About the Author

E.L. Montes was born in Puerto Rico but raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She currently resides in Philadelphia with her husband, Alex, and their English bulldog. She has a Bachelor of Science degree in Legal Studies. She works full time as a paralegal for a mid-size law firm. Although she loves the legal field, writing was always her passion. Her first love for books began with the Goosebumps series as a child. After that she read anything and everything from poetry to short stories. She was passionate about the fictional world and intrigued by the way an author could pull you into a story with just simple words. As a hobby she started writing her own poetry, daily journal entries, and short stories. She actually dreamed of being a journalist and even went as far as researching colleges to earn a degree in Journalism. At the time, major newspaper companies and magazines were having budgets cut, and after careful thought she settled on another major. When she finished her degree, she felt like something was missing. She continued to write for several years, working on different story ideas, but never finished. Disastrous is her first novel.

The story started off strong, with strong characters and a great story line. However, what could have been great story quickly deteriorated into a bad episode of Jersey Shore. The maturity level of the main characters was appalling and destroyed any potential Disastrous had. Mia complained in the beginning about her failed relationships, and at that point in the book you think she had bad luck with men, but once her relationship with Marcus really gets underway, it becomes blatantly obvious why her previous boyfriends were jerks. Emotions from both Mia and Marcus were all over the place and totally overly dramatic. If Mia truly acted like a law student and Marcus truly acted like the #1 attorney in Boston, this story could have easily rivaled Naked and Bared To You. Unfortunately , it fell way flat.

I purchased this book as soon as it was released and was excited to read it. What a letdown. First, totally unrealistic start - I understand that fiction is just that, not real, but for me a story needs to be at least a little believable. The main character, Marcus, is about 29 and has never, ever dated. Really? Come on......And he meets Mia at a bar (she is very drunk) and immediately knows that she is the one that he wants to finally "date". He asks her to date him after telling her he has never dated. Just very odd. Marcus tells Mia a few days into the relationship "Thank you for coming and giving me a chance. You don't know how much it means to me that you were willing to do this." Do what!!!! Date a devastatingly handsome, rich, well known attorney that was warm and kind...... The book went way to fast - if the author would have spent some time building the relationship and or attraction between the two characters, I probably could have enjoyed the book more. The premise of the story is good, interesting, etc. but again, the way the characters get together is just so unbelievable. You can easily figure out in the very first part of the book what the big secret is. I am pretty sure the author did not intentionally put it out there - it was just very simple to figure it out based upon the writing. Would have been nice to build that up a little more too vs. letting it all out in the open right away. I felt this book was very rushed - if the author would have taken a little more time to develop the characters and the story, I think I could have really enjoyed it because the storyline had potential.

I have been eyeing this book for sometime now so when I saw it was on sale for .99 I scooped it up. I have mixed feelings about this one. Did I have my expectations too high? Maybe. Don't get me wrong, I liked it. I had to know what was going to happen next, but there just wasn't enough detail for me. I would have liked to seen more push from Mia. She caved too quickly on more than one occasion. There was just something missing. Not enough angst maybe? I didn't connect with the drama as deeply as I would have liked. I felt for the characters, just not as strong as I should have. I hate being on the fence about a book. I don't like not being able to pinpoint why I'm straddling the fence.

So, this review will leave you just as confused as I am...sorry. LOL I liked the story, just needed a little more oomph. I will have to give it a few days and re-read maybe then come back and let you know if anything changes!

Ok I am not sure how to write a review for this book. I have so many mixed emotions about this book. At first I was not falling for the instant chemistry between Marcus and Mia. I felt it more with Mia and Jeremy and that's probably because I love for best friends to hook up. It wasnt until half way through the book that I finally felt the connection between Mia and Marcus. I felt like their relationship was rushed and I couldnt grasp why she was with him with all the lies he told and secrets he kept. Marcus was a definite mystery. I knew something was up the moment he asked about her brother's name and the reaction his brother Jimmie had once we realized Mia worked for him. Normally when big misunderstandings happens in books I get upset and want them to immediately "make up" but not in this case. I was happy when Mia didnt back down and finally stood her ground. He needed to suffer a little longer. I honestly didnt want them to get back together until the outside in the rain scene.

The ending of the book and the Epilogue made up for the beginning of the book. I am anxious to see what Cautious has to offer and see what happens to Mia, Marcus and Uncle Louie. Mia most definitely needs to be Cautious when it comes to Marcus.

I liked ‘Disastrous’ even though the story has been told many times before. I think what saved the cliqued story was the main characters, I felt for them. There is an instant lust element that I, recently, have found in every book I have read lately, but there is also some actual relationship growth, while still hot.

There is a minor plot twist that happens that I hope the author explores more in the second book, with regard to the families of both characters. What I find refreshing is the little twist the author put in there, emphasizing the idea of fate or destiny. Love is the driving force of this book- from friendship love, physical love and emotional love, but more importantly there are questions of loyalty and morality throughout.

The ending, while not a complete cliffhanger, does set up the next story. I will be back because the characters get under your skin and you want the best for them; no matter the cost.
