I know. The cover right? Sometimes I love these cheesy romances. This was kinda one of those times. This book was soooo slow.I mean, I liked the story, especially the slow simmer. Which would have been required due to the early content in this book but it was like watching paint dry in some parts. And the constant misunderstanding started to grate on my nerves. I received this book for free through my Kindle for Samsung app. (great app!)
I’m partial to historical romances and equally partial to rescuees falling for rescuers, which is obviously one of those stories. This was my first trip into Norah Hess’ work and also into this time frame. I would absolutely read more in this time frame but I don’t think I have the patience to get through another long descriptive book like this one right now.
It seemed each day was described and he timeline didn’t vary; i.e. flashbacks or others POV’s. It was very linear and there wasn’t much of a subplot or it was so predictable as to seem non-existent. Which caused me to take many breaks while reading this. It was also very predictable and while I do love those from time to time, this one kinda fell flat for me.
I think in the end the predictability of the book is what saved it for me. Since I knew how it was going to go, I finished it. And as I got through the second half the time seemed to pick up a bit too. Like I said I liked the story, it just took a while to get to the meat of it.
