I have a hard time abandoning books once I start them, so once I got through half of this book with nothing happening I just started to skim. The book is all agonizing inner monologue with hardly anything of note happening. The entire romance is a cliche. Evan is the most handsome man in the world and he's also a billionaire and he falls in love with Kate with one look. Please. Then we have the entire back story about her father being arrested and her mother being murdered. She changes her name and relocates to escape her past and her mother's murderer. She always fears that he's coming for her, yet she never told the police about him. Yes, she knows who murdered her mother and yes, she knows he's coming after her and spends years hiding from him, but she never tells the police so he can be arrested and she can stop worrying about him finding her?? Makes no sense! It was so stupid, a total waste of time. I wish I would have abandoned this one.
I loved this story it was great. It definitely had a great plot. I felt so bad home alone Kate had been for so long unable to let anyone in and scared he would find her. I loved how she didn't even realize men found her attractive. She was a very strong woman but she had to be. I don’t know how she did it cut off from everything but work and her classes. I was happy how Sebastian stepped up when he found out about her apartment. I was happy when she decided to take up her offer. I loved how Evan treated Kate and made her feel welcome. I loved the flow of this story and that Kate had people who cared about her and didn't turn on her when it came out who she was. I loved how Bridget defended her when Greg had Kate and how she worried about Kate. It was just an awesome book. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this story and I highly recommend.
The affection between Kate and Evan is quick building but slow to fruition. What I mean is they both characters are instantly attracted to each other but the author doesn't wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am them in the first chapter. She draws it out, lets it slow-burn for a bit, then brings them to same plane. There isn't a lot of character development for either Kate or Evan or world building but what was provided was enough to paint the picture. I was engaged in the story and had a hard time putting the book down.
Told from a first person, present tense viewpoint, I wasn't sure I was going to like the book. If you've read any of my other reviews you know that first person anything is not my favorite. The writing in first person, present tense books doesn't flow as well to me. The dialogue is awkward and I don't like it, as a general rule. I, however, was pleasantly surprised at how much I really did enjoy Elusive despite the viewpoint.
Ali Dean is a new author to me and will certainly keep her on my list of authors to read.
