Parked for other mood This book had potential but unfortunately the outcome is disappointing I read Absinthe by this writer and it was really good but this one is nowhere close to it The writer seems

Absinthe by this writer and it was really good but this one is nowhere close to it The writer seems to have wanted to put all kinds of tropes in one book and it is, for that reason, a shallow book because while trying to deal with each trope in 280 pages, none turns out to be deep enough, or none is convincing enough.I thought this was going to be a hate to love story but it wasn t as simple as that There are lots of major tropes that are used all together, which makes it a mess We have tropes such as foster system kids, adoption, evil mother evil brother, major illness heart transplant, death of a loved one dead ex , and as if all that is not enough, we also learn that view spoiler the hero has her dead ex s heart yeah, what a coincidence hide spoiler The book starts with a misunderstanding and the hero treats the heroine in a disgusting way He is extremely rude to her He is also full of wrong assumptions about her When they meet again by accident a few times , he takes his rudeness and cruelty to a higher level However, the heroine is a bit weird, too She is like Pollyanna, and I don t like Pollyanna I mean I don t like people who still treat others with extreme kindness although they treat them like shit This woman believes that there is always something good behind people s cruel fa ade and she treats the hero like a puzzle and tries to solve him However, how she does it and what she does is also insane, writing him emails and sending him her telephone number etc., saying if he needs a friend she will always be there She believes that hurt people hurt people so that s why he was cruel to her Well, maybe, I shouldn t blame the man for his wrong assumptions, she was too good to be true and he was right to think that she was fake So, in short, these two people can t be anydifferent from each other She is all sun shines and unicorns while he is dark and bitter Some readers say that things happened so quickly They are right in a way But if you ask me, the main problem is not how fast but how it makes you feel that there is something missing That s why, it feels like things happened so quickly In fact, the transition is missing There is no transition from being strangers to lovers.It feels like some chapters or pages are missing At first, he is all cruel with his wrong assumptions Then, he hires someone to do some research about her He learns the truth, he learns that she is not a gold digger and she was not lying about her past life He realizes that he was wrong about her However, there is no groveling or proper apologies They are on top of each other all of a sudden because she is so forgiving Their becoming lovers was not smooth, nor was it convincing I was like, What did I miss How did this happen now Did I miss some chapters And because it happens awkwardly, it doesn t make you feel I wasn t feeling anything, and thus, I didn t care much about whatever happened later After they became lovers, the book lost me I just read on feeling nothing I think the writer was dealing with so many issues at the same time that she failed in delivering all of them in a successful way Romance was not convincing Their passion or connection was zero in my eyes His transformation from a bitter, rude and cruel person to a loving man who wants a family was definitely not convincing, either The coincidence about what really binds them together was way too much in all this mess view spoiler He was carrying her dead ex s heart hide spoiler And also, their reactions to that matter were so shallow.As I said, there was no time or place in a 280 page book to deal with those major issues in a proper way They were doomed to be all shallow All in all, we can say that the book fails to deliver a good romance because it is lost in the sea of too many tropes If you want to read something good from this writer, I would recommend that you try Absinthe 2 sLet me catch my breath since I have just finished this cruel stranger s marathon story The first couple of chapters had me hooked and I was very excited Astaire and Bennett were totally opposite characters, yet very interesting She was joyful and pleasant, he was an arrogant and cruel arsehole Bennett was cold, indifferent and remote, I couldn t believe he responded to Astaire s emails and wrote so many words It was so out if his character Astaire, towards the ending mentioned she 2 sLet me catch my breath since I have just finished this cruel stranger s marathon story The first couple of chapters had me hooked and I was very excited Astaire and Bennett

rude to her And as the plot was building, there were so many elements emerging, where one succeeded the other and there was no time neither for development nor to catch up Moreover, they were so interrelated and so coincidental that the outcome was not genius at all Regarding the cover, it was fantastic but completely irrelevant DNFI listen up to 2 hours of the audio book I hate putting a book under DNF Sadly, I give up The blurb promising so much of mystery and hot romance However I can not connect with anything in this book The beginning of this book is sexy then it turns cold I guees the problem is the main characters trying their best to reveal who they are to each other Miss Renshaw also fails to build the tension, mystery and the romance afterward It does not grab my attention 2 stars
