Crave the Rose, Karen Kincy

Crave the Rose, Karen Kincy
Genre: Romance, New Adult.
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Its a strange book, I enjoyed parts but too much of it left me feeling “ What? Why? How? Who?” There just seemed to be long gaps and jumps, and too many unanswered questions. That’s a shame as overall it’s got such great potential.
I loved the spontaneity of their first meeting, loved that Bram had epilepsy but was trying to hide his fits – it’s nothing to be ashamed of course, but the wide ranging effects and prejudice people have make his reactions feel very genuine. One of the things in UK is that driving licence must be surrendered until a certain time fit free has passed. That’s tough, but of course safety matters – Bram though doesn’t want to lose his licence and that’s just one of the reasons.
The story really revolves around Cassia and Bram, with little interaction from others. I felt so sorry for Cass after she caught Spencer cheating but TBH she was a bit of a b itch to Bram. He seems to have been entranced with her right from the start, and arranges for her to come and work in the gardens of the place his family are renovating. Only problem is the gardens are slated for demolition….I found his about face on that hard to take, I needed more than just Cass wanting them to stay. His family – loved his dad, but his mum…wow – she was cold, artic cold. She seemed to see his epilepsy as something of an inconvenience to her, and never thinking of how Bram felt. She never seemed to take anything he said seriously – but then again if he’s prone to changing his mind as easily as he did re the gardens that’s not a surprise.
It all kind of wrapped up too neatly at the end for me, I love a HEA but most of the book felt like it was coasting so when things went right there were no deep and angsty lows to balance it.
.Stars: Three, its an ok read for me, potentially very good but it never seemed to reach that point for me.
