I’m Afraid i couldn’t finish this.
Penelope Ward has an interesting style and her time jumps reveal the back story rather nicely. However the plot of this book just struck as over the top and unblievable from the second half onwards.
At first, i thought it was interesting, but after the characters have sex, Mack’s ex barges in and all hell breaks loose along with my interest. The ex it seems takes Umbridge to him having a lover even though it’s made very clear she’s seeing other people, and then proccedds to take their son back across the country. Forcing Mack to sell everything and follow. If that wasn’t weird enough, his estranged dad then pops by to tell him he know’s about Frankie’s past and if Mack doesn’t wash his hands of her and go back to his family, he will spread the word about it (a act that would have her and her mother killed ‘WTF!).
This book wasn’t for me, hopefully the third book i read from Lady Ward will hit the mark.
Oh, and what’s the deal with the cover? Afraid i have to subtract marks for the guy with his shirt off. I know the audiance (female readers) love the sight but for me, a cover should tease at the plot. This tells me nothing and as the character generally spends his time with his cloths on, it’s more than a little inacurate.
