All I can say is, thank god there's a third book coming, and Rebecca Donovan, you are a true artist with words.
I have to say one of the things I like the best, is how messed up Emma is! I found myself getting so frustrated with some of the choices that she made, but they all make sense, considering how her life has been. So often in stories, characters will live though horrendous situations only to come out perfect and well adjusted at the end. Emma's dysfunction is part of what makes her so believable and likeable to me. I also loved Even is this story. His responses and reactions were also very believable. He got made and frustrated at all the right times.
I disagree with others, who have said it was another cliff hanger ending. It left me wanting more, and anxious to see where the next book will take everyone, but we were not left hanging like the first one, so don't worry. You may not like how things are left at the end, but it is wrapped up
I think these books would make a great TV series. As I was reading, I could almost see where each episode would end, leaving you on the edge of your seat until the next week, and the season finales would leave everyone dying until the next season!
I can't wait for the next book!
That being said... I was hugely disappointed with BB. I read every teaser Donovan gave and anticipated where the story would go. Little did I know, it was going nowhere close to what I had envisioned. I was disappointed, initially, with the fact that the story picks up about 6 months after the attack. I wanted to badly to go through the healing with her. I wanted to see how relationships would change. I wanted to know the reactions people had when they found out. I wanted to sit next to her in the courtroom. We got absolutely nothing but a vague account from Evan near the end of the story.
My major gripe with this book, however, was the lack of any type of plot development. There were so many story lines that seemed so suspenseful, but went absolutely nowhere. For example, I thought Analise would have a pivotal role in this book. So much led up to there being more going on between her and Evan, but that story line ended with her giving up and telling Emma not to break his heart?? And what about Drew?Read more ›
