I thought the story line was well thought out.
I fell in love with the characters. I loved the ending. It makes me wonder if there will be a sequel. If there is one I'll definitely buy it.
I would definitely recommend this book.
The book has touched me in many ways.
When Trinity finds her moment to escape, she takes it. She hops into the trunk of a stranger’s car. When she’s found out, the stranger does the unexpected. She takes Trinity to her home, feeds her clothes her, and puts her in touch with ex-Navy Seal, Gates Longman. Gates brings her to his home, counsels her, and helps her on a new path to a new life. Not long after she arrives, sparks start to fly. Knowing it’s not a good time, Trinity is hesitant.
Will time and a place of refuge be what Trinity needs to find herself? What will happen when the past keeps rearing its ugly head?
I really, really wanted this to be a five star book. I loved the synopsis. I loved the inspirational theme. I loved the fact that the characters had major personal obstacles to overcome. So, why am I giving this book 4 stars? I’ll talk about the good stuff first.
The characters were very well written. They stayed consistent and believable. That is a definite plus. The inspirational aspect of the story was well done. It got the point across without the reader feeling like they were being preached to. Kudos on that. The story did have a good flow. It went from point A to point B smoothly and logically.
For me, the number one con was the way the book was written in present tense. For me, the present tense threw me out of the story on more than one occasion. This may not be a problem for some people, but for me, it was difficult. The other con is that I feel like there are a few scenes, especially ones in the beginning chapters, where there was a lot more telling than showing. I would have liked to have seen more action in those beginning few pages. There was so much going on, it would have been awesome to see what Trinity does through her actions, not through her thoughts.
A 4 Star read for me.
Author: Jamie Lynn Boothe
Genre: Adult, Contemporary Romance, Inspirational
Thoughts: First off the inspirational isn't my cup of tea but that's not why I gave this a four star. Other than the details I had some idea of what was going to happen and predictable books annoy me. I did like the characters, and the writing was strong yet simple. I also loved the fact that this was a interracial romance, still not seeing many of those. And the fact that the author is male yet is able to understand what it is women love to read is always a bonus! Trinity is a strong character, which surprised me. Most women who've been in an abusive relationship for a period of time are usually somewhat broken that they are scared to tell people what is going on, and definitely aren't very trusting. Trinity didn't have any of those characteristics, she had no problem telling anyone and everyone her story, along with going with a stranger to another state. It just wasn't very realistic to me, I know it's fiction, and it's just my opinion.
