She has this guy following her. Taking pictures & pulling tricks on her. What does she want to do about it? Ignore it. Just pretend he's not there. Then gets furious when the hero try's to talk to her about doing something to stop it.
Ok then hero gets angry at her for getting angry at him, & starts staying away from her.
Acts like a jerk to her & spends time with another women (innocently on his part) but still!!! When hero try's to connect with her we spend the rest of the book reading about the heroine constantly pushing the hero away. The dance around each other never talking about what was really going on. I was so frustrated. She had the right to be mad at him a couple of times when he was a jerk, & those were the times she decides NOT get furious with him!!! Why? When he trying to help her she throws a fit. When she really has a reason to throw down she acts like a wimp & a martyr. She thinks he wants another women so she just takes herself out of the picture without even asking him.
Then he finds out that that is what's wrong with her. Instead of settling things right then, he puts it off. I just don't get it.
As you can tell by reading this I'm no writer, but I know what I like. This is just my opinion. Others might not be bothered by these things. I would have loved to seen more action. Maybe them running from the bad guy & him actually doing some of the dirty work himself.
I absolutely loved Abby's story & would read more from this author.
This installment was no exception to above. The author created initially an intense atmosphere around the heroine, which plunged me right away into the events. I immediately felt for her and suffered with her for the hard hand life has been dealing her. The hero was charming in his very own way, the villain well crafted, his motivations thouroughly explained.
The hero was portrayed as much more silent and introvert than they usually are. I haven't read all the books in the series and maybe that's why I couldn't relate to his need for seclusion and isolation, which at times let his behavior appear as slightly unsocial. Maybe a bit more information referring to this characteristic would have supported his role better and made him more likeable. In any case, I loved how he felt he had to protect Sophie and how he finally was drawn out of his shell.
Sophie's life was very difficult and complex. I could definitely understand why some of her reactions seemed out of context or illogical and was very pleased to see that she gradually matured and discovered her real "self". No doubt, Stone and Sophie were definitely good for each other but the process leading to this insight was occasionally a bit painful for me as a reader. Sometimes I just wanted to shake both of them and tell them how easy the solution to their "problem" was. On the other hand, isn't this reaction of mine the author's success?! Hadn't it been for this constellation, I wouldn't have reacted with this impatience....... Anyway, consider yourself warned, there were many nerve-racking back and forths, which were used to build up moments of suspense. In any case, I expected more on the "suspense-side" of the plot and was slightly disappointed to find out that the plot had nothing more to offer.
Generally speaking not a bad read, although I expected more.
P.S. If you liked this theme, try by Karen Rose: "Don't tell"
guards of LA series. I even took the day off from work today and I enjoyed every
page thoroughly. Cate has woven a meaningful story about a courageous woman who
overcomes domestic violence to build a life for herself. The story revolves around the
central theme of domestic violence which so many women endure globally. My best
friend is a victim of domestic violence. She is terrified to let go. The author beautifully
shows the readers the struggles and fears that Sophie goes through to break free. There
is pain in sorrow and beauty in the tears. The heroine is broken and whole. She survives
to show us that if you have the courage and the will you can overcome all odds.
Stone is an alpha hero, strong, chivalrous and so honorable. Saving Sophie is about abuse,
courage, romance, honor and so much more. I really loved reading a romantic suspense without graphic and gory descriptions. A wonderful recommended read!!
