Taye is a strong independent young woman. She meets Eli at a night club and yes he's hot, sexy and totally edible so why wouldn't she contemplate an unforgetable one night stand, she isn't looking for more right? But what happens when feelings and emotions get involved?
Taye can't believe it when Eli wants to see her again. He makes her feel and want things she's never dreamed of before and she knows she is falling hard for him. Problem is he's never hid that he doesn't do relationships, he does sleep with women and he doesn't do commitments or being faithful and he won't be around for long because he goes where his job takes him.
So here comes my love hate relationship with the story. I loved Tayes independence, but yet when it came to Eli, she became one of those women that we all have known or been. The girl you want to tell to stop being his "go to" and "his doormat". But hey when your in love with someone you hang on, and that internal flame of hope just doesn't let you go. I didn't like Eli at times, and felt conflicted, an that Taye would be much better letting him go!!! I think in the process of reading this book i called him all the douchey names i could think off. And that is why i also loved this book so much. Chantal has done a perfect job of writing a love story that just feels so real to life for so many of us and those we know, so your emotions definitely get caught up. He isn't MR PERFECT, he isn't the typical man of anyones dreams. He is hot and delicious, but you want to to see her with someone who adores her. But love isn't always pretty roses and romance and men that are falling over their feet for you, it has many forms and i loved the fact that this book give us that messy love in all its unglorious form !!! Is Taye wasting her love and time on this guy? Well you have to read it, Well done Chantal Great Job!!!!
Told from first person point of view (Taye) Taye wants to be a romance author but our heroine is a bit of an introvert when it comes to men and relationships. A night out with friends finds Taye focusing on the sexy Eli, a man who is only in town for a short time, but a man who is everything that Taye has been looking (for). Hoping to check off her sexual bucket list of things to do, Taye opts for a one night stand that turns into something more. What ensues is the on again, off again relationship between two people on differing paths, and with different expectations in life.
THE LIST follows our heroine as she struggles to keep her feelings in check when it comes to the man that calls to her heart. Eli never promised forever, in fact, he never promised more than a one-night stand, but attraction is what it is, and our transient and world traveling hero continues to make an occasional appearance in our heroine’s life rendering Taye pining for a man who isn’t capable of anything more. The $ex scenes are intimate; the attraction is immediate but something felt off in the story line presentation-a story that was ‘told without an invitation to come inside’
The first person perspective faltered with THE LIST. The presentation felt more like a series of journal entries; a recounting of events such that the emotion was absent, and the reader is but a remote viewer of events. There are too many details missing; we know very little about the leading characters; the lack of information left me wanting….more.
I am a big fan of the author’s Wind Dragon MC series but THE LIST missed the mark. Chantal Fernando states that some of the events in the book are fictional although loosely based on a real story. I always have difficulty with books based on real-life events because the ‘background information’ and the colorful events are likely to be altered such that they are no longer recognizable and the real emotion is missing. I am hoping the real-life heroine did find her HEA with or without her Eli.
