Overview

Sarah Langham’s life was the epitome of normal until her dad slept with another woman when she was sixteen. It ripped her family apart.

Twenty-two-year-old Sarah has it together, though.

Waiting at the train station to go home from her first day of her first proper job out of university, she spots a man.

He is an enigma to her. She’s drawn to him, with his square jaw; buzz of hair; and his tall, solid frame, seen under the contours of his business suit. And he’s been looking at her, too. Fate pulls them together that night on a whirlwind date, exceeding anything Sarah’s experienced before. He’s even more into her than she’s into him. Finally, she wants to trust a guy for the first time since she was sixteen.

But then they discover something.

Something that meant they were never two strangers at a train station.

And it threatens to tear their future apart before it, really, ever begins.

    I was so glad I only paid 99 cents for this book. It was poorly written, disjointed and very difficult to read. I wish all these copy cat writers would go back to the drawing board and think up something original. Then take a writing class and really work at it before publishing a book and charging actual money for it. Many times while reading I felt like a page was missing because the flow of the story was so stilted. I have to admit that I kept reading until the end, hoping it would get better. It didn't.

    *ARC received in exchange for an honest review* First of all, I

    *ARC received in exchange for an honest review*
    First of all, I have to thank Rebecca Berto for giving me the opportunity of reading her book, Entwine;
    I must say, I really enjoyed it. I wanted to read it since the first day I’ve heard of it. For me is a 4 stars book.
    I utterly loved it, the style, and the characters; I could feel Sarah’s insecurities like being my own ones.
    Even though the story is told in a 3rd POV, one can feel the connection with the characters...in this case, with Sarah,
    as being the only POV we can know from.
    I really liked the connection between past and present; it was another way of “entwining” the story and the characters.


    So, we meet Sarah and Malik: they have a complicated relationship, I’d say.
    I really don’t want to give much information up, so you’ll need to read the book to find out why.
    But when I discovered who Malik was, I just couldn’t believe it; I was screaming at my kindle like a freaking idiot.

     
    Sarah has trust issues because she discovered at the age of sixteen that her father cheated on her mother with a mysterious woman
    (who will be connected further in the storyline). So when she meets Malik, she in a turmoil. Their meeting is intense, deep...now
    I’m having problems because I want to have a similar encounter in my life, LOL.


    The climax of the story was perfect, just as the end. I’m just hoping that the next book will be about them because the epilogue was
    off to me (way too short). That’s the only reason I gave the book four stars and not five. I really WANT to know more about Sarah and
    Malik, what will happen to them, how they story would go on?


    One more thing I want to add to my review: I LOVED THE COVER OF THE BOOK. I’m guessing the tattoos are an allegoric symbol
    of the title (if it is, it’s just perfect).

    Thanks again Rebbeca! UTTERLY RECOMMENDED.

    My Thoughts: The mysteriousness of this one led me to requestin

    My Thoughts:

    The mysteriousness of this one led me to requesting it. It seemed like it would be one of those easy to read yet deeper kind of novels. And it was a lot like that.

    When Sarah and Malik meet, you can feel the same pull they do. So as things develop for them, you're invested in their relationship despite how fast it happens. You find out early on what connects them, and when it's discovered, that's when it gets interesting. It wasn't what I was expecting before picking it up, but as I was reading, I had a feeling this was where it was leading. It does really add to the intensity of the story, although there were times I wasn't feeling it, especially when some of the discovery leads to certain events happening. While I did get a little frustrated, I was still very interested in finding out what happens next for Sarah and Malik, and everyone else.

    Entwine turned out to be as intriguing as the synopsis made it sound. The romance between Sarah and Malik sizzles, and you're rooting for them to press on through the troubles. Rebecca Berto is very good at creating a story line that catches you and doesn't let go. I look forward to checking out other novels of hers!

    My Rating: Very Good

    Entwine is a contemporary romance that takes place in Australia.

    Entwine is a contemporary romance that takes place in Australia.  Sarah is 22 years old and has just finished college and has gotten her first real job as a junior editor.  While at the train station on her way home a very beautiful man catches her eye, and she catches his in return.  One thing leads to another and they wind up spending the evening together.  Malik is a totally hottie, but he is older than Sarah, and she feels he is obviously out of her league.  Sarah has a lot of emotional issues that stem from something that occurred with her family when she was a teenager.  Malik has his own baggage he has had to deal with also.  As their paths and lives entwine together like a vine, they find out something that could destroy any chance they have together, but they must decide if that revelation and how they deal with it will cut their relationship off at the roots, or if what they have with each other is worth holding on to.

    The story is told from Sarah's point of view from a then and now perspective, relating to what is going on present day, and what happened in her teenage through university years with her family and past relationships, and also how things tie into what is going on today.  While the story itself has a good premise, I personally wasn't really crazy about Sarah, or Malik for that matter.  Their relationship was an insta-love type of relationship and while the chemistry was definitely their and the romance hot, it just seemed too serious too soon and a little too unrealistic for me.  The things that occur and the secrets that are revealed are definitely interesting, but the story and the relationship just wasn't something that captured my attention or heart, and Sarah went from being what Malik referred to as mature beyond her age to a needy stalker mode and then back again.  Malik was also a little to unrealistically devoted, but when a situation arose that tested that, even though it may have been out of his control, he did something that just didn't add up to what he was professing, though he does redeem himself.  As the story unfolded, they deal with some dramatic issues as they attempt to work through things.  It does end pretty well, however. 

    I've read and enjoyed a few of Rebecca's books in the past and she is definitely a good writer.  While Entwined was a pretty good romance, it just didn't blow me away.  I don't have a problem with insta-love stories in general, but my lack of ability to really like or connect with the characters and the unrealistic feel of the intensity of the relationship left me a bit underwhelmed with the novel, though I didn't dislike it.  It just left me feeling a little blase, which of course is just a personal opinion.

    Sarah Langham has lived her life since she was 16 not trusting m

    Sarah Langham has lived her life since she was 16 not trusting men because she has the misfortune of walking in on her father having an affair. She's only had one serious relationship but even that ended badly. Heading home from her first day at her first "adult" job, Sarah meets Malik Fawnheart. Instantly attracted to each other, the two have their first date that night. But unbeknownst to the two, they have a shared past that neither could have seen coming.

    I really enjoyed this book. Some parts were a bit difficult to read but not for the slang or the story itself. I'm not sure if it's because it's Australian but the style was just something I'm not quite used to. However, it didn't take anything away from the enjoyment.

    Sarah is an everyday kind of heroine that I think a lot of people can see themselves in. She's young and has her own baggage. I could definitely relate to her parents separation for sure which helped me care about the character that much more. And the same with Malik. There were things about him that I just adored that I think people can relate too. What really drew me in was their age difference though. My husband and I are 13 years apart so it was funny and cute to see something like that in a book. 

    I'm not really sure how I feel about the "twist" to be honest. I know it was there to create drama but I think there's more that could have filled that role- like their age difference. Sarah went into that a little and then nothing else was said about it. 

    And as a final note, love the book cover. Seriously, love it. But, I don't think it actually has much to do with the book.

    *I was given an ARC by the author in exchange for an honest review.
