I loved Sayer the hero. He was a possessive and jealous alpha who was crazy about Carlo, the heroine. They were all about each other from the time they met. I really liked how they met as children. He was homeless and in his mind she "saved" him. She felt differently about it.
I loved how they were faithful to each other during the 5 year separation that occurred when she was 20 years old. They did not even kiss OP.
It may bother some readers that they kissed when she was 10 years old and he was 13 years old due to the age difference. They did nothing else until she was 15 years old. It did not bother me.
Carlo was a virgin when they made love and it was not confirmed or denied if she was Sayer's first and so I am putting my blinders and saying that he was. (I love when a heroine and hero are each other's firsts and last. It is so rare in both romance books and reality and it is romantic to me.) The story was solely from Carlo's point of view and there were no smex scenes with OW. In fact there was no mention of OW other than Carlo accusing Sayer of taking a girl home when he was 18 years old before they got together. His response was that he didn't, that he did not want anyone but her.
I would have given the story a 5 star rating as opposed to a 4 star one except for a few things. For one I want a lot of chemistry between the hero and the heroine as well as a decent amount of hot sexy times and IMO this story was lacking on both fronts. While not a clean romance the smex scenes were medicore. The other thing was the ending. While I understood it was going to be a cliffhanger I felt it could have been done much better. I will be reading the next book in the series.
I was sucked in this book and will read the second one. Two things though:
One, the ending was medium at best, which is a shame.
And two-Rachel,girl, you better not disappoint with the sequel. No pressure though....
Had I known, I would have waited to buy this one.
Decent book. Super slow though. Didn't pick up til about 60 percent so that should have been my first clue. Would have rated higher if we got the ending but I just spent 5 bucks for half a book. So frustrating, but can't say you weren't warned...
That being said I think the writing is well done , well developed characters , and the story line different. I would of rated high than the 3* if this was a complete book. The second half is when the book picks up.
The one bright spot in her life was the friendship Caro shared with Frankie, and her infatuation with the guy that she was madly and deeply in love with. Sayer had been groomed to lead a life in the mafia. Something that threatens to pull Caro further into danger and heartache. A catalyst to a life that Caroline knows will only bring more danger to her doorsteps.
One moment of clarity would lead Caroline to flee from the life she has always known. Leaving Sayer without so much as a ‘confession’ to her whereabouts. Surrounding those that knew her with questions as to her disappearance. Creating a new life, a new identity, and the every constant fear that one day her whereabouts would be uncovered. It was a risk that Caroline knew she must take to guard a secret that was near and dear to her heart.
Living life in fear is never easy, but Caroline has made sure to keep her eyes peeled for signs that someone from her past has finally found her. Constant ‘looking over your shoulder’ is nothing new and a staple in her home. Then a couple of mysterious occurrences make Caroline wonder if that time of discovery is close at hand. What unfolds is nothing that Caroline could have predicted. Leading her down a path that is quickly unraveling……
What an interesting and layered story that Rachel Higgins has graced upon my reader!! A complex story about life within the confines of a mafia with quite the interesting twist. Readers will be taken on a journey that transpires over years. From where it all began….to what leads us to the present. A life full of mystery, twists, intrigue and fear. Each moment is captured through Caroline’s eyes. Bringing the past to life with each moment she relives from her past.
The secondary characters added a HUGE amount to the plot!! Woven so tightly into the fabric of this tale that you cannot imagine the story without them! Francesca was the type of friend everyone wishes they found in life. I can’t tell you a lot about their friendship…..but you will LOVE how they supported one another through the years!! Then there is Sayer….what an interesting and compelling love interest!! The strength he exudes is such a compliment to Caroline’s character. Their past is written with so much detail that it’s hard to imagine one without the other.
Now…I must confess that I had a hard time getting into this story at first. There were so many details from the past, and your mind will dart around wondering how all of the details will come into play. Don’t give up on the story…..hang in there because it will all level out. Captivating you to the point that you will not be able to stop yourself from reading Constant from cover to cover. After I pushed through the ‘hump’….I devoured the entire book in one sitting. Two AM came in the blink of an eye, and hot coffee fueled me when my alarm went off a couple of hours later. Seriously….I am dying to know what happens next for these tattered and engaging characters!!
