sweet and uncomplicated but too simple for me.

The Consequences of That Night Jennie Lucas.
Review from Jeannie Zelos Book Reviews
I love romance, usually look for more complex novels but sometimes an uncomplicated one to relax with is just what I want. That's what I thought this would be. Unfortunately it was just a little too simple and uncomplicated for me, no real highs and lows, just a sweet, slightly sickly romance. :( I had the impression Emma would be a strong character but found her to be bot so, treating Cesare as if he were God at times. She did show some backbone standing up to him, but even then those sections didn't really have the drama and action I expected...and Cesare - one minute autocratic, playboy-ish guy, the next sweet and loving. There wasn't anything I really felt strongly about in this novel, neither good nor bad - it just seemed one of those quickly read and easily forgotten..there was great potential and the writing was good, its just that the story and characters were too bland for me. Ah well, it did at least have the happy ending I love!
Readers who want sweet and uncomplicated though may well enjoy this more than me, as ever we all want different things.
Stars: three, I didn't dislike the novel, just didn't really particularly enjoy I either.
