I can see where some would think Emma was pitiful or pathetic, but some of us can identify with her. Being encapsulated and molded by a family's expectations, being an only child whose own desires and hopes were overshadowed by her own parents, Emma made the only decision she was capable of, as did Jason, and that was to succumb to her parents' wants rather than her own. Good grief - she was so repressed by them, she did not have the fight in her to defy them. And Jason was too young and insecure to fight for her against the overwhelmingly wealthy family. They were both so young. They made mistakes, the wrong decisions.
This story is about the painful process of emerging from years of living with those wrong decisions. With some painful soul searching by both Jason and Emma, they begin the journey back to each other. Emma struggles to find her backbone to not only stand up for what she wants, but for the first time in her life, she begins to ask herself what it is she wants instead of what everyone else wants for her. And Jason is so torn by his pain from their breakup years ago and his drive for retribution, and the undeniable fact that he still loves Emma, that he struggles with his decision constantly while being lavished with Emma's never dying love for him.
I couldn't put the book down. It touched me.
In the story there is no dialogue between the main characters making it difficult to connect to their love story. It is up to the reader to fill in the past with whatever made this strong love connection between them. We got the point they lusted after each other, that we got!
It was extremely difficult to like the heroine as she is a doormat, however, in lesser ways lot of people live or have let their need for approval or validation. Some let it rule all their lives other let it rules certain moments, so this story takes the heroine to the extreme of the spectrum which makes it also difficult to connect.
The end goes to another extreme as it is a hollywood romantic comedy kind of ending, all dewy at the end.
Andre's latest spicy offering trades good plotting for an overabundance of sex. Other than the shared past and overactive libidos, this couple has nothing in common, and the constant sexual encounters just get really boring after awhile, as well as Emma's lack of a spine. A secondary romance for her friend Kate and his sous chef are promising, but again not fully developed. Andre has done much better - I loved her first novel "Take Me." This was a disappointment in comparison, and could have been so much more had the plot been developed, instead it is sadly just average.
Too much pondering their feelings, thinking about their situation rather than action, conversations and doing something. Several times Jason assumes Emma is lying which was not true - but merely a cheap device used by author to create conflict or plot. Most of the book is conflict due to the past and being separated. We don't get to see the developing relationship. Cover picture is wrong. The college is Stanford, not County. Jason has long hair not the short cut in the picture.
