Release Date: July 2015
At 24 years old, Holly Scallanger has the perfect life. Everything a girl could want; a beautiful man, a stunning home, as well as being in the midst of preparing for the wedding of her dreams. This all vanishes the night she catches her fiancé, Brandon Morgan, in bed with her worst nightmare, Donna Sinclair, just a week before Holly is set to walk down the aisle.
Attempting to recover from his betrayal, Holly swears off the affections of men in order to pick up the pieces of her crumbling life. Unfortunately, meeting Jake 'Hooligan' Peters is not part of her plan. The tall, dark-haired and handsome as hell med student, sweeps Holly away from the pain of her past and reveals to her the bright future that lies ahead. That is, until she falls pregnant just as Jake begins his internship at P&E; his family's hospital.
Quote of the book ~ "miracles do happen. But, there are times when they don't. Where the latter is concerned, one has to be strong enough to let go."
I love this author and have reviewed many of her books. I was interested to see how she would do in this new genre and I wasn't sure what I would say about this book while I was reading it.
Honesty has always been key to me so I will have to say that the book started out too slow, too sweet, too predictable and almost boring. I put it down quite a few times and finally out of respect to the author decided to finish reading it.
Bam, it happened I saw the writing style that grabbed my interest at about chapter 23. Now I was knee deep in the book and the pages started to develop into a story that would grab a readers interest. It became real and believable. I cried, screamed with frustration and disappointment and finally really got angry with Jake, his family and controlling people. All these emotions created a dramatic ending to this book and I look forward to reading the second book of this series.
Because of the slow start I would of given it a 3 but for the excellent turn around ending I give it a 4.
I was gifted an ARC in exchange for an honest opinion via Fire Quill Publishing.
Isabella White was born and raised in South Africa, where she still lives with her husband and two beautiful little girls. She always knew she was going to be a writer, but it only started to really happen about four years ago. In her free time―if she gets any because moms don’t really have free time―she loves to spend it with friends, whether it’s a girls night out, or just watching a movie. She’s a very chilled person. Her writing career started with Firebolt, book one in the Dragonian series under the pen name of Adrienne Woods. Her other series, Dream Casters, will be released mid 2015. She also writes in different genres, You and Me 4Ever has a total of 3 novels. More to come in the Pregnancy Diaries soon. And then, she has a paranormal series by the name of the Aswang series, which will consist of about ten novels. And if that wasn’t enough, there is another series, Guardians of Monsters, which will be released in 2016. Both novels are written under another pen name called Kristen Ping.
