I have to say I was surprise how "clean" this was for being a modern day "Phantom" story. Which isn't a bad thing but maybe I was expecting some graphic content lol.
I had a hard time with Christine being a believable modern day women though in this. The story line didn't have many surprises at all and was overall a pretty simple straight forward Phantom story.
Cute take on the Phantom and I did enjoy it. I just wished for a bit more.
It's different in a way I didn't expect, nor just a boring modern Happy
Ever After rehash but an honest look at two people and the reasons they are who they are.
If I'm honest, I really didn't expect to like this much. I am not really a fan of fairytale based books....they aren't my style. All I can say is I WAS SOOOOOOOOOOOOO WRONG !!! HOLY MOLY!!! I loved this book. I couldn't put it down and I ended up getting nothing done and reading it straight through. I could NOT get Erik out of my head. He's still there..... when I first finished reading it, I couldnt get into another book. it was all Erik, Erik, Erik !!
Erik, OMG ~~ the man had my heart from the first second I was introduced to him. He broke my heart, repaired it and then broke it again ~~ Good thing he knew how to repair it again eh?!! The man is sexy as all h*** ... He's talented, intelligent and oh so broken. My heart hammered in my chest so many times, because i felt him and his anguish and pain, not to mention his bits of happiness he could only get from his Christine.
This modern day twist on Phantom of the Opera, was just written so well, and the author did an amazing job of bringing the characters to life for me.
Christine, was not your everyday annoying female lead (sorry but i generally hate female leads). You really cant help but fall in love with her too. She is sweet, innocent, trusting and so grateful for everything she has been given. She really is an amazing character.
The side characters are well written and I really do hope to see more on the rest of Erik's band and their lives.
I highly recommend this book and this author
I wanted to give this book 5 stars, as it truly pulled me in, however it needs another round of copyediting, (the grammar issues are a bit distracting) so I have to drop it 4.5 stars.. Hopefully Kim will release an updated version with the needed corrections. If so, I'll happily bump my rating up to a well-deserved 5 star review..
If you're a fan of the classics, with a love for sweeping, intense & dramatic romances, snap this novel up today!
Kim Carmichael has created yet another stunning novel that you shouldn't miss!

The man in the shadows falls for the girl who wants to shine.
Romance at its finest you don't want to miss this!
