Synopsis new

Her life hasn’t gone as planned, but she’s about to realize that sometimes the best things happen when you stop expecting life to be a certain way…

When Rose Morgan put off her college plans to help her mother through a difficult time, she thought it would just be a bump in the road of her journey. She got a job to help pay the bills and started picking up the slack at home. But three years later, her bumpy ride hasn’t smoothed out yet, and Rose feels stuck. She’s working at a job she hates and living with a manipulative mother. She’s tired of feeling like her life has stalled, tired of the resentment and anger building inside her with each passing day.

Then Declan Connelly appears in her life, and even though the hot Irishman is seriously tempting, Rose is determined not to let him in. She’s afraid to suck anyone into her bizarre life, especially someone who seems too charming for his own good. She soon learns there’s more to Declan than his sexy accent and charismatic personality, though. He’s a good man, and he wants Rose in his life, baggage and all. He’s got his own, and he isn’t scared away like she originally feared he would be.

Everything in Rose’s life is changing quickly. It’s finally her time–time to figure out what she wants and what her future holds. Time to get swept off her feet and not fight it. But when her plans might take her away from all the amazing new things in her life, including Declan, Rose has to make a choice. Is she willing to chase her dreams, even if it means letting go of love?

my thoughts new

I’m sorry but this wasn’t a winner for me. This book has a lot of potentials when it comes to premise. However, I’m quite sad that it didn’t meet my expectations. The writing style of the author is beautiful and very easy to read and I have no problem with that, but then, I don’t know why I find it hard to connect with the characters, especially Rose Morgan.

The story was interesting in the beginning but as it progressed, it didn’t appeal to me anymore. The plot progression was a bit slow and I got really impatient for the thrill to finally come. The romance was also not so fascinating and sad to say, I didn’t find myself swooning over them.

It was supposed to make me feel affected because of the family drama and well, because there’s also a hot Irish man in the person of Declan Connelly, but I wasn’t. It has a nice and sweet ending though. 🙂

(I was provided a copy of this book by the Publisher in exchange for an honest review.)
