There are things about this story that really worked for me. I seriously enjoyed the way the author created some very realistic situations between the heroine and her friends. Some readers might get angry about those situations, but in life, they happen, and by having them in this story, the author avoided the safe "sameness" that so many authors dispense. I also appreciate the believable dividedness Natalie experienced throughout the first 50%-60% of the book. Again, the author avoided the cliche of a heroine who instantly lets go and instantly behaves like this super strong female who easily kicks her past to the curb because it wasn't the bright-and-shiny bubble she thought it was. Natalie and her past had a history that she had to come to terms with in her own way and time. She aimed for a level of understanding and self-honesty I seldom read about.
The first 80% of this story is full of travel and emotional turmoils and sometimes laughter and sometimes a little heartbreaking and feels so visual and easy to relate to. It is a slow-burn romance, but the interactions between the MCs keep a person reading and pulling for the two of them. It was exciting to read a book so engaging after having DNF the last five or so that I started. I started this story and finished it in a day.
I was torn about my rating of this book. If I could have given 3.5 stars, I would have, but since I couldn't, I rated it up to 4 instead of down to 3. My biggest issue was that the last 15% or so didn't work out for me. I won't go into details, but I just felt like it was circling, and the book could have ended closer to that point and been a more balanced story. I did like the way the ending finally played out, so I went with the 4 stars.
I will say that seriously, if you love romance and are tired of the same well-worn story-lines, don't miss this one. Despite my feelings about the last part, I could go back and read it from the beginning just to experience the dynamics between Rhys and Natalie. Oh, yeah, about Rhys--what a sweetheart.
I thought this was a solid, if un-polished, first effort by a new author. Having not read in this genre before, I can't compare it with other similar works. But comparing it with fiction in general, it had some positives and some negatives.
On the positive side, the plot was interesting, if admittedly not that engaging for someone not normally into romances. Had the entire plot taken place around the main characters' suburban homes, I think it would have been a grind for me. But the settings at various national and state parks brought some color and intrigue.
On the negative side, I had a hard time liking any of the characters. Even the two main characters were so excruciatingly dense, and stubborn, that it was maddening. Perhaps that's standard fare for this genre though. Also on the negative side, I wish the author had gone more in-depth in "showing" us those exotic locations, rather than simply telling.
There were some problems typical with new indie authors such as inadequate editing and formatting of the eBook, of which I won't go into detail. For me and this review, I chose to grade the book on the merits of the story.
3 out of 5 stars.
I am grateful for the opportunity to share this review of Sloan with the world, as she was so kind to share her book with me.
If you love reading adventures, romance or otherwise, you will love this read. It took me a few nights of dedicated reading--I read EXTREMELY SLOW--but it was well worth the lack of sleep!
