Tamsen Parker recommended “A Love Thing” anthology to me, and this book was apart of it – so I figured it was only right to leave a small review of this book on it’s own page as well as the anthology when I finish that book.
My first introduction to this book is the nurse Autumn (our main character) who’s working part time at the hospital (and isn’t getting paid well, apparently) and part time at a gentleman’s club.
The first chapter of this book made me think I wasn’t going to like it – I’ve never really been into the club scene for any books. Then when Autumn moves away and the romance starts – wow! I was obsessed! I was hooked instantly, but then as the relationship between Kenton and Autumn continued, I started feeling… iffy.
My only issue is that I think the relationship between Kenton and Autumn is weird – it’s forceful, sometimes a little abusive in my eyes, and… interesting? I like the plot of the book, but the relationship is where I feel off. If there relationship wasn’t so brutal, I’d probably be insanely obsessed with this novel. It might be because I’ve had my own really bad relationships so their relationship gives me bad vibes… Despite that, I still liked the book. I still want to continue reading the series, but the book doesn’t match my typical read.
That being said, Aurora Rose Reynolds is incredibly talented and her writing style is fantastic. I really enjoyed her writing since it flows smoothly and keeps you hooked at every turn. The “Assumptions” title and the assumptions in the story is a really nice twist too! Don’t judge a book by it’s cover, clearly!
The finale of the book is the best part for me. I love when a story can be tied together, and Aurora did it just perfectly. Six out of five stars for the ending!
Overall, these books are clearly fantastic and are made for a certain audience, and I don’t think I’m it. I still really recommend this book if you like the possessive side of romances since Aurora is one talented author. Just because I didn’t enjoy it to it’s full capacity doesn’t mean you won’t love it too!
Three out of five stars.
