A Moment of Weakness, Brooklyn Skye

A Moment of Weakness,  Brooklyn Skye

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews

Genre:  Romance,

I usually like Brazen reads and this sounded fun but…sadly it was a fail for me.

I didn’t like either of the main leads, Micah was a surly, arrogant individual and Laurel was just a pushover. Given Micah wants the best for his daughter, and Laurel supposedly needs the job and wants to do her best, they didn’t act that way. I didn’t feel any connection between them except lust which they both gave way to far too soon IMO.

Then the fact it was for the summer only – what was going to happen after that?  Who’d be looking after his daughter? He has to leave for his second “job” at late hours and short notice very often, and its a dangerous one where he could end in hospital or worse. That’s not what a caring father does….When you’ve kids you have to plan for every eventuality especially if you don’t have other close family to help. The ending, the scenes at the school just wouldn’t/couldn’t happen. Wouldn’t be allowed in these security conscious days. I know its fiction and you can stretch reality but this was a step too far for me.

It just didn’t work for me. I struggled with it, picking it up, putting it aside, trying again and again to get a feel for the characters and the story but I never did. Some you win some you lose and this was a lose for me. As always though everyone likes different things and there will be readers who love this story – its all very personal and its not a bad book, just one that doesn’t work for me.

Stars: Sorry, just a two – others will love it, five star it and that’s great for them but for me this story just didn’t make it.
