To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I feel like I am sitting on the fence while reviewing this book, I could jump on either side of liking it or maybe being disappointed in it.
My problem with the story was that I never once felt engaged by the characters. The writer gave plausible reasons for the personalities of both the hero and heroine yet I barely liked or cared about either.
I confess to skimming the book in parts, which attests to my lack of interest. The whole book was entirely predictable. The author did have a good, if hackneyed plot, but the character development didn't work for me. The hero was, well... a slow learner and just not that likable to me, he seem selfish, and amazingly self-centered. The heroine.....I don't know, can't really explain it,if she had died in childbirth and the hero had to grow up and move on once again, it might have made a better book.
After re-reading that last paragraph, I realize...nope, I didn't like this book. It was not awful, and for the price just barely ok for my personal tastes. I am the lone dissenter at the time I did this review and you of course must decide for yourself, just not a great read for me.
