OK. I’m going to start this review with an apology. I am sorry for what I am about to write. I know that the author will have worked really hard to craft a story that she believed in, but I’m afraid that, for me at least, it completely missed the mark.
At the outset, the writing style felt akin to that in a school essay. The narrative voice did improve, and relax as the tale went on, but the plot, sadly, didn’t.
I simply didn’t find any of this believable. From the initial insta-love, to Stephanie’s childhood, or the speed of Jake and Stephanie’s relationship. None of it. And I think that probably, the problem was compounded by the novella format that this story was shoehorned into.
Not for me.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
