Some times the build up to a sub plot seems impossible to surprise you the next with a believe able outcome.
I gave the book five stars because of the story and the plot but also for the quality of the text.
Thank you Sara-Lisa Anderson for writing this book and I look forward to read your other books.
I firmly believe that the author doesn't want you to like Lainey. Despite her negativity and somewhat selfish behavior I respected her. The author did a good job of creating a complicated character. Her history as well as her future drives her. Palle by contrast was a very naive character. His sweetness and interactions were believable and not overdone. I appreciated that he recognized his strengths and weaknesses. The author did a good job creating believable main characters. There really aren't much in the way of supporting characters besides Palle's mom.
A very realistic feeling plot that is both intriguing, but also entertaining. This is a steady book that doesn't get too slow to lose the readers interest. Lainey's history as an immigrant added an extra complexity that was welcome. I appreciated that her choices hurt her as much as helped her. In real life this is very much the case. It as also a different romance then I'm used to with Palle being the sweetie and Lainey the domineering personality. It was refreshing. Their romance and sensual scenes were sweet and endearing.
I loved the romance, the building to it. It was well written and easy to read. I appreciate the characters didn't rush into anything and that the author waited. It was a very enjoyable romance. Not to mention the author did a great job playing to the setting.
That being said what I didn't like was the ending. Without ruining anything that isn't in the summary, Lainey is robbed by her manager. How they get the money back is just a little too convenient for my book. The problem steamed from how easy it was. As terrible as it is I wanted Lainey to struggle to get her money back but it just fell to a coincidence. Furthermore the resulting ending felt rushed. I did enjoy the very last chapter - that was a nice touch - but the lead up just kind of resolved everything and shoved you over the cliff to the end in one chapter.
Great characters, interesting plot, and a sweet contemporary romance that just I felt had too much of a rushed ending to truly be a satisfying read. If you don't want more information after they get together and are a 'just get to the happily ever after already' this book is for you!
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
So needless to say, Lainey is a bit upset about all of this and flees, only to run into Palle, a sweet and slightly nerdy guy who really just wants to help. There were many different things about this story that I found interesting. Mainly the dynamic between Lainey and Palle. In many of the romances I've read, the male is the very clear dominant. The alpha. Not so much in this case. It was oddly refreshing for someone who really enjoys a good strong male lead.
Lainey was a frustrating character and very difficult to like. And while she paid the price for many of her decisions, I had some trouble rooting for her at times. She did eventually end up growing on me and overall, this was a very satisfying read. As an avid lover of contemporary romance, this book certainly hit the mark and was a very worthy way to spend a day. A very nice read!
Until We Lay was a perfect summer read for me, paced well and not too ‘romance novel-y.’ Yes, there’s romance in the book but there’s so much more depth to the tale of Lainey and Palle. I’m looking forward to book 2 in the Scandinavian Winter Romance series.
I received Until We Lay via LibraryThing in exchange for my unbiased review.
