This coloring book is so much fun! With forty-five hand-drawn illustrations inspired by our favorite romance novels from an awe-inspiring line-up of amazing authors – you are guaranteed many enjoyable hours zoning out while coloring between the lines contained in these pages. This is a really cute coloring book with designs ranging from simple to very intricate, each one providing hours of coloring fun.
For the purpose of my review, I chose two designs – one simple and one detailed. For the simple one, I used fine tipped markers and for the detailed one, I used colored pencils. The paper is just thick enough that the markers bled through just a bit, but did not ruin the next page beneath. I think that next time, I will put a plain sheet underneath just to be sure that all is safe for the next coloring adventure. Each drawing is one-sided so you can remove a page to work on without ruining another picture. None of the drawings are overly complex in my opinion and perfect for a stress free relaxing coloring session.
If you like to color, then I highly recommend this book. I, for one absolutely love Ms. Collie’s designs and can’t wait to start another session!
