Masterpieces to be masterpieces have to be well written and well edited.
The grammar, spelling mistakes and punctuation were execrable. I'll give you a few examples:
bosses (plural) instead of boss's or boss'
for safeties sake instead of for safety's sake
pined instead of pinned. foggie instead of fogey
infamous instead of famous
your instead of you're
facile mind (!) instead of fertile mind, perhaps??
The bulk of the plural nouns had apostrophe "s" instead of just a plain old "s" - dog, dogs. What's with all these apostrophes?????????
OK - so the overall impression was of a poorly written and edited book. The story - plodding, too long, crap dialogue. Quite enjoyed the characters, though.
Advice - pay for a real publisher. Try Bold Stroke Books. They are good!
"This had to of just happened" instead of "This had to have just happened"
The first thing that strikes you about the book is the cover. Although some may find it provocative, I like it when the cover of a book hints of the forthcoming story. The intimacy of touch and the trace of a gasp on the well dressed woman’s face while the other woman whispers in her ear summarise the book perfectly……….
The book quite neatly divides into three distinct parts. In the first, we learn about Nia’s life and world. It’s easy to get absorbed in the detail and care that K’Anne has paid to Nia’s character, which passes easily for the reader and keeps your interest peaked for what is to follow. There are nice touches here, particularly around the concessions that Nia makes in order to pursue her career, the need for a mentor, the importance of networking etc. Mirroring real life, we explore and learn how Nia reacts and adapts by these situations, in particular, how she maintains her privacy around her personal life. All of which give the reader an appreciation of what Nia’s life is like, setting the scene for what follows.
The second part is all about Nia’s exploration of herself, her sexuality (and the Big ‘O’) and ultimately the emotions, care and simple act of being that comes from a relationship with the one we love. Here, the story is more romance focussed and there’s less business, which some people reading this genre of book will appreciate more. As with the first part, Nia’s experiences mirror real life, with each relationship adding another facet to her understanding of what she is looking for from “the one”. There are also a number of interesting plot lines at work here with explosions, consequences of past relationships as well as development of the Colleen character for what is to the ending.
For me, the final part was about living your life with your perfect partner no matter what life throws at you as well as enriching your life with more than just the material things. Here the book explores personal and professional integrity and how these are tested in two specific scenarios. As we might expect from Nia after learning about her in part one and then understanding her in part two, she stands tall in the face of the various challenges she faces. I won’t spoil the ending for you, but it’s about the “changing of the old guard” and looking forward to a positive future.
Before I finished, I wanted to end by saying a couple of things about the editing and the spelling which a number of people have drawn attention to in other book reviews. Sure, there are a couple of typos and the books editing and vanacular might not suit everyone, but for me personally, it didn’t stop me enjoying it and, please, don’t let it stop you.
This book is definitely one of the best I've read since SHIPS. Now waiting for the next. I maybe slightly biased and you may not agree, that's ok as I don't always agree about other reviews. Each to their own is my philosophy.
A 5+ Stars = Give it a chance you might be surprised.
