True Colours, Elly Redding

True Colours,  Elly Redding

True Colours by [Redding, Elly]

Genre: General Fiction (adult), Romance

I liked the sound of this, I love a second chance romance so dived in eagerly but it wasn’t a great fit for me. Amazon describes it as 224 pages but its just under 2600K kindle locations and felt far shorter than 224 pages. Those usually come out about 4K+. I think that brevity is one reason it didn’t work for me, it seemed as if they were enemies one moment lovers the next with no real build up. It felt quite disjointed in that one moment I was reading about the present and then we were back in the past and it wasn’t always obvious which was which. I’m a fan of past and present sides to a story, but they need clear definition.
I didn’t understand why Kate wouldn’t listen to Saul either time, why she just looked at ran. That’s always (almost) going to be most folks’ reaction but once emotions cool we usually want to know the how and the why. It seemed weird that Kate didn’t. Then there’s the long gap, and why is Saul still in love. Why not try harder earlier to get her to listen. Of course this story wouldn’t exist then but for me I needed some kind of explanation, some reasons for these gaps.
As ever though this is just how I feel and of course its a perfect read for others, and may be exactly what you want. Reading taste is very subjective.

Stars:Two, one of those that looked a great fit for me but proved not to be 😦

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.
