Trusting You. L.P. Dover.

Trusting You (Second Chances)


Trusting You. L.P. Dover.
I love romance with characters older than teens – though that teen agnst is good, sometimes it seems the market is dominated by them. So looked forward to this. Sadly, though its well written and the characters themselves likeable, the decisions they make – and the plots themselves – are in my opinion too simple, too juvenile to be believable.
I simply can’t see why Melissa went the route she did in keeping things from Brett, it would have been so easy to have just said “Brett, I’ve a problem/I need to tell you….” Of course we need some kind of secrets in order for there to be the big problems when all comes out, but this just wasn’t realistic enough for me. It’s not what common sense would say is the logical action. Then towards the end what happens…it was all too much, would anyone really agree to do what Brett and Melissa did, however good the reason? So the believability factor affected how I veiwed the whole suspense angle too. There were parts I could go along with, and as I said the novel is very well written. It’s just the plot and the way the characters acted that didn’t work for me. The sex scenes were excellent, fitted the characters really well, and provided just the right amount of steam.
Priced at £1.93 for 231 pages is around average VFM for the genre, and if you can suspend your belief in the way I couldn’t its one you may enjoy. Just not one for me.

Stars: 2.5, good wrting quality just let down by the storyline .

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
