I have read several books by K.L, and loved them. This one I couldn't even finish. I love a good insta-love, OTP alpha, rescue the damsel in distress book every now and then, so the complaints of some of the other low reviews did not bother me. But it turns out I must leave the same rating, but for very different reasons. The real problems in this book, for me, were the multiple plot caverns, not holes; the total incredulity of most of the charactets and plot points, even for a suspend belief insta-love story; and an overall inability to get into the story. I so very much wish this were a different review. Please don't write off other K.L. Donn books, just skip this one.
Seeing that there was not reviews on BN I looked up some reviews and the comments were great. So, I decided to take a chance. Boy was that a bad move. Within the first few pages he knew she was the one, the mother knew they were meant to be, and the girl was infatuated. Let's not forget the major age gap!! This girl had no experience with boys, was emotionally abused, and scared of her own shadow. But this man comes to her house the very next day after meeting her, screaming her name, running into her house, grabs and kisses her. Don't worry though, she's not scared at all. I'm sorry but nothing in this book is realistic. And it is 100% cheesy answer sappy!
So once again, an amazing and emotional ride with characters that are amazing! I really felt everything the female character was going through and loved how the male character was so in tune with her. Always a pleasure to spend time in a KL Donn story and can't wait for the brothers stories (and the surprise too).
**4.5 stars** I got all the feels from this book for sure! I completely empathized with the heroine Sophia. She was just totally beaten down by life and had quite low self-esteem. However I loved how Nox saw her, knew she was it for him and didn't let anything stand in his way of winning her - even her! A truly lovely love story! Don't hesitate - highly recommend. Can't wait for the other stories in this series... Safe read.
