Southbound Surrender. Raen Smith
Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
Sometimes you read a book description, flick through sample and think it fits what you want but…it doesn’t 😦 That’s how Southbound Surrender was for me. Its well written, decent plots and no big loopholes but – it just didn’t get my attention. I read through it as it was a review book. If it hadn’t been I’d not have continued, but I found that really I wasn’t that bothered what happened to the characters, and whether they finally found their way back together. I just found the journey rather..tedious. There were a few light, dramatic moments and of course a secret to be revealed, but I really wasn’t invested in the outcome. A combination of both characters that I didn’t love – they were OK, not horrible or anything, but for me I need to really want them to be together, to get invested and carried along by their emotions, and that the plot just wasn’t working for me.
I enjoy second chance romances, but somehow this one just didn’t float my boat so to speak. That’s life, we don’t love everything we read and just because its not one for me doesn’t mean you wont like it. As I said the book itself is perfectly well written and I’m sure will have lots of five star followers, its just a personal thing that for me it wasn’t right. It’s reasonably priced at £1.87 for 308 pages.
Stars: two and a half, just a good story that didn’t work for me.
