Sara Jane is a young naive girl who happens to catch the eye of the gorgeous Alexander Kingston. The son and aire to the Kingston fortune.
He's drawn to her beauty and her innocence. He needs to make her his.
But with secrets and lies between them will Sara ever know the real Alex.
This book was very intense and I was immediately swept along with how much Alexander and Sara Jane loved each other. There's is an epic romance.
Then when Sara learns Alex has been hiding secrets from her things may never be the same.
I swear that ending my nerves can't handle it. I may have screamed a lot.
Seriously WTF!!! How could it end like that.
What a cliffy to end all cliffys. Luckily I love them and I'm desperate for the next part. I can't bloody wait.
Once I got to about 50% it started to get interesting so I continued, parts of the story seemed quite rushed... but it was good, it kept me hanging on & I'm glad I finished it.
I'll probably read the second one, but not in any massive rush to do so.
Alexander Kingwood IV and Sara Jane Grayson have been together for three years, ever since her senior year of high school. She was a breath of fresh air, innocence and purity to him. He was a mystery and an adventure to her. Together, their love burns fiercely, making whatever obstacle they face worthwile.
But Alexander has been keeping secrets from Sara Jane, wanting to protect her from the darker corners of his mind and past. His mother’s death haunts him, his father’s possible involvement tormenting.
Sara Jane has long excused his secretive behavior, but is becoming more and more frustrated with it. Demanding to be included, Alexander eventually opens up more to her. This also means exposing her to danger, including his father.
There are regular flashbacks in this story, showing how they met and how their relationship progessed. I like that this wasn’t a ‘how do they meet’ story, but we meet them while they’re already established as a couple. This allows the author to show struggles further down the road, forcing both of them to reevaluate their relationship on several occasions.
Alexander is a troubled young man, older than his years, but still needing to learn a lot. He doesn’t think he’s good for Sara Jane, but selfishly holds onto her. I can sort of understand his feelings in this, but by leaving the ball in her court, he pushes her away, hurting her in the process. I like how Sara Jane doesn’t put up with this, repeating the mantra Alexander instilled in her. She is strong.
There is some action and violence at several points in the story, but it’s written in a way that adds to the story and character development. The ending of this book was nerve-wracking, making me eager to read part two, Savior, coming next month.
I'm numb, I'm struggling to say anything. That bloody cliffhanger ending, OMG, I need the next part - like right now!
The prologue brings you all in, leaves you breathless, certainly but thinking if how it might end up.
Blooming heck, I really enjoyed getting to know Alexander and Sara-Jane.
It was a book of 2 halves, the first half in my opinion was a bit of a slow burner, the second half has your adrenaline pushing through your veins.
The love, drama, angst, thrill, secrets and deceit you had it all, and are kept on the edge of your seat wanting to know what happens next without the book finishing too quickly, then to have a book hangover from the cliff hanger ending - oh boy!
During the first half, the sweet trusting, caring and ultra understanding Sara Jane Grayson blossoms, she really comes into herself, she was quite shy and reserved at first, and as we go through the story, she learns how to hold herself, how to stand up for herself, to be the person she was meant to be.
Alexander Kingwood, a bad guy on the surface, but like an onion all is revealed by each layer, as we learn more about him.
I have to admit I didn't care for him too much in the beginning, he came over as quite arrogant, very angry but with a fierce love for SJ.
He struggled with how much he loved her, how much he tried to push her away, by keeping lots of things from her, I respected him, more once he came clean and revealed everything to Sara Jane. They really were a well matched pair.
Alexanders father was a real piece of work, he knew his son was getting too close to the truth, although the curve ball was one heck of a humdinger, and I was not expecting his father to react in that way.
He was a vile man, who did not care for anyone but himself. It would be great to find out more about Alice, she deserves some light in her world.
Then we get Sara Jane the strong independent, amazing lady who finally found herself and knew where her future was and with whom, and I'm hoping it works out.
I loved Alexander's live for Sara Jane, she really is his world, and I hope they get to experience so much more goodness in their lives.
The next instalment needs to be here now! Is it August already.
