Lisa Swinton is obviously a good author. She kept my attention the entire time and when I wasn't able to read, my mind was on the book and what was about to happen next.
However, Amanda just about drove me nuts. I felt that her continuous rejection of Blake was a bit overdone. At a certain point, I began to believe that Blake could do better with someone else. But, as people say, love is blind and he was in love with her. My heart broke for Blake over and over. He had been through so much pain and Amanda wasn't helping. But, his gentle persuasions eventually paid off. Amanda finally realized what a true gem he was and allowed him into her heart. FINALLY!
I was only given a PDF copy of the book, so my typical attempts to mark any mistakes I find were complicated by having to stop and write down a page number. But, considering the length of the book, I only marked 14 that really stood out.
Also, there were two plot mistakes that I guess just slipped through the cracks - The first had to do with the dates. Most everything happened in June. It sure did seem like a long month! Also, he was supposed to have a court date on July 5th that never got mentioned again. As I was reading, I struggled to fit everything into the time frame.
The second plot mistake was with the shower location. At the beginning of his stay with Amanda's family, we're told that he had to use the shower upstairs since the downstairs bath was only a half bath. Then, near the end of the book, he was showering downstairs. HUH??
Romance - PG for Kissing
Language - PG - The word "H*ll" was used
Grammar/Editing - B+ - at least 14 mistakes found and two plot holes.
I struggle with a rating for this because Amanda frustrated me, yet I fell in love with Blake. He was dream worthy. Then, I have to consider the mistakes - which may or may not be the author's fault.
So, I'm going to compromise and give a 3.5 which rounds to 4.
Amanda St. Clair had a "What happens in Vegas" moment when she married the rich playboy, Blake Worthington, whom she loathed for the past four years. Having the worst hangover of her life was not helping matters and all Amanda wanted was out of this so call marriage.
With a promise to have the marriage annulled from her "husband", Amanda returns home, praying for this to end with no-one finding out about her stupid mistake.
Her mistake was not so easily solved when Blake showed up on her doorstep, claiming that his parents cut him off and he has to pay for the annulment himself.
Not wanting the spoiled rich kid to mingle with her family, but seeing as how she has no choice, she reluctantly allows Blake to stay.
As the weeks went by and Blake did not go running back to his parents, Amanda sees a new side of Blake that she never knew existed. Now she finds herself wanting their marriage to be real but can she really trust Blake with her heart?
+Lisa Swinton wrote a book that had tears of pain streaming down my face. I felt for Blake, his family is messed up and unhappy. Whoever said that money can buy you happiness never met Blake's family. I can understand how Blake acted the way he did but for the life of me, I cannot, in no way, understand Amanda.
Amanda grew up with loving parents, awesome brothers and sisters and a neighborhood that knew and loved everybody. I do not understand how she could have turned out to be such a royal pain in the a**.
Because of something that happened four years ago, Amanda has condemned Blake to be a jerk for the rest of his life. No matter how much evidence showed that he is an AMAZING guy, at every chance she gets, she turns on him and makes him feel inadequate.
She knows that his life is in ciaos right now, she knows how much pain he's in but does she care, NO. All she cares about is herself. Her mom, father, brother, sister and best friend told her to give him a chance, but she has already written him off and wants him gone.
Even when she realized that she loved him do you think that she would go after him, well thing again! I cannot give away too much but just know Blake was a sweetheart and Amanda was a complete B*T*H.
The book was fun to read but not constant. Nothing in Amanda's past could explain her extreme lack of trust and empathy for others and that had Amanda in a bad light or me. If there was just something to fully explain the extreme to which Amanda took in pushing Blake away, and one kiss is not a good enough reason for me.
I had a nice time reading this book and hope Blake comes to his senses and dump her, but it does not seem as if that is going to happen.
Amanda has a plan, and preconceived notions about who Blake is and what she wants out of life. When she wakes up hung-over and married to him her only concerns is getting him out of her life, and getting back to the plan.
When Blake needs a place to stay he comes to Iowa and lives with Amanda and her family while he sorts out his own life and tries to make Amanda fall in love with her. Their courtship is full of ER visits, missteps, and a little bit of Scarlett & Rhett.
But through the night I stayed invested in the story and read straight through. Every girl dreams of Prince Charming,... and in the end that is what Blake turns out to be. Even surprising her with a lavish wedding of her dreams. Twice.
It's a clean romance. I appreciated the advice from Amanda's mom, Jenny, about living. (Also repeated from Blake in similiar form.) Basically not getting so caught up in life that you forget to live.
(Today I need a Dr. Pepper or Diet Coke.)
