Did the characters make foolish choices or moves at times? Of course, so do real like people.
Did Chanel and Rhys cause more drama than necessary? He'll yeah!
That's life. Most people have been torn apart by doing the right vs wrong thing, even when things might seem unsettling. Chanel wanted to do the right thing by Zach vshe was blinded by loyalty - although tainted. I felt her emotional journey.
We live, make mistakes and hopefully find happiness...eventually. Rhys & Chanel's love came through many struggles.
But, I'm glad they found their happily ever after. A must read for anyone that loves a true to life story!
Rhys was a man given the world through his family name but wanted to be a man on his own merit. He had a love that exploded with devastation and betrayal from his woman and later his family. It seemed as if he was barely holding on. His hope came from Chanel.
These two had an up and down, hit or miss, run to and from relationship. It was so emotionally raw and at times draining.
They finally decided to say the hell with it all and moved towards healing and finally each other.
I enjoyed the intense journey I was taken on with this story. They persevered through lies, deception, infidelity, bigotry, loss, and found their way to love.
I definitely share the frustrations that other reviewers had experienced when it came to Chanel. On one hand, she seriously tried my patience to the point of where I was close to getting sick of her. Although it might not have been intentional, she played with the hero Rhys’s emotions too much. I’m not sure any man in real life would have put up with her for long. But on the other hand, I tried to put myself in her shoes. Without giving the plot away, I don’t know how I would deal with the pain and devastation that Chanel did. If you are loyal, passionate, and love fiercely and deeply - you might react the same way and do the same things Chanel did. Speaking for myself, I hope to never find out.
I loved Rhys. I loved him for his strength, patience and integrity. Yes he had his flaws and he wasn’t a saint, but he is a truly genuine person. He’s honest. He knows what he wants and feels. He was patient and fought for the woman he grew to love. How can you not like and respect a man like that?
Besides the obvious unlikable characters who you can easily identify when you read the book, the character I never liked and found myself liking less was Chanel’s mother. I just didn’t understand her at all. I think she should have been honest and told her things directly. She intimated things but she never flat out said what she knew and all she knew. Granted it was possible Chanel would have turned a deaf ear and a blind eye regardless, but at least she would have gotten it all out and she might have saved her daughter a lot of heartache and wasted time. (But at least I figured out which parent Chanel inherited her game-playing from… :P)
All in all the novel was beautifully written. It flowed well, and was evenly paced. The characters were well-developed. There were a few love scenes - but they were not explicit. They were romantic and sensual.
I thought “Fire in the Water” was a good romantic read. I look forward to reading more of Janice Ross’s work in the future. :)
