Two things I don't understand: people who gave this a five star review, and why the author is opposed to hiring a professional editor.
(When you eat something sweet, for example, it's called "dessert", not "desert").
Perhaps I read an early outline that was never supposed to be published?
Our h grows up with the H but when she finds out that her dad is not her biological dad and that her mom has been living a double life for more than 2 decades, she runs away. The h has been in love with the H for years and after an embarrassing and unreciprocated declaration on her part, she leaves the US and the H behind. The h's mother then incentivises the H to follow the h and get her to Rome to meet her biological dad. The H now decides he loves the h and needs to convince her. My disappointment with this story is that it feels like the H is disloyal to the h at several points in the book. I didn't ever feel like he loved her so much that he couldn't live without her. Some of the things that happen are downright hurtful to the h, including the part where the H takes his girlfriend back to his apartment that he shares with the h and has lusty sex in her hearing. I just didn't love reading about that.
To recap, Katie ran to Europe and was just traveling lite after cutting ties with her family. She found out that her biological father was NOT the father she was brought up by, even though she's among the richest in the country and a blueblood. Her biological father was one of the richest men in Europe and had an affair with her mother, and she was the result, and she had been living a lie for 20+ years. She had just wanted a simple life with her best friend Jason, whom she wanted since she was eight, but now, she just wanted to travel through Europe, avoiding the media, avoiding... everybody, except maybe find her biological father. What she did not know is Jason is much closer than she thinks. For Jason had been tracking her, having been retained by her mother to find her. When bad guys came after her for her money and a mastermind who want to stop her from reaching Rome, Jason has to save her, even if it means betraying her trust.
Frankly, even after I finished the book, I don't quite get why was the mastermind so intent on stopping Katie from reaching Rome, enough to hire thugs all over Italy to stop Katie and Jason, not to mention tracking devices, to the tune of huge paydays for the head thugs. And Jason seems to be super-spy worthy, a little too competent? At least the relationship seems quite competently written.
I have a few questions:
- Not entirely I understand the situation of the mother in view of the law. She committed the bigamy whether no? If yes, why wasn't she punished?
- Why at the end nobody became interested who rented thugs and is behind a kidnapping?
It would be better if the book was longer. Through this relationship between Jason and Katie it seems unrealistic. They were friends, not a couple. They have not seen for a year, and after meeting the next day she jumps into his bed (being a virgin).
With this book you can spend an nice evening. Ending begs for reaching for the second book.
From the very beginning anytime there is the slightest bit of action the author brings it to a grinding halt by adding pages of back story. For example, the heroine is being chased by baddies and suddenly she's thinking about a party, or a non-related event that happened earlier in her life. Time and time again these non-related pieces of back story (pages long) are added in for no reason.
There are so many beginner's errors in this book I found it hard to finish. I kept hoping it would improve, but it didn't. I won't try this author again.
