My Thoughts

First i should thank the folks at Netgalley for getting me a copy of this first intro to a new series.  I’m always looking for new material.  What we have here is a novella in a sense as the first of many installments of a series that i believe surrounds the wedding of a girl named Whitney.

In this first book, we are focused on Amaree who is a bridesmaid and she’s come to austin in celebration of the engagement party.  After asking who she’s being paired with to walk down the aisle, she learns that it’s her high school boyfriend Evan and that’s when she gets this twinge of excitement run through her.

Where we go over what i guess is a weekend in time is seeing how these two reconnect after 8 years and what their chemistry is like and potential for the future.  It’s a sweet notion to be honest, but that’s about where i can leave it.

I HATE when i don’t love a story or when a style of writing isn’t for me, and you guys all know me well enough by now that there are few books that i truly have issue with.  I think that the idea for the series is a sweet one and has so much potential, but the execution just wasn’t for me.  The writing is so overly descriptive and there are so many adjectives supporting just about every sentence that it’s distracting at times.  What could have been a really steamy and passionate book just fell a bit flat for me.  I’m so sad that I didn’t enjoy it, but please don’t keep yourselves from checking it out because we’re all a bit different in what we like.
