There are a few interesting subplots in Bite and Switch, but the true heart of the story is Serena and Kyle’s relationship. Neither of them had much experience with dating, so they’re navigating their way through, learning and adapting as they go. It was fun to watch them blossom as a couple, overcoming obstacles, and eventually getting their happily-ever-after.
Bite and Switch does not end on a cliffhanger. All of the big questions are answered, but there is definitely more to come for Serena and Colt. I look forward to learning more of their story in book two!
Serena suffers from PTSD (Post-traumatic stress disorder) due to an incident that happened to her as a child and Kyle suffers from DID (Dissociative identity disorder) where he has two distinct personalities. One is caring and successful though he is not perfect. He's possessive and is easily threatened. His other personality is Hector who is aggressive and mostly a depraved individual and is involved with a man who will do anything to keep Hector the one in control. Despite Serena and Kyle's problems, the two found each other in a most unusual way and their rollercoaster relationship takes the reader on a sometimes frightening ride as they try to find their happily ever after or at least a happy for now.
Pros and Cons to the story...
The characters are well developed though there are points in the relationship that I found very disturbing. Relationships are complicated enough without throwing two people with mental disorders together. I had some issues with why the therapist would encourage these two to continue a relationship when they still needed therapy and perhaps would need it for a very long time. The ending seemed too convenient, but then the author is going to continue with Serena and Kyle's story so perhaps we will see how their relationship will flourish or not. In my opinion, it cannot be an easy road.
I like how the author explains each of the disorders and how each of the characters must cope with their disorder from understanding what triggers them to facing the reasons so that they can move on and hopefully have a full and productive life. I'm a sucker for happy endings even when it seems impossible. I like to think there is someone for everyone and that the couple brings out the best in each other. The author does this splendidly despite the major issues the characters face on a daily basis.
Bite & Switch isn't just another romance about falling in love. It is about the "Hidden Monster" within and beyond the characters and the question, When does of self-preservation trump love? Serena's PTSD issues, bombs, cruel night club owner, and Colt, a man with two distinct personalities takes us on a rollercoaster full of suspense, romance, and mystery.
Fabulously written, exciting and suspenseful, this is a great story and set of characters for any romance fan.
Written with such intensity and clarity that you might just find yourself talking to the characters.
I am anticipating reading book 2 and I can't wait to see how Jasmine continues the plot.
What starts off with a bang literally doesn’t let up page after page with the protagonist Serena running into Kyle, who rapidly becomes a love interest. The opening scene at a campus begins with a blast that brings the couple together with him rescuing her psychologically. She with a PTSD past from a childhood growing up in Baghdad (her father was a contracted security consultant for the military there) and the loud sound on campus set her nerves on edge. It is then she runs into Kyle who holds and soothes her and we the reader like the connection. Serena, cute with long brown hair, large green eyes, and a curvy body connects with long slender built Kyle with perfectly proportioned facial features and the story rapidly moves along with her falling for him. But he is not without his own issues, including a mother who died of liver cancer. No, he’s a complicated love interest and the aspect to this character the author weaves into the plot richens the read, he has two personalities, one sexually aggressive and the other psychically comforting. As with most relationships and a familiar theme to falling in love with a questionable partner, Serena is hoping to meld the two into her perfect partner. Does she succeed and the chemistry between the couple was what drove me to stay with the storyline, wanting to know how it all turns out. No spoilers here but suffice it to say I enjoyed the read.
