Pieces Of Me, Jacquie Underdown

 

 

Genre:  Romance,

I liked the sound of this and is was a sweet novel, a good story but nothing that lifted it into a great one for me.

I liked Hannah, and admired her taking charge of herself after what had happened to her. that must have taken a lot of courage, and its something that happens to many, many people 😦 Bear was a great character too and I liked him. He’d been stuck in Mercy Island looking after his sister, and now finally was going to be able to move, to get away, to live his dreams.

I just didn’t feel the tension, the drama, the sizzle between Bear and Hannah I wanted though.  There were moments of course, but they felt very gentle, very subdued and seemed to be over soon. Then Bear, wanting to leave but faced with losing Hannah if he does of course. Its the stuff of romance, the choice, the do I or don’t I conundrum…and yet it didn’t feel like a big decision, I didn’t feel his confusion, or that Hannah would be devastated if he did go.

Its a decent, well written read, but for me I need angst, drama, tensions, and those were here but on a very muted level. There are readers who want exactly that though, so it’ll be a five star book for them, just not one for me.

Stars: Three, a good read but without the feelings of potential loss and dramatics I needed.

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 amazon.co.uk 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.
