While this is going on in the background, she meets and falls for Stephen Gates, who just happens to live in the penthouse suite of her apartment block and unfortunately is suffering from a brain tumour. Although he loves her too and they begin a passionate affair, slowly everything unravels.
I struggled a bit with Jasmine's character she seemed quite independent and feisty, but then was easily manipulated by Stephen and the rest of his family - of whom there are a LOT and who are extremely wealthy. Some of the brothers consider Jasmine a gold digger and make no bones about their opinion - their callous assumptions, unfounded and downright hurtful, leaving Jasmine confused and uncertain. To add to the mix, it turns out Stephen has a twin, who Jasmine meets under tragic circumstances, little realising that they have already spoken, but when and how will shock her. No, I won't give the plot away - you have to read it.
he supporting cast were well written and some deserve their own stories - I'd be interested to see whether this happens. The story ends but doesn't conclude, there are a few threads still dangling, so I hope AC Jade ties them off in a future novel.
This is a story of love and loss and second chances, of the tenuous nature of life and how happiness so can so easily be snatched away. It encourages the reader to grab life with both hands and dance like nobody's watching!
Overall story was enjoyable, although I did find some of the language and phraseology a bit awkward. I discovered, however, that The Foreigner is the author's debut novel and that English is her second language, which clarified it to some extent and I am in awe of authors who take that leap of faith to write in a language other than their own.
I was gifted a copy of The Foreigner and this is my unbiased review.
There she she sees a man and the chemistry is instant although they are both wearing masks and she doesn't know who he is. Then while working she meets Steven Gates, a man with cancer whom she hits it off and soon the two begin a relationship.
But Steven has secrets and soon they are revealed to Jasmine and she feels her life slip from out from beneath her. Then when things are finally in a good place everything disappears in an instance and Jasmine is left picking up the pieces but this time with help from Steven's brother, Nigel.
Will Jasmine be able to figure out where her heart resides and be able to pick up the pieces and find the place where she belongs?
I enjoyed this story but at times I found myself a little lost, especially at the beginning with The Bookstore. I knew what kind of club it was but I was unsure of what Jasmine had really done while in there besides dance.
Jasmine was hard working yet I think her sheltered life led her to The Bookstore and to Steven Gates. Steven did truly care about Jasmine and I felt bad when his secrets were revealed as he was hoping to have them dealt with by then.
I was definitely not expecting what happened to Steven the way it happened. Definitely threw me for a loop and then to discover Nigel. I kind of liked the link between Nigel and Jasmine and how they were already linked in a certain way. I did feel super bad for Jasmine with what happened with all the stress she was going through.
I was honestly a little confused at the end and felt like the story was quite completed yet and I wish everything could have been summed up for me!
Jasmine Lao is 30 years old and has moved from the Philippines some years ago to better her life and career. But life has been all work and no play and boring so she wishes for something to chance.
Steven Gates is a business man and meets Jasmine in the doctor’s office where she works and he is a patient. It is an instant attraction the moment they meet, then they find out they live in the same building.
