I saw a lot of potential in this book, both in its plot and characters. However, I couldn't overlook some issues that distracted me and ultimately led me to a rating of 3 stars. Although I prefer to read standalone stories, the humongous cliffhanger didn't make me knock off any stars. I did so because of the head-hopping, typos, and punctuation issues. On the other hand, I'm pretty sure that an editor and a proofreader would turn Exchange of Power into an excellent book. That kind of help would make the reading experience smoother.
Like I said, the story has a lot of potential. The plot is engaging, the male characters are swoon-worthy, and the leading female is strong. As a writer, I know all too well how hard a profession this is, so I don't intend on putting down a fellow author with this review. On the contrary, it's a suggestion aiming to help make this series a great one.
Because my main writing genre is erotic romances, I tend to leave the sex scenes for last, when reviewing books. I'd place the bedroom action on a heat level of three, in a scale of 0 to 5, which means to say it picks up one's interest and puts a smile on one's face without getting to that mind-blowing state.
Nick and Hannah's love had been beautiful and timeless.
Hannah's grief became suffocating.
Nick's lies became unbearable.
His betrayal, unforgivable.
Can Hannah survive the emotional wreckage, and forge a new life and possibly a new love?
Can Jared be her saving grave?
When an unknown assailant brings something worse than death and destruction, Hannah is faced with a choice she never dreamed of. This epic romantic suspense will keep you wondering who truly holds the power.
Book One in the Power Duet please note it will end on a cliffhanger.
