There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I purchased this book because it had several 5 star reviews. That was my mistake. Honestly, the description didn't have me completely sold, but I thought that with so many good reviews it would make for a quick evening read. I wasn't looking for Jane Austen or the next great American novel; just a story to pass the time.
That's not what I got. The book is a slow read and confusing. There are grammar and punctuation problems throughout, as well as timeline inconsistencies. For example, one scene occurs around 7 a.m., but when the events are later discussed, they are said to have happened "tonight." Other small inconsistencies happen, too. One of the characters drives a Mercedes until suddenly he drives a Mustang, only to be back in a Mercedes in the next chapter.
The plot was pretty basic: Girl running from a troubled past. Guy with a secret saves the day. (I'm assuming he actually ends up saving the day. I only made it through 70% of the book.)
I'm not saying that this type of story doesn't work. It does! I've read it several times in several different ways and liked it, but this book did nothing new with that basic idea. No interesting twist. Couple that with the grammatical errors that made me want to take a red pen to my iPad and it just wasn't worth my time or energy.
WAKE UP CALL
By Victoria Ashley
When Avery turned 18 she packed her bags and left her abusive family to make a fresh start but working in a strip club and she is struggling to pay her rent. She meets Jace when he rescues her from being attacked one night and being on the verge of being evicted he swoops in and rescues her. He gives her a roof under her head and a job but she can't open up to him.
This is a really good read and is very emotional and had me crying quite a few times. There is domestic and child abuse in it but it is well written and that makes it makes a cracking read.
Avery is a great character that I liked instantly and as it went on I found that I got to know her character really well and saw a strong and brave young woman that I admire.
Jace is great too I found him to be quite hot and he always seems to be the hero and rescuing everyone.
Both characters develop very well and have a great chemistry, the other characters are also great and are well written.
A brilliant love story that I really enjoyed reading.
I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.
I am giving Wake Up call 5 stars for Amazon and 4 for Goodreads
What was wrong with it? There were typo's, grammatical errors and time confusion (it is morning, then it is night in the same scene). I can normally overlook these. I think for me it was the actual progression of the story - not the way it progressed, but how it was written. As written I feel as though some of the scenarios were unbelievable and forced, also assumptions had to be made by the reader to accept it. It is as though the author had a flow diagram for the body of the book and we just jumped from point to point: (I want him to see her, so he will see her; I want him to save her, so he will save her; I want him to convince her to room with him, so she will be convinced and will room with him....).
For me, the magic just did not exist. Unfinished. Discarded. Zero to half a star. Recommended: NO.
