What can I say... pretty amazing! Well most of it.
I was excited for this one to be released. I bought it as soon as I woke up, and started reading the first chance I had. I've been looking forward to this one since I finished Bared to You in August.
It did take me a little bit to get into it. I just wasn't feeling it - and was making a lot of connections with Fifty Shades of Grey, (and Fifty Shames), both of which I was trying REALLY hard not to do. Especially with Fifty Shames. But eventually, at one point, it just sucked me in, and I was hooked. I also read it on my Kobo Vox, which has something called 'pulse' which allows you to comment on individual pages (or the book as a whole) and see what others think. I must admit, I made a few comments all throughout the book - both on things I liked, and things I didn't like.
I didn't like the fact that her period was brought up SO MUCH, especially in the first half of the book. I found it overkill. And this is probably one area that I was drawing similarities from (of the many, they are pretty in your face!) But I felt it was way way to much attention to it. Yes, and I am female. And yes, I do understand their purpose, value, and inconvience, but it wasn't needed that much. I honestly was half expected the "surprise, we're having a baby' routine, and I wasn't fond of that idea. (and no, I didn't read the synopsis of this book before I read it... I find I am reading them less and less,and just reading the book instead, for whatever reason I have, the cover, the review, another person - and to be honest, I still haven't read it. I didn't like the level of stress between the characters, all the time. I found that it too tense, and in most situation, they'd of seperated... kind of took away from the reality of the book in a real life situation. But, at the same token, it is fiction, and a romance, and wow!
I loved the ending. I loved that neither Gideon or her digging got to the bottom of it, but that a good-hearted person told her. While it would have been very interesting to see how she would eventually have figured it out - or Gideon breaking down and telling her (which, admit it, isn't his style), I was glad with the way it was done. I also loved the closure that this route allowed things to take. Now I am very curious to see what happens in book four Entwined With You. (due out Dec 31, 2012)
