Can their bond withstand the test of time?Lauren isn’t looking for love when she spends a scintillating night with Reid, the sexy keyboardist of Thane’s Redemption. While their passion may be off the charts, her trust issues–and Reid’s secret life as a time-traveling covert agent–makes any chance for a relationship impossible. When operatives involved in a mysterious project begin dying, Reid defies orders and travels alone into the future to find the cause. But when things go dangerously awry, it takes all of his strength to get himself back to safety–and directly onto Lauren’s doorstep. While neither of them remembers their night of passion, their intense connection leads Lauren to help him. But as Reid’s memories reignite, will he be forced to sacrifice everything to finish his mission–including the woman he loves?
Here I am again with the next book in the âThe Songâ series by Nina Crespo. I know that the rating I gave the first book in the series was not THE best â but still I knew directly when reading âThaneâs Redemptionâ that I would be back to read the next one.
Because the plot of this series was just to unique to stay away. And my reasons for the not stellar rating were not among the plot itself. So here I am â after reading âReid’s Deliveranceâ â again confronted with this unique plot that seems to be getting better and better.
But also again faced with the writing style in which Nina Crespo presents this story that I cannot totally agree with. And I do not mean that in a bad way â I just always feel that she is too fast. There is so much more in that story that you could use and I feel like I want to hold up my hands to stop her and tell her to go slower, add a few pages and give the reader a little more time to enjoy the leading characters.
Actually I already had a better feeling with this book â than with the first one. I am not sure if it is due to the fact that I have gotten used to her writing style or if she changed it a little. But still I fell kind of in love with this unique plot and I whished that she would squeeze more out of the characters to make them a little deeper.
I know there is a 5 star plot in there â I feel it â¦ As it is now â the story itself is unique and I really love it and would like to recommend it so please create your own opinion on the writing style â¦ but the plot itself makes the book already worth reading.
And this was my Review on Thane’s Redemtion which sadly I could only rate with 3 Stars :
There are bad books and there are books that make me angry. And itâs days like these when I am not sure which is the worst scenario. If a book is bad than you can simply not finish it, forget it and be done. The angry books stay with you I think are worse.
Because, they with all there âwhat could have beenâ scenarios, keep your mind occupied for a long time. This is one of those books. It has a great plot idea. No scratch that â it has a UNIQUE plot idea. The writing is good and flawless â BUT and now comes the angry part. The fact that this story is a short story ruined everything.
There was so much in there ready to be extracted. And it was all wasted to the fact of writing it as a short story. The characters were missing necessary depth and the fact that the end was sort of âcut offâ does not really help.
Sure I noticed this is supposed to be a series so there might be coming more, but that does not help to ease the more than strange feeling after finishing the book.
I feel deprived â¦ I really liked this story idea and the writing but it did not get what it deserved and that makes me angry â¦.really really angry.
