There were so many problems with this book. The book had awful flow, a really terrible editing job. New scenes in the middle of chapters, disjointed conversations which made following the story difficult. I often felt like I had missed something and found myself skipping back to reread to find I hadn't missed anything after all. It often felt like the author forgot to write something, conversations ending abruptly, bad continuity( you can't say someone is 22 in chapter 2 and make her 20 in the next chapter), characters would act but there was no inner monologue to explain their movement to the reader. But, by far the worst aspect of this book wasn't the poor flow and bad editing job, but the character Opal. I'm not sure she even qualifies as a character. She's a non enity. She has no personality or substance. Her entire life she is exactly the way her parents expect her to be and then she waits around for her husband to tell her who she's supposed to be. They are married for 2 years, she talks about craving indepencne from her parents, but spends 2 years cleaning the house, pining for her husband and reading erotica. Seriously? The author gives her no passions, no hobbies, no flaws. She never even buys her own clothes. She's pathetic. I found myself unable to root for such a shell of a person. When I finished this book all I really wanted was my money back.

Claiming His Wife by Sam Cresent is the third installment to Cresent's 'Unlikely Love' series and the first work that I've read from this author. Although I have yet to read the previous two in the series, I can say that this one can be a stand alone read as it still made sense to me when I read it. Opal has loved her brother's best friend Tony for as long as she can remember. However, there's a 17 year difference between them and Tony is not about to jeopardize his friendship with Opal's brother for his little sister no matter how much he wants her. However, he quickly changes his mind when Opal is forced by her parents to marry a man that she does not want to. To save her he steps up to the plate to wed her in order to get her away from her to-be husband and demanding parents. From there, these two wed and become husband and wife, but in name only. Tony keeps his distance & buries himself in work while Opal is tucked away in the house with no companionship. Tired of living this life, she pushes for a divorce but Tony refuses. He loves her, yet he is adamant on pushing her away because he does not want Opal to see that he is like his father, a monster. Overall, I enjoyed reading Claiming His Wife but there were some issues that I had. What I liked about this book was the storyline and plot. Furthermore, the characters were fairly well developed and the story was fairly well written; although there were a few grammatical and spelling errors. As characters, Opal and Tony were quite likeable but I had a few issues with them. Opal was young & a bit naive & I wished she had more of a backbone, but I was glad to see her grow and find her strength and independence in the end. As for Tony, I'm a little bit on the fence on if I like him as a hero. I liked that he was protective & loving of Opal. However, he was also a jerk sometimes, but I believe he redeemed himself in the end. In all, Claiming His Wife was a decent read. *Rating: 3.5/5 *STARS*
