The character development overall was lacking. Blake Black was shallow, Evan was there and then he was not. Heath came across as wimpy and insecure... what about Heath's 'golf buddy' who bedded Jessica and gave her drugs? Then there were the two questionable investigators .... what ever happened to them? Teresa and Sledge just pop up out of know where. Both are jealous of Heath .... one wants him, the other wants his money. Had the story's bedroom scenes been alluded to more rather than waste the space vividly describing each act, there would have been ample space to develop the book's characters.
I was hoping to see how a broken young girl who turns into a broken woman over time, heals after dealing with tragedy. I wanted more internal emotion rather than the physical display of going from one man's bed to the next.
Alyssa suffered a tragedy when she was just 17. She hasn’t been able to fully move on from it and because of that, she is finding comfort in all the wrong things. The decisions that she makes shows you how deeply broken she is. However, she was still able to become a lawyer-the one thing she always wanted to do. She is successful but still unlucky in love. Heath also suffered tragedy at a young age but has done the best he can at moving on. He is also successful but very smart and good. Through the help of friends, the two meet and sparks fly. Heath and Alyssa are great together-the bond, the love they share is shown through their actions. Their relationship is very easygoing and I enjoyed that. There is a underlying connection that they share and it made their relationship that much better and stronger. Some of the drama in the story I felt showed how strong both Heath and Alyssa when going through obstacles and I liked that. The characters in the story were good and I enjoyed reading about them. I liked that Delisa showed how one person can help heal another through love.
Though there were good parts to the story, for me it moved a little too fast. I know that Heath and Alyssa were connected but I still felt that the progression of their relationship was still a bit much and unrealistic at times. I felt that because of the timeline, I was not able to fully connect with the story as I hoped. I felt that there could have been more with the progression of their relationship-more to explore and I would have liked that. However, if you have read this series then you will like this book.
Healed is book 5 in Delisa Lynn's 'Embracing' series and in my opinion the best one of the series and brings s the story of Alyssa and Heath. Of them all, this is the one book can certainly be read as a stand alone.
I was not a fan of Alyssa from the other books in this story, she was the "girl to hate", and while I don't condone her behaviour, this story goes a long way to explaining why she is the way she is and my heart broke for her on more than one occasion. So much angst.
Enter Heath, like a ghost from the past and he sets about healing her, and as always with this author's books, time seems to move a warp speed and the relationship with Heath progresses very quickly - but given everything Alyssa has gone through, I can't really blame her for grabbing on with both hands.
Once again though, there is spelling mistakes, bad grammar and disjointed dialogue. Of all the books in this series so far, this one has the most believable scenarios, so on that front, the author did a great job. Properly polished and this would be great.
I could go on and leave hints, but this story is just to amazing to do that! I have been in love with this series from the very beginning, and each book gets more and more intense. All of the characters have a piece of my heart.
This book blew me away. I recommend this book for everyone. If you haven't read this series, you need to! Delisa has once again outdone herself! Keep pushing on because I can't wait for more!!
