This will most likely contain spoilers, so if that isn t your thing, feel free to ignore this review entirely.I don t even know where to start To be honest, I m baffled by the amount of reviews that rave about how good this book is.I mean, I just I can t.But to each their own, as they say The editing well, this book could use a good editor And that s to say nothing about the writing itself, which was bland, pedestrian, and long winded.Jesse I typically enjoy reading books with alpha male charact [...]

  14. It was with no small amount of trepidation that I embarked upon this novel After reading hugely differing opinions on the hero and the writing in general in reviews, I was concerned that this story was going to wave all sorts of personal red flags for me, rake up painful memories and generally traumatise me Thankfully, this caution was most definitely misplaced as I very much enjoyed this book in fact, I loved every second.It s the story of interior designer Ava, a girl about town, in London She [...]
