Hinged by Char Sharp leaves me with a lot of mixed emotions. It is the second book in the “Soul Mate Rescued” and I have to admit I did not read the first book and this is also my first book by this author.
When I considered reading this book I was already having mixed feelings. The first time I read the Blurb I thought – that sounds good – then I started overthinking it and decided against it – only to come across it again thinking “OK lets do it before I overthink this again”.
The reason ? Obvious I have triggers when it comes to certain plots and “the other man” is one of them. I was not sure where this plot would lead me and that left me open for doubts.
Well my” as little as possible spoiler” policy does not allow me to elaborate but I can tell you that in the end it was not those doubts that left me with mixed emotions. It was more the way the storyline was pursued.
The author really has a great plot here at her hands but it felt to me like there were moments when she could have savored certain strings more. Because this story should have as much romance as there is suspense and with a plot like that certain things need to be made the most of.
There is more in here much more and especially in the beginning the romance part felt more “clinical” to me. I could not feel Cooper being in love I only HEARD that he was and Robins’ amnesia was … (not sure how to say something without saying something)
The suspense however is something the author really managed to transfer to the reader, the writing is well developed and well constructed.
I am pretty sure someone will be screaming at me but throughout the whole book something must have gone wrong with my attention span because my favorite character is Ram…
He was the most developed person in the book to me. For the sake of the storyline I am not about to disclose if he was the good, the bad or something in-between but I would like to hear more about him.
Not sure what the first book in the series was about, if Cooper appeared in there and if the reader would know more about him by reading that book. As it was I was thrown into a situation where I could not feel the love that Cooper was supposed to be feeling for Robin, it felt more like the SEAL that was trying to solve a problem.
Again I need to say that the author has a really good plotline at her hands but for my taste it is a little too much suspense and I would have loved to feel more of the romance.
