The Virgin. Redemption. J. Dallas

Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.

Well, book one, Revenge, left me with so many questions; I wanted the answers that I hoped this book would bring. It did give me some answers, but to be honest it wasn’t the novel I was expecting and hoping for. What it gives almost is whats happening in the future just after book one ends ( a couple of months after I think…) but it’s full of references to the past, and its via these glimpses that we get the answers we need. Its just that after all the build-up – all the hype and expectation I felt…underwhelmed. It simply wasn’t a story and romance that gripped me. I didn’t feel “the love” between Drake and Shannon, and the answers to all those dropped hints and angst from book one were just …meh…didn’t work for me.

I think if the two books had been merged, maybe it would have worked better for me, there’s potential there but the emotion and drama as it is was just lacking too much for me. I still needed much more character personality – the parts which show us what someone is really like, not just the glossy outer appearance but the inner, what they feel, what drives them, all the things that make a person unique. Drake and Shannon just felt very generic to me.

Still – as always – I’m just one person, and everyone needs different things from their reading. This is just how I felt – you may well feel very different. It’s priced at £1.26 for 70 pages – as before I think this length just doesn’t work for some books, and this was just too short to give reader any kind of real insight into the characters, their emotions and stories.

Stars: two. Just not one that worked for me.

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.
