FIVE WELL DESERVED STARS
Reviewed by Claire Rose on behalf of Kindle Friends Forever.
I asked a very good friend of mine about these books as I was unsure. She told me little about the novel without spoiling it for me and of course, when she asked me if I’d like to review it for KFF, I just jumped at the chance! I was so into the book, I read it in one day. Hungry for more, I dived straight into book two without putting it down for one minute. The author of this series has gained herself a big fan in less than forty-eight hours, so I will most certainly be one clicking all her books in the future.
Well, first we meet Brooke. Long black hair, thirty years old and living in England. After ending a ten year relationship, she decides to go to America to visit her best friend, Sam, who is gay and I might add, I loved to bits. While staying with him, Brooke slowly comes to terms with her life back home as she has not had the best childhood. Parents who raised her, simply ignored her, favouring her sibling more, and a romance that was going nowhere.
Dropping by Sam’s workplace, she gets this strange feeling that someone is watching her. When she turns around, huge black eyes are staring at her. Instant connection is there which goes straight to her soul. Robert’s fathomless eyes, his gorgeous black hair, and Italian looks astound her. Obviously she has no idea who he is or where he comes. He wants Brooke instantly and can feel the strong connection, too. The more we get to know Robert, the more we find he has this dark and dangerous side to him. A troubled past that he refuses to let anyone know about, or even get the slightest bit close to. There are only two people he trusts and loves and the three of them together are a close-knit family.
Throughout the novel we see Robert and Brooke fall for each other but it’s going to be a very big struggle. What they both go through had me holding my breath in some parts and making me a nervous wreck. I have no intention of spoiling this brilliant read for you, so won’t tell you any more. I highly recommend you read this book; it most definitely won’t disappoint. Furthermore, you won’t want to put the book down until the end. I rate this book five stars as the author more than deserves it. The writing is superb, the storyline has its twists and turns leaving me saying WOW when I finished the book.
