The Return, A Second Chance Flower Shop Novel, Noelle Adams

The Return (Second Chance Flower Shop Book 1) by [Noelle Adams]

Genre: Romance,

For me this book was a well written story but just lacked any drama to make it what I enjoy reading. Most romances hit a spot about three quarters through where there’s a hiccup, things go wrong etc and then get resolved. This book though didn’t do that, there was a faint possibility that things might go wrong but it didn’t.
Ria and Jacob were both pleasant characters, but though there were some sensual scenes TBH I just didn’t feel that strong romance between them, certainly not a passion thats lasted all these years. I had a hard time believing Mia could just put all those years of hurt aside so easily, ignore how broken hearted she was just because Jacob is back now. Its as if he says “this is why….” and she’s all “oh, OK then” kiss kiss. I just wanted more, more drama, more tension, and a bigger reason for him leaving in the first place. I just didn’t see why he wouldn’t have told Ria why he was going.

Stars: Two and a half, I didn’t hate it, it just wasn’t a book I could really engage with. I’m a drama fan, essential for me in a romance. Not everyone loves it though, many like this kind of sweet, easy read better. Horses for courses.

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 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.
