New to me author. I have so far read all of the books in the series and have been excited about this one, but only a few chapters in I realized that this is my least favorite, more like hate, trope: love triangle.
Without giving out too much the heroine and hero have history from young age but never were together. Neither knows each others feelings for one another. now the heroine is engaged to another man, happily so until circumstances but she never breaks it off with him before she kind of dies things with the hero even if they may be part innocent. and that alone makes me gag, it’s unattractive to me and a huge turn off. I wanted to DNF the book right then.
I couldn’t enjoy any of the now happening because there was a mystery suspense theme which I love, but when the H&H were getting with one another, it wasn’t a good transition for me because of the 3rd party(s), so I ended up skipping a lot of pages to still read and then I gave up. It just is not sweet to me that a woman wears a engagement right even after “breaking things off” even though she had told him taking a break, but to wear the ring just because it’s easier than to answer questions from people, is unattractive to me. Then there is the hero’s ex problem, that also slept with the heroines’s ex fiancée. *cringe cringe cringe.* Then the final straw is when the hero came home after a shift that went wrong and the ex showed up at his house, the heroine and the ex did a oh he chose me shit, and the hero *gag* even had a thought of how it might have been fun to have both at the same time for that moment blah blah blah sorry but I just couldn’t finish it. For this being a small town sort of sweet with happy HEA this was not something I expected, and wouldn’t read any of the authors other books because that’s probably what most contain. It only got worse for me the longer I tried to read it, even writing this review made me cringe. Not for me and honestly I’m questioning the rest of the books in this series after this one. so disappointing because the first 3 were very amazing.
