First of all, I know the saying ‘never judge a book by its cover,’ and, whilst I may use that saying in everday life, I have to admit I am terrible for judging a book by its cover when I’m picking a book to read. So with Becoming His, it really was a case of ‘ooh, that’s such a pretty cover, who cares about the blurb’ kind of moment….
Fret not though, I did actually read the blurb…..
Sometimes life’s unforeseen paths lead us to discovering sides of ourselves we never knew existed.
Ace Bosse has always found solace at home, but when she returns for the summer from college she builds an unexpected relationship with the reckless Max Miller.
Three years ago, Max left for Alaska to find what he thought he’d lost, but now he realizes just how much he left behind.
Max teaches Ace that sometimes a little crazy is exactly what life needs while learning that some chances are worth taking, regardless of the risks.
But how do you know when you’ve met the right person? And will they be prepared to experience one of life’s biggest obstacles?
Falling in love isn’t easy, but holding on to it is where the real challenge lies.
Becoming His, was a beautiful story of falling in love at an impressionable age and working through all the trials that life throws at you.
I thought Ace and Max had great chemistry and I really believed they were in love. They have a tempestuous relationship, one minute up and the next down. As with any romance it’s not just a case of ‘happy ever after’ and there were some struggles to overcome.
I found myself gasping and crying at some aspects of the book and all in all I found it a very beautiful read. All of the characters were strong and made the story whole.
The author really knew how to draw me in and I will definitely be reading more.
This is not a standalone and is part of a trilogy.
Happy Reading 🙂
