Promise by Dani Wyatt was a kind of confusing book.
And I guess I am the odd one out here. I did just take a look at other reviews before writing mine which I rarely do, to not get into quoting other reviews. But since I found no indication on the book blurb itself â I checked the reviews that I saw but there is also no reference in them â so I am just going to put it out there â¦
Is there a second book ? Am I the only one having a #cliffhanger-kind-of-feeling ???
Not going into more details but it is something I do not like at all. I always want to know if I will be reading a standalone or not (you can thank Sylvia Day for that problem but she really messed me up when it comes to this)
I went into reading the book very open minded as I never read anything by this author before. And I liked her plot idea a lot. But during the actual story development there were a lot of additional side stories woven into the original that I felt were overdone.
They were distracting the whole plot. Actually they were also turning it into something more of a thriller kind of book. Which is not my genre anymore (I used to read it a lot).
The characters – Promise and Beckett – were developed with an interesting background and described well. But I had a problem into placing them together as a couple â again probably my bad.
It wasnât a bad book by all means, the writing is actually pretty good â It was just that for ME there were to many layers within this story and with my problem in connecting the leads it did not work out for me that well.
On the other hand I assume this book will appeal to readers that like a more âthriller-relatedâ approach in their romance novels â so enjoy.
