With that said, yes, I suffered through this book.
I love romances. I love crime thrillers. I love mysteries. I love government thrillers with committees and dirty deeds. I love all types of books. With that said, this review is one star NOT because it wasn't my genre or cup of literary tea, because it should have been.
First, the book started EXTREMELY slow and spent WAY too much time on a character that you never see again after the first few chapters she's in.
Second, the female lead was extremely annoying, shallow even internally, and wasn't developed in the least.
Third, the book was 40,000 words too long which is saying a lot since I very rarely ever say that.
Man falls in love with woman right away, from a picture of her as a minor, painted by a child molester?
Okay, it could happen.
Woman is a world famous model even though she doesn't model in the US?
Eh, not likely but we'll go with it.
The worst parents in the world being the focus of the story and the only thing giving it any type of conflict?
*Dramatic sigh* sure, why not?
But what wouldn't happen is having trained operatives that work for the government doing their dirty deeds having a model get the slip on them.
That wouldn't happen in any way, shape or form.
I understand that there needed to be SOMETHING there, but come on. Can we at least pretend that it is slightly realistic?!
The sex scenes between the leads were anything but romantic or stimulating.Read more ›
The story revolves around Miranda Beckman, a top fashion model living in Paris, and Conor O'Neil, an investigator working for the US government.
The plot was interesting but the story was so long and drawn out that it became boring. The way the main characters kept going back and forth doing the same things over and over was also annoying and repetitive.
Then, when it came to the ending, instead of tying up all the loose ends and wrapping the story up nicely, the author decided to rush things and left many unanswered questions.
If you looking for a good romance novel.... this is the book for you.
Definitly a MUST READ!!!
I myself, loved the book. Yes, some parts are graphic, some language, but the story I felt was well written. I like a story when it is a story, in other words I am a visual person, and with every sentence it drew me in. I thought Miranda and Conor's story was exciting, with a lot of mystery. Miranda was not a bitch or yelling through out the book, at least that is my perspective; as so many said in the reviews. You need to look at her take on her life. I will not say why I say this because I do not want to spoil the book for anyone. I loved Conor, what a sweetheart, a true hero, a man's man. And as far as the ending goes.... I loved it. So if you want a lot of excitement, adrenalin rush, and love; then this book it for you. Thank you Sandra Marton.
I just got tired of waiting for something more to happen. The character's weren't developed enough. I hate that he suddenly started calling her "baby," and who would not know right off the bat that her gay friend was, well, gay. I have to admit though I did like his character, the gay friend... he made me smile - he was, I thought, more developed then the main characters, but I knew he was gay as soon as he was introduced. Hoyt was a total butt head and Mom was a total sleeze. I hated her right off the bat, which I suppose is what the author wanted. However, I wanted her to have somekind of maternial instinct. She was too bad - nothing good about her at all. Reminded me of the cinderella stepmother.
Conner reminded me too much of a highschool jock with a jealous streak and hormonal issues he couldn't quite come to grips with. He just wasn't believable enough for me in a posistion such as the one he was in. He needed more control.
Miranda was shallow and a little too bitchy. I undertand why she was the way she was, but... IDK she was somehow lacking any real personality.
the first kiss.... another eye roll. The filler was annoying as it really dragged the story down. It needed to be edited too, the gramical errors stood out, although I was able to read through them. The scences of romance/sexual seemed somewhat forced, and a little rushed.
I did like a lot of the descriptive writing and some of the things Conner said made me smile.Read more ›
