The description of this book had me excited. The cover is beautiful and represents a couple in the city. Betrayed is a promising start to an interesting interracial serial. It marries sexual teasing and drama to humor effortlessly. As it is part of a series, it gives you enough grit to sink your teeth into while keeping you slightly curious if your lingering questions will be answered in the next installment.
Secondary characters in this book all seem to be just as important as MCs Reno & Lisette. I chuckled at Daniela's reaction when she discovered Reno was her long lost brother:
"Please don't cry. I didn't mean for you to find out this way." DJ said as he pressed a kiss on her temple.
"That's not the reason, stupid. I just can't believe I now have to suffer two brothers and not just one." She smiled through her tears.
Reno and Lisette's first love making scene left little to be desired or imagined. The description did not have to be erotic or crude in details but what was provided was a letdown. I felt the teasing Lisette did throughout the course of the book was more captivating than losing her virginity as indicated by the quote below.
"Take me to bed."
"Not yet, I need to control my hunger for you. I don't want to hurt you."
"But it doesn't mean I can't make it easier on you."
A warm brandy feeling filled his belly when she nipped at his jaw. "Make me yours."
"You have always been mine."
For me, it felt as if I had missed a page or a scene after reading the above quote but nope- that was it.
I was surprised at the overwhelming errors throughout this book which begins in the prologue. These errors were in the form of spelling, punctuation, & word choice. Since I have been gifted with a free copy of Betrayed for an honest review I'm hoping my copy is an unedited version as I've never encountered this many errors in the numerous books I read. Also, at times I felt the transitions from characters and/or situations did not flow well forcing me to reread passages.
Despite the errors and occasional lack of coherent flow, I was able to complete this read and I'm looking forward to reading book 2 (On Call) in the series to see if Reno's sister Rhyne is located. Betrayed has the potential to be a good if not a great serial if editing and transitions are addressed. Overall, an OK read for a lazy day.
Although I enjoyed the characters and parts of the story made me chuckle, I cannot rate this read any higher than 2 stars for the overwhelming editing errors.
Lisette meets Reno at a party, when he intervenes after her date tries to manhandle her. They share an instant attraction but when Reno realizes she is his father’s goddaughter, he decides to stay away from her until his dealings with his father are finished. Lisette has other things in mind and the two start dating while Reno tries to figure out what to do about his father.
Betrayed is a well-written story of young love and fragile trust. Having had men after her for her father’s money her whole life, Lisette feels she has finally found a man who wants her for her and not the fortune she can provide. Reno falls hard and fast and must make decisions about his father and his missing sister, whom he is still searching for, which may hurt Lisette and the relationship they are trying to build. Through all their hurdles their love stays strong, though will it be enough to get past their betrayal?
