From the Inside Flap
"I read it from beginning to end without stopping. Ieven carried on while cooking!" Amazon reviewer
Get this book. It was one of those books I couldn't put down until I finished. I have never read this author before but will be looking for more by her. It captured me from the first page and I am a rough critic.
When Arena is just eight months pregnant with her first child, Warren, her husband Tom starts hitting her and shoving her into things. Tom is extremely wealthy, overly arrogant, and has this need to put on a show around other people that he is the most amazing and wonderful husband. When people are around, Tom makes a big production out of presenting Arena with lavish gifts and doing sweet things for her. Unfortunately, he isn’t actually like that. After Arena later becomes pregnant and has her second child, Sasha, she decides that she is going to leave Tom and take their kids with her. Arena opens a secret storage unit and starts filling it with expensive items that she purchased with Toms credit cards, so that she can later sell them for money. Eventually, Arena gets her kids away from Tom and moves into an apartment where she soon meets a man named Bear. From here the story takes off and gets very exciting. Arena is deciding if she can trust Bear, and Tom starts causing SERIOUS issues.
I read this book in half a day (don’t tell my boss ;) ), and I don’t think I could have put it down if I tried. I have only read one other story that had domestic abuse going on in it, and it has never really been a story that I go to for a read. I mean really…it’s DEPRESSING. So when I started reading this I thought to myself: Self, just f*****g read it. So I read it, and I was actually very surprised with the direction the story went. Arena ACTUALLY removed herself and her kids from the abusive relationship, but then so many different strange and chaotic things start happening. I cannot tell you how many times I said WTF to myself as I read this book, which I think is always good if you are a reader. Whether you are saying it for good or bad reasons, the fact that the author has actually stirred some emotions in you is a PLUS. The story went from one crazy event to another, keeping me on edge and needing to know how Arena was going to fix things. I do wish the use of “baby” between Bear and Arena wasn’t repeated so much because it loses its sweetness when they say it in every sentence. The character of Arena was a bit bland for me at the beginning of the story, and I didn’t start to actually feel a personality with her towards the end when she was framing Tom. She started out being so simple and reserved, and then she turned into a sarcastic twisted character. I like to be connected with the main characters, whether I love them or I loathe them, being emotionally invested in who the story centers around is one of the most important things to me. Therefore I would have liked to see a little bit more character development with her. A GREAT thing about Eve Rabis’ writing in this book is that everything flows and keeps moving. I didn’t get bored or skip through lines once while reading, it had a nice continuous grab on me the entire time.
So if you are like me and don’t normally read this kind of story, I think you should give it a try! There is WAY more going on than some guy hitting his wife and scaring his kids because he’s a lunatic. The author keeps you both ENTHRALLED and ENTERTAINED until you finish the story and realize you must have more. But don’t you worry, there is a second book! - One Way or Another: You Will Pay.
I couldn't put this book down! Ms. Rabi knows how to grab a reader's attention and hold it. SPOILER ALERT: Sadly having lost a child, I feel this author accurately wrote of the horrible, everlasting emotions a mother suffers. I've often been irritated when authors write about a parent's bereavement after losing a child as if they buried a pet hamster. Ms Rabi writes of the raw, horrific traumatic feelings a bereaved parent suffers. She also has true knowledge of how an intelligent woman can be fooled into an abusive relationship and not know how to escape! I loved the ending! I'm going to start "One Way or Another" right away. Kudos Ms Rabi!
That I ever made highlights in my e-book while reading, all because I hated the main character that much! Not only does the main character act in illogical ways. But she leaves her poor toddler in the hands of the abuser. Not only does she stay with the villain for far too long, but she even has another child with him. If you don't wish to read about horrible abuses committed on helpless children, I would not read this. Also, there are no real "pay backs" in the end. Not only that, but the dumb M.C. quickly gets into another relationship immediately after leaving the abusive husband. She's almost too stupid to live, to the point I almost switched sides in the middle of the story. Especially after her youngest suffers a most horrible tragedy that could have been prevented but was not. Save the blood pressure and your sanity, and just say no to this one.
Was looking for a breather, something no brainer and light to get away from the non fiction book I was reading and this was free so I decided to download it. I wish Amazon would create a separate category for intercultural romance novels and not just lump them all under the interracial heading.
From what I read the book was kinda boring and I really wanted to read an interracial novel not an intercultural one. I could be completely wrong because the author was really vague, the female protagonist was South African, she listened to music ranging to hip hop R&B and whole range of music in and between, she was partial to Rhianna, she had long hair, her skin marked very easily as evident by hand prints left on her face by her husband. She describes her daughter as a perfect image of herself but omits to even describe herself in any meaningful way. Sorry no time for this. Also couldn't stand the fact that the male lead's nickname was Bear, really? Guess i'lll just go back to my other book
