Bethany and Adam have the perfect amount of hot/cold, love/hate, and push/pull. I honestly can't say enough great things about this book.
I am excited to read more from this author! This book was so well written with such in depth descriptions as well as characters. Please don't let this book get by you. It is definitely a 5 star read!
Bethany has spent her life doing what other people expect. She is even fake girlfriend to a man she's hopelessly in love with, dreaming that he will eventually choose her over his true nature. A trip to Turkey begins to slowly change her way of thinking. As she falls in love with the beautiful and exotic sights, sounds, and foods, Bethany also becomes attached to the other students in her group. These people see her for who she really is, and they like that person. Adam is the exception, as he seems to dislike and lust after her at the same time. And what she feels for Adam is definitely not like anything she's ever felt for Greg.
I loved this story. The descriptions of the many places Bethany visited made me feel like I was with her. I could almost taste the food and hear the music. I felt the heartache that Bethany felt as she was torn between what she wanted and what she felt she needed to do. I adored Adam and found the eventual romance to be completely sigh-worthy. And, though this is told completely from Bethany's point of view, I felt Adam's understandable frustration with her unwillingness to follow rules. I was more worried about Bethany's safety than she was herself.
In so many ways, this is like a fairy tale. The clumsy and insecure heroine (or beautiful princess, if Bethany were telling the story) fights to find her way to her own dreams. Everyone she meets falls under her spell, and she even finds true love along the way. I most definitely recommend this story.
When Bethany finds a book on the Sultan's Harem she decides that will give her the courage to finally be free and follow her own path. When Bethany meets Adam Drake, the handsome teaching assistant to Professor Aybar, he challenges her in the most annoying ways yet she can't help but be attracted to the man.
As Bethany begins something with Adam, Greg needs Bethany to do a big favor for him. Will Bethany allow Greg to control her life or will she for once choose her own path and destiny?
This was such a good book about love and following your own path and doing what makes you happy.
I felt so bad for Bethany as we learn about her as her life had been controlled by her parents and Greg for so long and she had no opportunities of her own. I loved that she almost snuck off to Turkey as her parents would not have allowed her to go without Greg. She was such an amazing photographer but she was also a little careless with not knowing what dangers were lurking around her in a foreign country.
Adam was interesting in that he was comparing Bethany so his ex which I understood yet he obviously cared for Bethany but was afraid of getting hurt again. Adam was also aware of how much of a disaster magnet Bethany was so he always seemed to be there at some point to help her out.
I loved the caring nature of Bethany and that was evident when she met the old man who collapsed and I loved how that turned out.
I was definitely afraid when I knew what Greg had planned but I crossed my fingers that Adam and Bethany would be able to figure things out. I was super mad though at Greg for being so selfish and not realizing what everything was doing to Bethany!
This was a great book and I look forward to more from this author!
