A pursuit that is far from over
on 7 October 2013
***IMPORTANT*** To truly appreciate this book read "Illicit Pursuit" first.
After reading the prequel I was left emotional and angry and little respect for Adam. The ending of Illicit Pursuit(IP) was a little vague and I was soooo frustrated. I really struggled with the idea of reading The Pursuit of Passion as I was feeling quite indifferent toward Taylor and Adam.
But...I slowly started reading and got to know Taylor a bit better. The misconception that she was instrumental in the way IP ended slowly faded and I realised that she could not be held responsible. Adam on the other hand...WELL!
It took me quite a way in to the story to open my mind a little to him. Quite a few answers came to light, making IP a little more understandable.
Taylor tries her damnedest to be true to herself and what she believes. She struggles through out the story warring between her conscience and her desires. Adam's actions almost border on the verge of badgering poor Taylor. Adam really gets so caught up in his passion and desire for Taylor that he often does not consider just how over bearing he is.
This book isn't just about Adam and Taylor...poor Taylor has an enemy who is out to destroy her. It is during these attacks that Adam becomes super protective and poor Taylor feels smothered. And just when Taylor start's opening to the possibility of happily ever after, her enemy strikes again...and again.
This story is far from finished. While The Pursuit of Passion has set some light on a few things, Ms Bennett definitely has so much more to tell. Don't be swayed by the unexpected events in either book. Read them with an open mind and Trust that Ms Bennett has her readers best interest at heart...she has a story to tell and it's unique to anything I have read so far!
