4.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing Tale 31 March 2017
By R. Norman - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This was a very intriguing book, the story unfolds in a rather unusual manner and initially I wasn't sure whether I was going to enjoy it. Jasmine is a young lady from the Philippines now living in America and re-training to be a doctor. On her first day at her new job she gets lost and ends up at a place called The Bookstore, which isn't a bookstore at all, where she meets a masked stranger, a stranger who haunts her dreams. Despite visiting The Bookstore several times, Jasmine loses sight of this shadowy figure and decides to move on since wishing for him was not making it happen.

While this is going on in the background, she meets and falls for Stephen Gates, who just happens to live in the penthouse suite of her apartment block and unfortunately is suffering from a brain tumour. Although he loves her too and they begin a passionate affair, slowly everything unravels.

I struggled a bit with Jasmine's character she seemed quite independent and feisty, but then was easily manipulated by Stephen and the rest of his family - of whom there are a LOT and who are extremely wealthy. Some of the brothers consider Jasmine a gold digger and make no bones about their opinion - their callous assumptions, unfounded and downright hurtful, leaving Jasmine confused and uncertain. To add to the mix, it turns out Stephen has a twin, who Jasmine meets under tragic circumstances, little realising that they have already spoken, but when and how will shock her. No, I won't give the plot away - you have to read it.

he supporting cast were well written and some deserve their own stories - I'd be interested to see whether this happens. The story ends but doesn't conclude, there are a few threads still dangling, so I hope AC Jade ties them off in a future novel.

This is a story of love and loss and second chances, of the tenuous nature of life and how happiness so can so easily be snatched away. It encourages the reader to grab life with both hands and dance like nobody's watching!

Overall story was enjoyable, although I did find some of the language and phraseology a bit awkward. I discovered, however, that The Foreigner is the author's debut novel and that English is her second language, which clarified it to some extent and I am in awe of authors who take that leap of faith to write in a language other than their own.

I was gifted a copy of The Foreigner and this is my unbiased review.

4.0 out of 5 stars I loved the rawness of the MC's-all of them 4 February 2017
By Modern mommy - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I received this book from eBook discovery for a voluntary, completely honest and non-incentivized review. This is my first read by this author and it won't be my last. I loved the rawness of the MC's-all of them. I appreciated the turmoil and emotions shared. I'm sincerely hoping Jade writes a follow up because the ending left me a bit lost and needy. That would be my only reason for not giving it a 5. I would have been happy with an epilogue...just saying.
4.0 out of 5 stars Very good book!!! 22 July 2017
By Amy Crull - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
So this was a new author and I didn't know what to expect. I must say it had makings of a good book. It had love, mystery and some sad times. I do love how the author brought the characters to life and obviously has done her homework on brain tumors. Jasmine is a character I liked. She's strong and determined. I mean she moved from the Philippines to Texas to fulfill her dream of being a Dr. It starts out by jasmine finding what she thought was a bookstore but turned out to be so much more. She meets a mystery man and has a connection. It was all for one night.. she soon meets Steven and has amazing relationship with him. He's bossy, demanding and very protective of Jasmine. It all looks good until it's not. This is when things gets weird or interesting, I'm not sure how to explain it. It was good book and I enjoyed reading it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Slow moving although reasonably well written 4 February 2017
By Margaret Watkins - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
A really sad story, The Foreigner didn't hold my interest. The cover is beautiful and leads one to expectations of the book, but I found it very slow moving although reasonably well written. I felt that Jasmine allowed herself to be pushed around by her circumstances, letting the men in her life make decisions for her, whilst the Gates brothers were egotistical and overbearing. I received this book for free from eBook Discovery. I voluntarily post this review. This is my honest review.
4.0 out of 5 stars Well balanced! 11 July 2017
By Anne Spencer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a new author to me. It was a good love story with a well balance of happiness and sadness. Jasmine was drive in her career and crossed the path of twin brothers. When the group is three someone is going to come up losing out. The bothers are handsome and driven as well. Jasmine downfall was letting the man in her life make decisions for her. She was an independent woman, but when she got around these brothers she seemed to loose a part of herself. You will enjoy reading this book, happy reading
