|Then You Happened
|February 3rd 2020
|From New York Times Bestselling author K. Bromberg comes a standalone contemporary romance about trusting fate and finding yourself again.
Jack Sutton was the man I didn’t want to need.
|I do not read novels featuring Cowboys ….
I do not read plotlines with horses and cattle ….
But I read “Then You Happened” by K. Bromberg …
There are Cowboy’s in this book, lot’s of hot weather, horses and cattle so you might wonder about my first statement. While there might be all of these things inside this novel this is far from a “Cowboy Novel” simply because it’s written by Ms. Bromberg.
Thrown directly in the middle of an argument the reader will never want to stop reading because the story is capturing your full attention at all times.
I admit that it didn’t take me that long to guess certain things – but I really have a vivid imagination and read tons of books per year – so do not mind me when it comes to that. Also it does not really matter if you think you guessed something or not because the story will still not let you go as you want all the details. And for me the focus was really the leading characters first and the storyline second.
If you read books by this author before (and I highly recommend to do that) you will know that the writing is flawless and the characters are beautifully developed. In this special case I could almost feel the heat of a summer in Texas on my skin and that is a feature in itself as we have winter outside and it is (depressingly) raining nonstop. So if you want to feel warm and need something to light your mood that alone is a good reason to read this book.
Now, what can I say about the characters? Like the plot suggested – Tatum is a mess of epic proportions – partly characterwise because she has been burned in the past and also because of outside forces. Jack, on the other hand, seems to have an agenda – which is obvious from the first time the reader gets to meet him. But he is commanding attention wherever he goes and whatever he says.
Throwing these two into one pot is a combination so explosive that only a good writing style can handle the outcome. And I am positive the readers will love what Ms. Bromberg did.
So we had me commenting on the plot, the characters and the setting – which leaves me with the dislikes … and I really had to sleep on that and what I came up with was Jack’s sister (and this is no real spoiler as it gives nothing of the plot) – I really dislike Jack’s sister…. so much that I even wondered if this book would be a series and one of it would feature her …. HOW would the author make me like that woman? (And I have no doubt – with all her writing magic – Ms. Bromberg def. would make me love her)
Would I recommend this book? Yes without a doubt and I think you will enjoy it as much as I did.
