This review is Atomic Love by Jennie Fields. One of my favorite ways to rest is by curling up with a good book. Like movies and music, all genres appeal to me, and I give all books a chance to be ‘heard’!
Atomic Love by Jennie Fields
I’m a hopeless romantic and adore historical fiction novels, so I was looking forward to reading Atomic Love by Jennie Fields. While I wasn’t super disappointed, I was slightly disappointed with the ending. Here’s a quick rundown of what happens –
It’s 1950 and Rosalind Porter is a scientist working on the Manhattan Project in Chicago. She meets and falls in love with a newly arrived fellow scientist, Thomas Weaver. After a three-year love affair, Weaver unexpectedly dumps Rosalind with little reason and then disappears.
This book is also available with Kindle Unlimited Membership Plans.
Now Weaver is back five years later and acting as though he and Rosalind never split. There are speculations about his vanishing all those years ago and caused a deep depression for Rosalind. She’s uncertain about falling back into a relationship with her especially when an FBI agent is telling her Weaver is a Russian spy working against the US.
Rosalind finds herself torn between her loyalty to the country and her past love. She’s not quite sure what to do and lies are spilling forth with every turn. She wants to believe Weaver is innocent, but the evidence is stacked against him. It’s up to her to save the country she loves by betraying her love.
This may seem like a love story but I don’t think it is – not really. It’s more about espionage and the atomic bomb than love. Yes, the love affects their actions but it’s not lovey-dovey like the title suggests. As I previously stated, I was disappointed with part of the ending, but overall it’s a good big. I give it three out of five stars.

Book of the Month Club
I enjoyed books so much that I joined the Book of the Month Club to continue receiving the latest and greatest books via mail. Some of the books are exclusive to BOTM club members a month prior to their official publishing date! Each month I’m excited about the monthly selections, and it’s tough to select just one. (And when I can’t decide on one, I can add additional books for a small add-on charge and – as always – shipping is included in the monthly membership fee.) Can’t find one you want? That’s okay, too! Skip a month, pocket the credit to spend next month, and you won’t be charged for that current month.
