I also love books that have strong men who don't grunt their ways through the story. The word alpha has burned itself out for me so I'm always chuffed when I just find a man in a book who's all man - flaws, fears, mistakes and all. No arrogance, no crazy possessiveness, no dominance. Just a strong man with as many worries and sucesses as normal. Here we have Bobby who is just a guy trying his best to keep himself on the right side of the law, taking jobs where he's lucky enough to find them until he meets Carly. And she's lovely! Rich yes, but not perfect. Just a nice woman who happens to have a rich dad. Anyway with them comes a good supporting story that covers a decent length of time to play out. So in a fictional story such as theirs, that length of time gives their relationship credibility.
I loved this book!!! I've never read from either authors before so I'm a bit perplexed as to where to turn to find another novel by either of these two with this kind of writing and characters. But I'll definitely be making it my business to find which book I want next from them.
Highly recommended !! Fabulous find and I can't urge you enough to read.
Anyway after a day or so I have come to the conclusion that I was missing time.
It was a fast paced read – yep and in normal circumstances that is never a bad thing, it keeps me engaged and the action just keeps on coming but in this instance I sort of got the feeling that it was going too fast for the characters, I wanted Bobby and Carly to slow down, relax and enjoy and I’m not 100% certain that the story gave them the opportunity to do that.
From almost the minute the bumped into each other their situation was frenetic.
Now I get and I like a woman that knows her own mind and she knew that she wanted Bobby but she was like a dog with a bone, jeez woman stop and take a breath at some point!
I did like the fact that she wasn’t deterred by his past, by his criminal record or by the opinions that others had of him but surely his opinion should have been taken into consideration. I got the feeling that he was desperately trying to find a way out of the whole body guard offer, so she offered enough money to ensure he couldn’t say no.
Now that I wasn’t comfortable with.
I initially thought that getting her own way was more important to her and that is not a path I wanted either of them to travel down. But she partially redeemed herself as the book progressed although I will hands down say she is not entirely my cup of tea.
I suppose if I had to sum it up I would say that I liked Bobby, he was a strong man, not because of what he had been through but despite of it.Read more ›
I've never read a whole book before that was written from the lead male character's pov, plus it's written in the first person.
I thoroughly enjoyed every page, it wasn't fantasy, or far fetched, I feel that the events could actually happen.
How can you like a convicted self confessed murderer, very easily when it's Bobby.
Give this book a read, it's well worth the time and money spent on it.
Bobby Cantrell Ex-Con, convicted killer. Down and out on his luck, struggling with trying to be accepted back into society after serving his time for the crime he committed. After losing yet another job he thinks his luck has finally run out...until he meets her. Carly Prince gorgeous, untouchable and everything Bobby want buts knows he can never have...or can he? Maybe just maybe he's found someone who sees the good in him when he can't. What he can't do is escape his past. A past that is now threatening to destroy the new life he is building for himself, and threaten those who he has come to care about. Can he protect them or will he end up with more blood on his hands...
Although I quite enjoyed this book, for me personally it didn't really pick up the pace until around 85% of the book which up until that point it had been quite a slow build up, sometimes a little repetitive however, that being said I couldn't put the book down. Initially told through Bobby's POV we get an insight to his thoughts and feelings and daily struggles at dealing with life on the outside after serving his time in prisons. I enjoyed the dynamics in the relationship between Booby and Carly and thought as characters they were connectable and had depth. The plot line was also enjoyable, as I've said a little slow for me but again there was still enough going on to keep you interested. I thought the secondary characters also had depth to them and were connectable. I enjoyed the banter between the primary and secondary characters and laughed out loud a few times.
Overall an enjoyable read. Would recommend to readers who enjoy a slow building, suspenseful read.
