>I am an independent reviewer. This book is the 3rd book in the Pretty trilogy and ends in an HEA. While this book has the happy ending everyone was waiting for, Kate turned into an insecure and unreasonable liar. She is almost unlikeable at times. When Kai goes to Kate in Australia, there is a lot of discussion about what happened. They decide to marry in secret order to end all of the scheming. Kate agrees, but then gets all bent out of shape over the marriage contract. Nothing in the contract was against her. Kate seemed so level headed in the first two books, that her immaturity was jarring.
>Kai is still quite the dominant, but a bit of cruelty is involved. A dominant being cruel is not romantic. In fact, that scenario is frightening. Kate is scared, but accepting. Now Kai’s motives seem suspect. As Kate tries to acclimate herself to her new life, there is a lot of humor in her phrasing and some of the side characters, especially the housekeeper.
>The plot conflicts in this book, the jealous cousin, Kate’s cheating ex and Kai’s ex sub are introduced, but each conflict is resolved rather quickly and with no real effort. This book is appropriate for an adult audience. I am giving this story 4 stars. The story stopped being about cultural differences in a romantic relationship and more about cruelty when 2 people don’t trust each other.
What a man Kai is. He’s so sexy, gorgeous, the kind of man every woman wants and when Kate often questions what it is that makes a man like him, want a woman like her, his answers just melt my heart. He sees so much in her that she can’t see and the way he speaks to her just makes me wish I knew a man like that. The sex is hot, they are hot as a couple. There is plenty of humor too. I laughed out loud so many times. There was drama and more to learn about the culture in Dubai. They had so much working against them. Kai’s father and an ex lover who tried everything to bring them down. A cousin who too wanted to tear them apart. I guess though, in the end, true love can prevail.
I must confess that I had to go back & read the final chapter of Pretty Liar to remind me of the ending because quite frankly I was so pissed & confused at Kai’s attitude & behavior at the beginning of Pretty Things. He was behaving like a total jerk. Ugggh, I wanted to throw my Kindle at him. At the end of Pretty Liar, Kai seemed to be so in love with Kate. His words blew me away. There was so much love there. I then started reading Pretty Things & he is treating Kate like a jerk. I couldn’t understand where it all came from. I just had to keep reading.
This is one thing I look for in a book. I want to be spellbound. I want to sink my teeth into the characters & take myself into their world. To feel this kind of emotion is phenomenal & not something I can feel with every book I read. The author did that with the 3 books in this trilogy. I look forward to future books by this author.
When I saw that it was a trilogy I promised myself that I would stop and write a review before going on to the next book. Half-way through reading this one I immediately went ahead and purchased the other two just to keep me feeling safe knowing they were there waiting for me to jump into. So the stopping to write a review for each was a lie I told myself; I just couldn't do it.
It's hard to take a plot that has been done over and over and over of late and make it different. Yes this has been told in many ways, and you will probably see a few similarities in this trilogy to remind you of another famous one; but it all stops there. Move this one to the top of your next to read list. The STORY woven around what is familiar certainly is not; it is fresh and interesting in and of itself alone. Now add to that sexy hot panty scenes and you have got yourself a fantastic read.
Go for it.
