When I read the blurb for this book, I was really excited. I love books of this genre and I love cocky arrogant alpha males. So with that in mind, I was kindly approved to read it from the publisher.
So as you can read in the blurb, the main characters are Violet and Adam. I didn’t really take to either character. Violet was a little naive and whiny and Adam seemed a little bipolar. The way he spoke didn’t sit with his age and whilst I’m aware that a lot of younger men can talk with a lot of wisdom, this just didn’t ring true for Adam. He contradicted himself a lot. I’m sure the author thought this would add depth to his character but for me it turned me off.
The chemistry that Adam and Violet had was ok, but they seemed to be at wars with each other more than they clicked and I found Ann and Violets relationship (as best friends) not that best ‘friendy.’
I really did like the storyline and that sort of saved it for me. The writing style was good too and I do enjoy stories in the first person. The author has definitely got the plot right it just overall didn’t click, for me, anyway.
I would however read other books by this author.
Happy Reading 🙂
