it will be interesting to see how this storyline develops in the next book.Overall; an interesting contemporary romance revolving around two artist who have met in a previous life.6.5 out of 10.
