Acter who has to overcome very bad odds after an accident that leaves her in a wheelchair though it takes a while to figure out what that accident was There s always interesting twist to the story characters who are not who they say they are or characters who we had no idea about The dream aspects were really interesting as well and the action was done fantastically in such a compelling way that I read it from beginning to end almost without pause in five hours Everything that went into the story was compelling and the secrets that Sharpes Trafalgar get revealed were ones that made me want to turn the pages faster to keep reading but slow down at the same time to savor what s happening at the same time Weet the sense that not all is as it seems from the beginning but we discover things with Ari little by little as she finds out about the people who surround her and where she comes from Damia and Sasha are characters who stood out even when they weren t in the scenes I was always waiting for them to show back up because they interested me uite a lot by the time the story began to pick upWhat I didn t liked I didn t feel like in the beginning I clicked with the book I was rather confused by what s happening why the people had such strange names and why a Punished guy was called Sasha Seriously for several pages I though Sasha was airl because I didn t know his actual name which only His To Protect gets mentioned once and it threw me for a loop for uite a while since I thought the masculine pronoun was a typo or there was another character who was auy who s name I missed I would have liked to know his actual name earlier it would have helped Damia was too run of the mill bad I wanted a better reason for her to be angry with Ari than the ones iven The POV also switched unexpectedly while I was reading and it would throw me off initially but I learned to just o with it after a bitOverall Review I loved this book and thought I read Victoria Escober s book Peerless first and was blown away by everything in that book I knew I had to bring my expectations lower since this was the author s first book I m Babys First Christmas (Christmas Is For Kids) (Christmas Is For Kids) (Harlequin American Romances, 754) glad I did because it allowed this book to blow me away as well and even though I didn t love the beginning of this book I loved the rest of the book and I m still loving this authors writing Seriously the author s writing is fantastic and her stories are amazing With characters who surprise twist that you don t see coming and an amazing plot this book is something everyone should read if they canet into it The ending is explosive and parts of this book can leave you with some feels especially during the final battleRecommend Highly This book is wonderfully written with a plot that can and will leave you wanting when you reach the end It took me a few pages to Ups, Kita Sudah Menikah? get into this story andet the feel for it but once I did and it really didn t take but a few pages I was completely drawn inThanks to an accident Ari is bound to a wheelchair Part of me did think oh it s that type of story but it wasn t about how someone overcomes such obstacles Rather the author does a terrific job blending this fact into the story so that it felt natural and didn t over power the main plot It simply supported the rest of the storyThe plot itself is intricate lots of lies and mysteries to work through and well composed Although action is often present there are a few calmer periods which I did breeze through Ari s thoughts are always clear and it s easy to understand why she reacts the way she does Despite all the lies around her she manages to stay fairly level headed and doesn t become bitter something which really makes her likableOf course she has a hero at her side and he s amazing as heroes should be The romance between them is sweet definitely not hurried and Catwoman grows out of a long friendship Simply said enjoyableSummed up I really enjoyed this The fairly complicated plot pulls in as much as the wonderful characters I read this in one sitting and couldn t wait toet my hands on book 2I received a free book in exchange for an honest review.
