My rating: 3.75 stars
Jack and Syd spent a week in paradise. It was only supposed to be a fling. But life can be funny sometimes, and circumstances brought them back together again. Together they seemed to have found their happy ever after. But when Sydney is offered a chance at the career she has always wanted, she must leave Jack behind to follow her dreams. Can their love survive long distance? Sydney’s touring with a man every woman wants, but he only has eyes for Syd. And an unexpected tragedy leaves Jack feeling remorseful. Can the two find a way through to forever?
I am not sure what to say about this book. I liked it. I may not have loved it, but there is something about it that will grab a hold of you. The “love” between these two is intense but not that believable at the same time. It is too intense. It almost borders on exaggerated. Jack’s need to cling to Syd, even with her across the world is almost gag-worthy. However, the longing the two have for one another is kind of sweet. I know, it sounds contradictory.
There is enough drama in the story to keep you reading. It isn’t just two people lusting after one another page after page. Things come up, drama ensues, and relationships are challenged. That’s what we all want isn’t it? Something to cheer for?
The book is well-written, for the most part. There are parts where the cheesy factor comes in. I guess it is okay for cheesy in a love story, but I prefer raw and realistic over cheesy. Don’t take that to heart too much. There is raw and realistic too. I would just rather have it raw and realistic all of the way through. I am not a cheesy kind of gal.
The characters in this book are well described and likable and unlikable in their respects. The ones you should loath, you will loath. The ones you should like, you will like. Vi did a good job with the sub-characters in this book. They had enough presence to keep things moving along. They had the right amount of spotlight to create the desired effect they are presented for.
Overall, this is a book most will like, and some will absolutely love. There isn’t much about the book there isn’t to like.
