I really wanted to love this book. I wanted it to be one that I could rave about to you and beg you to read. The blurb sounded so incredible, it had my attention and made me want to read it.
As I cleared my scheduled and started reading the story, I was perplexed. At times, the story was excellent. It held my attention, grasped its claws into me, and made me keep reading. At other times, it felt forced reading. It left my attention wondering, its claws were slipping, and left me confused. I felt like I went back and forth during the entire story.
Having a read like this is incredibly frustrating. It’s not frustrating because the author did a bad job writing the story, or frustrating because the story was lacking, it’s frustrating because it’s hard to fully explain in writing why I was struggling so much, so bare with me as I try to explain.
As I sit here and write this review and think in my head, I think there are two biggest reasons that the story wasn’t “great” all the way through; over writing and lack of description or explanation. I know, these two seem to make no sense together, right? Let me explain. I think, at times, the author went in a little deep with her writing, her explanations, and back story. I think some of it wasn’t necessary. However, the way that this story is written, you get “back stories” or history of the main character and her childhood sweetheart. However, you don’t get a warning when it is the flashback, you just kind of have to know. Certain times, it’s glaringly obvious but other times it’s not so obvious and required me to go back and re-read a little bit to realize I was reading a flashback. I think maybe had these been labeled a little bit better, it might have helped my mind prepare a little bit and not have so much confusion.
So, overall, it wasn’t a bad read. The main female character has some serious inner turmoil and is forced to make a pretty intense decision. She had, what I would consider, an unhealthy first love, and her heart doesn’t want to let go. It’s intense and heart breaking. I can recommend to read the story, just prepare yourself for flashbacks and know if it doesn’t seem like current times, it’s probably a flash back. Maybe the author will choose to edit her story a bit to make it more clear. If not, it’s still a good story.
* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and the comments here are my honest opinion. *
On a whole this is a compelling read, far from your typical romance as it’s more about what’s in the heart as opposed to what’s between the sheets. There’s a lot of melodrama, a bit of roughness to the overall narrative, and a few soap opera-ish moments that were viewed through a teenaged girl’s lens. The emotions that Lottie conveyed regarding her first love Joe were effusive and were reminiscent of my own feelings at that age. Looking through her diary and looking back at the past though made Lottie more relatable and sympathetic. She once had stars in her eyes but time and reality has made her more pragmatic and I admired the conclusion she reached and how she got there. As to the two men in this story, they are merely the backdrop as we don’t get to know them too deeply. They’re both a bit unlikable at times and I can’t help but think there was someone even better out there for her. Their personalities and their deeds though are part of Lottie’s story and are just pieces to the woman she’s become. From the first page to the last readers will find this to be an unforgettable read full of intense emotions and surprising twists and turns as it ultimately takes us on an empowering journey to HEA.
This book entails every emotion that can so richly be felt as if squeezing a sponge and everything comes pouring out. I feel Lotties pain, anguish, heartbreak and sadness just to name a few . The emotions that she undergoes are palpable to any reader.
While I won't spoil the ending, I will say you will be entranced to read this in one sitting.
The author Samie Sands is an undiscovered gem in writing any genre . She has the ability to captivate and make you enjoy reading again.
I not only recommend Ms. Sands latest book I insist that you read it. I for one will follow her in whatever she writes.
And it goes without saying this rates 5 stars. I don't have enough superlatives to describe it. Fantastic , sensational, just wow!
Read and enjoy.
