Fallen (Billionaires of Manhattan Book 1) by [Grace, Natasha]

Genre: Romance

I do like a romance with some luxury in it, the kind that comes from unimaginable wealth. Real escapism. I enjoyed this story but wasn’t riveted to the page though, it didn’t have that must-keep-reading feel.

I was a bit puzzled by Sam’s quick recovery from Jason’s death. Yes, she finds out he’s been cheating on her, possibly for most of their marriage but she was so in love, so devoted and it was as if that just switched off.
I did like the times she was looking back at events, at how and why she’d changed, and seeing that Jason did have quite a pervasive influence over her, but it was so carefully done she didn’t actually notice how much she had changed, had left behind things, habits, people he didn’t like or approve of.
Luke, he was one of the truly good guys, and he’d been carrying a torch for Sam for so long. I did wonder though why he was so close with Jason when they didn’t seem to have anything in common, and he knows about the constant cheating.

I wanted to shake the pair of them at times, Samantha wondering if Luke really wants her, Luke wondering if Sam really wants him….it became a bit frustrating.
When they did get together they were perfect and the heat was sizzling and well done. Sometimes that part gets so OTT it overtakes the story and I hate that, but here it fits perfectly.

Of course running a billion dollar company isn’t easy and with the recent changes they all need to be on their toes, and I did like that snippet of business insights we got.

Inevitably there was The Crash, the bit where the romance goes sour and I felt that was pretty weak, it didn’t really add up for me, didn’t feel genuine. I like some real depth to a story, some top highs and lows I can wallow in for a bit and I felt that for much of this story it was just mid-line. Perfect for others, just not for me.

Stars: Three, a decent read and one many will love, but a little short on drama and depth 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 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.
