I would like to say that every book I read this past year was simply amazing but I would be lying!!! Unfortunately I did have to DNF a few books and low rate some others which was so sad because I so didn’t want to have to be disappointed in reading.
I would have loved to have this book be amazing like I expected but it was a bit of a disappoointing read unfortunately. Especially in how the hero treats the heroine. Of course he has money and is really successful and suffering from a bout of amnesia but he is a jerk in this book and it really puts down the story in ways I didn’t care for too much. Now granted there were some redeemable moments but it was not what I was expecting since I have loved reading this author in the past.
I have loved this author so much in the past, but I just couldn’t get into this one, I just couldn’t feel the connection for this story and I felt a bit bored which is a novelty when it comes to her work.
I know I know, I am probably the only person on the planet right now that didn’t care for this book but its true. I just could get truly invested in the story until the end, I felt like I was forcing myself to read it and the only reason I didn’t put it down earlier was because pretty much all of my blogging friends RAVED about this book so I just knew I had to give it a shot and I did and was so disappointed. It just didn’t click with me, it was probably just me but the story just dragged way too much for me to really enjoy it.
I had grabbed this book as a audiobook, now I am not sure if it was because it was a audiobook and the narrator just didn’t work for me or what, but I just couldn’t find myself interested in this book and I SO wanted to be into this but felt so “bleh” about it. I do plan on picking it up in printed or ebook format one of these days because I would hate to have to give up on this book completely.
This was an ARC and yeah normally I force myself to just get through these books if I receive it through a publisher or author, but this book was so CONFUSING!! I have read this author quite a few times and enjoyed her work. However, this book just gave me a headache and put it down and had to DNF it. Which was really difficult especially when I wanted to enjoy it but just didn’t.
I loved the first book and had no issues with it. However I really was disappointed in this one. My big problem with this book was that it felt like a contemporary romance and it drives me crazy. I don’t care too much for modern heroines in a historical romance—I mean I am reading a HISTORICAL….so I want a historical type heroine. Just some of the phrases the heroine would say is so 21st century and just ruined my true enjoyment of the story as a whole. Even though there were other redeeming factors, this really made me want to throw the book against the wall.
