Review courtesy of The Tattered Page:
Each and every time I have visited Barnes and Nobles recently, I have picked up Forever and stared at it curious about Noah and Rose's story. But it was the last books in Karen Ann Hopkins trilogy. So, when I finally decided to head to B&N to pick up Temptation low and behold there were no copies. of any of the three books in the trilogy. Anxious to read the trilogy, I got my butt on Amazon and purchased them.
I could not stop reading!
I am not even joking, for two days straight, I binge read the Temptation trilogy. From beginning to end, I was ensnared with Noah Miller and Rose Cameron's love story. The way Hopkins incorporated the Amish culture and using it as the basis for the forbidden love aspect was brilliant. And so darn believable.
When I say believable, I absolutely mean it. All of the characters, especially Noah and Rose were written so genuinely. They felt and were portrayed exactly as teens in their age would. Neither character was put on a pedestal. or flawless. There were times where I go frustrated with them, for being the teenagers they were. For instance, Noah was honorable, kind but selfish. Rose was the typical teenage girl but bitchy.
And I found the experience was refreshing.
Noah and Rose's story is about two teenagers falling in love for the first time and all the pains, headaches and adult interference that comes with it topped with an Amish twist. Temptation is definitely a worthwhile read.
Yes, I did mention that Noah drove me mad. So here is the deal. Noah and Rose's relationship escalates rather quickly. But that is just how it is for Noah and his people. Rose has the excuse that she is only 16. I remember being the exact same way at that age. I just knew I was going to marry my first love (also a forbidden relationship) and we'd be happy ever after. (We didn't, and I couldn't be happier.) But anyhow, the immediate love is not my problem. No, that all falls on Noah. The boy expects Rose to do all the sacrificing in the name of love. He wants her to leave her family and everything she has ever known to become Amish. Never once did he even remotely consider doing it himself and become English, besides in a fleeting thought. That is what made me mad.
But this was a brilliant and amazing love story because even though both were so wrong for each other in the eyes of their world, they still loved each other and fought for a way to be together. Even at their lowest, they still held out for the smallest of hope that it would all work out in the end. And that hope is what kept me reading and reading to the end. I had to know would if it work out. Would they still feel the same at the end? It definitely is an addicting storyline that is for sure.
4 Stars and I look forward to when I can start the next book in the series. I have to know if the choices that were made were for the best or if there is change coming. It worries me and excites me where the book left off for what is to come.
Once again, the story is well written and well edited, finding only one major editing error in the form of an extra word or two, and I cannot even remember what page it was on. The fact that I could keep reading in spite of an error like that is a testament to how well written and captivating this story really is.
To get a glimpse into how Noah and Rose's story began, to get a glimpse into how these two worlds collided, was like a breath of fresh air into my pollution clouded lungs. All around us in the real world, we see how complicated relationships can be, how much life can cloud our judgment and make decisions impossible.
And yet, here are two young people with insurmountable obstacles who try everything in their power to make things work, despite the odds being stacked against them.
How would you handle falling in love with a guy who was from a completely different culture, a completely different world? I couldn't even begin to imagine.
This author has a gift for painting a picture and drawing you into a world and a life beyond your wildest imagination and I cannot wait to read more.
