I had this book in my TBR file for quite a while. I am not sure what kept me waiting to download it unless it was the title. Between the title and the blurb I was intrigued but not committed. I was pleasantly surprised once i broke open the first chapter.
The Story: Girl suffers a deep tragedy and awakens to a whole new life. Fast forward in time and girl is engaged to a prominent man in their community. Girl is coasting through life, not living but coasting. Girl meets nephew of her fiance and learns that maybe there is something more to life than being a doctors trophy.
Hero/Heroine: Harlow is the female lead in this story that is told through dueling POV’s. She is young, naive and alone. She is very malleable at the beginning and gradually grows a back bone. Sinclair (Sin) is the hero. He is interesting, although, i don’t like his name at all. It was used to illustrate that he was a player prior to meeting Harlow, but that really doesn’t come across. As a character, he would have been even better as a regular guy instead of a player, since he came off that way. Hearing of his unsaintly past was in opposition to the way he was written. Even still, I loved him.
Characters: There were a few characters aside from the main three, but they were really negligible. Aside from the grandmothers, the rest were fillers. The best friend was pointless, Sin’s best guy was a throwaway, the doorman and the club guy were pointless.
Editing: Nothing stood out to me as egregious in the editing. If there were errors, they didn’t take away from the story or the reading.
Final Thoughts: While I may have had issues with some of the finer points of the story, the book was good. I enjoyed it immensely, and enjoyed the growth of the characters as well. It was a smooth read and I was able to read it in a number of hours. I look forward to more by this author.
