TBR reviewer: B.H.
since the beginning. Forcibly separated, Angelica is obligated to marry another man at her father’s convenience while Alexander is prohibited from ever seeking her out again.
Ten years later, however, Alexander is no longer the callow boy he used to be. Now an influential gentleman, he is bent on recovering the only woman he has ever loved. No matter the cost. But has their love withstood the ravages of time?
The Scene changes are abrupt and the characters are very one dimensional. There’s no depth, no emotion that made me need to read this entire book to find out what happened between Angelica and Alexander.
I’ve also never read such passionless sex before. These characters didn’t draw me in like the blurb did. She did this and she did that. He did this and he did that. Where’s the fire? Where the explosion of fireworks at the first gentle stroke of a man’s fingertips? This was all accompanied with the need for more editing. If I read the word ‘had’ or ‘felt’ again I might just scream.
This may be harsh but I so looked forward to reading this book. The true downfall to this book was the ‘telling’ and characters (and the sex, I was really in the mood for a passionate embrace.).
I really hope the author continues and grows because her plot was such a tantalizing idea.
