Blurb : Should a person have to put their life on hold for another? Another, they planned to spend the rest of their life with? Another who has been in a coma for the past two years? Brielle Elliot has spent the past two years at the side of her comatose fiancé Keaton. Life is moving on around Brielle, but she has been dedicated to Keaton until Patrick comes into her life. Patrick is the COO of his step-dad’s company, he is rich, good looking, and his silky his voice alone makes panties drop. He has also been infatuated with Brielle since first meeting her in Business School. It seems as if fate has brought these two back together, but others have their own idea of how their story should end.

 

Review :  I’m really sorry but …

 

I was really looking forward to reading this book, because the blurb sounded so interesting. Eventhough I was not looking forward to a reading about a love triangle.

 

It turns out that there was not much to worry about. I am soo soo sorry and writing a negative comment on a book is never easy for me, because I know how much of his/her heart an author puts into a story.

 

But this whole plot just did not work out – like at all. I can not go into details because of the spoilers but there was so much wrong for me in the plot and character development that I found myself skipping pages and somewhere in the second half of the book even whole chapters.

My biggest problem was that I could not connect to  the characters and I felt eventhough the backgroundstory was well developed the characters themselves were missing depth.

 

Both men are not what I would have expected from the Blurb (again no spoiler) and Brielle would be better of alone instead of with any of those guys. The plot developed in a way that I can totally not agree with – and I am not talking abou if it has a HEA or not – that is not the question. The question is how the characters end up there .

 

I am really sorry about this – but from my very personal point of view I can not recommend this book to my friends.
