The story was interesting and for the most part very enjoyable. The author created two characters who managed to get under my skin in a short amount of time. I wanted the two of them to find their way to each other, because you could tell immediately they belonged together. Even the suspense part of the storyline was intriguing and kept you guessing until close to the end.
There were two things that kept this from being a four star rating: the quirkiness of the way the story was written and the abrupt ending.
By quirkiness, I'm talking about the scene changes sometimes being a bit abrupt, or items thrown out in conversation that seemed very vital to the story but then were never mentioned again. How we never really got a history of just what Hart had been up to prior to finding himself in need of a wife and why he had so many enemies. Why there was such disdain between his relations (and Leandra's for that matter). Those little tidbits could have taken a good story and make it great, in my opinion. And as far as the ending, it was just abrupt. It was like eavesdropping at an open door and then having it shut in your face just when things started to get good. Sure we got what we wanted, sort of, in the end but I could have been finished off a bitter neater.
They had been dealing with the loss of their baby and he says he loves her...THE END. Why could they not have found Gabe alive and she end up pregnant again. Her sister was told of his death, they dealt with their grief, and then the I love you scene...in 2 pages!!!! RIDICULOUS!!! A story needs a proper ending.
This book had the potential to be a 5 star book. I don't understand what the other reviewers found to be so appealing about this book currently to give it a 4 or 5 star.
This book didn't have your typical heroine. Even the hero was a bit hard to understand sometimes but was more of your regular hero....Tall, dark, handsome(although not so gorgeous that all woman want him) Which is good...not every guy needs to be that, sometimes they just need to have that aurora about them or that certain something that attracts women. Well this I liked very much. I think a majority of books have a gorgeous hero and heroine. So as soon as they see each other it is instant attraction. If either the hero or the heroine is not so beautiful then they generally have to look past the looks to get to the real person. Look past all their flaws and see things others don't. Usually when this happens it makes for a very endearing story because it allows more room for the hero and heroine to grow. The author just failed miserably in this case.
Oh and it did have some humor in it which was good. My likes basically end about there....where the story has tons of potential and didn't live up to it. The characters and circumstances were set up but the author failed.
I liked that Merri was able to stand up to Hart but other than that the best I could have given this book 3 stars before the last chapters. Even then it was a stretch....
First off I was kind of put off with Hart's obsession with the dark and evil side of things. A couple chapters in the book I realized that I reading words like hell and such over and over. Worse he names all his animals names like Satan and Lucifer. Dresses himself in full black. Don't get me wrong I don't mind a book where the hero may be a bit dark but this went overboard and felt like Satan worship which I just can't abide. That is just my personal opinion.
Second, Merri and Hart claim to love each other when they barely spend time in each others company. It made no sense to me. They talk about being head over heels (not exact words but you get the picture) in love with each other and they barely talk! Literally, they get married and he leaves the next morning. They spend more time apart than together and when they are together they probably don't talk for more than 30 minutes(I'm just guessing here). I just don't get where they actually spent time together. Even if they author didn't write dialogue she could have at least said they spent the week getting to know each other or they went this place and that place together. This would at least let us know they spent time together. So I didn't believe in their love. It was really disappointing because I would have loved to see them fall in love. So much potential gone to waste..
Please don't look if you really don't want to know. I have to mention this because this is one of the reasons why the book has a low rating for me.
Gabe! How could the author kill him? I don't understand why it just left me feeling so bad, but it did. After everything Hart went through after finding out the secret. He died! So ridiculous in my opinion!
What is worse I felt the whole mystery of who was trying to kill Hart obvious well before Hart disappeared. You have Adam, Levi, Gabe, Hart and Merri on in on information and NO ONE COULD PUT TWO AND TWO TOGETHER? Especially Merri and Hart after they found the letter from his mother. Come on!! Then Hart giving things over so easy because of Gabe?! Hello I think that was so dumb especially since he would have no weight once he gave them the one thing that was keeping him alive! I honestly felt the whole secret/mystery was not believable at all.
At the moment I am trying to figure out what I just read, but I felt like it wasn't much. I felt the author did nothing with this story. The end was just horrible. It actually finished at 88% and was abrupt.
