Now, it's fair to say that Mia is a bit of a troubled soul, has trust issues and is seeking to mend her broken heart somehow with meaningless sex. Then she gets a "too good to be true" offer and the shenanigans really begin. And what a shady path it is that the reader is taken down.
It was very easy to get caught up in this story. Mia is an intensely frustrating character. Ethan is significantly more likeable, and the supporting cast of Mia's friends all have their own unique voices and character traits,and are more than just background noise to the narrative.
That said, for me at least, the real jewel in this book is the connection between Mia and Ethan. Initially at a simmer, but rapidly increasing to boiling!
Ms Koenig's writing evoked an emotional response from me, and I look forward to reading the next in the series.
I'm still unsure of Ethan, he seems so perfect... But surely he can't be?
Conflicted is the absolutely perfect title for this book because it not only describes the story but also how the reader will feel after reading it! According to Kindle, it was 385 pages which is a good story length but somehow it felt so much longer. This is probably because of the amount that happens in this story. It is full of twists and turns, characters turn out to be different to what you originally thought and the plot, well, take it from me that the baseline is a simple one but it gets very convoluted with all the goings on.
Mia is the main female and I couldn't quite come to grips with her. I understand that her world imploded and she felt an amazing amount of pain which no one should have to go through. I didn't like her way of 'coping' but also understand that everyone reacts differently. She seems like someone who is ruled by her body, which is completely different to what we were being told about her, which is one of the reasons I literally snorted out loud when Ethan says that he never thought of her as a 'party girl'. I'm sorry but in my book, someone who throws college parties most, if not every, weekend with loads of beer, drinks shots and wakes up with hangovers frequently, makes her quite the party girl!
Ethan is a whole new story. We don't learn much about him but he finds out quite a lot about Mia. Still waters definitely run deep with this one and I can't wait to find out more. I just hope he doesn't turn into a 'Hans' man.
Micah, Jackson, Shane, Bri - these are all secondary characters that still play a huge role in the book but I feel the surface has only been scratched with all of them.Read more ›
It was the kind of book that I don't think was relaxing, probably because I was trying to work things out as I was reading. It was like un-knotting a ball of tangled wool....you smile at the end result, but it's a puzzle to get there!
The room mates were all different characters and they all had Mia's best interests at heart but I felt they were better friends to her, than she was to them. I can't say I connected with her as much as I did with some of the others. She seemed very young and easily led.
I'll certainly be interested to see where this story goes as I'm not sure the people I think I trust, will end up being the trustworthy ones in the end!!
Conflicted is book #1 in the Secrets and Lies series by M.M. Koenig. It’s the first book I have read by this author and I was lucky enough to have been gifted a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review...
I’m a bit stumped by this book, it isn’t a massive book but it felt really, really long!!!
It seems to me that everyone in this book is hiding something and lying to someone else about it!!!
I’m sorry to say I didn’t like Mia; she’s so cagey I found her incredibly difficult to relate to her or engage with her story.
What I will say is that this author is a master at keeping the reader on their toes, only very small amounts of the plot are revealed at a time. I thought I had the story figured out and then a small detail would be exposed that threw me for a loop and the plot wide open again!!!
I don’t know why but I don’t trust Ethan at all, I just kept waiting for him to turn into the bad prince from Frozen and totally turn on Mia, I think he just seems too good to be true!!! He’s absolutely relentless in his pursuit of Mia but he manages to get her to open up and reveal her secrets whilst we learn absolutely nothing about him.
I’m trying to keep this spoiler free so this may seem vague but I think we all knew how things with Harrison were going to turn out!!! The bloke just needed to be in a spinning chair stroking a white cat!!!
Also what the hell happened to Micah I get the impression he’s somehow all caught up in this too!!!
I get the impression that this series has lots of twists and turn still ahead and I don’t think it’s going to end up how we anticipate!!!Read more ›
