Captivating and funny!
on 4 March 2018
I loved being taken on a roller coaster ride for the complex journey of Jasmine's developing self awareness and building trust in her longtime frenemie, Ivan.
There's a lot of emotional involvement for the reader with lots of laughter, a gasp of suspense then being bought near tears at the next moment! I loved the snark-talk between characters and had several laugh out loud moments!
As with some of Marianna's other beloved novels there's not a lot we learn about the male lead and his thoughts or motivations. True to form, Mariana's lead woman is a delight: a fiesty, gutsy and mouthy straight-talker who doesn't stand for bitchiness or drama.
The actual get-together of the couple comes suddenly and unexpectedly but it's a very satisfying HEA all the same.
I do like that unexpected stomach-flip of 'awww' when the characters take that first real step toward happiness!
