So I consider it a personal victory when I find an author I enjoy so much I buy all the rest of their books. This is one of them. This was a good, solid read.
Now don't get me wrong. This isn't a five star book. But it was good. Here are some of the things I disliked about it:
1st person - I despise this. Seriously. There are some books and stories where 1st person is called for. But usually it isn't, and every erotica/romance author out there seems to think 1st person is the way to go after a certain un-named series that really took off. Unfortunately it ends up with me bonding with the narrating character and no one else because I never see how they view things, or if the viewpoint is switched as it is here, it suffers from transition issues. But I knew going into it that it was in 1st person so I can't harp on this too much. Well, as you can see I can - but I can't berate the author on it. The author did a good job on the 1st person - as good a job as you can.
Predictable and dull areas - there were some. There weren't many, but I did find myself skimming a few times. Particularly near the end. This is what dropped the review from a five star to a four star. To get a five star I should be grabbing for every word, every line, ever minute interaction. I should be waiting in breathless anticipation for what happens next. I wasn't.
Unrealistic interactions - there were some interactions between the characters that were unrealistic enough to make me roll my eyes. Don't get me wrong, I love fantasy and imagination in my reading - but there is a fine line between fiction and unbelievability. This line was crossed a few times. Especially at the end, where the wrap-up was done quickly and clumsily - like she was going for a certain word count for the novel (which was a good length by the way!) and realized she met her word count and went "Welp! All done! Everyone lives happily ever after! Next novel!"
But it was a good book. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was sappy, sweet, and had surprises in it.
I was actually left surprised at the author's good uses of plot twists. Usually plot twists in a romance novel are predictable. They may be pleasant and stimulating, but they are predictable. I legitimately did not know where the author was going with some of these twists. I enjoyed that, it was very refreshing.
Transitions, viewpoints, descriptions all done very well. Rarely was I jarred me out of the story. Especially with a 1st person viewpoint, which I have already established I hate, this is rare. The few times I was jarred out of the story was due to character interactions being so unrealistic I eyerolled. Usually viewpoint transitions or overly dramatic descriptions will hang me up and pull me out of the story, but they were very well done here.
Character progression! I always get excited when I find good character progression in a romance, because you don't get it too often. But it is here! On both the male and female leads, there is a healthy amount of character progression - it is nice to see them both grow as individuals.
All in all, this was a very enjoyable read. So much so I bought out the author, and look forward to reading her other books. Highly recommended.
This is an absolutely enjoyable romance story with elements of surprise, mystery and suspense that add interest to the plot line. I am therefore grateful and honored to have received an ARC and eager to post this review.
Ms. Chase builds interest and intrigue from the very start of the Prologue. We have an idea from the ad copy preceding the book, that this story is going to include a self-involved, man-whoring, monied CEO. Our heroine begins this story as a grief-laden soul trying to reestablish herself in a life of her own making.
Both characters move trough this story, move through and beyond the heavyweight of guilt, grief and longing to what end?
This story is so well-written in that each mystery of connection, guilt, grief and forbidden longing unfurls itself carefully while building suspense for the eventual outcome. Once you begin reading, the author has you hooked until the end.
The language of the story is excellent and flowing. The erotic scenes are tasteful and exciting. In this regard, the author truly has the reader longing for and anticipating when Cole and Emily are finally going to make their initial physical connection...share their first caress...share their first soul-satisfying kiss. Every encounter from there is especially enjoyable to read. I suppose it is our "Guilty" pleasure as readers. I cannot recommend this story more to claim it as such.
I happily volunteered to read an ARC. I felt privileged and honored to be one of the first to read this exciting story. My thoughts are my own. I loved the story so well, I purchased a final copy for my personal library. I promise you will absolutely enjoy this read and like me, look forward to more from Ms. Chase.
The connection between Cole and Emily is electric and, although you could tell they had some kind of encounter in the past, I didn't expect it to be what was revealed...
I really enjoyed this story and the characters. I received an ARC of this book, but enjoyed it so much, I had to buy a copy.
Ok so I don't do spoilers. So I won't give anything away, firstly because this is a must read book!!! Secondly because I'm mean like that!! Lol
Ok really- Guilty is utterly brilliant!!
This story is masterfully crafted, its heart-wrenching beautiful. It will make you shed a tear, piss you off, laugh a bit and want to take a very cold shower!!!
