A blog dedicated to reviewing and promoting the books I love.
*I received an eARC from the author in exchange of an honest review.
I was going into this book mentally prepared to face an a**hole of epic proportions that would somewhat evolve around 60% into the storyline so he could have a chance at finding Mrs. Forever. I can say I haven't been more wrong in my life and I'm very grateful for that.
Ace turned out to be a very gentle, sweet and charismatic guy. His douche phase only lasted as far as the third chapter. After that was over, there was witty conversations and amazing getaways with his crush. There was also a bit of drama towards the end, but you'll live.
Elizabeth was cute and could be very headstrong in some situations, but didn't have a backbone. I still don't think she has one, even with the ending. I hated that she just sat there and took what Jack was telling her to do. I do understand that the situation got resolved, but I would have liked it better if it wasn't electronically. What happened to the satisfaction of looking into someone's eyes and denying them what they so desperately want?
I enjoyed this novel very much. I can't wait for the next book in this series to release. I have an inkling of who the second book is going to be about and I'm very curious about what's going to happen next.
My Favorite Quotes:
"This ain't no fairy tale. It was never meant to be. Prince Charming is really a nightmare."
"Love is an emotion that runs deep. It can warm a person at night or freeze them to the core. Love can be kind or it can be destructive."
"People often say money can't buy happiness, and believe me when I say that's true. Happiness was something that came from within."
