Real love is painful but worth it
26 December 2017
What I’ve particularly enjoyed about KM Golland’s Wild Nights series (Reveal being book 2), is that they are more than just romance novels, that are stories about human nature and the realities of love - not just loving another, but in the case of Em from Reveal, loving oneself.
All things considered the storyline in this book takes place over a relatively short time frame. This makes the case of insta-lust/love between Em and sexy stripper Brad, a little bit difficult to believe. Especially when you put it all in context with what occurs in the first book in the series Revue. Despite this, I loved Brad and Em together and their chemistry was definitely off the charts.
Em was a fabulous main character. Her imperfections, insecurities and secrets made her all the more authentic and someone I could relate to. It was sad that her depression stopped her from being honest with best friend Corinne and love interest Brad, but that is something true of people living with depression - it’s easier sometimes to hide things then deal with what people may think of you.
This was a solid four star read for most of the book, but it was the last couple of chapters that propelled it to five stars. I almost wished the drama and action that happened here had occurred a little earlier in the book so the subsequent fallout could have been explored a little more. But I loved how the book ended and felt satisfied with Em, Brad and their conclusion.
