This book captivated me, entranced me and was totally compelling from start to finish. This book had various themes throughout it from friendship, family, heartache, love, passion and many more. This book also had a great deal of emotions from the characters that as the reader I could truly feel, such as, heartache, sadness, pain, hope, love and many more. These emotions from the characters were real and raw and the emotions I felt whilst reading it was, sadness, heartbreak, happiness hope that something can finally go right for these characters.
This was an incredible plot, that flowed from chapter to chapter with perfection, but to top it off this book had even better characters especially when I wasn’t getting so frustrated. I totally understand everything that has happened with Claire and her life, but at times she was really getting on my last nerve with the crying and the constant apologising to the incredible Benny who was by her side the entire time and never complained. There were times I wanted to hug Claire, but also times I wanted to shout at her to get herself together, and stop feeling so sorry for herself. She may be giving her life away but look at the incredible man she has to help her with this. Benny through her whole life has been with her, and even at times I wanted him just to yell at her and tell her to pull herself together, she really seemed to put the blame onto Benny, and make things uncomfortable for both of them and he really wasn’t the problem. Underneath it all they both really needed to confront each other and tell each how they really feel.
I won’t speak about Claire’s mum, that is a whole other story for another day that I could really ramble on about.
I LOVE the flashbacks to the summers that Claire & Benny had together, it really helped showed how close they were and how they really connected with each other.
My only thing that I would have loved this book to have was it being written in dual POV. There were many times through this story that I wanted to really find out what was going through Ben’s head, and what his thoughts and feelings were. I connected with him as a character even without his POV, I actually loved him, and everything he done, I would have just liked to have read more from him.
With this book, you also get some great secondary characters, I’d love to read a story from Amy (Claire’s Sister) after the events that occurred in this book she has a story to tell, but I’d also like to find out more about Ben and his family.
This book through all my frustration I loved it. It pulled me in, kept me hooked and I thoroughly enjoyed everything about it. I cannot wait until book 2 to see what story we get, and to see whether it will be as addictive, compelling and captivating as this one.
Claire Andrews has just come back from college to discover that her younger sister who she has always looked after is seriously ill. As all the conventional medicines has been exhausted she needs to find the money to carry on treatment but there is a catch her deceased father set up trust funds for both of them but they do not have access to them until they are twenty -one and are married but there is also stipulations around that, they have to be rich.
So as Claire tries to find a solution she instantly thinks of Benny her friend from years ago at the Hamptons, he helped her when no one really cared and he promised to protect her. So as she made an appointment to met him she was worried about the question she needs to ask him.
Benny is now not the boy she remembers from the holiday getaway, he is a successful Billionaire and works non stop, why would he agree to the question Claire is about to ask him, the only thing he has dreamed about her for years.
I enjoyed the way the story weaved through the vulnerability of Claire and the way even in death her father still manipulated her with the clauses within her trust fund. I also wanted to hug her when really Claire has no real person to lean on as her mother is selfish and not really interest in Claire or her sister but the money that will appear when the plan in actioned. The relationship between the main two characters fascinated me aswell as they have not really been friends for ages but Ben is willing to do anything to help Claire.
This is the first book I have read by this author and the style, pace and just likeability of the characters makes a great read. I would definitely read more books by this author in the future.
Since her Dad's death, twenty year old Claire has been holding the family together. She is shocked to find that the family wealth has either been used up by her mother or is locked in trust funds for Claire and her sister. Claire can access her money in a week's time when she turns twenty-one, but their is a will stipulation that she must be married to someone of equal or more financial standing.
She turns to childhood family friend Benjamin Lewis and basically asks him to marry her for the sake of Amy. He surprisingly agrees straight away, but his consent starts off a roller coaster ride of will they? Won't they, as Claire bounces from uncertainty about the wedding sham to loyalty to her sister.
Claire's character actions have been written in such a way that they drive many readers to frustration, her almost childlike petulance and stubborn anger create constant rebounding moments. Yet through it all Ben perseveres with his insistence that he wants to marry Claire and do the right thing. A different man may well have thrown the towel in and walked away with the treatment he received.
Claire's mother is an enigma, one moment a crushed mess unable to cope with her daughter's illness and the loss of her husband, the next a cold a callous matron following the money trail.
There's a lot of emotional anger in the book from many sides. Did it work for me? I don't know. I did want to see more depth and maturity to Claire. I also felt there was room to tighten the writing in places where small scenes and actions were over written with tendencies towards tautology.
Who might enjoy this book? I think it might appeal to readers new to the NA romantic genre.
