This blog is dedicated to both fiction and non-fiction. My personal favorites in fiction are mainly contemporary romance, suspense thriller, historical fiction and YA then in non-fiction, I love to review inspirational, self-improvement and finance related books. I review outside these genres also because of the fact I love to read.
There are certain books out there, you just don't want the story to get rid off your mind so that it can remain with you for some more time. I had the same feeling when I finished reading this wonderful novel by Shantel Tessier. I would also say I had a mixed feeling towards the novel. I t was hanging somewhere in the middle of whether to like or not like(because of Slade).
It was nice reading it in the beginning .I just wanted to lose myself in the novel. At the same time, I would've liked the story to be some what different. I liked Samantha. She was so perfect in all the right places. She is kind, pretty, caring and also independent. After Jax left her, She could have had any man(I mean Good man) she want ,instead she chose Slade.I swear I didn't really like her being with him after she split from her ex. When she first met him, she was very hard on him. I would have liked her to remain like that for few more chapters.
There could be only two good reason why I don't want Samantha anywhere near him. 1) He treats women like shit 2) and also sleeps with different women daily as if he is going to get a trophy for that. Okay, he is handsome, I mean very handsome. But she is nothing like all the other women who fawned over him. Slade may be drop dead gorgeous but he even knows he is not the best match for her. As he himself calls her Angel(always), what does that make him ?Other than this I have to say I couldn't deny enjoy reading the novel even for a bit.
I felt very sorry for Samantha when she reveals her mother disowned her for 12 million dollars. I didn't really care about her mother as there were so many other things to worry about. There is something that grabbed my attention in the latter part of the novel. Suddenly, her mother reappears into her life after so many years have passed. I must really say this. I neither expected her to return nor I expected her to explain herself for the things she did.
On the whole, I had many issues with Slade and as for Samantha, I just loved her with all my heart. My favorite characters after Samantha is a Couple, Slade's brother Micah and his girlfriend, Holly. Holly is very luck to have him as her boyfriend. I wish every men in the world are like him. I also loved Josh and Courtney. If I have to sum up the novel into one sentence, I would say Love is truly blind. If you don't believe me, read this amazing novel and tell me what you think.
