    Didn t Hate It, But Didn t Love It EitherI m somewhat disappointed in this story The blurb was promising and I read many other reviews that were promising So, I m probably in the minority here It just fell flat for me It wasn t horrible, but I probably won t remember the names of the characters tomorrow It just didn t make much of an impression on me, much to my disappointment.When I read that this was a story about a crazy drug lord that kidnaps a young woman he s been obsessed with for ye Didn t Hate It, But Didn t Love It EitherI m somewhat disappointed in this story The blurb was promising and I read many other reviews that were promising So, I m probably in the minority here It just fell flat for me It wasn t horrible, but I probably won t remember the names of the characters tomorrow It just didn t make much of an impression on me, much to my disappointment.When I read that this was a story about a crazy drug lord that kidnaps a young woman he s been obsessed with for years, I thought it was sure to be a favorite After all, a story with all of those qualities has got to be a dark, mess with your head, suspenseful page turner Right Not quite.This story was tame, bordering on boring Most of the emotions and responses seemed almost force fed It was like somebody held up a cue card that said be scared now or now they re in love , and it just was, not because I actually felt scared, but because I was being told that was the reaction I should have A great story elicits the emotions, based upon the content of the story as it plays out I just didn t feel that with this story at all For example, the only thing that made Roman, the super scary drug lord, scary was the repeated comments about how dangerous he was This was largely unsupported by the actual events within the story Yes, he did a few dangerous, crazy things, but nothing that made him rise to the level of a villainous drug lord that would incite a great deal of fear in my mind Yet, the reader is constantly told in the dialogue how wicked this man was.From the beginning, I struggled to connect with the characters Penelope seemed nice and so did Tag I just didn t feel particularly drawn to either of them.All in all, it was okay I didn t hate it or love it It wasn t a stand out for me either way

    Complimentary copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review This book is in no way dark I read a lot of dark reads and this is a sweet romantic suspense if I ever saw one The writing style kept me engaged but just not my type of book Tag was a swoon worthy MC but tough guy I don t think so Overall this was an ok read for me.

    3 this is not what I expected stars This book was mentioned as being a dark read, so to be fair I will say while the lady in our story is kidnapped and almost raped, this book to me is NOT a dark read There is a lotfluff to this story and while there is a constant suspense factor that keeps you on the hook and wanting to know what the kidnappers motives are, there is also a lot of repetitive scenes.Penny finds herself kidnapped after heading outside from a club that she was dancing at wi 3 this is not what I expected stars This book was mentioned as being a dark read, so to be fair I will say while the lady in our story is kidnapped and almost raped, this book to me is NOT a dark read There is a lotfluff to this story and while there is a constant suspense factor that keeps you on the hook and wanting to know what the kidnappers motives are, there is also a lot of repetitive scenes.Penny finds herself kidnapped after heading outside from a club that she was dancing at with a guy she just met, she finds herself taken from there and wakes in a locked room with a small window We find Penny on a yacht with only one person to watch her, the bald and sexy Tag Tag is not what you would expect from a kidnapper, he is sweet and promises not to hurt Penny and cares for her throughout There are a lot of unanswered questions that slowly get pieced together but it doesn t happen until the end I wish it would have been tied up sooner with some hints of things along the way Penny is very childish and I found myself not drawn to her at all, but Tag is very likeable and makes up for it The book does have some predictable parts to it, but its a quick read that I liked I didn t love it but I didn t hate it I think that if this book with the dark romance is was made out to be this could have been something really sinfully sweet I would like to have seen Tag s character in another context or a littlegritty But the author still gets you on the hook with the opening scene and makes you want to see it through to the end This book was provided generously by the author for the GReat buddy read promo group Thanks Laura
