As uncertain as I was in the beginning , I persevered and made it to the finish line, and what a finish it was. Though I did some skimming, mostly on things that were written at length I thought was unnecessary. Such Adelia's parents courtship, equestrian-equine husbandry, steeplechasing, etc. It was so drawn out it got a little too tedious to read. To me, they're simply fillers and in my opinion, a waste of the writer's time and effort. I admit it is a well balanced combination of a lot of things I like in a book and has all the elements of what makes a story shine, distinct.
Devastated by the loss of her beloved parents, Adelia tried to put her life back together by pursuing her dream to become a number one equestrian and compete in the Olympics. At a party given for the winners, Adelia met the conniving, scheming, devious, cunning woman that ever existed on planet earth, Karolin, who then introduced Adelia to her twin brother, Miles. It didn't take long before this two dated seriously, sex hot and heavy, oodles of steamy sultry sex scenes, married and got pregnant.
I really like that there's a fusion of scheming, black mailing, bitterness, dark secrets that can ultimately destroy the love and fragile bond of Miles and Adelia, trust the deceitful and cunning Karolin to make sure of that. How I love calling her all kinds of names, trust me it's befitting. But thanks to women like Karolin, the devil incarnate, it makes up for an entertaining interesting read.Read more ›
Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
So, this interested me but I hadn't realised its not a standalone – I’m still unsure of whether its a duo or trilogy, Bel says on Amazon that the sequel The One and More will be out later this year, and my assumption is that this means a duo. I do wish authors would tell readers what to expect and when – I hate the trend for these serialised romances that have cliffhangers ( though thankfully this one stops at a natural break) and novels broken up into parts, released at times and prices unknown...I think they're doing readers a disservice.
Anyway – got that whine off my chest so back to the book! Its well written and complex, full of separate incidents that you just know are going to collide somewhere along the line. The characters are great too – very well put together to provide for the drama that’s inevitably going to come out.
Miles is an arrogant B, and yet...I liked him. His plans with the awful sister Karolin were cruel, but made out of love for her. Then he fell in love with Adelia and all plans were off..but the bitch wasn't giving in that easily. I felt once he got to know Adelia he found a softer side to himself, he didn't ever expect to fall in love and be loved, and it shocked him. Although he's treated people shallowly and without consideration, he's also got a different side as evidenced in the beginning with Helene where he doesn't want to use the crop, and how he helps her after their interlude. OK, maybe I’m just making excuses :) but I love Miles, and can't help feeling ( hoping?) there's more behind his actions than we know. Karolin, twin sister and two faced bitch extrodinaare is a perfect foil to him, she's a terrific actress playing a part to get what she wants..Read more ›
Based on the blurb, which lays out the entire plot, this book had potential to be a good read, but it fell short of it’s mark. The writing was choppy and many times I felt as if I was missing paragraphs or pages because of it jumped around. In many ways I felt like I was given an outline of the story, not a manuscript about to be published. And while I am forgiving of minor inconsistencies, there was one major one in the beginning of the book that I couldn’t excuse and felt should have been caught and corrected.
Spoiler: At the beginning of Chapter 5 it states that it took Adelia two weeks to get back to training her horses, something that concerned her because it could mean that the horses would have to be re trained, but when she meets Miles for the first time she tells him that she hasn’t really mourned her parents because she had to get back to training immediately. I’m the first that will say that there is no right or wrong way to grieve or what the length of time should be because it is a very personal process, but this just didn’t mesh well to me.
I had a difficult time getting into the story and kept having to force myself to continue reading it. I felt no connection in any way to Adelia, Miles or Karolin, None of them elicited an emotional response from me. Their interactions were, like much of the writing was, choppy. Adelia had no personality of her own to make me care about her. She did whatever Miles wanted, even if her gut told her something wasn’t right, because he paid attention to her and gave her orgasms. Miles, while dominate in a very pushy, manipulative way, I didn’t find all that charming or sexy.Read more ›
