So here are my thoughts on “Oliver” by FG Adams. So first things first – I made a slight mistake when I choose the book, because I did not pay attention (Or it wasn’t obvious at that time) that this book was part of a series. So hence one of my problems with the story.

 

But let me start at the beginning. I loved the Blurb and I loved the writing of the author. As it was my first book by this author I need to mention that especially. The part coming now is based on assumptions.

So treat this info carefully.

 

I assume because of the writing style that previous books already had information’s on Oliver in them. So if you were following the series his character should be (well?) known to you.

 

The same probably goes for Fallyn Blackwood.

 

So if I come from that angle than this book has a great storyline and is probably well balanced in the “developing of romance” department.

 

BUT as it is – I only read this book and I had to wonder at times about the development of feelings between the leading characters.

 

Because even though the Blurb mentions that Oliver is “hunting” Fallyn for a longer time he does not really know her so that can not count. And by the amount of time he invested in this hunt it almost – could – border on obsession instead of love but the author really tries to steer the reader of that route.

 

Still – if I count the actual time only that Fallyn knows Oliver later – its really an Insta-Love which is amazing for someone in her “special” situation. And it is well known that I have a tiny problem with InstaLoves

 

So – when it comes to the writing, the blurb and the storyline this book is really good and will definitely not be my last by this author BUT in the romance department it feels a little to InstaLove – no matter from which angle I look at it.

 

But please judge for yourself when reading – because its def. worth the time …
